We had the wonderful privilege to work with the families of both the bride and groom. The journey and collaboration leading to the wedding was filled with laughter and joy. At times I felt transported into one of Woody Allen’s movies; the intricacy of a large Jewish family gathering with all characters in place.
The theme for the day was “White Moroccan wedding”. Serena was stunning in her Oscar del Renta gold wedding dress and gold Jimmy Choo shoes and Rotem looked like he stepped out of a magazine, elegant and sleek.
Opentable had planned and catered for the weekend event (the wedding and a day after gathering lunch for 100 guests) with lush exotic sumptuous Moorish food, guests were transported into the colourful culinary maze like the markets of the Medina. Tableware was brought directly from Morocco.
It was important for both family to incorporate dishes reflecting their Moroccan and Indian heritage.
Not only did they include all their own favourites, like the Salmon Tarator and Milk Pudding with Labne, Apricot and Persian Fairy Floss, but took great care to make sure the kosher members were catered for just as well as the rest of the guests.
What a magical celebration! We cannot thank you and your beautiful team enough. We absolutely loved planning the wedding with you. The entire weekend was perfect!! Thank you for inviting us into your home to taste your amazing cooking and meet your gorgeous family. We love your food and can’t get enough! We continued to eat the leftovers on Monday night and even the labne on Tuesday for breakfast! It’s obvious your team loves you as much as we do. They were so attentive and wonderful on the night and throughout. No details was forgotten- from the petal runway to the chuppah, the presentation of the food, the lighting and menus, to finding us a spectacular venue at the eleventh hour- you were a star!! We have received countless texts, emails and phone calls letting us know what an unbelievable event it was. Many of our friends and our parents’ friends, who have been to so many weddings, said it was the best one they had ever been to. Words cannot describe the energy in Newrybar that day- it was incredible!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the best day of our lives.
Love Serena & Rotem (24th Nov 13)”
