Elizabeth Hurley is to serve a banquet inspired by English royalty at her wedding with Arun Nayar. The British actress-and-model, who is marrying Arun next month, has reportedly asked chefs at Gloucestershire's Sudeley Castle to prepare a meal inspired by cuisine served to King Henry VIII's sixth wife, Katherine Parr, when she lived there. Guests will be treated to roasted guinea fowl with sage and champagne jus, followed by summer fruit brulée or pears poached in wine for desert all washed down with Verve Cliquot Champagne. A source said: "It's a very medieval menu, in keeping with the castle. Liz wants the food to match the history of the venue so there will be nothing modern on the menu." Katherine, whose tomb is located in the castle church, regularly dined on deer that roamed wild on the estate.
Liz, 41, and Indian businessman Arun's extended wedding celebrations start with an English ceremony at Sudeley Castle, followed by a traditional Indian wedding in Mumbai, which will feature an Indian banquet.Celebrities expected to attend the nuptials include Liz's close friend Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish, fashion designer Donatella Versace and Victoria Beckham.
