I phoned Salt&Pepper Events solely from seeing their website so a bit risky I thought. However it was an excellent experience with a top notch and efficient, charming waiter sent to look after my dinner party for eight people.

Weddings

We come in handy in particular to couples that have decided to dry-hire a venue and will provide their own food and drinks. Apart from providing the waiting staff on the big day, we are happy to help you plan your big day.

  • Talking to you on the phone

    … as many times as needed, at times convenient to you (including evenings and weekends).

  • Right number of appropriately skilled staff

    Going through your plan for the day to ensure this is well thought hospitality wise and you have at all times not only sufficient staff, but the staff allocated to the right task.

  • Assisting with equipment hire

    Going through your equipment hire list to make sure you haven’t accidentally forgotten something and if needed recommend a supplier and liaise with them on your behalf.

  • Face-to-face meetings

    Meet face-to-face possibly at the venue. For this service we charge a flat £25+VAT fee.

Our guests were never short of drink or canapes and we were so pleased with how our showroom launch party went. This would not have been possible without such good, attentive service. 

Corporate

We understand that it is important for our staff to fit in with your brand identity and always take time to match the right candidates to any given event. We provide smart, reliable and experienced catering staff who speak fluent English and have friendly personalities.

If you are new to organising events and feel daunted by the prospect, we are happy to help with equipment hire, beverage quantities, ice deliveries and if necessary recommend a few selected London catering companies.

  • Gallery Events

    We have a wide portfolio of central London galleries we work with, including The Mall Galleries, Contini Art UK, Kallos Gallery, Gazelli Art House, Massimo de Carlo, Rosenfeld Porcini, White Rainbow Gallery, Victoria Miro, Griffin Gallery, Tafeta Gallery and others. Our typical gallery event is a private exhibition viewing for up to 600 people.
    Please, contact us to receive a client brochure with all the information you may need to organise a gallery event in London.

  • In-Store Events

    We acknowledge the importance of promotional in-store events and are happy to assist you in treating your clients and giving them a unique experience with your company. Conran Shop, Paul Smith and Anthropologie Europe are among the retailers we work for regularly.

  • Staff Parties

    Whether it’s after work drinks, a summer BBQ or a Christmas party, we would love to be a part of fun, you are organising for your team. Our knowledgeable and intuitive mixologists will add a special touch to your corporate get-together.

  • Fine Dining

    In addition to our general staff we have a strong team of professional butlers to serve board and business lunches, and formal dinners.

     

It was a new thing for us to have a waitress and Bethan was amazing, she fitted into quite a challenging situation, lots of people all around her whilst she was trying to work, it meant I actually enjoyed our party.

House Parties

Every weekend we cover a range of private house parties all over London and surrounding areas: birthday, engagement and house-warming parties being the most popular.

From serving prosecco, beers and wines to creating sophisticated cocktails in front of your family and friends; from mingling around with trays full of canapés to arranging an impressive display of your delicious home-made food, our friendly and efficient staff will ensure that all the guests are being looked after and that the event runs smoothly and according to your specifications.

When it comes to helping around our philosophy is “if you would ask a friend, you can ask us”. Once we arrive at your place the only thing you need to do is: delegate, relax and enjoy!

  • How We Can Help

    Provide reliable, personable and well-presented staff that speak fluent English; advise you on staffing levels, equipment needed and beverage quantities; provide equipment hire and catering through our partners.

  • What Our Staff Can Do

    Arrange party decorations; meet and greet your guests, take coats; serve drinks on arrival and top up during the evening; warm up and plate canapés and ready-made meals; do the occasional washing up, clear and tidy up your kitchen and party area before they leave.

I hired 2 waiters, 2 waitresses and a security person to help at my son’s 21st Birthday Party on New Year’s Eve. It was the first time I have used Salt&Pepper and I will definitely be using them again! The event couldn’t have gone more smoothly.

Celebration of Life

Let us take the stress and strain of serving guests with drinks and food at this sad time. With great attention to detail, our highly experienced staff will offer a sympathetic, efficient yet unobtrusive service on this important day. We will take control over the whole function at your home or at a venue of your choice, leaving you free to spend time with friends and family.

Phenomenal experience. We hired servers for our wedding party and the girls were so friendly and attentive that a number of guests mentioned how nice they were! They even went to the store when we were low on supplies.
