African Wedding Food Menu Ideas

You don’t have to travel to Africa to bring some African sunshine to your wedding. Style with exotic animal prints, make a statement using bold colour contrasts in the ceremony, stationery and reception decor, and add some thoughtful detailing using colourful African beadwork around the food presentation.

Colour palettes might include black, browns and burnished golds, radiant orange with pinks and purples, and fabrics a mix of silks, natural cottons and organza. Set to a sophisticated African beat and serve with flavoursome bites. Eat Jollof London, a specialist in African event catering, explores some of your options, when it comes to creating a West African and Caribbean menu for your African gay wedding celebrations.
