Dear Simon,

Before my year as Master of the Guild fades into the distant past, I wanted to thank you and your team for all your support over the past year. Much of the success of the Guardians’ events is inextricably linked to the fine fare, excellent service and efficient organisation of your team. So again, thank you, and I look forward to the opportunity to appreciate all of this without the interruption of having to make speeches and announcements in the future!
With best wishes

Hi Abigail,

I was just emailing to say thank you to you and your team for being so wonderful before and on our wedding day.  We had a fantastic day and that was mostly because of you guys; keeping things moving, providing wonderful food, not minding too much when someone broke a plate (still not sure how he dropped his knife and shattered the plate), amongst a million other things you did for us.

I hope dealing with all our guests wasn’t too taxing for you.

Anyway, thank you again for helping us make our day so special.

Best wishes

Gemma & Michael

Gemma & Michael’s smashing day. — The Lord Mayors Mansion House, Clifton.

Hi Abigail,

Thank you for your lovely message, and sorry it’s taken us a little while to reply. We and all of our guests had an absolutely brilliant day and we’re more than happy to let you have some feedback (all good!).

You and Simon have been so much help in organising our wedding – we were able to do exactly what we wanted, and you were also helpful when we didn’t know what we wanted (really good to have the benefit of your experience of organising weddings!) Things like food options for the season, timings for the day etc. You were also amazing when we had to reschedule – it really was above and beyond anything we could’ve asked for. We are so grateful for that.

On the Friday and the day itself Chloe was great  – she was totally on top of things, nothing was too much trouble and her lovely friendly attitude really helped us to enjoy ourselves. Little things like making sure me and Rich had drinks and giving everyone a little longer to enjoy the sunshine before dinner was great. We didn’t have to think about anything on the day – it felt like it all just happened naturally, we just got to relax and enjoy ourselves. I’m sure Chloe must have been exhausted at the end of it! My parents also had really lovely things to say about the day and about you all (and they’ve been involved in more weddings than me!).

Also – we have had so many compliments about the food! Everyone loved it – you catered really well for everyone (we had a lot of very happy vegans). Everyone said I wouldn’t be able to eat at my own wedding (nerves?) but your food proved them all wrong.

So a massive thank you to you all! You made the whole experience really enjoyable and stress-free.

Best wishes and thanks again,

Bryony and Rich

Dear Simon
Thank you so much for your enormous contribution to the success of our dinner last Friday. The canapés before the meal were all delicious and the meal itself was superb, hot, well-presented and beautifully cooked. The asparagus was perfect in flavour and texture, the lamb beautifully tender and the rhubarb panna cotta so light and well-flavoured, a lovely way to end the meal. Service of both food and wine was quick and efficient and your staff did a thoroughly excellent job. We could not have been more pleased.
As you know we may be hosting a similar event in about 18 months time and if we do, I shall have no hesitation in asking you to cater it.
Leonie.

Hi Simon,

No not at all – thank you!! We had an absolutely amazing time and I had so many comments from people about the food in particular saying it was incredible… so much so that I had people asking if they could get the recipes.
Could we provisionally hold Saturday 21st April? We would really love to use the City Hall again next year but obviously it’s up to the new committee and depends on our financial standing next year.
Thanks again for a great evening,
Emily.

Hello,

I just wanted to get in touch to praise the venue and staff on the success of the Lang wedding that took place on Saturday 15th April at The Mansion House.

Myself (sister of the groom), my partner and little girl had a fantastic day. The venue itself was beautiful and a perfect environment for a wedding.

The staff were wonderful and made such an effort to make everyone feel welcome and were wonderfully tolerant and professional with so many children running around all day!

The food was beautifully presented and simply delicious.

When speaking with my brother (Mr C Lang) he couldn’t praise the venue enough for their help and professionalism when planning the day.

He explained that wedding’s were a relatively new venture for The Mansion House and its team of staff. With this in mind I felt it was only polite to tell what a wonderful job you did.

Many thanks for all of your help and for a wonderful day.

Kind regards

Good afternoon all,

Apologies for the delay in sending you this note, however I only got back into the office on Tuesday, and having been away since last Wednesday there’s been some catching up to do.

This note is to thank you all most sincerely for the part you each played in the running of the CIMA President’s Lunch last Friday.

We consider that the event was a huge success, which was only achievable by us all pulling together – which we did.

Thank you again.

With best wishes

Thank you again to you and all your staff for all your efforts on Sunday.

It was a memorable day for all of us, largely made possible by the excellent service from Parsnip Mash.

Thanks very much

Hi Simon

 

I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you so much for the catering arrangements earlier this evening.  Once again you and the team raised the bar, and we had really great feedback from the guests about the quality of the canapes, which were delightful, and beautifully presented.

Thank you for that, I know that this was a small event for you, but your support really helped to make this a special evening to remember for the Guardians and their guests.

All the best,

Richard
