You may think of a Wedding Breakfast as a very formal affair, but it does not have to be. The joy of having a Broadoaks as your Lake District wedding venue is that you can have the wedding you have always dreamed of and have any kind of wedding breakfast you want.
With a gorgeous country house and Lakeland fells as your backdrop your wedding breakfast will be spectacular whatever you choose, so why not choose something you really want. If you wand full formal tables with crisp white linen and a delicious three course menu, then we can do that but if you want this menu tailored to your specifications or want to have something completely different we are always happy to make our couples’ wedding day just the way they want it.
Alternative Wedding Breakfast Ideas
Here are a few great ideas to make your wedding breakfast a little less ordinary, from serving a gin or cocktail flight rather than paired wines to simply ensuring you have your favourite foods on the three course meal, whether that is gorgeous Lakeland lamb for mains or a squidgy chocolate brownies for dessert, or having a Moroccan style starter to remember your first holiday together, even the simplest of changes can make a wedding breakfast more personal.
If you want to make bigger changes to the traditional set up, then the team at Broadoaks can help you with how you want your day to be. Whether it is a big lake district wedding or just close friends, and family these alternative wedding breakfast ideas are just a flavour of what you can have at our intimate and beautiful wedding venue.
Picnic Time – The joy of seeing a little wicker basket, either set up on tables with gingham tablecloths inside or set up in the beautiful grounds of Broadoaks with picnic blankets to sit upon makes a real statement at a wedding. You can fill these picnic baskets with the most delicious foods, you are not limited to simple sandwiches, you can have pots of pate, scones, individual tarts and quiches in all your favourite flavours, luxe scotch eggs and all sorts of sweet treats all wrapped up in pretty paper and bows to match your wedding colours.
BBQ & Hog Roasts – Whether you have a winter or a summer wedding the smell of a BBQ or Hog Roast is something all your guests will enjoy and it makes for a much less formal way for everyone to eat and mingle with each other. Guests can also choose to put their own condiments and sides on from the favourites that you have chosen.
Street Food – One of the big trends is street food and you may want to incorporate this at your Lake District wedding, whether this is just your favourite types of cuisine or whether you want to include street food from countries that mean something to you as a couple.
Whatever type of food, drinks or decorations you choose for your Lake District Wedding the Broadoaks team can help you make it the perfect day you have always imagined!
