Ok, so tomorrow we visit go to the second in our potential catering services. The very first, who I’m unsure whether it’s fair to mention them at this time, began badly and did not finish up far better, for entirely different reasons than I was expecting. When Ashleigh (my own wedding coordinator and bride) contacted the very first caterer they greatly portrayed a mindset of “when not on the menu only then do we do not do it”, that we felt was particularly unhelpful and almost caused me to veto them without meeting them.
To leap back for any minute and finish the image, Ashleigh and that i are generally of the mind the drinks and food offered in the wedding ought to be a showcase from the produce of Kent because the Garden of England, with in your area sourced produce. For instance My first action on provisionally booking the venue ended up being to contact the drinks supplier and be sure that the best Sheppard Neame summer time ale could be readily available for the date we’d selected – thankfully it’s.
Therefore, the attitude from the first caterers that people spoke to wasn’t encouraging. We, however, with a balanced view, arranged a trip to talk to them. In the middle of proceedings my negative attitude was starting to waver once the chef offered us having a plate of the very most amazing canapes. It was insufficient though and i believe the ultimate two nails within the coffin were that: 1. They needed £400 deposit in front of you formal tasting session and a pair of. The lady who ran the organization was an occasions organiser whom couldn’t restrain herself and constantly poked her nose into proceedings intimating that they wish to be organising the entire day. Not happening!
