Bring a festival flavour to your wedding menu with these scrumptious party bites...

Dreaming of a wedding that's more Glasto than glam? Fantasising about celebrations played out against a hazy summer light, a seductively relaxed vibe and an eclectic soundtrack of your favourite tunes? Festival fever has gripped the nation in recent years and the phenomenon has ushered a new wave of festival-inspired weddings for music-loving brides and grooms keen to sprinkle their celebration with uplifting music, welly boots, hay bales - and delicious food.

The rise of the festival wedding ties in with the growing trend for the weekend wedding. Continuing the celebrations the next day allows for quality time with all those people you shared a few fleeting words with amidst the whirlwind of the wedding day itself.

But all those hungry party animals need feeding. Whether it's for the evening buffet or the next day party, serve up some delectable takes on classic festival fare. We're talking the kind of food that can be taken outdoors and munched on a hay bale as the sun goes down. Think tortilla wraps oozing with sweet chilli-lathered meat, pizzas topped with Cornish cheeses and doughnuts sprinkled with sugar and topped with jam.

Beyond these heady flavours, festival food serves up a fabulous opportunity to get creative with your packaging. It might be fish goujons wrapped in bespoke wedding newspaper or fried chicken served in boxes with fun couple photos plastered inside the lids. Or what about pizza boxes decorated with tailor-made illustrations?

Embrace a free-spirited and flavoursome vibe with these moreish menu ideas devised by the team at The Round Kitchen.
