H. Gunton is a family business established at 81 Crouch Street in 1936 by the late Herbert Gunton. Along with his son Geoffrey they built up a reputation for selling high quality and unusual foods with personal service and advice for their clientele. Over the years we have built up a hamper business that increases in popularity annually. In addition we stock a wide range of better quality foods which tend not to appear on supermarket shelves.
We now supply cheese wedding cakes from our range of over 100 farmhouse and artisan cheeses from the UK and Europe and if we don't stock your favourite cheese we will be able to source it for you.
There is a 10% discount for any cake with three or more tiers and we can courier your cheeses in chilled packaging to anywhere in the UK for a small charge or you can collect from our Colchester store.
If you live locally you are more than welcome to come in and sample the cheeses when designing your cake or, if you live further away, many of the cheeses can be purchased from our website in 100g portions and sent out to you to try.
Uniquely personalised and decorated for weddings, special events & occasions.
Our new range of cake boxes are designed especially for weddings, and can be personalised with the bride and grooms name and wedding date as a memorable favour for each guest or as a thankyou gift for members of the wedding party.
The boxes can be uniquely designed to match your wedding theme or choose from our wide selection of colours and patterns!
Fantaysia... The Ultimate Medieval Experience. If you are looking for a themed events organiser - then look no further. Let Fantaysia be your ''Time Lord'' and transport you and your guests to whatever era you so desire - the choice is totally yours.
Fantaysia knows how special your wedding day is to you. We also understand that the bride and groom need to enjoy the day as much as the guests invited with as little stress as possible. This is where we excel. We ensure that you have no worries about your day and we organise it all for you the way you dreamed it to be.
Many couples are having a themed wedding to celebrate their special day incorporating any ideas they may have. A themed wedding is more popular now as traditional weddings give way to something a little different. Fantaysia themed weddings are more visual and more of what the wishes of the bride and groom wish to have for their day.
When you decide to have a themed wedding you will either be considering a fully themed wedding or a partial themed wedding.
What is the difference?
Fully Themed Wedding The difference of a fully themed wedding is the theme is carried totally through out the day from start to finish and all guests dress to the theme, all food and entertainment, theming to compliment.
Partial Themed Wedding A partial themed wedding is where the guests have optional dress, everything they are part of is themed to what ever extent the couple wish.
