catering for 4 weddings, 2 football matches and a very busy restaurant.
Day 1: Bank Holiday

catering for Fleetwood football clubs match day hospitality. We had a great turnout
of 194 enjoying their 3 course meal before they head out to the pitch side to
witness Fleetwood finish the match against Wycombe with a 1-0 win!

Day 4: Thursday 24th
April – Wedding number two of the week:
as Mr and Mrs Sparrow finished saying their vows in front of their friends and
family at the great hall at mains we prepared to turn their ceremony room into
a delicately decorated dining room whilst the new bride and groom stepped
outside for their photographs. The bride sat down to a tender breast of chicken
for her main course, served with baby leeks, peas and courgettes in a creamy
white wine sauce topped with a mini puff pastry. Whilst her new groom enjoyed a
goat’s cheese galette with plum tomatoes, a rocket salad finished with a pesto
and balsamic glaze.
Meanwhile back at the restaurant preparation for another
busy evening was underway with a 30th birthday celebration being
amongst the evening’s schedule.
Day 5: Friday 25th
April – As the team prepared for our penultimate wedding of the week for Mr
and Mrs Gallagher. The team back at the restaurant both front of
house and back of house had a very busy night ahead of them with a table of 46
booked in amongst numerous other booking for another 30th birthday
celebration. This one however was a surprise so all guests arrived before the
birthday girl who looked overwhelmed on arrival. It was a pleasure catering for
such an occasion.

Day 6: Saturday 26th
April – This day was by far the busiest of our week, we started off the day
with two teams split between Fleetwood town and the great hall at mains. The
team at Fleetwood was catering for maximum capacity before the guests went out
to watch Fleetwood play Southend United, which ended with a 1-1 draw.
Whilst this was underway there was another team at the great
hall at mains preparing to serve our biggest and final
wedding of the week, the newlywed Mr and Mrs Peacock sat down with 102
guests to enjoy their wedding breakfast, all of whom got the chance to indulge
in a delicious rustic strawberry pavlova with chantilly cream for their sweet.
All the while the team was returning from a busy match day
at Fleetwood back to the restaurant to get ready for a very busy Saturday
evening. The atmosphere in the restaurant was great as families and friends
dined together and enjoyed their evening out, along with another birthday
celebration which saw a table of 24 come together to celebrate.

Day 7: Sunday 27th
April – As the final day of Twelve’s busy week came around we had two
services left in the restaurant before the week came to a close. We dined for a
selection of people who came out to enjoy Sunday lunch with us and then again
in the evening we had our last birthday celebration of the week come through the
doors for a great evening.
All in all we here at Twelve had a very busy yet successful
week which we got to enjoy at numerous different venues with numerous different
people and parties.
