If you’re looking for an alternative to the traditional sit-down meal, SoGlosWeddings has rounded up 10 deliciously tempting and totally unique catering options, sure to go down a treat with the whole wedding party.


1. Chic street food


Combining the big tastes of America with the sophistication of Britain’s finest, Cotswold caterers Ross & Ross Food has found the perfect balance with its classy street food menu.

For a vintage-inspired wedding or an outdoor celebration Cotswold Vintage Scoop will drive its ice-cream van, Vinnie, to your wedding, serving up handmade ice-creams and retro ice lollies to guests as a quirky alternative to the dessert course, perhaps – and it makes for a great photo opportunity too.
