Whether it’s small and informal or a large-scale lavish affair, your wedding should be magical and memorable for all the right reasons.
Green Fig Catering Company are experienced wedding caterers in East Sussex who are really up for a challenge! We cater for many traditional and wonderful weddings, yet we also love to look at more unusual and fun themes for your special day.
Every wedding is unique, which is why we take the time to talk with you in detail to put together a menu that works for you and your budget.
Unlike larger catering companies we will personally undertake every part of the catering, from planning to cooking. After the initial discussion we will offer you a free tasting at our kitchens in Polegate near Eastbourne, and what’s more we will actually be there on the day to replicate what you’ve tasted and approved.
And rest assured, we only take on one large event at a time. It’s your day, and we will guarantee you our undivided attention.
But the perfect wedding is not just about great food. Organising such an important event for the first time can be a daunting task, but we’ll help you piece together the day as a whole – breaking it down into bite-size chunks as it were. We can advise on other services such as marquee hire, equipment hire, bars and bands. Don’t forget we also offer an add-on package to the ever popular hog roast hire – a firm favourite for evening receptions!
Informal Wedding Catering
The trend is that people seem to be moving slightly away from the formal sit down menus – guests all love to mingle, especially the main wedding party, which makes some of our wedding catering ideal. So if it is a curry you are after, a barbecue or tapas, then talk to us! If it is a relaxed picnic hamper wedding or perhaps an afternoon tea, that’s no problem! We offer some wonderful canapés if you want an informal way of chatting before sitting down for the main courses. And then there are the desserts….
Our wedding custom is firmly based on word of mouth referrals and recommendations. You’ll be in safe hands with Green Fig Catering Company, but don’t just take our word for it. Take a look at some of our testimonials to see what others are saying about us…
Based fairly centrally in Sussex means that we can work right up to Tunbridge Wells, as well as down to Brighton and across to Hastings. We can offer each of our bridal couples an Event Sheet which we will update as and when during the time leading up to the big day.
And don’t forget the hen and stag night! Why not get the party started with a sumptuous finger buffet or celebration dinner with your friends, perhaps a spot of private dining? Living in the wonderfully historic Battle, we love working with couples from around here as well as Hastings and Bexhill. As well as being wedding caterers in East Sussex, we also love catering for special lunches such as family celebrations, business lunches and larger event catering but it’s fair to say weddings are the main deal.
