Vegetarian & Vegan Menu Ideas

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.

In true Kemp and Kemp style - we don't have set menus, but here are a few veggie and vegan options to inspire you.
