This is just a quick note to say thank you so very much for Saturday. You and your team worked tirelessly to make everything perfect and we had an absolutely amazing day. We had so many complimentary comments about the venue, catering and staff. Thank you for everything!
Chantelle & Martin

Taste Buds catered for our wedding at Aldwick in February and they were amazing. The food was great, and they were so helpful with menu choices, the service was fantastic! Special thanks to Emma for being so amazing – we had the best day and can’t recommend them enough.
Stephanie & Oliver

Thank you for catering to our wedding at Aldwick on the 25th May, your food was amazing (everyone was full!) your attention to detail was excellent and the staff were brilliant. Carly and the team did an amazing job and would recommend them to anyone. Thanks again.
Karen & Phil

Taste Buds catered for our wedding on Saturday and the food was amazing!! We had lots of people commenting about how amazing it tasted! Thank you again.
Catherine & Martyn

Taste Buds catered for our wedding at Aldwick Estate and the food was amazing! All of our guests loved it. The whole team was amazing and so professional throughout, especially Emma, she had thought of everything and helped us as a couple to take a couple of minutes every now and again to take in the day as it flew by. The extra touches of saving us some canapés to make sure we ate something before the meal and leaving a platter of the buffet food in our room was such a lovely and thoughtful touch. Emma became like a friend during the planning process, so it was lovely to have her there on our special day. We had the best day and would love to do it all again. We can’t thank you enough.
Love Mr & Mrs Lucas

Taste Buds did a great job of catering our wedding at Aldwick Estate. We were originally nervous that the venue had an exclusive caterer (what if we didn’t like the food?), but our tasting session put us completely at ease. They somehow managed to cook perfectly medium-rare lamb for a crowd of 80+ and our guests commented on how good the food was. We also appreciated all their sensible guidance on drinks quantities. Carly – who coordinated the food at our wedding – was a delight to work with.
Rachel & Tim

We got married a couple of weeks ago at Aldwick Estate and Carly and the Taste Buds team were fantastic! They literally thought of everything, even to the little touches of letting the two flower girls of ages 9 & 10 have fruit juice in tumblers instead of just fruit shoot bottles (which they loved feeling grown up) Everyone complimented the food, the mini burgers were popular with everyone! The raspberry cheesecake was our personal fave! Couldn’t thank them enough and would highly recommend!
Joanna & Oliver

I cannot recommend Taste Buds enough, the food was incredible, the staff were extremely professional and worked very hard on what turned out to be the hottest day so far this year. Your attention to detail was impressive, just what the bride & groom wanted as did all the guests who commented on the food. Thank you once again for a memorable day.
Mrs Crompton

I just wanted to drop a quick email to say thanks ever so much for everything you and your team did to make our day perfect. All the food was absolutely amazing, and we had loads of comments from our guests to say how impress they were with the quality and standard of the food. Also had several comments from guests to say professional all your staff were on the day. Thank you once again.
Rachel & Kevin

Before heading off on honeymoon tomorrow, we wanted to send you a quick email to thank you for everything you did for us yesterday. Thanks to you guys, the day ran to absolute perfection and everybody had the most incredible time! Thank you for not only looking after us so well, but also all our guests. The entire staffing team are an absolute credit to you.
Holly & Rob

Taste Buds provided the food for our wedding and they did not disappoint. Amazing food throughout the day made us and our guests very happy diners! Aside from the excellent

quality of the food, the staff are all incredibly friendly and helpful, nothing was too much to ask. Thank you, Taste Buds,!
Vicky & Martin

We got married at Aldwick Estate in August 2019 and Taste Buds did our catering. They were absolutely superb. The food was delicious, and they were unbelievably helpful in the lead up. They adapted the menu for children we had coming to our wedding and made each of them something they liked. They made my husband and myself feel so at ease and would highly recommend them!
Lucy & Nick

Taste Buds Catering Ltd were absolutely brilliant for our corporate party – they were able to step in at very short notice and managed to provide top quality food with excellent service and professionalism. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a company to take the reins, ensure everything runs smoothly and provide great food. Thank you.
Cervus Defence

We had Taste Buds cater at our wedding last month and I cannot recommend them enough, they were so helpful throughout the whole process. The food was amazing, and the staff were brilliant. A special mention to Carly who made sure everything went without any hiccups, stayed incredibly calm which put any nerves we had completely at ease. Thank you to everyone at Taste Buds
Amy and Alex

Taste Buds Catering did the food for our wedding in September. They were great, very accommodating for vegetarian, nut allergy and coeliac guests as well as the children at the wedding. The food was tasty and well presented and everything was on time and correct. They knew when to bring out the canapes, wedding breakfast and evening meal at the best time and really made our day easy!
Sophie & Cameron

Absolutely amazing! Emma in particular went above and beyond and helped me remain calm before I walked down the aisle. Lovely lady, we wouldn’t have wanted our wedding without her. Staff at Taste Buds fantastic and food amazing xxx
Chloe & Rick

Thank you to all the Taste Buds staff and especially Carly for putting up with me! We had our amazing wedding at Aldwick Court Farm and the food was second to none. Thank you very much x Victoria & Matthew

Amazing food. Amazing service. We used Taste Buds for our wedding in July 2019. The food was first class and everyone commented on how good it was. We had the BBQ option which went down very well. I would 100% recommend Taste Buds.
Tara & Dan

We had the BEST wedding food from Taste Buds. Emma went above and beyond from the moment we booked. We have received so many compliments about the food, thank you so much and thank you Emma for being amazing
Lydia & Mitchell

We used Taste Buds Catering for our wedding on 5th July 2019 and were absolutely BLOWN AWAY by the incredible food that was provided. Since the wedding we have had countless compliments on how delicious the food was and having a BBQ menu was the best type of wedding meal they have had, and that is all down to Taste Buds for producing such delicious food from an incredible menu. The staff were absolutely 10/10 5* was start to finish of all wedding plans. Carly was with us every step of the way on our big day and we appreciate absolutely everything she did for us ensuring our day ran smoothly. Thank you so so much to Carly and everyone at Taste Buds for making our wedding day at Aldwick Estate absolutely perfect.
Bethan & Ryan

We used Taste Buds for our wedding on 17th August at Aldwick Estate. I cannot speak highly enough of them. Emma was always on hand for any queries, change in menu, odd requests (Dave with his love of sauces!!). She was my absolute rock through the whole lead up to the wedding. The food at our wedding was simply outstanding!!! Everyone, and I mean everyone, commented on the food saying it was the best they had ever tasted! The presentation, the flavour, the choice was all amazing. Thank you so much to all the Taste Buds team you are all such wonderful talented people.
Vicki & Dave

We can’t thank you guys enough!! We got married at Aldwick Estate on Friday and Taste Buds couldn’t do anymore for us, especially Emma! We had the best day ever and it was down to your amazing organisation, you truly made the day stress free for us both, and of course, the food was perfect! Taste Buds really do think of all the small things, even down to putting some of our evening food in our honeymoon suite so when the day was over, we could have a snack before bed, result! Thank you all again for your hard work, it really is appreciated!
Sarah & Scott

We can’t thank the Taste Buds team enough for being so wonderful in the lead up to our wedding day and on the day itself. All the guests have raved about how good the food was and we were blown away by how attentive the team were, making sure that all of our guests were happy, well-fed and well-watered! They were also so kind in accommodating last minutes changes and dietary requests. Carly and the team made it so that we could just sit back and enjoy the day, which was so precious – thank you, thank you, thank you.
Katie & Andrew

We had the most amazing wedding day at Aldwick. Sarah, Emma and the rest of the staff were so brilliant throughout the day and during the planning process, putting us at ease and making sure everything ran seamlessly. We had so many positive comments

about the food and the venue, and have nothing but wonderful memories of our special day. Thank you! Emma & Liam

Thanks so much for last Friday – it was a perfect day and we were so happy with everything about it.
Nicki & Steve

Just want to send our thanks to you for what was the most perfect day on Saturday. You are just awesome, what a dream team. We felt totally looked after and cared for and everything was so slick. Our guests loved the venue and food too. We’d like to do it all over again! We are so delighted that Aldwick was the first and only place we’d looked around and we ended up choosing, it was everything we wanted, and the weather played ball too which topped it all off. Thanks again for everything.

Holly and Justin

Please pass our thanks to everybody involved from Sandy, Chefs, Waitresses to Bar Staff. We had the best day ever and a day we will cherish forever. Thank you for everything.
Charlie and Angela

We had our wedding here in October and it was fantastic. The food was fantastic, we had so many comments about how good the food was. The venue was gorgeous aided by the beautiful weather but even without the sun it would be lovely. Perfect venue for our special day, Thank you to everyone
Kath & Tim

We had the most perfect day and really couldn’t have wished for anything better and I am sure it wouldn’t have been the same without all your help. So many of our guests said that it was the best wedding they had ever been to, and that the food was amazing! The day goes so quickly but you really made us appreciate all the details and helped us take it all in. Thank you again!
Amber & Nathan

Thank you so much to all of you. We honestly couldn’t have wished for a happier and more perfect day. The professionalism and warmth of the whole team was pointed out by a number of our guests who all said what a fantastic day it had been. Of course, it goes without saying that the food was brilliant too!
Sian & Alex

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for making our wedding such a special day. The food was fabulous and beautifully presented, but also tasted divine! The little details of canapes at our table, and a ploughman’s selection in our accommodation was amazing. Thank you for all your help throughout the whole process
Jane & Rob

Thank you for making our day very special indeed! The comments we have had from our guests on how superb your food and service were are endless. Thank you for putting in all the effort to plan everything so carefully and to all the staff on the day who made it happen
Samantha & Darren

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for such an amazing day on Saturday. We could not have chosen a more perfect venue for our wedding – the countryside setting, the beautiful barns, the fantastic food, and what really stood out was the level of service received from the very start of our booking to throughout the day itself from the Aldwick and Taste Buds Teams – we were so glad you were both involved with planning our day. We received so many compliments from our guests about the venue, the food, the wine and all the staff – the band also commented that it was one of the best venues they had been to. It was so reassuring for us to know that everything was so well organised and we didn’t need to worry about anything.
The food and wine were fantastic – the presentation and the flavours were all 5-star. For us, the pork, the garlic roasted peas & courgettes and the dauphinoise potatoes were highlights! And the trio of desserts was the perfect choice.
Alexandra & Steve

Fantastic, fantastic staff that where so helpful and accommodating for our big day. Thanks very much to every single one of you all that made our day awesome.
Jen & Emyr

Thank you for the most amazing day on Saturday. The food was brilliant! Everyone thought the food was great – we had a lot of comments!
Lisa & Phil

I just wanted to say a heartfelt thanks to you and all the staff who helped to make our ball such a roaring success. Everyone had a really fantastic time, and that is due in no short measure to your team and how smoothly the dinner service was run on the night – the waiting staff were really efficient, polite and amenable, and there were plenty of them so no large lags between all the tables and courses. I have not heard one single negative word about the evening, just people echoing what a great time they had.
Sidcot School

We can’t thank you enough for the brilliant time we all had on Saturday. The food, staff, everything, was absolutely amazing. So many people have said it’s the best wedding they have ever been to. The whole day was superb – we just wish we could do it again!
Sarah & Aidan

We had the most amazing day! Amazing weather, perfect venue! The food was incredible!! We had so many compliments! You were all brilliant and made everything run like clockwork! We would thoroughly recommend!
Emma & Ryan

Thank you to everyone who made our wedding day an absolute DREAM! My husband and I got married in April this year and our day couldn’t have been any more perfect. The staff are exceptional, a step above the rest. We honestly cannot thank you enough for making everything we wanted possible and being so lovely and accommodating. We have had so many compliments about the food from our guests it’s unbelievable, the little touches like a small plate of vegetarian canapes and dairy free canapes are just an example of those small touches which went such a long way with our guests. Thank you again to everyone that made our day happen, you are all amazing and we cannot recommend you enough.
Rheanna & Luigi

The service we received from the staff was exceptional. It really felt as if they wanted to be there with us, help us every step of the way and make our day perfect. From the initial planning to the day itself, nothing was too silly a request, you really did go above and beyond for which we will be forever grateful. They made our wedding experience everything we’d hoped for and more and we cannot recommend you enough.
Vicki & Luke

We both wanted to say a massive, huge, enormous thank for everything you did for us. The wedding was absolutely perfect, and we have had so many lovely messages from people saying how much they enjoyed it. As much as we would love to take the credit for that, all the thanks are due to you and your teams of awesome people.
We also want to say that the food – all of it – was gorgeous. Several people have told us since that it was the nicest food they have ever had at a wedding (we agree!!). It was so obvious that all the ingredients were lovely quality, and it was so well prepared. It just could not have been better. We also really appreciate the efforts you made to do the street food theme in the evening, and all the other non-standard requests we made.

Hayley & Jack

I wish to send my heartfelt thanks to you and your staff, for the lovely buffet you delivered to Hawthorn Court on the day of my Mother’s funeral. Everyone was highly impressed with the food. We will most certainly recommend you to our friends and relations and will more than likely use you for future events.
Wendy Pullinger

We had the most amazing wedding day with you on Saturday! The staff were extremely helpful and professional in the lead up to the event and on the day itself. Nothing we asked was too much and Sarah & Emma and their team went out of their way to make sure the day was everything we wanted (and more) with no stress or issues! The food was extremely tasty too and each one of our guests felt individually catered for. We want to thank you all hugely on behalf of all our guests – as well as ourselves – as we can truly say it was the best day of our lives so far!

Your staff were amazing. They helped me through the lead up to the day and the day ran so smoothly. Emma was brilliant. The food was incredible and the venue was truly stunning. Thank you so much for making this the best day of my life! I wish I could do it all again

We were lucky enough to be guests here for a wedding. The venue is beautiful, it has a relaxed atmosphere, very clean and tidy, Staff were first class they couldn’t do enough for you. The food was fantastic. 5 star all the way
Kelly Mitchell

The staff and Taste buds catering were amazing and couldn’t have been more helpful. Ella and Emma were ‘on it’ from start to finish. Everything we asked for and wanted they were able to accommodate and it was all the personal touches that meant the most. The food was 10/10- very generous portions 🙂 Cannot recommend Aldwick enough. Beautiful venue, great food, great wine, close to Bristol. Perfect!
Emma Pursall

I was lucky enough to have my wedding at Aldwick in December, the venue is amazing and the staff were brilliant. Emma and Rob made sure our day was perfect and nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious and we received so many compliments about our special day. I would recommend the venue to any couple looking to get married this year.

We just wanted to say a very big thank you for the 2 Chef Hire evenings you did for us at Henfield Barn. My Mum had a wonderful time and loved the food and really wanted to say thank you to you all
Sarah Banks

We would like to say a big thank you to you, Annabel and all staff who made our day very special and run so smoothly, we could not have asked for anything more.

Julie & Pat Mc Carthy

A big thank you from Paul and I. Our wedding day was just perfect and you played more than a leading part in making that happen for us. The sun even came out!! The food was just excellent and everyone commented on how good it was and how very generous the portions were. I have never been to a wedding where so many photos of food have been posted on Facebook! All the team working with you were lovely and so attentive.
Gail & paul

Thanks also for coming to my rescue with scissors for my dress. I think I was in double figures for the number of times I was tangled up in it by the end of the day. I hope our paths cross again in the future and I will certainly come to you for catering any future events I am organising at work also.
A huge thank you!
Gail and Paul

Thank you for making our wedding day so perfect. We are still smiling and buzzing from it. The food was incredible! Thank you to Emma for all your support before & on the day.
Dave and Claire

If there was a 10 we would choose that! Absolutely first class service from start to finish. Emma and Sandy were amazing. We had the most amazing day and evening. We honestly cannot recommend them enough. The food and wine is amazing and the grounds are gorgeous! If you would like a wedding venue & caterer that really puts you first then I would look no further! #firstclassservice
Caroline Webber-Gudge

Wow what a day you helped give us. Taste Buds and everyone at Aldwick really made our day so so special.

Eleanor and Richard

Thank you to the amazing team at Aldwick and Tastebuds (Sandy, Sarah, Rob and Emma). They made our day perfect from start to finish and were around whenever you needed them but always in the background of the day. The experience was flawless and we can’t recommend them highly enough – from beautiful set up (taking into account all the little details) to just taking the stress out of the whole thing and making sure we always had bubbles in our hand! We just had the best day and wish we could re-live it all over again! Thank you Aldwick.
Gem and Chris Giddings xx

Thank you Taste Buds for catering for a family funeral wake at my chosen venue.I felt from the beginning that you really listened to what I needed, helped me to make good decisions about menu choices and you delivered a beautiful selection of food, well presented and just as promised. Many people commented on the quality of the food which was the main thing, but all your people are lovely to deal with too. Thank you so much, thoroughly recommended.
Ali Williamson

Aldwick was everything I ever wanted for our special day! The day was absolutely perfect from start to finish and the planning was made so easy!

We truly had the best day of our life and not only us but our family and friends were in awe of how beautiful the venue was and the exceptional service provided. Absolutely faultless. Thank you for making our day so special and one we will treasure forever.
Rose and Ben Daly

Had my wedding at this beautiful setting on the 22nd July 2016! Don’t know how to thank Ella, Annabelle and Emma enough.

Really cannot thank them all enough!

Stu and I wanted to send a very big thank you to you both and your teams for helping us to hold our wonderful wedding day! We honestly did have the best day ever and the venue looked stunning – so many people complimented us on the venue’s decor, but also on the venue as a whole. Many guests said how professional the service was during canapés and also for dinner. The also mentioned how excellent the food was, and the pies went down very well! We are absolutely delighted we chose Aldwick for our wedding and it was a pleasure working with you. I felt that we got to know you really well and that made our day even more personal.
Mr & Mrs Pringle, December 2015

Fantastic food from locally sourced produce. Taste Buds did the catering for our wedding and we really got the feeling that the team care passionately about what they do, and that really came across in the quality of the food. We had so many comments from our guests about the amazing food that was served. A special mention to Emma who was an absolute pleasure to deal with and was brilliant in helping us plan our big day. All round brilliant.
Thank you so much
Charlotte and Rob Branch

Absolutely stunning food at our wedding at Aldwick Court Farm. We could not have asked for more. All of our guests commented on how amazing the food was throughout the day and how brilliant your staff were. Everything was fantastic and you looked after us so well and were so flexible throughout the planning and event on the day.
I cannot recommend Taste Buds more for your event. They are so lovely and make you feel at ease and will do what ever they can to make your day special and go out of their way. We wanted winter pimms for our wedding but they struggled to get it but they found some and made sure we had the day we wanted. It was just brilliant, Thank you so much
Charlie and Jamie McGuin

I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for all of your hard work at our wedding on July 4th! You did an amazing job and everybody commented on how helpful and friendly you were. You and your team made our day run really smoothly and worked so hard to make our day so perfect.

Gemma & Dan Sparks

Just to say thank you so much for Friday evening. Everyone was very complimentary about your food and the service was fantastic. Thanks also for your help throughout the whole process. I appreciated your expertise as organising an event for 250 clients is not something I do every day! We would have no hesitation recommending you if the chance arises.
Sara O’Brien

We wanted to drop you a line to say Thank You for everything you did to make Friday our perfect day. Nothing was too much trouble for you and your team. We’ve had so many compliments and comments with praise for you, your beautiful venue and the food. Many people telling us it was the best wedding they’ve been too (for some that included their own!)
Jessica Le Couteur & Daniel Gilbert

“We had a totally amazing day and so did our friends and family. Everything was just perfect and totally hassle free. The food was some of the best we have ever eaten. The whole setup looked wonderful and everything ran so smoothly and the only hiccups were those of our guests who made good use of the bar facilities! A perfect venue for our perfect wedding. We know as well as anyone, how stressful these days can be, but you guys truly pulled off a magical day for us!”
Jo & Rob Huckle

“We just wanted to thank you for doing such a fantastic job last Saturday. Everything ran even more smoothly than we had hoped for thanks to your hard work, excellent organisation and dedication. Our guests were made to feel so welcome and you couldn’t do enough to help, which meant that we could just relax and enjoy the day knowing that all our guests were in such capable hands. You also did an amazing job of decorating the room and the food was just delicious! We had such a wonderful day in a beautiful setting and we would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone!”
Sarah & Ben Lisneuf

“We cannot thank everyone enough for the amazing service, support, attention to detail and general friendliness to both ourselves and our guests. The day was everything we hoped for and it really was the best day of our lives. It was the staff, particularly Sandy, Emma and Rob, who made our day so special, stress free and exactly how we wanted it. I was also incredibly impressed with the standard of the food, it was delicious. One guest said the beef roll in the evening was the best she had ever had! Again all of the staff were so helpful and went above and beyond their ‘job’. I could probably go on forever about how wonderful you all are and how truly personal you made our wedding feel right from viewing it on the open day to the end. We certainly made the right choice!”
Lizzie & Will Slater

“Thank you to Sandy and the team at Aldwick Court Farm, we could not have wished for a more perfect venue to hold our big day. We fell in love with the barns at first sight and received much praise from our guests. From start to finish the staff were amazing, special recognition to Emma from the fabulous Taste Buds who provided support and guidance throughout and played a massive part in ensuring our guests were happily fed and watered on the day. We just wish we could do it all again, nobody wanted the party to end. Keep up the good work guys, you do a fantastic job at helping people’s dreams become reality. We would definitely recommend you to others!!”

Alicia & Thomas Owen

“Wow, what can we say about Aldwick Court Farm, from the moment we drove in to the venue we knew it was something special… We could not have asked for a better wedding venue to celebrate our special day with all our friends and family. Emma from TasteBuds was incredible on the day, doing everything and anything we asked. I even changed the table layout the day before and that wasn’t an issue at all. The food was incredible and everyone commented on how delicious it was… I would recommend Aldwick Court Farm to everyone who is looking for a unique beautiful setting and something different”
Charlotte & Jamie McGuin

“Aldwick Court Farm was the next best thing for our Italian themed wedding bar actually having it in Italy! Even the weather was perfect despite being the end of October! All of our guests commented on what a beautiful venue it was. Taste Buds also did a great job with our bespoke Italian menu; it was delicious and had compliments all round. Thanks to all the staff at Aldwick and Taste Buds for your professional help and advice and for making the day run so smoothly. We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding. Thanks!”
Lisa & Archie Utley

“We couldn’t have wished for a more perfect wedding venue than Aldwick Court Farm & Vineyard. The Taste Buds team were top notch and we have had several glowing reports from our guests about the food served. Sandy and the rest of the team really do make everything about planning a wedding a lot simpler and they really know their stuff – I would recommend this venue in a heartbeat!”
Charlotte & Richard Campbell

Lots of people have complimented the food and also your lovely staff – who were so helpful and friendly.

It was pleasure getting to know you and we will most certainly recommend Aldwick Court Farm as a venue to everyone we know looking… Hopefully one day we will return to Aldwick to relive the happy memories!
Anna & Paul Peters

“We had such a stunning wedding at Aldwick Court Farm! During the planning, Sandy, Rob, Emma and their teams were so helpful and gave great advice. They were always on hand to help if necessary. On our wedding day, they made us feel so welcome. Many of our guests, both those from Birstol and beyond commented on what an idyllic and breath-taking setting it was. The Taste Buds team produced a delicious BBQ, which was commented on by many of our guests. The whole team worked tirelessly for seamless transitions throughout the day. They helped to give us a day that took us a week for recover from but a lifetime of happy memories. Thank you!”
Nadine & Adam Evans

“Huge thanks to Rob, Sandy, Emma and the rest of the team for everything they did to make our wedding day the most perfect day we could ask for! It was absolutely brilliant and we cannot thank you enough for all you did.

The venue is an absolutely perfect choice for any couple! A huge thank you to Taste Buds catering, the food was AMAZING (and we really appreciate you catering to all our additional requests)! So many of our guests said that by far, it was the best wedding food that have ever had!! We cannot thank you enough for helping us have the best wedding day that we could have ever dreamed of. It was perfect, we loved every single minute and wouldn’t change a thing.”

“Just a little note to thank you all for everything you did on the lead up to our big day & on our Wedding Day on the 16th August. We truly had the best day of our lives & without all your help & work the day would not have been the same. All our friends & family commented on how beautiful the room & location was. It’s such a stunning venue & we will always recommend you”

“Just wanted to say a massive thank you for yesterday. We had an absolutely amazing time and couldn’t have asked for anything more. Loved all the little touches… all very much appreciated.
A MASSIVE thank you to all the team. We had the most amazing day and it wouldn’t have been possible without you. From the first visit to driving off in our car you were all so welcoming and helpful. We want to do it all again!” “The newlyweds have flown off to Tuscany, so from them both and from their families, our heartfelt thanks to you all. Your thoughtful planning and hard work helped to make their wedding day wonderful. Aldwick sparkled in the perfect July sunshine, the wedding breakfast was excellent and the whole day truly memorable.
Kate & Jon Taylor

We would like to thank you all for all the hard work and effort that went in to Saturday. We had the most perfect day, better than we ever thought. You all made everything so easy and stress free. All our guests could not get over how beautiful Aldwick is, also we have had so many compliments about the food and how wonderful it was (we had a lot of fussy eaters too). I will send you a card when we come back from holidays but I just couldn’t wait to say a big thank you!
Holly & Simon

We just wanted to say a massive thank you to yourself and all at Taste Buds for making our wedding so fantastic. The food was delicious and the pies went down so well that our friends are still talking about them! Thank you for being so brilliant and accommodating all our last minute changes and making the venue so beautiful for us. We had the best day ever and you are a very big part of that. We wish you all the best for the future and we are sure you will go from strength to strength.
Helen & Nick

This is truly a tick all boxes and exceeded expectations review! The place is stunning and spacious, we were so lucky with the weather and it actually felt like we were in France on a vineyard which was just wonderful. Sandy, Rob and the team were helpful from the beginning and made our whole day seamless especially when Sandy had pin an Usher’s ripped trousers back together…. Thank you for that!! No stress, immaculately presented and took care of everything from set up to clear down. Emma and the Tastebuds team were exceptional and the food just perfect. Everything felt so personal to Dave and I; it was all just how we wanted it. Informal, fun room to run around safely for kids and a blooming good party. We had our dream wedding and everyone had a blast. We can’t than you enough. P.s the mystery honeymoon was Mauritius 🙂
Steph & Dave

Lloyd and I had such a wonderful day and we cannot thank the team at Aldwick and Taste buds enough for all of their help and support with the run up and on the day. From our point of view everything seemed to run so smoothly, the catering staff were professional and attentive, our glasses were never empty!!We could not have asked for a more perfect day, despite the rain!!! We and everyone else loved every minute!
Ellie & Lloyd

We wish to thank you and your team for helping to make the Wedding last Saturday into a perfect day. All the guests said how much they enjoyed the fabulous food. We certainly did. I do think that the buffet style approach worked for us and our needs and there was plenty for all. It is a credit to you and your team. The evening supplementary food also went down well. Many said after the Wedding breakfast that they could not eat any more but what was laid on was just too tempting. It was to a very good quality and to a professional standard. So just an appreciation to you and I hope it goes a little way to recommending to others who wish to use your services in the future.
Simon and Carol Morris

Before we disappear off on honeymoon we just wanted to say a massive thank you for yesterday. We had an absolutely amazing time and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Loved all the little touches including the candle in the jelly and singing happy birthday!
Jon & Kate

I attended my nephews wedding yesterday and felt I had to contact you to say what a wonderful venue Sam & Kelly chose. The food was fantastic and all of your staff were first class. Everything seemed to go so well and it was a really good event. Well done everybody
Mr Dix

To all you nice people. I am Leigh’s nan and on Friday spent the day at Aldwick Court Farm & Vineyard. Thank you to everyone who helped make the day so memorable. At my age, you can always find something that annoys you (I didn’t!). It was a magical day full of happy, hardworking people who were always willing to please. Good food, good service and very professional. I give it a 10/10.
Kerri & Leigh

“Thank you all so much for such a wonderful day. The organisation was seamless and really allowed us to relax and just enjoy celebrating with our family and friends. All the staff really looked after us and were contentious, nothing was too much trouble. It was perfect! Everyone commented on the fantastic venue and the wonderful food. We couldn’t fault any of it!”

“Thank you so much for playing such a special part in our wedding day. Right from the very first phone call conversation with Laura, I felt Taste Buds Catering was going to provide a very personal and friendly service. The food itself was absolutely fantastic. We were keen to use local, fresh ingredients and Marco even created a delicious dessert based on our favourite flavours. You really helped to ease the stress of organisation by helping us plan the day, by liaising with our venue directly and being so flexible with our meetings. On our big day the Taste Buds team were extremely professional. So many of our guests have commented both on the friendliness of your staff and the quality of the canapes and the BBQ food (some were especially pleased that there was enough for seconds!) Overall we’d like to thank you both Laura and Marco for providing such an outstanding service, which we would highly recommend if anyone’s looking for a catering company who manage to combine the ‘personal touch’ with excellent value, a rare find in the world of wedding planning!”
Niki & Dave

“Taste Buds provided an excellent service for our big day. We felt that you listened to our requests and tweaked the menu accordingly so we could have the wedding breakfast we wanted within our budget. You provided us with several options to choose from which was great. Nothing was too much trouble and on the day, we hardly noticed you guys were there – which is the perfect compliment! Oh, and the food was absolutely delicious! Several guests came up to me and commented on it. I knew I could relax because everything was in hand and you helped to make our wedding day very special. Huge thanks.”
Lucie & Greg

“I have been meaning to contact you ever since our event in July to thank you for doing such an excellent job for us. Everyone enjoyed the canapes enormously. You were courteous and prompt with all the timings and we were very happy with the service you provided. Many thanks!”
Rachael, Bath

“Many thanks for a great buffet on Saturday night, once again your food and customer care has been superb. We look forward to the next occasion when we will be in touch again. We had to give your name and number to several friends who were very impressed.”

“Just a quick message to thank you again for last night. The food was great – lots of people have commented on how good it was. This may become an annual event for us, and I will certainly want to book you again and will recommend you if I know of anyone who needs mobile catering.”

“Thanks for all your help in making our day so special. We have had excellent feedback on the food quality, taste, presentation and service. It was excellent so many thanks again.”
Paul & Nessa

“Just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful food and service over the weekend. We had a lovely dinner made all the more special by your professionalism.”

“A big Thank You for the great service you provided at our Directors Luncheon. The whole event went extremely well and the Directors were all very impressed with the quality of food and standard of service you provided. Thanks for providing such great service and support – it really does help people like me, too, knowing that I can totally trust someone to do an excellent job!”

“We chose Taste Buds as caterers for our wedding in October 2010 and what an excellent choice that was – they were absolutely fantastic. The food was excellent, and it was not an easy menu I can tell you, Marco cooked everything to perfection and we had some incredibly happy guests. Marco spent a long time with us working out exactly what we wanted for our wedding weekend and it really did surpass all our expectations. Everyone raved about the food all weekend. They were so easy to work with and Laura was amazing, she constantly went out of her way to help and find solutions to our problems even if it made their job a lot harder. I cannot recommend Taste Buds highly enough and we were so glad to have chosen them for our special day. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
Pip & Steve

“Many thanks for doing the catering for our wedding, the service was truly first class and the food was delicious (especially the scones and sausages!). We will recommend you to friends and feel free to use us as a reference any time. Thank you once again!”
Tim & Liz

“Thank you for all your hard work catering and serving for us at our wedding on the 18th September. You all did a marvellous job, were friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious; all our family and friends were very impressed. From our first enquiries with Taste Buds, you have been informative, helpful and pleasant and helped make our wedding day perfect.”
Eleanor & James

“The reason we picked Taste Buds was that you could provide a simple menu using good quality ingredients, and you delivered perfectly. Other caterers seemed more keen to promote their own menus at the expense of our wishes, but Taste Buds were able to accommodate our ideas whilst still providing a wealth of much-needed advice and expertise. From the guests, we have heard nothing but positive things about the food and the service.

The other great differentiating factor was the professionalism and enthusiasm that you displayed throughout – being willing to meet us regularly, at home or the venue – being in regular contact by email. Everything ran very smoothly from our point of view and dealing with you was a pleasure. Importantly this meant that we could trust you completely with the running of the catering on the day, and we could enjoy ourselves knowing that it was in safe hands.

On the day, all of the staff provided were lovely, and struck the perfect balance between being available when needed, but not too “in your face”, and were friendly and understood the tone of the whole event. Everything ran very smoothly – and you were wonderfully prepared such that you were not unduly affected by the limited facilities of the venue. Certainly if there were any problems, we didn’t hear about it! Again testament to your conscientiousness and hard work.”
James & Tilly

“Taste Buds exceeded all our hopes for our wedding; they were friendly, flexible and accommodating to the needs and requirements of our wedding day, helping us realise what was possible and utilising their past experience to tailor the day for the better. The food and service on the day was superb, allowing us to enjoy a carefree day in which we were able to sit back and enjoy the atmosphere. I would strongly recommend Taste Buds to anyone who wants someone they can trust and feel confident in. Thank you again.”

“We want to say a massive thank you for providing the catering at our wedding on the 21st. The food was delicious and we had so many compliments about it. But on top of that, the way in which you and your staff handled everything (including the inclement weather and unpredicted relocation of the hogs) with such good humour and outward calm was absolutely fabulous. I would not hesitate to recommend you to others.”
Richard & Jane

“We were delighted with the canapés you provided at such short notice for my daughters wedding. There were many comments about the both the quality of appearance and taste. Many thanks again.”

“Just to say a big thank you for the beautiful buffet you delivered to us on Sunday. The food was absolutely lovely and many people asked us who had done the catering – of course we enlightened them. The food arrived on time and the presentation was brilliant. Taste Buds took away the stress from the day so we could enjoy it as much as everyone else. I will be recommending you to friends and family in the future and who knows we may find the occasion to use you again in the future. Once again, many thanks.”

“We just wanted to thank you and your team for the fantastic catering you provided for our wedding. Marco cooked everything to perfection and we have had so many positive comments from our guests about the food and service provided by Taste Buds. We would certainly recommend you to anyone looking for caterers for a special occasion. Thank you again.”
