Karen Rhodes and her team were employed as our party organisers and caterers for a wedding on 6th May 2012. The wedding was at Ashton Memorial with a reception at a private property in Windermere. From the start of the process we were helped primarily by Charlotte (organisation and marquee) and Karen (food and service). Their communication was prompt and efficient and made sure that our suppliers were given the direction they needed and that we understood what we were getting.
An afternoon tea at the ceremony venue was arranged and the tea and champagne served were presented beautifully and served excellently. Karen’s team also served an extremely good three course wedding breakfast with a custom designed menu that was not easy to serve but made for a lot of fun. The meal ran to time and was better than could have been expected for 80 guests. The main course was superb.
A last word should be reserved for Charlotte Rhodes. She (in conjunction with the bride) took the lead role in organisation of the wedding and liaising with the various suppliers involved. Throughout the process she was very easy to deal with and very professional in her communications. Over the wedding weekend she was calming and helpful with any last minute preparations and her running of the service during the wedding breakfast would not have looked out of place from a maitre’d at a top London restaurant. Emma and I cannot recommend her work enough.
We would have absolutely no hesitation in using Karen Rhodes again and would certainly recommend them for any parties or functions in the region.
