Windlesham Mid-Summer Wedding
We chose ChiChiBites to cater for our wedding following meeting Miranda at a business launch garden party where she provided the canapés. The flavours she used were so unique, and the presentation was excellent, showing attention to detail.
For our reception we had a marquee in Tim’s parents’ garden, it was very important to us for everything to be very personal to us and our families. At our first meeting with Miranda, she really took the time to understand this and how we wanted the food to compliment our ideas/ theme. We liaised via email on menu suggestions, and we had a canapé tasting evening with both our parents. This was a great evening, and really confirmed our confidence in Miranda as our caterer.
Once we’d confirmed our menu, we had a bride and groom main course and dessert tasting, where we made our final adjustments to the menu, as well as talked about crockery/ tableware. Miranda had been to a local supplier and brought some examples for us to look at, which worked so well with having the sample menu to see how it all looked together.
For our cake, we wanted a cheese tower. Miranda suggested a few places that we could source this, one of which was the Hampton Cheese & Wine company. Miranda took us to their cafe where we must have tasted over 20 different cheeses! The owner was very knowledgeable and spent a lot of time helping us choose the perfect cheeses. It was a really fun evening!
During the run up to the wedding, Miranda made several site visits to the garden to help organise the planning and how the marquee was set up, the flow of guests and running of the day including considering back stage areas/ catering tent.
On the day, Miranda was front of house and organised all food and staff to a very high standard. Miranda really did go above and beyond throughout all of the planning and on our actual wedding day.
We have such fond memories from the whole day and know that Miranda and her team played such a vital role in making it run so smoothly and be so special. Our family have since used Miranda again for another party that we have had and we would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone else.
