What a wonderful day we had on Saturday. I’m not sure how we can thank you enough for all the work that you did towards our wedding day but it was truly the most amazing day. So many people told us how much they enjoyed the food and the service throughout the day and we, personally, are so happy with how the whole day went.

We were told during the day, multiple times, that this was the best wedding our guests had been to and that is in no small part due to the guidance, service and food that you provided.

Thank you for all of your support throughout the months leading up to this weekend, it was a long wait but well worth it and truly something we will treasure for the rest of our lives.

Good luck on the next events and we will be telling everyone how amazing you are!

Every detail was executed to perfection. THANK YOU!!!! You are an incredible bunch of people and you made it all possible.

Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into making Chloe & Doms Wedding Day absolutely amazing. It was fabulous, every aspect was unbelievably perfect and so professionally organized from the moment we arrived at Capesthorne. Compliments to the Chef, the food was divine down to every little detail and presentation, just wonderful. The staff were so courteous, helpful and immaculately dressed. The bar was fantastic as was the cocktail bar. The attention to detail was first class. All the guest said it was the best wedding they had ever been to, or ever likely go to again. The biggest thank you to you Sue for helping to make Chloe & Doms Wedding Day, a day to remember for the rest of their lives, it was MAGICAL!!!!!!!
With All Our Love & Best Wishes

I cannot thank you enough for how amazing all the staff were for our Wedding!
Especially Sue – she is an absolute star and a real credit to Chapman Holmes.
The upmost care and attention to detail was given in helping us create our bespoke wedding breakfast, canapés, and special toasts/cocktails. It was all absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. So many of our guests commented on how amazing the food was.
Sue made us feel so relaxed leading up to the wedding and also throughout the day – she helped the day run smoothly and we felt really looked after eg. ensuring my husband and I got some canapés and evening food in the midst of the business, photos and dancing which we were so grateful for.
An absolutely amazing day!
Thanks again for everything Sue!
Lots of love,

 Where do I even begin?! 

We had the most amazing wedding day at Capesthorne Hall and I truly believe that a big part of that was because of Chapman Holmes Catering. 

I contacted Sue after reserving our date at the venue and to us, she was more than just someone at a catering company, so much so that we’re still in touch now. 

I felt like we had hired a wedding planner. 

They went above and beyond to help us pick the best food for our guests, she gave us so many ideas and nothing we asked for was ever too much! 

The food was divine & all of our guests said the same to us. 

It was a pleasure to have her around on the day from start to finish. She knew the running order inside out which made us feel completely at ease. 

If I ever need a catering company again, I’ll be sure to use them. 

Thank you for everything!

We just wanted to say thank you so much for everything you did leading up to and on Saturday. It was an incredible day for us. Everything was literally perfect.

So, thank you!!!!!

Thom and Jeffrey

Thanks so much for everything last night, it was perfect. The food really made a great impression on everyone – just what we wanted. The showstopper was definitely the Tiramisu – we had at least 3 people tweet photos of it. The lollies were also fabulous and did a great job at drawing people back into the room so thanks for the effort to get that organised for us. The pies were absolutely delicious but a bit of a nightmare for a networking as they dribbled all over your hands – napkins were essential.

Overall it was delicious and we were entirely happy. The staff were fantastic and very efficient. Thanks also for clearing up the kitchen so well after – much appreciated.

Look forward to working together again in the future.


We all felt Nick’s birthday party was a great success. He loved every minute!

A great part of this success is due to Sue. She is such an outstanding jewel in your crown! Michael and your staff were all very much a part of the evening and we continue to talk and discuss every detail with family and friends. The gold-rimmed glasses were the icing on the cake.

A beautiful evening, thank you.

The Prince of Wales has asked me to thank you most sincerely for your contribution to the wonderful dinner at The Monastry in Manchester last Wednesday.

The Evening went extremely well and His Royal Highness thoroughly enjoyed himself. It was evident from the smooth running of the entire evening that your staff worked incredibly hard. Thank you for helping to make the event such a success!

 Please pass on The Prince of Wales’s heartfelt thanks and best wishes to all who were there.

Having officiated at two very prestigious events, only just recently, where Chapman Holmes where the catering company; I must give the highest possible praise to your staff led by the marvellous and efficient manager Sue, everything was spot on the table layout, the presentation and quality of the food and the service was the best I have ever seen.

The two occasions where a wedding at Thornton Manor on the 19th November ’11 and last evening (28th Nov ’11) at a Farwell Dinner held at Lancaster University.

Stephen Sanders, Toastmaster

We wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for making everything run smoothly on our wedding day. We had an amazing day and the fact that we didn’t have to worry about anything at the Palm House was, in no small part, down to you.

The help you gave us pre-wedding and ensuring everything ran smoothly on the day really was fantastic and we can’t understand why anyone would employ a wedding planner when they could have Sue and the food thrown in.

The Scottish Cities Alliance worked with Chapman Holmes for our inaugural year at MIPIM. The Alliance is a complex structure, encompassing seven cities as well as Scottish Government and Scottish Council for Development and Industry. As such, the needs of the Alliance can be varied and complicated as well as time consuming to meet. Chapman Holmes are consummate professionals in every element of their work.

The team, led by Sue, were extremely supportive, friendly and proficient in everything they undertook. All the team worked to a high standard and in a very short space of time developed excellent working relationships with the Alliance. In addition to flawless onsite support and catering, with exemplary attention to detail, the team also developed a range of city specific cocktails and canapés to promote Scotland’s food and drink sector. This brief was approached with creativity and skill, and the end product proved a real draw for visitors to the stand.

The team were a real pleasure to work with and managed a very efficient service in demanding conditions.

The event at Mendips last Thursday was a resounding success. Everyone from Yoko Ono to our own press team was impressed with the level of service and quality of the food your team provided. It was good working with you again and nice to know we were in such safe hands.
