We are proud of the work we do. Below are a selection of our testimonials across various events that we cater for; weddings, corporate events and private dining. We hope you enjoy reading them and if you would like to speak to any of our past clients please do not hesitate to ask.
Liz and I wanted to express our warmest thanks to you, the whole Saffron team and Capel Manor team. A special thanks too for Tim who was no short of a human dynamo on the day.
All of you made the experience one that will stay with us forever. Every single friend and family member praised the venue, the professionalism of the staff and the quality of the food (dinner and BBQ) –
For me and Liz it was the best meal and party we’ve ever been to!
Though we did nearly get sun stroke…and were slightly pink afterwards!
Liz & Karl
I just wanted to get in touch to say THE BIGGEST THANK YOU of all to you and your team for making our wedding day the day it was.
In the lead up to the day, Kelly you were such a pleasure to work with.
Gareth thanks for the most delicious food (I hear the veggie/vegan option was a real hit too) and Kelly just thank you for being you.
We hope Saffron continues to grow and thrive – you deserve every success.
Lisa and Monty xxxx
A huge thank you to you and the team for delivering such great service on our wedding day.
Excellent! Anybody that chooses you guys for their event has made a great choice!!
I was socialising so much that I didn’t get to eat as much as I wanted to!! But the memories have stayed which is the main thing 🙂
Wishing you and Gareth all the best with Saffron!!
I have used Saffron Caterers and Events for the last two years for one of the most prestigious events in our calendar- our annual private roundtable dinner for the chief operating officers of some of the largest financial institutions in the world.
Saffron takes care of everything and it is delivered and executed with such precision and care
Kelly, in particular, is like our security blanket, with her involved, nothing can go wrong!
I cannot recommend Saffron highly enough.
Fiona McLoughlin, VP Marketing, Fenergo,
What a magical day we had on Saturday, we cannot thank you enough for the delicious canapes, starter, main and pudding and for helping create such a beautiful dining room!
You looked after us so beautifully and everyone told us how delicious the food was which we whole heartedly agree with!
You were all absolutely amazing and we were so happy that we could relax in the knowledge that we were in safe hands. If we have any parties in the future, we will come your way!
Lots of Love Iona
And thank you for your card as well.
Best wishes to you and Gareth and wishing you every success for the future.
David & Susan
We are just sat at the airport about to head off to Spain but wanted to send a quick email to say a massive thank you for Saturday.
Everyone we have spoken to loved the food and the canapés were a huge hit.
Once again thanks for making it such a great day.
Emma & Ed
When we first met Kelly and Gareth for the food tasting, we knew immediately that Saffron would be the right choice for Rachel and Liam’s wedding; the food was amazing and we knew that the Saffron team would do a great job.
I can honestly say that I have never come across anyone who has put so much into an event as you did on Saturday.
We are all so grateful to you.
Nothing was too much trouble and they dealt with the constant stream of requests from me, and from our guests, with such patience and good humour.
With very best wishes and kind regards,
Just a short note to thank you and your staff for all your hard work on Saturday.
The day ran very smoothly and without you both it wouldn’t have done so.
The food was excellent, and everyone commented how enjoyable it was. So, thank you both.
I know what hard work it is in the catering world but you both made it look easy so thank you from us all. With bests wishes to you both.
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all of your help and support in the run up to our wedding, and on the day itself. We had SUCH an amazing time, and our guests absolutely loved it!
We’ve had so many comments about how well organised the day was, how beautiful the venue, how good the food was and what a full-on party it was!
You and all the team did a fantastic job.
Jo and Cris
Hi Kelly, once again, a huge thanks to you, Gareth and all your team for all your help and for making the event the success it was.
The food was amazing and we received so many compliments about it.
Really looking forward to working again with you 🙂
Hello from Mr and Mrs White!
We’re back to reality after two weeks on planet honeymoon and we wanted to drop you a note to say thank you so much to you, Gareth and all the other staff that worked so hard to make our day so perfect.
Throughout the whole wedding planning experience, we were so impressed with the level of quality. The fact that your food was amazing and that you made the effort to come to us to do the tasting (we had to go to the others, often on a not very nice industrial estate) really sealed the deal as far as we were concerned.
Thanks again for everything. Wishing Saffron all the very best for the future.
Harriet and Tom
Within 5 minutes of meeting Gareth and Kelly we knew Saffron would cater our wedding.
They really listened to what we wanted and came up with ideas to help shape our thoughts… above and beyond the call of duty!
The food was outstanding in both taste and presentation. My aunt said “the food was the best I’ve ever had at a wedding”.
We’re so pleased we chose Saffron and can’t thank them enough for their huge contribution to our day.
Quinton & Carolyn
Gareth, the food was absolutely stunning. I had to refrain from picking up a canapé every single time they came round, for fear of looking greedy! They were all delicious and beautifully presented.
Kelly, I was so grateful and impressed with your incredible organisational skills and support. I couldn’t have done it without you!
Thank you ever so much,
Juliet, Book Launch at The Crypt – Stoke Newington
The thank-you letters for Nicky and Rich’s wedding have been tumbling onto our hall floor:
- ‘food and drink markedly good’
- ‘never ending delicious food and drink charmingly delivered’,
- ‘the catering was stunning’
- ‘the dinner was really delicious – such a clever chef to get the beef just right for all those numbers’,
- ‘the canapés were superb’
We completely agree with our guests. Thank you!
Yours sincerely, David and Jeanette Kent-Lemon
I wanted to say thank you so much for all of your help on our wedding.
From the initial meeting onwards we always felt that we were in the hands of professionals who would look after us, and our faith was entirely justified.
All our guests had a wonderful time, and really loved the food as well.
Thank you again,
Arany & Dave
A very big thank-you to you and your team for helping to make our party a very special event.
Many people I spoke to commented on the quality of the food, but you really do make it easy for everyone to enjoy themselves.
It was good to meet Gareth briefly – you also make a formidable team and we’re sure Saffron will become a very sought-after company.
Good luck to you both.
Peter and Milena
We’ve just got back from our week away in the Lake District and wanted to write and say thank you so much for all your hard work in helping us have the most incredible wedding day last weekend – we honestly couldn’t have had a better day, particularly with the glorious sunshine!
Thank you so much to you and to Gareth for everything you did and for all your help and advice along the way – it has been so reassuring to know we were in such safe pairs of hands throughout.
A huge thank you once again & hope you’re having a lovely Easter weekend!
Rachel & Nick
Not only was everyone super-efficient and friendly, they looked like they were enjoying the party as much as we were.
The food was delicious- we’ve lost count of how many people have complimented the food. The room was set up exactly as we wanted. The bar was run so well – no mean feat with our friends and family!
We can’t recommend Saffron Catering enough. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Sarah & Ed
The whole process of working with Saffron has been a joy from start to finish.
Throughout the months leading up to the big day it was apparent that we were dealing with more than just a firm of caterers.
You were flexible when necessary and quickly adapted to the amended plan when rain changed the original schedule, working with me to ensure that our guests were not inconvenienced by the change of plan.
I hope we can work together again in the future.
We couldn’t have asked for more to be done and appreciate all the little touches you guys did. The staff were friendly and very helpful, and you guys coped well with all our mad kids running around.
So, many thanks to you all and thank you for our wedding card. How thoughtful of you.
Take care & well done,
Amy & Andi
