Shreddies, you do what...?

Whenever I'm asked what I do for a living it's always a great conversation starter. 

I recently attended a wedding and the inevitable question popped up during day and I had to explain what Shreddies do several times.

A wedding always brings people together from a wide range of professions from Royal Marines, to Detectives to people selling livestock feed, but my job always seems to generate the most interest and questions. 

I'd be a rich man if I had a pound for every time I had to answer - 

  • Do they really work?

  • How do they work?

  • Who came up with the idea?

  • Who tests them?

I love watching people's faces during these questions as they're genuinely intrigued and then later on you'll see them having a sneaky Google to see if it's a wind up. 

It's such a great way of breaking the ice at a wedding where I didn't know most of the guests. The wedding was amazing and was the first one I'd attended in a tipi, basked in beautiful sunshine, with a plentiful supply of gin and fun and games - Bawden Lodge Farm was the perfect setting. 

I couldn't recommend the location enough, the staff were all amazing. Even if you're not lucky enough to attend a wedding at Bawden Lodge it's well worth a visit. They run different events such as their Artisan Food Fayre in September. Tickets found here

One of my personal highlights for the day was winning The Great Wedding Bake Off with my entry of Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies (recipe to follow in a later blog!).
