It’s been a bit over a year since I first posted about food trucks, food carts, portable food and my love of them. Now, the scene has changed (and my love has grown stronger!) – everything from cupcakes to curry is available for private functions – there’s even an app, Where The Truck At, that helps you track them for a quick, cheeky meal!

So together with the lovely Natasha, we made a list of every single food truck in Australia and emailed them for the details on how they cater weddings. Here’s what we found in Victoria (and other states are coming soon!)

    Sold! Come Oct next year, several of these bad boys will be feautured at our wedding. So exciting! So cheap, so delicious, so quirky.

    Any thoughts on the logisitcs of this? If the ceremony (at the farm) is at 4ish, do the trucks and food arrive while all the guests party somewhere else? Or are they there already? hmmmm. Powering them might be an issue. Generators only might be the best way.

      Hi Sophie- each truck will have it’s own power requirements, but generators might be the best way.

      Each truck also has it’s own event duration period (three hours or two etc), so I think depending on the requirements of the trucks it would be better to have them arrive for dinner (post ceremony) allowing time for setup. Would be a nice unexpected surprise for guests to see the trucks arriving!

      Hey Terry,

      Easy option will be on private properties. There are parks that allows wedding food truck catering, but you’ll need to check and book with your local council.

      If you’re interested in barns, warehouse, estates that allows food trucks, drop us an email at hungry@getdelicious.com.au and we’ll send you a list of venues around Melbourne.

      Cheers,
      Victor

    It’s interesting to know how food trucks can cater for weddings. Although I have never seen it before, but I think it’s a great idea especially if you’re looking for an unconventional and unique sort of wedding. I am sure the guests will love the idea too. Great article!
