Rob and I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your hard work on Saturday. The food was absolutely delicious, everyone commented on how much they loved it. It was really everything that we hoped for, I loved the lamb and the pavlova was to die for!
Also thank you for being so flexible and pushing the timings back, I’m sure that wasn’t easy at the last minute. Sarah you did an absolutely amazing job at managing everything and making sure it all went without a hitch so thank you so much. We really did have the best day and thank you for your part in that.
Polly & Rob
A huge thanks you for your absolutely jaw breaking effort to give us the best food ever at our wedding. It was more than we could ever have hoped for and we have had so many compliments from our guests there on the day. The lamb in particular was mouth-watering .We tried to recreate it yesterday on our BBQ but it was not a patch on yours . We also want to thank you for making the process so easy for us. It was so welcome to have absolute faith that you were going to provide excellent service, that we could relax and enjoy our day.
Claire and Phil
I have been thinking about writing this note every day since the wedding earlier this month, but have not thought of any better words than to say a huge THANK YOU for the delicious meal and fine service that Catering for Suffolk provided us all with at Clare and Philips’ wedding.
A wedding meal for over 200 guests is a huge undertaking for any caterers, but you made it seem easy – even if you were paddling very hard underneath!
As soon as Clare and Philip met with William they had every confidence that William had “got” what they wanted and understood the type of meal they hoped for. You did not let us down and indeed surpassed expectations!
Delicious food right through, cooked carefully and expertly from hot and cold canapés through to the “starter” and then the beautifully BBQed joints of meat with those delicious salads and finished off with the fantastic tarte tatins (which I am still licking my lips over all these days later – or is that Clare and Philips’ home made limoncello!?)
Sarah had complete control of all the “front of house” staff – Nothing seemed to be too much trouble and all sorts of little extra touches were noticed by me and others that you went the extra mile – Indeed a cousin of mine (who was in catering) was delighted to be served the fresh mint tea at the end of the evening and was impressed!
In many of the thank you letters I have received, your delicious food and capable, friendly staff have been “mentioned in despatches” for helping the whole day go so well.
From early planning and the yummy trial evening, to “the day”, to the final clearing up, I felt confident that all would be well ….. even when our numbers grew significantly ….. and it was, thanks to you both and all your hard work.
So all I can do is repeat my big THANK YOU!!
I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you did for us. Obviously on our wedding day itself, but equally, if not more so, for the support, time and energy you gave to us when we were planning. I was busy but I was never stressed or upset, I actually really enjoyed putting it all together, it allowed me to stretch the creative side of my brain a bit. But I wouldn’t have been able to do that if you guys hadn’t had such a positive, enabling attitude. I expected to be pushing suppliers out of their comfort zones and convincing them to try things differently. Instead you pushed my creative boundaries and did all of the how-to-make-this-work thinking for me. It was so refreshing, reassuring and exciting.
And Good Grief The Food. We’re still getting compliments! So many people have said it’s the best wedding they’ve ever been to (many of whom are old enough to have been to quite a few weddings) and everyone knows the food makes the wedding!
We’re still a bit overwhelmed by the whole thing, but particularly how amazing you were to work with. Let me know if there is ever anything either of us can do for you. We really are so grateful.
When you plan any special occasion, in this case my wife Fiona’s 40th birthday party, you want everything to go to plan. I cannot thank William and his team from Catering for Suffolk enough for catering Fiona’s special weekend.
We had a number of guests with allergies and everything was taken care off with a minimum of fuss. The food was nothing short of spectacular. The amazing BBQ, an epic dinner party and wonderful brunch to finish off an incredible weekend. If you have a party or celebration and need a caterer, give William a ring, you won’t be disappointed.
Thank you, everything was perfect.
Mike and Fiona
Thank you so much. Everyone was full of compliments for the food (the pigeon was just delicious!) and the relaxed but efficient service – it made for a perfect atmosphere.
Can I say an enormous thank you to you and Sarah, together with your team of able colleagues I was so pleased with the quality of the food and the warmth and efficiency of the service you provided. My guests were hugely impressed and it made all the difference to my party – I was able to relax and enjoy, knowing that my friends were being very well looked after. I will most definitely employ your services again in the future, should the need arise!
Just a quick email to say thank you again for a fantastic tasty meal last night. Everyone enjoyed it and looking at all the empty plates I think you could see that for yourself . Thank your family for their attentive and friendly approach.
You made Kimberlys hen weekend perfect!
You guys were tremendous, as I said to Sarah on the night, I hadn’t thought you could have made the food any tastier than the tasting, but wow – it was incredible on the day! Everyone raved about it and the chips were a huge hit! Thank you both and your staff for being perfect for us 🙂
Yogi & Matt
We would also like to say a long overdue thank you for everything you did for us. We had a wonderful day that was complimented by the beautiful food and the quiet, professional and friendly service. You and Sarah (and all your staff) worked so hard to provide exactly the atmosphere that we were looking for. We have has so many compliments on the food and there wasn’t a hungry person in the whole barn (which given some of the appetites is quite a feat)! The vegetarians/vegans were particularly thrilled to have such an interesting dish, far in excess of what they are usually provided with!
We are very grateful to Sarah for clearing up after the excesses of youth. This was beyond the call of duty!
Kate and James
Thank you, thank you, thank you
I know we were a nightmare as we did it all ourselves it meant so much to us that you came and soldiered on and delivered the most beautiful and mouth-watering shepherds pie (set the bar really high thanks for that!) and chocolate torte and canapés (those sausage rolls and that curry!). Sarah you organised the tipi and I know you struggled with the space but it all worked and we had the happiest of weddings.
Buckets of love and thanks
Bex and Ben
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for the incredible food you made for our wedding! Along with our guests, we were completely blown away – it was delicious!
If you ever start a restaurant in London, let us know!
Lily & Rich
We just wanted to drop you a little note to say thank you sooooo much for the most amazing wedding food ever! All of our guests raved about our food, many of which are still talking about how amazing it all was! One of our bridesmaids mum has made the green salad numerous times since the wedding with the recipe you gave her!
Food aside, we both wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all your organisation, help, support and service, both before and during the wedding. Sarah you were amazing, as were all the other staff (please pass on our thank you to them all).
You made sure our day ran without a hitch and we cant thank you enough. Our friends and family loved you all too!
Thank you again!
I just wanted to say a big thank you for the amazing food and service you all supplied for us this weekend. To have our food cooked fresh and served in the location we were staying was better than going to any restaurant and I would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone.
Thank you again!
Thank you so much for all your work on the day and in the lead up to it. The food was fantastic, and I’ve heard nothing but good things from the other guests.
William and Sarah
What a fabulous meal you cooked for us! Everyone loved the food you made and it was absolutely delicious from the canapés all the way through! You were really wonderful in every way. You made everything run so smoothly and so peacefully, which contributed to making the whole atmosphere so splendid and lively. We all had the most fantastic time thanks to Sarah, your quiet and brilliant hands on (and off) organisation as well as William’s culinary delights that we were all charmed by.
How can I thank you both for your creativity, artistry and professionalism! Please will you thank your team to on our behalf too. Their cheerfulness and smiley faces made all the hard work that they were doing feel light and joyful to us on the receiving end. No one wanted for anything!I might be very biased, but honestly, in all my experience, that was the very best wedding I ever went to and so much of that was most definitely thanks to all of you. With so much appreciation from a very happy bride, groom and Mother of her first married daughter! Hooray!
An immense thanks to both you and Sarah for the incredible food – everyone has said it was the best wedding food they ever had!!!
xxx THANK YOU xxx
Dani and Tim
Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding so brilliant and delicious!
We have had sooooo many comments about the food – a lot of people its the first thing they say! it was scrummy and just our kind of thing. The imam biyaldi went down particularly well, and all the salads were so beautiful as well as being delicious!
Also, Sarah, thank you so much for running everything so brilliantly well. It was so reassuring to have someone so charming and so clearly in control of everything to keep things running smoothly!
It was an absolute pleasure to meet you both, and to go through the process of designing the menu together and tasting, everything was brilliant, such a wonderful experience.
Lucy and George
You managed the island’s difficulties effortlessly, the logistics with the tides and distance from the cottage to the venue were dealt with without complaint, which really did make it more relaxing for us! The only complaint is that we all wanted third helpings of that delicious pork! (greedy friends).
I just wanted to email and say Thank you so much for providing the food and table service for Saturday evening at Milden Barn. All our guests really enjoyed the food and said how delicious it was!
We really appreciate the effort that would have gone into preparing the food and it was perfect for what Laura wanted. Also my thanks are passed onto the servers who provided brilliant service throughout the evening, and good humour when accosted by some members of the hen party!!
Vicky, Rosanna and Laura
Just wanted to say thank you for making our wedding so special. The duck confit and the pizza cooked in the wood oven were superb and all your bar staff were great at keeping people inebriated enough to dance. If either of us get married again we will definitely use you as caterers!
THANK YOU so much for all the hard work you put in to help our day be so special. From the initial tasting you were so helpful in giving advice based on your experiences which helped us plan the day, and on the day you were fantastic! William working hard to produce sensational food (which our guests loved) and Sarah ensuring everything ran smoothly and sorting out anything and everything she could! And finally liaising with Pippa and Simon and sorting out all the clear up leaving us undisturbed on our honeymoon!
Susy and Dom
Thanks for the great food and service on Friday night we had a lot of positive feedback. The fact that when I checked to see how you were doing later in the evening and found the kitchen clean and tidy and all of you gone is a testament to the good operation! The serving staff all did a great job. So thanks to all!
Thanks once again to you and your staff.
We were looking for some caterers for our wedding and as soon as we met William and Sarah we knew we would use them.
They are a great duo and have a real passion and enthusiasm for authentic food. Our Wedding breakfast was Mexican food and the research and level of detail they put in ensured that we got a stunning menu delivered by a really professional outfit.
The hard work you both put it was evident and we just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for everything you did. Your enthusiasm towards food gave us so much confidence in what would be served on the day.
The food was stunning. I can’t tell you how many compliments we got, and are still getting now. We couldn’t have wished for better.
I’ve even been asked for the recipe for the samphire salad – any chance you could tell me what was in the dressing – or is it top secret?
Your help over the past few months has been greatly appreciated – from menu planning to tableware ordering and setting up – you’ve both been absolute stars and helped make our day as perfect as it was.
The staff were faultless – I don’t even notice they were there. Which shows how well organised everything was.
So again, thank you. It was an absolute pleasure meeting you both and best of luck in the future.
Emma & Neil
At one point, one of my uncles was asking if he could take a doggy bag of lamb home and he’s been scouring the internet for the recipe himself! The black dhal was also a huge hit (a few people said they could have eaten an entire bowl of it themselves!) and many of our friends from London compared our menu directly to Dishoom’s! Looks like you guys really hit the mark!
Also, Sarah and the team did an absolutely stellar job and I’m extremely grateful for their patience, especially when setting up on the Friday when we all learned that I’m not very good at counting!
We will definitely come back to you for any future events we plan to host – perhaps a Diwali party?!
Anglo Indian Wedding
Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and Sarah for everything over the weekend! The food couldn’t have gone down better – my in laws couldn’t believe it was cooked by an English chef and they were totally blown away! Also, the staff were all fabulous and so polite – a real credit to you both!
Thanks again! It was definitely a meal we won’t forget!
