1. Traditional wedding breakfast


If you’re sticking to tradition, a three-course meal is perfect and guaranteed to delight guests. A classic catering option, couples can create a menu of their favourite dishes; encompassing a delicate starter, main meal and indulgent dessert, they can be creative as they wish.


2. Festival-themed barbecue


A sizzling barbecue is great for summer celebrations and casual dining, complementing rustic or festival-themed weddings perfectly. Couples can go as fancy or laidback as they wish; from juicy burgers and grilled kebabs to marinated chicken skewers and accompanying salads, the options are endless.


3. Sharing board supper

Whether you’re eating alfresco or inside, a sharing board supper offers the perfect opportunity for wedding guests to socialise as they tuck in. What’s more when served on wooden boards, it looks great too.


4. Cocktails and canapés

Delicate canapés are perfect for a pre-wedding breakfast treat, or light bite at the evening reception. Small and dainty or more substantial, canapés are a classic at weddings; for the ultimate treat, serve alongside cocktails and guests will be in heaven.


5. Tapas feast

Ross and Ross Food

Light bites that are ideal for sharing, tapas dishes are a great option for the wedding breakfast or wedding reception. The traditional Spanish appetizers can be served hot or cold; meat, fish or vegetarian; and as big or little as desired, with guests able to mix and match as they wish.


6. Dessert heaven

Make dessert a little more special with a dedicated dessert table, ladder or station that guests can visit. Even better, this allows for a range of different desserts – and that’s sure to delight those with a sweet tooth!


7. Chic street food


Burgers, pizza, pulled pork, and much more – street food adds a definite modern vibe to celebrations. Whether it’s served to guests as they mingle or during a sit-down meal, street food can complement various wedding themes.


8. Classic roast


Wave the flag for the country’s favourite food tradition by serving up a hearty roast for the wedding breakfast. Couples can go for either an elegantly-presented version or feast with all the trimmings; either way, you can guarantee that guests will love it.


9. Garden party picnic

Ross and Ross Food

Take things outside with a quintessentially British picnic, putting a special twist on the staple pastime. With choices such as dainty sandwiches and cake, strawberries and cream or an elaborate feast, couples can create their very own picnic celebration.
