Husband and wife team Karen and Richard Kemp are Independent wedding caterers, offering something a little different… no set menus, no corkage and no limits. Their award-winning and flexible approach has redefined what is ‘normal’ for wedding catering. Karen Kemp is a natural cook; full of fresh ideas and amazing combinations, with a mission to give your food the ‘wow’ factor.
Catering is what we do. We use seasonal ingredients to create sensational food that will be the centrepiece of your day and reflect your personality. We use all local produce where possible. When it comes to meat, our food chain is: Tim (farmer), Martyn (butcher), me (Chef). We make everything ourselves using seasonal produce. we don’t want to eat asparagus in Winter and don’t want to be able to buy strawberries (mushy & tasteless) in January.
We are more than happy to cater for most dietary requirements and lifestyle choices. The best accolade 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 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, which is why you should never be presented with a 'menu A' or 'menu B'. 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 don't stop there. Great food needs exceptional project management and 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 bowl food – we can help to prepare a wedding breakfast to suit you perfectly. Get in touch today.
