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.

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……..

Suitable Wedding caterer

Some established caterers have relationships with marquee companies as well as mobile bar hire companies, it’s an incestuous business and these organisations often cross paths and work together on a regular basis.

When discussing your plans with either party ask the question regarding the other, its easy for a caterer to work with a marquee company who they know and are happy to recommend.

A quick story about a particular marquee company (not fair to mention names) who forgot to put a power supply in the kitchen! Needless to say it caused a delay while extension leads were sourced and installed, it could have been a lot worse for the bride n groom’s big day but fortunately the marquee company had left their number advertising their business.

Think about your preferred date, the busy caterers take bookings a year or so in advance some even longer, some wedding caterers are limited to one or two bookings each weekend with May, June, July and August being the most popular months.  So book early to avoid disappointment, although we have seen an increase in winter weddings over the past couple of years, put a few extra heaters in the marquee and as it is a quiet time for wedding caterers, ask for a better price!
