Pierre Cardin villa.) The History: The History Zoë’s wedding in UpWaltham. Ravenous can also create the wedding of your dreams. 200 guests were served a champagne canape reception followed by a five course Thai banquet. Set in a beautiful Tithe barn, Ravenous transformed this venue into an exotic Thai setting. Guests were left wondering whether they were at the wedding breakfast or on their honeymoon with the favoured couple. The event flowed, the speeches went off whilst Ravenous delivered tantalising Thai cuisine that made this wedding memorable. We like to think we took the stress from Zoë and gave her a day to remember. Zoë is now happily married.
