Information about the services provided by Kemp and Kemp Catering are outlined below
We don’t have set menus here, and we don’t charge corkage either. We use seasonal ingredients to create dishes that suit you perfectly.
Catering is what we do. We serve sensational food that will be the centrepiece of your day.
Crockery / Cutlery
We have no hidden extras – we provide all crockery and cutlery.
Having a selection of desserts is hugely popular at the moment… we can even serve your wedding cake for dessert.. made to look and taste wonderful, served with berry coulis and cream Yum.
We can cater for most dietry requirements. The best acolade was when a life long meat eating father of the bride declared that the (all veggie) wedding breakfast was ‘utterly amazing’ and that he ‘didn’t miss meat at all’
We use all local produce where possible. When it comes to meat, our food chain is: Tim (farmer), Martyn (butcher), me (Chef). How reassuring is that?
We offer a completely free wedding consultation with Karen Kemp, which allows you to discuss ideas together and get creative. No two weddings should serve the same food! Karen LOVES this part of her job and it shows her true passion for and commitment to amazing food. I guarantee you will put the phone down full of fresh ideas… and feeling very hungry.
We make everything ourselves using seasonal produce. we don’t want to eat asparagus in Winter & don’t want to be able to buy strawberries (mushy & tasteless) in January.
Great food needs great service too. We have three wonderful front of house managers (Including Richard Kemp). They head up a team of energetic, smiley, efficient & professional waiting staff.
Whether you are looking for a 3 course sit down meal, sharing platters or afternoon tea – we can help to prepare a wedding breakfast to suit you.
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!

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 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.

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.
