From bubbly bars to build your own Gin & Tonic stations, cocktail hour is sure crowd pleaser. Many bridal couples are creating an experience for their guests and allowing them to enjoy small snippets of their beautiful journey in varied details of their wedding celebration.

Needless to say, there is a little something for everyone and it really is the gift that keeps on giving. Accent with florals and personalised food tags to make it the culinary experience of dreams.

Poke Bowls

We are absolutely crushing on this amazing foodie trend. Not only is it so delicious and visually appealing, but is an amazing way to introduce varied flavour sensations to your guests. Poke is a simple dish that is built around bold flavours, bright colours and fresh ingredients. Better yet, you can create them with and without animal products so there is a little something for your vegetarian and vegan guests too.

Food Trucks

It is no secret that we love food trucks, and to have them at a wedding celebration is nothing short of a fiesta. Not only does it break the mould of traditional, but allows for an amazing interactive and fun element for your guests. Ideal for outdoor festival style receptions, your guests have full control of what they want to eat and when they want to eat it. As the bridal couple, it allows you to enjoy maximum time with your nearest and dearest. Enjoy the ultimate alfresco dining experience with amazing tasting food and flavour sensations. Your guests will love it!
