Lamb Catering

Because sharing is caring

The word 'sharing' has been tasked to many a caterer this year, and is still proving to be an extremely popular style of wedding catering for many couples. Think big platters of mezze or tapas to start, followed by big joints of beef or lamb accompanied by an abundance of seasonal vegetables and salads. It not only gives guests more choice, but looks incredible when waiting staff bring out big boards of food. Check out Lamb Catering's Instagram feed to see some of their recent sharing platters.
