There is nothing worse than uninspiring food and drink at a wedding, on the contrary, it should be one of the most important aspects to the celebration and a way of thanking your guests for joining you on your special day. 5 Star Weddings lists some of the UK’s most creative catering companies and resident chefs – here’s a round-up of their 2012 specialities.
Goats Cheese Lollipops at Purple Grape Catering

Afternoon tea for your special day will reflect the traditions of Lord’s much-lauded cricket tea; hand-baked scones with homemade jam and Cornish clotted cream and finger sandwiches, cakes and dainties from Lord’s resident pâtissier Thierry Besselievre. A reception in the Long Room will see your guests enjoy the commanding views over Lord’s outfield and the architecturally significant and award winning JP Morgan Media Centre while enjoying the very best in quintessentially English dining.
