croquembouche at wedding in surrey barn cake

Louisa and Mahdi’s Wedding at Bonham’s Barn

For this wedding I was commissioned to make a croquembouche and buns to serve 100 people.

A croquembouche similar to Olivia's wedding was requested. (the bride was a guest at Olivia's wedding) and 300 + choux buns for dessert.

Bonham's Barn is a great venue in Alton, Hampshire. An old barn with an upper floor. Wood burning stove and plenty of space for a band, dance floor and tables.

The croquembouche was a fake, it was still made of real buns and sugar and rice paper peonies, but, there was no filling inside. This enable a large sculpture to be constructed that looks awesome and it can last the whole day and into the night. I prepare and deliver to your caterers the choux buns and a chocolate sauce for serving as a dessert. It is the best way to do it. I like no problems on the day and for things to run smoothly.
