what is a

your first sit down meal

The wedding breakfast is the name given to your first sit down dinner as newlyweds, enjoyed along with your guests on your wedding day.

The name is known to be confusing as the wedding breakfast is not usually in the morning nor does it look like a typical breakfast.

The name is claimed to have arisen from the fact that in pre-Reformation times, the wedding service was usually a Eucharistic Mass and that the newlyweds would therefore have been fasting before the wedding in order to be eligible to receive the sacrament of Holy Communion.

Our fabulous caterers Jenkinson’s will ensure your wedding breakfast here at Dodford Manor is one your guests will enjoy and remember forever.
