Multi-Cultural Wedding Menus at BMA House

BMA House London Wedding Venue

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.

Nonsuch Mansion

Getting to Know – Nonsuch Mansion

Interview With: Julie Gray

Venue Name: Nonsuch Mansion

Website: www.nonsuchmansion.com

Location: Nonsuch Park, Cheam, Surrey – about half an hour from London

What type of venue is Nonsuch Mansion and how old is the building?

That’s an interesting question! The main part of the mansion was built in the late seventeen hundreds, during the reign of George IV. It was home to wealthy merchant Samuel Farmer and five further generations of his family until it was given to the public in the 1930’s. The foundations of the building are much, much older, from a keepers lodge that was part of the fabulous, ‘unequalled’ palace that was built here 500 years ago by King Henry VIII. The palace itself was ruined centuries before the mansion was built but we like to think that the spirit of Nonsuch lives here. The Tudor Gothic architecture was designed by Jeffrey Wyatt as an echo of its majestic predecessor. Nonsuch Mansion has been many things over the centuries and has always held a cherished place in the heart, memory and daily life of the whole community.

What can a couple expect from having their wedding at Nonsuch Mansion?

Their own mansion for the day, exclusively theirs. We only ever hold one wedding at a time. Bovingdons (the caterers) have twenty two years experience of London weddings and we know how to tailor-make your day to your specifications.

What is the capacity for a wedding ceremony and wedding reception at Nonsuch Mansion?

Two of the staterooms are licensed for ceremonies; the Orchid Room for 130 guests and the Rose Room for 80 guests. For the reception the entire mansion can hold up to 250 reception style or 120 for dinner but there is also the option of a marquee on the lawn for anything up to 1000.
