IT HAS RECENTLY BEEN ANNOUNCED THAT ROSS & ROSS FOOD HAVE BEEN CROWNED THE BEST WEDDING CATERERS IN THE UK FOR THE THIRD YEAR RUNNING!
WHAT IS THE UK WEDDING AWARDS?
Ross and ross win Best Wedding Caterer for the Third Year! Leading bridal brands Hitched, and You & Your Wedding come together every year to recognise the very best of the UK wedding industry. The UK Wedding Awards recognises various different categories within the wedding industry from beauty all the way through to photography and everything in between.
First of all, the awards open for businesses to enter into their category, and then a shortlist is created. Finally, the awards then re-open for public voting. Our votes mostly consist of our previous clients, and it’s a huge honour that they take the time out to vote.
HOW WE CELEBRATED THIS AMAZING ACHIEVEMENT!
Each year we’ve won has been incredibly meaningful to us, but this one has been the most special. Best Wedding Caterer for the third year is a great accolade. The team have worked extremely hard this year, with an increase in events and our partnership with additional venues. We all attended the awards at The Biltmore Mayfair on 13th February 2020 with much anticipation and hearing the news had us all up out of our seats (except Becca who was having her makeup done when they announced the news)!
TOP 5 REASONS WHY WE THINK WE WON…
1. Eco friendly
We at Ross and Ross Events are really keen to do what we can to pull our weight and give back to the planet.
By 2021 we pledge to be as plastic free as we possibly can. In the meantime, here are the little bits we do to try make a difference.
- We use Biodegradable straws only.
- We use Unbleached cocktail napkins with no harmful dyes.
- Our props are biodegradable. We use our recycled bamboo or plant matter forks, spoons and skewers across your event as standard.
- 90% of our produce is local. The only thing we bring in from slightly further afield is our fish. Even then, we make sure we use a sustainable fishing company from UK waters who don’t catch fish under a certain size or weight , using the correct fishing techniques , ensuring that the population of fish has time to replenish and maintained.
- We sort our waste. Quite self explanatory actually, but all of our waste; food, glass, plastic and paper is sorted at our HQ and disposed of correctly.
- We plant trees for every wedding we cater for with the Woodland Trust Association.
2. Extensive and Bespoke Menus
When a client initially approaches us to enquire about catering for their event, we will send them our brochure to give them an idea of menu ideas and costings. Each year Ross and the team spend months developing new recipes and ideas to keep our food current and as tasty as possible. Once they have decided that they like the look of our menu, we then regularly communicate with them to create a bespoke menu for their event.
We do this by regular communication, flexibility and a great understanding of what our clients want. Creating bespoke menus for our clients has always been a main priority for us. We always aim to provide everything our clients want on their special day.
3. Personal, all encompassing service
As well as providing excellent quality food, we spend a lot of time ensuring all of our couples are happy and well looked after throughout the whole process.
We fully understand how stressful it can be and do everything possible to make our part of the day as stress-free as possible. We’ve been around a long time and have a lot of experience, so nothing phases us! We think this may have something to do with our Best Wedding Caterer for the third year win!
4. We can ‘pop-up’ anywhere!
One of the many unique aspects to Ross & Ross Food is that we can ‘pop-up’ anywhere! The whole idea behind a ‘pop-up’ is that we can prepare the food in our kitchen and then bring the food to any location. For example, we have catered for events in gardens, fields and barns.
We have catered for many events in ‘unique’ locations and have been very successful. The idea behind the ‘pop-ups’ was for people to have a wonderful evening, taste our delicious food and see how flexible we are, with what we can provide.
5. We are preferred caterers in 13 venues!
Ross and Ross Food are preferred caterers in 13 stunning venues around the Cotswolds! Being a preferred caterer is a great honour, as it means other businesses recognise our excellent quality food and service. Working with different venues requires excellent communication and organisation. Our events team work extremely hard to uphold these relationships.
The team has a very ‘hands-on’ approach with all of our clients and venues, by regular communication. It is very important for us to keep our clients up to date with everything regarding their event. We have a great relationship with our venues and our partnerships make things much easier for couples.
