Celia and her Delightful Dining team were absolutely fantastic and we couldn't thank them more for their services. From our first meeting with Celia, our food tasting (we wish we could have dinner at Celia's every week!) and through to the day - everything was brilliant! We chose to have the carvery and the quality and amount of food to chose from is something guests still talk to me about 6 weeks later when we talk about the day. Thank you to Celia and her team - the bride that just wanted to throw the biggest party of her life did truly that!

Celia and her team catered for our Diamond Wedding occasion. They worked with us from the beginning, suggesting many helpful ideas. Tables & chairs were ordered in, our colour scheme was followed and the meal itself was excellent. It was served hot from a relatively small kitchen. We and our guests were most impressed. The hired hall was left immaculate. We have very happy memories and are grateful for the professionalism shown throughout.

Delightful Dining made our Golden Wedding Anniversary lunch a very special occasion. Celia produced and served a delicious meal which was greatly enjoyed by all ages.

Thank you so much to Delightful Dining for making our day so wonderful! Celia's correspondence in the lead up to the day was great and she answered all our many questions- even the annoying ones! On the day we didn't have to worry about a thing; which is exactly what we wanted. The food is still talked about by all our guests- especially the Lamb Rump. Thank you again. Best Wishes Kate & Matt Jones (Hampton Court House- 27th July 2017)

Delightful Dining did the catering for our wedding. Celia was great to work with - open to new ideas; flexible and very personable. The staff on the day were brilliant and kept everything running smoothly. Most importantly, the food was delicious! We had so many comments in thank you letters to say how much people enjoyed it and that they would have happily paid to eat the food!

We cannot rate Celia, Alex and Delightful Dining highly enough. They provided the catering and bar service for our wedding in November 2017. Not only was the food and service on our wedding day superb, but Celia's guidance and advice in the lead up to the big day was invaluable. She was honest about what would and would not work, and provided us with helpful and thoughtful suggestions about the catering, and other aspects of the wedding. The tables were set beautifully, and their staff were professional and courteous throughout the day. We had a number of comments from our guests about how fabulous (and plentiful) the food was. If you are thinking of booking Delightful Dining for your event, then we would encourage you to do so.

Celia and her team catered for our wedding in August 2017 and it couldn't have been better. Delicious food, wonderfully presented and served - we received compliments from our guests for weeks afterwards. It was really easy to work with Celia to devise our menu and she couldn't have been more thoughtful as we rushed to get everything arranged last minute! Highly recommend.

We used Delightful Dining for our wedding at Hampton Court House in August 2017. Celia was really helpful in the build up to the day, had some great advice and knew the venue extremely well which helped with the planning. Celia also organised a tasting session for us, the best man and maid of honour, so we got to try all sorts of different food which was all lovely. We therefore knew what to expect on the day but we had several compliments from guests, many saying it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding, both in terms of quality and quantity! Really happy therefore with Delightful Dining and would happily recommend to a friend.

Jamie and I had our wedding at Hampton court house Friday 1st of September 2017. Celia and her team catered for our 105 guests who we were both worried about pleasing, being Greek/Italian we really wanted our guests to enjoy the food and feel at ease. We couldn't fault this catering company one bit. Both working in the customer service industry it's easy to pick faults it service, yet we couldn't find one. Celia is the one person who you could dream of to run your wedding weddding. She is efficient, fast and most importantly LISTENS!! Our guests, all 105 of them complemented how amazing the food was and wholesome it was over and over again! We can't recommend delightful dining enough. Thank you so much for making our day run smoothly with your fun, friendly and efficient team. Celia you are a credit to this company. Many thanks Nikola and Jamie

Recently, Celia and her staff provided the catering for my wedding, roughly 75 adults and 9 children. In all honesty, I do not know how the day would have run without her. From start to finish, she was nothing but friendly, professional, organised and to the point. Clearly, she has been doing this for a number of years, and she has it down to a fine art.

I could gush about how wonderful and delicious the food was, or how stunning the evening buffet was, but the service provided was so much more than that. What really stood out for us was the care and attention to detail which went into the organisation. It meant that we were not stressed in the run up, as she had already dealt with most issues. On the day, the whole system ran like a well oiled machine. Her staff were incredibly helpful and went above and beyond expectations for us.

Honestly, I could not fully do justice to Delightful Dining, they made our day a true success.

Delightful Dining catered for my son's 21st birthday party. From the delicious canapés at the start of the evening to the final pudding course at the end of the dinner it was superb. The food was outstanding, how they managed to produce such an excellent meal in such basic facilities - a small catering section of a marquee - was a marvel. Everything was cooked to perfection, and the main course of duck had many of our guests commenting on it - it was perfectly crispy on the the outside and tender on the inside, just wonderful! The staff were excellent and seemed to do everything effortlessly and they coped so well with everything. Alex and his team did a great job!

Celia and the team catered for our wedding at the beginning of March and the service and quality received before, during and after the day was nothing short of flawless. Going far beyond the 'call of duty', all the effort and support made the day run like clockwork, we were extremely great full for that. We would highly recommend Celia and the team for any event, especially wedding. Reproducing the food to the same exceptional standard as per the taster for 100 guests was truly sensational.

There were several compliments form our guests about the food (many of which are self confessed foodies). The varying starters and mains prepared and cooked to perfection with such generous portions put a smile on all our guests faces.

Please pass on our gratitude for the day to everyone that helped to make it so perfect.

When looking for a caterer for my 60th Birthday party, i decided to stick with Celia, who had catered our daughter's wedding 2 years previously and done a brilliant job. I know am really fussy as I do a lot of very high-end entertaining with my job, but Celia didn't let me down. She was also really helpful on recommending on line resources to look for other items such as a stretch tent. On the day, everything went smoothly and the team that Celia brought with her to serve food and drinks were friendly, helpful and efficient. Celia's food made the evening into one that I could relax and enjoy to the full. I will use Celia again without hesitation.

Celia and Delightful Dining managed the food and evening bar at at our wedding at Hampton Court House. We could not recommend them highly enough. Celia was extremely helpful from start to finish and was more than happy to spend more time with us to guide us through all the things we needed to do such as timings, cake decoration, food choices, food and drink quantities etc...The food was beautiful, filling and served very professionally and we received so many compliments from our guests. Celia is down to earth and a pleasure to work with. Our guests also appreciated how friendly and fun all the staff were and felt that the team take pride and pleasure in what they do.

All the staff were really friendly and helpful and efficient. Celia's help in the run up to the wedding was invaluable and we really
appreciated her wisdom! We'd highly recommend Delightful Dining.

We had the pleasure to working with Celia and her team on our most special day on November 5th 2016 for our wedding. On the lead up to the wedding, Delightful Dining was extremely helpful and flexible with regards to menu options, accommodated any special requests and offered advice on drink selections and amounts. On the day the food was superb with many of our guests commenting how delicious it was. Would not hesitate in recommending Delightful Dining for any occasion. Five stars from us. Allison and Marc

Delightful Dining were the caterers for our wedding at Hampton Court House on 19 November 2016 and my husband and I don’t know where to start with feedback! The first thing we would say is that the food was absolutely incredible and the comments we each received from guests matched our thoughts entirely. As one of our ‘seasoned’ wedding guests commented: “I have been to many weddings in my time and I judge every wedding by my stomach; and yours beats them all”. Everything from the canapes, to the starter (a choice of antipasti or a trio of fish) to the main courses (a choice of either lamb or salmon) to the dessert (a trio of cheesecake, profiterole and fruit salad), everything was scrumptious! The evening food was just as fabulous and beautifully presented.

The other important thing to say is that Celia and her team could not have been more brilliant on the day: our guests’ glasses were always topped up, last-minute menu changes were handled magically (e.g. a grandmother who requested chicken whilst at the top table… a request which was met within 10 minutes and was just as delicious as the other main courses!), the wedding breakfast was served perfectly and on time (mostly thanks to Celia’s input and exceptional timing recommendations!) and the evening bar was manned with a great level of professionalism in the face of some rather well oiled wedding guests!

Finally, Celia is beyond a caterer; we had been told that weddings can be rather stressful occasions to organise and ours was no exception. Celia is absolutely the person you want at your side helping you through it. She is down-to-earth and handled every hiccup we presented her with along the way in such a lovely down-to-earth, calm and kind way we could not have done it without her.

We cannot recommend Celia and Delightful Dining highly enough; thank you so much for organising and executing our wedding reception so perfectly!

From the moment Delightful Dining arrived for our 50th Birthday event I felt in safe hands, they took full control allowing us time to have a very enjoyable evening with friends. They made planning for the event as simple as possible with some great dinner party guidance and menu recommendations. From the Canapés, starters, mains to the Desserts and cheese, each course was absolutely fantastic and very much enjoyed by everyone. Thank you so much for such a great evening Delightful Dining.

We used Delightful Dining for our Wedding in April 2018. In the lead up to the event Celia was so helpful in the planning, giving great advice from her experience of events and putting on a delicious tasting for us. On the big day itself Celia and all the team were superb with all our guests complimenting how fantastic the food was with matching service to keep the party going later. We couldn't recommend Celia and the team enough, thanks for making our big day so special!

We hired Celia and her team to cater our wedding reception on June 23rd. Food is obviously very important at a wedding reception, and we considered many caterers from the beginning of the planning process. I'm so happy we ended up with Delightful Dining, as I don't think we could have hired anyone better. We received many compliments on how great the food was and how great the staff were. The canapés were delicious and the carvery buffet was wonderful. The potatoes are seriously the best. Celia was extremely efficient and very easy to work with and she really took on board our suggestions but also helped guide us with her knowledge and experience. We were really pleased with Delightful Dining and would absolutely recommend them to anyone who is hosting an event.
