It’s not just about the cricket: Weddings.
It’s not just about the cricket here at the County Ground and over the next few weeks we will be looking at exactly what we can do for you off the field.
This month’s weekly stories are focussing on Weddings here at Somerset County Cricket Club.
Quite simply, the County Ground, Taunton is the perfect venue for your wedding reception. With the new Somerset Pavilion set to open later this month we now have three settings in which you can enjoy your special day.
Every wedding is unique and our experienced Conference & Events Team will go the extra mile to ensure that every part of the day runs smoothly. From the planning stage through to the event itself, our staff will work with you every step of the way to make sure that everyone in attendance has a special day to remember.
Whilst all weddings are different, they all have one thing in common: The food! Our Executive Chef Simon Safe has a tremendous amount of experience within the industry and he knows exactly how important the dining element of your special day can be. “The perfect menu is absolutely vital when it comes to someone’s wedding day,” he said. “There are a number of factors that go in to planning what food will make it to the table. It can even depend on what time of year it is. We are also able to cater for any special dietary requirements that guests may have.”
“Obviously from my point of view the food at a wedding is extremely important. Our ingredients are all locally sourced, whether that be meat from local butchers or local fruit and veg, we try to utilise ingredients from no further than 20 miles from base. However, if there is something that someone particularly requests then we will do everything that we can to acquire it. After all, hopefully you will only have one wedding day so we want to do everything we can to make it perfect.”
Simon and his excellent team of chefs work closely with our Catering Team in order to ensure that every detail of the day is taken care of. “No two weddings are the same and in order to make sure that the day is a truly memorable one, both the Conference & Events Team and my team of chefs like to meet with the happy couple on a number of occasions throughout the planning process in order to make sure that their every need is catered for. We want to be there for them every step of the way. We are even happy to provide them with a sit down tasting session so that we can be sure that the menu will enhance their special day. That way we can know for sure that on the day they are happy with what they will be eating and that their guests will enjoy it too.”
