Well where do I begin with this colourful, beautiful, creative, fiesta of a wedding!?!?!
Mirlah and Nik are high school romancers together from a very early age, they share a vibrant and colourful history and indeed future which shows off in style at their wedding, I’m sure Nik won’t mind me saying that Mirlah definitely took the lead in the style of décor for the wedding but Nik sure did have a good say in what food they wanted, with the wedding being themed on a central American fiesta, inspired by their travels there.
You should know at this point that Mirlah is a graphic/web designer by trade and has her own wedding stationary business Best day ever and after the wedding styling she pulled off at her own wedding I reckon there is a space for wedding styling too!
I fist met Mirlah at a tipi open weekend two years ago, I was showcasing our newly built Tommys tortilla stand, and at this point Mirlah got her wedding catering creative juices going, drove home that night to tell her fiancée “ I have met some one…… To do our wedding catering” (this still makes me laugh and I can just imagine Niks face as she told him that sentence) Mirlah was quick to get a meeting with me to be sure I wasn’t booked up and sat down with a coffee to talk food.
Mirlah already had her vision, they wanted food stands… kind of street food style where people could come up and have a smaller portion of many dishes.
Nik is also a mad pop corn fan and seemingly he can graze on it all day! So we came up with a few flavours of pop corn and they were placed all around the venue along with some spiced roasted nuts. All the canapés served were in ball shapes to reflect Maracas
So onto their menu U:
Spiced roasted nuts Lime and chilli popcorn, Chipotle spiced popcorn Regular salted popcorn Salted caramel popcorn
The “Maracas” all served on sticks
Chicken and lemon confit bonbons smoked paprika mayonnaise
Chorizo and basil arancini roasted garlic mayonnaise.
Mini mozzarella balls, sweet chilli and mint sauce.
Salmon and lime mousse coconut crumb Whipped Goats cheese, walnut crust beetroot caviar.
The food stands
Black bean chilli, guacamole, lime salsa and herby pancakes
Pulled pork tortillas, banana and coriander salsa, apple salsa, and flaming hot salsa.
Niks Nacho hut! Sour cream, guacamole, cheese, jalepenos, tomato salsa
Jerk Chicken and jambalaya rice and creamed corn & red pepper relish
Served family style. Churros in shot glasses with chocolate sauce Margarita Granita Passion fruit cheese cake we served this on dry ice Just because its fun!
For the evening The ultimate Chilli con carne served with crusty bread served in new york style tale away containers.
Well I think you’d agree that Mirlah and Nik definitely made a menu U and they tell me their guests haven’t stopeed talking about the food!
