Summer is the most popular time for weddings, and when the weather’s as glorious as it is right now, it’s no wonder! Whether you’re taking advantage of the long days in June, or planning your nuptials during the hottest months in July and August, a summer wedding affords you many opportunities to embrace the season. And that includes your wedding catering! Whether I’m whipping up an afternoon tea or a grazing table for my clients, I always include fresh, local produce. And of course, this time of year is ideal for incorporating plenty of seasonal produce that’s bursting with flavour. For example, think of classic British summertime foods like strawberries, berries and asparagus that your guests will love. Here are my top tips for creating the most inviting summer wedding menu.
Serve garden party fare
Keep it light
Make it playful
Keep guests cool
Take your cue from Italian-style eating
If anyone knows about eating well in warm weather, it’s the Italians! Their cuisine is perfectly suited to their temperate climate. So take your cue from Mediterranean-style eating by serving a beautiful Antipasto spread, with olives, charcuterie, and artisan breads and cheeses, like the ones I create as part of my curated grazing tables.
