International Wedding Cuisine

The Toronto Wedding Chapel hosts weddings for couples that are local, national and international. Toronto is known as the most culturally diverse city in the world. In fact over 140 languages and dialects are spoken here and we embrace the diverse fabric that makes Toronto so special. We cater to couples of many different ethnicities and we don’t just talk the talk; we walk the walk. The Toronto Wedding Chapel can provide Officiants that speak French, Spanish, Portuguese, Mandarin, Cantonese and Russian in addition to English.

We offer a variety of multi-ethnic cuisines and cater to special religious dietary needs as well.


At the Toronto Wedding Chapel we offer an inspired variety of cuisines and we can incorporate your cultural wedding food traditions into the menus. Food is often the perfect way to bridge the gap at multi-ethnic weddings. Different cultures have some very interesting wedding food traditions:

Indian Weddings: There is no wedding cake, but it is customary for the bride and groom to feed each other bites of sweeter food such as honey and yogurt.

Korean Weddings: Long noodles, called kuk soo are served to represent a long life for the happy couple.

English Weddings: Wedding cakes were flavored with fruit as a symbol of fertility and prosperity and most often topped with a layer of marzipan and royal icing.

Italian Weddings: There can be as many as 14 food and drink courses, starting with antipasto and ending with espresso and cake. Guests are served wanda, bow ties of fried dough dipped in powdered sugar that symbolized good luck.

Mexican Weddings: Guests are served spicy rice, beans and tortillas. The traditional Mexican wedding cake is made with nuts and dried fruit and soaked in rum.

Jewish Weddings: The reception meal begins with Hamotzi, the Blessing over the Challah, a sweet, braided loaf of bread.

Spanish Weddings: Paella, a Spanish stew made with seafood and rice is served, as is sangria, a wine-based drink with fresh fruit.

African Weddings: In a Yoruba ritual, called Tasting the Four Elements, the newlywed couple tastes four flavours that represent a relationship’s ups and downs: sour – lemon, bitter – vinegar, hot – cayenne, and sweet – honey.

Portuguese Weddings: Typically 5 courses are served in addition to a midnight seafood buffet.

Filipino Weddings: Lechon – roasted whole pig – is a staple in Filipino weddings with literally every wedding celebration serving one, or two, or more.
