    North Yorkshire Weddings – Ox Pasture Hotel

    So a couple of weeks ago I published a post on the wedding services offered by Ox Pasture Hotel near Scarborough. If you haven’t seen the post take a look here.  I was offered the chance to experience the service offered myself and decided to agree.

    So on a typically changeable English summer’s day, I drove up to North Yorkshire to check out Ox Pasture for myself. It really is a hidden gem-maybe a bit too hidden as I struggled to locate the right country road and took a detour around the verdant countryside.

    However, on arrival it was definitely worth the wait. A sweeping approach, lined with trees and lavender greeted me.

    My boyfriend and I were greeted at reception like old friends by the lovely Lynsey, general manager at Ox Pasture.I didn’t tell her but she reminded me so much of Joan Cusack in Sixteen Candles, a film where Joan’s character granted a young girl 16 wishes. Well Lynsey could not give me Hugh Jackman or a flat stomach, but she certainly went ut of her way to make us welcome.

    Wedding Drinks – When and What to Serve

    So weddings and wine go hand in hand like bacon and eggs, but where does that tradition come from and what wine should you be serving at different times during the big day?

    Hen Party Celebrations and Fizz

    A glass of bubbly has historically been associated with luxury and the parties of the royal courts and aristocracy of Europe. So what better way to celebrate your forthcoming nuptials than with a glass of something with a fizz. I recently had a bottle of riondo pink frizzante spago that is absolutely perfect for a hen party. A gorgeous blush colour in an elegant slim bottle it was easy to drink and easy on the purse! It’s the sort of sparkling wine that would go down a treat on a summer’s day chatting with friends before the seriously bonkers part of the hen party begins!

    Drinks Reception

    It’s usual to provide a drink for guests as they arrive at the reception. It may be an aperitif, like sherry (medium or dry), a glass of champagne (or sparkling wine) or maybe bucks fizz or Pimms. There should also be soft drinks like orange juice available, especially if there are children at your wedding. For a winter wedding, mulled wine is a nice option. At an afternoon reception, you might even want to serve tea at some point.

    During the Wedding Breakfast

    Red and white wine is the usual choice but you may opt to have an afternoon tea instead-with tea or water as the drink of choice.

    The Wine/Champagne Toast

    Throughout the ages, wine has been used for celebration. Often and among many people, wine has signified life, vitality, love, and a life of plenty. Often and among many people, drinking wine from a common cup has been the intimate mark of deep sharing. “Entwined as the Vine. . . .”

    The feeding of the wedding cake and the wine toast is a derivation of the Wedding Eucharist nuptial wherein a part of a ceremony is their giving each other a sup from the Cup of Love and to eat from the Bread of Life and Health.

    Champagne is the usual choice, but sparkling wine is perfectly acceptable.

    Evening Reception

    You may opt to have a paid bar-this is absolutely acceptable, but why not get the venue to create a signature cocktail especially for your wedding? Quirky, yummy and reflecting your personality-you’d be on to a winner.
