Engagement party perfection

The big engagement party has been and gone, and I had the hangover to prove it. Gosh, was I sick! But it was worth it - all the research, all the preparation, all the indulgence . . . all to celebrate the wonderful engagement of Pete and Michelle. Congrats you two! Can't wait for the big day xo

This is where my pathetic attempt at food photography falls flat on its face. I tried to capture the tiny perfection of our bite sized bundles, but the pics above just don't do it justice! First, we've got the classic smoked salmon blini, then goats cheese and caramelised onion tarts, then pumpernickel with camembert, caramelised onion and pistacchio, then roast lamb tartlets with sage and tzatziki, then smoked chicken, apple, wholegrain mustard, spring onion and mayo on wonton and dainty little pavs with fresh kiwi and cream. Heartbroken I didn't get a pic of my crowd pleasing tandoori curry cups - they were a hit! Oh, and the gorgeous little lemon tarts.

In my opinion, it is a shame that each of the piklets were not exactly the same size. In my opinion, good finger food is all about symetry, colour and flavour. In my opinion, a little more diversity in colour may have overcome the lack of symetry. Perhaps something to work on for the wedding?
