Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special.  The food was amazing, the waiting staff were fabulous & Phils rescue skills were brilliant!!  We can’t thank you enough and will recommend you to everyone we know.  From start to finish it has been an absolute pleasure.

Thank you again, lots of love.

As life slowly returns to normal the happy couple left this morning for their honeymoon, we look back upon a truly memorable wedding day.  It was all so relaxed and easy and your experience in tactfully dealing with a lot of people was exemplary.

From the Australians have come many remarks of what a culture shock it was to go to a wedding where not even the staff wore jeans, while the English contingent was full of praise over the service that the girls provided.

I can’t thank you enough for all the help you gave us and the way in which you made it all seem so easy.  It was wonderful.

P.S I forgot to mention how delicious the meal was and that the Malva Pudding received full marks from the South African contingent.  Compliments to the Chef!!

I had a feeling from the first time we met that Jo had found what in my mums day would have been called a treasure (thats you)!! You stepped in and immediately hit the right balance of support and professionalism from that day onwards & Charlotte continued that.  This was commented on by many right through the to the superb wedding breakfast. I for one loved my veggie meal (I’d like your recipe?!!) and could of equally enjoyed the salmon too.  It all went very well and for that we are most grateful.  Thank you both once again for your contribution to what turned out to be a fabulous day.

We wanted to say a big thank you for the brilliant job you did at our wedding on 6th April at Knipe Hall.  We’ve had so many positive comments about your food and service and we really appreciate your hardwork and complete professionalism leading up to and during the wedding, you’ve been absolutely fantastic to work with!

~ Josie and Pete

We just wanted to say thank you so much for making our wedding day run smoothly.  We had a fantastic time and the sun shone!

We were very impressed with how you handled our wedding day.  Your communication has been excellent and helped us remain stress free.  It was great to feel in such safe hands as we were organising everything from such a long way away.

On the day itself your team were friendly and professional and looked after our guests extremely well.  Special mention goes to Phil for getting the falconry show to happen on time!  The food was delicios and our guests were all in agreement that you’d done a wonderful job.

Thanks again

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.

Thank you both so much for all you did to make Poppys wedding so special.  I am so glad we chose you to do the catering, everything was done to the best standard, all your staff were smiley and seemed happy in their work, even in the pouring rain!

The canapes were delicious and star studded and dinner was a huge success. The Thai curry went down a storm – ‘anything London can do, we can do better’.  Your seasonal pudding proved a talking point, mentioned in many a thank you letter!

Above all you did so much more and we had total confidence that you had everything under control.

With very best wishes xx
