Autumn is a fantastic season for food and Britain can offer some truly mouth-watering culinary delights throughout these months. From delicious game to colourful and delectable seasonal vegetables, you can pick from an amazing selection to create your perfect autumn wedding menu for your big day. We take a look at some delicious autumnal wedding food ideas that are readily available for you to pick from, and what you should bear in mind to wow your guests with your wedding menu.
While fresh salads and cold starters might have been perfect for the summer, the autumn climate may call for something a bit more warming. Take your food inspiration from the sea and opt for something seasonal such as crab or mussels, or turn to the continent with a wonderful ravioli or risotto for your wedding menu.

The Main Course
Autumn is game season in the UK and this provides an array of options to create a wedding menu with a bit of a difference. Choose from British specialities such as venison, duck and pheasant, among many others, and combine with seasonal vegetables like parsnips and carrotts to produce unforgettable autumn wedding food.

If the colder evenings are drawing in, then a warm and comforting dessert might be the perfect choice for an autumn menu. Some of the most beloved British fruits are in their prime this season, such as apples, pears and blackberries, so sweet treats such as an apple strudel or fruit crumble served with a generous helping of custard, provide that warming, homely feel to your wedding menu. Chocolate lovers may want to opt for something rich and decadent like a hot chocolate fondant pudding or soufflé to finish off their wedding food in style.
