Vanilla Catering & Events

Busy Busy Busy

Time is passing me by and here at Vanilla the team have been crazily busy, too busy to blog, but yesterday I was reminded by my team that it is about time I found time to update all our followers on what is happening.

As you know we entered the year on a high as we heard we had won the wedding caterer of the year London and the South East. Since then we have not had chance to stop and think with a whirlwind of work, parties, and events heading our way.

We are very pleased to say our work at Portsmouth Historic Docks is continuing in abundance. We love the thrill of working on HMS Victory; this historic ship can be hired for your corporate event or party, with our top team of chefs providing a bespoke menu to suit. The Vanilla team are now used to the height restrictions, (well Beaky still hasn’t learnt judging by all her dents and swellings!), the creaking timbers and the ghost of Nelson .......

Two weeks ago we did four very different events in a row at this great venue, a regimental dinner, a Royal visit, a corporate dinner and a good old fashioned birthday bash. Thanks very much to the corporate clients who sent me a huge bunch of flowers as a thank you. Gestures like this really brighten up the day and the office (also they obscure Kits head making the office a much prettier place to work!)

Heading round the corner from the historic docks we have ventured into catering at another Portsmouth Landmark. We are now one of the preferred caterers at the Spinnaker Tower; a fantastic venue with great views over Portsmouth harbour (it also has a lot of steps!). On a clear day you can see for miles and miles (as the song goes) so please contact us if you want to hold your wedding party or corporate dinner here as it really is a unique space.

We are also working closely with the Royal Marines museum in Southsea. We have a winter wedding package here and a Christmas party package. We do still have a few slots left for your party, and you can either book the venue exclusively or just a table.

New additions to the team include the Lovely Chloe who comes on board as an event Manager and finally we get a female member of the chefs brigade, Anna Howarth joins us as well Daniel Ward and Keith Stone .

So there you have it a mini update however if you follow us on twitter you can have a daily dose of Vanilla news

Don’t forget too that For every guest you invite to your wedding or party Vanilla will donate 20p to Wedding Wishing Well Foundation which organises and funds Weddings for terminally ill people, so the more guestes you have the more money we give to Naomis chrity  Please visit their website for full details of the amazing work they do.


More soon
