The Roundhouse in Camden is one of London’s most impressive venues, and for this summer wedding the iconic space got a romantic makeover, complete with huge floral decorations, soft lighting and a real show-stopper of a wedding cake.
The wedding was attended by 500 guests, with catering provide by our award-winning caterer Create Food and Party Design. The night began with a drinks reception and canapes – the couple chose Forest mushroom choux with cream cheese and tarragon, which was served in white troughs filled with wheatgrass, chunky tuna tartare in cones, salt beef en croute, burrata soft scoop with avocado puree, balsamic and parmesan crisp and barbecue prawns. Entertainment at the reception came from four electric violinists, who played on podiums as guests came down the stairs from the Roundhouse’s balcony to the Main Space.
Once guests were seated for the wedding breakfast, Create served a starter of sun-dried tomato and mascarpone ravioli, followed by a main course of roast dry aged beef fillet, with griddled English asparagus, smoked potato, plum tomato confit and beef jus. Vegetarians were served pot roast cauliflower, with Indian spices, mango chutney, heritage potatoes, heritage carrots and pickled fruits.
The couple chose two of Create’s decadent desserts; half of guests were served a chocolate sphere filled with Madagascan vanilla ice cream, rich double chocolate brownie and salted caramel chocolate sauce. The other half of guests enjoyed a silver and violet bavarois bomb, with Douglas fir pine icing, split pastry and aerated blueberry ice cream. Desserts were followed by coffee and petit fours – but the treats weren’t over yet!
Every table tucked into their own cheese board, which included classics like Comte, Mrs Bells Blue and Baron Bigon, a selection of crackers, fruit chutney and dried fruits. No meal is complete without cheese!
Later in the evening the couple cut their wedding cake, which was served to guests along with the bright edible roses which adorned the outside of the cake.
Then the party really got underway! Guests danced the night away within the dramatic surroundings of the Main Space, and enjoyed traditional entertainment like the Greek money dance with their guests.
As guests partied, they could visit the Laduree treasure chest of macaroons, and enjoy mini tubs of ice cream and decadent macaroons. Cocktails were served by LiquidChefs, and circulated amongst the guests by the Create team. Further entertainment included three bands, one of which was a traditional Greek band, and a monogrammed dance floor which was full all night!
Of course par; guests enjoyed soft white rolls stuffed with halloumi, grilled courgette and aubergine, and Create club sandwiches, filled with smoky English pancetta, pulled chicken, cherry tomatoes, rocket and avocado mayonnaise.
