“We’re incredibly lucky to lie at the heart of such a rich and diverse food landscape here at Eckington Manor, with the beautiful Avon Valley and River Avon quite literally on our doorstep, as well as a fantastic variety of food produced from our very own farm and gardens,” said Judy Gardner, owner and founder of Eckington Manor. “With so many delicious gems on offer within such a small radius of the Manor, we wanted to create a menu specifically for our weddings that would allow our couples and guests to truly immerse themselves in the tastes of the region, offering a unique menu that couldn’t be experienced anywhere else.”

It also incorporates vegetables grown in the manor’s gardens, including heritage tomatoes and broad beans, as well as wild herbs and flowers such as elderflower foraged from the surrounding countryside. Eckington Manor works with a number of local suppliers from whom ingredients for the feast can be sourced, including Birlingham Asparagus and Oxsprings’ Air Dried Ham in Pershore.
