Another beautiful day for a wedding, in a charming, nostalgic setting. We returned again to Maplehurst Manor to cater a wedding reception for approximately 80 guests. The family and friends of the Couple were extremely polite and courteous. The Bride and Groom were easy going, wanting a welcoming atmosphere where their guests could enjoy the setting, relax with food and friends, and enjoy a hearty, well prepared meal to Celebrate the Couples new life together.

We served appetizers outdoors in the beautifully landscaped courtyard. Items available consisted of:
Assorted cheese and crackers*including gluten free
Fruit platters with homemade banana dip
Our homemade spinach and cheese squares
Brie cheese with a homemade Apple walnut topper (A huge hit- we had guests waiting while we prepared a second one!)...
Served with fresh baguette bread
Guests were able to relax in the courtyard while listening to live music from a very talented musician.
The Bride had always wanted a wedding with this style- vintage tea cups and layered dishes, atop lace tablecloths with simple roses and charming oil lamps. This wedding was classy, yet had the welcoming feel of friends and family that the newly married couple was seeking.
We served our Maple balsamic salad to each table, then proceeded with the buffet line. The food consisted of:
Creamy garlic mashed potatoes
Baby carrots in a gingered orange glaze
Rolls & butter
Dills & Olives
For dessert, the Mother of the Bride provided her famous trifle in lovely china bowls, and the mother of the groom provided her famous chocolate cake :)
Homemade chocolate and vanilla cupcakes in fresh buttercream frosting
Brownies with icing and a chocolate swirl
Buckingham shortbread cookies with wedding-matched toppings
Then to finish the evening off, we prepared for Midnight buffet-
Assorted Panini sandwiches with condiments on the side
Vegetable platters with fresh dip
Pumpernickel bread with spinach dip
What a charming and classy event this was. This Venue is such a wonderful backdrop to any wedding style. We will return again to Maplehurst Manor one last time this year, then will not be able to accept further bookings here. Maplehurst has been bought by a company that will offer their own in-house catering. You are certain to enjoy what they have to offer.
Up next is our wedding at the Market Hall Performing Arts Centre in Peterborough, Ontario
