Love and marriage

Tapas for starters

"Love and Marriage, Love and Marriage, go together like a horse and carriage. This, I tell ya, brother, you can't have one without the other" ... Bonnie and Clyde they were made for each other. Casa Rosada catered its second venture into Portuguese wedding wonderland this weekend.
When it comes to entertaining on a large scale, it’s all about reliability. And, let’s face it, keeping up appearance - the hyacinth bucket, the food, the flowers, the frippery, all with a flourish, are what make the day go, and hopefully, all seemingly with a little ease. It should be  the closest you will get to a snog on a plate.

"Bless this day
pinnacle of life
husband joined to wife
leaps up to behold
this golden day"

The bar by moonlight

For serial wedding guests it´s often not the couple that got hitched, but another element of the occasion that they remember. Maybe a particular floral festoon, the quirky standard lamp by the open air bar, the metres and metres of unbleached muslin swagging and shading the celebrant´s tent, but more often than not at the end of the day it comes down to the food. What sticks in the memory is whether the food was good or bad. The day will be remembered either way.
