When the sun shines we all go a little crazy for al fresco dining. There is nothing better than enjoying some tasty nibbles and a glass of something ice cold on a warm summer day. We’ve all had that feeling when you arrive too late for lunch, it’s a hot day and all the tables outside are taken. You have to sit inside the restaurant green with envy knowing that everything from the paella to the Pino would taste just that little bit better if you were outside.. That’s why outdoor weddings work so well; guests can enjoy the wonderful weather while they celebrate your big day. And exactly why picnic style wedding catering is so awesome.
Whether dining under a tipi, an open sided sperry tent or yurt or completely al fresco on the beach or in a secluded woodland setting; laid-back, relaxed style wedding food works amazingly well, especially a ‘posh’ picnic.
Using the very best local produce from yummy sliced meats and freshly baked breads and dips to the finest cheese and tastiest veggies, you can create a delicious picnic style wedding feast that will fit your theme like a dream.
Serve canapes and sharing dishes in rustic apple and potato crates or go retro with mini picnic baskets for each table or couple to enjoy.
Summery, fresh and loadsa fun.
