With the weather turning chillier, guests would only be too happy to be greeted by a fountain of warm chocolate (bet they’d love it in summer too!). Guests will be queuing to dunk some marshmallows or fruit skewers in to the river of chocolate and it would make a great statement piece at the reception too. Nom. If you’re looking for a chocolate fountain for your own Big Day, you can hire one from Carolyn’s Sweets.

We LOVE the idea of having an ice cream van pull up at your ceremony to treat guests to a 99 or scoop of their fave. It’s also a yummy dessert option for summer weddings! There are several companies that offer an ice cream service from bikes and carts to nostalgic ice cream vans. They include JG’s Ice Cream, Smith’s Ice Cream Vans and Carolyn’s Sweets.
