When we decided to get married, we knew exactly what kind of wedding we wanted; We wanted to be stress free, we wanted it to be informal, our guests to feel relaxed and we didn’t want to spend a fortune. This also applied to our wedding food; we wanted good quality, locally sourced food at a reasonable price! After speaking to lots of catering companies we decided that we just couldn’t afford the kind of prices they were quoting as we were feeding 100 adults and 23 kids, so we started looking at other options….
As we live in Somerset with some fabulous food suppliers right on our doorstep we started thinking about how we could do our own DIY wedding food. It seemed a natural choice to choose a ploughman’s style lunch so we could take advantage of all the great local produce in our local area. This meant we saved a fortune and we able to showcase local Somerset food, we didn’t need to hire a field kitchen. Also by choosing to serve it in a picnic hamper on each table, people were able to serve themselves so we didn’t need waiting staff.
