With Love from Gibraltar
Planning and hosting Sam & Christina’s wedding was a total joy from the very first chat. Based in Gibraltar, the couple had to put complete trust in us to deliver their dream day.
Sam and Christina wanted to bring together friends and family from far and wide for a gorgeous candlelit ceremony at The Chimney House, followed by a magnificent feast and party at The Mowbray. Non-stop laughter, tears of joy, incredible flamenco dancing and the greatest of times!
This is our signature menu. Our sublime chefs are inspired by our love of feasting and have taken it to a new level... So passionate about the creation and invention of freshly made and ‘wild food’, matched with working closely with local suppliers - the fruits of their labour are quite literally a taste sensation! The Laden Table menu is a big tick in the real food lovers box.
Feast & Fiesta
On The Table
Mowbray bread & house butter, pulled British pork terrine with house pickles, burrata with preserved & fresh tomatoes
The Main Event
Chargrilled Yorkshire 32 day dry aged Picanha steak, (a Brazilian cut with a nice piece of fat on top to keep the meat juicy & delicious) served medium rare, sliced and dressed with salsa verde.
Whole roasted fish with lemon & herbs, soft potato gnocchi baked with tomatoes, capers & basil topped with crispy garlic pangrattato - a real treat!
Sprouting broccoli with hazelnut butter, pickled mushrooms tossed with radicchio & Spenwood sheep’s cheese with fat cut chips.
Rich sea salted chocolate tart with pecan brittle & ice cream, plus caramelised apple crumble & proper custard.
Finally we served a charming sweet treat to finish the evening - Mowbray scent ganache: The glorious scent of The Mowbray, custom made for us by Essence + Alchemy distilled into a square of silky dark chocolate ganache. We used smoked tea, rose & house-grown geraniums to capture our essence.
We’re delighted to share a few words and beautiful moments from their wonderful day with us!
Over to Sam & Christina
“Our experience with The Chimney House & The Mowbray is ALL positive from the beginning to the end! We 100% made one of the best decisions by picking these two venues for our ceremony and wedding reception. Choosing the wedding venue is by far the most important element of the big day and picking one when you live abroad can be even more daunting. This was the case for us living outside of the UK, we chose Sheffield for the location as it is Sam’s hometown and it ensured all of our family could be together, we were also lucky that the most amazing venue we had ever seen, yours, exists in Sheffield!
As soon as we came across you guys online, we knew it was exactly what we would like for our wedding day, aside from the two spectacular buildings and styling which we fell in love with straightaway, we met Lucy and Sally in our first consultations and we knew we made a really good choice here. The care and attention throughout is first class from them and their team, they truly want to create the most amazing wedding day for you. We were also in with a huge winner with The Mowbray kitchen, they are superb world-class chefs and all our guests including the fussiest complimented the food on the wedding day. We are both into our good food and drink so this was a top priority for us, we chose The Laden table for our day and everything was delicious and cooked perfectly. We have been told by many guests that the apple crumble was the best they had ever tasted, and the meat and fish got lots of praises too! Our wedding cake was also baked by The Mowbray kitchen; it was just beautiful and also very tasty. Our music entertainment was from our own playlist and with the impressive surround sound system available it allowed us to have our personal style and tunes during the meal, and for the dancing party time.
We cannot recommend this venue enough, the kind professionalism and organisation plus the great modern and cultural taste overall allowed us to trust the whole day was going to be relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable, it really was so much fun for us and turned out to be the best day of our lives and the wedding of our dreams!
Can’t thank you enough, we wish we could repeat it all again, but we have our memories forever!"
