If you’re organising a festival inspired wedding, planning your event catering is going to help define the tone of the day and create that relaxed, buzzing atmosphere you want. Here are some delicious festival style food ideas to make your special day one which has everyone talking for months to come.
BBQ Wedding Food
Cooking using smoke, wood and fire is a great way to add those festival style elements to your wedding food. Creating a festival themed wedding isn’t just about the napkins you lay out or the bunting you choose, but the sounds, aromas and excitement you create with your food. This is where BBQ style options, rotisseries or hog roasts are a great idea, as guests will delight in the sizzling sounds, the vision of delicious food being slow cooked in front of them and their mouths watering throughout the day. Perfect for weddings in Mayfair or events in Westminster.
When attending any type of festival, one of the best parts is trying popular foods from different cultures from around the globe. So why not choose some of your favourites for your wedding dishes? If you’re opting for a BBQ feast, you could combine your menus with anything from Asian flavours to Mexican spices. You could even include various cooking styles from around the world, including Argentine Asado style cooking. It uses wood and fire to slowly roast food so that you end up with succulent meat on the inside while the outside becomes crispy and smoky.
Whatever the time of year you’ve booked your festival style wedding for, there’s no doubt that this style of food is going to bring out the summer vibes. When thinking about summer flavours to add to your party menu, ideas include choosing in-season ingredients. Speak to your wedding caterer about the freshest flavours at this time of year and how they can be incorporated into your dishes. You could even think about adding some fiery spices in combination with cooler flavours such as sour cream which cut through the heat.
Wood Fired Pizzas
Pizzas are a great option for those who want a few fun aspects to their festival style celebrations. Wood fired for a crispy base and packed with the taste of fresh ingredients, this type of festival style wedding food is ideal for all ages and could be chosen as your main food or an evening snack.
Think about the desserts you’d like to serve, as you can veer away from traditional options and go for something a little different. If your wedding is in the summertime, something like strawberries and cream, or Eton mess are great ideas or incorporate some of these flavours into other treats such as doughnuts. You could even go for smaller bites to stick with the informal theme, including chocolate brownie bites which you could serve with vanilla ice cream.
