Midweek Weddings - Further Information

MIDWEEK WEDDINGS: FURTHER INFORMATION

 

On this page we hope to expand upon what is outlines on our midweek weddings page, to clarify dietary requirements, and to help you to make your menu choices in preparation for your wedding day.

  1. DIETARY REQUIREMENTSPlease consult the green text below to see which dishes are suitable for those with special dietary requirements.  If you require any further information, please contact Holly Moore on info@wellseasonedcotswoldcaterers.co.uk
  2. MAKING YOUR CHOICES: We make it very easy for you to tell us which food you would like to have served at your wedding. Once you have booked with us, we shall send you an ‘event checklist’: this is your wedding Bible, where all of the information relating to your wedding at Owlpen will be stored.  We send it to you as a word document on our Google Drive.  This means that you can update it whenever you like, and all changes will automatically be saved onto our server without you having to tell us.  Suddenly wedding admin just got so much easier!   You can save all of your menu choices into that document, and if we or the caterers have any queries, we can reach out to you in person.
  3. TASTINGS: One of the ways to keep costs down for our midweek weddings is that we don’t offer a tasting of the food free of charge. However, for a fee you can still book in for a tasting with our catering team if you’d like to try the food. Please contact them directly for assistance
  4. CHOICE: We ask that you choose from one of the available options for your guests, for children and adults alike, unless they have additional dietary requirements.  In the event that you would like to offer your guests to have the option to choose their dishes from the menu, there will be an additional fee of £2.50 per choice and per course for the entire party.

Dietary requirements

The caterers are able to adjust most dishes on the menu to cater for a number of dietary requirements.
