About us


The Dinner Party Company is run by David Wakefield and his highly professional team of dedicated and loyal staff.

With over 25 years’ experience in the catering industry, David initially specialised in corporate event catering, covering areas such as; high profile business lunches, conferences and seminars, and gourmet dinner parties. Demand led him into the areas of wedding and family occasions, before the final icing on the cake – providing an exclusive dinner party service directly to the venue of your choice. 

David’s nothing-is-a-problem attitude has taken him in many directions, from providing the catering at a grand 15th Century castle wedding, to a fish ‘n’ chip and champagne themed corporate event, to a surprise dinner party for one ladies 40th in her own home. David’s expertise lies in treating each event as a clean slate that can be tailored to your individual requirements.

Outside of the catering world, David enjoys competitive running, taking part in organised races in and around the beautiful scenery of Cheshire and the Peak District and has completed marathons in many of the major cities in North America. He’s also taken part in ‘extreme running’ events, such as the ‘Marathon de Sables’and the North Pole Marathon. His ultimate dream is to run across America from New York to Los Angeles.  David lives near Macclesfield, Cheshire with his wife and two young children who would rather he didn’t take part in the extreme events!!

‘I sincerely love every minute of being a private caterer. On many occasions we’re part of a special event in someone’s life. It’s a great feeling knowing that you’ve contributed to making the event a success and a truly memorable experience through the services we offer.’

David Wakefield.
