Our Favourite Wedding Canapés for 2022

Canapés are a hallmark of a great wedding, so much so that you can often determine the kind of celebration it’s going to be based on the canapés alone. They set the tone for the evening ahead and build anticipation for the main event. Plus, who doesn’t have fond wedding memories conspiring with new and old friends on how to best position yourself to catch the whirling trays of delicious morsels? 

At Rocket, we take canapés very seriously. Two-time winner of Country Life’s Canapé of the Year award, we think they’re such an integral part of event catering we started a luxury canapé delivery service, Pocket Rocket, for all those occasions where you want high-quality nibbles but don’t require full event catering. This might be engagement celebrations, bridal lunches, rehearsal drinks, bridesmaid’s tea or even late-night snacks. Whatever the occasion, canapés always add that extra touch of luxury to make the occasion feel special.

When it comes to the big day, we always encourage couples to go for balance when deciding on canapés. Ideally, you should have something hot, something with a bit of crunch, some familiar favourites, and something new which will surprise and delight your guests. 

The queen of canapés, Rocket Founder and Director Caroline Hall, is here to tell us about her all-time favourite canapés for summer 2022.

  • Potato thins with truffle and parmesan cream – Delicate and crispy, these are perfect alongside a cocktail 
  • Sea bream taco, guacamole, charred spring onion, pimento chilli and lime – Refined fish tacos which are always a crowd-pleaser 
  • Aubergine char sui, puffed green rice, furikake salt – Served on a bamboo skewer, these vegan canapes are hot, crispy, and addictive!
  • Pavé of aged Hereford beef fillet, béarnaise sauceYou can’t go wrong with this classic pairing of tender beef fillet with luscious béarnaise sauce
  • Watermelon radish, celeriac remoulade – Light and refreshing with a variety of textures, these vegan canapés offer something a bit different and taste as good as they look 

Another great option for sustenance during wedding festivities are our Rocket bridge rolls. Perfect for lunchtime celebrations, bridal showers, or bridesmaid’s tea, these light, fluffy rolls are so versatile. We change ours seasonally, though the most popular fillings to keep guests happy are:

    • Chicken and tarragon 
    • Roast beef sirloin and horseradish 
    • Goat’s curd, courgette and black olive
    • Montgomery cheddar, pickle and picked pea shoots
    • Free-range egg and snipped mustard cress
