Our History

Oaktree Occasions was launched in 2013, but the story starts way before that. Jo and Caroline previously worked and learned their trade in a wide range of prestigious catering and hospitality roles in Devon and Cornwall. Immediately before setting up Oaktree Occasions they ran a successful restaurant together, but decided to take the plunge and launch a catering business following numerous requests to offer their services for a much wider range of events.
