they thought we were monsters for depriving our guests of a bit of dry salmon or some overcooked chicken.

The reaction comes following a report in the Guardian detailing a couple who last year found it extremely difficult to find caterers that would provide a completely meat-free menu for their wedding, many stating they could not cater for ‘special diets’ with their food options.

Based in Edinburgh, journalist Hilary Wardle and her partner didn’t foresee that there would be any issues trying to find a catering company or venue that would accommodate their vegetarian and vegan diets. They had never considered having meat at their wedding, and the reactions – often flat-out refusals – from companies that they approached left them disheartened as they looked to get the final details for the ceremony set in stone.

Wardle writes that “either they had an extremely low opinion of their ability to make vegetables taste nice or they thought we were monsters for depriving our guests of a bit of dry salmon or some overcooked chicken. I contacted a rugby club to ask if they would let us use our favourite Indian vegetarian restaurant. The convenor sent an email that just said ‘NO’.”

A spokesperson for Event Oracle, market leaders in event planning and catering, has released a statement following the article: “It is quite shocking that even in this day and age, couples are still finding it difficult to find companies that are willing to cater for even the most basic of dietary requirements.

“It is hugely important on being able to provide a diverse range of food in order to guarantee everybody is able to enjoy their day with the food they love. Vegetarian food should not be considered an oddity or a luxury, but a necessity for every company to be able to provide.”

“Here at EventOracle, we pride ourselves on being able to provide each and every one of our clients with the wedding or event they deserve – ensuring that vegetarian or vegan options are available where necessary is something of a prerequisite with all of our menu choices.”
