The Perfect Christmas Wedding Menu

Inspiration - 14.12.18

The Perfect Christmas Wedding Menu

There are so many things we love about festive weddings and a fabulous Christmas menu is certainly one of them. From comforting classics to personalised winter cocktails, let’s be inspired by some Christmas menu ideas for your Davenport House wedding, all created by the talented team at Galloping Gourmet.

Exquisite Canapés

Following your romantic ceremony in The Great Hall, greet your guests and welcome them to Davenport House with a wonderful selection of drinks and canapés. Winter weddings lend themselves perfectly to warm canapés, from bamboo cones filled with crispy fried squid, caper and parsley mayonnaise to mini Yorkshire puddings with roast beef and horseradish cream.

And to drink…

Alongside those exquisite canapés, we’re rather partial to a warming Pimm’s Winter Cup, spiced cider, a classic Kir Royale or bespoke festive cocktail. Perhaps you might decide to have a Galloping Gourmet Gin Bar, offering guests a selection of gins with various tonics and fresh garnishes. Chocolate lovers will adore a boozy hot-chocolate station, serving it with a choice of Baileys, Tia Maria or Cointreau, alongside whipped cream and marshmallows, of course!

Don’t forget to serve a great non-alcoholic alternative, speaking to our team about mocktails, both for adults and for your younger guests.

Your Wedding Breakfast

Think of your wedding breakfast as the ultimate celebratory feast – an opportunity to sit and dine with your closest family and friends in the Drawing Room at Davenport House on one of the most special days of your life.

The team at Galloping Gourmet will be only too delighted to create your ultimate Christmas menu, perhaps a contemporary twist on the traditional Christmas turkey or even something entirely different such as fillet of beef Wellington or pan-roasted monkfish.

If you would like your day to take a less formal style, our casual dining menu is a great choice – a magnificent hog-roast being a particularly popular option.

Evening Celebrations

As day turns to evening and the dance floor fills, the evening food options from Galloping Gourmet offer an abundance of choice. Wood-fired pizza is always popular as are our chef stations – perfect for serving indoors around your party. Keep the Christmas party spirit alive with drums of beer and mini bottles of Prosecco!

Finally, if you’re a follower of wedding trends, you’ll love the idea of giving your guests an edible wedding favour. What could be better at Christmas than a personalised bag with ‘create your own’ Smores.

If you have yet to visit Davenport House, we would love to show you around. Simply give our friendly team a call on 01746 866333 or contact us online.
