Q. We want to treat our guests to a menu they won't forget. Do you have any suggestions for food and drink with the added wow-factor?
A. Raef Hamz says: At Leila Catering mix mezze is the dish choice that really has the wow-factor and is popular with most couples for their wedding banquet. There's an extraordinary variety of exciting tastes, colours and textures with this dish and it presents really beautifully for your wedding photos. Guests usually receive a selection of hummus, baba ghanouj, fattoush salad, falafel, cheese roll and batata darna, making for a delicious, shareable meal that'll get your guests talking and bring everyone together in a combination of brilliant flavours.
Middle Eastern cuisine's often forgotten by so many people as a catering option for events. We all love a good greasy kebab on a night out, so why not delve further into the cuisine? The mix mezze allows those who aren't so familiar with the cuisine to explore the incredible dishes and flavours that Lebanese food has to offer. You can't really go wrong when there's such a wide variety of options in this one dish – everyone will find something they enjoy! And the best part is that it's all Halal, so accessible to everyone.

Q. Following the last 18months, how has the wedding industry changed?
A. Eliza Marks says: As always, the attention to detail is key, especially when it comes to smaller, micro weddings. We've found that our wedding couples have more budget to play with when planning a smaller scale wedding allowing for beautiful, personalised touches for table styling and stationery. Think statement velvet bows with embroidered guest initials for place names, personalised guest poems, handmade side plates with the wedding crest or stunning linen, plates and glassware which really add the wow factor.
