Incredible! All our guests raved about the food!
We were so over the moon with the quality and presentation of all the food! Our guests raved about the food, was so lovely to do something different too.
Gracias Vamos Paella
The food was amazing, and really was one of the big hits of the day. Everybody absolutely loved it, said how delicious it was, how much they enjoyed the variety of what was on offer, and also felt there was enough to eat - always key at a wedding!
Mads and I sadly didn’t get as much of it as we’d have liked because we got caught up chatting with everybody. It made us very grateful to have had the tasting at your house way back in 2020!
Richie was an absolute star - professional, so friendly and effortlessly calm.
Thank you again! Now we just need to plan another event at some point where we can use Vamos Paella again!!
Superb Wedding Catering
Couldn't recommend more highly
"Best wedding food ever"...said our guests
And secondly, the waiting team was incredible on the day, particularly Ritchie. They had a lot of work to do when we had a sudden downpour of rain and they had to move the drinks-serving station as well as all the furniture inside, while continuing to make sure everyone got their drinks. We didn't have a wedding coordinator on the day, and so Ritchie and the team were a huge help in making sure everything ran as smoothly as possible. And on top of that, they did it all with big smiles and were so friendly and lovely to everyone.
We really were so impressed and very grateful.
Melissa was very helpful, responsive and friendly from the very beginning when we reached out to organise a tasting.
100% recommend as caterers for your wedding!
We loved vamos
It was absolutely delicious, and we had complements throughout the night.
There was SO much food with ample for seconds (occasionally thirds...) and plenty left over. They boxed up all the remaining paella, enough for a late-night snack or two...
They also provided staff for the evening. We barely noticed they were there, which I mean as a complement! The staff were professional, went above and beyond, and really added to the smooth running of the event. Food was served quickly (which had been a concern of ours in the run up given our numbers)
Pricing was very fair, and was similar to - if not a little cheaper than - similar services on both food and staffing.
I would thoroughly recommend Vamos to anyone considering this type of thing for their event. Thank you so much Melissa and your team for being part - and making a real success - of our day :)
Insanely good food and the nicest people.
We got lots of compliments from wedding guests.
They were very helpful in the run up to the wedding, advising on staffing needs and with late changes to the menu and sourcing crockery etc last minute for us. They also sourced staff etc, which again was one less thing to worry about.
The fact that VP didn't need electricity/gas etc. was a real bonus as our venue didn't have any! They were also flexible on the day, helped serve our wedding cake as a desert and served tea and coffee for us.
The food itself was delicious and we got lots of compliments from wedding guests.
