Karl & Kate's Wedding Reception

9th March 2015

Luckily for Karl & Kate the sun was shining on Saturday 5th March when they held their wedding reception at the restuarant. Following the ceremony at St Marys Church in Petworth the newly married couple and their 150 guests made the short journey through the cobbled streets of Petworth by foot.  

On arrival at The Leconfield guests were greeted with a glass of champagne before making their way to the first floor. Karl & Kate had arranged for exclusive hire of the restuarant for their special occassion but opted for the comfortable surroundings of the first floor with it's private dining rooms and lounge area for guests to relax in.  Our smaller private dining room, The Woodcock Room, was transformed into an area to entertain the children with colouring books and games laid out on the large table.

With so many guests the couple had opted for a canape reception allowing everyone to circulate and spend time together.  They asked head chef David Lewis to select the canapes for them and he offered a selection of hot and cold options including miniature Venison Shepherds Pies, Thai Fish Croquettes and Chicken Liver Parfait Toasts. This was no mean feat as David and his team prepared 1500 canapes by hand.

An excellent Jazz band took centre stage on the first floor landing and entertained the guests throughout the afternoon and into the evening. 

Karl & Kate were delighted with the day "The staff and management of The Leconfield were absolutely amazing in all aspects of the arrangements and the delivery of the service on our wedding day. It was a delight to be able to walk from St Mary's church, down Lombard Street and share this incredible place with all of our family, friends and loved ones. The location, ambiance and dedication of the staff really contributed to Kate and I having an outstanding memorable and distinguished day - thank you to everyone who was involved."
