Circa Blog

Circa Blog To Our lovely clients old and new, It’s been a while since we’ve blogged here at Circa HQ, we are all taking a little time to reflect on our 2018 season, and what a wonderful season it’s been for us at Circa! We’ve had the pleasure of being a part of so many stunning weddings and events. Where do we start!? From the launch of our Circa Indian street food van, on her maiden voyage at Laughton Barns in June, for the fantastic Al & Julie’s ‘Ski ‘inspired summer wedding, to hosting the Crystal Palace mascot Hawk at Northease Manor, for Emily & Matt’s big day Liv & I want to share with you some of our experiences and expertise over the next few months, your feedback is what keeps our creativity flowing, and adding to the Circa family! We have so much to be excited about for 2019, with new and exciting projects in the wings. We’ve already had the pleasure of meeting and working with so many of you, weather your wedding is now a fond memory, (please send us pics!) or if you have the joys of the final preparations still to come, we can’t wait to share in your excitement. Olivia & I have both been working as Event Managers for Circa Events for four years; we have seen the business growth from strength to strength in this time, of which we are enormously proud to be a part of! We have both been in the catering & hospitality industry for Circa 18 years between us. We thrive on the importance of quality food and fantastic service being at the heart of your celebrations, we love to hear your ideas and never say no to a challenge! Our passion will always be The food. As Liv and I are massive ‘foodies’ ourselves it seems very fitting we both work within this fabulous industry, working with our fantastic trusty local suppliers, you’ll always find us hanging around the pizza oven for our doughy fix of cheesy pizza goodness at the end of the night! Food aside, by far the best part of our jobs is the people we meet along the way who inspire us, the beautiful venues and suppliers we have the delight of working with (you know who you are, thank you for putting up with us for all these years!) We are all looking forward to 2019, meeting all our booked clients, menu tastings & exciting new projects (and more attempts at blogs, coming soon!) Lots of Love, Jade and...

Your Wedding Day

Where it all goes….. Your wedding day is the biggest day of your life and here, at Circa Events, we are proud to say that we can make your dreams come true. A question I am asked all the time is ‘How Much !?!’ The price for a 2 course wedding breakfast is £35 and our canape, three course wedding breakfast is £43 per guest – this includes all of our meetings at your chosen venue, your wedding tasting meal to decide on what you would like to eat for your big day, all tables, linen, glasses, crockery, chairs, etc. How does it all happen I hear you ask? Well, our team, from your personal event manager to the packers, from delivery team members to set up staff, will make this happen. Your big day… We have set up the kitchen, brought in equipment, the chefs have arrived hot from our farm based kitchen in our refrigerated van and are creating your wedding menu. Our waiting staff are busy putting the final touches to your venue, checking tables and your event manager is making the final checks to the day before the staff meeting and any final points to cover. And as if by magic the guests arrive, the venue is ready to go, our staff are meeting your guests with drinks and the kitchen is serving your selected canapés. Your event manager is overseeing all areas of the venue keeping in contact with you and family members on timings and using their experience to gauge the running order. The bar is fully set up with trained bar staff offering a range of beers and spirits to your guests to your specification. Your wedding breakfast: the kitchen is ready and all your guests have been seated. The head chef and event organiser are fully trained to ensure every element of the meal runs smoothly and is served at the correct time. Your waiting staff, serving their allocated tables, are keeping a safe eye on the guests, topping up their drinks when required. The meal is finished, all the tables are cleared and our staff have set out the teas and coffees and are serving your guests. The bar staff are serving drinks and the kitchen is getting ready for the evening buffet. The room has now been transformed for your evening party, the buffet is served and your guests party the night away. For a wedding based on one hundred guests Circa Events provides: two chefs working on two days preparation time with your designed menu using local quality ingredients, one kitchen porter to wash up, two packers to collect and pack the vans with everything that is needed for the day, four members of staff to set up the venue, ten staff to run the wedding day, three staff to return to the venue the following day to...
