When you’re planning and organising your wedding day, there are generally three big areas you focus on; the wedding venue, the wedding outfits, and the wedding food.
Once you’ve chosen your venue and decided what type of dress you’d like, the final biggest decision is the catering for your big day. It’s one of the most exciting and variable decisions too, as there’s lots to think about to make sure your wedding breakfast is as perfect as possible.
Finding and choosing food caterers for your wedding can be a bit of minefield, and we want to make that process as simple and stress-free as possible. So here’s what to expect from your food caterers with a wedding at Heaton House Farm.
Everything you need from Stable Yard Catering
We know that finding an amazing caterer is a big task in itself, and we want to make sure that every single part of your wedding breakfast is handled perfectly. We want you to have a caterer who delivers exceptional food, without fail.
That’s why we went out looking for our very own head chef, and a team of sous chefs, and created our own sister company – Stable Yard Catering – to supply the very best food for your wedding at Heaton House Farm.
You’ll get direct contact with the Stable Yard Catering team to discuss any and all requirements you have – whatever you’d like. And you know that you can trust them.
- You don’t need to stress about shopping around – our Stable Yard Catering team can take care of everything for you
- You don’t need to worry about the quality of the food
- You don’t need to worry about cutlery or plates, as that’s all taken care of
- The catering team know exactly how we operate at Heaton House Farm and are familiar with our kitchens
- We know that our team are more than capable of handling all the logistics of serving hundreds of people
- We all know that you’re going to get an incredible selection of food for your wedding breakfast.
If you require specialist caterings for Halal or Kosher menus, we have a list of approved caterers, who we know can deliver exceptional cuisine for Asian and Jewish weddings, and have extensive experience working with Heaton House Farm.
Deciding what to eat at your wedding
That’s the next big decision – choosing what type of food you’d like.
Will you be having canapés and nibbles? Are you having a traditional 3 course wedding breakfast, or a BBQ out on the patio?
The choice is yours!
Some of our top ideas to think about:
- Hoast a Roast
- Sharing dishes on the tables
- Different stalls set-up to bring a variety of world cuisines to the wedding
- Street food or festival fare
- A traditional, formal style dinner with set courses
- An informal buffet option
- Afternoon tea
- Themed plates and dishes
Don’t forget to think about what type of food you’d like for evening guests too, if you’re inviting extra friends and family later on. Your caterers will talk through this with you too!
Finalising your menu
We recommend you email the Stable Yard Catering team – or our approved Kosher & Halal suppliers – to have a chat about what you’d like for your wedding breakfast and decide which dishes you prefer.
Then the team will invite you to a personal tasting session in our Stable Yard Restaurant, to taste what you may want to eat on the big day – and if you visit on an Open Day, there will be plenty of samples to try too.
You’ll be able to talk through your options and help you finalise exactly what your menu should contain. Like any good wedding caterer, they’ll advise you on costs and practicalities, special dietary requirements and a style of food that complements your theme and venue.
Leaving the catering team to it
With our catering team taking care of everything, you can simply enjoy your special day. We’ll handle all the logistics of serving multiple courses. We’re make sure buffet visits are organised by table to prevent overcrowding. And we’ll keep everything flowing perfectly.
It’s why you have a wedding coordinator. And why we have our dedicated, in house Stable Yard Catering company.
We work together, the Heaton House Farm events team and the Stable Yard Catering team, to ensure that every aspect of the set-up, serving and clean-up operation is taken care of.
You don’t need to worry about making sure the caterers turn up on time, or that they have the right power and water supplies. You don’t need to order in plates and napkins, or spend the night before setting up tables. Together, we handle everything.
All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the delicious food when it’s brought out.
