Sydney Trip Day 2 - 20.09.09

That's was the day of wedding! After the beautiful ceremony we headed to Waters Edge (11 Hickson Road) where the reception took place. It was a definately a beautiful place with a breathtaking view of the Harbour Bridge and of course, of the whole Sydney Harbour. The tables were beautifully set up with rose petals of the shade of pale yellow and each guest got a jar of honey from Beechworth Honey - i got the Orange Blossom flavoured one. I haven't tried it yet, but it says that it is light and clear in colour, floral aroma and a distinctive taste with an unique and citrus after taste.
The reception started with canapes being served and then a 3-course meal served alternately followed by coffee, tea and chocolates. The food was nice and my favorites were the Smoked Salmon entree and the Chocolate Mousse.

Entree 1: Tasmanian smoked salmon tian, tomato and avocado, crème fraiche, fennel gribiche and lemon oil

Entree 2: Spicy tomato risotto topped with prawns sautéed in garlic and olive oil

Main 1: Fillet of cod, tomato fondue, mushroom duxelles, soft herb crust, sabayon of grain mustard

Main 2: Roasted breast of chicken carbonara with crisp pancetta wafer and Parmesan cream

Dessert 1: Old time favourite bitter chocolate mousse, citrus fruit

Dessert 2: White chocolate mousse in a dark chocolate tear drop w raspberry puree and Grand Marnier syrup

Of course the wedding wouldn't be complete without the wedding cake! It was a simple single-tier cake but elegantly decorated with pale yellow, white and cream roses to match the wedding theme. Loved it~
