We catered for a stunning wedding in the heart of the countryside at Keythorpe Manor in August 2013. Guests were greeted on arrival with Mojitos and Stone’s No. 1 Cocktails and our delicious canapés. Our colourful beet macaroon, goats cheese and pear canapés proved to be a particular highlight with the guests.

Following the cocktail and canapé reception, guests were seated in the beautiful marquee for the classic three course summer menu. The confit chicken and chorizo terrine starter, overnight braised heel of beef main course and trio of desserts wowed the guests, and Stones Events staff kept the wine flowing!
