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.

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

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 and 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 and 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 and 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 and 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!”

Pip & Ben | September 2018

“We were so blown away”

“There are not enough words to describe their performances with regards to the quality of food , service, professionalism, communication, organisation, and such nice people to have at your wedding.”

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 and 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!”

Bryony and Robin

“We had the most amazing day, and a large part of that was down to you and the team.”

Sean

“We had the most amazing day…”

“Thank you so much for everything you did for us – we had lots of compliments about the food and service and it was all very unstressful!! I only wish I had managed to eat more but I was rather full of nerves all day.”

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 and 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 and 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.”

Emily

“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 and 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 and 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 and 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 and 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 and 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 and 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 and 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 and 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 and 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.”

Salvatore Cammarata | Lincolnshire

“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

“Superb!”

“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 and 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 and 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 and 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 and 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 and 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 and 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 and 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 and 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.”

Harriet and David
