Ask a question
What is your most memorable wedding?
There are so many weddings that stand out to us! It wouldn't be fair for us to choose just one, they're all unique in their own special way and we love being a part of that!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Exceptional Personal Service Seasonal Produce Imaginative Menus Events to be Remembered Sensational Food
What about your business are you most proud of?
We are most proud of the repeat custom we get. Many of our clients use our services time and time again, and we're so glad that we are able to build relationships with clients in this way. We also get lots of recommendations from previous clients, who tell their friends and family about us and the service they received.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Remember that your Wedding Breakfast is a focal point of your wedding day. Your guests will be discussing your Wedding Breakfast for years to come, so make sure you're happy with all aspects of the catering.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Again there are so many little quirks to each individual wedding. My personal favourite is when our H Van is used to surprise the Bride or Groom, its such a lovely touch and always makes for fantastic photos.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We like to get to know the couple's we work with, so after your initial enquiry we usually have a meeting to discuss your requirements further. From there we arrange a tasting, so that the couple can sample our delicious food. Then we send over their tailored quote based upon their ideas, then the couple will pay their deposit and it becomes a confirmed booking. Then we keep in touch over the following months to ensure everything is going to plan. We get those final details the month before the wedding and before you know it the day will be here! Our favourite part is receiving a thank you card at the end, we've even had flowers delivered before!
How would you wow the Judges on Masterchef?
You'll have to find that out yourselves!
What is the most innovative dish you have created for a wedding?
Brides and Grooms come to us often with their own unique ideas, whether that be a theme or a type of cuisine. We always aim to go one step further to create something truly special for each couple's day.
What is the food of love?
I'll leave you with a quote. " There is no love sincerer than the love of food".
What is your secret ingredient?
Well that would be telling...
