Church Estates Malibu

Mid year I was part of a small group of co-ordinators to be invited by the caterer extra-ordinaire Room Forty for a very special showcase and food experience at the Church Estates in Malibu.

This is the location that Fergie and Josh got married at, and also Nisie Nash (think I have that right) from HGTV (I think).

I always enjoy the drive from Santa Monica along the coast through Malibu, some great restaurants with wave crashing on rocks views, and some lovely intimate style hotels to stay at also.  We arrived at the property and we were escorted to a lovely area where we could exchange inappropriate walking shoes for flip flops, saw the lovely lake area and woodsy area beyond with a wee creek running through, and then made our way up to the lawn in front of the home where the ceremonies are normally held.  The home is beautiful and there is some access to certain areas/rooms for your guests and for getting changed etc.  Out the front door is a lovely fountain area and the guest house where the bride normally gets ready and the couple spend the night prior and the wedding night, very lovely and private.  There is a lovely bridge high above a babbling brook and this is where a beautiful dining table was set up for the 16 of us.  Just like a magazine picture, the setting and sounds around us were just serene/beautiful, then you add great food and wine/champagne, and what a wonderful ‘all senses’ experience.  The food was excellent and the service matched.  After lunch when we really just wanted to lie in the sun and nap, we walked up to the winery (yes there are vines and they have their own wine) where you can get married also, or have cocktails amongst the vines. 

The scenery and feeling this property excudes is very very special.

Let me know if you have an interest in your wedding here or with this caterer, I can help.

Till next time
