Gabrielle & Roscoe’s City Wedding

Our first wedding of the season, Gabrielle and Roscoe tied the knot at The Centre for the Book in the city centre and wow – what a venue! Situated in Queen Victoria street near Company’s Gardens, this national monument in nothing short of elegant and grand with its Edwardian style of architecture and historic relevance. The main hall is a round gallery with a domed top that is storeys high, with original wooden panelling on the walls, and cabinets that house hundreds of old books (being the National Library of South Africa).

We loved the menu for this wedding, as it lended itself to the venue and environment. For after the ceremony, guests each received a snack pack for a relaxed, picnic style meander in Company’s Gardens. For starters at the venue, guests enjoyed a seared beef fillet carpaccio, with rocket, gruyere, crispy potato croutons and a balsamic glaze. Mains was banquet style with walnut, spinach and feta stuffed chicken, and thyme and lemon basted lamb kebabs. These were accompanied by four delicious salads with the like of harissa roasted aubergine and couscous salad and a fresh summer grape, walnut, shredded cabbage, kale and cranberry salad.
