There are many caterers in the South West, so what sets Oaktree Occasions apart from the rest? The answer is you! We personalise our service to you, taking the time to get to know you and understand what you are looking for. It is something we pride ourselves on and we receive positive comments about from every client.
When we receive your first enquiry, we always aim to respond within 24 hours. If we are busy out at an event, we will send you an email to let you know that we may take a bit longer than normal. As soon as we have ascertained whether we are available and have an understanding of what you are looking for, we will send you our collection of menus and prices.
After forwarding your ideal menu, level and style of service you require, we then put together your very own quotation, unique to you and your requirements, with everything laid out in an easy to understand format.
From then onward, we will continue to respond to emails as quickly as possible and are always on the end of a phone if you would like to talk ideas through. We are also more than happy for clients to come and see us before and after booking us.
Tastings are available, bespoke to your wedding. If you are considering canapes, we will prepare a selection of your favourites for you to try and narrow down to final selection. Our tastings give you a full meal, allowing you to experience how it will be presented on the day. We can accommodate up to 6 guests for tastings, if you have secured your booking with us the couple are free of charge with a small charge for additional guests, unlike many other caterers we do not merge you with other brides having similar menus, with teeny tiny bowls of what your menu is going to consist of. This approach takes Caroline a considerable amount of time, at least a whole day- but you know what? That’s how we think it should be, we are blessed you have chosen us on one of the most important days of your life to look after you and your guests, so you deserve our undivided attention to make sure all the details are covered.
The Wedding Detail
As they say-the devil is in the detail-every single wedding we cater for has an in depth plan to go along side, we live and die by it!
Jo will assemble this document, it contains everything related to your day, what, when, where, arrival drinks, timings, who your other suppliers are and whose doing what, confirmed menu, the equipment we are supplying, along with the all important timeline we have agreed, is Jo acting as Master of Ceremonies and a myriad of other tiny details that can so easily be overlooked but are so important to you having a perfect day where all the stress is taken away . In fact its very common for all the other suppliers to always come to us at your wedding to ask us “what time are they sitting down” etc, etc…..
After many years of experience in the catering and wedding industry, it is still our pleasure and privilege to be a part of your special day, giving each bride and groom, there families and guests a day to remember for all the right reasons!
The Big Day!
Actually, the day before as well! Jo and the team will be with you the day before to go through any last minute details with you or your designated person, and will lay up the tables for you to add your finishing touches too, also if your florist and cake are being delivered on The Big Day we can pass on your instructions to these suppliers for you.
On the wedding day itself, we will be on site early and well all you need to do is relax and enjoy one of the most important days of your life with your life partner, loved ones and friends, leaving us to take care of all the details for you, and because of our personalised approach beforehand, gaining all the details we will guide you through effortlessly, its a cliche, but we really are more than just caterers!
