Claire and Paul seem to have been in my diary for ages and that’s because they have!

Claire and Paul wanted something very different to the normal wedding food that they had eaten in the past, they truly wanted wedding catering that told their story.

They celebrated their tipi wedding at Bridgehouse barn, with Peak tipis, and Lee Garland took the photos with his skilful eye!

Here’s what they said:

“Hi Thomas and team!

We would like to say a huge thank you to you all for providing us with an absolutely amazing spread of food for our wedding on Saturday. It was so incredibly delicious and that shin of beef was unbelievable! So many of our guests commented on how tasty the food was too.

We both love our food so it was an important part of the day for us, and you really did provide a top notch service all round. You have been so helpful throughout the planning stages, answering our questions and coming up with a bespoke menu personal to us, all of which really has made the whole experience just perfect!

You’re a great team and we’re so glad you were part of making our wedding absolutely awesome!

Thanks again”

Paul and Claire (Mr and Mrs Smart)
