Wave bye bye to traditional three course meals, say cheerio to bland finger buffets and tootles to the same old canapés. Step forward the sharing platter, offering up amazing dishes that encourage your guests to get into the mix and mingle across the table.

 

 

This relaxed style ensures that your wedding breakfast is full of choice and packed with flavour. Select a couple of showstopper mains and an array of fresh seasonal sides and hey pesto, you have a mouth-watering wedding feast.

 

 

From fun and funky platters to perfect picnic tables, this style of wedding food is fast becoming my all time favourite.
