Best Wedding Vegan Food Ever!

We couldn’t be happier that we choose Vegan Junkies for our wedding – over and above the food (which was awesome!) they put so much effort into the making the day flow smoothly so we and the guests could focus on having the best day ever.
In particular I am omnivorous and my wife is vegan and after multiple calls with mixed caterers who mainly focused on various versions of dull salads and/or carrots for vegans we made the decision to go fully vegan (and so glad we did!). Was also exciting for my wife to finally go to a wedding where she could eat all the canapés!
In particular as the vast majority of the wedding party was non-vegan, and we’re fully vegan at home thought it was a great opportunity to showcase how awesome and delicious vegan food can be!
From the moment they booked they made everything so calm and pleasant from start to finish.
The first call they talked us through menu ideas (and all sounded fantastic) and we settled on:
Canapes: Samosas, Mini Sausage Rolls (My wife’s favourite), and Mac & Cheese Balls
Starter: Meze Sharing Platter
Main: Vegan Wellington with Vegetable
We then went for a lovely meal at their home where they cooked all the various options and a lot of empty plates later, we were more confident then ever that we’d chosen the perfect caterer.
In the build-up to the wedding the venue (which had a set of rules and regulations more complicated than an average insurance policy!) kept throwing up restrictions and new rules and at every turn Sophie and Dave handled it calmly and can’t underline what a huge help this was to lower the pre-wedding stress levels.
On the day itself despite the venue being in Somerset they assembled an absolute dream team, and you could see when Dave and Sophie were briefing the team how professional focused, and kind they were to all the team members and got them really excited about the day – all of them were excellent throughout.
For the food itself I can think of no higher praise than seeing a great swathe of people who all rolled their eyes at a ‘vegan wedding’ – happily gobbling down delicious Samosas, Sausage rolls and Mac & Cheese balls! My Dad in particular! Everyone commented on how delicious the food was throughout the day and super glad we both went fully vegan and found the wonderful vegan junkies!
I cannot recommend Sophie and Dave enough for your big day regardless of how many non-vegans are attending. If we could get married again, we’d definitely re-book them!

Lovely people and delicious food!

We wanted a simple lunch for our wedding day and Vegan Junkies were brilliant from our initial enquiry, discussing options through to preparing and delivering a delicious lunch for all of us, including our gluten-free guests.

Perfect catering for our fully vegan wedding!

Dave and Sophie catered for our wedding in August this year and we couldn't be happier with how amazing the food was for our special day! After being let down by another caterer a few months prior, we were so happy to have found Vegan Junkies, and from day 1 they were so helpful, thoughtful and did everything they could to make the catering a success at our wedding. With us both being vegan, we wanted to use this opportunity to show our (nearly all non-vegan) guests how amazing vegan food can be, and Dave and Sophie did not let us down at all - we had so many amazing comments on the food afterwards, with many people having their opinions changed on vegan food! Vegan Junkies catered for our wedding breakfast, evening food (pizzas!) and breakfast the next day - it was all perfect.

We met with them both online and in-person to put together a menu that we were really excited about, and from then on we did not ever need to worry about the catering as Vegan Junkies took all the stress away from us. For anyone looking for incredible vegan catering for any event, I would absolutely recommend Vegan Junkies - their passion for what they do shines through and it was so lovely for us to meet with two people who share our values for good food and veganism!

Simply the best

What can I say about Sophie & Dave at Vegan Junkies?
Quite honestly they are simply the best!
They were the absolute perfect choice for our wedding and all of our guests (most of whom are not vegan at all) raved about the food!!
Not only was the food fantastic, Sophie & Dave and the loveliest of people. From emails, to our first zoom call to finally meeting on the day, they could not have been more accommodating to our vision and needs.
We would not hesitate to recommend them and we will definitely be considering them again for future events!
Thank you so much Vegan Junkies for making our wedding so special! :)

Perfect food and lovely people!

Booking Vegan Junkies to cater our wedding was easily one of the best decisions we made. Sophie and Dave took the time to get to know our tastes and personality before expertly crafting the perfect meal, both for the wedding breakfast, and street-style evening food. They invited us to a tasting at their lovely home and we were treated as if we were old friends in every step of the process. The team they brought with them to the wedding were fantastic and alongside providing excellent food and service, they helped out wherever they could during the day, bringing a calm, confident presence whilst adapting to changing time-schedules seamlessly. Months down the line, we still get comments from friends and family about how incredibly tasty every single dish was! Thank you both so much for your instrumental contribution to our fantastic wedding - we would recommend Vegan Junkies to cater any event in a heartbeat!

Fab vegan food!

We booked Sophie and Dave for our wedding of 100 guests and they were fantastic in every aspect. They catered to all the guests needs, including the ones with obscure allergies! They worked very hard to make sure that all of the food was served timely and hot, even though there were a large number of guests. The food was delicious and we got lots of positive feedback from even our non-vegan guests! We would definitely recommend them. If you book them for canapés then the mac and cheese balls are to die for! Sophie and Dave also provided the bar at our wedding with two lovely staff members and all the guests loved it. We got any pictures of the food as we were too busy enjoying it, but we have got a picture of a happy Dave!

Amazing service and food!

Sophie and Dave were brilliant from the moment we contacted them. We'd had problems with our first caterer and had to cancel so booked with Vegan Junkies with relatively short notice. Their communication from first contact was brilliant, very helpful and quick to respond.

Our venue had no catering equipment and could not even plug in to the mains but this didn't faze Sophie and Dave and they dealt with all the problems without us having to worry.

The food itself was unreal. We had canapés for the drinks reception, pie and mash for the wedding breakfast and pizza for the evening food. Our guests loved the food with many saying they couldn't believe vegan good could be so good. The star of the show was the mac and cheese balls which were served at the evening reception!

We would highly recommend Vegan Junkies for amazing food but also for Sophie and Dave who are wonderful.

Delicious food, wonderful company

We cannot recommend Vegan Junkies enough. They were brilliant throughout the process and helped create a menu that suited us perfectly. The food impressed vegans and non-vegans alike, and the Indian-themed mains, trio of desserts and evening Mexican-themed food all went down a treat. Thank you Sophie and Dave for catering for all the intolerances (and picky eaters!), creating such wonderful food and making the whole process so easy.

Can’t recommend enough!

Vegan Junkies catered our wedding in August and we can’t recommend them enough!

From start to finish everything was perfect - communication was amazing, Dave and Sophie were a pleasure to work with, really friendly and professional! They made everything really easy, and went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly on the day.

Of course, the food was absolutely amazing. Myself and my husband are both vegan so we wanted a fully vegan catering, and we were involved at every stage to design our perfect menu. During the planning, we were also invited to Dave and Sophie’s home for a menu tasting, which was one of the highlights of our wedding planning!
We got so many comments from everyone attending (vegan or not) about how good the food was! It was so important for us to have amazing food on our wedding day and Dave and Sophie definitely didn’t disappoint!

Again, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for catering - vegan or not!

Best Wedding Caterers and lovely people!

Where do I start… Sophie and Dave were fantastic from start to finish. From a lovely evening tasting the menu at their home, to countless emails helping to sort out every little detail, we couldn’t have asked for better caterers than Sophie and Dave. And then there was the food.. the canapés were incredible (shout out to the Mac & cheese balls!) and every guest said it was the best wedding food they had ever had. We found it difficult at first to find 100% vegan caterers so, for anyone looking, book them now, you will not be disappointed! Thanks guys, hoping we see you at another wedding soon!

Made our wedding perfect!

We interviewed a few caterers for our wedding and no one quite fitted until we met Sophie & Dave. They got it straight away and the menu was nailed right away. We wanted relaxed, beautiful and delicious food showing off what vegan can be. That’s exactly what our guests were treated too. Sophie & Dave were incredible people too and sorted any small detail needed. Flap free and always smiling. A delight to deal with. Thank you both for such special food 🥰

Don't hesitate, just book them :)

We were going to have someone local do the food at our wedding but relatively last minute (by wedding standards), they said they wouldn't be able to do it. One thing we didn't want to budge on was that whoever made our food, should be a vegan business and if they could make Thai/Vietnamese style food, that would be a major plus. At this point, I came across Vegan Junkies and I'm so glad I did. From start to finish, Sophie and Dave were friendly, helpful, adaptable and, most importantly, great at what they do.

We didn't have to worry about anything on the day, their staff members were lovely, the food was great and we got lots of compliments from guests, even non-vegan ones!

We highly recommend Vegan Junkies to anyone who wants to plate up a cruelty free, flavourful meal for their special day!

Amazing vegan food

Sophie and Dave are the best! They are so friendly and have been a dream to work with. The food was amazing on the day, the mushroom wellington and cauliflower bites was out of this world!!! We also had a lot of guests saying they really loved the food even though they weren't vegan, which is always great to hear :D

10/10 Vegan Wedding Breakfast

We were absolutely delighted to have Vegan Junkies as our Wedding Breakfast Caterers. We are both vegans and had decided we wanted to have an all vegan wedding, we were struggling to find something that would inspire both vegans and meat-eaters (ie not just falafel/salad) VJ were brilliant for this! We selected the menu which had Burritos, Loaded Nachos and Rice Bowl with two different fillings options served with an array of toppings. Sophie & Dave offered menu suggestions which accommodated our budget, they were also extremely helpful with answering our questions and working with our venue. We cannot recommend them enough. P.S. Lots of hesitant carnivores went up for seconds!!

Couldn't Have Gotten Better!

Crikey, where to start with this amazing bunch of people...

Well, the start may be best. We happened upon Vegan Junkies online a year prior to our wedding and it was apparent from that first Zoom meeting that we had found our ideal caterers. They totally got what we were going for, our tasting session was entertaining and delicious in equal measure; as a bonus they only went and offered a bar service too!

On the lead-up to our big day they were nothing but helpful and supportive, keeping us updated and making sure everything was as it should be. They were happy to cater for allergies and intolerances, so everyone could enjoy their delicious cuisine. They are also very transparent about costs and capabilities, plus are just a lovely pair of people, really. You can tell they are incredibly passionate about what they do.

Come the wedding day itself, they were, in a word, incredible. Everything had been efficiently prepared, the canapés were a massive hit (especially their godly Mac and Cheeze balls!) and the main meals (we went for their Bangin’ Bean Chili and Drunk Jack options) blew even the vegan-apprehensive of guests away. The evening buffet was also splendid; their pizzas were quite something to behold!

As for the bar service, it was flawless. The bar staff were efficient, friendly and helpful, with drinks flowing long into the night and keeping many guests dancefloor-bound until the small hours. They looked to be enjoying our wedding as much as the guests, whilst still keeping it professional of course.

In summary, we’d highly recommend Sophie, Dave and the team at Vegan Junkies for weddings, parties, festivals and anywhere that’ll have them! If you want an unforgettable experience, helmed by a pair of amazing food-enthusiasts, then we honestly cannot think of anyone better suited.

Sam and Danielle
