Feedback from Abi and Tom
“A massive thank you for all your hard work that made the food at our wedding such a hit!
We were a little nervous about having a totally vegan wedding but so glad we did and it’s all thanks to you guys!
So many guests said how great the food was including many hardened carnivores.
We could tell such a huge amount of work and care went into each mouthful.
We had such a lovely wedding day, even though it flew by in a blur.
Thanks so much again for going above and beyond the call of duty and delighting us, our families and all our guests with sumptuous vegan food.
Love Abi and Tom x”
