Another testimonial from the Summer #Wedding season

I just wanted to drop you an email before we go on our honeymoon to say how thrilled we were with your services on Saturday. We had so many comments from our guests of how excellent the quality of the food was, and the flavours of the dishes were great. The service we received from the waiting on and bar staff was great as well, they were really helpful and the speed of which they turned out the food was impressive.

On behalf of me and Charles we just wanted to say thank you, we have been told by many of our guests it was the best wedding they have ever been to which is a lovely compliment, and we feel some of that credit goes to you and your team.

The service before the day was also excellent, It really helped put our minds at ease having it all so well organised and the communication we received gave us added confidence that you would deliver well on the day.

I will be sure to recommend you to anyone in the future, as im sure Alex Griffiths will be too!

All the best, Annika & Charlie

Thanks for the Testimonial…………….

Sorry we have been so slow in getting this to you. I thought we might be able to write in straight to the website but couldn’t find a way to do this, so we’ve just written it below instead.

” We are so glad we picked ‘Catered-Events‘ for our country wedding, they went above and beyond what we had asked, in order to help our day run smoothly. Many people have commented that the food was excellent and we couldn’t have asked for more on taste, quality and value for money. They were very efficient, friendly and helpful before and during the big day, and we would recommend them to anyone wanting great food and good service.”

Menu tasting your Caterer

To further help determine the caterers credentials ask about menu tasting, any self-respecting wedding caterer will offer to menu taste ahead of your wedding reception, some will insist, most will be keen to show off their skills although don’t expect a fully laid up banquet consisting of 10 different dishes for you to pick and choose.

Pan fried Scallop with broad bean & pea shoot starter course

Some caterers may lay on multiple dishes but will charge for it, narrow the menu down to an idea of what you like versus the cost before you arrange a food taste.

We charge for food tastes but also refund the cost upon receiving a booking, we have never had a job cancel after a menu taste so more than happy to offer it for free, although menu tasting up to 8 dishes does carry a non-refundable charge.

Charging for food tastes with a refund will highlight those looking for a free lunch!

If you plan to serve canapes to your guests on arrival then ask the caterer to provide a few sample canapes, you can gauge much about the caterer from the presentation as well as the taste of their canapes, the style of the Chef and ultimately make your decision.

Ask about a wine list, drinks packages and a Mobile bar hire……..

checking the caterers credentials

When talking with your potential caterer and seeking testimonials,  ask if they have clients who would be prepared to discuss their experience via telephone or email. Its harder than you may think to get the client to write that testimonial, all the best well wishes are made after the event or wedding (I know I’ve been there many times) but actually getting that small letter proves the client is prepared to take the time out and express there actual feelings surrounding the service they received.

I not suggesting certain websites publish fabricated testimonials! but ask to see the originals. 

“well despite my original concerns everything went fantastic on the night. Now I understand your concerns about sourcing a suitable chef as I understand that you only use chefs who you have used before – I did not appreciate that Richard would be making such a long journey.

 A big thank you for the organisation of the party catering it couldn’t have gone better, if this is the standard of the chefs you employ they are all a credit to you. Richard was fantastic not only was the  meal  superb (every single guest was very impressed) but his professional manner, organisation and tidiness were fantastic and I can’t speak more highly of him. If ever we need any catering in future I will definitely be in touch with you again and request his services.

 Again a very big thank you from a very satisfied client, Ron & Val

Final touches being made to today’s marquee wedding reception…..

A great way to determine the caterers credentials is ask if you can have a sneak preview of their next wedding by joining them back of house. While they are preparing their next wedding meal, you can see the set-up for yourself, the presentation of the food and even get a chance to taste it. Be warned though, don’t stand still too long as the Chef may well have you running a plate out!
