Christmas and Romance

We have seen so many wonderful photos of festive engagements and Christmas proposals over the past week and it gives us hope that, even in the midst of this pandemic, love shines through.

We are ever hopeful that come late spring we may be close to living our normal lives again and what better way to trumpet that than with a celebration of love. We are available right now to help you with the planning for your dream day……we simply cannot wait to start talking menus and venues, drinks decorations…..it’s been too long.

Contact us on 07970 616331 or lynn.handley@hotmail.co.uk and let’s start planning the most exciting of days together.

Nominations and Celebrations

weddingawards nominated (2)

We were thrilled, in this time of uncertainty, to have been nominated by our past couples as Best Caterer in the 2021 Wedding Industry Awards. Catering for weddings is the ultimate compliment for us as it is the most important day of our clients’ lives, and we treat it so. These fabulous celebrations of love will be back soon and we cannot wait to start again.

You can vote for us here – VOTE FOR THE MAIN EVENT – it would mean so much to us.

We are constantly checking the guidelines as they change almost daily, and it is incredibly frustrating for us and for those couples who have long-planned their Summer 2020 Weddings. But when the time comes to celebrate together, we shall be ready and waiting!!

Wedding Memories

As we enter high summer we are touched by how many couples are having to completely rearrange their wedding plans and reschedule for next year. Weddings are the most joyous of events that we do at The Main Event and we are missing them terribly. We have been looking back at photographs and reflecting on happy times past.

Happy Days

We are making the most of our down time by working hard as we move into our brand new unit later this year at glorious Drove Orchards on the north Norfolk coast. We are taking so many bookings for next year from couples who either planned for 2021 or have had to rebook from this year.

There is nothing more exciting than preparing food for happy families and friends on the most important day of their lives and we cannot wait to start all over again as soon as we are allowed.If you have an enquiry for any event, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us, we will get back to you straightaway.

Bank Holiday Monday in the sun….

I think it’s fair to say that Bank Holidays have always been exceptionally busy times for us in past years but not so in 2020! So far Easter, VE Day and Spring BH all free to enjoy the sun and appreciate enhanced birdsong, our own gardens and inventive ways to keep in touch with much missed family.

Loving the sun! Not so sure about the abundance of grey hair which seems to be winning the battle for tonsorial elegance….

That said, we are so very sorry for countless numbers of clients who have had to postpone their dates until next year. One couple, Jenny and Rob, were already staying at their venue with family and friends in March ready for their Big Day on Sat 21st when the rug was firmly pulled from under their feet! What a graceful, understanding attitude they had and now looking forward to April ‘21.

No matter what happens the rest of 2020 we shall be back bigger and stronger for next year‘s wedding season. Watch the progress of our new unit on fb and insta and should regulations relax in coming weeks and you feel a party coming on, we’re just at the end of the phone and open for business!

Keep well, everyone. Lynn and Nick

Weddings and a wonderful community

Today we have joined the brand new Association of British Wedding Businesses, a great group that brings together those wonderful people and organisations who come together to create the most incredible memories for happy couples. Everyone from caterers, wedding planners, florists and much more.

By supporting this industry, we all hope be able to overcome this awful time for us all and be in a position to help to celebrate many more weddings in the future and therefore create a million more memories that last a lifetime.

 

Some Information on ABWB – “The Association of British Wedding Businesses is an industry body that supports the wedding professional community within the UK. This includes wedding venues, photographers, caterers, florists, gift lists and the many different types of wedding business that support our nation’s robust wedding industry.

This organisation was established in light of the COVID-19 crisis, by a board of founding members, representing different sectors of the industry, who have the passion and expertise to provide leadership and a voice for the community as a whole. The founding board members will establish the association’s initial governance, codes of conduct, goals and membership structure. The complete list of founding board members will be announced soon.

In addition to the founding board, several committees will be established to focus on specific sectors of the industry, and expert advisors within the British wedding industry will be introduced to provide further insight and advice to members.”
