Congratulations on your engagement and on making the exciting decision to make North Yorkshire your choice for your big day. We have had the pleasure of catering at a number of stunning venues in the region and can assure you that you will be spoilt for choice for locations to celebrate with your close friends and family!
As you begin to plan your wedding, undoubtedly the catering will be one of your biggest considerations. Good food sets the tone for a memorable day and ensures your guests are in fine spirits for an evening of festivities. Your menu is also a great way to make your mark on your day with dishes that are true to your culinary style as a couple. Whilst we have a number of menus we can share with you to help inspire ideas, our preference is always to create a bespoke menu that reflects your vision for your day.
Whether you are looking for a traditional sit-down meal, or fancy something more informal like a rustic buffet, our talented team have the skills to create an unforgettably unique menu.
Canapes, amuse bouche, hors d'oeuvres - whatever you choose to call them - a light bite to welcome your guests during a cocktail hour can be a wonderful way to set the tone for things to come. We have a huge range of exciting ideas we can share during your consultation, but we also pride ourselves on creating completely custom creations. Some of our favourites include the mini homemade cheeseburger on a seeded bread roll, Cajun crushed avocado garlic and lemon taco and of course, the regional favourite, a mini Yorkshire pudding!
As well as canapes and light bites to welcome your guests, we are increasingly finding couples that are opting for a grazing style buffet or even Yorkshire tapas instead of a traditional sit-down meal. Our buffet options are an elegant way to cater to a wide range of tastes and avoid the inevitable headaches that come with meal selection on RSVPs. With grazing boards and charcuterie boards laden with delicious local meats and cheeses, your guests will be spoilt for choice.
For couples that crave a taste of tradition, our three-course menu is the perfect option. Our chefs use the best local ingredients to prepare a scrumptious menu. During our tasting session, we will consult with you so your meal includes some of your favourite flavours so whilst we can share set menus, we like to treat these as a starting point to help find the perfect dishes for your day.
We are sure you have lots of questions as you start planning your wedding. Check out our FAQs for help and advice on organising your wedding catering.
We will always try to accommodate bookings where we can and understand that with the challenges of Covid affecting weddings there is a need to be flexible. We usually fill up quickly in the busier wedding seasons so would always suggest booking sooner rather than later. Generally, once you have your venue booked it is a good next step to book your catering.
We provide a fully bespoke service to our couples and aim to find a way to maximise your budget whilst delighting you and your guests. Packages can range from finger food style buffets to full 3-course table service including linen, glassware and tableware hire. If you have something in mind that you don’t see on our website, please still reach out, we are always happy to help if we can! You can view some of our sample menus here:
Of course! It is so important to us that every one of your guests enjoy delicious Yorkshire fare. Our Chefs are experienced in catering for allergies and intolerances as well as creating yummy vegan, pescatarian and vegetarian meals.
Our Children’s menu has been designed to suit even the fussiest eaters and ensure clean plates and happy parents on your big day! We have main course classics like chicken goujons and chips, sausages and cheddar mash and fish and chips as well as a vegetarian tomato pasta. Our desserts will be met with equal excitement with every child’s favourite, ice cream and jelly, on the menu. You can view our sample menu here.
We have had the pleasure of catering in some of the many wonderful local venues including Bolton Castle at Castle Bolton, Rudby Hall in Yarm, and Bedale Hall and can also offer venue hire at our Richmond based premises for up to 50 guests. When selecting your venue, it is important to find out the kitchen set-up as this will determine the type of catering we are able to offer. For rural, remote or outdoor venues we also have kitchen equipment we can provide so there is no need to compromise on the type of catering you would like.
Yes, we are able to provide this as part of your wedding catering package. Our linens are crisp white so are suitable for most colour schemes and styles and we have simple and stylish tableware and glassware. We are happy to show samples during our consultation and if preferred we are also able to work with any hire companies who you choose to source different tableware.
Absolutely, one of our favourite things to do is to demonstrate our style and attention to detail directly to our couples. It is our opportunity to show how we have listened to and understood your needs and many couples comment that a tasting session is one of the highlights of wedding planning!

"I would recommend Amanda and Matt for outside catering. The food was superb and very well presented.
They communicated every detail and went the extra mile in all they did. I had a private party for my mums 80th and could not fault the service or food.
The 25 guests were all talking about the delicious food.
For peace of mind I would recommend you use them!"
