Your Gloucestershire and Wiltshire Wedding - February/March 2023 (Issue 37)

COOL WAYS WITH CRÊPES We want a fun, innovative way to feed our wedding guests, what do you suggest? Meet the expert: Caroline’s Little Kitchen is a catering business, run by Caroline Taylor, based in Wiltshire. A mobile vintage Citroen H van named Hugo has been turned into a food van serving fresh handmade sweet and savoury crêpes which make a great alternative to the traditional wedding cake. Caroline says: Sweet fillings on the menu include biscoff spread with milk chocolate and marshmallows and biscoff biscuit with banana, fudge and salted caramel sauce, plus the popular apple and blackberry crêpe served with brown sugar and cinnamon. We have been serving homemade granola pots with fresh berries, berry puree and greek yoghurt which can also be made for vegan guests – they’re ideal for breakfast the morning after the wedding. Savoury crêpes include Wiltshire ham and cheese; pesto, tomato, cheese and rocket and smoked salmon with cream cheese, dill and lemon. Duck with hoisin sauce, cucumber and spring onion or chicken with salsa, guacamole and cheese are other popular choices and so are the mini canapé-style crêpes, perfect for weddings, filled with Wiltshire ham and cream cheese, smoked salmon with lemon creme fraiche and brie with cranberry plus many more combinations. As well as vegan options, delicious gluten-free choices are also available. 07919 440 146,; THE PERFECT PAIR We have a couple of older relatives who are attending our wedding alone. How can we make ensure they’re looked after? Meet the expert: Poppy Hansford, a qualified healthcare assistant has launched The Wedding Guest Chaperone. Poppy tells us: I can assist with getting relatives organised and ready for the day ahead. I can chauffeur guests to the venue and keep them company throughout the day, from fetching cups of tea to taking them to the toilet if they need assistance. When they’re ready, I can take them home and get them settled for the evening. I offer an additional on-call service during the night of the wedding so that everybody can enjoy themselves and let their hair down. 07494 921 524,; Meet Poppy at The Big South West Wedding Fair in April, EXPERT ADVICE 55
