As proud sponsors of the Stationery and Event Team of the Year category at The Wedding Industry Awards (TWIA), we’re excited to support and champion all of the small businesses who were involved in this year’s event.
While the confetti settles on another fabulous awards evening at TWIA, we caught up with Katie Harris of Ginger Catering Company – Regional Finalist at The Wedding Industry Awards.
Katie, tell us a bit about Ginger……
Ginger brings together the combined talents of 2 incredibly creative individuals – Matt is our Chef Director and his passion for food is phenomenal – when he is not cooking, he is researching and experimenting, making his dishes even more of a culinary delight! Sally, is our Events Director, and her creativity and expertise in running weddings and events is second to none. Her ability to make everything look incredibly beautiful (particularly our canape displays), along with the organisational skills to seamlessly run a function, means that together, with over 40 years of combined experience, they are the dream team!
We created Ginger Catering in 2016 and since that point Ginger has gone from strength to strength. The business continues to cement itself as a formidable and trusted supplier in the wedding industry. We take great pleasure in sharing our love for all things ‘catering’ with the world!
How has being involved in the TWIA affected your business?
Ginger were over the moon to be announced as Regional Finalists (South Central) in the Catering category of the TWIA after such a short time in the wedding industry – which is testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire Ginger team. It is such a prestigious award, that really stands out to couples looking for their dream wedding suppliers. We are so grateful for the opportunities that have come as a result of our TWIA journey.
What is a typical day working in the wedding industry like?
There is no denying that working as a caterer within the Wedding Industry is very hard work – the hours are long and often unsociable, but the pleasure derived from seeing a room full of wedding guests having the best day – laughing, eating and drinking, is just the best! Knowing that you have formed part of a memory bank that people will talk about for many years to come, is a really special feeling. Ginger Catering take a unique approach to the wedding industry, the food forms part of the entertainment, it sparks conversation, it makes people very happy, and we are very proud of our little business.
