    Perfect day

    We recently held our wedding at Herons Farm and couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. From the first enquiry via RS Catering, through to regular emails and calls with Linda about accommodation, the team were extremely helpful and made organising our wedding as stress-free as it could possibly be.

    Everyone in the family/ wedding party stayed on site at Herons Farm and all were complimentary about the cottages. Breakfast the morning after the wedding with all our nearest and dearest was fabulous!

    From our first meeting with Richie, RS Catering and follow up chat/ meeting with Charlotte, we knew we were in capable hands and our drooling over the food suggested to us, wasn't unfounded as many complimented the food on the day (including my new mother-in-law saying it was the best lamb she'd ever had!). They also managed with various dietary requirements with such ease.

    Linda helped me to arrange all things accommodation and Maggie was fantastic on the day of the wedding and morning after.

    If you want a run of the mill, conveyor belt wedding, go to a package deal from a bog standard hotel. But if you want to tailor your wedding to your wants and needs, and within a decent budget, then Herons Farm can definitely help you!

    Thank you for making our very special day, truly wonderful.

    Sign, Sealed...delivered

    "We'd spoken to a few other caterers about our wedding Farmer's Market idea but no-one really seemed very creative or interested in developing the concept; that is until we spoke to Richie Sanderson. Richie took all the thoughts on-board and then grew the concept with us to another level to create EXACTLY what we had in mind. The paella on a 5 foot pan looked fabulous, the presentation of the soup station and all the Mediterranean delicacies of olives, breads, kofta, hummus, grilled vegetables etc etc looked incredible and tasted even better. Richie was a true sport and a delight to work with - dealing with the chef makes such a difference and we had full confidence in him and his team delivering on the day - which they did with bells and whistles!
    Thank you so much, you made the food a real highlight of our special day, exactly as we had hoped.

    'Best Food Ever Tasted'

    Apologies for not getting back to you sooner..
    It's really great to hear from you - it's odd not having our daily conversations where I panic about what I was suppose to do and what I've forgotten...
    I think you're very deserving of a extremely positive testimonial given the efforts that you put in and quality of food and service you managed to deliver... I think without exception everyone we have spoken to following the wedding was in awe of your achievements. It seems a ridiculous claim, but everyone was unanimous in agreeing that this was the best food they have ever experienced at a wedding. it's the first thing they talk about!

    But I think the quality of the food and execution is only half the story. From our perspective the most pleasing thing was your genuine willingness to listen and accommodate our whims. Your bespoke service enabled us to impart our personality on the day and in the weeks before the wedding you made yourself available at every possible opportunity and invested significantly more time than I would have expected.

    I don't think we could have asked for anything more from the day and everything you or your team (Charlotte, Liam, Terrance, James et. al) had input into was a massive success... from the choice of food to the bar, to the cake, to the table decorations, to the venue etc etc. We had fairly high expectations but on each occasion you exceeded these.

    On reflection it's difficult to put into words exactly how grateful we are because it sounds a bit naff but you have an amazing team and offer a fantastic service. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to friends and family and I think you are deserving of every success in the future.

    PERFECT !! Says it all.....

    We had a fabulous wedding at Heron's Barn, Richie & his team couldn't do enough to help us out both on the day itself and in the lead up to it. From sourcing glasswear to showing our photographer round, nothing was too much trouble. The barn is rustic and beautiful and can be decorated to suit your colour scheme. Both ourselves and some of our guests stayed the night before and the wedding night and the cottages are lovely, full of character and allowed us not to worry about travel on the big day. The food was superb, not a crumb was left over and many of our friends have commented that it was the best wedding food they have ever eaten. We would not hesitate to recommend Richie and his team for your big day, our only regret is that it's now all over and we want to do it again!


    Kind Regards,

    Jess
