Street Food Wedding Catering
If a laid-back vibe is more your wedding style, this is right up your street. Replace the traditional sit down meal with funky street food wedding catering. Create a festival feel where guests can grab and go have fun.
The cool kid on the wedding block, street food is too chilled for any fuss and laughs in the face of formality. Saying a big fat ‘hell no’ to waiting patiently for your food to arrive (that sinking feeling when you realise waiters are working tables number order and oh, look, you’re on table 38!). Street food at weddings is all about quick, simple service with menus that can be pretty much anything.
You can embrace the street food vibe either by bringing in a couple of specialist vans or setting up some funky food stands or shacks. Perfect for outdoor weddings – looking all fancy beside the tipi or marque with guests wandering around in the sunshine. However, the beauty of the shacks is that they’re easy to set up inside as wet weather back up should the heavens decide to give you an unwanted wedding present.
Recreate your favourites from good ol’ British classics to some more daring world cuisine. What works best is to mix it up. A couple of safer crowd pleasers (like fish and chips or the classic hog roast) with one or two snazzy dishes (anything from gyros to kimchi rice). The world’s your oyster sauce.
