Vegan and Vegetarian Wedding Menus

Thinking of a vegetarian or vegan wedding ? Read on! 

Hello everyone, and welcome back to the Priston Mill blog! After what has been a busy, and really enjoyable summer and autumn we thought it’d be great to give our lovely readers an insight into some of the trends that we've seen this season, and of course provide a little inspiration for those of you planning to get wed in the coming months.

We have noticed a a huge increase in the number of fully vegetarian and vegan weddings recently, with at least one taking place per month at Priston Mill, which is our charming countryside wedding venue, just outside of Bath. We must say we absolutely love the challenge, and the chefs are not only incredible at creating delicious plant-based menus, but they also enjoy the variety that a fully vegetarian or vegan wedding brings. 

Here at Priston Mill we have a wide selection of vegetarian and vegan options. Check out a selection of our favourites below:


Mushroom and chestnut pate with tarragon, picked cucumber and crostini

Sweet potato, spinach and carrot falafel, spiced cauliflower puree, cumin yoghurt

Sourdough bruschetta, burrata, asparagus, peas and radish


Puff pastry case of wild mushroom and asparagus spears with a lemon and chive butter sauce

Spinach pumpkin and chickpea curry with rice and winter vegetables pakoras

Beetroot, squash, lentil and kale wellington with a mushroom cream sauce


Dark chocolate torte, raspberry gel and pistachio crumb

Lemon posset, poached rhubarb, lemon and tythe shortbread

Raspberry frangipane tart with white chocolate shards and raspberry sorbet



Due to the popularity of full vegetarian and vegan weddings we have added some new delightful dishes coming to our dedicated vegetarian and vegan menu ‘To Graze’. Some that we are excited to see soon in 2023 are:


Sichuan fried cauliflower with salsa matcha and mint yoghurt

Chickpea patty with carrot purée and crispy kale

Beetroot and minted peas with charred feta


Butternut and sage soufflé with crispy sage and a pecan and apple salad

Mushroom and asparagus risotto with truffle oil *


Chocolate mousse with raspberry coulis and an almond and chocolate soil

Lemon cheesecake with blueberry gel and meringue



However, we are also seeing that more and more brides and grooms and their guests are choosing to adapt their diet to meet their personal preferences such as having a gluten free and dairy free diet. Due to the numbers of alternative ingredients being widely available to us now our wonderful chefs Martin and Rosy can adapt more and more of our dishes to meet these needs so you and your guests can have an enjoyable meal on your special day!


However, don’t just take our word for it. These are what our past brides and grooms have to say about our wonderful wedding breakfast dishes:


We were a bit nervous about how people would respond to all the food being vegan, but all the food was delicious, and we had great feedback from our guests.

A huge thanks needs to also go to the chefs for the most amazing food. We have had so many people come up to us to talk about how amazing the food was throughout the day!

The food was plentiful and extremely tasty. As 6 of us are vegan we would also like to thank the chef for the quality and deliciousness of our main courses and the sublime dessert

The venue looked beautiful and again so many of our guests have commented on how lovely the food was. Thank you also for making me feel confident with my gluten free food, which tasted amazing! 

Please may you pass our massive appreciation and thanks to the catering team too, the food was incredible from start to finish.

Everyone commented on how amazing the food was and it honestly was so delicious I wish they would do a pop-up restaurant so we could have it again! Even the vegan aubergine item we chose was adored by meat eaters and vegans alike, and my sister claims to have dreams about the potatoes

Our guests haven't stopped raving about how delicious the meal was, some even calling it the best three-course meal they've ever eaten!

ALSO so many we spoke to said the food was incredible and was the best wedding food they'd ever had! If you could pass that on to the chefs, we would be so grateful. It was so so good!


Now you’ve heard about our vegan wedding menu options, its time to think about vegan wines for the wedding breakfast and toast drinks!

Our most popular white wine which is popular amongst all our couple and is vegan friendly is the Dominio De La Fuente Organic Verdejo, Spain. But we can’t forget about those red wine lovers, the Five Ravens Pinot Noir, Romania would be the perfect match for your vegan wedding!

Now for speeches, what better drink but the Bouvet Saumur Rose Brut NV, France to finish off the wedding breakfast just before the evening entertainment and evening food!


Now onto the late-night snack to get you through all that dancing! A new addition to our 2023 ‘To Munch’ menu is


The middle eastern street food classic. Warm pittas are stuffed with falafels then served with a selection of salads and accompaniments for you and your guests to choose from.

Accompaniments to include:

Hummus, Tabbouleh Salad (bulgur wheat with herbs, tomatoes, peppers, spring onion, lemon and paprika), spiced chickpeas, pickled vegetables, fresh carrot salad, tomato and cucumber salad, feta.

Dressings to include:

Mint yogurt, citrus dressing, chipotle mayo, tzatziki, tahini dressing, chilli dressing and sriracha.

What better way to finish off the day!
