A Buffet Meal is the most popular of all for most types of Weddings. The guests can go up and help themselves to a wide array of menu items and take as much (or as little) of each item as they like.  Elizabethan Catering Services Ltd., has a very successful formula of menu items, and can advise you on the best choices.

Remember, we are working together to create your perfect event. You choose what you want!

However, you are the customer, and you might like to make the choices more extensive, and more “upscale”.  We would prefer not to assume what you would like, but just advise on what has worked well in the past. Feel free to create your own menu from suggestions listed below. We have broken each menu down for you to see and ask for a quote for each specific menu, and have provided suggestions for you which we are happy to change for you.

All of our buffet meals are supplied with the very best service equipment from Germany, and are sure to impress your guests.  If there is a menu item not listed, please let us know and we will make it for you.  All of our menu items are made on site using the freshest of ingredients, and from recipes we have generated from over 25 years of experience. “We thrive on DELICIOUS, CUSTOMIZED MENUS!”

PLEASE NOTE: Included with all Buffet Meal Pricings: China, Cutlery, Wine Glass, Water Glass, Water Carafes, Table Linens, Skirted Buffet Tables, Service Staff and Serving Equipment. No hidden costs; No hidden extras!
