Full Description
We are wedding caterers and event planners based in Grange-over-Sands, Cumbria. We started catering for weddings and events thirty years ago, in Cumbria, Cheshire and throughout the North West. We provide food for all types of events from birthday parties in family homes to huge corporate events. My parents Karen & Phil started Karen Rhodes Weddings & Events back in 1992 when I was only a baby. Mum presumed that as weddings only cover one day, with a bit of planning she could easily fit this around a small baby. How wrong can you be! Weddings take over your whole life, you are emotionally connected to the bride and her family for usually well over a year and are involved in nearly every decision made. You become their confidant and they become your friend.

I would highly recommend Karen Rhodes catering
“Charlotte and her team were absolutely amazing throughout the stressful time of being bride & groom to be during the Covid 19 pandemic. They were so accommodating and even when we asked them to cater at our new wedding date, in a completely different venue, with three days notice, they pulled out all the stops and created the most amazing three course meal, canapés and evening food. You knew you could just trust them to do a good job.. and they did. All the guests talked about how nice the food was during the wedding. Many people even made a point of telling us how much they enjoyed their meal in the days after the wedding. All the staff were so friendly, helpful and well organised. They were also very prepared with regards to risk assessments and ensured our guests felt safe in these strange times. I would highly recommend Karen Rhodes catering to anyone” Louisa & Thom – 26th September 2020

You’re the GOLD standard of caterers
14th March 2020 – New House Farm “Hi Charlotte Hope you’re keeping safe and well during this chaos! Just wanted to drop you a note to say a huge thank you for the superb job you and your team did at New House Farm on the 14th March. We knew you were good but seriously, you’re the GOLD standard of caterers. From the original booking enquiry through to menu planning, tasting and final touches to the day itself, it was a dream to work with you all. From the beginning, I was desperate to create an Italian feast and you, Karen and Lucy (and the chef of course) absolutely nailed it. I know I’m biased but it really was the best wedding meal ever. On the day.. You turned the room around so quickly, it looked beautiful, exactly how I pictured it. The service all day was excellent, the food incredible and plentiful and we really appreciate that you were so hands on all day managing the entire thing, including things outside of your brief; ensuring our suppliers were taken care of and even helping Chris with our DJ when he was an hour late! You took all the stress away. Your waitresses and chef who stayed on to do the evening food were brilliant – special shout out to them for being total dreams! I will recommend you to every bride getting married in the Lakes, any company looking to hold corporate events.. basically any chance I get to rave about you I will! Thank you for being that perfect blend of utterly professional and so warm, funny and understanding. We are gutted it’s all over but we have so many incredible memories to hold onto. If there’s anywhere we can post reviews that will be useful for you please do let me know – and if you have an address for us to send a card to when this madness is over that would be fantastic. Thank you again – it’s impossible to put into words how grateful we are! Take care Lauren and Chris xx”

Thank you for being so easy to work alongside
“Dear Charlotte and Team, Happy New Year! Tom and I wanted to take the opportunity to say a HUGE thank you, to you and your wonderful team for the catering and service you provided on the 7th December for our wedding at New House Farm. The food was wonderful, your team were so helpful throughout the day, so well presented and professional. It was lovely to meet your sister too, as part of your team! We also wanted to say thank you for being so easy to work alongside in the run up, and for supporting the food development process. I have attached a few photos you may want to see of the venue/menu etc… Unfortunately there wasn’t any of the food! We wish you all the best of luck for your 2020 events. Warmest Regards, Emilie and Tom”
