What Our Clients Say About Us .

“Thank you for the amazing food on our wedding day! The guests loved it!”

Amy & Declan

“If you are looking for something different to wow your guests – book Kemp & Kemp! Kemp & Kemp designed a bespoke menu for us for our wedding in June 2022, we are both pescatarian and chose a vegetarian sharing menu which went down a storm with our guests. We wanted the food to be a social event so we opted for this style of dining, everything was served family style so guests could share – it was all delicious especially the dessert boards. The service was fantastic and the level of detail and organisation from Richard, Karen, Amy & the team was fantastic from start to finish. We highly recommend to book them for your wedding or event.”

Lily & James
North Wales

“Everything went really well, so thanks for everything, and especially please pass on our thanks to the team that were there on the day, they were all great.”

Rachel & Ant

We approached Kemp & Kemp with the idea of a wedding breakfast inspired by our favourite Indian restaurant, which we wanted served in a relaxed sharing style. Karen created a fantastic menu to this effect – it felt far more like we were working with real foodies than a traditional wedding caterer where you can just pick Menu A or Menu B and that’s your lot.

Food can definitely make or break a wedding and we are so happy that ours was a standout element of the day; our guests were raving about the food. Karen and Richard were super easy to deal with in the run up to our day, and we then received brilliant service from their team on the day.
Huge thanks and highly recommend.


We were recommended Kemp & Kemp catering and we are so glad we listened! Throughout the process, we were supported along the way in decision-making both on the phone and by email in a very friendly manner. You can certainly tell that they have done weddings before as the precision in timings was immaculate and made everything on the day run like clockwork. Wow is all we can say about the food! We had so many compliments from guests “The best wedding good we have had” ” When we had the nibbles, we knew it was going to be good food”. All we can say if you are going to book them, you will be well fed with delicious food and well looked after by the staff. 

Thank you so much.

Ewan Evans

Kemp and Kemp were absolutely fantastic. From arranging delivery of linen etc, to the way the day ran and the after care, I cannot fault them at all! We had a vegetarian wedding which we were originally concerned about putting on as a lot of our guests eat meat, but we had so many comments on how amazing the food was meat was not missed!!

The staff who attended on the day were all friendly and polite, the service ran perfectly and the chef was so lovely, taking the time to come and find us after service to check we were happy. Plus note- chip butties as evening food were a revelation! Everyone loved them particularly our American guests. Karen and Richard are lovely to deal with, I would have no troubles recommending them as your wedding caterers… I only hope we have cause to use them again one day ourselves!


Kemp & Kemp catered for our wedding. We were so pleased with their food and a number of people who came up to us to praise the quality of the food. They stepped up to the plate last minute when our previous caterer went bust, help and inputted constantly in the run-up to the day and we really couldn’t have done it without them!

Henry Saunders

Theo and I wanted to send a massive thank you to you, Karen, Amy, Abbey and everyone else involved in our wedding on Saturday.

We found throughout the planning process that as soon as the word “wedding” was mentioned, suppliers would often have their own ideas of how things should be. Not you guys. You fitted seamlessly into our plans and worked so hard to make our vision a reality. No seating plan, last minute changes, more tables than expected on the day. Nothing was too much trouble and nothing phased you. You have all been a calming presence from the moment of our inquiry until the day itself.

Abbey – you and your team were SO sweet and lovely. I don’t think we made it easy for you, especially with all the moving around of tables, no seating plan etc. But you always were so calm and professional, and always with a smile on your face. We’re so grateful for that and we hope all was ok for your team.

People often say that when you look back on your wedding, you won’t remember the details, you’ll just remember the feelings you had. Well, we definitely won’t forget the feeling of incredible service and passion that was poured into every aspect of our day. You really are the best. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Maddie & Theo

Quite simply… the food was amazing, and the service was excellent!

Catering for 270 people in a marquee isn’t easy, however Kemp and Kemp did an exceptional job.

Kemp and Kemp have a great relationship with the venue owners at Wethele Manor which helped with the organisation of our corporate Christmas Party.

I would highly recommend their services…you will not be disappointed! It was a pleasure dealing with Richard and Karen throughout the entire process…thank you both very much.

Nick Sibly SSG
Wethele Manor

Just wanted to say thank you for the service on the day. The food went down fantastically and it tasted great. Amy, the catering lead on the day and her team were brilliant. They were attentive, helpful and made us feel calm and at ease throughout. There were a couple of little touches which really made all the difference and I have no doubt that Amy was key to them. 

Paris & Matt

“There were a couple of little touches which really made all the difference.”

“Just sending a note from our honeymoon to thank you, Amy, Jason and the team for such wonderful food on our wedding day. The monkfish was exceptional – you were absolutely right about the red pepper purée! We have had so many people commenting on it and just wanted to pass that on.”

Eleanor & Chris

A very big thank you to everyone at Kemp & Kemp for providing the catering for our wedding in Edale. The food was fantastic and everything we had hoped for. Our guests were very impressed.

Victoria & Josh

“It is clear why you are so popular!”

“Thanks to Kemp & Kemp for putting on an incredible feast for our wedding! The service in particular was outstanding – Richard and his team were so incredibly attentive without ever feeling too full on, and this made us feel confident the whole day was in perfect hands. The food was more than plentiful too, which is what we know is key to keeping an alcohol-fuelled crowd happy! Couldn’t recommend K&K highly enough for future weddings or big events!”

Hannah & Antony

“Thanks for everything Richard, please pass our thanks to Amy as well who did a great job on the day. The day was perfect and we got lots of compliments on the food.”

Katie & Jeff

“We would also like to take this opportunity to thank you so much for your assistance both in the lead up and on the day of the wedding.  The food was amazing and with so many dietary requirements everyone was saying how well they had been accommodated. I was told by several of our guests that the food was the best they had ever had at a wedding. We were so pleased to have chosen you”

The Food!!! Well what can I say, everything was sensational. We had sharing boards to start, Porchetta, roast potatoes and veg, everything was cooked brilliantly and tasty everything was hot when served. The dessert was amazing. All our guests couldn’t believe it was all cooked in a marquee.

I would recommend Kemp and Kemp to anyone. Thank you again so much to ask your staff, and suppliers who were efficient delivering and collecting their equipment.

 And this was a message from one of our guests!!

“Thank you for asking us… really enjoyed it and as for the food!!! BEST food I have ever had at a wedding!!! It was bloody gorgeous!!!!!”

Charlotte & Ben

We were very impressed with the whole package from the serving of reception drinks to the end of the meal. We had many guests paying compliments about the meal and also with the professional service offered by your staff. Also the attention to detail taken by Richard prior to the wedding day made everything run smoothly on the day. I would certainly recommend your company to others.”

Michelle & Sam

Thank you again!”

Jenny & Jonathan

“The food was sublime!”

“From the very first consultation to the wedding itself, Kemp & Kemp were brilliant. Every single person commented on how delicious the food was and the serving staff were also brilliant, friendly and helped when there were any issues. We had a guest turn up who we were not expecting and were worried about ensuring they were fed on the day – Kemp & Kemp made no issue of it and ensured they received the same level of high quality food with no fuss which saved us a lot of stress on the day. We also had the hog roast which I CANNOT BEGIN to say how incredible that was! We spoke to the head hog roaster on the night who was brilliant and clearly very passionate about what he does. This was definitely a highlight for us all and the crackling was out of this world! THANK YOU Kemp & Kemp – we couldn’t be happier or recommend you enough.”

Katie & Brad

“If your guests are still talking about the Wedding Breakfast 6 months after the wedding, then you know your Caterers SMASHED IT. Kemp & Kemp were so professional and insanely organised in the lead up to our wedding. Our venue was a blank canvas and Kemp & Kemp basically had to run the day, so I was very Bridezilla in the lead up but looking back now, i did not need to stress as much as I did because Kemp & Kemp have done this a thousand times over and are AMAZING at what they do. They didn’t leave a detail or question out. Kemp & Kemp done us Pie and mash for our main meal, and it has been claimed as ‘ the best pie’ our guests have had. The Pudding platters were absolutely incredible (I wish I had time to eat more of it) and our evening buffet of Fish finger Baps went down a storm! We will be forever grateful for all what your team done for us on our special day, and we wouldn’t hesitate in re-booking again. Thank you again.”

Mr & Mrs Longhurst

“Our wedding food was absolutely beautiful, thank you so much – we have had some amazing feedback from guests who also loved the food, with many saying it’s the best wedding food they’ve had, which is fab. Hayley was also lovely and said she was super pleased with how everything went.”

Tara & Alex

“I know your day didn’t go as planned but we had the best day ever and you helped us achieve it so THANK YOU”

Mike & Caradoc

“We had the best day ever!”

“We just wanted to say a massive thank you for making our wedding day the best day of our lives! Hayley and the team smashed it and we had nothing to worry about (apologies for being the bridezilla moments before hand). The pies were incredible and we had people say it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had.”

Gemma & Lewis

“Everything went well – Kemp and Kemp’s organisation and catering were excellent and everyone enjoyed themselves.”

Anne Manning | Mother of the Bride, Debbie and Greg

“From the get go your organisation has totally out our mind at rest and we couldn’t fault the quality of the food or service. Hayley and the team were absolutely incredible and we’ve had so many compliments on the food. My only regret is I didn’t eat more of it!!”

Nat & Matt

“Thank you so much to you, Hayley and the rest of the team who did such a great job at our wedding. The food went down a treat and we were really happy with it.”

Lizzie & Oliver

“Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you both as well as Liam and his team for last Saturday! The entire menu was absolutely wonderful and Liam was outstanding – we had many compliments about how good the food and service was – so we will definitely be recommending Kemp & Kemp in future!”

Bride & Groom | June 2019

“We will definitely be recommending Kemp & Kemp in future!”

“From the very beginning and our exciting Skype call with Karen discussing the kind of feast we’d like to create, to the day before the wedding excitedly walking around the site with you, Richard, and the beautiful and delicious food we all were lucky enough to eat on Saturday you both have been so passionate about what you do, reassuringly organised, calm and relaxed and made us feel like our wedding day was the most important thing in the world. We are so grateful for this and so glad we chose you guys. We had more comments about the food being the ‘best wedding food ever’ and people saying they want to eat the chicken again and again that we can’t even remember them all! It was epic. And to so smoothly manage such a difficult morning and achieve all of that is truly impressive.”

Harriet & Harri | June 2019

“Thank you again for the great food. We would be happy to speak with any potential clients of yours that need any convincing that you’re the best around! Everyone loved the food and so did we. In fact my stomach looks large in all the photos because I ate so much!…Thank you again, it was really incredible!!”

Pam & Perry | June 2019

“Everyone loved the food and so did we!”

“I’ve been meaning to write anyway to tell you how amazing the food was on our wedding day!!! Everything was delicious and so beautifully presented. Several people have told us it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had! The service was also fantastic so thank you so very much!”

Alice & Jono | June 2019

The food and service was absolutely wonderful – thank you to you and all your team for making it so seamless on the day. 

Donna & Denis | June 2019

“The food and service was absolutely wonderful”

“Thank you both for the key part you played in our happy day on Saturday. The food was spectacular, unanimously so, and guests stayed sated well into Sunday. Both quality and quantity were superb. As somebody who loves organisation, your contact and checklists prior to the day helped to focus our minds and ensure everyone had complete catering clarity! We loved your approach and are so grateful guests left with full hearts and full stomachs.”

Pam & Perry | June 2019

“Just a quick email to say thank you so much for last Saturday. We have had so many comments about how great the food was – everyone loved the relaxed nature of the sharing platters and the amazing flavours. Plus everything seemed to run more smoothly than I could have imagined so thank you for your seamless on the day management Richard.”

Anna & Matt | May 2019

“I just wanted to send an email to thank you for catering our wedding on Saturday. The food was amazing and all the guests loved it!! The dessert went down especially well. Everything was so well organised and made our day completely stress free. Hayley was absolutely brilliant!! Guests even came to tell me how wonderful she was and how accommodating she was with any requests. We couldn’t have asked for any more.”

Lisa & Jake | May 2019

“I just want to thank you so much for the food at our wedding last Saturday. It exceeded our expectations and was absolutely delicious, we have had so many comments from our guests saying it was the best food they have had at a wedding. Thank you for making everything so seamless. You and your staff helped make it such a special day.”

Mr & Mrs Davis | May 2019

“The food was amazing, the beef outstanding. All the comments were positive and unanimously the best food served at any wedding they had been to. Here was a wedding where the food was centre of attention. All the dishes worked well and there were lots of photos taken. The atmosphere created by the sharing and the carving was just as we had hoped. Your staff were brilliant, friendly, willing, efficient and well organised. We had THE most fantastic of days.. Once again our thanks, you delivered everything we hoped for.”

Linda | October 2018

“Jim and I would like to say a huge thank you to both you and Karen, the food was superb and it all ran like clockwork. The comments we’ve had from family and friends regarding the food have been lovely and everyone seemed to love it. We couldn’t have had a more perfect day and are both still on cloud 9.”

Laura & Jim Burgoyne of Burgoynes Marquees | October 2018

“The food was superb!”

“The BIGGEST THANK YOU to you and your team for all the support and suggestions leading up to and on the day of our special day. You guys absolutely smashed it!!!! – so many of our guests commented on how wonderful the food was… and different too! Liam was so relaxed and helpful – he had everything under control with such a genuine happy smile, I could literally ask him for anything!! I am so grateful for all your support in the lead up – the checklist covered more than everything which gave me such confidence in handing it over to you guys.”

Abi & Joss | October 2018

“We are foodies, and K&K understood our vision. The fact you don’t offer set menus shows that you are a level above. The world was our oyster – anything and everything was possible. That’s exactly what we wanted and made you in a whole other league to any other caterer we met with. You delivered and exceeded on everything!!! We felt we designed our own menu with expertise guidance and industry standard knowledge. We’ve been told it was the “best wedding food ever”.”

Mr & Mrs Moores | October 2018

“The world was our oyster – anything and everything was possible”

“As I said to you when we met I was most reassured by your positive approach and the careful organisation in the planning stage clearly paid off. As to the food itself all the guests thoroughly enjoyed all of it. The food itself was delicious and fresh and the sharing boards for starter and main course were such fun. To sit down to what felt like a family feast was exactly right!! The burrata were a particular success but all aspects of the food and delivery were wonderful. Liam was a delight as you said. He was calm, pleasant and professional throughout and a pleasure to work with too. Equally the chefs and serving staff were all great. We would be delighted to recommend you to anyone for future weddings.”

Bernadette Ashby | October 2018

“The sharing boards for starter and main course were such fun”

“Benedict and I were so blown away with how amazing the food and service were for our wedding back on 25th. Tina, the chefs (I’m so sorry I didn’t get their names) and the service staff were amazing. Thank you for their patience in letting us decide where we were to have our ceremony (thankfully the sun came out) and then being able to turn around the room in such quick timing ready for service. They really pulled out all of the stops to make sure everything was perfect. Thank you Karen for guiding us through the process, tempting us with amazing sounding menus, to the tasting and show casing your delicious recipes (and obviously all the prep you do too!) It was just perfect. Thank you Richard for answering all my random queries and being so organised with the planning. Benedict, myself and all our guests were so thrilled with the food, presentation and service. It felt so special and was everything we wanted to achieve from the meal and more! The desserts in particular got a few Instagrams.”

Pip & Ben | September 2018

“The wedding all went to plan and we absolutely loved the catering and the efforts you and the team put in. The food was incredible (we had so many compliments) and the service was equally brilliant. It is no problem giving our details to prospective clients and we would have nothing but praise for you. Equally, we would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone friends or family in the future.” 

Emily & Andrew | September 2018

“Tina, the chefs and the service staff were amazing. Benedict, myself and all our guests were so thrilled with the food, presentation and service. It felt so special and was everything we wanted to achieve from the meal and more!”

Chris | September 2018

“Of course, the food was exceptional and we had many compliments throughout the reception, usually accompanied by the statement that it was the best wedding food they had ever eaten! So thank you for your advice on the menu and thanks to your chef for a wonderful job. I must admit you had ‘ruined’ other food for us now as we will be forever comparing to your catering!”

James | August 2018

“What the guests all said: ” excellent food and Service” ” couldn’t believe how hot the food was for so many persons” ” beautiful choice of menu – the chicken and sauce was superb” ” cooked to perfection” ” the pavlova’s were to die for – wish I could have had a plate full” ” fantastic waitress service – polite and courteous. ” the canapés were unbelievable – so tasty” -Just a selection of comments I received!”

Mr & Mrs Beasley | August 2018

“Everyone said how delicious it was and the vegetarians (including me) said they’d never had anything as delicious as the raviolo! The vegans were also raving about their dessert!”

Emma & Nathan | August 2018

“The vegetarians (including me) said they’d never had anything as delicious”

“We lost count of the guests who came to tell us it was by far and away the most gorgeous food they had had at a wedding, but really just delicious food full-stop! We were so impressed and felt completely at ease.”

Kate | August 2018

“We got married nearly three months ago and people are still telling us how much they loved the food.  If the quality of food is really important to you at your wedding, talk to these guys…”

Louisa & Steve | August 2018

“Just a note to say that the food on Saturday was SPECTACULAR! Everyone commented on how great the food was and a lot of people said it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had. Thank you for everything!”

Faith | August 2018

“Thanks for the fantastic job you and your team did at the wedding. Everything went perfectly and the food went down brilliantly, thanks ever so much for making things go so well and for dealing with the singing/dancing band members and guests so effortlessly. Everyone we’ve spoken to have said how much they particularly enjoyed the food.”

Anieka & Ian

“I just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with the catering at Sarah and Ollie’s wedding on Saturday, the service was brilliant, food was delicious and you looked after us so well. It was such high quality and lots of it. It far exceeded my expectations. I have arranged a few events over the years and your catering was definitely one of the best I have used. I have recommended you to a couple of people this morning who have children getting married in the next year.”

Sue Carter

“The feedback was amazing, everyone loved the food. (catering at Swansway Jaguar for the Launch of the new Jaguar E-PACE).”

Emma Goodall

Dealership Marketing Manager | Swansway Jaguar | Crewe

“The Feedback Was Amazing”

“Where do I start?! After being let down by a local catering company we were recommended Kemp and Kemp and they put me at ease immediately, they really do know everything about every type of wedding, and helped out with so much more than just food. The tasting sessions, the checklists, the emails, all there to help before the big day. And on the big day the food and service was just amazing, everyone has not stopped talking about it since, it completely fitted our theme and we all had very full bellies. Thank you so much Karen and Richard xxx”

Leanne & David

“Firstly I wanted to say thank you. We had so much amazing feedback about the food at our wedding, it was a massive hit and everything we wanted it to be. Andre was really lovely and everything ran so smoothly.”


“We had so much amazing feedback about the food at our wedding…”

“Kemp & Kemp were fantastic and couldn’t recommend them highly enough! A delight to work with all through the planning stage and a very useful source of knowledge when it came to anything wedding food related, their experience was invaluable. The staff they provided for service were all so lovely and helpful and then the food – wow! We were so impressed that they were able to feed almost 150 people a hot, tasty, well presented meal in a tent, in the pouring down rain! All the guests were complimenting us on the food – hot, scrummy and tons of it! We said we wouldn’t compromise on the food and were really glad we didn’t – wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone!”

Caroline & James

“Just a small note to say a huge thank you to you & your team for providing us with the most fantastic service and absolutely delicious food for our Wedding last Saturday, 17th June in London. Everything went perfectly and so many people have been saying just how fantastic the food was and that they normally don’t enjoy the wedding food at weddings!! It really is outstanding. It was fantastic and the team did so so well considering how very hot it was! Thanks again, would highly recommend you to anyone who was considering your services for their wedding.”

Alicia & Morgan

“Sam and I can’t thank you and your team enough! The food was stunning!! Literally the best food any of us have had at a wedding!! The service was top notch and so friendly, thank you so so much for all your help it really has been amazing!”

Sophie & Sam

“We wanted to thank you and Karen so much for all your hard work in the run up to the wedding and on the day. You and the team were absolutely brilliant, so many people commented on the amazing canapés and delicious meal and also on the exceptional service of all the staff. I wanted to say a special thank you to you too (Richard). You really reassured me on the Friday how everything was going to run and on the day you were so friendly and lovely and very calm. Thank you so much.”

Rachael & Mark

“I would have no problems giving Kemp & Kemp Catering a reference, you were absolutely fantastic and we would use you again. Your food and service are still being talked about from our wedding.”

Emma & Angus | Warwickshire

“Absolutely fantastic!”

“Thank you so much for the excellent food you served at our wedding. Lots of guests commented on how lovely the food was. The waitress service your staff provided was also excellent – they were attentive and professional at all times.”

Helen & James | Worcestershire

“Thank you so much for the excellent food”

“I cannot begin to tell you how over-the-moon we were with the food and service that you provided. Everyone commented on the quality of the food and how nice it was to have such variety and something ‘a bit different’. As with most brides, I didn’t manage to eat a great deal as I was chatting with guests and generally feeling elated, but what I did eat was truly amazing.”

Jade & Matt | Warwickshire

“Many thanks for helping to make our wedding day so special. Your food and service were fantastic & many of our guests commented on how good they thought you were.”

Michael & Joanna | Warwickshire

“Many thanks for helping to make our wedding day so special!”

“The service during the drinks’ reception was organised and efficient; exactly what we asked for. The canapés were like nothing we’d ever tasted and they are still a major talking point of our guests – particularly the mini cottage pies! We cannot even begin to describe the main course – it was sensational. The beef was cooked to perfection and, as huge connoisseurs and lovers of chips, yours are without doubt the best we have ever tasted! Again, guests have commented on how delicious all the food was. We are great believers that if you get the food and drink right at your wedding then the rest will take care of itself.”

Claire & Mark | Leicestershire

“The food was exactly what we wanted. More than just the food though, the professionalism and brilliant planning that made the day run so smoothly was amazing. Knowing this meant we knew everything would go to plan and we could just enjoy ourselves. You get top marks for project planning and coordination, as well as for the wonderful food.”

Stacy & Jack | Warwickshire

“Thank you so much for providing such an excellent service at our wedding”

“We literally had the best day of our lives and it was in no small part down to both of you. The service and treatment from you and your staff was faultless. The food was truly delicious and was exactly what we had hoped for when we imagined our wedding. Everyone commented on how good everything was from start to finish. Perhaps your biggest fan was Thea (our 6 month old daughter) who could not quite believe how good it was to eat home made custard. Once again, thanks for everything you did from conception to delivery.”

Phil & Leanne | Cheshire

“Everything you did was flawless. Your staff were professional and your service was impeccable and of course, the food was incredible. We had so many complimentary comments and people could not praise the home-made ‘Eton mess’ enough. It was a truly memorable meal, preceded by delicious canapes prepared exactly as we wanted them. Thank you too for being so accommodating – you took on board exactly what we wanted and translated everything perfectly to the plate. We could not have chosen better people to be involved in the most special day of our lives and we hope that we have the pleasure of eating your food again.”

Penny & Gareth | Warwickshire

“Thank you for the outstanding catering at our wedding”

“When we first started to look for wedding caterers for Holly and Dan I believed we were up against it because I have never had acceptable food at any mass catering event. Furthermore, it had to be good enough to please the many Italians in our family who insist food has to taste good and be presented in the best possible way. At our first meeting we knew we had found kindred spirits with Kemp & Kemp. Your ideas and proposals were exactly what we had spent weeks looking for. Our tasting session encouraged us more – but could Karen achieve that standard on the day? I know that cooking for these numbers in a marquee doesn’t get much harder. Suffice to say, all expectations were exceeded by a good margin. We are still talking about the canapés weeks later. The main course (including the Vegetarian option) was superb, and I would have been proud to have made the sauteed potatoes with rosemary myself, not to mention the sauteed endive. The desserts too were unbelievable. Our guests were talking about the meal all night, and my dad said it was the best meal he has ever eaten outside our family… he now even concedes that English people can cook – well, some. On top of this, the service was outstanding. I will say again – you achieved everything we asked for, and more. Thank you for making the wedding so memorable.”

“I thought your side of things was superb. I can honestly say its the best wedding breakfast I’ve had, which is a bonus as it was mine!!”

Dan | Northamptonshire


“Thank you for everything – you were there for us every step of the way and exceeded our expectations. The food was exquisite and the front-of-house flawless.”

Sam & Mark | Shropshire

“Thank you for everything!”

“We cannot thank you enough for the special attention you gave every aspect of your service. Richard, your infallibly calm attitude was a godsend and Karen, please agree to be our chef and come and live with us! Of all our suppliers you were the easiest to deal with and by far the most organised.. We are your biggest fans!”

Helen & Pierre | Cheshire

“Thank you so much for enabling our wedding to be everything that we could have hoped for and dreamed of. You understood implicitly what we were after. In a sea of over-priced, uninspiring, fancy wedding food you are a beacon of inspiration & goodness.”

Emily & Tom | Cheshire

“Becky and Chris have flown off on honeymoon, but I wanted to let you both know how thrilled we all were with your service. Richard… your staff were fantastic.. professional, discreet and very efficient! It was lovely to have such wonderful service, with no stress or worries. The food, Karen was even better than expected! Absolutely delicious! The sharing platters worked beautifully, watching from the top table was a delight to see how people chatted and interacted at their tables.. Fabulous and just how Chris and Becky wanted it. From the posh nibbles to the delicious desserts, the food was faultless. The whole day was perfect, thanks for making their day so special.”

Chris & Becky | Derbyshire

“Karen, Richard, Tina and the whole team, Ben and I wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to you all for Saturday. The day went perfectly, the food was everything we dreamed it would be and all of our guests loved it too. The whole day was managed brilliantly and I don’t think I was asked one single question during the morning as everything seemed to have been planned meticulously! Thank you for making our day so special.”

Louise & Ben | Derbyshire

“I wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to you all”

“I am at the risk of being gushy and running out of superlatives because the quality of the food was beyond excellent; your professionalism was superb; your presence, your command and your control were superb – you got everything absolutely right for us – it surpassed our expectations. We are a demanding lot and from our perspective the whole day was flawless. We were delighted with everything and a huge part of the success can be credited to you. Thank you Richard and Karen, I shall recommend you at every opportunity and am happy to share our experiences with prospective clients of yours.”

Caroline | Ashbourne

“Thank you so much for the incredible wedding breakfast canapes and cheese table you put together for our wedding. We couldn’t believe it when the food tasted as good as it had when we met you, Karen, in August to taste the sample menu. How you produced such incredible, top-quality food from that tiny catering tent is beyond us – you’re amazing.”

Bethan & Mark | Staffordshire

“I knew it would be good but it far exceeded our expectations and our guests were completely wowed by it. Everyone commented that it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding (or to be honest the majority of restaurants as well!) and it was a major talking point. Tina and the rest of the guys did a great job of organising the day (in spite of our total lack of organisation). So, thank you, you really made our wedding day fantastic!”

Helen & Steve | Derbyshire

“I have been to probably over forty and this excelled all of them. The food was stunning from beginning to end. It was served in unique ways and tasted fantastic. Everyone commented that it was the best they have ever had. Even the next day it was the hot topic of conversation. I cannot thank you enough for making the day so memorable for the special couple. My daughter’s choice of caterers was perfect.”

M’s Dad | Staffordshire

“No one ever remembers the food at weddings but I can honestly say- Everybody is still talking about the food!!! It was everything we wanted and so much more. Absolutely delicious… Mouth watering and phenomenal looking. And then there was the service… Richard you were absolutely brilliant. Your attention to detail, your personality and your organisation… Your team are a credit to you too. Polite, professional and brilliant at what they do. We honestly can’t thank you enough… If there is anything we can do by way of recommendation- please don’t hesitate to let us know. Thank you so, so much.”

Lucy & Alan | Shropshire

“Thank you so, so much for making our wedding so unbelievably perfect!”

“We spent literally weeks looking for caterers that offered something a little bit different we wanted whimsical, but professional. After contacting several references, and many late night Skype calls with Karen & Richard (we live in New Zealand, but were getting married at my family home in the UK) we were confident they were the best choice. At first, I felt they were a bit too expensive – I had spreadsheets comparing tens of caterers, costs, value for money, references etc. Kemp & Kemp weren’t the cheapest but the value for money, the quality of the menus, the cooking (my God, the food!!), the help they provide, how easy they make things – they were an absolute pleasure to work with. I have to say, after initially almost not choosing them because I was worried about the cost, I can genuinely say that now the wedding is over, I’d have been happy to pay a good percentage more to use them!”

Rosie Borland | Gloucestershire

“Thank you so very much for the fantastic food and service and generally wonderful time you and your team provided for us on our wedding. We had the most fantastic day we could have possibly imagined. The food was incredible – we had so many compliments about it. (I think I must have heard the phase “oh – those potatoes!” at least 20 times! We absolutely loved the porchetta – especially when we took a moment to look around the room and see each table nominating various guests to carve and serve. It was so convivial and exactly what I wanted on our wedding day. Your team was absolutely on it! Really seamless service and so friendly and helpful. Particularly all the little details like making sure we had our own little plate of canapés during the drinks reception. Honestly – we just had such a great day and know how much work it takes to make it all work so well so thank you very very much.”
