Sam and Rob get married at Rochford hall

Here at chocolatefountainhire.com we have  provided our fountains  in some very grand venues and  a recent booking too us to a beautiful venue. The team travelled to Grantham, to Stoke Rochford Hall for the wedding reception of Sam and Rob. It is a beautiful hotel, set in stunning grounds, and the room the reception was held in had high ceilings covered in ornate plaster work. The colour theme of the wedding was blue, and the tables were decorated with large blue vases and blue and diamond gems. The chocolate fountain was set up in the corner of the room, with the fruit palm tree sited in front  of the ornate fireplace.

Sam had ordered a large milk chocolate fountain, and small white chocolate and a large fruit palm tree. It all looked delicious! The fruit tree is made up of cored out pineapples, threaded onto a steel pole with bite size pieces of fruit secured with cocktail sticks! The fruit was fresh watermelon, honeydew melon, kiwi, strawberries, orange segments and pineapple! All good for you, and the tree looks great! The small white chocolate fountain was very popular, with the guests enjoying the different flavour! It was a really great event, and the bride looked georgous!

Lucy and Adam’s Wedding Reception in Ross

Lucy and Adam’s Wedding Reception in Ross

At chocolate fountain hire we get to visit all arts of the country and  a recent booking too us to Herefordshire.  We arrived at the hotel to provide dessert for Lucy and Adam’s wedding reception. We set up the chocolate fountain in the bar area  whilst the wedding guests were relaxing after the wedding breakfast.  Chocolate Fountains are always much anticipated at wedding with guests eager to dip into the chocolate and  the wedding was  no different with an audience of lots of children watching the chocolate fountain being set up with eager anticipation. They didn’t have long to wait, we were soon set up and ready for the bride and  groom to have  their first dip on the chocolate fountain.

This signaled the chocolate fountain open to all guests and  in no time at all everyone was  tucking into the array of dipping items that we supplied. Also at the wedding was a  photo booth, where  guests  took turns having  fun interactive photos as a memento of the night. Eventually it was  time for us to clear away the chocolate fountain and  leave the guests in Ross to party the night away!

White Chocolate for Farnham Wedding Reception

White Chocolate for Farnham Wedding Reception

On a sunny Sunday in June the chocolate fountain team travelled the short distance to the stunning rural venue of Northbrook Park Wedding Venue in Farnham. We had been invited by the groom who had thoughtfully decided to book a White chocolate fountain as a naughty treat for the female guests. We arrived as the speeches were drawing to a close and discreetly set up behind a screen. When choosing through our extensive list of dipping items the groom asked to for special requests of pretzels and raspberries. These were both brilliant choices and became firm favorites of the guests.

During the reception the guests were enjoying a brilliant live band and as an extra treat they were provided with freshly baked Cornish Pasties! Both meat and vegetarian options went down incredibly well and were a delicious way of combining the groom’s Cornish heritage with the rest of the party, also on the tables and behind the bar were traditional Cornish ciders! As the guests had had their fill of chocolate they turned their attentions back to drinking and dancing, while we departed!

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!

Surprises for guests at Andover Wedding

Surprises for guests at Andover Wedding

At chocolate fountain hire we  love nothing more than  providing fruit palm trees as a healthy addition to chocolate fountain hire, and at a recent wedding this is exactly what we did. We arrived at HQLF in Andover  and set up out large chocolate fountain as well as a large fruit palm tree. We were hidden away in a  special room as a surprise for the wedding guests, also the guests were treated  to a vodka  luge and scalectrix racing. The  fruit palm tree is a real work of art with fruit such a pineapple, melon, clementines kiwi fruit and strawberries spiralling around the trunk to create the wow factor for guests.

As soon as the bride and groom had “tested” the chocolate fountain the rest of the wedding  guests  started to get stuck in! A few  guest needed prompting to use the fruit palm tree as it does look like its there for show however  the fruit was  soon stripped – we love healthy guests!!! We provided a selection of dips including cream profiteroles, strawberries, marshmallow, jelly babies and  many more! With so many dips some guests didn’t know where to begin. With the end of the evening we packed up the chocolate fountain and  left Andover and headed home  leaving  behind lots of guests satisfied with their fill of chocolate and  of course fruit.

Its Pimms o’clock At Andover Wedding

Summer may not be here as such but the sun was shining in Andover recently as Rob and Ella  got married and celebrated in style at the Fairground Village hall.  We arrived and set up a drinks fountain and filled it with pimms for the wedding guests to have a  drinks reception when they arrived from the church service. We also provided a bowl of fruit such a strawberries, apple, oranges and of course mint for guests to add to their glass of pimms. As it was such a hot day the beverage fountain was in constant use but at chocolate fountain hire we are quite used to this so we had ample supplies of pimms!

As soon as the guests made their way into the main room for the wedding breakfast, we set up the chocolate fountain and in no time at all warm Belgium chocolate was cascading down the  fountain and and array of dipping items were ready to use. The bride and  groom soon emerged to have their first dip at the fountain before the rest of the guests tucked in. The chocolate fountain was  popular throughout the evening with guests young and not so young alike and we packed up and  left at the end of the evening with everyone having had a good taste of the chocolate fountain.

Marriage Blessing of Nicola and Chris from Christchurch

 The Chocolate Fountain hire team travelled to Ringmer near Brighton to take a Chocolate fountain and fruit palm tree to the reception of Nicola and Chris. The happy couple had previously got married in Christchurch, New Zealand, but wanted to have a celebration for friends and family that couldn’t make the wedding. As well as the chocolate fountain, We provided a large fruit palm tree and the bride liked the spiral pattern for the fruit, and so we obliged! Not many clients request this shape, but it looks stunning and it was a real pleasure to make for her. When we arrived, the couples guests were tucking into hog roast and salads, yummy! We set up in the corner of the hall, and after Nicola and Chris had their photos taken by the fountain, the guests were keen to try the Chocolate and eat from the tree. Guests often think that the fruit trees are just works of art, and we have to encourage them to take the cocktail sticks of the  fresh fruit and eat it!

Chocolate Fountain Hire were asked to provide a chocolate fountain at a wedding at the De’Vere Hotel in Chesham for Giles and Maria’s wedding reception. It is a venue that we had worked in before so we went straight in and unloaded all our equipment and started setting up.

We were very busy as the guests feasted on yummy chocolate brownies, naughty jelly babies, sweet meringues, sugared mini donuts, heavenly British strawberries and fresh chunked pineapple, delicious! We offer an unlimited variety of dipping items, meaning the bookers may choose as many different dipping items as the would like! We even top up the supplies throughout the hire period!
