Weddings

The Shellfish Pig loves a good wedding!

We’ve got your wedding food covered! Your guests can come up to the van or to our outdoor kitchen set up and collect their food direct from our Chefs, or we can serve up vibrant platters and bowls direct to your tables. 

We also like nothing more than creeping in mid-evening and surprising wedding guests with some late night smoked pulled pork rolls and crackling served fresh from the van, or providing more lavish shellfish platters as canapés or afternoon snacks!

Whatever your needs, we can do any or all of the following…

  • Canapés and full drinks receptions
  • Main meal for your wedding breakfast, including starters and desserts
  • Grazing boards and evening food to fuel the evening party
  • Brunch for the morning after
  • Breakfast for before the wedding

 

The food was really amazing

Thank you so much for everything you did for us at the wedding. We had nothing but endless compliments about the quality of the food and the friendly service you both provided. The leftovers the next day were all eaten up as well by lots of very happy family members. The food really was amazing and we could not recommend you guys highly enough to anyone.

The Shellfish Pig are awesome!

The Shellfish Pig are awesome! We organised our Cornwall wedding from over 300 miles away so we were so nervous selecting someone to cater our wedding without knowing much about them. We read about Shellfish Pig on a blog post and after looking through their menus we knew they were the one for us! Nick helped us create an absolutely delicious wedding feast with pulled pork, jerk pork, fresh monkfish, truffle Mac n cheese and more. We weren’t sure how our guests would react to such an informal feast but everyone raved about the food for weeks. We can’t thank Nick enough for instantly “getting” our idea of a feast that still looked pretty. We also had a couple of very serious food requirements which often means the guests in question aren’t able to eat out. Nick made sure the menu was appropriate for everyone and even took time to reassure our guests on the day itself. It meant so much to them (and us) that they were able to enjoy absolutely everything. One last thing. Get the scallipops! I’m so upset that we live 300 miles away and I can’t have easy access to them now!!

The food was outstanding and we had the most perfect day

The Shellfish Pig catered for our wedding on 31.03.18, all of our guests commented on how amazing and delicious the food was. We had a vintage theme and it was presented so beautifully with flowers and fitted with our theme perfectly. Nick was so great to deal with in the lead up to the wedding, chatting to me over the phone and via email whilst we finalised the dishes, and then meeting in person at the venue to sort out the last few details! The food was outstanding and we had the most perfect day. As a real foodie it was so important to me that our guests have a meal to remember…needless to say whenever we catch up with friends and talk about the wedding the food is one of the first things to be mentioned…dishes are even being recreated at home! Thanks again for such a fabulous feast

Nick was amazing from start to finish.

Nick was amazing from start to finish. I contacted him a year before my wedding and he could not have done enough! He always replied quickly, and was so helpful in every way. The food at our wedding was AMAZING! Such fresh flavours, bright colours and so tasty. The guests were very impressed! Nick is so lovely and professional, and clearly has a real passion for the food he produces. It was a real pleasure to have Nick as a part of our day, and also to chat to over the months building up to the wedding. The Shellfish Pig is a cut above the rest, and we are so happy we chose them to cater our big day. You deserve every success guys! 5*!!!!!

Cost

We charge a hire fee of £500 and then a price per person based on the food you would like us to bring along.

The hire fee is payable as a non-refundable deposit to secure the booking, and the remaining balance for the food is due at least 14 days before your wedding date.

There may be an additional charge for fuel & travel if your wedding venue is further than 25 miles from Penryn. We can also look at reducing the hire fee for smaller, more intimate weddings.

 What’s included?

We can serve your guests straight from our van or street food kitchen setup (just like a festival). If you’d like food served directly to your guests at the tables, you’ll need to hire serving staff, we often team up with Serve HQ and highly recommend them.

Costs include platters for our food and if necessary, street-food-style boxes, trays and eco cutlery. If you want to have real crockery and cutlery, or specific platters and bowls for feast-style eating, you’ll need to hire or provide these yourselves.  (We recommend Abbots Hire, and are always happy to help you get this sorted).

We try to be flexible, so if you have a style of service or delivery in mind then feel free to let us know and we can discuss it!

These are just a taste of what we can offer. Send us an enquiry below and we can send you our full menu list with prices. We’re always happy to work with you to create the perfect menu for your wedding or event.
