Weddings & Civil Partnerships
We recently got married at a village hall and had a summer garden party style buffet with canapes. Michele and her team were professional and helpful from initial contact right through to our big day. The food was incredible and all my guests commented on how nice it was. The team on the day made sure every ran like clockwork and everyone was well looked after. They did such a fab job and I would recommend them to anyone planning an event. It was just as I wished it be! Thank You so much Truly Scrumptious!

We are now en route to the airport for our honeymoon, but we wanted to thank you for the fantastic food on our wedding day!
We have received so many compliments about the exquisite canapes, delicious food and wonderful service. The antipasti starter was spectacular, and several people asked whether we had Jamie Oliver out the back in the catering tent. Better - we had Jamie of Truly Scrumptious! The slow roasted lamb was amazing, and all of our Welsh family members thoroughly approved. The puds were out of this world. I even saw the best man mixing a cocktail with the raspberry coulis and our fizz - delicious!
All of your team worked so hard, and it was such a hot day - thank you! They were so friendly and discrete, and made sure that all of our guests were so well looked after. We appreciate how much hard work goes on behind the scenes, so we are very grateful indeed.
We hope you all had a moment to relax on Sunday. You do live up to your name - your food is "truly scrumptious"!

We really did love all of your food and your suggestion of sharing platters was absolutely the right thing for us. Thank you for all of your suggestions which we found invaluable and thank you for being so supportive from the planning stage right to the end. Knowing that you knew what to do was an immense comfort to me and it enabled me to enjoy the parties on both days.

Patrick and I will write a proper thank you in due course but we wanted to email you now to say such a huge thank you to you and your team for making our wedding so special yesterday.
The food looked fantastic, it tasted utterly sublime and your waiting staff were nothing short of perfection. So many people commented on the food and the staff and about how fantastic it all was. Michele, you really, really made the wedding reception what it was. Thank you so much.
Lucia & Patrick (marquee, Preston Bissett)
Just to say thank you again for doing such a stupendous job for our wedding. I don't think we could have got everything sorted without you! You were amazing from start to finish. We had an awesome day, and so many people said it was the best wedding food they had ever had. The sharing pies and crostini worked beautifully.
Isabel & Giles (marquee, Appleton)
Thanks for everything you and Jamie have done. We had a great day on Saturday and we have had lots – and I do mean lots! – of comments on how great the food was!
Barry, father of the groom (Riverside Weddings, Standlake)
Thank you Michele and Jamie for your wonderful food and service. Our guests are still talking about the fabulous food a month later and are trying to recreate your dishes at home. Your food was exactly what I wanted - special but homely with great ingredients and lots of flavour - real food! The spice rubbed beef and beetroot/feta/mint dip were massive hits. Not a chicken breast with steamed new potato in sight! .... Thank you also for being massively supportive in the run up to the wedding, including helping us develop a personalised menu, and meeting with us at the venue twice to plan the day. The personal touch you brought was much appreciated. Our only problem now is working out a good excuse to use you again!
Jenny & Gary (Fison Barn, Little Wittenham)
An enormous thank you for the catering. You and your team were amazing, pre, during and post the wedding. The food was truly scrumptious as befitting your name :) So may people mentioned the food, drink, service and set up. In all cases, it was the "best" food ever enjoyed at a wedding. On a personal note, without you in situ, I would have been considerably more anxious and unable to relax on the day. Tim and I have the most wonderful, warm, happy and joyful memories from our Wedding Day coupled with a lot of fun. A large part of that is down to you - thank you Michele.
Ros & Tim (Manor Farm, West Challow)
'What fabulous food' was one of the quotes of the day yesterday and that was thanks to Michele's superb planning, Jamie's expert cooking and your staff serving and working hard to keep everyone happy. It really was wonderful food - I think that the ham and meringues came for mention most frequently! Thank you very much indeed for your very important contribution to a really special, happy, flowing day - everything went as hoped for and better"...."We would be delighted to recommend you on any site or as a personal reference should you want it, without hesitation. The whole experience of having you as our wedding caterers has been excellent, from first contact through to clean kitchen.
Liz & Ian (Tackley Village Hall)
I don't know quite how to begin thanking you for the extraordinary amount of hard work that must have gone into making Lara and Stephen's wedding reception such a success. Everyone loved the food - because it was DELICIOUS! The whole day was a joy from start to finish and it was wonderful to wake up on the Saturday morning knowing that you were in charge. You have been a pleasure to work with from the very beginning: always efficient and approachable and giving helpful suggestions. Thank you so much. I am recommending you to everyone and anyone who will listen.
Gilly, mother of the bride (The King's Centre, Oxford)
I would like to say how very, very delighted we were with the food; lots of plaudits from guests......carnivores and veggies alike......re: the quality and an email this morning from one (vegetarian) who said it was "the best wedding menu I have ever had". The sociability of passing and sharing dishes presented to each table, rather than each person, was also really great. Lastly I would like to say how much your calm and charm were appreciated - especially as a field in the middle of nowhere and rain pouring down half way through is not the ideal when catering for nearly 200 people! Many thanks for delivering so well on this very important occasion for us.
Ali, mother of the bride (marquee, Beckley)
From the first Michele, of Truly Scrumptious, understood what we wanted in terms of style and 'feel' and was responsive to this in all stages of the planning. In fact I would say she actively helped us to think through and achieve our goals, including on cost. We ended up with exactly what we wanted.
The follow through was also excellent: Michele provided us with a complete breakdown of everything needed, including clarification of responsibilities, and we also worked through the timetable with her in detail. As a result, on the day I felt totally confident and was able to relax and enjoy every moment of our daughter's wedding. Everything went to plan and the food was delicious. A very big thank you to Truly Scrumptious for being alongside us at every stage.
