Wedding Sample Menu

Every wedding is different in terms of number of guests, staff needed, facilities and equipment available at your chosen venue, length of the event and your menu. As a rough guide on pricing, we charge between £30 and £60 a head for food. We do not charge corkage on wine. Below we have chosen 5 recent weddings with very different styles of menu and service, which you might find spark some ideas of what you would most enjoy.

“The food suited us perfectly, and was delicious. Your staff were polite, courteous, efficient and effective. Lots of people have commented on how tasty and delicious the food was- some people had never had anything like it and found it really refreshing. I think it was pleasingly unexpected food for a wedding.”

I highly recommend her and her staff. 5 stars!”
