Richard Parker, his wife Lou and their group of friends spent the weekend at The Grange, Horsington to celebrate Lou’s birthday. And they certainly did celebrate…until 4 in the morning! After an afternoon lounging by the pool, playing football and cricket, they enjoyed our beautiful canapés with champagne as they played a quiz on the patio.
They were a lovely, talented group and we were even treated to the musical talents of a couple of the guests toward the end of the night. The bespoke birthday cake, designed by Richard himself, was presented to Lou who loved it! It was Victoria Sponge on the top, gooey chocolate cake on the bottom and covered in beautiful flowers and edible pearls.
