Wedding Caterers Yorkshire

Wedding season is almost upon us, and the beautiful Yorkshire wedding venues here at Escrick Park are booking up fast! If you’re looking to tie the knot in the peaceful Yorkshire countryside this year or next, there are lots of wedding services you ought to consider besides just the venue. Have you booked a marquee to keep out the weather on the day, and a wedding photographer to record your memories for a lifetime? One of the key considerations is catering – you don't want all of your friends and relatives thinking of their bellies while they watch you say your vows! Fortunately, those happy couples who choose to wed here at Escrick Park can choose between six of Yorkshire’s finest wedding caterers. Take a look at them all in more detail!

The Thought of Food

The Thought of Food is Yorkshire’s premier specialist outside catering and bar service, helping to make your wedding a day to remember for all the right reasons. From hot and cold buffets to salad bars, summer BBQs and elaborate party menus, The Thought of Food is far from short on variety! Why not opt for a summer BBQ if you’re choosing to tie the knot when the weather is at it’s best? Tandoori monkfish skewers and hot new potatoes with crème frâiche and chives are pretty impossible to resist...


Party and events caterers Saunts offer something for every taste. From sit-down buffet menus to formal dinners and more informal, help yourself-style services including barbecues and hog roasts, Saunts has your wedding needs covered. We think a summertime hog roast is the perfect social event to help your wedding guests mingle before you open up the bar and get everyone up and dancing!

Artisan Pizza Company

If you think pizzas belong in the supermarket freezer aisle as opposed to on the menus of high quality restaurants, you ought to become acquainted with the Artisan Pizza Company. Using wood fired ovens in the traditional Italian style, this mobile catering company can serve up mouth-watering creations for your guests in the splendour of the Yorkshire countryside. Traditional Italian pizza varieties are served from a vintage Citroen van, giving an air of rustic charm to your rural wedding!

The Yorkshire Party Company

The best thing about hosting weddings here at Escrick Park is that every one is different – you never know quite what the event is going to look like! If your wedding requires a taste of the high life, then look no further than The Yorkshire Party Company. Serving seasonal menus of the highest quality ingredients, the presentation of the dishes is as important as the flavour. Why not add an air of luxury to your rural Yorkshire wedding?

The Hog & Apple

Sometimes, the traditional approach is the best approach. What better way to feed a large group of wedding guests than with a hot and succulent hog roast? The Hog & Apple is no ordinary hog roast, however. With traditional and rare breed meats on offer alongside canapés, salads and buffet options, you’d be hard pressed to find a better caterer for your spring or summer rural wedding.

Eat Me, Drink Me

Love the idea of a rural wedding, but don’t want to run the risk of outdoor catering? Eat Me, Drink Me is at your service. Serving traditional four course meals and providing all of the crockery and table linen you’ll need to meet your guests’ needs, Eat Me, Drink Me is all about dining in style. With fully stocked bar services on offer, too, you’ll be able to kill two birds with one stone with the help of this Yorkshire catering company!
