Food, glorious food

Food, glorious food

Q. We're massive foodies and would love to lay on a wedding spread for our guests to remember but we're worried about the price. How can we keep costs down without sacrificing on quantity or quality?

A. Natalie Creegan says: Nowadays you don't have to have a big budget as there are many alternatives to the traditional wedding breakfast. With festival-style weddings becoming evermore popular, the type and style of food you offer can be very cost-effective. Our wood-fired pizza ovens, coupled with paella pans, work really well for a relaxed vibe. Other popular choices include Mexican and Indian dishes. These can be set up as separate stations so guests are free to eat while they mix and mingle. They're also ideal for the evening do and are budget-friendly too.

Barbecue food is another great option and can be served to the tables on platters or set up buffet-style. We include a simple starter and our delicious double chocolate brownie tower dessert is to die for.

Grazing boards are slightly more formal but still very interactive and relaxed. We use long wooden boards for serving, which look stunning and we can provide endless options, catering for all tastes including veggie and vegan guests.
