While you are looking through the internet at wedding caterers in East Sussex for your Big Day, unsure whose web page to stop at, have you asked yourself “Who is behind kitchen doors…behind the company?” Circa Events kitchens are run by me, owner and director, chef Marc Bolger. Now approaching my mid forties, I still have the passion and drive, in my farm built kitchens on the Sussex Downs, to be one of the best out there. My selling point for Circa Events is simple, the catering business is in our blood, we are caterers who run some of Sussex most stunning wedding venues.
Our managers have worked at Michelin star restaurants, our chefs have cooked for the rich and famous in Rosette and AA awarded kitchens, Circa events have been covered in the national press.
Our waiting staff have been brought up in the catering world from a young age with their family (my lovely Anna x), all have experience of working in 5 star hotels across the world… my point … we all love to make guests smile and we can do this through the food, the service and the ” It’s never a problem” attitude that makes Circa Events tick.
Here at Circa Events we already have our menus and brochure for 2015-2016, these are just the starting point as there is so much out there for all to see, styles, tastes, new local produce, new ideas, and blogs. All these factors contribute to us making dishes that are amazing. After your free wedding consultation with me, where we discuss your menu ideas and thoughts for your Wedding Day, we will work on what you love to eat, your guest list, any dietary needs for the day , where you are getting married, and all the logistics for the day.
Everything can be taken care of by us with as much or as little input from you as you like. My thoughts are very simple in this blog, I am just trying to get across that although there are a lot of wedding caterers East Sussex I can honestly say that we know what we are doing… we are caterers with passion and experience and that is what you are paying for…. We love a great Wedding !
