You probably know that I work a lot at outdoor wedding venues in the Midlands. You may also know that my biggest passion in life (other than weddings, of course) is food. And to me, it’s fascinating how these two worlds come together!
A lot of people love the idea of a unique venue like a tipi, but the practicalities often confuse them. With no kitchen or facilities on site to speak of and everything seeming pretty sparse, you may think your catering options would be pretty limited. But in actual fact, it’s just the opposite! There is a whole world of possibilities open to you and so many fabulous caterers ready to step in and provide something amazing - one of my favorites being the Rustic Roast Kitchen.
These guys regularly pop up at venues that I love - my own two preferred venues Elmbridge Farm and Oakfield Gardens, as well as lots of other fabulous DIY venues and local barns, farms and marquees. They work closely with Elite Tipis and other brilliant local venues so that they can cater for your big day wherever you envisage it being held. These guys bring with them everything you need, so whether you’re in a field or a forest it won’t matter - you can still have amazing food!
More often than not, those who are going for a quirky style of wedding are looking for more relaxed or informal catering. Rustic Roast have an array of options from barbeques, posh pies, fish & chips and wood-fired pizzas to elegant canapés and afternoon tea. They’ll work with you to help you work out what you need and come up with menus to suit. They also have a brilliant team who are on hand to serve and make sure everything goes swimmingly for you, and there are glowing reviews for Heather who takes care of everything to make sure you have the best food for your special day.

I’m so excited to work with these guys on weddings in the future! They’ll also be at our Wedding Walkthrough in Feb 2022 to talk you through their amazing catering options: you can get tickets for that here!
