For a wedding that’s a little less formal, a little more intimate, but still totally memorable and beautiful, Afternoon Tea is perfect – in fact, it’s fast becoming the wedding of choice for couples who have a limited budget, or just want something a bit less full-on than a traditional three-course breakfast.
At The Green House Hotel in Bournemouth, one of the Independent’s top 50 UK wedding venues, we’ve got our own eco-friendly take on the idea, with a sumptuous Afternoon Tea Package for between 40 and 70 guests at an incredibly reasonable cost that won’t break the bank. For more details, check out our website.
But we don’t expect you to buy before you try. So for a taste of the treats on offer, we’re inviting you to come to the Green House this month for Afternoon Tea for two… but pay for only one.
Whether you book your wedding with us at the end or not, you won’t regret it: there are a range of exquisite finger sandwiches; freshly home-made fancies such as carrot cake and chocolate fudge brownies baked with New Forest eggs from Fluffets Farm; and homemade scones (fair-trade chocolate chip or traditional) served with Dorset clotted cream and preserves handmade with locally sourced fruit. There’s honey from our rooftop hives, too.
Quality Fairtrade loose-leaf teas, from English breakfast to organic herb and green teas, have been sourced responsibly by the Gilded Teapot, an independent specialist merchant down the road in Dorchester. And the coffees are locally roasted in small batches on a beautiful reconditioned 1940s roaster by the Dorset Coffee Company. There’s also organic English sparkling wine on arrival and for the toasts.
If you like what you see (and taste), book your wedding and pay your deposit by the end of September 2014, and we’ll throw in a case of six bottles of Prosecco to help you celebrate finding your perfect venue!
