SEPTEMBER '17 – Wedding – 120 Guests

“I don't know how to tell you how wonderful you made my wedding. It's hard to believe it unless you saw it for yourself, the mountains and mountains of letters and calls that all shout about the amazing food. Truly. And quite rightly. It was breath taking and everyone was blown away by it. Utterly incredible.

On top of that was how you looked after my wonderful mummy. You really did and because of your kindness and attention to detail, all matched to her taste, she was a very happy mother of the bride!

And as far as R and I are concerned? Well R just kept saying "wow" over and over, and I had the happiest day of my life being spoilt by all your gorgeous staff who were so sweet!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

We had nothing but compliments and praise on both days from people who said they had never had a more delicious meal or such great canapes… All of which was true!

“Thank you so much for everything you did for the wedding as I know these things take a lot of preparation and hard work and it really shone through how professional your set up is.

The food was second to none – we were absolutely thrilled with the end result. All the notes we received from friends and family and comments on the day were that they all thought it was the best wedding food they had every had!! Praise indeed given how many weddings we all seem to be attending!!

From the outset we both knew we had made the right catering choice. Your menus were by far the most appealing and then when we met I just knew everything would be sorted and had complete faith that I could relax in the knowledge you had it all in hand.

On a related note your staff were just so lovely and helpful all the day though which helped add a really personal feel to the day.

I honestly couldn't have wished for anything more on the day and I totally relaxed knowing it was all smooth sailing with you behind the scenes.

Thank you again so much!”

I also appreciated the trouble you both took to advise and suggest – thank you.”

“All the guests remarked on the food and how delicious it all was and the excellent service.

The ever-ready Staff always smiling, the glasses never empty and the wonderful, wonderful canapes!

However, for the Hosts it was your calmness to deal with last minute drop outs, sorting out the placements and leaving the tent immaculate and generally knowing that we didn't have to worry about a thing!

We loved having you here and could not speak more highly of everyone at Creative Cooks, especially you Jane and Sarah.

In short a complete delight!”
