Weddings

 

Congratulations, if you are looking at this page the likelihood is you are starting to research for your big day. (Or maybe someone else’s if you are lucky enough to be entrusted with this task)

 

Wedding catering can be overwhelming, there are so many options and styles. Formal plated, buffet, fork and walk, live cooking stations and the list goes on. Then when you have decided on the style the options open up further. If I choose plated how many options should we give? Should we do a dessert buffet? etc etc

 

Well for now forget about all the options. Give me a call on 02102498656 or email chefblakeman@yahoo.co.uk and we will book an appointment to go through all the possibilities. Let me buy you a coffee, even in your break in the city during the week, I can work around you. Continue scrolling though to get a feel for what options you might be looking for.

 

 

 

If you want to start to get a feel for some of the options keep reading on for some examples. However all my menus whether private dinners or catering for weddings are bespoke so there is nothing we can’t do.

 

So what are some of the options?

Canapes

We have a massive range of canapes from traditional finger food to the very trendy fork and walk for something a little more substantial. Fork and walk can be a great alternative to an entrée, they can even act as a whole meal in a casual setting if done correctly.

 

Seated dinner

This is the one full of options. 3 course is the tradition but you can extend this and have a feast and do more than 3 courses. Alternatively you can swap out the entrée or dessert for platters on the tables. Another great way of finishing the meal with a dessert buffet which could include things like a “lolly shop” or a chocolate fountain.

All of these menus will be personally designed with you.

 

Buffet

From simple to lavish anything is possible with buffets, again you can finish with the “lolly shop” concept for dessert

 

Live catering stations

For casual or formal a guaranteed way to impress is live chef stations. A chef will man each of your chosen stations whether it is tacos, wok, pasta, dessert or whatever we can imagine.

 

What can we provide?

Obviously we bring the food but often we are asked if the client needs to organise other things. Not only can we bring everything from plates and serve ware I am also happy to work with my suppliers to help you with table decorations, room decorations or whatever else you may need. ALL EQUIPMENT IS HIRED TO YOU AT COST, we do not charge extra for hiring anything for you.

 

The basic agreed price for your catering includes cutlery, crockery and staff to serve the food. If you decide you would like me to arrange beverages then glasses are included with this as well.

 

After our discussion I will send a fully itemised quote for you to agree.

In addition I have plenty of contacts in Floristry, venues and much more so can potentially help beyond just the catering.
