Weddings at Coworth Park, Ascot & Wrest Hall, Silsoe

For Jaimini & Ravi’s wedding in the grounds of Wrest Hall, Silsoe, the weather was somewhat breezy and overcast; but having our ice cream tricycles set up inside the impressive orangery following their ceremony, their close to 200 wedding guests soon forgot about the gloomy clouds outside as they enjoyed such exotic ice cream flavours as Ferrero Rocher, Mango & Passion Fruit and Coconut.

Ice Dreams also came true for Sumit & Sonia’s wedding reception at Coworth Park, Ascot. We were tipped off  by the groom that the bride’s grandfather – Badgis, once owned an Ice Cream Truck. Sumit wanted to surprise Sonia with a fitting tribute to Badgis at their wedding by having his name on the ice cream menu board which we duly arranged. ‘Operation Scoop’ then went ahead and we set up our tricycles discreetly out of view and following the speeches the lovely surprise was sprung, much to the delight of the bride. – Job Done!

Company Car In Action Sees Ice Dream Support Suzuki

   Following the success of our Corporate Ice Cream Service last year in  supporting Suzuki at Silverstone and Millbrook we made another return visit this year to the iconic Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire as Suzuki exhibited their range of fleet cars at Company Car In Action – a flagship event in the fleet world calendar.  We were not blessed with great weather this year but we were still able to maintain a high footfall to the Suzuki exhibition stand with our popular branded trike and branded ice creams over the two day event.

Great Review From Great Rail Journeys Product Launch

‘What a fantastic day we’ve had at Great Rail Journeys! The Ice Dream Team were wonderful, bringing ice cream heaven to 150 employees at our head office in York! From the branding support to the ice cream flavours – the whole experience was not only delicious, but so much fun! We absolutely loved it, Neil & Tracey were so polite, tidy, patient and enthusiastic – would recommend to anyone! Thank you so much, you’ve helped us celebrate a new product launch perfectly!’   Frances Geale Brand Manager – Great Rail Journeys

Our cameras unfortunately were not permitted with our back-stage passes, but hey! – we came, we saw, we scooped! and we can’t wait to watch series 13 scheduled to be broadcast on ITV in early April.

New Year, New Borough, New Website & Blog

Happy New Year Everyone! 

The Ice Dream Experience relocated last year a little closer to Manchester and set our new Dream HQ in Rossendale. This naturally meant that we had to be reassessed for our food hygiene by our new Borough Council and we are proud to report that we have maintained our Food Standard Agency 5 Rating, the highest rating that can be given under the national scheme.  

We also took some time out this month to update our website which if you are reading this, then you’ll be seeing the revised site which includes this new Blog and also 3 products & services pages: Seasonal EventsThemed Parties and Vintage China & Props Hire.  Please take a look as all pages now contain some new and exciting Experiences and also some unique party props for hire.
