How.. We cook fresh on-site
Typically we will make the initial food preparations at our base kitchen (mostly all the choppy & fiddly bits), bring to the event in chilled food transport containers, construct, cook and serve as fresh as possible.
We bake our breads on-site
We will construct an ‘on-site kitchen’, and/or use any facilities available to cook and serve from.
All our food is hand made by us.
Other solutions are sometimes used depending on location and budget.

You need to choose what style of menu you want
I suggest if there is going to be a period between the ceremony and sitting down for dinner then some canapés, finger food or something as simple as bread and dips to start.
