Wedding Breakfasts are such an exciting part of any wedding day... Everyone is looking forward to tasting incredible food served beautifully, all ready for Instagram! The food has to be perfect, has to be tailored for everyone, and has to be delicious!
I met Fossil Food Catering at a recent cocktail party wedding in my home village of Bishopsteignton and as soon as the canapés came into sight, I was in awe. They tasted incredible which I had a whole plate for myself! The wedding breakfast was beautifully displayed on wooden serving boards for guests to grab what they like... there was more than enough to go round too!
Let's hear what Fossil Food has to offer for an amazing wedding breakfast and more!

Q:Tell me one of your favourite reviews!
A:We love them all! You can find our all 5* reviews on our Google page and Facebook page.
Q:Do you work on a set menu or do you offer a bespoke menu?

A:We offer a personal service which means we only cater for weddings as business owners we can personally attend. We feel it is important to build relationships with our customers and hand deliver those details and high standards we have promised. We actually have a magic number of weddings we are aiming for before we shut the diary as quality over quantity is at the face of everything we do.
Q:Will you provide a banquet manager to coordinate the meal service or an on-site coordinator who will run the entire event?
A:Exactly! Details and service our just as important as the food! We always provide a full team and a senior maitre d to make sure high standards are always delivered.

Q:Can you accommodate dietary restrictions, such as kosher, vegan, etc.?
Q:What décor do you provide for appetiser stations or buffet tables?

Q:Do you provide alcoholic beverages and bartenders? Can you accommodate specialty cocktails?
A:We personally our focusing on food as cocktails is an art all by itself but we do work with some fabulous bars! We will happily serve all drinks up until the wedding breakfast which brides the gap ready for the bar to open and keep the party going.
Q:Is the champagne toast after the ceremony included in your meal packages or is it extra?
