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.

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.

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!
