Thank you!
Thanks for all of your help in the build up to and on the day itself. All of the guests commented on the fantastic service and delicious food and we can’t disagree. There were always smiley faces on hand, glasses were always full and the food was all delicious. Thank you also for all of your help setting up the tables, putting out the cheese and all of little, but extremely important, add-ons in the service above and beyond just serving delicious food. It was so easy dealing with you in the build up to the day, you were always very friendly and professional and very patient with our last minute decisions and changes! Thank you also for arranging for the extra drinks to be sent up to one of the rooms for the ‘after-party’, Hope to speak again soon. Thank you once again

Thank you so much for your congratulations! Also, thank you so much for all of your help organising Sunday. We had so much fun and Tapenade were incredible throughout - from the food to the look of the venue and organisation - so thank you and your staff so much.

I wanted to say a HUGE thank you for being so amazing! Without you, I may have had a minor meltdown so I really appreciate you going above and beyond to keep the other suppliers in check and taking all of the set-up off my plate on the morning  Also pass on my thanks to the rest of the team, everyone was brilliant, as was the food (we’ve had so many compliments that it was the best wedding food ever)! I must admit that we were a little hesitant to go with Tapenade, as you were significantly more expensive than other suppliers (and we had to revise our budget due to the imminent arrival of Baby Castle!) but I can honestly say it was worth every penny! Thank you again, and all the best for the future!
