As a seasoned wedding photographer, I have photographed more than 100 weddings all over the world, but mainly in Dordogne, where I’m based. And even if Dordogne is a one of the best places to try French cuisine, not all wedding caterers are great, or even good.
As you plan your destination wedding in France, you might wonder how to choose your vendors wisely. This is why I’ve decided to put together this little article, in order to help you decide which caterer is best for your wedding in Dordogne.
Some wedding venues in Dordogne have their own catering service, which is great, but if the chateau or venue you have chosen doesn’t, you might wonder how to find the best caterer for your wedding.
I will start by warning you: caterers are booked somethimes 2 years in advance, so if you’re planning a wedding in the next 6 months, you might have a harder time finding a great caterer in Dordogne, and visiting might be one of the best options you have: some caterers are great and don’t have a website, or aren’t easy to find. Local, small villages caterers generally use local and fresh products and their menus will be delicious.
While you visit, you can also ask restaurants if they cater for events outside their establishment. This option will also offer you an emergy plan if you’re having a hard time finding a caterer for your wedding in Dordogne. It will also allow you to taste the food right away while having a nice, candlelit dinner with your fiancé!
