Winter can be one of the most truly magical times of year to get married, with crisp sunny mornings, sparkling frost on the ground, roaring log fires, benches covered with comfy blankets and wild winter flowers. Booking a street food caterer to take care of the food, or a mobile bar to provide your guests with drinks all night long, can put a trendy twist on your special day. Feast It have come up with three fantastic winter wedding themes and matched each one with a splendid savoury option, a sweet treat and a delicious drinks trader. Enjoy!
Cosy Chalet Wedding
Think mulled wine, warm lighting, lots of wood, blanket stations and ski shots later on in the night, a cosy chalet wedding is the perfect choice for a bride and groom for whom the mountains are always calling. Snuggly alpine life in the depths of winter is infinitely romantic so what better way to spend your special day?
Main Course by Le Rac Shack
Absolutely perfect for an Alpine style wedding, Le Rac Shack are Raclette grilling pros that love to turn up at your wedding with multiple wheels of cheese… what more could you ask for? Once their delectable cheese is hot and bubbling they sweep the meltings onto plates of crushed herby potatoes, French cornichons, Toulouse sausage and other traditional mountain treats. All of the ingredients they use are premium and their Raclette comes from beautiful Annecy, right near Lake Geneva. Book Le Rac Shack today to make the perfect addition to your cosy winter celebration.
Sweet Treats by Jacques et Lilie
A charming bakery making beautiful little cakes, madeleines, pastries and more, Jacques et Lilie is run by Paul and Amandine who come from a long line of bakers in the South of France. They bake French recipes from their childhood, often putting a spin on them with citrus, coconut and other delicious flavours, not to mention their stunning presentation that is so wonderfully suited to a wedding. Our favourite is The Coeur Coco, a divine heart-shaped coconut cake with an oozing chocolate ganache centre. If these sound like the perfect quaint sweet treats for your wedding, then book Jacques et Lilie before they get snapped up!
Drinks by Bermondsey Tonic Water
What better drinks to serve at a cosy chalet winter wedding than exquisitely flavoured craft gin and tonics and mesmerising cocktails? Bermondsey Tonic Water have a brilliant reclaimed wooden pop up bar that beautifully suits this style of wedding and they will jump at the opportunity to create a bespoke menu just for your special day. Their excellent G&Ts are made using their own artisan tonic and they also have a range enticing cocktails, like The Jewel In The Crown, made with Aperol, gin, BTW tonic syrup, and refreshing pink grapefruit juice.

Winter Woodland Wedding
This whimsical winter theme requires plenty of intimate candlelight, gorgeous winter flowers like striking pansies and winter-flowering cherry, tables decorated with acorns and moss features and tree stumps covered with quilts for guests to sit on. Brides should think floral crowns made from delicate pink heather and ivory crocheted shrugs to keep themselves warm in the woods.
Main Course by The Lambassadors
Wraps, burritos, burgers, cutlets and more… pretty much anything you can do with lamb, The Lambassadors are doing it. These guys are actually lamb farmers themselves who get all their organic meat from their family’s sustainable farm in Northamptonshire. Perfect for a woodland wedding, dishes include like their Harissa BBQ Leg of Lamb, smothered with harissa mayo, homemade chilli sauce, pickles, Tabbouleh and chives, and their Argentinian Asado Burger packed with roasted red peppers, chimichurri, caramelised onions and chipotle mayo, sandwiched between a soft brioche bun. Their wooden stall setup has glowing red and blue neon signage and will look just fabulous lighting up the night at your wedding.

Sweet Treats by The French Revolution
An elegant and ultimately delicious choice for a woodland wedding, The French Revolution serve crepes and galettes from the side of their lovely blue vintage van.

Drinks (and crumpets) by Good & Proper Tea Co.

Feast It think this is a really lovely way to cater for a woodland wedding in the depths of winter! All served from a 1974 Citroen H tea van, their crumpets come with lots of tempting toppings including, homemade raspberry jam, marmite and cheese, smashed avocado and chilli flakes, nutella, and butter and salt.

Barn Banquet Wedding
Celebrations that take place in barns are always a really jolly time and country-loving brides and grooms should consider this totally trendy theme for their special day. String the rafters with glowing yellow fairy light bulbs and cover hay bales with blankets, it’s going to be quite the knees up!
Main Course by The Duck Truck
A great choice for a traditional barn wedding in the countryside, The Duck Truck is run by head chef Ed Farrell, who has dedicated years of his culinary career to inventing cooking techniques and recipes with the outcome of the most succulent and flavoursome duck you’ll probably ever taste. Their Crispy Duck Wrap comes with hoisin sauce, fresh crunchy cucumber and spring onions, and their Duck Fat Chips are seriously epic and seasoned with rosemary salt (he also makes an incredible pan fried duck breast and pomegranate salad!) The truck itself is pretty cool, with a shiny chrome exterior and big blue neon lettering on top. If you want great grub that also exudes refinement and gastronomy, then book The Duck Truck for your winter barn wedding!
Sweet Treats by Los Churros Amigos
Doughy yet crispy, naughty yet vegan, Los Churros Amigos make outrageously yummy deep fried Spanish churros, which they smother with melted Belgian chocolate (this bit isn’t vegan, sorry) and serve in brown paper cup. These guys have served their fresh tasty treats at a vast number of events, from the Twitter Headquarters in Soho to Glastonbury Festival, so you can trust that they’re super professional and great at what they do.
