Gourmet BBQ wedding catering is a very popular choice for summer celebrations. A guaranteed crowd-pleaser, a BBQ spread of tender meat, chargrilled vegetables and melt-in-the-mouth fish is guaranteed to be loved by all. A BBQ can lend itself to any wedding theme and there is plenty of freedom to create a bespoke menu to suit your and your guests’ tastes. Here are a few of our top tips for creating a BBQ spread for your wedding that will get everyone drooling with excitement…

Make it True to You

There is lots of fun to be had when creating a BBQ wedding menu. This is your chance to pick all of your favourite BBQ dishes and combine them into your own bespoke spread. Think about the theme of your wedding and try to incorporate that into the flavours too; jerk chicken is perfect for a Caribbean vibe, or for a more rustic wedding, grilled mackerel with salsa verde is a sure-fire winner. Plus, if any of your guests have special dietary requirements, include some tasty options for them too. 

Create Some Theatre

A wedding barbecue is a real treat for the senses – the tantalising waft of hot coals, the crackle of a roaring fire and the sight of gently browned meat and charcoaled vegetables will create an atmosphere of anticipation and excitement. And why not add an element of drama with a slow-cooked wood fire feast; shoulders of lamb and whole baked fish hanging over a smokey fire pit is a great spectacle for any event.

Use Fresh and Local Produce

Make sure your caterer uses fresh produce for your wedding BBQ spread to ensure your feast is super tasty and full of flavour. Sourcing meat and vegetables locally is also a good way to reduce your impact on the environment and to support local farms and businesses. 

Add a Bit On The Side

A wedding BBQ wouldn’t be complete without all of the trimmings. Accompany the main feast with a large spread of contemporary salads, homemade dressings, chunks of rustic bread and zingy dips. Bowls of summer slaw, garden leaves and a pea and feta mix will complement grilled platters perfectly.  

Book a BBQ Wedding Caterer

For high-quality BBQ catering for your wedding, book a professional BBQ caterer. While a DIY set up is possible, a wedding caterer will take away all of the stress and ensure you and your guests are treated to a top-quality BBQ feast on your big day.
