It all starts with an enquiry, a potential venue and a possible date, then a year or so on, we get the pleasure of delivering a truly remarkable and memorable day for a beautiful couple. The tingle in your feet at the end of a wedding is more than worth it when you come into the office at the beginning of the week and receive such lovely and thankful emails.
‘We just wanted to say thank you SO much for a fantastic day on Saturday. You were truly amazing throughout the planning process and on the day itself. The way you managed the day for us was so appreciated – thank you! Do let us know where we can submit a first class review of Red.’
‘Red where amazing from the initial enquiries to the end of our big day. We got so much more than we expected. The staff made us feel like it was in turn a delight for them to be part of our wedding. The day went so smoothly and this was largely thanks to Sophie and team.’
The team at Red are extremely excited for our coming year of weddings, contact us today to discuss your wedding details and to find out more information!
We’ve received a lovely email from Ben & Hannah. We loved catering for their wedding at The Long Barn, on the weekend just gone!
We’re out on our honeymoon reminiscing about the wedding and we both can’t stop smiling!
We just want to say a big thank you to you and the whole Red Anywhere team – the food and service were exceptional! Our guests loved it and we were looked after brilliantly by you and the team.
Sorry we didn’t get a chance to say goodbye properly on the night but thank you again and we will certainly recommend Red Anywhere for any future events!
Ben + Hannah
As well as some very kind words from Hannah’s mum…
You beat me to it, Ben!
Yes, thank you, Imogen and team, SO much for the exceptional job you did… best of all I knew I could relax knowing you had everything in hand and knowing it would be to a very high but relaxed standard.
That’s two amazing weddings for our daughters at the beautiful barn, and like Hannah and Ben, Steve and I can’t stop smiling! It was an amazing weekend all round!
Very best wishes, Debbie
A weekend like no other… until the next time. This weekend just gone marked a first for RED Anywhere; Months and months of organisation, discussing menu choices and finalising timings, exchanging emails/calls with suppliers and being followed by a camera crew (thankfully myself and Sophie had filed our nails before being recorded folding napkins and setting up the marquee), allowed for the RED team, full of determination, to deliver our first Castle Warming Ball. As you may be able to imagine it was slightly chaotic at times.
Castle Goring, as you may already know if you’ve been following us on social media, is our current ongoing and exciting challenge. Our biggest challenge yet, we hope, has been marked with a huge green tick, on behalf of ourselves and Lady C – To deliver Lady C’s Castle Warming Party with unsurpassable everlasting impressions for Lady C and her guests. The party was in fact the first time that Lady Colin Campbell has ever experienced our food and what we do, which meant that our game faces were worn from the moment we stepped out of bed (after an added caffeine boost).
Praises were sung highly throughout the evening as guests were delivered sublime courses. Take a look at the bespoke menu designed for Lady C:
Foie Gras Pate, Smooth Foie Gras Pate, Toasted Brioche, Kumquat Chutney, Herb Salad
Duo of Guinea Fowl
Confit of the Leg, Breast Roasted and Sliced, Fondant Potato, Sussex Asparagus, Morel Mushroom Sauce
Theme on Chocolate
Salted Caramel Chocolate Tart, Double Chocolate Brownie, Chocolate Crumble, Raspberries and Raspberry Sorbet
Flower displays created by Jay Archer Floral Design, complimented the castle immensely!! The thought that went into each display was apparent to all guests who attended from the moment they walked through the castle doors, viewing the beautifully decorated stair case, to the entrance into the marquee (provided by our sister company Blank Canvas Marquees) for dining where the table centers were very cleverly thought out for the round table dining style.
Now this is me slightly going off on a tangent, but the spiral staircase decorated elegantly with foliage and dotted with lanterns/candles, has to be, for me, one of the top unique selling points for the castle and all it has to offer – just imagine the possibilities for photographers to be able to capture the stunning brides and handsome grooms.
So with the tables laid for service, flowers arranged and great food to come, there was only one thing needed to complete the feel to the event. Sophistication and elegance were two themes Lady C, Sophie and myself had been insuring we worked towards and we wouldn’t have been able to create and/or perfected this feel if it wasn’t for Elegant Stationery, who captured exactly what we wanted through table numbers, menus and name cards.
Lady C’s certainly knows how to host a party, once the alcohol had started taking effect and the dancing antics were in full swing, instead of the music coming to an end and guests departing, Daniel Clarke, our very own Master Chef of Great Britain, was on show cooking breakfast (Springs Smoked Salmon & Duck Scrambled Egg) at 2:30am, helping to soak up the alcohol already consumed to allow for more drinking and celebrations to continue into the even earlier hours of the morning.
It would be unfair of me to finish this blog without giving congratulations to all of our kitchen/back of house/front of house staff who helped us to not only deliver Lady Colin Campbell’s Castle Warming Party, but two beautiful weddings; one on Friday, which with the lightning and thunder storm takes the phrase ‘angels confetti’ to a whole new meaning, and another on Saturday for yet another stunning couple who’s big day was well and truly celebrated by all guests invited! So a big well done to all of the team and I’m sure you’ll be hearing from me soon with more updates about our busy and event filled weekends to come!
Wow what a great day for Sophie and Emma. We received two separate emails today with cracking testimonials from recent events… Both girls were mentioned by name and were praised highly for their work… It is so nice to receive praise after an event as I believe no one has to do that but for someone to think about it, then write must show that us striving to deliver great events is working!
Well Done ladies… keep up the good work!
Dan & Sophie
I wanted to get in touch with you regarding our event at the Royal Marines Museum on Friday evening and thank you all at Red Anywhere for the truly amazing service you provided us. I have nothing but praise for your staff who were headed up on the day by Sophie. As a military man I like precision and neatness and attention to detail (things that are not often available in this day and age) and I was so impressed to see the girls setting up the tables immaculately to almost millimetre precision. Sophie was excellent and nothing on the day was too much trouble and the waiting staff were professional, polite and a credit to your company. The food was wonderful and the whole event will be remembered for a very long time to come (if a little hazily due to the Port and Wine). Without your staff to assist it simply would have not been possible so I thank you all again for the amazing service we received. Sophie in particular deserves particular praise. I will certainly recommend you to anybody looking to host such an event.
A first class service from a great company. Well done!
To all the staff at red anywhere, Hasler Company Royal Marines thanks you most sincerely for your support to a wonderful

We would like to thank you and your team for the part you all played in the successful running of the

It’s so nice to get feedback from our clients be it good or bad (very rarely bad) makes what we do even more special…
We recently catered for a lovely couple at the Royal Marines Museum where we are exclusive caterers! Their wedding was a wonderful day, with no rain! lots of laughter and glorious food, drinks and service all reiterated in an email we received yesterday!
Dear Red Anywhere,
First and most important I wanted to say a massive big huge thank you to you and the team for all you did at the wedding a couple of weeks ago. Don’t know if you were actually there or not – certainly don’t remember seeing you, but the team did great and everyone loved the food. Heard nothing but complements all round! So again well done and thank you! Would have no problem recommending you, and in retrospect, having tasted the food and wine, have to say I think the package was very good value especially considering the alternatives we looked at.
Overall very pleased we had you guys over anyone else catering for us, in what was just the best location! Even the weather was even kind :) We had a great day.
This is a long one guys, so grab your hot chocolate (shouldn’t be saying that in July!) and snuggle up for an evening of entertainment with Red Anywhere’s very own Fairy Tale… I am going to chose my favourite parts of each event to entice you with!
Once upon a time in the beautiful seaside town of Littlehampton, two girls could be seen in an office discussing the frenzied weekend of yesteryear (2 days ago). It’s almost like they think it’s not easy to feed 450 people all at once when they insist on being in five different venues across Sussex and Hampshire! But it seems like they all have fun there at Red Anywhere. So hop aboard the magic carpet where Emma and Sophie will take you on the magical mystery tour of Saturday 30th June 2012 and show you just how their weekend occurred. We will begin our journey, starting at the Royal Marines Museum in Southsea.
The Royal Marines Museum is a special venue and one where Red is lucky enough to be the exclusive caterers for. This Saturday, Mark married his beautiful bride, Jozefin before the Red fairies flew into their places at the reception. Pimms was served to the wedding party upon their arrival at the Museum which had been beautifully decorated by our magical event planner friends Jemma and Donna. The best bit about this wedding was the pudding! They had not one, but two of Red’s famous desserts! Banoffee Pie in a Glass and Double Chocolate Brownie.
Now if that isn’t enough to get your taste buds excited I don’t know what is. The night went down well, and before you knew it, Red Anywhere were out and flying down the A27 towards Chichester for an evening of more Red fun…
Farbridge is our second stop of the evening, where you can see the beautiful barn nestled in the Sussex countryside, surrounded by baby lambs and daisies (or it would be if it was… you know… the right time of the year for baby lambs. But this is a fairy tale so go with it). Emma and Paul were a lovely couple to cater for on what was a rather wet and windy June day. But this didn’t stop our chefs and staff putting on a tip top show. I don’t want to say that the canapés magically appeared because the chefs actually put a lot of hard work into delivering such tasty food. So… after a lot of huffing and puffing, the canapés appeared in a flurry of ‘Oohs’ and ‘Ahhs’ from the excited guests. Crispy Duck with Spring Onion and Cucumber Salad with Hoi Sin Sauce, Leek and Potato Soup served in a shot glass with a straw and finally Flaked Salmon, Horseradish, Lime and Dill on Toast. This was a beautiful wedding, with the Bride and Groom looking amazing. When the clock finally struck 12, Red Anywhere was away as if they had never even been there (minus the full stomachs and happy guests).
