Testimonials

I would like to thank you and your team for a fantastic event, everything went perfectly. Everyone said how amazing the food was – I thought the menu worked really well. I cannot thank you enough for all your help and assistance with setting up the venue, flooring and catering….I know how much hard work goes into an event like this. Thank you so much – you are amazing. Please send my thanks to everyone and I will certainly contact you again for future events in the area.

Dell EMC, Ben Ainsley Racing, October 2017

Thank you so much for the truly wonderful job you and your team did on Saturday night for Dom’s 21st “at home party”. We have had so many compliments from our guests about the tasty food, excellent presentation and great staff, both food and bar. It was a bit hectic at times with “boisterous” guests, older and younger, so thanks to Gemma and Cath for being so patient and doing an amazing job with their team. Dom – usually understated – said it was the best night of his life! Of that says it all. Thanks again

Chris, Martin & Dom, Private House, October 2017

What can we say! Thank you so much for the incredible food and service you provided to us at our wedding. We are so incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to have such a prestigious catering company involved in our special day. The fact you travelled all the way to Gloucestershire and then provided us and our guests with first class food – from the canapes to the desserts (and everything in between) in a venue you didn’t know, and a kitchen full of appliances you weren’t used to is remarkable. The food was stunning, with so much care and attention put into not only the way it tasted but also its presentation. We don’t know how you managed to cook 9 beautiful joints of beef absolutely perfectly, whilst ensuring our 6 awkward vegans and veggies were well fed with delicious food. We struggled to make a decision on our dessert so having a “couples duo” of both our favourites was a great solution. It ensured everyone had their perfect dessert but the debate continues as to the favourite……….we felt completely in awe of all the preparation and work undertaken, our expectations were completely exceeded. As well as the fabulous food, every member of the team was friendly and professional, doing their jobs with a smile on their faces and ensuring guests had everything they needed at all times. We really truly appreciate everything you did for us and our guests. We had the best day of our lives! Thank you so much, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Vanilla to anyone.

Mr & Mrs Brace, Oxleaze Barn, October 2017

We can’t say a big enough thank you for everything you did for us on our wedding day. It was such a special day and we had the4 best time. It wouldn’t have been the same without you all working so hard and being such great hosts. Cath, a big thank you to you in particular for taking us through the whole day with such enthusiasm. It really helped having somebody so in control, telling us where to be and what to do. All your guidance and constant contact leading up to the day was really appreciated as well. Last but not least the food was absolutely delicious. Everybody was raving about it on the day and after – especially that pudding!

Jade & Steve, Tithe Barn, June 2017

On behalf of my sister, family and friends – I just wanted to say a big thank you to you all at the Port House for such a nice buffet and excellent service for our funeral gathering yesterday.

It was nice to be able to relax and unwind and not to feel rushed in any way.

Just to say thank you, to you and the team, Keeley and Curly. The wedding was superbly done as was the Sunday party – many complimentary comments on the food and the staff. Thank you for your efforts. It was a genuine pleasure having you all work at Brandy Mount, and we shall continue to sing your praises.

Frazer, Marquee Wedding, August 2017

I’ve been in the wedding game for a while now. Whilst I’ve always known what Vanilla do I didn’t exactly realise just how far reaching your efforts go. You’re not just caterers – you’re event managers – creative thinkers and supporters. I can’t imagine how our wedding would have gone without the tireless effort made by everyone on the team. I never thought about what happens at 11.15 when everyone leaves or where the wedding stuff goes and more importantly how it got there. The empty bottles, the mess. For us just to simply hop in a taxi and disappear into the moonlight was divine. We simply cannot thank you all enough, for listening to our ideas, taking on board the gluten free mantra, getting into the spirit of the day and simply being awesome. We couldn’t be happier with how the day went and a large part of that was down to you guys.

Rob, Tithe Barn, August 2017

I would just like to thank you so very much for making James & Malicka’s day just so very perfect. I cannot express how delighted we are with the amazing food, the fabulous staff and the understated quality to detail.

Just a quick email to say a huge thank you for all that you and the team did at the weekend. Our guests had a wonderful time and that was so much down to you. The food was really great, and the service excellent. Sam and I both felt very spoilt, so thank you. We really couldn’t have asked for more.

Charlotte, Marquee Wedding, August 2017

Just back from our honeymoon and wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your team for all your help and support both leading up to the wedding and the day itself. All of our guests have been singing you praises, the food was amazing and the service you and your team provided was outstanding everyone was so helpful – thank you for making our day so special.

Lou, Gilbert Whites House, July 2017

It’s very remiss of me not to write sooner to say a massive thank you for everything you did in helping to make Fran and Don’s wedding a wonderful occasion. The food was absolutely outstanding and all of our guests were so impressed and extremely complimentary, not only regarding the food, but the efficiency and attentiveness of your lovely and friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them and their professionalism was outstanding. Everyone had an amazing day and the newlyeweds are now having a lovely relaxing time in Greece. Than you all for helping to make their day such a special one

Your team were so kind to Chris and I all day, we felt really looked after. The little personal platter of canapes you provided us whilst we had photos taken was such a kind thought and ensured we did not miss out. The team even kept hold of our drinks for us and guarded Chris’s ice cream. We have had so much positive feedback from all our guests about the quality of food and service. You really helped out big day run smoothly and we are very grateful

Heather & Chris, Tree Houses, June 2017

To Sally and Cath and the team at Vanilla… lost for words on how good the catering was tonight at our first Networking at Breast Cancer Haven in Titchfield.

Cath – you and your team sere so helpful, professional, friendly and added such value to our important evening.

Words are not enough to thank you all for the wonderful work you did on our big day and on the lead up to it.

The food was amazing…we had guests comment that it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding and although of course we are biased we have to agree. The drinks were kept flowing and the organization was smooth and just how we wanted, making a relaxed day for us and our guests. We will be back not just for anniversaries but as regulars and lovers of the Port House and their wonderful team

My special thanks and very highest regards, aye

Chris, The Port House – November 2016

Thank you very much for catering for us for our wedding. We were really pleased. The food was superb. In particular, the fish was cooked to perfection, which is extraordinary when you are cooking for 140. It is only now that I remember that I have rarely had good fish at any banqueting type event. So a huge thank you to you, Kit and the team. Great job. We very much appreciated your advice to us throughout. Best wishes

Andrew & Claire, Marquee, October 2016

We will make sure we get a proper thank you over to you and your team in the next couple of weeks. But we both needed to get hold of you and just say thank you so much. It was the greatest thing seeing you in the morning and just letting you take over. You handled absolutely everything and the wedding breakfast was out of this world. We had a lovely day (although it is very hard to take it all in at the time) and loved every moment! All our love

Chris & Phoebe, Sopley Mill – October 2016

A massive thank you again for Saturday. As I said on Saturday you & your team reached absolute perfection!

Matt & Ange, Tithe Barn, October 2016

Just a quick note to thank you for Friday. We had such a super time - the food was excellent! Olivia also commented that the gluten free meal was delicious! I thought the crystal glasses on the table was such a lovely special touch! Please pass on our thanks to the waitresses who looked after us so well. They really made the evening so special. I would like to book the ward room for next year's Trafalgar Night. There were so many of the group that said they wanted to bring others that I think we are going to need a table upstairs as well! I will send out an email to all the group and find out numbers and let you know. They have also asked me about Burns Night. Dad said he would try and come next year but I might persuade him to come to the summer ball as it will be lighter and warmer for him! Thank you once again for a lovely evening and hope Trafalgar Night (2) next week has the same success! Kind Regards

Yvonne, HMS Warrior, October 2016

Thank you so much for the work you did on our wedding a couple of weeks ago, my guestgs enjoyed the food and had a lovely time that evening, so I appreciate the part your team played in that, both Jessica and I are grateful and so pleased! All the best for you

Daniel & Jessica, HMS Warrior, October 2016

Sincere apologies for not thanking you in person last night; I got held up ensuring the guests got out of the Naval Base OK. Many thanks for an excellent dinner, really fabulous food and great service. All the guests were very complimentary about the evening. Please pass on my thanks to your team. Kindest regards

Trafalgar Night, National Museum of Royal Navy, October 2016

Thank you so much for an amazing event last Saturday. We so loved the day and Vanilla were superb. Many thanks

Teresa & Carl, HMS Warrior, September 2016

Just a quick message to say thank you to the amazing staff last night at the wedding. The venue looked fantastic, the food was amazing and the staff were so helpful. We were very impressed.

Megan & Ray, The Port House, September 2016

Can I just say a massive thank you to all of you for organising what turned out to be a fantastic evening on the Warrior? The feedback from all I have spoken to is just great and everyone had a good time, the venue was perfect, food was excellent and the team really looked after us. It was a great way to celebrate our achievements and bring the curtain down on Brunel Way. Thank you again for an excellent job.

CooperVision, HMS Warrior, September 2016

We have just got back from honeymoon so I’m so sorry it has taken so long to send this! We just wanted to say a huge thank you for the absolutely mind-blowing food and service at our wedding on the 13th. Everything was absolutely perfect and we had so many comments from people saying it was the best wedding food they had ever had. The service was impeccable; all the waiting staff were so polite and friendly and were there whenever you needed anything without being remotely obtrusive. Every plate was empty but the glasses were always full – the perfect combination! We are still absolutely gobsmacked as to how your amazing chefs are able to create such fantastic food for such huge numbers of people. When we came for our tasting, we were blown away by the quality of everything we tried. When we decided on the beef fillet, part of us did wonder how you would ever be able to replicate that beautifully cooked beef en croute for 120 guests – but you did! It was every bit as delicious as when it was made just for the two of us. You were so flexible with our guest’s requirements, creating delicious vegan, veggie, gluten free, no diary (any combinations of all of these!) dishes for people needed them. We have already passed your details to a number of guests. Cath – you ran everything to a tee and it was so lovely to know that everything was being looked after so amazingly. So thank you thank you thank you for helping us have the best wedding day we could ever have hoped for with hands-down, the most delicious food we have ever eaten at a wedding!

Adam & Alex, Tithe Barn, August 2016

Thank you very much to you and your team for the wonderful catering last Saturday. So many of our guests commented on our visually appealing and delicious menu which was executed perfectly by your staff waiting at the tables. The food was absolutely delicious – the salmon and lamb was out of this world, so a big thank you to the chefs for their artisan culinary skills which were much appreciated. We also appreciated the trio dessert very much which was a master-piece to end the meal. Having presided over many formal dinners in a 35-year career in the Royal Marines, I can say that your team was quite excellent. Best wishes and thank you so much

Roger & Nicky, Royal Marines Museum, August 2016

Only just drawing breath! Thank you and all your lovely staff so much for organising such a brilliant event. Everything was perfect and the food was much complimented on. Sunday was equally as good. We could not have been happier and would not hesitate to recommend you. I think all the girls had a crush on “hot” Daniel by the end of the evening who was absolutely charming – as were all your staff. Maybe we will see you again at the next wedding although at the moment we are paying them to elope!!! Kind regards

Carolyn, Marquee, August 2016

I know that Jo and James will want to thank you themselves for all that you did to make their day so special when they return from honeymoon, but Chris and I would also like to thank you very much indeed for everything you did to ensure the day itself ran so smoothly. Great food, and such efficient friendly service from all you team, Vanilla did really go that extra mile which helped make the day so successful! We have enjoyed working with you over the last couple of years and although we have now run out of daughters, we hope that we may work with you again on corporate events. Wishing you much continued success. With kind regards

Chris & Christine, Marquee, August 2016

Well, what a bank holiday weekend! Thank you for your outstanding service on Satruday and for all your excellent advice and guidance. The quality of food and service was fantastic and you and your staff helped so much to make the day such a success. It was a truly fantastic day and it couldn’t have gone any better. The weather held and defied all predictions of thunderstorms. Indeed, there wasn’t one raindrop. The church looked magnificent. The priest, Paul Kennedy, was superb in the ceremony and gave such an intimate, insightful and memorable address. The Master’s Garden at St Cross looked wonderful. We’re biased, obviously, but it was the dream day in every way. We cannot thank you enough.

Mark & Hilary, Marquee, August 2016

I want to thank you for making such a significant contribution to the smooth running of Molly and Ian’s wedding day on Saturday. You and your staff were unfailingly helpful and could not have done more to make the day go smoothly. The food was delicious, the service efficient and the tidy up process at the end of the evening, brilliant. Sally, thank you for your patience and perseverance during the planning process! The day was truly memorable and we will be eternally grateful to you and all your staff. I will recommend you whenever the subject of weddings comes up! Best wishes

Hilary, Marquee, August 2016

We were delighted with the lunch you provided for our Golden Wedding Anniversary yesterday. The meal was delicious and the steaks were perfect. We have already had many compliments on the food, so please pass on a “very well done” to your chef. We thought your service throughout was very good indeed, your staff were very polite and friendly, please pass our thanks on to them. Most of all very many thanks to you personally for organising the venet in such a professional and friendly manner. Kind regards

Anthony & Pauline, Marquee, August 2016

Nick and I can’t express how thankful we are for everything you and your team did last Saturday, we had a lof of compliments on how attentive your staff were and I know Chris has definitely made some friends in keeping everyone suitably topped up! We couldn’t have asked for more, the food was fantastic and both Nick and I couldn’t believe that we weren’t hungry and not able to eat as much as we would have liked. Despite me vowing I wouldn’t be one of those brides who didn’t eat, I did just that! Thank you again

Rachael & Nick, Trafalgar Park, August 2016

Thank you for making our day! The food was perfect and all the staff was great. Love

Emma & Sean, HMS Warrior, August 2016

Just a quick note to express Madeleine’s and my thanks to you and your team. The evening went extremely well and everyone complimented us on the food provided by Vanilla and the helpfulness of you and your staff. Very well done, indeed. Thank you for all your help and assistance and that of your colleagues at Swanwick and which made a great evening which we will remember forever. With kind regards

Madeleine & Geoffrey, Spinnaker Tower, July 2016

Thank you so much for all of your hard work at our wedding on the 23rd July. Everything seemed to go seamlessly and your food was delicious. More than that, your calm, positive & unflappable approach was hugely appreciated! You really did help to make our day truly magic. With love

Clemmie & Brian, Marquee, July 2016

A belated thanks for your input into our special day. Everyone commented on how lovely the food & your staff were. Best wishes

Becky & Jamie, Tithe Barn, May 2016

Can you pass on our thanks and gratitude to the chefs and staff who worked at our wedding on the Warrior yesterday. They all worked tirelessly and coped exceedingly well even though we were running late, all their efforts did not go unnoticed. The food was exceptional and we had nothing but compliments from all our guests throughout the evening. You helped make our day. Thank you again

Naomi & Jens, HMS Warrior, August 2016

Just to say a big thank you to you and your team for the terrific day you helped us have last week. Sorry I did not see you to say so, weddings as you know are a whirl! But you did us proud with superb catering. We had many comments and on the standard of the food in particular. So thank you for your care to make it so special. Highly recommended you are now!

Mike, HMS Warrior, August 2016

Thanks to you and your team for the wonderful evening we had on board HMS Warrior for my 60th Birthday. Every guest said it was magical, they had never had such an experience before and were hugely impressed by the courtesy and professionalism of everyone they met. The food was absolutely superb, especially the beef wellington…and I don’t exaggerate when I say we were still talking about it the next day. We were impressed with the attention to detail give to every aspect of the evening. I heard nothing but praise and appreciation from every one of my guests. So once again a huge thank you for the work you did to make the evening so special, it was greatly appreciated by everyone…especially me.

Peter, HMS Warrior, July 2016

We are just back from honeymoon and I just wanted to send you an email to say THANK YOU! In the run up to the event you were so helpful and made the process so easy for us, especially when going between communication from both me and Dad! Thank you for being fantastic on the4 day. Your team are awesome and the food was incredible. When we walked around everyone went on and on about who amazing the food was and couldn’t get over the fact that it was made in the kitchen behind. The food was delicious and so beautifully presented and was exactly what we imagined our wedding meal to be like…if not better. The canapes were brilliant and it was so lovely that I got to taste so many of them, something that lots of friends who have got married mentioned that they never got to taste theirs. I think I ate all the ones that were supposed to be for Dan too! You were also just so smiley during the whole thing and kept me at complete ease especially when showing me around the tipis which I am so glad you did as I otherwise wouldn’t have done that and seen it all ready. Thank you so much. The food (as you can probably tell) was a really important part of our day and you and your team absolutely nailed it. Please pass on my thanks to your team, we appreciated all their hard work so much.

Emily & Dan, Marquee Wedding, July 2016

Just to say once again, a heartfelt thank you for all the fab food and your wonderful hard work over the weekend. We gave you a few challenges as usual and you exceeded expectations – as usual. One of the great things about working with you from an event management point of view is that you always find a way to do things, and you deal with last minute changes as if they are no bother at all – when I know they are often a massive headache. Really, really appreciate it. Please pass on our thanks to all and extra special thanks to the wonderful Lee. Special mention also has to go to both Dan and Curly Chris on the bar front. With huge thanks – Amanda

Amanda, Ben Ainsley Racing, July 2016

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our wedding day at The Port House. We had a truly memorable day made even more special by your superb staff who couldn’t have been more helpful. The food was absolutely fantastic and everyone said how much they enjoyed it so please pass on our compliments to the catering team who are a credit to your company. I would not hesitate to recommend you to family and friends in the future. We really cannot thank you enough for making our day so perfect.

Michelle & Craig, The Port House, July 2016

Sam and I would like to thank you all, but especially you Helen, for the most wonderful weekend. The initial meeting and communication was really wonderful and put us immediately at ease. Emails and contact over the forthcoming few months was just the right amount, always at the end of the phone or email, any enquiries and suggestions were efficiently responded to. Your insights and suggestions were all really welcomed. At the event - from the supper on Friday evening for us “early birds”, to the lunch organisation on Saturday for pre-wedding, and the fantastic feast of canapes and dinner that afternoon and evening, all was perfect. Everyone commented on how exquisite the food was. On a personal level and to some extent, we knew that the food was going to be amazing, that was a given (albeit it was even better than we thought); the biggest delight and surprise was how easy you all made it look, and we know full it was not easy. From turning up on Friday and sorting a supper spot, laying out all the tables, preparing the whole event on the day; you were like ninjas sweeping about almost without being noticed, unobtrusive and efficient, charming and amazing. I have no memory of you tidying up and clearing out… despite being totally (and unexpectedly) sober throughout that Saturday (!) but cleared up you did and were somehow off site within an hour or so of the dinner being over. I need you guys permanently in our lives! So thank you all, and especially Helen, for all you did to make our day special and to be honest, to make it work

Nony & Sam, Hill Place, July 2016

Ellie & Sohail will write to you on their return from honeymoon but Piers and I would like to thank you personally for making their wedding perfect. As always your organisation was flawless. The canapes were scrumptious, thank you for taking a special tray to Ellie & Sohail. You served the main course incredibly speedily and calmly although I am sure it was not as easy as it looked with so many dishes. The trio of puddings were heavenly and the cheese, fruit, cake and drinks all appeared at the perfect time, as if by magic but I know by enormous hard work. I hope in between ll your efforts you managed to catch a glimpse of the Afghan dancing – not something you see every day! Thank you too to the Sunday team – a beautifully presented trestle of delicious dishes and very helpful young men who worked hard to make the marquee presentable again. I promise next time will be easier! But until then thank you all a million times for helping make Ellie’s wedding such a success.

Carolyn, Marquee Wedding, July 2016

Thank you so much for everything you and the guys did on Friday. You made it absolutely perfect. It really couldn’t have gone better. There were so many compliments about the food as well and everyone saying it’s the best food they had ever had. The beef fillet in particular. People were just overjoyed they were actually getting a beef fillet for their dinner. The antipasti station was a huge hit as well.

Eloise, Sopley Mill, July 2016

I would just like to say a very big thank you to you and your team – everyone mentioned how extremely smiley and friendly all your staff were and how amazing it was that as soon as anyone walked into the garden, a drink was put into their hand and food seemed to always be on hand. I really am so impressed at what a smooth ship you run and I didn’t have to think once about what you were dong knowing you had it fully under control, it was really fantastic and thank you. I can’t recommend you enough to anyone who wants to know and in fact told everyone who came on Saturday night how brilliant you were – needless to say the food was also delicious and everyone mentioned how good the food had been

Louisa, Marquee, July 2016

Thank you for another magnificent celebration on board the Victory. I hope Helen passed on to you the admiration of the guests for the meal. The lamb won everyone’s praise, it was practically forkable – you will be hard put to it, next year, to beat this years menu.

Byrne, HMS Victory, June 2016

Just wanted to send a quick note to say a big thanks to you and your team for doing a great job for us on both the HMS Warrior events this year – we were really pleased with the catering and the team.

Libby, HMS Warrior, June 2016

I wanted to take the time to write to you to say a huge thank you for helping me during the4 planning stage of our event and also the service and superb food we received on the night. I would ask you to please make sure the whole team receive my heartfelt thanks. Our overseas guests were so amazed with the quality of the food and you team worked seamlessly with the Warrior staff to produce an evening we will all remember for a long time.

Angela, HMS Warrior, June 2016

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your and your teams’ hard work leading up to and on the day of our wedding. The food was delicious, service exactly what we wanted and with your help the day ran really smoothly. We’ve had many people (including 3 chefs at the wedding) say it was the best wedding food they’d ever had and the style was perfect for the occasion. Thank you as well for helping me with all my questions and offering good advice around many aspects we might not have considered ourselves. You always came back to me very promptly with answers which was a huge help. We’d highly recommend Vanilla to our friends and family so please do feel free to use any of these comments as testimonials.

Aimee & James, Marquee Wedding, June 2016

Thanks to you and all your team for their amazing work yesterday. You were fantastic and a special mention to Chris too. Your attention to detail and handling of our endless requests was exemplary.

Andy & Lynn, Grittenham Barn, June 2016

A huge thank you for your brilliant work on Saturday. The whole day was wonderful. Everything about the service you provided was first class. Lots of our guests commented on how professional the catering was. Rave reviews about the lamb, by the way. Thank you for making Alana’s reception run so smoothly and thank you for tolerating my neurotic emails.

Anne, Marquee Wedding, June 2016

I just wanted to say thank you for everything yesterday, the lunch went well and everyone thought it was delicious. I do hope we have a chance to work with you again.

Nick, HMS Victory, April 2016

John, Gilbert Whites House, April 2016

On behalf of the Bosham Sailing Club I would like to thank you for the wonderful service you delivered to help us lay on a spectacular ball. Right from our first contact with you, we found you to be co-operative, accommodationg, friendly and supportive of what we were trying to achieve. On the night the food was even better than when we sampled it, and your staff were such professionals; attentive without being intrusive. The feedback from our guests has been amazing, the success of the event due in no small part to Vanilla Catering. Plese pass on our thanks to all involved.

Lindy, Bosham Sailing Club, May 2016

I might be the other side of the world but I want to thank you for a superb dinner last week. Many of the delegates commented to me on how excellent the food was. "Superb food - so much better than normal mass-catered events". Cheers

Tim, HMS Warrior, May 2016

I just wanted to say a huge thanks for the catering at the dinner last week. I know the delegates really enjoyed the service and food and this was better than I remembered it myself. Please pass on our thanks to the team. I hope we have a chance to work together soon.

Ian, HMS Warrior, May 2016

Thank you

Nicholas, HMS Victory, April 2016

I just wanted to write to say a huge thank you to Cath and all the delightful Vanilla staff for Saturday evening. The dinner was just wonderful - and the Spinnaker Tower cannot be a particularly easy venue to do the catering in. All my guests mentioned the food. It was delicious, beautifully presented and we all loved it. It went towards making my 60th birthday party the memorable event it was. Thank you so much.

Jackie, Spinnaker Tower, April 2016

Sharon & Derek, Royal Marines Museum, February 2016

I can’t thank you and your team enough for helping us host a very successful client event last night. We have received lots of praise and thanks about the food and venue and everyone had a great time.

Rosie & Ed, Royal Marines Museum, November 2015

Message for Sally and her wonderful team. Before I thank you lot I want to thank the cooks and chefs behind the scenes who created all those wonderful delights. However good the food is and however well it is presented, an event is never as good as the team leader and the minions who presumably do as they are told on the day. You were delightful and helpful and cheerful. The service was superb, relaxed and efficient and the whole process was no less than a perfectly performed symphony without any note out of place, in perfect harmony. What can I say … it was perfection and you did a huge amount to make the day a great success.

Richard, Tithe Barn, December 2015

We just wanted to send a huge thank you to you and all the staff who made our wedding so fantastic. We received so many positive complements about both the high standard of food and the service you provided. It meant an awful lot for you to pull us aside for 10 minutes with some drinks and canapes – a chance for us to catch our breath and enjoy each others company. We could not have chosen better caterers thank Vanilla and you helped make our day run exceptionally smoothly

Ben & Hannah, Great Barn, November 2015
