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”

  1. How wonderful to cater for such a special occasion. The food sounds wonderful!
    My friend in Germany works for a catering company and they were asked to cater for a wedding of 150 people!
    What you do is without a doubt one of the most important opportunities to show vegans/veggies and omnivores how fabulous a cruelty-free menu can be. 🙂

      • It’s actually a regular caterer but they were asked to cater for this vegan wedding.
        In Germany, veganism is HUGE at the moment. I’ve been researching an article about it and it’s incredibly exciting and encouraging. I’ll post an update on Facebook/blog when the magazines come out, if you are interested.
        I hope I’ll get to taste your food one day – not just look at it 🙂

        It sounds amazing in Germany and veganism seems to be getting big everywhere, exciting times.

    The food sounds delicious! I have also tried your food at events and really enjoyed it. My favourite is the creamy nut roast and Bakewell tart.
