“I attended the Lovejoy Catering and Events and was absolutely blown away by the entire event, from the décor of the room, to the overall ambience and atmosphere of the evening.

From start to finish, everything ran smoothly, the service was impeccable, the staff were kind and efficient and the food was beautifully presented and first class. The evening flowed well and the transition from the dinner to the disco was effortless, and the energy of the guests was lifted by some excellent songs from the DJ.

A huge thank you to Joey and his team for such a wonderful evening, cannot wait to come to your next event and highly recommend Lovejoy Catering and Events for any event”

“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 have had the privilege of attending a number of Lovejoy Catering and Events events and have always left blown away with the attention to detail and lengths Joey and his staff go to in order to make sure everyone is having the best time.

All the staff are super friendly and Joey adds such a level of professionalism. Lovejoy Catering and Events has raised lots of money for charity and I’m a big fan of the charity events because everyone makes an effort to look great, there’s a casino, comedians, inspirational speakers and plenty of people to network with.

Roll on the next event”

All of your staff were totally happy to take those things in their stride. Considering we were a group of over 100 people, not a single person complained of being hungry at any point across the week. Very happy clients!”

Caroline Williams, May 2019, Facebook

“Fantastic service from start to finish. As soon as I began conversations around the event, Lovejoy Catering and Events assisted with everything from suggesting menus, to timings, to how they could prepare the food and serve everyone given the space. The event itself was seamless. They were in constant communication around timings and next courses and cleared up quickly once desserts had gone out to leave us to party the night away. Most of all the food was excellent!!!”

Chef Dan’s food was absolutely show stopping, delicious and beautifully presented! The staff were friendly, polite and professional, a huge thank you to Joey and Events Manager Jen – they really went the extra mile and made sure everyone was happy throughout the evening.

“I used Lovejoy Catering and Events for my son Ace’s 1st birthday party, firstly Genna who was our caterer for the day was on time, set up before hand and ensured we were happy with what was about to be served, personally I highly recommend Lovejoy Catering and Events, Jen our events manager was very helpful and accommodating, her professionalism speaks for itself, top class and ensured all was well through out the day, as for the customer service, now that is what makes Lovejoy Catering and Events stand out from the rest, as well as the good food lets not forget that, the service I received from both Jen and Joey was first class.

The food well where do I start, Fresh, Enjoyable, Tasty and just what we required, 90 % of our guests mentioned how nice the food was, that says it all and they even asked for details for their own upcoming events, I will use them again.

Finally, I urge you, if you’re looking for a good catering service, look no further than Lovejoy Catering and Events. They offer value for money and are professional, helpful, accommodating, reliable, trustworthy and, most importantly, they have lovely food.
