Beautiful Wedding at Rock Haven, Cornwall

It was a beautiful sunny day in Cornwall when chocolate fountain hire arrived at Rock Haven to set up two chocolate fountains in a marquee in the garden. The garden was beautiful with a pond and a swing.the couple had requested two large chocolate fountains, one with white chocolate and one with milk chocolate. We set up the chocolate fountains in the corner on round tables next to each other, each with an illuminated base and it looked stunning. The chocolate flowed beautifully and the fresh dips, including strawberries, fresh cream profiteroles, mini sugared donuts, fresh pineapple and marshmallows! The entertainment for the evening was provided by a brilliant Michael Bubble tribute act who had travelled all the way from Liverpool. He was great ! He looked and sounded just like Michael and was a huge success ! It was a lovely evening with clear skies and many guests mingled outside. A brilliant day!

Wedding white and milk Chocolate Fountain Hire in Knebworth

Wedding white and milk Chocolate Fountain Hire in Knebworth

Visits to Knebworth are usually all about music festivals or visits to the historic house set in the rolling countryside of Hertfordshire , however our reason was much more fun Becky had booked chocolate fountain hire to provide not one but two chocolate fountains and a fruit palm tree for her wedding reception that was held in Knebworth barns. On arrival we could see that this is a really nice  setting to have a wedding and  barns looked amazing. The chocolate fountains were set up near the back of the room and were soon flowing with chocolate of two kinds- the large chocolate fountain had Belgium milk chocolate and  the smaller fountain was filled with white Belgian chocolate. This  is a really good combination for guests who like different types of chocolate. We set up the fruit palm tree on the opposite side of the room on the buffet tables so guests could help themselves to the fruit and either eat it alone or dip the fruit into the chocolate fountain. We were set up quite early in time with band playing for the bride and groom ‘s first dance.

As the guests were eager to get stuck into the fountain we found the bride and groom to have their first dip from the chocolate fountain, now all of the other guests going start. The wedding guests needed no encouragement and we were soon feeding lots of guests with both chocolate fountains getting lots of use. Guests needed a little more encouragement to use the fruit palm tree and a lot of people think these are for decorative purposes only. Soon it was time for the  band  to start their first set, and t his got all of the guests up on the dance floor rocking the night away which signalled our time to leave Knebworth and  head home. This was a really nice reception in a great setting!

White and Milk chocolate fountain for Indian Wedding

White and Milk chocolate fountain for Indian Wedding

At chocolate fountain hire we love chocolate and at a wedding last weekend we found lots of people who love chocolate as much as us! The three most popular types of chocolate to use in our chocolate fountains are Milk Chocolate, While Chocolate and Dark Chocolate, and we provided tow of these; milk chocolate and white chocolate. We arrived at the Copthorne Effingham Park hotel and set up both chocolate fountains in the foyer in time for the wedding guests to arrive and  have a drinks reception with canapes  followed by dipping items into the chocolate fountains.  It was a close run thing which of the chocolate fountains was more popular, as both appeal to different people for different reasons, the milk chocolate is very smooth and tasty and the while chocolate is quite sweet but great tasting. After sampling the delights of our chocolate fountains the guests were called into the main room to for their main meal, which also was the time when the  bride and groom arrived. Before joining the guests in the banqueting room the bride and groom sampled the milk chocolate fountain – what a great pre dinner appetizer!

Chocolate Fountains come in different varieties and at the wedding reception of  Taj Ali & Khadijah Ali in the Guild Hall in Southampton last weekend all three of the most popular varieties were required. Three chocolate fountains were displayed at the entrance In the Guild Hall, either side of the chocolate fountains were fruit palm trees to give the guests a healthy option whilst choosing to dip into the dark chocolate , milk chocolate or white chocolate fountain. With the impressive set up complete all we had to do was wait for the bride and groom to make their entrance and of course hold back the guests from starting on the chocolate fountains and fruit palm trees – not an easy task with all that chocolate about!  With the bridal party’ s arrival crowd gathered to meet the happy couple and of course watch them have the first dip on the chocolate fountain. This of course meant that all of the chocolate fountains and fruit palm trees were open to all of the guests, and they needed no invitation and for the next four hours there was hardly a moments rest for the fountain and of course the chocolate fountain hire team! This was a really nice colorful and friendly wedding to be at it was great to see the guests enjoying all of the varieties of chocolate and the fruit palm trees.
