1/ Mashed Potato Bar because who doesn’t love mashed potato? Have an array of toppings for your guests to choose from, such as bacon, cheese, sour cream and salsa and it is always fun to serve in Martini glasses, hence the “Mashtini”. Or go a step further and have a Spud Station with mashed potato, french fries and baked potato, letting your guests choose their potato of choice.

Team with a selection of champagne to entice the wedding guests. One of our favourites is a mobile oyster shucking station and a bottle sabering ceremony to add something special to the wedding day.
4/ Customisation Coffee Station because coffee is always a good idea. From espresso shots to lattes with latte art is a popular wedding trend. Brunch weddings are becoming a popular choice so integrating a customisation coffee station is a special treat for coffee lovers.
