The reception will be held at Horwood House, in the village of Little Horwood South-West of Milton Keynes, about 25 minutes drive from the church. A drinks reception will be held in the manor lounge at 1530. During this time we will take some photographs and have a chinese tea ceremony for parents and relatives, in the manor bar adjacent to the lounge.
We will aim to seat guests for dinner at 1700 in the Cook Suite. Please let us know when you RSVP if vegetarian meals are required. Children have a choice of 1/2 portion of adult meal, or a childrens meal (melon, followed by chicken nuggets and chips, with ice cream for dessert). Again, please let us know when replying.
The menu is likely to be as follows:
Starter: Prosciutto and melon with compote of raspberries (veg. option: Melon, compote of raspberries and cinnamon fromage frais)
Main: Grilled salmon fillet on roasted sweet potato, courgettes and butternut squash, green beans, asparagus sauce (veg. option: Wild mushroom and leek risotto with parmesan)
Dessert: Vanilla cheesecake with butterscotch sauce. If you're not keen on salmon / ham and would prefer either of the vegetarian options, just let us know.
Speeches will probably be before dinner, which will be followed by tea and coffee, and dancing. The Cook Suite has its own private bar, which will remain open as long as we wish (drinks can only be purchased by residents at the hotel after 0030 as the cash register closes at this time). Lauren and Lawrence will be staying at Horwood House
