The thing I love about my job is allows me to cook in some of the most strange and wonderful places.
Last week I got to drive over the Pennines and head to Deep Dale Farm in Keldholme to cook for 180 people in a barn. It usually houses horses over winter and has no kitchen. I knew this would be something special.
I had gone a reckie a couple of weeks before and I couldn’t quiet imagine it, looking at the horses in their stables, how D + L were going to turn it into their dream wedding venue, but WOW what a transformation.
The wedding space consists of two barns next to each other, one was used for the wedding ceremony and later on a chill out area. The other was used for eating and lots of dancing. D + L had organised a fantastic bar that kept all of the guests hydrated with the best ales, ciders and cocktails (supplied by Those Four Mobile Bar), fire spinners, two bands and a trio of dj’s to keep their guests happy until late into the evening.
With the “kitchen” set up behind the eating and dancing barn, I got to cook with the sun on my face and watch the day unfold.
It is always so special to be able to be part of people’s big day but this felt extra special as I got to camp at the farm the night before (always a treat to be able to be in the countryside!) which helped me to really relax into the wedding vibes! I got to see the bride, groom, their friends and family each playing their part in setting the day up and making it truly amazing!
The sun shone, the smiles were wide and everyone was in high spirits. Congratulations to D + L. You are a pair of super stars!
Deepdale Farm is such an amazing space. If you are looking for a wedding venue with a difference, this is the place. Relaxed, spacious and a great blank canvas it is perfect for you to put your own mark on.
