Through our work catering weddings and other functions for clients, as well as through our own wedding, we have had the privilege of working with some amazing suppliers.  Below are some contacts who we feel provide an amazing service and who we trust enough to recommend.  We don’t receive referral fees from these suppliers.  We offer them here simply because with many options available, it can be difficult to determine which suppliers will provide the best quality service for your special occasion, and we can vouch for these few as “tried and tested”.
