Wedding - French Platter mains & Large Grazing Table for 70 Guests

Hi Nicky (+ the wider Verve team),

We just wanted to drop you a quick email to let you know how grateful and thankful we both are for the effort and attention to detail that you and your staff put into making our day perfect.  The food was unanimously praised by everyone.  A special shout out to that pork and the bean dish, fantastic...
The two wait staff that assisted during the afternoon were a massive help, as they made that 'unstructured' time during the grazing platter work amazingly well.  And also thanks so much for keeping that thing topped up I think it definitely helped a few people get to the end of the night.
All in all, I think everything went really well, and I don't think we could have had the day we had without the food being what it was, which was exactly how we envisaged it being.  Once again thanks so much for your help on the day and in the lead up to the day, it is greatly appreciated.
Cheers,  Mr and Mrs Lees (:P)

Wedding Catering - Canapés, main, dessert and supper for 80 people at Bramble Grove, Kaiapoi on 29 September 2018

Hi Nicky

I just wanted to say a quick thank you for tonight, the food was amazing and I had so many compliments to the chef, the venison was divine!!! As was everything else I personally thoroughly enjoyed the canapés!! Thank you so much for making the planning process so easy and exciting. I appreciate everything you you did for us and all the extras you allowed us to do that we wouldn’t have been able to achieve/afford with another company.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
