Sunday 18th March chocolate fountains made the journey to Newcastle. Over 400 guests came together to join in the wedding celebrations of Fariha and Shahid. The venue was held at the Lancastrian Suite.
Our chocolate fountain was filled to full capacity with the finest fountain ready Belgian milk chocolate. We created a stunning display using our illuminated base unit and placed the dips chosen by Fariha for her wedding chocolate fountain hire in white crockery. Dips that were chosen included fresh fruits (strawberries, cherries, banana, grapes, pineapple), cakes and biscuits (shortbread, cookies, brownies, profiteroles).
From 5pm the guests arrived and joined us to sample the delights of the fountain. Music welcomed all of the guests as they arrived into the stunning reception room, which had been beautifully decorated in cream and ivory tones.
Fariha and her husband arrived at 6.30pm dressed in their stunning wedding outfits. The celebrations continued in the main reception room, starting with a prayer. Guests then enjoyed a 3 course meal and then joined us later for a second course of chocolate.
We had a great evening and we left the venue at 9pm after a wonderful evening.
Fariha sent a message the following day “thanking us for attending and that everyone enjoyed it”.

On Saturday 17th March, chocolate fountains had the pleasure of being hired for the evening reception of newlyweds Lyndsey and Paul. The venue chosen was the stunning Wild Boar Hotel in Beeston Cheshire. The hotel manager Gary welcomed us and both he and his team were on hand all evening to support us if needed. Thanks team.
The wedding breakfast and evening reception were being held in a stunning marquee. The guests had just finished their 3 course meal before we entered the marquee ready to start setting up. As we entered, the guests were being entertained with a very talented live singer. She was getting everyone in the party mood.
We began to set up the 44″ chocolate fountain and started to melt fountain ready Belgian milk chocolate into the basin. The guests were in for a treat as Lyndsey had chosen dips including fresh strawberries, banana, pineapple, mini doughnuts, cookies, profiteroles and marshmallows for her chocolate fountain hire.
As the guests joined us to sample the delights of the chocolate fountain, guests were entertained further by a magician and sample the delights of a candy buffet. We received many compliments for our chocolate fountain hire and everyone appeared to enjoy it.

Planning a wedding day has to be one of the most important events for any couple. It will also be one of the most indulgent. Many couples will spend months planning every individual detail for their special day. Every detail from the venue, photographer, food and drink is chosen with the utmost importance. A popular addition for a wedding reception currently is a chocolate fountain hire often set up to run alongside the evening buffet.
A chocolate fountain consists of a set of stainless steel plate like tiers that are bigger at the bottom than toward the top. Each tier is placed carefully over the centre post and within this post there is an Archimedes screw. The chocolate is melted slowly in the base at the bottom of the fountain and once fully melted, the motor is switched on. At this point the centre screw quickly spins around and this motion draws the chocolate upwards. As the chocolate reaches the top of the fountain known as the crown, it then gracefully flows downwards over each tier. The melted chocolate then collects in the bowl at the bottom and repeats the process flowing upward through the fountain again and again.
We can offer a fabulous display consisting of a 44″ Sephra chocolate fountain along with with an illuminated base unit, which can be set to one of 6 colour options. The display will be the perfect centre piece for everyone to enjoy. The flowing chocolate not only creates a visual centre piece but also perfumes the surrounding area with a fresh cocoa scent.
At chocolate fountains we will arrive at your chosen
venue an hour or so before the chocolate is required to start flowing. A member of our friendly team will set up the fountain and its display as discussed. The uniformed and fully trained member of staff will operate the 44″ Sephra chocolate fountain
for the duration of the hire period and ensure that the chocolate and chosen dips are topped up when required. They will ensure that the serving area is kept tidy at all times, with the aim that the display looks as good towards the end of the hire as it did at the beginning. When the hire period has ended they will discreetly dismantle all of the equipment and leave the area tidy.
We offer a full service hire which includes a range of fresh dips to accompany the chocolate fountain. The dip items are what guests can skewer and then dip into the chocolate before eating. Our dip choices include fresh fruits, marshmallows, sweets and biscuits. The prefect items are those that will not crumble when dipped into the chocolate.
We use fountain ready Belgian chocolate in our fountain, which is available in dark, milk or white. The term fountain ready means that nothing is added to it to make it easier to flow. Other cheaper chocolate brands require a large quantity of oil to be added into the chocolate to thin it out and help it flow. The finest chocolate that is available is Belgian and made by Callebaut. The fountain ready chocolates have soya included in their recipes to act as the emulsifier and because of this, it is suitable for vegetarians. Most guests at the wedding reception will be able to enjoy the delights of the chocolate fountain and all of its treats.
It is advisable to use the chocolate fountain indoors. If it preferred to use the fountain outdoors, it is important to set it up in an area where there is some shelter available to protect the fountain unit against the elements. When it is cold outside, it is important to know that this will affect the temperature of the chocolate and prevent it from flowing properly. Our advice is to avoid the outdoors on cold days. On very hot days, we would also avoid the outdoors, as the smell of chocolate and fresh fruits can attract unwanted bugs and pests.
