The BMA House weddings team have been embracing the truly multi-cultural society that they are proud to live in, and in-house caterers BaxterStorey were recently set the test of designing bespoke menus to incorporate elements from two contrasting cultures and fuse them into one mouth-watering menu.
The task of designing a full menu from cultures as diverse as Italian/Irish or Spanish/Sri-Lankan became an exciting challenge for their chefs, who pooled their wealth of experience in global catering techniques to successfully deliver a unique menu enjoyed by both families.
Guests of the Italian/Irish couple were delighted with their menu, which began with starters including a traditional anti-pasti of cured meats, marinated vegetables and buffalo mozzarella accompanied with Irish brown soda bread. Main course options included baked salmon or beef wellington, with vegetarians enjoying a braised barley risotto.
The team were as equally creative when it came to the Spanish/Sri-Lankan fusion, blending sauté chorizo in cider with pimento and smoked paprika starters, to king prawn curry with curried dahl accompanied with Sri Lankan roti bread topped with deviled squid as a main course option.
If you have special wedding menu needs and would like to challenge the creativity of the BMA House chefs, or if you are looking for a little more traditional menu, BMA House would be delighted to provide you with ideas to suit your needs, and the in-house wedding planning team will deliver a flawless event from the first moment to the last dance.

Interview With: Richard Knight
Company Name: Your Perfect Day
Location / Coverage: Hertfordshire, Essex, Kent and beyond
Your Perfect Day is Richard and Alan. We produce exciting, innovative and creative Wedding DVD’s and video. Your Perfect Day has over ten years experience in this ever evolving, innovative and creative industry. Throughout our careers filming weddings and in video and DVD production, we believe we have proven ourselves to be extremely dedicated and professional. We only use state of the art techniques, from the equipment used to film the wedding to the software used for the eventual product – a totally unique personalised wedding keepsake. The quality of our work speaks for itself, in fact we set the standards that other companies rarely achieve using this incredible medium!
We’ve been filming weddings for 10 years. Alan and I are long term friends, both having worked in film and animation before turning our skills and keen eyes on the Wedding video market.
We cover Hertfordshire, Essex, Kent and beyond. An international wedding is high on our wanted list for sure!
We provide a friendly and fun service. Filming weddings is our livelihood and for that reason alone we are totally professional in every aspect of what we do, rather than earning a little extra pocket money. This is our business and our passion!
Producing something that people become emotional about every time they watch it. Weddings are happy days…we like happy days!
Time and time again we hear that a couple’s only regret is not having their wedding filmed. For those who do, they tell us it’s worth every penny. They get to see so much of their big day that they never knew about. They can re-live the memories of their biggest day ever, time and time again.
Start to finish or whatever suits the bride and groom. We can also film online wedding ‘save the date’ invites which are becoming popular.
We have many favourites for so many different reasons so it’s hard to choose just one; fireworks or lanterns are always a winner. But if I had to choose, it would be Laura and Rob’s wedding; the poem Laura’s brother wrote about the couple is simply beautiful.
George Clooney or Brad Pitt in the Oceans films.
Make sure you can communicate with them; after all, your videographer is one of the people who are likely to be at your wedding day the longest. Also make sure you see THEIR own work and DON’T just book based on the price.
