We’re not talking jeans and a T-Shirt – although we’re also not stopping you – casual dining is a popular Devon wedding catering choice.

Wedding venues in our beautiful county tend to come with countryside or seaside in abundance! So with such gorgeous and relaxed settings, it’s no surprise that casual and comforting are two words Devon wedding catering companies hear requests for time and time again!

The style of food you choose totally helps to set the vibe for your Big Day. Casual dining calls for hearty, flavourful dishes and informal serving styles to make for a fun and laid back party atmosphere.

From canapés to evening food, you can keep it casual whilst still filling the day with wonderful food!

Evidence presented below:


They don’t all have to be architectural marvels with your initials painted on top in a seven-herb emulsion. Keep it casual with:

  • Thai Panang beef meatball skewers with toasted coconut
  • Sausage rolls with fennel salt
  • Seared rump steak and horseradish cream profiterole
  • Chorizo skewers glazed with Pedro Ximenez sherry vinegar
  • Smoked salmon blini with crème fraîche and caviar

Case closed.


Guests don’t have to sit and wait for an individual plate of food to be delivered. Instead, they could all be tucking into stunning sharing platters to get the the fun times (not to mention the wine) flowing.

Salami Milano, Chorizo, Serrano, Somerset mature cheddar, Cornish brie, olives, sun-blushed tomatoes and ciabatta with olive oil and balsamic

Picture the platter approaching your table: Italian meats arm in arm with olives and tomatoes, breads begging to be dipped in oil, cheeses laid out, ready for the taking. No fancy foams or dehydrated mousses plated in designer dressings. Just a good, casual, delicious spread of amazing food!

Main Courses

You could continue the sharing platter theme into your main course with…

Boards of BBQ pulled pork, smoked chilli jam, Boston baked beans, coleslaw, potato salad and fresh bread

Or, you could mix and match serving styles and opt for something classic. How about a Devon wedding catering staple, a simple, casual, comforting plate of…

Trio of roast sausage with herby mash potatoes and caramelised onion gravy

We went there. Wedding Day sausage and mash. Bish, bosh, bash.

Just like how any good story has a beginning, middle and end, any triumphant day of Devon wedding catering finishes with dessert.

Simple, sweet and YUM are the three principles to keeping it casual for dessert.

Treacle tart with clotted cream and fresh berries

Chocolate caramel brownie with chocolate coulis and clotted cream

Sharing style: Apple and raspberry crumble with vanilla custard

To name just a few super easy to demolish options!

Evening Food

Bye, bye basic buffets! We’re definitely going extra for the evening. We couldn’t really venture into Devon wedding catering without paying homage to our cousins over the border. So, call us controversial, but we’re putting forward Cornish pasties as a grand finale to your day of casual dining?

Or, if it’s just too painful to surrender credit to our neighbouring county, we suggest,7 inch hot dogs with mustard, ketchup and crispy onions, or Pie and mash with gravy (ask us about flavours), or Dirty loaded fries, cheese sauce, bacon, crispy onion, chives, or chicken curry with rice, naan bread and mango chutney…

Almost all our evening food offerings fit the casual dress code. Take a peek!
