Experience the Magic

of Purple Chilli at Your Special Event

Whatever the occasion, Purple Chilli Events Catering will make your drinking and dining experience unforgettable on the special day.


Mark and the team provided the catering at our wedding at the end of May which we held at Yorkshire Heart Vineyard & Brewery, York. They were absolutely fantastic, the food was amazing, I finished all three courses and could have eaten more! All our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the food � it was amazing. The staff were brilliant also, they kept me calm the day before and helped me out in overcoming some decorating hurdles. They made sure that that my husband and I had canapés and had the opportunity to eat them even with the chaos of photographs been taken. We can’t thank them enough and would highly recommend them to anyone!

Thank you to Mark and all of your team, for the impeccable service, amazing organisation and superb food for our wedding reception on Saturday. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. It was difficult to choose our options for our big day, due to everything at the taster session being incredible. You guys went above and beyond to cater for all our needs and expectations. We would highly recommend you to everyone.

Thank you very much for doing such a good job on Saturday night. Everyone commented on how good the canapes, main course and desserts all were. The prawn canapes were exceptional!!! We will definately use you again.

Mr & Mrs R.

Thank you very much for our excellent catering services last week. The food was superb and your staff could not have been nicer. The whole thing was a great success and lots of friends have since enquired about you.

Hi Mark and all your staff at Purple Chilli Events Catering.

We cannot thank you enough for making our Wedding Day so special. Everyone commented on how amazing the meal and canapes were and how fabulous your waiting staff are, they just could not do enough to make sure everything ran like clockwork.

It was all wonderful.

Wedding Celebrations – Dunnington – 50 Guests August 2014.

Thank you. We had a wonderful day and can’t speak highly enough of the food and service which we received from Purple Chilli!

We were in the marquee had the atmosphere and was the best Sunday lunch that our guests had ever experienced!

The buffet was so generous, looked fantastic and tasted just as good as it looked. (I regretted having eaten so many canapés but they were absolutely gorgeous!) There was much praise from our guests for the meal and the canapés were singled out as being “fantastic”. Those who were drinking the wines were very happy indeed with the service as well as the wine and we were all really well looked after by the Purple Chilli team.

In conclusion, we would like to thank Mark for his helpful advice and suggestions during the putting together of this lunch. The whole thing was such a stress-free event for us and I hope it was for your team.

Many thanks

I would like to thank the Purple Chilli team for the fantastic food they created on our special day, the chefs patience was exemplary as we were over an hour late getting to the venue.

The food and service was better than we could have dreamed of, we will be using Purple Chilli for all of our future catering needs. Highly recommended for whatever the occasion.

Dear Dale

Sorry I haven’t been in touch since our Guildhall event – things have been very busy here with start of University term.

Just a note to say a big THANK YOU to you and your wonderful staff. The evening went very well (if a little behind schedule from our end!) – the canapes were fantastic, the wine was great, the service was perfect – your staff were brilliant, really easy to deal with, very professional and made the evening extra special. Very many of the conference delegates said how much they enjoyed the whole unique evening, and your catering certainly played a part in making the event a success. So thank you to you again and all your staff.

many thanks

Wedding and 6oth Birthday Celebrations, Mr/Mrs Revis, August Tockwith

I would like to send a big “Thank you” to Purple Chilli for the amazing catering at my daughter’s wedding celebration.

What a large selection of canapes we had to choose from. They were so good and beautifully presented that Mark and his team provided them for us again, two weeks later at my husband’s 60th birthday party.

Purple Chilli certainly has my recommendation for whatever the occasion.

Many thanks
