A royal feast is the only way to celebrate a royal wedding!

As Miss Meghan Markle walks down the aisle to marry His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales, we’ll be celebrating the joyous occasion. As you know, it’s not a real celebration without a spread of delicious food and drinks. To help with your planning, we’ve created a British Royal Wedding-worthy menu for your viewing party – with a Nova Scotia twist of course.

Walking Down the Aisle

As Meghan Markle walks down the aisle, indulge in this English treat. This Cranberry Orange Scone recipe (from Masstown Market) features delicious Nova Scotia cranberries. Serve your scone with tea – because this is an English celebration! We suggest Earl Grey Cream tea  from The Tea Brewery.

Exchanging Vows


We’re sure the wedding will be a smashing success. Celebrate a new beginning for Harry and Meghan with this refreshing Basil Smash.

The First Dance
