Here at Kemp and Kemp, we have made quite a name for ourselves when it comes to catering for veggie and vegan weddings. All to do with Karen's passion for flavour, texture and colour - something which isn't often prevalent in the 'veggie option' offered out by most caterers.
Our couples love our veggie and vegan menus so much in fact, we are officially finalists in the V² Friendly Caterer of the Year category at The 1st Vegetarian & Vegan Awards 2020!
In true Kemp and Kemp style - we don't have set menus, but here are a few veggie and vegan options to inspire you.
