Planning Your Wedding Catering

Concept

Once you have secured your booking with us as your wedding catering team, we work alongside you to guide you through designing the perfect day, paying meticulous attention to detail.

Whether you have devised a specific theme for your wedding menu, or if food has barely even sprung to mind yet, we have the experience required to create a delectable array of dishes that are tailored to suit your tastes. We work with you to infuse your own favourite flavours, experiences and adventures together to develop unique concepts. Taking into account what will be in prime season for your wedding, our Head Chef, Steve, utilises these concepts in conjuring up dishes that are entirely bespoke to you.

Taster Sessions

First, we invite you to try your dishes during a warm and welcoming taster session set in our own home. This is a chance to try the tasty dishes we have cooked up for you, based on the concept we have created together. After the session, we’ll sit down to have a cup of tea together and welcome any feedback you may have, enabling us to create the perfect menu for the day itself. We also like to work with you on the wedding planning, to help ensure everything goes as seamlessly as possible. With many years experience, we can advise on anything from creating your timings for the day together to introducing you to other fellow suppliers.

If you need reassuring that we are the perfect catering service for you, your taster session can be arranged to take place before you secure your booking with us.

Personalised Wedding Catering Guide

After the tasting session, we will send over your personalised wedding catering guide. All information gathered thus far is combined into one place, so you can share it with the other suppliers involved in making your big day complete and have all those important details in one place. The guide has useful tips weaved in on everything we have learned along our way.

We are continually working with our clients to brush up on the finer details, right up until their big day. We also want to make planning your wedding as simple as possible, so we can suggest other brilliantly talented suppliers where necessary.

At Fossil Food Catering, we provide a service that goes above and beyond being just your caterer. The personal touch we provide with our catering service transcends just the planning and preparing of exquisite foods, as we take the time to get to know you as a couple.  We are always on call to help with whatever may pop up along the way, making your whole planning experience as fun and enjoyable as possible. Our door is always open!

Wedding Planning Questions

There really is no question too obvious, please don't hesitate to ask us anything about wedding catering and how we can help.

You mention personal service – what does that really mean?

Relationships are at the heart of our business - Afterall we are in the business of love. We purposely cap our bookings every year to ensure the quality of our service from your booking right through to the big day itself. Even after if you want to stay in touch like many of our couples have done in the past! We like to work this way so we can dedicate the time and attention every booking deserves and needs to plan a wedding. The personal service means us (Kirsty & Steve) will always be at your wedding day. On the odd occasion on a busy peak weekends Kirsty or Steve on the day with our amazing team.

Do you host tasters so we can try your food?

Yes – we love welcoming couples into our home to host tasters! It is the perfect time to get to know each other more and make changes if you wish to your menu. We also set aside unlimited time to get stuck into planning and answering your questions. Tasters are free of charge with a booking with us.

How much do caterers cost for wedding?

That really depends on how many courses you are looking to be served. Here at Fossil Food Catering we like to keep our costs super simple with no hidden extras. We don’t charge you extra because you want  X, Y or Z on the menu – we have one set price to avoid any unwanted surprises. Our prices include staff, complimentary tasters, wedding planning assistance throughout, tea and coffee and serveware. If you would like a quote from us – we would love to hear from you. Please drop us a message to discuss more.

Do you include waitering staff? If so, how many staff will be at my wedding?

We do – our team are all hand chosen by us and we never work with an agency. We know this bunch personally and are confident they all share our passion in making your day the best day ever! We work on the ratio of 1 staff member to 12 – 15 guests.

Will you serve our drinks?

Not a problem – we will serve your drinks from your canape reception right up until the end of your wedding breakfast – including filling your flutes for speeches too. We don’t charge anything extra – just happy to help!

Will you portion my wedding cake?

Sure thing – let us know when plan for your first cut together is planned for and we will then portion up ready for you to enjoy! We find a good time to serve your wedding cake to be alongside our complimentary tea and coffee stations.
