The Wedding of Jane and Max

Second wedding of the year, and it was a hot one- read about the wedding of Jane and Max…

In May, we provided our dry bar hire and staffing service for this beautiful Couple.

Bar Virgins!

We’ve provided our bar services for many Weddings and Events. This one, however, we were at a brand new wedding venue in Shrewsbury. For Moat Hall Barns, Jane and Max’s special day was to be the first wedding hosted at the Venue – No pressure there, then!

Arrival Drinks

Already legally married, Jane and Max had a close friend conduct their Ceremony. Because there are no rules to follow with this kind of Ceremony, as requested by Jane and Max, we were able to prepare pre-wedding drinks for their Guests.

Aperol Spritz, prosecco, and bottled beers were prepared, almost to order so that the Guests could enjoy a chilled drink in the heat.

Arrival Wedding Drinks

Rather than us serving directly to the Guests, Jane and Max had some shelves to display the glasses on, while the bottles of beer were kept cool in ice within a wooden box they had also got. While greeting their Guests as they arrived, they could help themselves to a drink of their choice.

Post Ceremony Drinks

Once the Ceremony had finished, the team served Guests more Aperol Spritz, prosecco, and bottled beers.

Staying Hydrated…

Hot sunshine plus free bar don’t mix too well for some people.

We made sure that plenty of water stations were available, which we kept topped up and chilled with ice.

Not just bar staff

As well as staffing the free bar, serving the drinks reception, putting wine on tables for the wedding breakfast, and preparing prosecco for the speeches, we had also agreed that we would help with the food service.

The Caterer Jane and Max had chosen were predominantly street food caterers, but Jane and Max wanted their Guests to be served at their tables. Cue The Iron Bar, who were happy to oblige.

Partying on into the night with an Irish Twist

Once the formalities of the wedding breakfast were over, the rest of the free bar kicked in. We served the Guests the drinks that Jane and Max had provided themselves.

Jane’s family is from Ireland, so she wanted to add a touch of the Irish to the wedding…

Signature wedding drinks

Baby Guinness Trolley

Jane and Max had created their trolley. The bar planned to make up batches of Baby Guinness and push the trolley around the Guests.

Our very own Dave and Tim were great trolley dollies!

Moat House Barn is a fantastic wedding venue. The day was perfect, and Jane and Max had an amazing day.
