    You and your teams were amazing on our wedding day.

    Hi Everyone,

    I am so sorry it has taken this long to get round to sending this email - life has been a whirlwind since the wedding.

    We would like to take this opportunity to say a MASSIVE thank you for all your help and support from day one up to the wedding. You and your teams were amazing on our wedding day. We have had been inundated with compliments for the food and the service. You have been very accommodating and we really appreciate that. The efficiency and professionalism of the team on the day was outstanding and went above and beyond helping where ever we needed it - from providing us with more prosecco to get us through the photo shoot to helping move tables so people could dance.

    Thank You again, we will be 100% recommending you to our friends and family. Milly

    Awesome wedding caterers!

    Sam and her team were absolutely wonderful in catering for our wedding in Nottingham recently, despite the problems of working in a small, old kitchen at our venue! They did everything they could to make the day run smoothly and the food was delicious, commented on by all our guests. They even did a special Vegan menu for one of our guests, and she said it was some of the very best Vegan food she'd ever eaten. From our first meeting with Sam, we felt looked after and paid attention to. Sam was even there to greet me as I arrived at the venue in my wedding dress, which was really sweet. Thankyou all for being so awesome and for lovely food! :)

    Just brilliant!

    Hi Sam and Robert!

    We wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did for us on our wedding day. The food and service were amazing and you went above and beyond to help us when we were stressing about the rain forecast!

    We loved the food so much! We didn’t have a taster session because we were short of time so even though we had complete trust in you, we didn’t really know what to expect. But it was so tasty and right up our street! That creamy mash! So many people have commented on that! It was beautifully presented too.

    All of our friends and family loved the food and the service just surpassed all of our expectations! The staff were so lovely and professional but also really relaxed and a good laugh too! The coped so well with our self-stocked/strange bar! What was the lady at the front of house? I can’t remember her name now… sorry, but she was just brilliant!

    Honestly, I don’t know what we would have done without Dimblebee’s on our wedding day. Sammy, you were so much more than a chef and I felt like you were our wedding planner and you completely put my mind at rest the day before the wedding when I felt like I had no idea what I was doing! Thank you for the help with the tables and the extra entrance/shelter – amazing that we didn’t need it in the end! So, thank you so much.

    We will definitely recommend your services to anyone who are looking for caterers. Can’t thank you enough!

    Anyway, that’s enough gushing – take it easy!

    Best wishes,
    Kate and Dev x

    Highly Recommended

    We were honestly shocked by the professionalism and standard of service you guys provided on Saturday. Everyone raves about the food, and how lovely all the staff were, including me. They always made an effort to come up to us and let us know the timings, if they could get us anything else etc. I really wasn’t expecting it to be such a fantastic experience.

    Thanks again, you guys really made the day special for us x

    A huge thank you

    Just writing to say a huge thank you for all your efforts on Saturday. Everything was absolutely perfect, we had so many compliments from our guests about how good the food was and how professional the staff were. We also really appreciated all the tidying up that you did at the end of the night, we woke up on Sunday morning to find almost nothing for us to do apart from load up the car with all our decorations and enjoy our first breakfast as a married couple. So thank you again!!

    The food was delicious

    We couldn't have asked for more from Dimblebee. Right from the initial meeting to the clear up at the end of the night, nothing was too much trouble. They made our day not only memorable but stress free. The food was all delicious and the service fantastic. We can't thank them enough!

    An utter delight

    I had the utter delight of working with Simon and the Dimblebee Catering Team for one of my couples' weddings in April and I could not sing their praises any more highly.
    From the very first email exchange until the very last glass was cleared on the day, they could not have been more efficient, professional and - most importantly for someone like me – a pure joy to work with.
    As a professional wedding coordinator, I work with a vast variety of catering companies, but Dimblebee Catering truly stand out.
    It's a finely honed skill to be able to combine impeccable service and exquisite food with a gloriously cheerful attitude.
    The Dimblebee Catering Crew have it all in spades and I'd be thrilled if I got to work with them again."

    Couldn't have ask for any more

    Honestly, We couldn't have asked for any more, so much so, I don't really know where to start. Right from the first contact, these guys have been amazing. we didn't make it easy, trying to organise our wedding from overseas, but Robert, Sam & the team have been brilliant every step of the way.

    Sam, Aimee and the team were so helpful during the day before, helping us get the marquee set up and everything in place. On the day everything ran absolutely great even when we were running late, nothing was a problem.

    The food was amazing, the team got everything absolutely spot on, from the canapes to the dinner right through to the evening BBQ, everything was just amazing.

    I really don't think the wedding would have half as good without these guys, they really felt like part of the wedding and were even up dancing later on! every guest commented how ace they all were.

    Absolutely brilliant from start to finish. Service and food all 5*

    Robert, Sam, Amiee, Philip and the team, thank you so so so so much from the new MR & MRS Hine!

    ps you have to get the Porkpie and cheese cake, you will never forgive yourself if you don't!

    I will not hesitate to recommend you!

    Wow. That was 'some wedding'! Thank you so much for the catering for Rob and Leah's wedding last Saturday. I have lost count of the number of people that have come up to me and spontaneously mentioned the quality of the food - snippets like - "wow, those canapés! Scallops on an edible spoon - genius!"; "that beef, melted in the mouth and just perfect!"; and "the Eton Mess in the Kilner Jar - a great idea".

    It is fair to say you wowed our guests, and you certainly both wowed me and proved me wrong! I thought having a 3 course 'choice' menu would be a challenge, and despite some last minute changes to guests (some avoidable, some less so!) and tables, you all coped brilliantly. I could not be more impressed.

    I will not hesitate to recommend you, and if you want me to write anything on your website, just let me know!

    Thank you again, and please pass on my thanks to ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE involved - special mention to the waiting staff who had to duck under tent poles - hope no one had a sore head on Sunday morning. I did, but that may have been for a different reason....

    Highly recommended

    We chose Dimblebee catering for our wedding on 8th September 2012. We had the wedding in a field and had up to 180 guests. We wanted the food to be from a local source and Sam knew exactly what we wanted from the start. She provided the staff throughout the day who were extremely helpful, polite and efficient. Our guests still comment on how amazing the food was and how smoothly the whole day went. The staff also helped us out by working on our bar throughout the evening. They were very understanding of what we wanted for the day and we cant thank them enough!!! So thanks again! Mr and Mrs Warwood.
