He converted his Land Rover Defender into a mobile oven to cook his wood-smoke flavoured ‘piping hot, mouth-watering pizza’ to bring to your guests tables in just 90 seconds! Although they are well known for their popular rustic pizzas, this truck’s oven has been adapted to cook meat and fish, so they will be more than happy to create a special menu to suit your needs.

At Couple Of Mugs you can choose from:
- Dry Hire: This option will save you some money! You can hire the van and two members of staff and you will be responsible for sourcing and supplying the drinks whilst their staff serves them on your behalf.
- Full Bar: You can contact them with a list of drinks you want and they will source them and supply them for you. Their staff will cater your guests from the van.
- Bespoke Service: If you have any ideas they are open to suggestions.They would love to hear from you!
Now you have a list of the TOP 10 UK Wedding Food and Drinks Caterers, you will need to take into account a few things before you jump into hiring any of these fantastic companies:
- Limited supplies: How many guests will there be at your wedding? As a rule of thumb a food truck will cater around 80 guests. Make sure you have more than one van supplying food if you are hosting a large wedding. Nobody wants to be queuing for food for long!
- The Vegetarian Option: Arrange for at least one or two vegetarian (and vegan if possible!) options for those guests who are into their vegetables. Speak to your chosen food supplier and make sure they can incorporate this possibility.
- When are you getting married? Although food and drink trucks are a great alternative, if you want to have one of them on site on your wedding day, make sure you are getting married during the warm season to avoid having your guests queuing for their food out in the cold.
Have you decided which of the above is your favourite? With such an amazing food choice it will not be an easy task! Do you know about any other inspirational ways to serve food at a wedding? Share them with us!
