Some of the kind words we’ve received from our past clients

de Gournay @ Houghton Hall - September 2018 - 80 Guests

I am so sorry for not having written sooner, but I just wanted to thank you both so much for making last Friday such a such success. The food was delicious and it all ran so smoothly with no long waits and brilliant service. I think de Gournay were thrilled and everyone had fun!

So, a huge thank you … we are so grateful for making it perfect!

Wedding - Saxthorpe, Norfolk - September 2018 - 150 Guests

It was a pleasure to work with you from start to finish. One of the reasons I choose you was your responsiveness and professionalism whilst still retaining your personal touch and you carried this off throughout.

You were so relaxed about timings and given the situation with the vicar this enabled us to have a lovely reception as per your suggestion to lengthen it - the right decision given the lovely evening.

The food was superb - everything was spot on. The lamb fantastic and beautifully presented. We have had so many compliments about the food and a massive thank you for living up to our expectations and exceeding them. I only wish I could sit down and enjoy it all over again

Thank you for laying the tables so beautifully and taking out any stress from the day and all the other advice you gave us along the way. Your staff did a wonderful job. 

Thank you again and hope the rest of the wedding season isn't too hectic!!

Wedding - The Lady Elizabeth Wing, Holkham Hall, Norfolk - August 2018 - 120 Guests

Annabel and I just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did for us at and leading up to the wedding. You were an absolute dream to work with, taking on board all our suggestions and adding your own little touches and suggestions to create things that far out did our expectations. You really were by far and away our favourite vendor to deal with, as you made everything so easy, professional and transparent and helped us out with Holkham.

On the day the food was spectacular in both presentation and taste, our personal favourites were the soft shell crab canape baskets, the seafood starter platters and the magnificent desert table.  All the feedback that we have received from guests was just glowing about how great the food was.

A massive thank you and well done to you and all your staff who were also exceptional on the day, for making our wedding really special.

Wedding - Godwick Hall & Great Barn - August 2018 - 120 Guests

Thank you so much for making the worlds most fantastic wedding food. All of our guests have commented on how fantastic the canapés were and the main meal was honestly scrumptious. You really did make our wedding day that much more amazing by the incredible food you served. Not only were your catering staff the most polite, wonderful people, you also have made our wedding run smoothly and felt at ease with your catering recommendations. I look forward to seeing you again soon and tasting your delicious food once more.

Wedding Weekender - Wilderness Reserve, Suffolk - July 2018 - 5 Events from 60 - 270 Guests

A BIG THANK YOU.

I wanted to thank you for:

The entire process in the run up to the wedding. Working with you was effortless and I can only commend your creativity, professionalism, humour and flexibility. And for the wedding weekend itself, it was exactly what we wanted. The food was fun, simple, organic, local, sustainable, beautifully presented without being forced. It was fresh and above all delicious. In fact, the food is mentioned in most of the thank you cards we've received. Your team were great, polite and professional with a big smile and happy to be of service. 

Prior to the tasting, I was worried about the food as I'm such a fussy bitch and Sid said the only people that will notice if the food isn't up to standards is myself, my mum and my best friend Shokofeh (lawyer turned professional chef). And we were all delighted with it!

Thank you so much for the delicious food that you produced at Our Golden Wedding Party, and for the efficient and friendly manner in which it was served by your staff as they squeezed between the close tables.!  Many guests remarked that they knew the meal was going to be a delight after they had feasted on the superb canapés. And the cheeses were out of this world.

Wedding - Voewood, Holt - January 2018 - 90 Guests

Thank you so much for all you did to make our wedding last week such a wonderful success. The reception drinks and canapes were fantastic, with particular thanks for spontaneous tea and coffee which was much appreciated! The dinner was wonderful, with excellent portion sizes, gorgeous flavours and loads of really great comments during and after, particularly from those with dietary requirements. Thank you for your flexibility, professionalism, unflappability and going the extra mile - it was all massively appreciated and I think we were both totally unstressed by the whole thing.
