Lovejoy Catering and Events have been fantastic from start to finish. Reliable, friendly, professional and great value too. The food was delicious and they were so attentive on the day. Did not have to worry about them at all on the day truly excellent.

Tracy Bakonyvari, October 2019


We used Lovejoy Catering and Events for a charity event in 2019. Joey Lovejoy was appointed for our event and handling the evening. He was wonderful to work with, very professional and attentive.

The food and service was absolutely amazing. Well cooked and precisely presented plates of delicious food.

Overall, we would highly recommend this team to anyone looking to do a wedding or a party.

Jae Gadar, May 2020

I attended a charity event that one of my friends had organised in Chelmsford.
The food supplied by Lovjeoy Catering and Events was 5*. We had large canape type dishes, everything was fresh, hot, really tasty and came out really quickly.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lovejoy for future events.

Lovejoy Catering and Events are a very professional group of people with outstanding, quality food. I recently attended a charity event that they held and was so impressed with the whole experience! Couldn't recommend them anymore!

We used Lovejoy Catering for our wedding and we were not disappointed.

We loved the food and all our guests commented on how they thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The portion sizes were good and the value for money was excellent.

The staff was very helpful and the organisation was slick. I would 100% recommend them."

Lovejoy catered for our wedding back in September and we cannot thank them enough, the food was just incredible. We had so many compliments from our guests. We went for a bbq style Buffett for our breakfast, not only was it delicious, it was also presented so beautifully. Our evening food was pizza and chips & it went down so well!

The staff were so amazing from start to finish. We will always highly recommend lovejoy catering!

Paige Evans, Nov 22

Lovejoy catered for our wedding day and it was absolutely incredible. We have had so many comments on the food from all our guests and how delicious it was. Great value for money and I would highly recommend.

Joey was there the day before when we were setting up and the day of the wedding. Very hands on and super helpful. Amanda

Jacks, Oct 22

Joey & his team catered for our Wedding at Houchins in June 2022 & did a fantastic job!

I have an autoimmune condition, with lots of food sensitivities, and also allergies to fragrances. This was all smoothly dealt with & as the bride it was no problem at all to offer me a separate menu. They also ensured the staff on the day weren’t wearing fragrances, which was a HUGE help.

Everyone commented on how lovely the food was, especially the lamb rump!
We have since eaten at Joey’s restaurant ‘The George’ twice & had two delicious meals, which we honestly couldn’t fault. Joey’s attention to detail is impressive. Well done to the whole team! And Thank you!

Love & Best Wishes, Claire & James Brown xx Claire Brown, Sep 22
