Actually, while I am not a cook, I suspect that if this is the idea
going into planning the event, the cooks can accommodate a different
schedule. May mean more pre-cooking or a different take on what is
actually served...I know some cooks who would see it as a fun challenge!
I think some cooks may actually like the idea - get all of the cooking
done before 1pm, clean up done before 3 or 4, they aren't there until
midnight trying to get the last dishes washed and the floor mopped!

Greetings from Myfanwy!
It would, but it would absolutely kill the cooks, I suspect.
Additionally, these days, most people expect their main (large) meal in
the evening (rather than what would be, effectively, lunchtime). So
not only are you asking the cooks to get the meal on the table 4 to 5
hours sooner than they're used to being able to plan for, time and
cooking-wise, but people will probably not eat it (making for lots of
waste, if the cooks manage to pull off a decent feast, and lots of
complaints about skimpy portions -- even if half of it goes back to the
kitchen untouched -- if they don't, or only do a one-remove feast).
Sounds like a lose-lose situation all around.
