Weddings for food lovers

One of the hottest wedding trends this year was the foodie wedding, and Hand Picked Hotels can cater for even the most passionate of food lovers.

If you are a wedding couple with a passion for cuisine, then a selection of traditional canapés followed by a typical three-course menu may not feature high up on your wish list. Fortunately Hand Picked Hotels can cater for not just intimate foodie weddings but for a party of any size. From the bizarre – such as a Mad Hatter’s afternoon tea themed wedding reception, to the gourmet – such as a six course taster menu; we can cater for pretty much anything you would like. Wedding couples will be invited to work with the venue’s head chef and his or her team to concoct their ideal menu, as well as receive advice on wine pairing. 

All of our venues are famous for not just the quality of their cooking but for embracing local produce, too. The 17th century Chilston Park Hotel in Lenham is perfect example of that, where much of their food is sourced from nearby farms or the Kent coastline. Another venue perfect for foodies is the Rookery Hall Hotel & Spa, where the dining is all about regional flavours and seasonal ingredients. Nestled in the foothills of the Malvern Hills, Stanbrook Abbey Hotel can offer a selection of culinary experiences and represents fine dining in The Midlands at its best. Offering similarly captivating views but of the Leven Valley, is Crathorne Hall on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors, whose head chef will delight you with the sights and smells of his creations. 

If you are planning a dream-come-to-life wedding and you want the food to match, then Hand Picked Hotels will work with you one-on-one to ensure that you get the fantasy menu that you have always wished for. Explore our other wedding venues here.
