The BIGGEST of Thank Yous!
We just wanted to say the worlds biggest thank you to all of you for helping plan & organise our wedding day! We had the best day and we cannot express how grateful we are.Sent on 14/09/2017
Flavia, you were amazing on the day! Every guest has said how brilliant you and all the staff were. They couldn't get over the amount of finger sandwiches! Thank you so much!
Marie, you were around for the whole planning process and without your expertise & guidance we would have been lost at times! Thank you!
We will recommend you wherever we go!
I said I would let you know who we used:
Photography - Lilly Sells Photography. http://www.lillysellsphotography.com/
Lilly works with her boyfriend Rich - so you get two for the price of one & two different perspectives for photos of the wedding.
Cake - Cutter & Squidge in Soho.
Just a quick question, how do we get the damage deposit back?
Once again, Thank you for everything. We honestly cannot say it enough!

Marie-Laure & her team went absolutely above and beyond on our wedding day. The food was fantastic, so many people commented on how amazing it was. ML was so much more than a caterer. She helped organise our day from start to finish. Once we had discussed our vision for all the decorations, ML and her team ran with it and came up with a breath-taking display on the day. She looked after us, and ensured everything ran beautifully.Sent on 09/12/2016

Quality and Class from a highly professional outfi
the person I dealt with and the easygormet team providing an outstanding service. By providing a tasting session in advance, we had every confidence our guests would love the food. And indeed they did, with the added bonus of generous helpings on the day. Throughout the day, the easygormet team provided excellent, friendly and helpful service which was commented on by our guests. Both leading up to the wedding and on the big day itself, the person I dealt with eased the stress of the wedding and made it a classy, tasteful event. Easygormet pride themselves on high quality and style with a friendly service. Highly recommended.Sent on 15/09/2016
