Wedding Catering Testimonials

Wedding Garden Party in Bath

We appointed Joanna to cater for 50 people at our wedding garden party in August. She was extremely proactive and helpful in advising us not only of food choices but also of all those other things that are important but easy to forget, for example, fruit for the Pimms and event timings.

Her menu was perfect for our day, her staff were courteous and efficient and our guests commented how delicious all the food was.

We highly recommend Jo for your event.

Teepee Wedding and Harvest Festival – October 2012

October, 2012

I had great pleasure in catering this wedding this weekend.

As you can see the setting and amenities were slightly unusual but this did not stop us making sure the venue looked lovely for the bride and groom.

The theme chosen was simple, reflecting the time of year and the tastes of their friends. Farmers certainly have hearty appetites which is to be allowed for in future!

As you can see, our catering tent was in keeping with the general theme but fortunately my delightful staff did not have to strip to loin cloths unlike Richard the Butler later that evening!

If you are planning on holding an event a little ‘off the beaten track’ then Joanna Parker Catering and Events is the Outdoor Wedding and Event Caterer for you!
