Jen and Hamish treated their guests to a s’mores bar during their drinks reception at The Millhouse on the banks of the Boyne in Slane. The couple live in Hamish’s native Australia but Jen is from Ireland with so many of their guests making the long journey over. The Millhouse is a wonderfully sumptuous venue yet still very comfortable and homely. With the wedding being the day before New Years Eve, there was still a sense of Christmas coziness along with an open fire throughout the ground floor. While the ceremony was taking place in the old millhouse, I set up the S’mores Bar in the entrance hall of the main house.
When all the I do’s were said the guests made their way over to the house to select from a marshmallow choice of Peanut Butter & Dark Chocolate, Oreo, Malteser, Coffee & Jameson, Raspberry and Passion Fruit & Coconut. Knowing that there would be children at the reception I had brought simple chocolate biscuits as well as making a cookie that is a mix of a traditional cookie recipe and Graham’s crackers, which is the traditional American choice to have with s’mores. I also brought some gluten and dairy free biscuits. The s’mores proved very popular and I was still toasting when they were ready to go into dinner. The guests were a really friendly bunch and no doubt everyone had a great night.
Massive congrats to Jen and Hamish who were a dream to work with as well as the cracking staff at The Millhouse.
