Our approach

Our approach to catering for your wedding in Herts is simple: whatever you need we can supply. Given the deep concerns many Hertfordshire couples have about wedding costs we understand you want to budget effectively. Our approach to Wedding Catering allows you to get as much as you need from one source to help keep your costs down. And most importantly enjoying your Wedding Day celebrations.

Gina is on hand to help you with all the aspects of planning your wedding. As an experienced events director Gina will take you through the steps from day one right up to your wedding day so that all the vital details are covered.

Selecting your menu will be a priority. You have the choice to select one of our standard menus. Or create a customised, themed meal in keeping with the style of your wedding. It will also help if we are aware of any special dietary requirements of your guests.

Gina will also offer you some assistance in the planning of the day itself. Sometimes this is overlooked. But we have the Arens & Heriot Wedding Day Planner for you to use as you wish.

Our Herts Wedding Catering Service

Our positioning to the county of Herts means we can organise just about everything for your Wedding. Where necessary we bring tables, chairs, decorations, crockery, cutlery and glassware. And of course we bring those essential elements of any wedding caterer, our professional staff, AND the menu of your choice. With great flexibility we can set-up at any venue you have chosen – assuming all practical considerations have been accounted for.

Taking account of the preparation and set-up time alone for any wedding banquet or breakfast you may find our services a great relief.

With a no corkage policy this means that if you do decide to buy your own wine we will serve it to you for free. Alternatively our own extensive wine cellar does offer keen pricing for wedding day drinks. And it comes to you rather than you having to go and buy it.

Complete Wedding Catering Packages

We have created an example selection of wedding catering packages to help in the planning of your Hertfordshire wedding. These packages can accommodate 40 or more guests and include everything you will need for the event: canapés & drinks, a 3 course meal with wine, drinks for the toast and an evening buffet.

There are 4 options available, with the ability to upgrade and change what is on offer. Please take a look at our Hertfordhire wedding catering packages. From experience we know that they do work really well.
