Hog Roast Newburgh Attended A Traditional Scottish Wedding

Thanks to the gorgeous sunshine and soaring temperatures that we’ve been experiencing lately, Hog Roast Newburgh has seen a growing demand from our customers and clients when it comes to alfresco-style dining. And the most recent outdoor event we handled was for the wedding of Jamie-Lee and Robin, who had been looking forward to their big day for over two years!

Due to the pandemic, the bride and groom had been forced to delay their nuptials several times, but it all worked out for the best, in the end, as the weather last weekend couldn’t have been more perfect for taking wedding photos. Not only that, but over the last couple of years, the family had welcomed some new additions, who were able to be present for the celebrations.

The couple’s wedding took place on the grounds of an elegant stately home on Saturday afternoon, which boasted sprawling lawns, beautiful fauna and immaculate greenery. It was ideal for the traditional Scottish wedding that the pair had their heart set on, and Hog Roast Newburgh ¬†was all too happy to help out by serving a bountiful banquet of expertly-cooked hog roast meat, garden-fresh salad options and seasonal veg, followed by a wedding cake service.

In preparation for the event, which saw 165 people of all ages gather, Hog Roast Newburgh had spent the entire morning working on the feast. Using our HogMaster, catering manager, Steve, took the lead by immersing the full-size pig in sage and onion stuffing before leaving it to slow-cook until the guests arrived.

Hog Roast Newburgh As the hours ticked by, the pig took on a striking golden appearance, which was crisp and bubbled, making the perfect crackling. The irresistible aromas filled the air, and as the meat neared completion, Hog Roast Newburgh’s caterers quickly chopped some fresh vegetables and halloumi to make grilled vegetable and halloumi skewers for veggie/vegan guests, as well as homemade hot dogs for the children.

The guests instantly fell in love with the spread, which was served to them on real China crockery with proper silverware. Each table also benefited from a delicious antipasti platter of smoked salmon, Scottish cheeses, Scotch eggs and artisan bread.
