Our Testimonials

Working with Emma and Darren was an entirely constructive and smooth process. We felt like they got to know us and understand what was important to us in order to tailor their service in a way that worked brilliantly with our broader plans for the day. We were not rushed in any of our meetings, and all our email queries and revisions were dealt with in an amazing reassuring way by Emma. On the day, they were also able to deal effortlessly with last minute changes to timings and all the staff were exceptionally friendly and professional. Having worked with the team for a fairly extended length of time in the run up to our wedding, we really realised how skilful they have been in drawing on their experience to best help the individualised needs of clients. Whoever you are, just talk to them about what you’re after and before you know it, it will be happening.

We used HCWHY for our wedding reception and chose the barbecue menu. We found the company on the internet, liked the look of it and its eco credentials and hoped the service and food would be as good as the presentation of the website. We were very happy from start to finish. Very efficient, prompt and professional service from Emma during inquiries and planning. staff on the day were also very efficient and professional and the food very good. We ordered extra alike white table cloths and balloon, which was a nice touch and made things easier for us in terms of décor at venue.

Darren and the team are thoroughly professional but also nice with it. They answered every silly question quickly and accommodated all our wishes for our wedding day. The food was superb and they were extremely helpful. They helped make our wedding day be as we hoped it would be.

We used HCWHY for my husband’s surprise 60th evening birthday party in May for over 100 people at our house. The quality of the planning, organisation and the professionalism was superb. The original visit from Darren and the suggestions for bowl food really made the event, I couldn’t be more grateful. We thought it was outstanding and so many of our guests commented favourably on the lovely well cooked and piping hot food. The quantities were very generous.
Sylvia Arthur, 60th Birthday event with band in evening in our home


We really don’t think we could have asked for anymore from the team at HCWHY. we had struggled so much to find a good company who shared our values and valued our business, so it was really comforting to find HCWHY to cater for our wedding reception. It’s fair to say our expectations were pretty high, as i’ve been in the event industry for many years and we are both fond of good food and hospitality, but Emma and her team delivered nonetheless.

from the word go we were well looked after, with fast responses to our queries and immediate support with any suggestions we had. Nothing was too much trouble on the day; Emma and her team certainly went above and beyond to make our day more enjoyable. The food was great, the staff fantastic, and we are just to delighted to have found HCWHY for what was probably the most important party we will ever throw!

Adam and Emily McDonnell, Wedding Reception


Without HCWHY we would never have enjoyed our party so much. It was the first time I have used an event company for a party at home and I will definitely use HCWHY again. Once my guests arrived I did not have to think or worry about anything. Emma and her team were fantastic and the paella and pastries were delicious. Thank You all very much!
Jane Gibson, 40th Birthday Party


We really want to thank you for the excellent job you and all your staff did to make our party run smoothly. Everyone was extremely polite and helpful, and at times you did not even know they were there. Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the food, and the only problem we had, was I should have ordered more of it. We would certainly recommend you to our friends and in fact have already passed your details on to some of our guests. Once again thank you to everyone, excellent chefs, lovely waitresses and even the guy who picked it all up, well done.
Andrew and Lee Uttridge, 50th Birthday Party


Darren and his team are a real pleasure to deal with, from first contact right through delivery of excellent food to post-event clearing up. I cannot recommend them too highly – we have used them again and will continue to do so. A real star – for whom nothing seems too much trouble. Everything is done extremely well, with a smile!
Frank Thaxton, Birthday party


Perfectly organised and structured. Left me relaxed and able to enjoy the evening. An amazing clean up the following day. Really excellent service. Staff were brilliant and helpful.
Amy Crook, 21st Birthday Party


A thoroughly pleasant experience to have you cater for our event – it was all exactly as it said on the tin, and more. Many guests complimented the food and asked who you were. Thank you for my spotless kitchen and stocked fridge!
Friendly staff, perfectly on time and very calm kitchen – true professionals
Annelie, 50th and 23rd birthday party


HCWHY provided an exceptional private dinner for my wife’s 50th birthday. They took care of all the arrangements from organising a cake to decorating the house and table. A very professional service with exceptional food – they are very accommodating and will cater for all requirements
Craig Skelton, Birthday celebration


Dear Darren, Emma and all the staff at How Can We Help You.

Thank you so much for the time and energy you invested in ensuring my husbands 50th birthday was the perfect party! The food was absolutely delicious and has certainly become the talking point in Windsor this weekend.

Your suggestion of ‘bowl food’ to provide hot substantial food to our guests was a master stroke. As people were not required to sit down in order to eat, this meant the party and the dance floor were buzzing all the time. I still can’t believe how effortlessly you appear in a strange kitchen and manage to create fabulous food pretty much from scratch!

Thank you so much – we will definitely be in touch again

Dawn Ross, 50th Birthday party

Kate Kershaw, Wedding


HCWHY provided an excellent canapé and bar reception for my husbands 40th for 90 people. The marquee was good value and installed and removed with ease, the décor and add ons provided really helped to provide the perfect setting. The relaxed and efficient service was friendly and many guests remarked how great the team were. Thank you for helping to make this such a successful party, enabling us to enjoy the evening with our friends by leaving everything in your capable hands. We thoroughly recommend HCWHY!
Laura Sutton, 40th Birthday Party


Tasty food with impeccable service!
Liz & Keef Sloan, 40th Birthday Party


I’m happy for you to show my personal details and would be happy to speak to anyone about HCWHY’s services. Darren and his team helped our day be perfect, the food looked and tasted amazing and with great portion sizes for everyone.
From day one when we had a taster meal at the head office we knew that it would go well. Darren is always courteous, enthusiastic and can always come back to you with any answers you need. His team mirror his image and I had several compliments on our day regarding all of his staff. The food was perfect as was his team. 100% recommendation from me and my new wife!

Trevor Hobson, Birthday meal


I engaged How can we help you? to do the catering for my mother’s funeral. They were friendly and professional at all times, and more than happy to accommodate our dietry needs and shifting numbers. It was wonderful to have everything taken care of, leaving us free to entertain our guests as my mother would have wished.
Veronica Lett, Funeral


I cannot thank and praise Alana, Darren and the guys for all they have done. THEIR SERVICE WAS 10/10!!! – Everything was top class and exactly as per my high expectations! What a professional but down-to-earth team. It has been such a pleasure to work with such a great supplier, it really has – I was so chuffed we found you guys!
Victoria Debae, Wedding Reception


The quality of service provided by the HCWHY team, under the leadership of Darren Allen, is truly exceptional. From initial discussions of requirements – where they are quick not only to grasp the immediately obvious and articulated requirements but to understand and help clarify the not-so-clear and ancillary requirements; to the necessary adjustments in proposals as plans develop; to the preparations and setting up of every aspect of the particular event; to their service on the day, when they literally take charge, run an event with absolute courtesy, efficiency and friendliness – enabling you as client to simply enjoy what you had long been planning: in all these respects they inspire confidence and trust, enabling the event on the day not only to run smoothly but to be an enjoyable and unqualified success. I recommend HCWHY without reservation.
Ian Stevens, Wedding


We could not be happier with the service we received from HCWHY. We had never used a caterer before but had attended many catered events and knew what we were wanting. HCWHY made the whole process extremely straightforward and stress free. We were particularly impressed with how helpful, friendly and professional the staff were – and our guests commented on this as well. The food was delicious and beautifully presented and HCWHY just made everything ‘happen’. My husband and I were able to enjoy our son’s christening as much as any guest – just what we wanted. We would be very happy to recommend HCWHY and use them again in the future!
