We would like to go into writing to express how delighted we were with your contribution to what has been widely described by our guests as ‘the best wedding ever’! We certainly had a wonderful day and this was no in small part due to the team from Portfolio.
When Tony (the family foodie) first raised the idea of an Asian-Fusion menu my heart sank, and I argued strongly against it. I thought that even the best wedding caterer would struggle with such an ambitious menu. I have been to some lovely weddings (including one at Claridges with an eye-watering budget); and the food has never been particularly memorable, and often merely edible. Therefore, I honestly thought Tony’s choices were literally & metaphorically a recipe for disaster.... My message was ‘keep it simple’. Thank goodness he ignored me, and brace yourself for the superlatives....
As you know, we had our tasting when you were on maternity leave. The food was excellent. Tony had a few notes for the chef, mainly matters of personal preference. The doubter in the family – me – could not imagine the quality of dishes we experienced at Lamport Manor being served out of a marquee kitchen. I need not have worried, everything you did on the day/night was superb.
You are at all times, personable, organised, and polite; but nothing gets past you and in the way of exquisite service. Portfolio’s service meant that the event ran like a dream. It was seamless. A lot of people commented on how well the evening ‘flowed’. No waiting around or delays, from drinks and canapés to dinner service etc.
The food was exquisite. Unfortunately, I was so excited that I barely eat much more than a few canapés and a mouthful of dinner; but when I asked Tony how he thought the food compared with the tasting, he said that it was even better! Every guest commented, on the night, or subsequently, about the quality of food and the service. Most of the feedback was that it was better than they’d had in high quality restaurants. I know, like me, many of them popped their head into the catering marquee in amazement to see where this food was coming from and give compliments!
I tried to make sure that all your team members knew how much we appreciated their contributions to the overall experience, especially the chefs; but please pass on my thanks again. We truly had a perfect day.
Tony and I are lucky enough to have been to some very nice hotels, both here and abroad; and the intention is not to ‘namedrop’ but to put Portfolio’s service levels into context. You are exceptional. You also provide excellent value for money. As I said when we first met, I am a perfectionist, and I recognised the same characteristic (curse!) in you; so praise from me is high praise indeed. I think if I read a letter like this I would think that you had written it yourself, so if you ever need me to vouch for you, you only have to call.
A very big THANK YOU from both of us for our perfect wedding!
