Wedding Catering: "Something Different"

Wedding Catering: "Something Different"

Looking for something innovative and different for your big day?  Uninspired by the standard "glass of bubbly, canapés and 3 course sit down dinner" package? There are many catering companies who specialise in something that little bit different...

1.  Mobile Cocktail Bars - Forget the bubbly.  Why not let your guests grab a Cosmopolitan or a Mojito.  Mobile bars are great for guests gathering outside, bringing cocktails to your guests in a stylish and portable manner. Bar de Cru provide a chic and sophisticated mobile bar for an upmarket experience.

2. Hog roasts - Uninspired by a 3 course sit down meal?  Hog roasts offer a tasty alternative, with guests able to choose what they fancy from a meaty buffet feast.  Great for a summer wedding, hog roasts offer a more relaxed and informal dining experience. Wrighton's Roasters in Fritwell offer a huge selection of mouth watering ideas for you to choose from, including a hog roast, the ultimate barbecue and a selection of delicious desserts.

3. An Ice Cream Trike - Looking for something yummy your guests can enjoy throughout your wedding day?  Ice cream trikes are popular with adults and especially younger guests. Perfect for a wedding set in gardens, ice cream can act a casual yet charming snack for your loved ones. Mags and Tims in Oxfordshire serve delicious traditional Ice cream from their 1940's style trike, even providing a variety of delicious topping such as sprinkles, choc sticks, flakes & sauces.

4. Cheese wedding cakes - Cheese wedding cakes are perfect for the cheese lover seeking something original for their big day.  The cakes even prove practical as guests can eat them throughout the evening to soak up the alcohol! You can choose from a variety of cheeses, including soft, hard and blue cheeses, and the cakes can be decadently dressed with flowers and fruits. The Oxford Cheese Wedding Cake Company use English and Continental Farmhouse cheeses to build the wedding cake of your choice.
