One of the best things about owning a mobile wedding crepes business is that you get to travel to all kinds of places you wouldn’t ordinarily go. Some places, we’d never heard of. Others we end up wishing we’d never heard of. But at the end of the day, if you don’t go, then you never know.
Another aaspect of owning a wedding catering website is that you can sometimes receive an unusual enquiry. Yesterday, we had an email asking if we could serve crepes at a wedding in Perth. But not the one in Scotland.
We have attended a wedding Perthshire, but the enquiry was regarding a wedding in the southern hemisphere.
Unfortunately, we had to decline.
We did give it serious consideration. We considered the logistics but decided it would probably be unrealistic to provide a quote, even though it something we would have loved to have done.
For a start, we couldn’t have taken the mobile crepe station in our van. It would have to have been loaded onto a plane. And there would be no prospect of smuggling the machinery in our suitcases with a few tools in the hand-luggage either. It would have been a case of full-on air freight cargo, which we are sure would have been very expensive.
Another issue would have been that it would have taken at least a week from our diary. It’s about a day on a plane each way, plus jet-lag recovery time, plus a bit of beach/bar time thrown in for good measure. A week (or so) down under would be fine by us, but it would mean that we’d be unable to hire our mobile crepe stand out for weddings for a while. And even if we went in their summer (our winter) it would be excruciatingly hot for making crepes.
So on this occasion, we had to decline and let the bride know that we appeciated her enquiry, but on this occasion, we wouldn’t be able to attend her wedding.
At this point in time, the only Perth weddings at which we can serve crepes is in Scotland.
