Cocktail hour
A cocktail hour will keep guests happy while they mingle and wait for the reception to start. It also gives you time to finish having those all-important photos.  To keep guests comfortable during the drinks reception, provide seating, games, soft music and an open bar with non-alcoholic options. Appetisers will go down a treat too. Don’t be afraid to be creative – serve edible spoons, or lemon sorbets as a palate-cleanser before the main meal starts.

Founded in 1976, Pieroth Wines is one of the world's finest wine wholesalers, operating across 20 countries. Pieroth offers wine-tasting before you buy, and wine-tasting events. Book a wine-tasting session and try some samples with Pieroth Wines on stand 1.

Shrink it down
A great way to incorporate personality and keep your wedding food interesting is to create mini versions of your favourite meals. This works well at a buffet. For example: serve mini burgers, quesadillas and beef wellingtons.  Going small also works well with desserts.

Blacks Burgers, a lively American eatery in Croydon, is the proud home of Europe’s largest burger – the infamous ‘Beast’. Find Blacks Burgers on stand 251. The quirky Blacks Burgers burger van will also be on display.

Go interactive
To make your food memorable why not create a DIY food station? This is a good conversation starter and fun for kids. Provide DIY ice-cream sundaes or a pancake bar. Keep it healthy by having a frozen yoghurt station.

Ann's Designer Cakes is an artisan cake company, and has been making cakes of distinction for more than 15 years. Ann’s offers a personalised service with inclusive design consultation and sample tasting. Ann's Designer Cakes will be on stand 56.

Family style
Serve food family-style, allowing guests to be able to help themselves and eat as much as they like. This alternative to the traditional silver service wedding breakfast or buffet is cost-effective and efficient. Guests can tuck in straight away, and chat as they relax over the food.

Jamies Catering provides event catering for corporate and private clients across Berkshire, London and the Home Counties. The Jamies team pride themselves in having a ‘passion for perfection’ and will design a menu to suit your budget. Meet them on stand 88.

Gifts to go
Wedding favours are a popular way to say thank you to your guests and create a sweet memento of the day.
