A guide to Wedding Catering Pricing

By Lovejoy Catering and Events

The food and drink that you and your guests enjoy on your wedding day plays an important part in your celebration. Once your wedding date and venue have been decided, the next big decision to make is the wedding catering. It is worth noting that due to its significance your wedding catering will form a substantial amount of your budget.

Planning a wedding should be exciting and this is especially true when it comes to choosing and tasting wedding food. However at Lovejoys Catering and Events we understand that researching catering companies, looking over several menus and reading through wedding catering contracts, can be a bit daunting. It is really important to have a conversation with any potential wedding caterer so that they can guide you through their packages and quotes.

There are many factors that will affect the price of your wedding catering and these include the number of guests, the style of food, the staff levels that are required, the location of your wedding and the equipment available at the venue.

At Lovejoy Catering and Events we appreciate that each wedding is unique, which is why we take the time to understand exactly what you would love and what your budget is. We love to hear all about your plans for a magical wedding day, and only after we understand these requirements, we then produce exact pricing for your special day. We will provide a comprehensive quote which includes the catering prices per person, which allows you to understand how the price will vary based on the number of guests.

Our packages ensure you can rest assured everything is being managed and that there are no hidden costs.

As each wedding is unique it is difficult to provide an exact catering cost per person however the prices set-out below provide a guide:

  • Wedding package- 4 canapés, three-course meal and evening option - from £45 per person (inc. VAT)

  • Three-course wedding breakfast - from £37 per person (inc. VAT)

Take a look at our wedding and event menu which outlines the delicious dishes available in each wedding ​catering package.

This is a guide to the most popular options we offer but by no means all that we offer.

Barbecues and Hog Roasts Hog roasts and barbecues are popular choices for both wedding breakfasts and evening receptions and are often less expensive than a formal sit-down dinner.

Prices start at £10 per person.

Afternoon Tea Afternoon tea wedding catering packages have become a lot more popular over the last few years and are a great alternative to a three-course sit-down meal. Enjoy the formality of having the afternoon tea served by waiting staff or the more informal atmosphere provided by a buffet afternoon tea.

Prices start at £15 per person.
