“At Blame Frank we feel that event food should be flavorful, fun and freshly cooked with plenty of flare. We take them fancy international flavors and add our own spin so that we can dazzle your guests with foods that are sophisticated, but familiar; adventurous, but somehow comforting.” Blame Frank is one of our suppliers from our directory
, and we caught up with them to find out more about the people behind the business:
1. Please tell us a bit about you:
We are Will and Stef, soon-to-be-married couple and the owners of Blame Frank. We are caterers to the cool, based in Leighton Buzzard, and together with our close-knit team of talented and hard-working staff, we help people smash their wedding food goals!
2. What services do you provide?
We tailor our service to your needs, whatever kind of wedding you are planning. From canapés to wedding breakfast to evening munchies, or even bar services if that’s what you require. Whether you want us there for the whole day or just for the evening, we have a range of menu options for you to choose from, or will happily discuss a bespoke package for you. Each wedding is unique and we do everything we can to make yours just as you want it to be.
3. What inspired you to get into catering and events?
Will has wanted to be a chef basically as long as he’s been able to eat solid food. Perhaps before but he didn’t know what thoughts were then. Stef has a way with people and an encyclopedic knowledge of cocktail recipes. So, in the spirit of doing what you’re good at, we went into the events business together!
4. What can the couple expect to experience if they chose your services?
From your first contact with our events manager Kathryn, you can expect a friendly and organized service where communication is a priority and your wedding is treated with special care. We want your wedding to be as perfect as possible and whether you have special requests for menu items, or a hankering for a signature cocktail, we will collaborate with you to make your day exactly as you want it and unique to you.
5. Can you tell us a memorable or funny wedding experience you have had while working?
Weddings are high octane events, and there is always some funny story that comes out of them. From the father of the bride trying to help with the washing up while dressed in his best suit, to the groom sending the bride up to get second helpings for him because he’s embarrassed. But the most memorable moments, the ones that give you the best feeling, is when the couple gives you a big hug at the end of the day thanking you for everything you’ve done to make their day so special. That really makes you feel amazing and like all of our hard work has paid off.
6. When you’re not providing catering, what do you enjoy/where are you likely to be?
We love to travel, it’s how we met! So whenever we have time off we love to whisk ourselves away to some foreign clime, preferably hot, double preferably with a vibrant food culture. Many of our menus are inspired by foods we have eaten while on holiday, and we are always looking for new ideas.
7. Any planning tips you’d like to share with our Brides to Be?
Choosing suppliers is so important, not only to the running of your wedding day, but also to how well you enjoy it. There are so many options out there for couples planning their wedding, so make sure to do your research. Try and have a real conversation with potential suppliers and not just exchange emails, meet them in person if at all possible before you book. If you’re considering caterers, have a tasting. Find suppliers with whom you get along and can have a real, positive and collaborative relationship. Find people you like as people! It will make your life so much easier as you head into this intense and often stressful experience.
