A taste of Suffolk

Laura Burgess wanted to keep her wedding to Andrew Greenman as ethical as possible, including a menu sourced locally in Suffolk.

“One of the biggest joys of our wedding day was the menu, which I took great care over.

As a self-professed food lover, I wanted everyone to enjoy a true taste of Suffolk and so I spent some time with my mum visiting farm shops and food halls in Suffolk looking for ideas,” said Laura.

The catering company had never done a Suffolk menu before but even discovered some new ideas like white strawberries and raspberries to go perfectly with the desserts.

All the meat, fish and vegetables came from Suffolk, and Laura made sure that guests could read about it on the menus.

“The keg of Adnams ale went down a treat, too, and didn’t last very long,” added Laura, who runs a company specialising in eco holidays (www.ecoescape.org).

Laura grew up in Suffolk and the couple married in the Shire Hall in Woodbridge with the reception at the Tithe Barn in Sproughton.

One of her top food tips is to explore the local cheeses. “We created a cheeseboard buffet for the evening guests, which went down really well,” said Laura.
