Fresh, Funky and Full of Flavour – Vegetarian and Vegan Wedding Catering

Veganuary has opened a lot of people’s eyes (and mouths) to how fabulous vegan and veggie dishes can be. Blasting the myth wide open that vegans survive on chickpeas and lettuce, showcasing powerful flavour combinations that pack a punch. At Thomas Towers we’ve long known the power of plants; using tasty seasonal veggies and oodles of fresh flavours in our creative vegetarian and vegan wedding catering.

Your wedding menu is a great opportunity to showcase to your nearest and dearest how delicious and inventive vegetable-based dishes can be.
