Your wedding day is one of the most memorable of your life, so you need a menu that reflects the special atmosphere you desire. If you want to treat your loved ones while choosing a menu that creates amazing memories of the event, a wedding hog roast is hard to beat.
Back in the summer, we catered for a Merseyside wedding, cooking a hog roast that impressed the masses. Here’s what happened.
THE EVENT – A summer marquee wedding
Hog roasts are perfect for weddings all year round, but for this event, it was a truly sizzling occasion. Our lovely couple had organised a summer wedding with around 100 guests in attendance. The celebration took place in a marquee, perfect for creating your own theme and giving guests space to mingle and eat.
THE MENU – Planning a wedding hog roast
While some people just opt for BBQ catering in the evening, this couple wanted a wedding hog roast package to cover the entirety of their day. This included food for a canape reception, a main hog roast meal for their wedding breakfast, desserts and evening snacks. The hog roast was seasoned, marinaded and slow-cooked for several hours until the meat slipped off the bone, producing the most tender pork and crispy crackling.
THE RESULTS – A hog roast feast to remember
This wedding hog roast was a resounding success, elevating each part of the day. We started by offering a BBQ canape station where couples can select three dishes for guests to enjoy after the ceremony. Options include surf ‘n’ turf skewers, boerewors bites, smoked salmon crostini, grilled halloumi and vegetable skewers, lamb lollypops and mini corn on the cobs with a butter dip.
We also put on a scrumptious hog roast main for our couple and their nearest and dearest. We arrived early to prepare and get cooking before food was delivered to tables. These sharing platters produced impressive centrepieces while creating a talking point to help break the ice between guests. The main course was completed with sides and desserts, and we even stayed on to provide evening snacks, keeping celebrations going into the night.
