We are back from our honeymoon and just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the outstanding job you did at our wedding.
I have never been to a wedding and heard so many compliments about the food. Most people said they were the best canapés they had been served at a wedding and some said they were the best canapés they’ve had, full stop! The meal was delicious from the starter, right through to the Rocky Road. We took a few people by surprise with the Spicy Welsh sausage but nearly every plate was completely cleared (I know mine was!). The chocolate brownie was a huge success, which wasn’t a surprise after reading your previous testimonials and the evening food was just as good. All everyone kept saying was how tasty it was and how it seemed to keep on coming!
As I’ve already mentioned, the quality of all the food was exceptional, but I can not speak highly enough of your outstanding team. From the moment Joe and I entered the venue, Rachel was on hand to introduce herself and find out if there was anything we needed. Whilst we were being whisked around the venue having photos done, every time we turned round Rachel or one of the team was there making sure we had a drink and even put small plates of canapés aside for us so we didn’t miss out.
I am a Personal Assistant and organise events as part of my job and I can honestly say your team were the most polite, friendly, efficient and professional group of people I have encountered. There were lots of staff, however they all seemed to blend in to the background and you hardly knew they were there until you needed something and then they were with you immediately. Many went above and beyond to accommodate us and our guests, for example finding plain Yorkshire puddings with no beef, gravy or horseradish for my very fussy 3 year old niece! Anything that was asked of them was met with a smile and a nod of the head – nothing was too much trouble.
Our vegan guests commented in particular how lovely it was to be able to eat everything they were served for once. I hadn’t realised that you had prepared special items for them and your team had sought them out during the drinks reception to present them with their very own plates of canapés. Attention to detail like that is why I’m writing this email.
Our day ran like clockwork and I have to say that this was primarily down to yourself, Barry (who I did speak with briefly on the night to thank him personally), Rachel (did I mention she was wonderful!) and your amazing team of waiters and waitresses. I have not spoken to one person who attended the wedding who does not share these views and we have been asked for your name by several guests.
I can’t put in to words how you helped to make our day so special. You have been wonderful, right from our very first contact with you, the weeks leading up and throughout the day. You gave us so much confidence we knew the one thing we wouldn’t have to worry about was the catering, but you completely exceeded our expectations. I would recommend your services to anyone and am already considering ways to get you involved in any of my company’s corporate events.
Thank you once more for everything and I hope to speak with you again in the near future.
Just wanted to thank you so much for the food, service and support you offered before and during our big day at Maidens Barn. Nothing ever seemed too much trouble and you made us feel very special even though you must do hundreds of weddings. People still mention how wonderful the food and service was. Your team are a credit to you both. Thank you so very much.
