What is your most memorable wedding?

There are too many to choose from and so many stand out, what is so lovely is that we are still in touch with so many of our brides and grooms and as they recommend us to their friends we get to see them all & their children again.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Friendly, professional, approachable, fabulous, current

What about your business are you most proud of?

Our reputation not only through our clients but fellow wedding suppliers, at the wedding awards the cheer for us when our name was read out went through the roof and was more amazing than when we were announced as winners

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

We always tell our couples its about two people who love each other getting married so when it all gets too much take some time out of the planning and get back on track, and then sit down with us and we will make sure that you leave us calm, happy & excited.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

A wedding where so many people had contributed with the flowers, decorations & favours it just became so personal & all about the couple.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

At our first meeting we discuss their ideas for the day, suggest timings & recommend other suppliers to build a dream team around then all over complimentary canapés & desserts, we send the plan on confirmation & then invite the couple to a full group tasting & are on hand then throughout the months, years ahead for support and on the day itself coordinate the day working with their venue or if at their home or dry hire venue we look after everything for them.

How would you wow the judges on Masterchef?

Our innovative food, presentation & incredible taste but it's also important to keep the food real for our couples and ensure it's all about them & not us

What is the most innovative dish you have created for a wedding?

Our take on a Cambodian Amok curry served as a starter..

What is the food of love?

Whatever makes you smile, everyone is different..though our baked cheesecakes make people very happy!

What is your secret ingredient?

Passion, dedication and a love of what we do!
