Made to measure menus

As a bespoke venue, we may be relatively new to the barn wedding in Wiltshire scene but we’ve already experienced a whole host of different menus.

Some of our couples have chosen three courses of formal fine dining, others have dug into pie and mash. Others still have hired in vintage food trucks for a flame-grilled feast cooked live.

“The 2019 food trends are all about creating a wonderful dining experience for your guests that also truly reflects you as a couple,” explain Green Farm Events, who offer bespoke catering for Casterley’s couples.

“Choose your favourite foods in miniature with our genuinely tasty hot or cold canapés. Build your own menu to your tastes and requirements from Green Farm’s wide ranging selection of food. We work with you to make this happen with our bespoke catering service.”

Plate presentation

If you came to our Wedding Showcase, you will no doubt have tried canapés created by the talented team at McCrimmon & Reid. But you won’t only remember them for their flavour… You’ll also be blown away by the dramatic display each dish creates.

“Presentation is everything, and we make sure that each item we offer looks as good as it tastes! From edible flowers to traditional serving vessels, we are committed to making sure the memorable food design becomes a talking point for your guests,” McCrimmon & Reid explain.

With dry ice and colour pops a plenty, your food is guaranteed to come with a side of theatre.

Sociable servings

“2019 is all about bringing guests together for more interaction and conversation,” reveal the team behind Green Farm Events. “Use our fabulous centrepiece pudding platters to get people talking and sharing.”

Customise your choice of desserts and the platters on which they’re served to add a unique stamp to serve-yourself sweets.

George Goes Out offer both traditional and unique styles of service, from a set three-course wedding breakfast, to our Bring Me Food Feasts, BBQs and buffets.”

And if you want the best of both?

“Some couples opt for a formal wedding breakfast but will have grazing stations in the evening for people to enjoy different foods,” explains George Goes Out’s Michelle.

Time to dine

Between canapés during your cocktail hour, your wedding breakfast and your evening supper, there are a lot of plates to plan for your barn wedding in Wiltshire.

But don’t feel bound by the traditional three-part formula. You can introduce food whenever you want and even push your ceremony time back to take one meal away. This can be a great budget-stretching move. Whether you’d like light bites or marshmallows to toast on the cast iron fire pit, it can all be arranged.

Timing the food just right is crucial. You don’t want your guests to grow hungry after the ceremony while you’re busy taking photos. Neither do you want guests to get the nibbles and run out of steam on the dance floor. This is something your caterer will be able to help you with.

“It is often the case that our couples focus so much on looking after their guests that they forget to enjoy their day. In the planning process, George Goes Out will focus on timings, schedules and running orders. We use our experience in events to ensure that you can enjoy every moment,” reassures Michelle.

Ethical eats

Here at Casterley, we’re committed to helping every couple personalise their barn wedding in Wiltshire, in ways great and small.

One way to do exactly that is to have your wedding reflect your values as a couple. As an eco-friendly, off-the-grid venue, we’re a great choice for eco-conscious couples, as are our partner caterers Green Farm Events:

“We can source organic ingredients, ethically farmed meats or create a vegetarian feast to reflect what’s really important to you,” they say.
