Miss Tea: Food is pretty much my life. If I’m not working you’ll find me somewhere in Cornwall fishing, reading about food, writing about it, preserving, talking to producers, baking bread, foraging, creating new recipes, cooking for friends, hot or cold smoking in the back garden… it goes on, I really am that nutty about the whole thing!
What can we have? Each menu is different, created specifically for each couple and based entirely on their favourite foods and ideas. I’ve done all from deliciously different 3 course wedding breakfasts, mezzes, summer picnics, afternoon teas, BBQs, thai street food, mediterranean, moroccan, greek and of course British! I’ve loved working on all of these, as it keeps my creativity alive as a cook. Food prices: Although we are happy to work with reasonable budgets… an average cost for a 3 course sit down wedding breakfast (created entirely from your own ideas) costs on average from £30 per head (food only). Amazing buffets, hand baked afternoon teas and anything in between generally fall between £25 – £30 per head (food only). Canapes are £7 per head – you get three of your choice and two of each (so 6 per guest). Ask me for some sample menus from previous clients.
Which days, how many guests and how much in total? I’m happy to cater for weekend, midweek and Winter weddings and can cater for up to 150 or so guests. I am completely upfront about pricing and there are no hidden costs.
Break it down: As an example a wedding in a marquee for around 100 guests generally costs around £6-6.5k, this includes all food (including evening food), staff and full service for the whole day, all service ware and linen, kitchen equipment we’d need to hire for the catering tent including gas. Download my wedding guide (opposite) it’s full of useful information. We do not charge for corkage, cutting your wedding cake, children of 6-11 years old do not pay full price and they can have their own menu if required. We are happy to cater for a small number of under 5s for free, however please note that there is a minimal charge per head if there is more than 5 or so under 5’s!

“Thank you for everything you did on the day, it was amazing, and your front of house were unbelievable…I couldn’t believe one person brought me one glass of champers all the way to where I was playing croquet…I was truly taken aback!! Truly wonderful food, the sharing platters went down brilliantly, and the canapés, just wow!!” James and Sophie x
