Chocolate and Fruit provide the perfect wedding desert for Dorothy and George

The Beautiful Wedding of Dorothy and George On a gorgeous day at the end of May the ChocolateFountain Team headed for Edgware,  London for the wedding reception of Dorothy and her new husband George. Dorothy had ordered a chocolate fountain and two fruit palm trees for that extra WOW effect. She certainly got it! I set the two palm trees either side of the fountain and after I had put in the real palm leaves and decorated the base with pineapple head they looked really great. I used two different types of melon, red water melon and orange cantaloupe melon, along with kiwi strawberries, pineapple and clementines. The colour theme for the wedding was purple and yellow , and it looked stunning! The evening was great fun with lots of dancing and laughter and good food and best of all, good chocolate!

Chocolate Fountain Hire at Chocolate Lovers in Hemel Hempstead

On a brighter than normal Saturday in May the Chocolate Fountain Hire team travelled to the stunning venue of Boxmoor Lodge on the outskirts of Hemel Hempstead.  We were providing our stunning 5 tier Belgian Chocolate Fountain as a desert at the reception of Katie and Luke’s Wedding. The marquee was stunningly decorated in purple and ivory with an arch of ribbons and balloons. We arrived after dinner and set up next to the bar area. Within minutes the smell of delicious melted chocolate was filling the room, the youngest guests were desperate for a taste! The Bride and Groom wanted to be the first to try the Chocolate Fountain and after many photographs of just the impressive fountain they were snapped tasting the scrummy treats.  The bride then helped the youngest guests offering them chocolate covered marshmallows and strawberries.

The remaining guests then took the cue and tucked in, with chocolate brownies, fudge and freshly sliced strawberries being devoured, drenched in delicious melted chocolate! After the tasting the stunning bride and groom took their positions on the dance floor for the first dance. During this and the following songs a videographer was recording messages for the newly married couple. The DJ and dancers took a break while a live singer took over and wowed the guests with his vocal talents. The guests were then treated to a delicious finger buffet including yummy homemade sausage rolls! After a few more dips the guests then went back to dancing the night away with the happy couple!

Recently the Chocolate Fountain Hire Team headed for the New Forest, and the beautiful Brockenhurst for a wedding. When we arrived the balloons were being strung together outside to make an arch way for the guests to walk through. We quickly unloaded our equipment, including two large fruit palm trees, which we had made at home. In the hall, which had been decorated with chair covers and organza tie backs we set up the two large fruit palm trees on a large table.

They looked stunning, standing 7ft tall with their real palm leaves on the top. Each tree contains approx 500 pieces of fresh fruit, strawberries, cantaloupe melon, honeydew melon, satsumas, pineapple, kiwi fruit, and water melon. All the fruit is freshly prepared on the day in bite sized pieces, and put onto the tree with cocktail sticks.

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!!

The bride and groom were announced onto the dance floor to have their first dance and  this signalled the opening of the chocolate fountain as well as the buffet that the hotel had provided.

We were quite over run for the first 45 minutes with guests quite happy to stay at the chocolate fountain and  make use of the dips and cover then in chocolate. Quite a few children had the taste for the chocolate too i am not sure how they managed to eat as much as they did! Mid way through the evening the bride and groom made their way over to the chocolate fountain and sample some of the dips. During the evening the band played some great tunes for the wedding guests to dance to and eventually it was time to pack away and leave ascot for now at least!
