When it comes to weddings, one thing most couples find themselves hoping and praying for is decent weather (particularly if the ceremony, reception or both are scheduled to take place in the great outdoors!). In Scotland especially, we all know that holding your big day outside is always a bit of a gamble (no matter what time of the year it is), but for Nadia and Jamie, that risk paid off – big time.
Of course, after first announcing their plans to have their boho wedding outdoors, in September no less, there were some concerns raised by Nadia and Jamie’s family, who worried about the likelihood of rain spoiling the day. As it turned out, though, they had nothing to be concerned about because the couple’s nuptials ended up falling on what would be Scotland’s hottest September day in over a century!
With temperatures peaking in the high twenties and not a cloud to be seen, the day couldn’t have got off to a more perfect start for the pair, who had hired a venue, which looked onto a gorgeous loch for the event, and there to make sure everyone was well-fed and happy was our Hog Roast Cumbernauld team.
Tasked with cooking and serving our delicious Southern Slow Roast Menu to Nadia and Jamie’s 150 guests on the day, our catering manager, Steve, along with the rest of the Hog Roast Cumbernauld team, had arrived at the stunning site early that morning, where they prepared three beautiful meat options for the guests, along with our vegan BBQ pulled jackfruit buns and a selection of mouth-watering sides. On the off-chance of showers, they also erected a marquee for the guests to take cover under, which they kitted out with rustic dining tables and matching centrepieces.
The unnaturally warm weather at this time of the year made Nadia and Jamie’s wedding feel even more special, and the guests loved dining out in the sunshine, where they enjoyed Hog Roast Cumbernauld’s spectacular feast of BBQ pork butt, Cajun-spiced whole roast chicken and minted lamb with vegan ‘slaw, mac and cheese, mixed fries and golden corn on the cob.
