LOCAL SPOTLIGHT: KEMP & KEMP CATERING
We take a look at a local Staffs company with a serious flare for flavour
There’s always so much to be excited about when you’re planning (or attending) a wedding, but one of the most highly anticipated events (aside from the stag and hen, of course) has to be THE WEDDING BREAKFAST! So, we thought we’d better introduce you to one of the best caterers in the biz’ – and they just so happen to be Staffordshire locals – Kemp & Kemp!
With husband and wife duo Richard and Karen Kemp at the helm, Kemp & Kemp are pioneering a new standard of wedding catering with their unique style, bespoke service, and flavourful feasts. This dynamic duo have made it their mission to throw out the dusty, over-used rulebook of bland, fussy wedding catering to instead pursue their ambition of creating truly good food that enchants, surprises, and brings people together – what more could you want on your big day? In fact, they’ve been so successful in their quest, that they’ve taken – not just Staffordshire – but the whole of the UK by storm, earning rave reviews from couples all over the country who have well-and-truly fallen for their hearty, honest food.
Kemp & Kemp unashamedly push the boring wedding catering stereotypes out of the door; goodbye dry chicken, gloopy soup, soggy vegetables and tiny portions, and hello to a whole new world of flavour! They simply don’t do the word ‘pretentious’, instead they specialise in hearty platters overflowing with colour, flavour and joy, to create an atmospheric celebratory feast like no other. They have a whole range of tantalising inspirational menus to choose from and customise, whether you’re lusting after an entirely vegan wedding, a fairy-tale feast, summer delights or winter wonderland warmers, they absolutely have something for everyone and work closely with their couples to create their dream menu.
Kemp & Kemp vehemently disagree with the notion of squeezing couples into generic packages with boring, set menus, instead believing that weddings should be as unique as the individuals themselves – the food being no exception. So, whatever direction you decide to take with your theme, you can be confident that they’ll take your ideas, run with them, and produce something truly outstanding for you.
Kemp & Kemp draw inspiration for their dishes from all over the world, from exotic Mediterranean shores to English pub classics, they do it all – always impeccably presented, perfectly flavoured, and sustainably sourced, but don’t just take our word for it! Here’s what some of their couples have had to say:
“I am over the moon with how the day went, especially the catering! Everything was absolutely perfect, the food was amazing, the staff were brilliant and they really made it a special time.” – Adele & Will
“The food was amazing and with so many dietary requirements everyone was saying how well they had been accommodated. I was told by several of our guests that the food was the best they had ever had at a wedding. We were so pleased to have chosen you” – Emma & Gareth
“The Food!!! Well what can I say, everything was sensational. We had sharing boards to start, Porchetta, roast potatoes and veg, everything was cooked brilliantly and tasty everything was hot when served. The dessert was amazing. All our guests couldn’t believe it was all cooked in a marquee. I would recommend Kemp and Kemp to anyone.” – Charlotte & Ben
