Wondering about the food and drink for your wedding in Malta? Here’s some inspiration!

Culinary Culture
Everyone wants their wedding menu to be perfect, which is why a destination wedding menu can promise something exciting and unique for your guests.

Malta’s culinary culture reflects its diverse community and history; this means the island’s fantastic caterers can create a menu that is as individual you are and as eclectic as your wedding party.

The Maltese way of life revolves around food and drink with specific food for festas (feasts) and almost every month of the year – and, of course, life events, including weddings, are no exception. Plus, dietary requirements are no hassle and the islands can offer organic, gluten free, vegetarian Halal and raw menus, amongst various others.

Here every day food is heavily influenced by Sicilian and British cuisines, but with a strong Asian and Middle Eastern thread also weaving geographic and economic ties with both regions. The fact that the island is also part of the EU makes it easy to import any ingredient too – so the sky is the limit when it comes to the imagination behind your menu.

In fact, as all top local chefs all have international training as part of their culinary development, and with a strong tourism sector, Malta has experience feeding people from across the globe. And the results are delicious!

Your Dream Theme
The Maltese are perfectionists and will thrive on ensuring every detail is considered and the choices are yours. Your menu can be prepared and presented in either sit down or reception-style. You can even have fun with the attire of the waiting staff or have them burst into song to surprise your guests!

Receptions can be catered in a variety of themes. Here are some ideas that we love:

Festival – have your reception themed in the latest trend with hipster food trucks and live bohomusic
Funfair – popcorn carts, candyfloss, mini burgers, fish ‘n’ chips – relive your childhood!
Traditional – the Maltese and Gozitans have specific traditions you can dip into, to make your wedding unique. The local culture has all sorts of nuances to spoil and entertain your guests
Colour-Coded Weddings are such fun too – perhaps you’d like to create your own cocktail as a welcome drink?
Beach – elegant or informal, sandy or rocky, Malta has beaches to suit every taste. There are very portable catering teams and equipment available to match
Vineyard – pair indigenous foods with local wines in a romantic setting under the stars
At Sea – sail up the coast or around one of the other islands, and have a sumptuous buffet on board a gullet, then take a midnight dip!
Film – so many blockbusters were filmed in Malta, so you could use real movie locations and theme your event accordingly. Take your pick from Troy, Gladiator, By The Sea, Popeye, Lord of the Rings, The league of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Midnight on the Orient Express, the Count of Monte Kristo and event Game of Thrones.

So, the choice is yours! Whatever your desire, we can start with a tasting session and work closely with you and your chosen venue to ensure we build the event and menu to suit you. Please do contact us to discuss your requirements.

  • Firstly, I just wanted to say how lovely it was meeting you, Mauro and the rest of your team and to thank you. Both Andre and I were so impressed with everything you did for Annez and Gio's beautiful wedding on the Salt Pans in Gozo - every detail was taken care of so thoughtfully and we were absolutely blown away by the venue, and of course how it was setup and dressed for their wedding day! It was simply breath-taking and that light (honestly, Andre and I could not get enough of it, which you may have noticed!!). You and your team took such good care of Annez, Gio and the wedding party and nothing was too much trouble. I especially liked your approach to the bride as its very similar to my own (that you are present and in the background, never rushing or stressing the bride or the bridal party). And thank you also for driving me to the Salt Pans - it certainly made it less stressful for me and I really appreciate that! As as for the venue at night - now that really had the 'wow' factor - absolutely magical, both for the guests and the lenses on our cameras :-)

  • Excellent. Nothing but Praise for Petra, Mauro and all the team at I DO KNOT. We celebrated our ruby wedding anniversary in Malta and I DO KNOT arranged everything for us and our 18 guests from Ireland and England. Such hard work and professionalism provided us with a unique 're proposal event' full church service, hotel, entertainment events etc. The I DO KNOT team were there for us, for all the whole 2 weeks and made it such a wonderful event that will never be forgot by the whole party. Feel free to ask them for more details of our functions they provided and you will see exactly how good they are and what such nice people they are and clearly a credit to the people of Malta. They deserve the awards they have achieved so far and Im sure there will be many more.

  • I would recommend Petra and her "I Do Knot" team to everyone! As getting married in Malta was a really last minute decision, Petra was super fast in providing us with best options and deals! I reached out to few companies, but Petra was outstanding and stood out right away! Could not be more thankful. And this comes from a wedding planner herself. If I trusted our day to her, anyone can!

  • I cannot recommend Petra Gasan and her I Do Knot team highly enough! Petra planned the perfect fairytale wedding for us in Malta last month. We are so happy we had Petra as our wedding planner, from start to finish she was there, answering every question promptly, taking in our vision of our wedding and our ideas and coming up with great suggestions and ideas herself. Petra suggested the perfect church and reception for our big day, and organised every detail of our wedding faultlessly. Our guests were so impressed with Petra and her team on the day of our wedding, as were we, as she co ordinated everything without a hitch. It was a relaxing and stress free day as Petra and her team dealt with everything and left us with nothing to worry about. We are delighted with our wedding and have great memories of our special day to look back upon thanks to Petra, we could not have done it without her ! :-)
