Wedding Testimonials

We just wanted to say another big thank you for making our wedding day so incredibly special! It was wonderful knowing we had you guys there and we didn’t have to worry about a thing so we could enjoy the day to the max! A lot of guests commented on how delicious the food was and the late night butties and toasties went down a treat!

Phil thank you for being on hand with champagne and keys to the jetty when we were having photos taken, much appreciated!

Charlotte we’ve had a great time getting to know you since December, thanks for making the whole process fun and easy! We’ll pop in and say hi if we’re around Kendal in the future.

Best wishes,

Chris & Jess (Mr & Mrs Rayner)

Just wanted to thank you, the chef and all your staff who helped make our wedding reception at New House Farm such a fantastic occasion. We’ve had many many comments from family and friends on how good the food was. My father in particular said the beef was absolutely delicious, and he’s quite critical on his food so that is most definitely a compliment!! Having guests carve at table suited our day so well – I think everyone found it lots of fun – and the mini puds went down a treat. Thank you also for managing to put the wedding cake tiers together without a disaster! Not sure how you did it?!

A very merry Christmas to you all and best wishes for 2017.

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for making our wedding run so smoothly! You guys are the best….the food and service was brilliant.  So many people commented on how great the beef was and everyone loved carving at the table.  How you can serve food like that out of a tiny kitchen on top of a hill is incredible…..thank you again.

We just wanted to get in touch to thank you for the fantastic job that you did for our wedding. We had the most amazing three nights (and even have sunshine!) and the food that you provided on Friday night, Saturday and the breakfast on Sunday was superb – everyone commented on how much they enjoyed it all (the coronation chicken, beef wellington, lemon meringue pies and scallops in particular are still being mentioned!)

Please pass on a special thanks to your dad Phil who was nothing short of amazing – everything ran very smoothly and he was so helpful even helping to sort a shirt out for my dad when he realised he’d forgotten his, he really went above and beyond to help to make our day perfect & so many people commented on the fantastic service the whole team provided, Phil was attentive without being obtrusive, which is a fantastic skill, and we can’t thank him enough! Thank you for all of your help in the run up to our big day with all the back and forth emails and for answering my 101 questions – and being so patient!  You helped to make the planning process very easy :-)

I would have no hesitation in recommending you to others.

I wanted to send you there biggest possible thank you to you and your team for providing amazing food and outstanding service for our wedding last Saturday.  I loved every dish and all the guests have praised the food, the chocolate pots were a particular hit.  the sharing starters and mains got everyone chatting and built a really cosy atmosphere.

The service was amazing, all the waiters and waitresses were efficient and very friendly.  i was very grateful of pails idea to have the toasts whilst the dessert was being served due to us getting behind on timings. My parents, me and Jyp were really impressed.

In a nutshell……

“When organising my wedding personally I had a lot of questions, Charlottes answer was always “not a problem”.  Charlotte Rhodes offered support and advice and went the extra mile to help at every step.  Booking, menu choice and payment processes were simple and flexible.  At the wedding the whole team laid out the room perfectly, exactly as I’d imagined.  The service was outstanding, the food was exceptional and the atmosphere this produced was wonderful. All my wedding guests were really impressed.

As a vegetarian, i was sick of having the nut roast at other peoples weddings so chose ‘around the world’ fully vegetarian menu.  I was worried some guests would complain that there was no meat but everyone raved about the food. Also as my (now husband) is gluten intolerant, most of the dishes were gluten free, it all tasted spectacular.

I would recommend Karen Rhodes Catering to everyone regardless of budget, wedding style, dietary requirements and venue. Their team made my wedding magically unforgettable, i can’t thank them enough.”

I had a wonderful evening Charlotte and again I can’t thank you enough.  Thanks again to you and the whole team.

Hello Charlotte,
Please accept my apologies for taking to so long to contact you, I can’t believe how quickly time passes.
Thank you so much for helping to make Kate and Andy’s wedding day so successful. Every aspect of your service was wonderful from the excellent efficient and friendly staff to the amazing food and the perfect interpretation of what we required for the day.
It was really lovely to relax and leave everything to you and your staff and to know that any query or concern would be dealt with immediately and politely and in particular to have some one to take responsibility for the timings through out the day.
Everything from the afternoon tea to the barbecue was perfect. Many  of our guests commented on the quality and perfection of the afternoon tea and the barbecue was great fun and a perfect end to the day.
Once again thank you for helping to make the day so perfect.

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for being the best caterers EVER!! We just thought you were incredible and everything was abaolutely seamless from start to finish. We had so many compliments about the food and had lots of people let us know that it was the best wedding food they had ever have. We were so worried about running over timewise and whether this has messed things around for you but it was all perfection and the best chicken pie Ive ever had. I almost shed a tear seeing people taking on the server role and chatting to people that they hadnt even met before over the food.
We will be recommending you to everyone and will never forget how incredible our wedding food was- memories we will cherish forever thanks to you. Your patience, professionalism and enthusiasm was just amazing Charlotte and made us feel so confident that we had made the best possible catering choice.
We cant thank you enough!
Loads of love,
Jayne & Alex
P.s photos to follow of course!!
