We chat to three quality Artisan mobile wedding caterers, to discuss logistics and how their treats can make your wedding day extra special.

Polly’s Parlour Vintage Ice cream van ‘Florence’

Florence is a multi award winning vintage VW ice cream van, serving only the finest hand scooped traditional ice cream & mouth watering sorbets. She looks stunning, hand-painted in pink and brown candy stripes with traditional sign writing whilst draped in bunting, your guests won’t believe their eyes!

What do I need to ask my venue prior and what do I need to do in terms of logistics on the day?

Obviously you will need to confirm with your venue that they are open to having outside catering providers on site, before you book them or us. Prior to the day we will need to know where you want ‘Florence’ sited, preferably somewhere with easy access from the main reception room/marquee/yurt etc and in full view of your guests.

Apart from that, on the day we will drive directly into your venue, open the hatch, and start spreading the love….& ice cream!!

Do you offer bespoke packages?

Every booking for us is classed as bespoke. We take into consideration your guest numbers, location, timings and if you’re looking for single and/or double scoop serving options as well as your requirements for chocolate flakes and messaged or logoed wafers. We love the details, as no two weddings are the same.
How do you make a wedding day extra special?

When you hire ‘Florence’ you are not just hiring an incredible hand scooped luxury vintage ice cream van, you are also getting a piece of classic iconic history, something that you will not see again, a moment in time for you and your guests to savour forever.

We all have fond memories of vintage ice cream vans, the excitement of running to get an ice cream just before they pull off  but now there is no need to run….Polly’s Parlour will be ready & waiting, you can have as many ice creams as you like. Florence makes all your wishes have come true!

Mobile Gin bar from The Little Gin Company

Masters of the mobile gin bar, The Little Gin Company can give your wedding celebration a unique twist with the option of their retro-style horse box bar or pop-up gin bar. Gin lover’s Emma & Nicola serve a selection of locally distilled and speciality gins as well as their own ‘Trailer Made Gin’, they tell us more about their mobile bar…

What do I need to ask my venue prior and what do I need to do in terms of logistics on the day?

The main thing to ask your venue is whether they allow an external drinks provider and if they do whether there are any additional charges involved like corkage. When this is confirmed then we are good to go! We will always discuss the details with the venue and can provide any required insurance or licencing documentation they require.

Our beautiful converted horse trailer is towed into its serving position so flat driving access to postion the bar does need to be considered. Alternatively, if access is restricted our free standing wedding bar can be constructed on site.

We go through all the details of your day ahead of time, finalising everything including the drinks menu and serving times. There won’t be anything you need to do on the day other than enjoy a large gin!

If you have prepaid for drinks these will be provided to guests in the agreed manor (e.g. a certain number or in exchange for tokens) or we can run as a cash and card bar for guests to purchase their own drinks.

Do you offer bespoke packages?

Absolutely! Every package we provide is bespoke to the couple, just like the couple and the wedding. We have some suggested packages as a starting point but will tailor our offering to suit your requirements. We can offer some recommendations as a starting point.

How do you make a wedding day extra special?

For us it is about going that extra step to make things perfect for you, bringing excitement and enjoyment to the whole process; from enquiry through to the big day. We put ourselves in your shoes, we imagine it is our special day and how we would want things to go then apply that to what we do best – gin!

We feel very privileged to be a part of so many couples wedding days – we love it!

Whilst gin is our thing, we also specialise in rum and we can broaden our drinks offering to include prosecco, wine, bottled lager/cider for weddings.

Crêpe de la Crêpe’s mobile crêperie and waffle bar

Crêpe de la Crêpe is a vintage horse box which has been lovingly converted into a mobile crêperie, serving freshly cooked, sweet & savoury French crêpes, in addition to freshly baked sweet Belgian waffles with a wide range of toppings. Perfect to satisfy the sweetest tooth of your wedding guests.

Emmilene fills us in on how her delicious treats bring delight…

What do I need to ask my venue prior and what do I need to do in terms of logistics on the day?

It is important to double check with your venue that you can use your own outside caterers, it’s always best to check first in case you get disappointed. Another key factor is to check if there are any height or width restrictions, as our vintage horsebox will need enough space to manoeuvre into that perfect spot.

We’re very discreet when arriving and setting up, but I would just make sure that none of your guests block the entrance to where we will need to set-up. Other than that, we’re pretty much sorted as we’re fully self-sufficient.

Do you offer bespoke packages?

Yes, we offer bespoke packages, from being flexible with our timings to suit our customers’ requirements to offering something a little bit different to our already large menu, or catering for any special dietary requirements, including gluten free, diary free, vegetarian or vegan.

We can also add a hot drinks menu, should your guests like a warming beverage come the end of the evening.

How do you make a wedding day extra special?

We always go the extra mile to make our clients wedding day extra special, right down to the smallest detail. We give our couples the opportunity to let us know if they have any specific requirements prior to their big day, so that we can get this arranged and in place well in advance. We love to interact with your guests, joining in with photographs and adapting our topping suggestions ‘on the hoof’, should you be feeling a little adventurous.

When we see our customers beaming with joy, then we know we’ve done a great job!

Be creative and personalise your day with an Artisan caterer, to give you and your guests treats that will bring back the excitement of their childhood, the charm of a speciality drink or the indulgence of a mouth watering desert.
