Didsbury Events and Catering Company is a bespoke catering service specialising in weddings, corporate evetns and private parties.

The company was born through the frustrations of owners, Simon & Lisa, with caterers and venues when they were planing their own wedding. As foodies, working in the industry, they were desperate to have some involvement in the menu for their special day. They had consultations with all the suppliers, for every other aspect of the day, but they felt they were presented with bland, generic, inflexible menus for what was a really important part of their celebration.

The philosophy of Didsbury Events and Catering Co is to start by finding exactly what you, the client, wants. What follows is a journey that leads to a unique menu. A menu that hasn't been used for previous clients and one that is a reflection of you.

Quality ingredients, meticulous planning and great service are all a given, but Didsbury Events & Catering Co believe that you should have control when it comes to planning food and drink for you and your guests. They understand too, that some clients will appreciate a little guidance, to help start the consultation...
