Food will play a huge part in your wedding celebration; from the canapés you serve post-ceremony to the multi-course banquet and evening buffet enjoyed later in the day and in to the evening. Wedding days are known to go by in a flash but the celebration may feel long for your guests, especially if they have had to travel far.

It's important to ensure your wedding guests don’t feel hungry at any point during the day, so speak to your wedding venue about how they plan to serve food throughout the day, and what options are available. If you’re a foodie couple, make sure that your chosen wedding venue can live up to your wedding food expectations before you book.




With almost 20 years’ worth of experience, we at Bijou Weddings understand how important the food at your wedding can be, and therefore we make it easy for our couples to pick and choose food that they love and know their guests will love too. Carefully prepared by our in-house brigade of chefs, we invite couples to taste a platter of our most popular dishes so they can then select the perfect combination menu with options to enhance it if required.

Aside from delicate canapés and traditional three-course wedding breakfast menus -  extravagant evening buffets, sweetie carts or dessert tables will be most welcome by evening guests, or daytime guests craving something extra to keep their energy going on the dance floor.

Top Tip: Don’t forget to ask your guests about any dietary requirements well in advance of the big day.
