Wendy and Len get Married at the Royal Motor Yacht Club in Poole

We were booked to bring a large 5 tier 48″ milk chocolate to the Royal Motor Yacht Club in Poole for the wedding of Wendy and Len. When we arrived we set our table up on the second floor overlooking the marina which was full up with gorgeous boats! It was a lovely room and the view was fantastic over the sea, with the sun setting it was so beautiful. The guests meanwhile were enjoying a champagne reception with canapés on the third floor with a balcony and an even better view than us! Things got busy after the sun went down and the guests came into the function room for more champagne and dancing, and of course chocolate fountain!  We use a speciality chocolate for all of our fountains and it is Belgian and delicious! When we crept out the party was in full flow……….gonna be going for a few more hours I think!

Seaside wedding for Donna and Duncan

Seaside wedding for Donna and Duncan

Trips to the seaside are not something Chocolate Fountain Hire get to do very often due to the amount of summer events however over the long Jubilee weekend in June  we travelled to  Bournemouth to cater a chocolate fountain for Donna and Duncan’s wedding. It was a lovely hotel, right on the seafront and really pretty. I set up in the main room where the guests had been eating, on a round table with a long black table cloth. It was decorated with tiny sparkly gems.

The bride had requested that we take lots of photos all evening of everything that was going on, including her guests around the fountain. We took lots of everything including the first dance, the candy buffet table, the bridesmaids, of course the chocolate fountain and lots more! It was a lovely occasion with the guests enjoying the warm luscious chocolate and fresh dips, yummy!

Wedding Chocolate Fountain Hire in Christchurch

Wedding Chocolate Fountain Hire in Christchurch

It was the most glorious day when Katie and Richard had their wedding reception at The Manor in Christchurch on the outskirts of Bournemouth. The 5 star restaurant with guest accommodation was a wonderful setting, overlooking fields, and so peaceful. We set up the Chocolate Fountain in the open area by the patio doors, and the chocolate flowed beautifully with the late afternoon sun reflecting from the shiny chocolate. We illuminated our display in a pale purple to compliment the beautiful colour scheme.

The fruit, strawberries, pineapple, satsumas and grapes, all freshly prepared by the team was very popular with the wedding guests. The gorgeous bride Katie and her groom Richard came and had their picture taken at the fountain before the children came and had their fill. The Manor in Christchurch was a lovely place to spend the evening, and the Chocolate Fountain Team certainly love their jobs at beautiful venues like these!!

Wedding chocolate Fountain Hire at Dibden Golf Course

Wedding chocolate Fountain Hire at Dibden Golf Course

Recently chocolate fountain hire were called upon to provide a chocolate fountain as part of Maria and Dan’s wedding reception which took place at Dibden golf centre in Hampshire. We arrived and set up the chocolate fountain in the back on the room. The bride had selected dips such as cream profiteroles, marshmallows, coconut bites and strawberries to name but a few, the choice of green for the illuminated base fitted very well considering the reception is being held at a gold course.

Soon after we had set up the chocolate fountain the bride and groom had their photographs taken next to the chocolate fountain having their “first dip” and then the fountain was open to all of the guests. It was almost a stampede! the chocolate fountain was very popular with all of the guests over the course of the evening. Some guests were having their first chocolate fountain experience and it was great to see them returning for more!

Tying the Knot with Plenty of Choc

Bournemouth famous for more than just sprawling beaches and ice-cream. Pick up a copy one of Thomas Hardy’s novels, The Fog, or even Roald Dahl’s The Witches, and you’ll see literary references to this town echoing through the pages today. Furthermore, JRR Tolkein retired there, Mary Shelley is buried there and Oscar Wilde taught there. Who’d have though the town could  be so rich in literary history?

It has to be said that after visiting Bournemouth as many times as the team at Chocolate Fountain Hire have, we can see why these scribe’s couldn’t stop writing about it!

We visited the sunny seaside town again recently to provide a Belgian chocolate fountain for Jon and Ryan as part of their civil ceremony celebrations. Armed with extra jelly babies at special request, we headed to the gorgeous Chine Hotel in Boscombe Spa for chocolate fondue fun late into the evening.

Guests, as well as the happy couple, were thrilled with our cascading chocolate fondue fountain, returning time and time again for more. Chocolate fountain’s never fail in keeping guests entertained – if music be the food of love, then a chocolate fountain is certainly the food of fun!

Jon and Ryan’s special day was certainly enjoyed by their friends and family, creating another memorable day in Bournemouth. Chocolate Fountain Hire are available to help make your special day, well, special too!

Chocolate Fountains in Bournemouth: Part 2!

Remember we said Bournemouth was one of our most popular locations? Well those Bournemouth folk love chocolate fountain’s so much, the team at Chocolate Fountain Hire have been to two wedding’s there in the last week!

Penny and Adrian returned from their spectacular wedding in Barbados to a wonderful reception at the Village Hotel, Bournemouth. Alongside their Belgian chocolate fountain, they supplied guests with sparkling pink and cream cupcakes instead of traditional wedding cake, which fitted in with the gorgeous colour scheme. The chocolate fondue’s illuminated pink surround fitted in perfectly with the pink theme too, as did our selection of sweet dipping strawberries and pink wafers.

All these visits to the South Coast got Chocolate Fountain Hire thinking what seaside treats would make good dipping items in a chocolate fountain. A Bournemouth stick of rock maybe?

Bournemouth is a great place to plan a wedding ceremony or reception, as it holds the most promise for sunny weather in the summer months. Chocolate fondue fountains provide a great feeling of summer and help create a party atmosphere whether you’re inside or out.

Chocolate Fountain Bournemouth

Bournemouth is the happiest place in the UK according to a 2007 survey, where a hearty 82% of residents questioned said they were very happy with their life. Perhaps it’s to do with all the chocolate fountain’s? Bournemouth has become one of our most regular haunts over the years and we’re always thrilled when we get a chance to visit.

Our most recent visit took us to the Cumberland Hotel – a cliff-top venue with stunning art-deco interiors – for Michelle and Rob’s wedding reception. Chocolate Fountain Hire provided a large milk chocolate fountain with plenty of strawberries, bananas and marshmallows for dipping. The choice for chocolate fondue hire complemented the sumptuous black, white and hot pink colour scheme perfectly, and the chocolate fountain itself looked more than a bit tempting set-up beneath a sparkling chandelier.

Chocolate fondue hire remains a popular favourite for wedding receptions and civil partnership ceremonies. It encourages interaction around a common focal point, and gives everyone a chocolate fountain treat in the process!

Rob and Michelle’s guests had a wonderful time and proved there may be some truth in that survey. Happiest place in the UK or not though, you always know that where there’s smiles and chocolatey fingers in Bournemouth, there’s never a chocolate fountain far away.

Chocolate Fountain Hire Bournemouth

We can never get enough chocolate here at Chocolate Fountain Hire. Bournemouth can’t seem to get enough too! One local hair salon surprised their clients by throwing an Easter themed bash and wearing bonnets whilst giving out chocolate eggs. It was our large Belgian milk chocolate fountain that acted as centrepiece however, surrounded by marshmallows, strawberries, mini donuts and pineapple chunks for dipping.

Clients and staff alike tucked into the chocolate fondue, while a circus performer on stilts convinced passers-by to head inside for a free consultation!

Chocolate fountains are a great interactive tool not just for birthday’s and weddings. Whether you’re holding a corporate event, or a party for your favourite clients, Chocolate Fountain Hire in Bournemouth offer great solutions when you need a fun talking point.
