About Vamos Paella

Vamos Paella was founded in 2011 by Melissa after she discovered her love for cooking Spanish cuisine when living in Spain. Vamos Paella offers traditional, authentic paella, tapas and desserts and can cater for weddings of any size, whether that’s for 50 or 800 guests. Your guests can watch as the paella is cooked in front of them in huge pans.

Vamos Paella pride themselves in using ingredients of the highest quality to create delicious dishes. All their fresh ingredients are locally and ethically sourced and their rice, paprika and olive oil are all specially chosen to ensure that their dishes are bursting with flavour. They offer a wide variety of paellas including for vegetarians and pescatarians, meaning there is something to keep everyone happy.

Vamos Paella offer five wedding menus to choose from and offer a tasting so that you can try their range of dishes before the wedding day.

  • "The food was excellent"
    Esther McElhatton on 20 February 2019

    Melissa catered for 120 guests at our New Year’s Eve wedding. The food was excellent we had three paellas, salads and a cheese tower and everybody is still raving about them! Melissa was very helpful with all aspects of wedding planning and we had a wonderful relaxed wedding day.

  • "The food was delicious"
    Helen and Lori on 20 February 2019

    Melissa and her team catered for our wedding in West Sussex a couple of weeks ago and they were absolutely fantastic. The food was delicious and I have lost count of the number of compliments we received, both during the wedding and in the days that followed. From the canapes and fizz, to the tapas, paella and evening catering, everything was fresh, authentically Spanish and of an extremely high quality. Melissa was an absolute pro who really understood how weddings work, offering advice and adapting the catering to suit our needs. As a result the whole day flowed beautifully and the event was staffed by an extremely friendly, helpful team. My only regret is that I didn't eat more, but sadly my dress wouldn't allow it!

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of events do you cater for?

We cater for all kinds of events: wedding breakfasts, evening wedding receptions, post-wedding parties, garden parties, corporate events, special birthday parties or anniversaries, engagement parties, christenings, product launches, charity galas and fund-raisers.

Do you have a maximum or minimum guest count?

We tend to cater for larger events and can cater for up to 500 people in one sitting and more on a rolling basis. The minimum we cater for is 30-50 people as we have a minimum spend of £900 plus VAT on catering costs.

What do you bring with you?

We will bring a gazebo (or two if it's a large wedding) to cook under (3m x 3m) and a couple of tables to serve from. We also provide biodegradable food boxes, wooden forks and napkins free of charge - great for evening wedding food or weddings with a festival-style feel.

What do you need from us, such as running water or electricity or lighting?

We need a minimum of 4 square metres to set up our gazebo. This needs to be level ground otherwise the paella doesn't cook evenly. Areas that are sheltered from the wind are best. We cook our paellas on portable gas burners, which run off bottled propane gas, so we're completely self-sufficient and don't need electricity. If we're cooking in the dark, we'll bring our own battery-powered lighting. Access to running water is useful, but not a must. If there isn't any, just let us know and we'll bring our own.

Can I try some of your paella and tapas?

We offer tastings for weddings where you can try some of our signature tapas and paellas, washed down with a glass of chilled white Rioja. We host these at our home in Brighton on Sundays and weekday evenings. You can bring up to four people with you and it's a great chance to try the food you're thinking of having and to talk through your wedding plans. We charge £75 for this service. However, if you decide to book us, we refund this on your final invoice.
