Rhino Car Hire (worldwide!!)

Now then.. when Karen and I go on our extensive ‘research trips’ abroad, checking local cuisine, sampling wines, tracking down ingredients at local markets, buying exotic salt supplies – – we need a hire car – and we are as fussy about hire cars (there are too many dodgy deals out there!) as we are concerned to get food just right for you at your wedding.

So, when we go abroad, we always go straight to our friend Phil Partridge at Rhino Car Hire. Phil discovered what we do for a living and he OFFERED our clients up to 10% discount on car hire – not just for you and all your guests for the pre- and post- wedding travels but for your honeymoon too – that’s a discount on any car rental from over 40,000 locations worldwide… I know – we could hardly believe it either.

All you have to do is call Phil (with your Kemp & Kemp wedding number handy) on 0845 508 9845, or e-mail him on phil@rhinocarhire.com, and he will whizz back to you almost as fast as we whizz back to you!

Whiston Village Hall

What and Where. In the rolling hills between Cheadle and Ashbourne is the compact village of Whiston, and just on the fringes of the village, perched on the edge of a magnificent green valley is their amazing village hall. Its a huge modern structure built into the hill-side with masses of parking, a vast main hall, committee rooms (perfect for drinks if its wet outside), a bar and a kitchen.









Weddings. Not licensed for wedding ceremonies, but a wonderful venue for your wedding reception.

Clifton Rocks

Clifton Rocks will make your wedding rings to your own specific design – they’ll also make anything else you want. The enterprise is run by our WONDERFUL niece, Clare Chandler from her cool shop in Clifton, Bristol (makes a great excuse to visit Clifton!!). We LOVE Clare’s jewellery and always ask her to make anything we need.

Call the shop at 01179 731342 or e-mail them at info@cliftonrocks.co.uk, or visit the website at www.cliftonrocks.co.uk and see her stuff for yourself.

Clare offers 10% discount for Kemp & Kemp customers who have booked their wedding catering.

Distance is no object.. we always order everything by phone/e-mail and she always gets things spot on. A few years ago, she converted the back of my Grandad’s gold retirement watch (which was broken and gathering dust) into a great pair of cuff-links, a great way to keep valued family items in use.
