Why Street Food and Weddings are a match made in heaven!

Whether you’re having a traditional church ceremony or something a bit more unconventional, street food could be the unexpected star of your big day…

What’s a wedding without mountains and mountains of food? Not much of a wedding at all in our book. Sending your guests to bed hungry is a sure-fire way to get folk talking for all the wrong reasons.

But what you serve up to your guests is a big – nay, colossal - decision to make. According to stats jockeys at wedding website Bridebook, in 2018 the average spend on food for a wedding came in at £5,862. It’s little wonder then, that many brides and grooms to be spend a huge amount of time traversing the country checking out the options and sampling the wares of venues and roaming caterers for hire.

But what if there was an alternative to the traditional fusty five-course? One which didn’t require hours of agonising table planning and having to work around Aunties Brenda and Pauline’s long-simmering and unresolved beef, or the potential awkwardness of putting those two uni mates whose relationship ended messily with their new partners? An option which was more suited to mingling and conversation, and importantly, potentially cheaper too?

Enter street food for weddings. Whether you’re serving it as an alternative to your sit-down meal or as delicious chaser to the day’s events – it’s an ideal option for something to soak up to booze and provide vital sustenance after the exertions of the evening disco – street food can be the vital x-factor which elevates your days from ‘great’ to ‘absolutely fantastic’. And, all things considered, it’s infinitely more Instagrammable than shoulder of lamb with seasonal mixed veg and gravy.

It’s easier than you might think to have your dream street food wedding, too. The team at Street Food Warehouse have the nous, contacts and experience that comes with running rapturously received and smooth-running food festivals across the country, year-in, year-out, with a stellar cast of hand-picked vendors that can make your event pop. You might not realise they also offer street food for hire too.

What’s more, Street Food Warehouse can tailor a bespoke offering to your budget, based at a cost per head. So whether you’re after a trader or two, or a fleet of vendors, or even a marquee set-up, we can bring food from all four corners of the globe to your big day and manage it for you, meaning that you can get on with the important business of saying ‘I do’, and having the party to end all parties. So whether it’s tasty tacos (we highly rate The Bearded Taco on this one - see their pic at the top!) or flame-baked pizza; to mouthwatering burgers and slow-roasted local meats or next-level vegan cuisine, we’ve got you covered. We can even hook you up with something sweet for later which will knock dry, marzipan-encrusted wedding cake well into the long grass.

So, for a unique wedding day feast with bells on, drop Street Food Warehouse a line today with your requirements and we’ll tailor you a package that you’ll be sure to love…

Fusion Students

We recently had the pleasure of curating the street food lineup for the opening parties of two incredible brand-new student halls in Cardiff and Hatfield, both run by Fusion Students.

The first of the two, the Zenith, hosted some of our staple traders here at The Warehouse.

That Street Food served up their Mexican madness with the usual friendly smile, and in their words “the students got treated to their first taste of Cardiff Street Food and South Wales monsoons all in one day!”

Tram Dogs also stopped off at the Zenith to serve up their heavenly hotdogs to the students of Cardiff.

Dios Mio Churros then served up dessert for the students, traditional Spanish churros coated in cinnamon sugar. What more could you need?

The following weekend, Luna in Hatfield welcomed The Yeerologist to their opening party. They served up some mouthwatering Greek souvlaki alongside Crepes Zone, who provided the students of Hertfordshire with sweet and savoury French delicacies in their mega colourful van!

So, if you’re looking for street food at your event, head over to www.streetfoodwarehouse.co.uk/hire-us to enquire - or give us a call on 02920 340587 for a street food chat!



If you attended our bustling calendar of street food events this summer, you'll no doubt have clocked (and probably headed directly for) the lovely, shiny bar we had with us. Provided all summer long by our sister company, Pop Up Bar Hire Co., thousands upon thousands of pints, Pimm's and other alcoholic delights were served from the bars alongside the brilliant street food traders. Proving to be the cherry atop our highly successful summer calendar, we thought we'd dig a little deeper into what these guys do - and how you can get a hold of 'em for your events, too.

From Swansea to Dorset, via Sussex, Pembrokeshire and more, Pop Up Bar Hire were with us every step of the way to pour the Amstel's and shake the Mojitos. Our partners since the beginning of the Street Food Warehouse story, we're absolutely buzzing to have them on board with us for our even bigger summer of street food in 2020, for which we've already begun the build-up process. Vendors are applying, our staff are picking out the best of the best, and some brand new locations are in the pipeline.

Pop Up Bar Hire had some major partnerships this summer. Across our Welsh-based street food festivals, Tenby Harbwr Brewery were on board with a selection of their famously delicious ales. Meanwhile, our full calendar saw Kona bring the summer vibes with their Hawaiian beers, Scandanavian brewers Lervig lit things up with their House Party ale, Barti Rum kept the Mojitos tasting of Wales, and Cygnet Gin was getting poured out faster than you can neck a G&T. Phew... 2020 is going to be something else!

But what else do Pop Up Bar Hire offer? Whilst they've got a busy summer aboard the Street Food Warehouse summer tour, they're always available for hire at events of all shapes and sizes throughout the year. With a multitude of  fully-serviced bars and a host of fantastic staff on hand to pour the pints, they're a serious bargain whatever your request. Why do you think we have them at all of our events?!

Equipped and experienced in serving weddings, big ol' corporate functions, cute-as-heck birthday parties (see image above) and any other soirée you can imagine, we credit the Pop Up Bar Hire with being the most wonderfully reliable source of fun and good times, whilst also providing incredible service at quality rates. So if you're after something a little bit diff' at your event over the autumn/winter period and beyond, get yourselves in touch with them here.
