"We are waiting for our official thank you cards, but we would just like to say the biggest 'Thank You' to you all! From the day we did the tasting with you, we knew we would be in safe hands and Delightful Dining did not disappoint. All the food was amazing and of exceptional quality and we have had so many comments from our guests to this effect. We both managed to sample all the canapés (delicious!). Everyone was full and happy! My only disappointment was that by the time I got 5 minutes spare the BBQ had finished. Much to my annoyance, everyone has been telling me how delicious the burgers and hotdogs were! Sadly the weather was against us, but nobody noticed and every single person has told us they had the most brilliant day and didn't want for anything - food or drink wise! We would recommend you to anyone and will 100% use you again if the need arises (I'm trying to think of a reason for a big party). Thank you for everything.

"Thank you to Celia and the team for our fantastic wedding catering. Celia was professional, punctual and efficient and catered for our requirements throughout the planning process and on the big day. We really appreciated being able to sample menu options before making our choices. The food on the day was fantastic, cooked beautifully, well presented and all our guests commented on how much they enjoyed it."
Rosanna & Matt - Wedding Catering - August 2015

"Celia and her team were with us the whole way through our wedding planning and helped us put together a wonderful bespoke 3 course dinner for 150 people, plus canapes and drink service. Each dish was fantastic and different guests took time to individually praise every one of the dishes, which was no less than they deserved. The team were fabulously well organised, kept to perfect time, and were relaxed and completely professional, which really helped keep the stress levels down!"
Simon D - Wedding Catering - August 2015

"Delightful Dining were recommended to us by a friend and we definitely weren't disappointed. Celia goes about her business in the most professional way and has tonnes of experience when it comes to weddings, so you're definitely in good hands! She helped us immensely with all of the planning, giving us recommendations on what to do/what not to do on the day, which was very valuable! It was also really was great to have someone as capable as her in charge of the day, it really helps put your mind at ease. And above all, the food is AMAZING! Everyone commented on how good our canapes and dinner was, which was really important to us. They are a great company to work with and one I would highly recommend if you're looking for a friendly, reliable and talented caterer."

"Organising my wedding meal for 80 people was very daunting but Delightful Dining helped make my whole wedding experience far less stressful. I trusted Celia Marr and her team completely. Celia was more than happy to adjust the menu to suit what we had in mind and made a great suggestion to swap one of our meat options for the mains for a far tastier choice, which she rustled up quickly at our food tasting. It was very clear that Celia has extensive experience in catering for larger numbers of people, she thought of things a first time bride would not have done and went above the call of duty. She helped with everything from the timings and logistics of the day, to the preparation before and after the big day. The food tasted amazing!! Portion sizes were good and nothing was under or over cooked, they really know they’re stuff! We had so many compliments from our guests. The staff were very friendly, well presented and polite. One guy was particularly attentive to my dad for the whole day, bringing him his special alcohol free beers which was much appreciated. They were so professional we hardly noticed they were there! Tables were cleared quickly with no fuss and they worked extremely well around all the difficult decorations I had set out on the tables. I would highly recommend Delightful dining and look forward to working with them again in the future!"

"Celia and her team couldn't have done a better job - we loved it all! From meeting Celia, to discussing the venue and how the catering will work around it, and then planning, tasting and deciding on the menu - everything felt organised and well thought through! The food was amazing - even friends who run their own catering company said they were totally wowed, and guests said it was 'totally above par' for wedding food, setting the bar very, very high! We particularly loved the trio of desserts, plus some friends have since recreated the main course as they loved it so much. Would 100% recommend Celia for any events you may have coming up - fantastic through and through."

"I would like to say how impressed we were with Celia and Delightful Dining. To put things in context - Celia wasn't on our wedding venue's list of in-house caterers, so the venue insisted on charging us a further £1500 sur-charge for Celia to use their kitchen - and it was money well spent! We originally contacted half a dozen caterers but it was apparent very quickly that Celia had absolutely everything we were looking for. Celia has a very friendly and calming approach and understands perfectly how stressful weddings can be. She put us at ease very quickly and her confidence in managing our wedding catering was unequivocal. Celia could accommodate any budget and any type of food we wanted for our wedding from all the canapés and fizz to the 4 courses we had. When Celia came to our house to cook our menu choices for us - we knew there and then that we had to hire her. We had confit of duck, lamb rump and salmon as a choice of main and everybody at the wedding thought it was one of they best meals they ever had. Cooked to perfection. But it wasn't just the food - it was the whole dining experience with Celia's fantastic staff. They took all the pressure away and the day was perfect."

"I initially booked Delightful Dining because I had been so impressed with the food and service at my Sister's wedding a couple of years previous which Celia had catered for. Second time around and again, did not disappoint! Celia went above and beyond, thought of every little detail so that I didn't have to and personalised her usual wedding menu so that we could enjoy our favourite dessert on our special day. Celia's food is utterly delicious and best of all you get great sized portions of it to enjoy! Top restaurant quality, despite cooking for a huge group in a catering tent conditions. The waiting and bar staff were all helpful, polite and professional too. I would highly recommend Delightful Dining to anyone looking for great food for their wedding or function. 5 star!"

"Thanks to Celia and her wonderful team for making our wedding day so magnificent. The food was absolutely delicious and all our guests have been commenting on it ever since. The day was seamless and this was down to the fantastic staff."
Poppy B. - Wedding Catering

"Delightful Dining absolutely sums up the offering! With a bride who works in the drinks industry and as a couple, two people who love to cook amazing food, Celia had her work cut out. Not that you would have known it, she was a wonder to deal with from start to finish. Our pre-wedding tasting (delivered in thick snow) had proved that we had made a good choice. We loved the delicious dishes and "family style" serving suggestion to give our guests a huge choice and sticking to our budget. On the Big Day Celia was super organised, and everything was spot-on the mark, from the linens, to the team, to the wonderful food on our plates. Celia certainly runs a tight ship and we were actually ahead of schedule thanks to her incredible organisation! She has such a genuinely likeable nature that I can see why the venue rates her so highly. She devised a menu especially for us, not forgetting yummy food for the children, and tweaking everything to our exact requests. We have memories of one amazing wedding banquet."
Natasha N - Wedding Catering

"Delightful Dining catered for our wedding and we couldn't have been happier with the food and service. Celia was always on hand during the run up, offering advice and helping us create the menu we wanted. On the day everything was perfect and we received lots of compliments about the quality and selection of both the food and drinks. Lots of people told us they loved the menu and thought it was very 'us' and many told it was the best food they had ever eaten at a wedding! The team were great - service was efficient, friendly and all the staff went beyond the call of duty to welcome our guests and make sure everything was perfect - which meant we could really relax and enjoy our day."
Liz T. - Wedding Catering

"Celia and all the team at Delightful Dining were truly exceptional. They all went above the 'call of duty' and could not do enough for us. Our whole wedding day and the planning on the lead up to it was so smooth and that was mainly down to Celia! We felt that the whole package was excellently priced. The food was commented on by all of our guests, who loved it and still are talking about it two months later! The staff who worked along Celia were also outstanding, they could not do enough for us or our guests, and their service was worth even more than the maximum 5* rating I could give them! I would highly recommend Delightful Dining at every possible opportunity in the future, whether it be for a small or a large event."
Hannah P. - Wedding Catering

"Celia and the team at Delightful Dining were wonderful from start to finish. We could tell as soon as we met her for the tasting that her company would be ideal for our wedding. Celia was able to accommodate all our guests' dietary needs and at no extra cost. The food is the sort you would expect to find in a top-notch restaurant and the staff were extremely kind and courteous. We will be recommending Delightful Dining to all our family and friends!"
Gemma - Wedding Catering

"I know it is the morning after our wedding and I should not be on the computer but as soon as I woke up I wanted to let you know what an absolutely amazing job you did for us yesterday. So many people commented on the high standard of food and excellent service. You have been such a great support to me over the last few months and we are so thankful we found your wonderful catering service."
Nicky G. - Wedding Catering - Twyford, Berkshire

"We just wanted to take this opportunity to say an enormous thank you for making our day so fantastic. We were absolutely blown away by just how brilliant everything that you did for us was. You truly are an incredibly talented couple. The quality of your work is truly stunning and the standard of your food was just first class. The food from the canapés, to wedding breakfast to evening buffet was the best food we have ever had at any wedding, ever. We were so over the moon - so many guests told us the very same thing and our friends and family are still talking about how wonderful the food was."
Alison & Andrew - Wedding Catering - Guildford , Surrey

"Rachel and I wanted to express our thanks for the wonderful catering you provided on our wedding day. The food was of a quality you'd expect from a top restaurant, but from a small kitchen. We'd also like to say a big thank you to the waiting staff. They were so efficient they always made sure there was wine on the tables and champagne in our glasses, yet they were so discreet we hardly even noticed them."
Adam & Rachel - Wedding Catering - Hampton, Greater London

"The service by your team was superb, 120 guests and not one had an empty glass all day! The waiting staff were all friendly, polite and exceptionally efficient - it was easy to forget they were there until suddenly you realised your glass had been filled again. Our guests were commenting all evening (and the following day) on the quality of both the food and the service - clearly a job well done! Thank you to you all for making what could have been a thoroughly stressful day the best day of our lives, there was not a single thing that we would wish to change about what what you did for us, we couldn't fault it."
