We understand that choosing the perfect food for your wedding day is a crucial step in planning the day. We’ll work flexibly alongside you to bring your ideas to life, with food and flavours to reflect you as a couple and your budget. From a pie and mash supper to theatrical sharing platters or a formal five-course wedding breakfast, we can turn your ideas and Pinterest board into reality! We love to excite people not only with our unique wedding food, but with new ways of delivering to the table, our aim is to make your wedding a truly fantastic experience for you and your guests.

Why Should We Cater Your Wedding?

We understand how many things you have on your plate when organising a wedding menu. We'll seamlessly guide you through the whole process, making sure we create not only a memorable menu, but give you a joyful experience that goes beyond just the food! Weddings can be overwhelming and it can be confusing knowing where to start, get inspiration from one of our specially curated menus -  these are not your typical wedding menus (we promise!) and then we can take your ideas from there!

Book your first meeting with one of our dedicated Event Coordinators as soon as possible as dates are filling up fast! From there the team will guide you through the first stages of planning your perfect feast! We will then put together a quote based on your ideas and hold off the date in our diary while we answer any questions you may have. 

If you wish to proceed - and we do hope you do! We will then send across our contract for you to look over.

To confirm the date we require a 25% deposit and your completed contract returned.

Wedding Catering FAQs

How does wedding catering work? We don’t just cook the food. We will also set up your tables and chairs, provide professional wait staff, serve up your food on time, clean the dining and kitchen areas afterwards, pack up any leftovers and provide evening snacks if required.

What do we discuss during the first catering meeting? We will talk through your plans, budget and any ideas you have about your menu. In turn we will provide guidance and our own ideas on what we can do to make your day perfect.

Do you offer tastings? Yes! After our initial meeting we shall cook a tasting menu for you to try so you can tailor the menu to your own preferences.

Can you help with the bar? Check out our Friends of Baba page to see which incredibly talented suppliers we work with that provide bars and alcohol for your wedding.

We need a marquee can you help? Yes we can! We work with several local companies who can help provide you with tipis, tents and marquees.

What is the best menu for a wedding? There is no right or wrong here. This really is down to your own personal choice. We can cater to buffet weddings, BBQs and sit-down meals depending on your preference.

How far in advance should you book your wedding caterer? This really can depend on a number of factors and we can cater to all different time frames. Typically, 10-12 months in advanced is average and gives us plenty of time to ensure your wedding catering is flawlessly executed.

How much does wedding catering cost? Wedding catering prices vary dramatically depending on what type of wedding catering you would like, how many guests there are going to be and what type of food will be served. On average wedding catering prices are between £1000 - £2500 but this does not mean your wedding catering price will be within this range. We recommend getting in touch with us for a quote and we will help you work within your wedding budget.

How do you calculate catering per person? To calculate how much money you need per person, take your catering budget and divide that by your number of guests. However, we have a wide range of menus and can personalise them to your needs, we can help you stick you your budget during our first meeting.
