RICHARD KAYE, HEAD CHEF AT THE KILCOT INN, NEWENT

Cotswold Life - - COTSWOLD WEDDINGS -

Choose what you and your part­ner want to eat. It is your big day and most wed­ding venues will be able to cater for di­etary re­quire­ments within this. The most suc­cess­ful wed­ding meal I ever catered for was hot dogs for 100 guests fol­lowed by ice cream cones. Ev­ery­one joined in the sense of fun and it was what the bride and groom wanted.

It’s im­por­tant not to un­der es­ti­mate how long it takes to get 100 peo­ple seated. Tim­ings are im­por­tant to a kitchen and if you are re­ally late it can have an ef­fect on the food. The most com­mon mis­take is imag­in­ing that get­ting 100 peo­ple to find their seat on a seat­ing plan, grab a drink, go to the toi­let and sit down will take 10 min­utes - it won’t.
