With large group gatherings not currently possible due to the COVID-19 pandemic, engaged couples are looking to hold more intimate wedding ceremonies and celebrations in 2021. And, as a result, ‘Micro Weddings’ are set to be one of the next biggest wedding trends according to Hitched. So, if you’re looking to get married next year with just a few of your closest friends and family present, and want a dining experience that will feel just as special as a big and extravagant celebration, read on for some micro wedding catering inspiration.
Intimate Fine Dining
Micro weddings lend themselves brilliantly to an intimate fine dining experience. Instead of a large banquet, why not choose a more formal three, four or five-course meal that is served on small tables of maybe two, four or six people, at most. Beautifully plated dishes bring a more refined feel to your special day. From rose harissa lamb and bream fregola pasta to pea and mint risotto and blue cheese croquettes, dishes that are lovingly handmade and full of flavour will please everyone. Here at Full Flavour Events, we also offer a Private Chef service, so if your wedding party is very small, we can bring you restaurant quality food in the comfort of your own home or garden. We’ll create high-quality, delicious meals that will compliment your romantic celebration.
With just a small crowd of people to cater for, you have the opportunity to create a wedding menu that is entirely unique to you. Many couples are now opting for dishes that conjure up nostalgic memories. You might want to recreate a favourite pudding from your childhood or serve the cocktail that you were drinking when your fiance proposed. Whatever it is that you want to include, we can help you to make it happen. You may also decide to select better quality food and wine than you would have done for a big wedding. According to Vogue, some couples are choosing to spend a little bit more per head and upgrade on their choice of ingredients to make their wedding breakfast even more memorable.
If you want to support British suppliers and reduce the carbon footprint of your wedding, the use of locally-sourced produce is a popular trend. According to Hitched, more and more couples are opting for ‘locavore’ menus where ingredients are bought in from smaller suppliers that are situated close to home. Think seasonal fruits and vegetables, locally-farmed meats and foraged herbs. Here, at Full Flavour Events, using fresh, seasonal and locally-sourced produce has always been key to our business. We work very closely with premium-quality farms, charcuteries, fishmongers and bakers across the South West of England to create exceptional dishes that not only support the local economy but taste incredible too.
Sustainability is currently at the forefront of everybody’s agenda, and many couples are taking care to make sure their wedding celebration is kind to the environment too. According to Bridebook zero-plastic and reduced-waste weddings could save more than 15,000 tonnes of wedding waste from ending up in landfill. The very nature of a micro wedding is, in itself, kinder to the environment than a big lavish event with fewer resources required. Here at Full Flavour Events, we always try to keep food waste to a minimum, and we can work with you to create a menu that avoids over-catering.
