What our wonderful clients say...
Our latest 'thank you' after Chris and Becky's wedding at Osmaston: Well, what can I say apart from a huge thank you. 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.

Helen & Pierre wrote: 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!

Dan wrote: 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!!
Salvatore Cammarata (Holly's dad) wrote: 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.

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.
Stacy and Jack wrote: Thank you so much for providing such an excellent service at our wedding. 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.
Phil & Leanne wrote: Thank you for the wonderful job you did on our wedding day. 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. Read on...
Claire & Mark wrote: We thought the catering for our wedding was exceptional. 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.

Jade & Matt wrote: 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.
Helen & James wrote: 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's mum: Everything worked perfectly.. we have had so many comments about the presentation and quality of the food, so a big "thank you" to you. Read on...
James' mum: I would like to express our appreciation of your wonderful food and service on Saturday which were second to none. We have received so many compliments from the guests. Thank you for making the day so memorable.
