Wedding Files: The Caterer!

16.01.14

Ooooh, I have exciting news to share today. We have chosen the caterers who will be taking care of the food and drinks at our wedding this May! The puzzle is slowly coming together and I feel that now that we have catering organised, the rest will flow together nicely. We are very excited to be sharing our special day with Femke and Eddy, the husband and wife team behind the successful catering service and cooking school Hééérlijk.

I had a very clear vision of the kind of food I wanted to offer our wedding guests. Without giving too much away, this was centred around wholesome, locally sourced produce, made into simple but delicious dishes served in a relaxed, low-key manner. I draw a lot of inspiration from Kinfolk, Simply Slow and food bloggers such as the immensely talented Beth Kirby of Local Milk. At the same time, we will have guests from all over the world coming to join us, and from all walks of life, so we wanted to make sure there would be something for everybody, which meant the menu would need to be diverse, but refined.

When we met to discuss our wishes with Femke and Eddy, I was pleased to see that we shared the same vision when it came to the look and feel of the day, and seemed to be inspired by similar things. One look at their Pinterest boards and I knew we were on the right track. We ate cake, drank wine and pretty much decided it was a match made in heaven!

Hééérlijk {which translates to Deeelicious!} isn’t only about the food. They strive to offer the full package, including the styling and decorating, to ensure that each event is uniquely crafted as well as catered for. While Eddy’s the king of the kitchen and mastermind behind the menu, Femke is deeply inspired by food styling. They are a real team, which is very evident in the images above. Aren’t they absolutely gorgeous? They really capture the kind of look and feel we want at our wedding.

Relaxed, simple, organic, and absolutely delicious. I just know that Femke, Eddy and the team behind Hééérlijk will make sure that we receive all that and more. They have crafted the most stunning menu for us, which I can’t wait to share with you, but more importantly, to taste!

Thank you for following along on my wedding planning journey. With all my family on the other side of the world, and some of my closest friends too, it’s been so great to share the process with you {and them} in this way. Each time I hit publish, I get all excited and can’t wait to share the next installment! Hope you’re enjoying the posts, too. If you’ve missed out on anything, get the whole scoop by heading on over to the Wedding Files column. I must say, that as I peek at the first posts I wrote, the look and feel has remained the same, which is a relief to see because it’s been a year and tastes do change. One major aspect we were steering towards in the beginning has changed, but that worked out for the better. More on that later!

Have a great weekend,

Holly x
