Struggling for wedding breakfast inspiration? If you like the sound of an all-British menu, take a look at these ideas to whet your appetite
If you're hankering for an all-British wedding breakfast for your big day, here are some mouthwatering suggestions from five UK caterers.
1. Lamb rump
Using the best locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients, Beales Gourmet's team of Michelin trained chefs create sensational British-inspired wedding breakfast dishes. A great example is their hugely popular spring lamb rump; succulent, Dorset-reared lamb, cooked medium rare and served with spiced red cabbage, gratin potatoes, leek puree and rosemary jus.
2. Scottish traditions
One of Regis Banqueting's most popular dishes is a modern version of traditional Scottish haggis, neeps and tatties. The version is served in a filo pastry parcel with glayva cream reduction and can be served as a bite size canapé as well as starter or main size dish.
3. Salmon salad
Managing director of Super Events in Sussex, Tony Brewing proffers their fresh salmon with a herb crust; a nice and simple dish that transcends mums, dads, grandparents - just about everyone. Hot fresh salmon on a summer season salad medley with a balsamic and olive oil dressing offers the perfect accompaniment to a summer wedding.
4. Scallop starter
Adam Brown, executive chef at Mallory Court in Leamington Spa, has noted that brides and grooms often request seasonality and all-British ingredients for their wedding breakfasts. Supporting local suppliers and using British produce is something that is close to Adam's heart. This scallops dish is light, neatly presented and full of flavour - the perfect starter for a wedding-day breakfast.
5. Mini picnic
These picnic baskets from Kemp and Kemp in Stafford are brought to each table containing herby scotch eggs, a terrine of pate, individual asparagus and goats cheese tarts, a truckle of local cheese, a kilner jar of homemade chutney, and a bowl of baby tomatoes on the vine. To embrace the al fresco theme even further, add rustic breads and butter, some summer sunshine and decorate the tables with potted herbs.
