Food is so much more than just a sensory experience. With a worldly understanding of food, ingredients, techniques and trends, Funthyme are able to listen to your story or brief and translate it into your menu, your story.

Over the past 10 years Funthyme has told the stories of hundreds of wedding couples and worked with creative agencies and clients to translate brand stories into food and drink concepts.

We’re proud to support artisan and ethical suppliers. Our menus are inspired by the seasons and the very best that the land and sea has to offer. Funthyme has a defined food style best described as celebratory, natural and bold, bringing together ingredients, techniques and recipes from Europe and beyond.

We work with a dedicated team of event managers and waiting staff. Our approach to service is slick but natural and personable.

Sustainability is at the heart of the operation and we support regenerative agriculture and food systems.

Matt Phelps, Funthyme's founder lives in Great Hallingbury with his partner Danielle and son Raf.

Kind words

We've been meaning to get in contact to say just how fantastic we thought the food was. Everyone has commented just how delicious and interesting it was. The soup was an absolute triumph, and the chicken was just gorgeous and so juicy, and we LOVED the salads. Feedback has been great. We honestly had the best day.

Thank you - you really made it an absolute treat to plan our wedding communicating with you. You have been so patient and your attention to detail and professionalism put us completely at ease. We trusted you do a fantastic job and we were right!
