When choosing wedding catering, the trick to achieving a truly special feast for your loved ones is to incorporate your dishes into the theme of the day. BBQs banquets and sharing platters are becoming increasingly popular, creating talking points for guests (especially if there’s outdoor cooking to enjoy) and a relaxed atmosphere. Not everyone chooses to book their wedding at widely advertised venues, making use of other spaces they have access to. This can help couples to remain as creative as possible when planning their dream wedding. Here’s an example of this idea in action, catering for a Surrey wedding taking place on a family farm.

Wedding banquet catering in Haslemere, Surrey - a sharing platter feast

Choosing an Unconventional Venue

At With Fire, we love working at a huge variety of venues, including those which take place somewhere a little different. Back in September, we were chosen to cater for a wedding near Haslemere in Surrey, where Rachel and Kai were tying the knot. The celebrations were held at the bride’s family farm, making guests feel at home for a fun and enjoyable day. They even had photos taken with the bride, groom and bridesmaids on a tractor, creating some fantastic shots they’ll remember forever. We love couples who inject their personalities into their plans as it makes the day even more memorable.

Creating a Feast to Match the Theme

We wanted to create a wedding menu which would complement the location perfectly and add a real sense of excitement to the day. We worked with Rachel and Kai to plan every part of their wedding food, supplying their canapes, each course and sharing platters for the wedding breakfast, as well as evening snacks. Each part of your menu should come together to delight and surprise guests at every turn, and that’s certainly what we achieved for this couple.

The Delicious Wedding Menu

As you can see from some of the photographs of the day, the feast we produced for wedding guests was truly mouth-watering. We started by serving canapes of seared tuna with wasabi and avocado cream, lamb lollipops with chimichurri and mushroom ragu, and blue cheese brioche sliders. For the wedding breakfast, we slow-cooked orange and fennel duck breast to perfection on our fire, accompanied by Mediterranean vegetables, pomegranate and tahini. This was served on large sharing platters, delivered straight to the tables in a banquet style presentation. Dessert was a delicious Eton mess, complementing the beautiful weather. In the evening, wood fired pizzas were the perfect pick-me-up for guests, fresh from our ovens.
