Elegant, sophisticated and magical, a country garden themed wedding is a wonderfully British way to celebrate your marriage, surrounded by family and friends on what we hope will be a sunny summers day! Here are three quintessential country garden caterers to make your wedding that extra little bit special…
Beautifully composed dishes and bright, crunchy salad boxes made using the freshest of natural ingredients, absolutely packed with nutrients. Savage Salads make wholesome and seasonal food using the very best produce on offer… it’s as if they were hand picked for a country garden wedding. They can easily cater for vegetarian and vegans, as well as having a number of gluten free choices. Butternut squash, red rice, lentils, couscous, sundried tomatoes, sultanas and toasted almonds are just some of the nourishing ingredients on offer, topped with freshly grilled halloumi, Angus steak or chicken breast.
Refreshing and flavoursome, Lickalix offer healthy homemade whole fruit ice lollies, a wonderful touch to a traditional countryside wedding celebration. Not only have Lickalix appeared on This Morning, Jamie Oliver is also a massive fan of their fantastic flavours. Here at Feast It, we love the seriously fruity Mango Raspberry Swirl! For those who like their lollies with a little something extra, these guys also sell alcoholic poptails, which include Strawberry Mojito, Pina Colada and Kahlua Kick.
This gorgeous little mobile bar absolutely epitomises a country garden wedding. La Belle Vie Artisan is a baby blue vintage Citroen HY that predominantly serves prosecco, as well as delicious cocktails and premium spirits. Covered with bunting, and sweetly lit with hanging light bulbs, this bar is guaranteed to go down a treat at your wedding celebrations and will look really beautiful in a quaint garden setting.
If you have a fondness for the charm and finesse of the 40s and 50s then having a vintage wedding could be the perfect way to spend your day… think swing bands and gin and tonics drunk from cut glass tumblers. Here are three totally elegant caterers to give your celebration a trendy timeless touch…
The perfect choice for a English vintage wedding, The Wandering Kitchen specialise in hearty yet sophisticated homemade game burgers, all made using locally sourced ingredients from inside their striking wooden food truck. Wood pigeon, wild boar and venison all feature on their menu, as well as a halloumi burger crammed with sumptuous sundried tomatoes and roasted veggies. For Feast It the star of the show is the venison burger… rich succulent meat topped with a caramelised onion chutney and crumble stilton or cheddar between a soft rustic bread roll.
The Artisan Strawberry Van look as if they’ve come straight from the 50s with their beautiful purply chrome van and big pink neon lettering, ideal for a vintage wedding. Refresh your guests with strawberries covered in sweet toppings such as honeycomb and melted Belgian chocolate, cocktails made from strawberries, like their Strawberry Gin Smash, fruity smoothies made using coconut and almond milk, and of course, classic Eton Mess. Everything is made using strawberries bought fresh everyday from the Western International Market in London. Impress your guests with this elegant yet fun food truck, ideal for a summer wedding.
These two converted VW campers are a magnificent choice for a vintage wedding bar. In Fine Spirits have one green and one turquoise camper van, which are understated, cool and most importantly, serve exceptional drinks. With a penchant for gin and over 20 premium options, they also serve numerous spirits, wines and champagne, and they make a mean margarita, porn star martini and espresso martini. Ask In Fine Spirits to bring their traditional wooden deck chairs to your event so guests can luxuriate in front of the vans with a premium gin and tonic in hand.
Everyone knows that delicious, reviving food is a festival highlight, and it doesn’t get much better than sitting in the sun with friends tucking into a stone baked pizza and sipping on an appley cider. So if you’re taking the plunge and are throwing a festival themed wedding, don your flower crown and take a look at our three fantastic suggestions for the perfect caterers…
Meaty British produce with authentic flavours from Argentina, Up In My Grill are totally passionate about steak and fire, and have put the two together to create marvellous steak plates and burgers. Henry and James have an ethos for dishes made from fantastic quality ingredients, simply cooked simplistically with great heart and spirit. All their beef comes from a farm in Yorkshire and is grilled over wood and charcoal. Our favourite is their classic Bavette Steak Plate with seriously melt in your mouth steak, home cooked fries and a tangy homemade chimichurri sauce. They also have a range of grilled vegetable options, canapés and salads. Up In My Grill are absolutely perfect for a festival wedding and they can’t help but put a smile on everyone’s face.
Want personalised ice cream made right in front of your eyes from the fastest growing ice cream brand in the UK? Look no further than Pan-n-Ice, who you can book right here on Feast It! As well as a number of spectacular weddings around Europe, these guys have also had pop up stalls in Selfridges, Westfield, and even New York! Their ice cream rolls are created in a variety of flavours on a giant frozen metal plate, as they mix fresh cream with strawberries, oreos, banana, caramel sauce and many more scrumptious ingredients. As well as personalised ice cream cups and even fully customisable ice cream carts, Pan-n-Ice can design bespoke menus for your wedding, so you can pick the flavours you love, (our favourite is the delicious Kinder Bueno and Ferrero Rocher).
What better way to get people dancing barefoot in the sun than with a little rum? This 22ft 1961 Tradewind Airstream will look absolutely dazzling on the grass at your festival wedding, a truly memorable and stunning bar! The Rum Runner serve a range of classic cocktails as well their own creations, and can also tailor make a bespoke cocktail menu to suit you.
