    The whole thing was flawless and we couldn’t be happier!

    I just wanted to say the most heartfelt enormous thank you for the incredible job you did on Saturday. It’s been an absolute pleasure from the moment we first contacted you and can’t thank you enough for making our day so special.

    Everything from the tasting through to how relaxed you made us feel, helping us on the Friday prepare, the quick turn-around of the room which was unbelievable, the delicious food (that dessert!!), the brilliant staff service and seeing us off with the private bar at the end of the night/packing up all the leftovers – the whole thing was flawless and we couldn’t be happier! Please pass on our thanks to all at Jacaranda.

    It was so lovely working with you, we think you are absolutely lovely and wish you all the very best for the future!!

    So sad it’s all over but will cherish the memories. Thanks again!!

    We were in such safe, reliable hands.

    Just wanted to say a huge Thank you to all at Jacaranda who took part in organising and creating a wonderful experience for Tasha and Matt's wedding on Friday.

    Everyone was very efficient, helpful and took the utmost care to make it special for all the guests. It was greatly appreciated to feel we were in such safe, reliable hands.

    Jess, in particular, was brilliant. She worked extremely hard and remained calm, positive and cheerful throughout - what a professional! I give them all 5 stars.

    The food was amazing

    We wanted to send you a short note to say THANK YOU so much for everything! The day itself went seamlessly and it was a huge source of comfort that you were there in the background sorting everything and I'm sure solving all sorts of problems we never saw! I know it made my parents in particular were really able to relax (eventually!) The food was amazing - we got so many compliments on the meal and the canapes. And the tables looked stunning!

    Thank you as well for all your advice and support in the run up to the big day. The meetings at Jacaranda, the constant random questions from me over email, the help in the days before setting up - all were invaluable for us! With your help, we came up with our perfect wedding day which we will always be very very grateful to you for.

    Thank you again and wishing you all the best for the future

    The food was delicious

    A huge thanks for all your efforts over the past year to make our wedding so special. Formal thanks to follow, but I want to take a moment right now to say how pleased we were with Jacaranda's delivery on Saturday. It was a truly magical day for us. The food was delicious and so many of our friends have passed on the most positive compliments.

    Nigel, you were also a star managing the wind and so many candles. Your team excelled. Clearly all of this success was based on the planning, tasting and admin of the preceding 11 months, so thank you to Minty and Julia for this. You have been most pleasant, encouraging and engaging to plan with. We enjoyed the whole process.

    Jacaranda were just perfect

    We had the most wonderful time, I can't imagine it going better. You and all the team from Jacaranda were just perfect. We were able to enjoy spending time with family and friends, knowing that everything would just be sorted out for us in the background. Thank you so much for going above and beyond - having had the van so well organised made such a difference for the friends who came to pick up on Sunday.

    Exceptional service

    We had the most incredible wedding day and that was largely due to Jacaranda. Throughout the process, they were friendly, efficient and professional and did everything possible to ensure our day was perfect. The food was exceptional, and we still have guests commenting now (a month later!) with some even saying it was the best meal they've ever had. I can't recommend you guys enough - thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

    I wish I could give some constructive feedback, but I really can't think of any way that the day could have been improved!

    Our married life together could not have gotten off to a better start!

    Everyone is raving about the food!

    Everyone is raving about the food! That is so special for me as all our friends know us as major foodies so having a wedding breakfast that was memorable was really important... and it truly was. Tom's parents friend even said the food and service was better than at her own daughter’s wedding!

    Something that also really stood out for my friends was how attentive everyone was. They were so well looked after and it felt so personal and special for them. My friend who is pregnant was so impressed as she didn't feel like she was missing out which she is very grateful for.

    I can't explain how happy it makes to hear this from the people I love because all I wanted was for people to have a good time and you helped us to give that to them. I will be eternally thankful for everything you and
    Jacaranda did for us.

    Fantastic

    We cannot thank you enough for all the wonderful help you gave us all and we have had a flood of lovely letters complimenting you all both for Saturday and Sunday. I never thanked all your staff or chefs although I know Sarah did. They were fantastic, and I sent a very small present of some wine back with Dom as a small thank you to them all.

    It all seemed to work like clockwork from where I was either eating, drinking, sitting or dancing (well sort of)! And you could not have been more calm and helpful throughout the whole event and all the planning. An enormous thank you.

    Phenomenal - everyone loved the food

    Dear Minty and Jules, We just wanted to say the HUGEST thank you for everything on Saturday. You were phenomenal - everyone loved the food and we had so many comments how fantastic it was. But for us it was just so so nice to sit back and relax and know what incredible hands we were in for the day. Thank you so much for coordinating it all so well - extreme heat, rain, thunder, wind, blocked loos, dimming lights... everything. It was so amazing and we loved every minute. Love to you both, Chris and Rosina xx

    Seriously fantastic

    Phern and the incredible team at Jacaranda,
    I don’t even know where to begin with how grateful we are for your incredible work before the wedding and on the day itself! Seriously fantastic!
    Phern you were a superstar from start to finish from the email – there were loads – to the calls, and my lack of ability to make a decision!
    ‘Caterers’ doesn’t event cover half of that you did for us and we are so lucky to have had such a fab team on the day. I don’t think anyone had an empty glass at any point!
    The food, oh my god, the food! We have had so many comments about how great the food was and if my dress was a little less tight I would have had seconds and thirds, delicious! I’m already trying to think of how soon is too soon to renew our vows, so we can do it all again! Massive thanks!

    They were brilliant

    Just a quick note to say thank you for all of your unbelievable efforts to make our wedding so special. We knew from the start that we were in credibly capable hands and you all made the process (and day) truly fun and memorable – thank you!
    It is fair to say that without you all, mum wouldn’t have been able to enjoy the day as she would have been locked up in a mental asylum! You were brilliant!

    The service was excellent and the food was delicious

    Thanks so much for everything you and the team did on the day and in the run up to the wedding. The service was excellent on the day and the food was delicious (absolutely loved the dessert - thank you!). The team coped so well with the delay of the speeches and the various cocktails, and I think the cheese display is the best I’ve ever seen at a wedding! Thanks so much.

    Absolutely flawless

    Just wanted to say thank you again for the best day ever last Saturday. We couldn't have done it without you and the Jacaranda team. Everything was perfect, and we had the most wonderful time. We have had dozens of compliments regarding the food and service levels, which were both absolutely flawless. I wish we could do it all over again!!

    Phern, I don’t know where to start!! The food, your amazing help, the staff all honestly incredible and really made our day!
