    Couldn't recommend more highly

    Marcin and Rich were totally amazing. Our venue was pretty tricky to get to but they couldn't have been more up for the challenge and made the event totally magical. The canapés were delicious and the paella incredible. There was a huge amount, such generous portions and we had some left over too. We rented cutlery, plates and linen from them and they set up and cleared up so quickly, it was all really impressive and I couldn't recommend them more. Communication was great and they were incredibly friendly and professional.

    "Best wedding food ever"...said our guests

    Marcin and the team catered for our laid back, festival style wedding in Harewood Forest. The food looked and tasted incredible!! We were so grateful to the staff for being so accommodating with last minute changes due to weather and our wishes of how we wanted the day to go. We had an absolutely amazing day and put that down to the hard working staff and fab food.

    Glorious food

    Thank you Vamos Paella!! Glorious food & plenty of it. We had three types of paella.... all of which were superb. Canapés were delicious, especially the chorizo! all given out by friendly staff. We had so many comments about the food from guests that we knew we had made the right choice for our wedding. Thanks so much Vamos Paella xx

    It was absolutely delicious, and we had complements throughout the night.

    Vamos catered our wedding (140 people) on 20th July, and we could not have been more pleased. 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.

    Insanely good food, the nicest people and a really professional style. Vamos Paella catered for our wedding in early June and really helped to make the day incredible both for us and our guests. They cooked up the paellas outside which made a great feature for the wedding as the guests could see them in action. Also the maitre'd and his team were brilliant - they were so friendly, kept everyone topped up and made sure that we all had what we needed. And our quests are still talking about how good the food was. We really cannot recommend them enough, absolutely fantastic.

    We got lots of compliments from wedding guests.

    Vamos Paella catered for our wedding at the end of June. From the first contact they were excellent, with quick responses/lots of help deciding about food etc, coping with numerous different dietary requirements etc. We had an excellent tasting session in Brighton for us and parents.

    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.

    Thank you!!

    Amazing Wedding Caterers

    Vamos Paella catered for our wedding on 17th August and they did an absolutely amazing job - all of our guests commented how delicious the food was! The service was impeccable, you just went above and beyond and for that we are so so grateful! We couldn’t have imagined anyone we would rather have catering for our wedding and would definitely recommend them to everyone. From the tasting in Brighton, to the help with putting together the running order of the day, to the prompt response to my many many questions you were amazing and took away a lot of the stress that comes with organising a wedding in the middle of a field! Thank you thank you thank you!

    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.

    The food was delicious

    Melissa and her team catered for our wedding in West Sussex a couple of weeks ago and they were absolutely fantastic. The food was delicious and I have lost count of the number of compliments we received, both during the wedding and in the days that followed. From the canapes and fizz, to the tapas, paella and evening catering, everything was fresh, authentically Spanish and of an extremely high quality. Melissa was an absolute pro who really understood how weddings work, offering advice and adapting the catering to suit our needs. As a result the whole day flowed beautifully and the event was staffed by an extremely friendly, helpful team. My only regret is that I didn't eat more, but sadly my dress wouldn't allow it!

    We didn't need to worry about a thing

    We hired Vamos Paella to cater for our wedding of 135 guests. They were great from the start, inviting us over to taste their food and then taking care of all sorts of details along the way, including hiring us additional crockery, plates and linen for the venue. On the day they were great, and we didn't need to worry about a thing. There was tons of food, the guests were all incredibly complimentary. I'd highly recommend Vamos Paella.

    Amazing

    Vamos Paella catered for my wedding for 120 guests and it was AMAZING everyone was raving about how much they loved the food and Melissa and her team were great. The whole process of organising, tasting, setting up the event … everything was easy and Melissa totally put my mind at rest, nothing was too much trouble for her and her team and they made it a truly memorable day! The sharing platters and tapas on the tables were great as they acted as an ice breaker for people who didn’t know each other. Sadly the venue didn’t let us cook the paella inside but Melissa adapted her plans for the service on the day and instead just served the paellas inside. I would highly recommend them - thumbs up all round!!!!! (and even at the end of the night - after hours of dealing with my disorderly guests they were still smiling and charming!).

    High quality, professional and friendly throughout

    High quality, professional and friendly throughout, Vamos Paella helped to make our daughter’s wedding reception truly memorable. From the cooking to the serving and the final clear up, Melissa and her team were helpful, cheery and efficient. There were many compliments on the range and quality of the tapas, paellas and desserts.

    I cannot recommend Vamos Paella highly enough.

    Vamos Paella catered for our celebration for 80 people at The Party Field in Lewes. We had the lunchtime canapés and 3 paellas, and evening food of cheese tower and honey glazed ham. The food was really delicious, our guests all raved about it. Having the paellas in the big pans set up in a tent outside out marquee made quite a spectacle. The paella tasted very authentic and the flavours were lovely. Melissa has been a pleasure to do business with, very professional throughout, from the tasting onwards. Communication was easy and she offered us helpful recommendations about timings and other ideas that helped make the day go smoothly. I cannot recommend Vamos Paella highly enough.

    Couldn't have been better!

    Lunch time garden party for 190 people to continue the celebrations of our daughter's wedding the day before.
    Melissa was very helpful from our first contact. The choice of paellas was excellent, we had 5 covering vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, meat eaters and gluten free dietary requirements. The taste and quality of the food was excellent and all the guests were very enthusiastic about it- especially as it was something a little different to the norm. The team was totally professional and cleared up perfectly. Couldn't have been better!
