Wedding & Reception Catering

your special day

Are you looking for local wedding caterers that can create the perfect wedding reception food especially for you whilst staying within your budget? Look no further.

Here at Chefs Catering Northwest we create fully bespoke menus for your wedding and support you all the way through your planning process. Whether you are wanting something simple yet still elegant or if you want to go a little more fancy and treat your guests to luxury style food, our chefs can create the perfect menu with you in mind!

Our local areas stretch across Cumbria, Silverdale, Lancaster and everything in between.

The perfect menu

When it comes to creating the perfect wedding menu for you and your lovely guests we are there every step of the way. We arrange an initial consultation with you to really get to know you and how you want your special day to run. We will talk about everything from venue dressing to timings and, most importantly, your food menu!

The food at your wedding is something to look forward to before letting your hair down in the evening so we always make sure that it exceeds your expectations. Knowing you’ve got the best food for you and your guests is one thing to tick off your list.


Once we have had your initial consultation, our head chefs will get to work and create three options for you to choose from. These can be changed and adapted to your suiting and once you have your final choices, we will send you your very own bespoke wedding menu. From here we will then invite you along to one of our wedding food tasting sessions where you will try all of your menu to make sure that you are 100% happy with it.

Not sure where to start with your wedding menu? We have sample menus available to send out to you covering a variety of different styles and options. From BBQ’s, Buffets and Hog Roast to your traditional sit down meal (and everything in between) there can be a lot to choose from but rest assured we will support you any way we can.

traditional

classic sit-down wedding course meals

For the brides and grooms that like a more traditional approach, we can create classic wedding food for you and your guests that is still completely bespoke to you.

From your standard three course sit down meals with starters, mains and desserts for you and your guests to the ever popular wedding roast dinner, our traditional wedding menus are comprised of the very best local ingredients and cooked to the highest standards by our talented team of chefs.

Not only this but we have a full team of dedicated staff who will be there to serve your tables with precision and the very best standard of service throughout your entire evening.

wedding buffets

& finger food

There is an ever growing popularity with brides and grooms to have more of a buffet style menu or finger food for your guests to enjoy throughout the evening. Our buffet wedding food is of the same standard and quality as our traditional sit down meals and can still be made bespoke to you and your guests without being restricted to sitting at a table – your guests can mingle with one another at the same time as enjoying some great food!

Finger foods for weddings is something that is also growing in popularity – the ease and simpleness of these menus will ensure your guests can eat as much or as little as they like and throughout the entire evening.

Our brides often choose to have some finger foods or a small buffet later on in the evening after their traditional meal to keep the party going longer and their guests happy. We discuss all of these options with you at your consultation to ensure that you are getting exactly what you would like from your wedding caterers.

dietary needs

catered for

As with any of our menus and events we cater specifically to your dietary requirements. Everything from vegan and vegetarian to Gluten Free, we can cover you. Because all of our food is made in house by our chefs, all allergens or requirements can be catered for as we can control where and how everything is made to ensure the very best for you and your guests.

Our foods are healthy, nutritious and always made for you. Our menus are created with you in mind so all you need to do is make us aware of any requirements or allergens within your consultation and the rest is up to our chefs.

Weddings are a full family affair so for those with children, you have no need to worry. We can create menus specifically for the children at your wedding! With everything from sausage and mash to the ever popular chicken nuggets and chips (with our own spin on it of course) we can make sure your kids are taken care of just as much as the adults and with their favourite desserts made fresh and in house too, what more could you ask for?

wedding BBQs

& hog roast feasts

Have you got an outdoor wedding in mind? Here at Chefs Catering Northwest we really can cater to you. Not only can our chefs create immaculate 3 course meals to be served at your table, they are also able to create a Hog Roast to remember! With our very own Hog Roast machine and only the best local ingredients, you and your guests will enjoy the best spit roast catering that will last the entire evening so you don’t need to worry about anyone going hungry.

Outdoor wedding food gives you the chance to dance the night away with your family and friends and know that they are being well fed while they enjoy your evening with you. Hog Roast wedding catering is becoming more and more popular due to the ease and peace of mind it gives our clients. So why not give it a go and give your guests an outdoor wedding reception they will remember!

A BBQ at your wedding reception may not be your first thought when organising your wedding food but trust us, this can be a real winner for your guests. With a variety of food to meet your guests’ needs, we can create the perfect BBQ for your guests to enjoy if you don’t want to go the full ‘Hog’. We can even mix your wedding BBQ with our traditional afternoon teas and serve your guests their BBQ food in an Afternoon Tea style or on sharing platters for each table.

BESPOKE MENUS

Make your big day the best it can be with bespoke menus especially for you and ensure your dream wedding and a day that is memorable for you all with food you and your guests will be talking about for years to come.

VENUE DRESSING

When booking any event with us at Chefs Catering Northwest we can provide in house venue dressing that is bespoke to you and your vision. Whether you choose to host your event in one of our own venues or another, we work hand in hand with our professional wedding decorator who assists us with things like table centrepieces and wedding favours for your guests.

FAQ's

We are always up to date with COVID-19 regulations and restrictions however we are also aware that these are constantly changing. For your peace of mind we will of course keep you fully updated as your big day draws near and we will endeavor to ensure that your day is still catered for and to the highest standard.

This depends entirely on the size of your party. We work to your budget to make sure that you get something special but doesn’t break the bank. Our Hog Roasts start at £6.50pp for example or you can use one of our buffet menus for inspiration as to how much you want to spend. You tell us your budget and then leave it up to us!

We want you to have your wedding, your way. So if there is 20 people or 200 people we can work with it. Our only limitation is with our Hog Roast buffets where we do need a minimum of 50 guests however everything else is completely down to you. We do have experience in catering events for over 500 people so the more the merrier!

Of course! If you have booked your wedding reception at one of our venues, our servers will be there to welcome you and serve you for the entire evening. For a wedding outside of one of our venues, we can of course provide servers however this may come at an additional cost depending on distance and how many servers will be required.

We would always recommend having a little something available on arrival to keep your guests happy before you make your grand entrance and maybe a little something later on in the evening however this is completely down to you. We will discuss everything in our consultations to make sure that everyone is happy. From the picky eaters who don’t eat much to the people who love a good buffet, we can create something that covers everyone.

Definitely! After our initial consultation our chefs have 3 days to come up with three different options based on what we specify in our meeting. From here you have the option to chop and change or make any amendments until you are 100% happy. This is your day! We can also bring sample menus to our meeting should you wish in order to help with a starting point.

Here at Chefs Catering Northwest, we work in partnership with Ribbons and Roses who design and decorate our venues for large events and functions. This covers everything from ceiling drapes and backdrops to table decorations, centerpieces and even party favours for your guests. After your initial consultation we will then arrange for you to meet with ourselves and Ribbons and Roses to make sure your venue is dressed the way you want.

Out of the three venues we have, we would definitely recommend our Heysham Golf Club location as the perfect events venue especially for a wedding indoors. We have a huge space to be filled with your guests and that can be fully decorated to your desire. Our other location that is perfect for outdoor weddings or events is the historical Thurnham Hall. Boasting an extraordinary outdoor space to make the perfect backdrop for your photos, you can enjoy a quieter, more reserved event with your guests.
