Best food they had ever had at a wedding!
Venue Service

By Hanna and Michael, on 14 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 24 Aug 2018

‘Life’s Kitchen worked with us to plan a fantastic meal, which everyone very much enjoyed. We wanted the food to be both impressive to look at and delicious to eat - which Dave and his team certainly achieved. At least one of our guests told us that it was some of the best food they had ever had at a wedding’.

‘We chose Life's Kitchen as they were the only caterer from all the suppliers we approached who actually met with us and went through the requirements for our wedding prior to giving us a quote. Once we chose them, they did a fantastic job of meeting us on a regular basis and advising the things we should considering. Having done this many times before, they gave us some great ideas and suggestions for the running of the day. Life’s Kitchen made the whole process seamless’.

Thank you so SO much!

‘Where do I begin, just wanted to say thank you so so much for making our day very special. From my millions of calls and emails, you were just so helpful; I must say am going to miss our calls and emails! Everything was beautiful, beyond my expectations and all because of you. Family and friends loved everything. Everything ran smoothly and was very organised; you took care of everything and we were just able to enjoy the day without worrying. The food, where do I begin? The beef was just perfect, most people said it was the best beef they have had!’

So memorable and enjoyable

We just wanted to drop you a note to say a massive thanks for helping make our wedding reception so memorable and enjoyable. Nicky and I had a great day and all our friends thought the food and the service throughout the reception was exceptional.

We would highly recommend you

By Justin and Rupert, on 14 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 14 Jul 2017

From our first meeting with Kate to discuss potential options we were impressed with the service offered by Life’s Kitchen. You combined knowledge of weddings/events and of the venue with a real desire to listen to what we wanted which no other caterer seemed to do. You also gave us choice and let us shape our own wedding day alongside your expert and considered advice and knowledge. All in all you played a massive part in making the day the best of our lives, so THANKYOU!! We would highly recommend you to anyone to cater for events and wish you every success in the future
