Beautiful & The Feast was founded by Keda and Will, as they relocated from bustling North London to the blustery north Cornish coast.
They moved to start a business which reflected their ideals. To source locally grown and reared stock, to build real and honest relationships with their suppliers, to understand the journey from product to plate and to support their local economy. Their emphasis on sourcing the best natural produce is paired with a wish to provide vibrant menus which excite their clients and leave their guests wanting more.
The desire was to create relaxed and open dining experiences which encourage conversation and togetherness. They wanted to bring high-end sharing style eating, so often seen in top London eateries, to couples getting married in the west country. Their wedding menus offer flavours from all over the world, use cooking methods from yesteryear paired with forward thinking use of ingredients, fermentation and smoking. They want their food to be nourishing without ever being dull and they want wedding guests to feel like they’re at the best dinner party they’ve ever been to.
Founder & Director Keda says ‘For Will and I, food has always been something which we celebrate as well as being central to all our celebrations. It’s the way we bring people together and we love nothing more than watching people enjoying the food we create. Weddings bring all your loved ones to one place to share your joy and we believe that the wedding breakfast is a time to celebrate and indulge in tastes, flavours and ingredients that reflect those wonderful feelings.’
Beautiful & The Feast curate menus for their canapés, starters, mains, deserts and evening feasting which change annually. Couples can choose as many different options as they like and all main courses come with up to three vegetable sides free. Their cooking styles and menus reflect their love of healthy wholesome ingredients. Vegetables are held in high regard, not second to meat or fish. They have vast experience of preparing dishes for all beliefs, intolerances or allergies and believe that people shouldn’t have to eat substandard dishes based on their dietary requirements.
They also offer a bespoke menu service, whereby they work with their couples to design a personalised package, so if you’ve got dreams to have a particular cuisine or to serve your guests your favourite supper, they’re more than happy to accommodate.
Keda says ‘My advice to couples planning their big day would be to find suppliers that share your ideas and vision. The wedding market is huge and can feel daunting, but there WILL be people out there who can make your day exactly as you see it. Stay true to your vision, ask as many questions as you need to and I am sure you will be able to sit back and enjoy all elements of your day.’
As the business has grown, Keda and Will have built a team who share their ethos; a group of foodies, with a keen eye for style, and a love of good honest ingredients. Which all plays a part in the experience for their clients; a calm, relaxed and supportive process which makes the run up to their weddings as enjoyable and serene as possible. Their team go to great lengths to make each wedding day seamless and stress-free, whereby all the hard work goes on behind the scenes and the guests and couple experience nothing but good vibes.
Beautiful & The Feast provide good food for good people and have loads of fun in the process.
