A Delightful Tasting Event at Davenport House

At Davenport House, we love providing our happy couples with an experience they will never forget, and to give them a sense of just how special their wedding day will be here, we sent out invitations to join us for one of our Tasting Events.

We welcomed our brides and grooms-to-be to our Shropshire wedding venue to sample our fantastic food and drink, soak up the atmosphere and experience how they could choose to celebrate at Davenport House. With the sun shining outside and the house wonderfully decorated it was the perfect opportunity for our guests to enjoy our venue at its finest.

When our couples arrived, they were welcomed into the Great Hall to enjoy delectable canapés and a fun Bellini station where they could create their perfect refreshing cocktail.

The mini shepherd’s pies, curried lamb and yoghurt dip and smoked salmon (to name but a few) certainly went down a treat. Our guests were free to wander through the house, mix with other couples who were tying the knot here and meet some of our trusted suppliers who could help make their dream wedding a reality.

Soon it was time for the much-anticipated wedding breakfast, which took place in the elegant Drawing Room. Our expert caterers prepared starters of seared scallops with minted pea purée and their signature smoked bacon Scotch egg, followed by roast fillet of beef and pork tenderloin for the main course. To round off the meal, a trio of desserts was the perfect way to give our guests a taste of some of the sweet treats they could choose for their big day.

If there is one thing that a good dish needs it’s a great wine to accompany it! Our extensive collection was on display so that our happy couples could come and sample a few of our favourites and start thinking of the pairings that would work with their menu. And if all the exquisite wedding food and drinks weren’t enough to keep everybody entertained, a brilliant guitarist played throughout the Tasting Event, creating a relaxing atmosphere while the couples wined and dined.

As one final treat, our brides and grooms could venture out into the idyllic grounds and enjoy delicious ice creams from our vintage cart. It was the ideal way to end the Tasting Event and the perfect accompaniment to the sunny weather.

If you’d like to come and see Davenport House for yourself, arrange a visit today and let us give you a personal show round. In the meantime, why not find more inspiration for your wedding day here by taking a look at the Incredible Styled Shoot at Davenport House. You won’t regret it!
