Sarah and Robyn decided to tie the knot at the beautiful Pat Busch Mountain Reserve in Robertson. If you’re looking for a wedding venue nestled in nature, with dramatic scenery and loads of space for you and your friends to enjoy all weekend, then look no further, Pat Busch has it all and more.
The wedding menu was a real festive feast, and included a delectable harvest table with a cheese tower (the cumin boerenkaas is always a winner). Canapes were bold and varied, with mini lamb pitas topped with a fresh tzatziki and roasted chickpeas, tomato, mozzarella and artichoke bites drizzled with basil pesto, and the delightfully fresh parma ham, parmesan and wild rocket bruschettas.
The mains were done family style, which in our opinion is an ideal food service option for Pat Busch. The platter for the meats had spinach, walnut and ricotta stuffed chicken fillets, as well as fennel roasted pork belly slices. This was accompanied by a colourful array of salads and sides, our favourite being a crunchy green salad with figs, ricotta, pomegranate and peppery leaves.
The Flying Pan team are not just professional caterers and extremely helpful people, they are magicians! They managed to not only make an incredible meal that has people still talking about it a week later, but they managed to do it in the rain and without an official kitchen. I don’t know how they did it, but magicians never reveals their secret. And that’s just the magic on the day. Leading up to the wedding, Matt was unbelievably helpful. For a bride that had no idea what she was doing, he made the entire process so much easier (and truth be told, he saved my wedding) giving me endless tips on food, waiters, and even the style of dining. I followed his lead and frankly, I’m so glad I did. He knows what he is talking about and made the entire event run perfectly, food and service both. To The Flying Pan team, thank you all from the bottom of our hearts! You guys are rock!! – Sara & Robyn
