Right, so where was I? That’s right, we were all in a big red bus singing, ‘The Bear Necessities’ on our way to Palm2 hosting the pop up, Sabel, where delights of *great grub, belly-achingly-funny speeches and party-time were to follow.
Here are a few more memories of the day…
Whoever said girls aren’t funny obviously has lead a sheltered life and obviously hasn’t met Sarah, Lianna’s chief bridesmaid. It was one of those occasions where I had to remember I was there to take photos because I found my self being sucked into her stories. Proper comedy value. I think I almost keeled over at Lianna’s doppelgangers – Sue Pollard being a personal favourite.
And as the guests washed down some seriously mouth-watering, stick your face in the bowl, chocolate mousse and honey-comb, Sam and Olly hit back with another outrageously funny speech, reviving the ghosts of Toby’s past with some quality posters.
The many wonderful faces of Olly.
David Bowie’s ‘Let’s Dance’ rocking the house and getting the party started. I love the pic where everbody is singing along to it. Can you spot Lianna on vocals?
I can’t say this for sure, but I think there was an unspoken dance off happening between some of the guests. One of those imaginary trophies up for grabs that nobody talks about but everyone is fighting for. I’m sure there were plenty of worthy contestants who participated after I left the building but people in the runnings for me were: Sarah, her husband Ste, Lianna, Sam and Richard. But the winner is… **cue drum roll** …little Mikey who was not only a complete star helping me with the group shots and giving me a laugh on a several occasions but also, that kid has got some proper moves going on!
And last but not least, the gentleman Sam, helping a stranded photographer, calling me a cab and shouting the fare to the nearest train station. A massive thank you.
Lianna and Toby, thank you for letting me tag along and allowing me to be part of your most fantastic day, and I can’t wait to hear about your next pop up as the hubby and I will hopefully make it.
PS I almost forgot. It’s twins!! How amazing is that?! xxx
Just in case you were wanting to know a little more about Toby’s fabulous food, who they cater for and their pop up restaurants, here’s a little word from the man himself…
“We’re delighted that since our wedding we’ve started working with a wide range of local venue too us. Sabel are now one of the lucky few who can cater at venues such as Clissold House, The Asylum, Village Underground, Shoreditch Studio’s, St.John’s Church at Hackney and most recently, The Pavilion, in Hyde Park.
We recently helped Arthur and Caitlin with their wedding at Brixton East- a fantastic venue where we look forward to working at in the future. The couple had eaten at Sabel pop ups over the last few years. We wrote a bespoke feast menu for them with highlights of Seabass tartare’s, cured pork collar and Welsh Lamb shoulder slow cooked with mergeuz , preserved lemon and white beans – presented whole to the table for the guests to dig in too. There was also a whisky bar, craft beer and a fantastic cheese display kept them fuelled until the wee hours – it was a lot of fun.
We’re hoping to announce our next series of pop up’s to start in the next week or so – very exciting!
Sabel’s growing in many ways – some more exciting than others! We’re expecting- Twins!!!!!!!! Our little family Business just got a bit bigger…
