YEARS OF EXPERIENCE...

Catering for weddings is a particular strength of Simon Ayres from Samphire & Steel where he has been sought out by many customers through recommendations alone. Simon is skilled at the organisation of events such as weddings with his years of experience managing large events.

Weddings

Simons professional manner will leave you feeling completely at ease, taking the stress out of much of the planning of your very special day and leave you to concentrate on other priorities. 

Simon will work closely with you to ensure that your wedding day goes exactly to plan; from the organisation of the running of the day, to the hire of equipment, staff, menu design and ultimately exceptional quality food and presentation.

Unlike many venues with a limited and set choice of menu, Samphire & Steel will be completely flexible to your specific and unique requirements as you can design your menu to your exact taste and budget. This means that you can have your day exactly as you want it, simple!

Recommendations

We hired Simon to provide catering for our Wedding at Bolsover Castle in Derbyshire and Simon organised a full Hog Roast, which was very fitting for the Medieval surroundings. He also facilitated the Bar, with a cask of Real Ale, along with specially concocted Reception drinks. The unique catering helped to cap off a very special day for us and it wouldn't have been possible without Simon and I can highly recommend his restaurant menus generally and his outdoor catering in particular as ideal for any event.

The canapes were to die for! Everyone commented on the food at the wedding and I’m sure I won’t be the only one wanting to use Simon again. Heartily recommended.

Simon catered for our wedding and from start to spectacular finish he was brilliant throughout. Importantly for us the communication between us was crucial- Simon listened to our needs, made suggestions and delivered magnificently, presenting the food to a show-stopping standard. Simon came to us by recommendation and we would have absolutely no hesitation recommending him again having both been made incredibly happy by him and his work.
