Local Wedding Venues

Wedding Catering Menus

We’re lucky enough to be based in Sussex where great suppliers are in abundance. Our fish is sourced from Brighton, meats from Steyning and Worthing and our local greengrocer Jeremy’s is less than two miles from our kitchens. We smoke our own fish and meat on site, dry cure our own charcuterie in a bespoke curing chamber, and grow our own herbs, micro herbs, and edible flowers at Gastro Catering HQ.

Sharing Food

Sharing Food

Almost all of our wedding menus can be shared around the table, or served ‘family style’. This is a growing trend and we like it! Your wedding guests have fun and interact whilst relaxing and enjoying great food and wine. For example, you could have a selection of barbecued meat/fish options with a range of salads beautifully presented on the table for guests to serve themselves. This is a great option for modern, relaxed weddings.

Wedding Canapes

Wedding Canapes

We’ve had many hours of fun in our development kitchen working on the presentation of these canapes so that they look (and taste) completely unique, delicious and exciting. We use a variety of different canape trays with floral decorations tailored to suit your event such as slices of oak, slates, antique mirrors and many more. We also offer bespoke canape trays custom designed to complement your wedding theme.

Wedding Spit Roast

Wedding Spit Roast

We use Sussex raised, free-range pork so that you know we’re roasting only the highest quality meat when catering for your wedding reception. Our pigs are marinated overnight in herbs and seasoning before being very slowly cooked over charcoal for 8 hours to give a succulent depth of flavour and perfect crackling. We serve this with a selection of inspired salads at your tables for guests to share, or at a multi-level interactive food station.

Food Stations

Food Stations

Treat your guests to an interactive dining experience. Stations are carefully sited and displayed with purpose with each station themed or styled to suit the food being presented. For example, an Italian station with a leg of home-cured prosciutto carved to order. Or how about fruits de mer displayed on a custom-carved ice display? The only limit is your imagination.

Wedding Buffet Catering

Wedding Buffet Catering

Our extensive cold buffet menu comprises a wide variety of home-made dishes to suit all tastes. There’s everything from continental inspired mezze platters and charcuterie boards, to British classics like game pies, cheeseboards and traditional afternoon tea. Our hot buffets, meanwhile, incorporate a wide variety of contemporary twists on favourite classics, served piping hot straight to your plate by our friendly serving staff.

Wedding Bowl Food

Wedding Bowl Food

Small bowls of exciting dishes from around the world. Have a theme or just choose your favourites from our menus. The beautifully garnished bowls are served by our waiting staff for guests to nibble whilst chatting and enjoying the ambiance of your wedding. This makes an ideal evening food option, an alternative to canapes on arrival, or can replace a starter for a more informal yet substantial reception offering.

Evening Food

Evening Food

Our range of evening snacks, which has been creatively designed with fun and flavour in mind, feature simple, tasty options such as our own home-cured bacon butties and filled pitta pockets. Other exciting evening dining options include an authentic Mexican taco bar or an interactive bagel station. Make sure your evening wedding guests feel looked after and treat all your guests to food with style and substance.

Bespoke Wedding Menus
