Wedding Catering  

With many years catering for special occasions we know how important the food on your wedding day is.  We will work closely with you as a couple to design the perfect menu that reflects your style and taste.  We have a very wide range of sample menus for you to choose from, but that doesn’t mean we won’t create something that’s not in print! 

 

Our approach is very much tailored so that we take the time to get to know couples and really understand exactly what their vision is for their big day and what they are looking for in their caterer. Planning a wedding is a big job, but we will ensure you get the personal touch all the way through. To maintain standards and to give you our undivided attention we only cater for one wedding a week, meaning our availability is limited!

To ensure we're the right caterer for you, firstly we like to meet you both over a Skype / facetime call to fully understand your requirements from the outset and to answer any questions you may have. We will then work closely with you over the months leading up to your wedding and are available to chat to you at any point leading up to the big day itself. 

Out of the wedding season May to October we offer tastings at our home. Tastings are very important to us, they provide us with an opportunity to meet and talk through your plans while you sample some dishes and choose which ones fit your wedding perfectly or discuss alternative dishes.

What our couples say!

"We got back from minimoon last night. And just wanted to say a massive thank you for last weekend. The food was amazing, all our guests were raving about it. The service was fabulous. And we are extremely grateful to you and all your staff for keeping it cool and very professional despite the insane weather conditions".

We are located on the Dordogne and Charente border and will travel up to 2 hrs away, any further would incur additional costs as we would need to stay over.  If there isn't a kitchen available that's not a problem, we are happy to bring our own. As mobile caterers we bring our own refrigeration, equipment and clear everything away at the end of the day.  We can also hire crockery, cutlery, glasses and accessories to complement our food. 

On the day, we will liaise with your principle person or wedding planner to help the day run smoothly.  We work with an experienced team of servers that provide efficient service from start to finish, ensuring you and your guests can relax and enjoy your wedding celebrations.​ You can be assured of our care throughout the day.

 

Our Menus  

We have developed a series of sample menus to prompt inspiration. If you're considering a sit down meal Presley has created a 5 course Sit Down menu that includes, Canapes, Starter, Main, Dessert, Cheese & Coffee, with a French influence, using fresh, seasonal produce and his take on some regional specialities. Many couples choose to have the cheese course served as a lovely cheese platter later in the evening. 

If you're not looking for a sit down meal and wanting more of a social vibe then we can offer a Sharing Menu of beautiful sharing platters, grazing tables, food stations and a Hog Roast or BBQ Feast it's very much up to you.  

We are very happy to accommodate individual food allergies and special dietary requirements and recommend offering your guests a choice of dishes to accommodate different tastes. 

 

The options we suggest in our sample menus are forever evolving based on the seasonal availability of ingredients, so our sample menus will change from time to time.
