The top UK food trucks: An alternative catering idea for your wedding day!

Food on your wedding day plays a massive role. It’s a big chunk of your budget and totally makes the experience for your guests that bit more memorable. As weddings are becoming more about celebrating your love in a unique and personal way, why not opt for providing your guests with tasty food served in the quirkiest of ways? Hiring food trucks is a wedding trend that’s gaining some serious momentum and not just if you are having a festival or vintage theme. There’s something to satisfy every taste. Plus if you don’t want the whole event to be catered by them, they make a fab addition to your reception, and a great late night snack to keep your guests fuelled up for the dance floor.

Take a look at our selection of top food trucks that will cater for your big day! Disclaimer alert: you will definitely be hungry after feasting your eyes on the pics below!

Burger and Beyond

Burgers are the ultimate street food. When it comes to burgers these guys go above and beyond. They’ve drawn inspiration from Burger joints all over the world, from London to Miami, Vegas to LA, Berlin to NYC; so they definitely know a good burger when they bite one! They may not operate out of a restaurant, but their food is definitely of restaurant quality, maybe even better.

El Kantina

This one’s for classic street food lovers because let’s face it, who doesn’t love some Mexican and Southern street food? El Kantina serve delicious fresh food inspired by traditional recipes with a twist. So prepare your taste buds for everything from tasty Tex Mex street food through to a full wedding breakfast complete with canapés and churros. Instead of having a typical sit down dinner that can last for way too long, these guys will easily and quickly feed your guests so that they can get back to enjoying the rest of the party asap. We dare you not to love their ‘Cowboy Burrito’!

Market Wraps

Market Wraps will give you a taste of Yorkshire and a menu which consists of quality slow cooked and smoked meats served with the freshest local ingredients. And they don’t just do wraps so you can pick and choose what you want to include in your wedding menu. We absolutely love their designer vintage look food trailer, which will easily incorporate into any wedding theme. Their toasted sourdough with avocado radish and watercress canapés are simply to die for!

Taco Truck

Freshly pressed Mexican soft corn tacos at their authentic best. This is the perfect food for wedding parties. Our tacos have been thoroughly loved at many weddings, house parties and company locations, so much so that they have decided to specialise in this area of catering. They make their recipes mildly spiced with the option of our home made fiery chilli sauce for those who like it HOT! All served from our very cute Citroen H fire engine. Do check out their more extensive seasonal recipe list and full details!
