Handy facts when including LPG in your wedding
Cooking on gas
LPG acts just like natural gas and not only is it perfect for a consistent cuisine whether you are feeding 50 or 500, it is also great for barbecues.
If you are looking for venues out in the wilds, it is good to know that as well as being a clean, low carbon fuel, LPG cylinders are recycled. Your caterer should take care of this and remove cylinders from the venue as part of the catering package
In the groove
For those wanting to dance the night away under the moonlit skies, LPG heaters can keep your guests warm and cosy, wherever the dancefloor.
Keep the fireworks in the sky
If your special day involves fireworks, your caterers should make sure LPG cylinders are well protected from any stray sparks and the display coordinator knows where they are.
Clear the decks
To avoid any slips or tips, your caterer should keep cylinders stored away from the festivities and merry guests.
LPG has great environmental credentials and is low carbon and smoke free, but it is flammable, so make sure designated smoking areas and LPG aren’t sharing the same space!
Chief Executive of UKLPG, Rob Shuttleworth said: “LPG is extremely versatile and great for giving couples the freedom to entertain and feed guests in remote and magical locations that are off the gas grid, without compromising on food choices and a quality dining experience.”
