At The Pilgrims Rest we are always on the search for new and exciting suppliers to help our brides and grooms plan their day. Last week we met with the fabulous Esther, Sam and Becky, the creators and talent behind Boxed - a brilliant and novel way of catering for weddings.
Inspired by their Winchelsea Beach surrounding with its abundance of flora and food, Boxed creates an informal yet luxurious alternative to a wedding breakfast. Their decorated boxes provide both a beautiful centrepiece as well as delicious surprise for guests as they dive in to discover its contents.
“This part of East Sussex constantly inspires us. We are so lucky being surrounded by beautiful plants and trees plus incredible produce. It is so exciting being able to work with brides to create alternative styles and trends - the options are limitless. Each box is unique and bespoke to the couple.”
All three talented Boxed ladies add their own skill and creativity to each box:
Becky, a trained patisserie chef, has been baking her delicious creations for local people and businesses for many years. Becky’s skill is baking the most delicious, and beautiful new cakes to meet the brief. Always in high demand - everyone wants a slice of Becky!
Esther has been in the food industry as a high-end deli buyer, caterer, pie maker and charcutier. Highly knowledgeable with a little black book of carefully sourced suppliers, Esther’s favourite part of a wedding is carefully filling the decorated boxes just before the guests arrive.
Sam is completely at home with all things natural and wild. Sam’s bushcraft knowledge coupled with her skill as a garden designer and her understanding of plants and flowers is apparent on all her stunning boxes.
The Pilgrims Rest is a unique, historic wedding venue in the Heart of East Sussex. This 600 year old Wealden Hall house could not be a better venue for a Boxed wedding. With its wide trestle tables and rustic charm this is truly a match made in heaven!
