My Friend’s Wedding @ Newport Mirage, Northern Beaches, Sydney

Date of Wedding:  September 16 2015

A good friend of mine got married today.  The lucky couple chose Newport Mirage to hold their wedding ceremony and lunch.  It was a glorious spring day with the sun shining brightly. The ceremony itself was moving and romantic.  The couple met 2 years ago; yet with age differences and many, many kms apart, they managed to continue developing their relationship to literally ‘sealing the deal’ today! 💞💞

We had a 3-course set menu with 2 options – straight-forward and fed us well. Here they are!


My choice was the Smoked Salmon Roulade with very briny capers.


Smoked Salmon Roulade: Tomato, Baby caper and Herb Salad, Horseradish sauce



Confit Port Belly: Caramelised orange and Cardamon Reduction Fennel Salad


I had the Herb crusted Beef Sirloin with a hard-as-cardboard polenta, otherwise the beef was good.


Herb crusted Beef Sirloin: Crispy Polenta, Wilted Spinach, Roasted Tomato, Shiraz Jus



Oven Roasted Chicken Breast:  Colcannon, Asparagus, Mushroom Sauce

Vegetarian Option


Grilled Capsicums, Eggplants, Zucchinis, Asparagus


I shared both desserts with another friend of mine.  I preferred the Cherry Clafoutis because it is lighter and had a crispy shell.😋


Cherry Clafoutis Tart: Grand Marnier Reduction, Mascarpone Cream



Sticky Date Pudding:  Butterscotch Sauce, Date Compote, Vanilla Bean Ice-cream

After some congratulatory speeches and dance, we were served the wedding cake as our final dessert.


The cut-up 2-tier Weddding Cake: Orange poppy seed, chocolate fudge, lots of cream and thick fondant

As part of custom, all the single ladies were invited to catch the wedding bouquet.  I caught it together with another girl, but decided to let her have it instead. 😇  (I figured, she has better luck!😜)

Surprise, surprise..The surprising ‘hero’ of the day was the humble piping hot bread roll! 😅
