Q. We want a showstopping big-day bake to wow our guests. Do you have any suggestions?
A. Sarah Churchill says: Why not go all-out to impress your guests with a dessert table – an artistic display of sweet treats, all decorated to match your wedding palette and theme? Treat your loved ones to delicious royal-iced biscuits, wonderfully light macarons, chocolate-covered cakesicles, buttercream-topped cupcakes, fluffy meringues, mini morsels of cake pops, sweet lollies, chocolate-dipped marshmallows and even miniature pots of flavoured jellies. Taking centre stage will be your wonderful wedding cake, making it the focal point of your wedding reception.

Q. We're having a festival-style tipi wedding. What catering would suit this?
A. Naomi Coombes says: We'd suggest something simple, tasty and easy to eat – all served from a food stall. Festival-style service allows for more relaxed timings; the stand can be open for a couple of hours, with guests collecting their meal at their leisure. Plus, with no need to clear away plates, it saves you precious time so you can move on to the next part of your day.
We'd recommend a couple of stalls: one for the main course and one for dessert, such as an ice cream bicycle. Our two catering options, Thali and Pieminister, both complement this style of wedding very well. The pies are served in eco-friendly boxes with mash, minted mushy peas and gravy. Alternatively, Thali dishes have a choice of curry, rice and toppings. Guests just need to collect their food and wooden cutlery, then dig in! It's super-satisfying, eco- and budget-friendly and stress-free!
