So my church is in the middle of its annual 21 days prayer & fasting right… And of course this is when I receive an invite to the much anticipated tasting event held by Favour Catering & Events.
Favour catering and events are a family run business with years of experience. their passion is to provide beautifully presented delicious food and excellent customer service. they have a distinguished reputation for bespoke catering and ARE official partners with many amazing 5* venues across london and the uk.
the first tasting of 2017 was held at the hilton tower bridge, with a select group of luxury suppliers who have all built stellar reputations within the industry for supplying 5* service. FCE really went out of their way to ensure their GUESTS enjoyed an experience that delighted all the senses.
the sound of steel drums travelled through the room and down to the reception announcing that something special was taking place that evening. (a few hotel guests abandoned their afternoon tea to follow the caribbean music).
upon climbing the staircase guests were greeted by lorraine who warmly welcomed everyone and offered cocktails made by the talented fce staff. a variety of colourful beverages Infused with FRUIT AND flavours that can transport you from london in the middle of january to an exotic island beach in the height of summer.
THE 70 GUESTS IN ATTENDANCE were given the chance to meet with other suppliers including goodtimes photobooth which provided A MODERN SPIN ON CLASSIC photoBOOTH FUN . just like mummys, who were on hand with their magnificent wedding cakes and tasters for every guest. afmena events provided a magical touch and decorated the tableS to help paint a picture of true beauty. the perfect wedding STORY were available to inform guests of how they could eternally capture their most special day.
ONCE they HAD BEEN GIVEN A TASTE OF SOME OF THE MOUTH-WATERING CANAPE OPTIONS THE COULD HAVE THEY WERE WELCOMED INTO THE MOORE SUITE. WITH DJ MRI ON HAND TO SERENADE THE GUESTS,
FCE AND AFMENA EVENTS HAD PARTNERED TO TRANSFORM THE ROOM INTO A REAL MINIATURE WEDDING. FEATURING THE ELEGANT MIRROR TOP TABLE AND GOLD BEADED GLASS CHARGER PLATES THAT FCE CAN ALSO PROVIDE.

as if the food wasn't enough fce & their lovely suppliers came together to offer special prizes to the couples who had the most romantic "how we met story"... on the night we heard cute and timeless stories form "met at church"' "were friends since uni" to more unusual ones like "stalked her for days" and "proposed on the first date".
4 Happy couples left the night with boxes of cupcakes from just like mummys, bottle of champagne courtesy of fce and the lucky winners were gifted with a pre-wedding shoot by the perfect wedding story.
