Traditionally wedding catering is of the formal sit-down sort, but this doesn’t need to be the case, and increasingly couples are opting for the exciting alternative of a wedding buffet. This has many advantages. First, of course, wedding buffet food will look spectacular. Instead of plated food we can create huge decorated pies, plump terrines, great bowls of colourful salads, whole baked fish on beds of fresh green herbs, cheese boards overflowing with every variety of hard or creamy cheese, with luscious bunches of purple grapes. It goes without saying that we will ensure all of this tastes every bit as good as it looks,
Another advantage of wedding buffet food is the sheer range of different delicious treats you will be able to offer your guests. Everyone can choose just what they put onto their plate, a little of this, a slice of that and a couple of spoonsful of something else, then they can come back for more of what they fancy. All is relaxed and informal and your guests can decide just how much (or, in rare cases, how little), they want to eat.
Wedding Buffet Food
Wedding buffet food also, because it is so informal, encourages your guests to chat as they wait their turn at the mushroom wellington or the rabbit and leek pie. People are able to move around the room, perhaps meet others they wouldn’t encounter if they had their food delivered to them in the traditional way.
And choosing wedding buffet food is often more affordable, which for many couples is an important consideration. Creating, plating up and serving individual meals tends to be more expensive, and more staff are required to cater to the needs of seated guests, so we at Elizabeth Caton Food and Wine , often suggest wedding buffet catering as a slightly more price friendly option. This should not, however, suggest that it is a second rate choice...we will work with you to make sure that your buffet is completely delicious, individual and beautifully presented, so that your own ideas of your dream wedding come to life on the buffet table
Locally Sourced Organic Buffet Catering
Elizabeth, Charlotte and their highly professional team are very conscious of how their ingredients are sourced: organic, local and free range, wherever possible. In the summer we can dig or pick much of what we cook from our own kitchen garden, things don’t get much more local than that. You can even visit us for a tasting, and at the same time take a tour of our vegetable plot and orchard.
So if the idea of a wedding buffet appeals to you or if you would just like to know more about what is involved, then please do contact us. We would love to hear from you.
