6 fool proof tips for serving up a delectable food feast at your wedding

We get the low-down!

Think back to any stunning wedding you’ve enjoyed, and what do you remember the most? Perhaps it’s the bride, as she walked down the aisle, or the flower girls dancing as confetti sprinkled to the ground; or, even, the glorious sunny day and the warmth of the sun as you milled about at the venue. But, there’s one thing you’re never likely to forget: the food.

Today, finding a caterer with imagination, who uses seasonal, fresh ingredients, and presented in perfect quantities may not be too hard but finding one with the heritage of Camilleri Caterers – and a proven track record – can be tough. We speak to Alexia Camilleri, from the well-known brand, to find out what makes their wedding menus so delectable!

1. Proven experience

“Over its 36 years, Camilleri Catering’s reputation has grown mostly from recommendations of satisfied customers. Today, when assisting young couples to plan their wedding reception, we are often greeted with ‘Camilleri catered for my parents’ wedding’. This is very rewarding to hear and shows that our reputation is built on successfully having delivered memorable weddings and gained past clients’ trust,” Alexia tells us.

2. Imagination flavours every bite

“Traditions, styles and expectations have evolved over the years, yet we believe that our professional guidance coupled with taking a personalised approach has helped us in delivering elegant events based on our clients’ wishes. Offering unique ideas, genuine and delicious food, gorgeous settings, efficient service and good value are all important. Orchestrating any successful event is demanding, yet from casual to formal, standing to seated, we can effectively bring together all the elements necessary for an unforgettable occasion, leaving the special couple to relax on the day knowing that everything will run smoothly,” Alexia continues.

3. Fresh, seasonal fare which is picture perfect!

“Celebrating the couples’ union is paramount. Yet, at any event, food is the heart of the matter,” Alexia explains. “When creating menu recommendations, our chefs focus not only on taste, but extend attention to texture, colour as well as clean, imaginative presentations. Menus include the finest and freshest ingredients, always making the best use of seasonal products. The culinary team takes great pride in providing a quality product prepared fresh in our kitchen.”.

4. Bespoke menus

For clients, however, knowing where to start is the hardest part. “Planning a wedding is incredibly exciting but it can also become an overwhelming experience. Our experienced team is happy to share a number of menus as a guide to help couples discover the possibilities and provide inspiration. We are truly passionate about providing a great service, and so we are also happy to help create bespoke menus suited to the occasion. All the necessary support is offered to help couples create their dream wedding and make sure that the food is something their guests will remember for a long time to come,” Alexia asserts.

5. Professional staff for every venue

“Being an outside caterer means we are able to provide and deliver our quality services in an array of locations, be it in our exclusive venue, Olive Gardens, situated just below the Mdina bastions, or a number of other venues as well as private residences,” says Alexia. “Undeniably, professional service is a must. Delivered by trained, polite and smartly groomed staff, our utmost is given for our service to compliment the superb food we offer. The experience of our service crew ensures the final touch of a high calibre caterer.”

6. Placing you at the heart of everything!

“At Camilleri, we keep clients at the forefront of what we do. Nothing gives us greater pleasure than knowing that we’ve helped turn the couple’s dreams into a reality on their special day!”

7. But, what do couples say were the highlights for them?

“We’ve had so many people commenting on how amazing the food and service was!”, Amanda and Matthew tell And, it seems they weren’t the only ones to praise the attention to detail in the personalised service. “Camilleri caterers did a wonderful job for us. We had heard about their spectacular service, before actually organising our wedding,” Roberta and Vincent also tell us.
