First and foremost, congratulations on your engagement !!! And thank you for considering The Dapper Catering Company for your wedding catering ; we have extensive experience catering for weddings and special events, so you're in good hands!

Obviously, your wedding is a very important day; you want to make sure that every detail is just right, and the celebration reflects who you are as a couple. We understand this, which is why we offer bespoke catering rather than "one size fits all" generic packages. We pride ourselves on cultivating a completely unique dining experience based on your theme & tastes, as well as any food intolerances or special requirements that need to be considered.

We offer a vast array of catering options including a fully equipped pizza and craft beer van, sweet and savoury canapes, sharing dishes, BBQ, traditional sit down wedding breakfast, and anything else you can imagine.

We are passionate about what we do, and because of that we only cater for a handful of weddings each year; it is important that we are able to dedicate our full attention to creating the perfect dining experience for you and your guests on your special day, and that is reflected in the feedback we receive from our clients.

In addition to menu creation and catering, we also have an events manager on hand to assist with any aspects of planning that you may require for your big day, as well as a dedicated team of servers available (inclusive of cost). We work with a selection of trusted suppliers where we are able to source linen, crockery, glasses, drinks and anything additional that may be required to enhance your dining experience; these items will be offered to you at the direct cost price we receive, and will be included in the quote we provide to you.

In terms of cost, our prices start from £12 per person, but can vary greatly, dependent on the menu choice, drinks and any added extras, but the price quoted is the price you will pay. Our events manager will be there on the day to ensure everything runs smoothly, as well as being available and easily contactable in the months beforehand to answer any questions you may have, big or small.

We would be honoured to be included in your special day; please get in touch if you would like additional information or to have a chat with us about any questions you may have.

Please avoid

Karl was due to cater our rehearsal dinner on 19th June 2023. We paid the balance of our bill with him, £957 and then tried to get in touch with him repeated amounts prior to the date to confirm details. On 13th June 2023 his wife emailed us to say they cannot cater our event or refund us our money because of personal circumstances. We have still not been refunded. If anyone needs proof of this I have emails and invoices. Please do not use this man.

Chef Karl Tyler is the perfect wedding caterer ... everyone should have their wedding food from Chef Karl Tyler.
23/09/2017 was the best day of our lives. Our outdoor tipi wedding was everything we'd dreamed of and hoped for. Our wedding breakfast from Chef Karl Tyler was wonderful. We received professional service from Karl from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble. We thought all the costs were very reasonable too. If you're considering him for your special day, consider no more ... book him! You won't be disappointed.
