Wedding Planning

These days, wedding food is usually a far cry from the traditional ‘breakfast’ and evening buffet. Chicken supreme and melon balls are out (unless, of course, you like those dishes!) and the world is literally your oyster when it comes to feeding your guests.

Here at Northside Farm, every taste, budget and number of guests is catered for. We take great pride in serving you a mouth-watering meal to remember.

When the sun begins to set and your guests have worked up a hearty appetite, there are a myriad of ways to ensure they’re well fed. Here are just a few evening food ideas to whet your appetite…

Streets Ahead

Food trucks and street-style vendors have taken the wedding catering scene by storm and it looks like they’re here to stay. It’s a simple, fun way of serving up scrummy treats for your guests.

In the evening, the courtyard at Northside Farm becomes the perfect space in which to create a little bit of theatre with your food. Street food stalls, our famous barn butties, a BBQ, or gourmet burger bar are all possibilities.

Amazing Graze

Grazing tables are like edible works of art. Fill yours, fit to bursting, with cold meats, antipasti, cheeses, fruits and crudités, dips, breads and crackers.

It’s also a lovely way to support and showcase local suppliers of simple, tasty, hearty food.

Go the Whole Hog

Hog roasts create an incredible atmosphere and are a real talking point. They aren’t for everyone though, so make sure you are providing something just as spectacular for those with different dietary needs and tastes.

Bowl Them Over

An easy way to feed guests without stopping the fun and frivolities is by serving them something they can eat with ease. No seating required, just a bowl and a fork. Guests can simply self-serve from big pans filled with curries, chilli or paella.

Cater for Everyone

Catering for special dietary requirements and children is no longer something that should cause stress or extra work. Simply tell us what you need, and we’ll make sure everyone is tucking into something delicious.

Desserts Are Not an Afterthought

Invite your guests to bring a homemade cake, tart or pie for your evening spread. You could even turn it into a bit of a bake off and award a prize for the best pud.

A table groaning under the weight of all those delicious desserts is definitely our idea of a showstopper!
