fabulous wedding food
Melissa was great from start to finish for our evening wedding catering. Our guests said it was ‘the best paella they had ever eaten’. Such good value for money for amazing food. Thanks Vamos. You made our wedding. Xx

Welcoming, professional and all round brilliant
We went with Vamos Paella for our wedding and we did not regret it!! We had a seafood, meat and vegetarian dish which all went down an absolute storm - so many of the guests were coming up to us to tell us how good the food was. We also ordered brownies which were served on slates to each table, and I was shocked to find that pretty much all of them got eaten! Melissa and co. were a pleasure to work with and gave great advice in the lead up to the big day. She was also extremely welcoming at her home for the tasting session. Could not recommend Vamos Paella enough!

Excellent food and a great Team
Melissa and the team at Vamos were great. The food for our wedding was just incredible. It has been a few months since our big day, and people are still commenting about how delicious it was. The process was easy leading up to the day. I think we changed our menu options numerous times when our RSVPs started to come back. Was also a fantastic day out to try the food before the wedding day. Vamos made the day easier by providing staff, table cloths, cutlery, and even helped us to set up on the day. Our Maitre d was attentive, sorting out the bar staff and waiters, as well as a bunch of excited wedding guests. Would definitely recommend!

10/10 for Vamos Paella (wedding catering)!
Melissa and Marcin catered for our wedding in September and we couldn't be more pleased that we chose them! They provided canapes, three different types of paella and a wedding cheese cake. Everything tasted delicious and all of our guests said how much they loved the food (and how generous the portions were)! You could tell straight away that the quality of the ingredients were top-notch. Melissa and Marcin provided us with an excellent service from start to finish - always very responsive, helpful and kind. Everything on the day ran smoothly - they arrived early and liaised with the two waiting staff we'd employed. We would also recommend the tasting session at Melissa's house which we did - this gave us a really great opportunity to try different paellas and canapes (and is very good value for the amount of food you can try)! Initially, we were only going to order the paellas and cheese cake, but were so blown away by the canapes during the tasting that we decided to order these too (the chorizo sausages are out of this world)! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Melissa and Marcin to cater for your event (and in fact many of our wedding guests asked for their details)!

Delicious food, excellent service.
We cannot thank Vamos enough for the wonderful food and service at our wedding. The paella's were authentic and delicious and the service from initial enquiry to our wedding was excellent. Melissa spent time on the phone going through our day and at times it felt like we had our own personal wedding planner! Friends and family commented on how great the food was and the day ran smoothly. Thanks again Melissa and Marcin! x
