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.

  • "Lucie Mussett"

    Vamos Paella catered our wedding in Kent in September, and were totally fabulous. We had a lovely tasting meal at Melissa's house and instantly felt that she and her business partner were going to be calm, capable, warm and provide us with a wonderful feast They were really flexible as we figured out what we wanted, dealt with dietary requirements brilliantly (no sad second-rate veggie/vegan options here!) and did an utterly heroic job on the day when severe weather meant all plans went totally out of the window. It was very wet and windy, we were horribly behind schedule, and had to change plans (including location) at the last second, but they took it all in their stride, and faultlessly served truly delicious canapes and paella to 130 of us, staying later than planned to accommodate our changed timings, and generally being super supportive and cheerful even in the eye of the (metaphorical and literal) storm. People loved the food, the service, and the day. I'd recommend Melissa and team 100%.

  • "We used Vamos Paella for our Wedding"
    Laura & Sam McCarthy on 28 January 2019

    We used Vamos Paella for our Wedding. Everything was absolutely perfect. Melissa and her team made everybody feel relaxed and comfortable. They made the whole day very easy for us. The food was exceptional, our friends and family are still talking about, most saying it was the best food they had even eaten at a wedding. Some even say it was the best Paella they have ever eaten! I think we would have to agree with. We honestly could not recommend Vamos Paella enough!

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.
