Sonia and Phil - Wedding
West Hampstead - 80 guests

Hi Sandra
What can we say other than the biggest of THANK YOUS! You and your team were amazing on our wedding day (and before the day for that matter). The crockery looked incredible, the food was delicious all day and you all worked so hard to make our day run smoothly. Thank you so so much! We loved the day and you were a big part of that. I can honestly say Phil and I had a wonderful day, better than we imagined! And your catering was a pretty significant part of that – I can assure you your efforts were very much appreciated. We, and I suspect many of our guests, will be recommending you – we were so happy with the service you provided, before the day and during – once again, thank you so much. P.S. I saw a lady who I've worked with a few times over the last 6 months, she had the frying squad and your ice creams at her wedding - Sarah who got married on 30th July. I saw her today and we were both raving about you - she said the fish, chips and everything else were amazing, I felt the same about our afternoon tea, canapés and buffet.

We would like to say a humongous thank you for everything you did for our wedding. It was truly amazing and we had the best day ever!!!! The food was great and everyone said how much they enjoyed it.

40th birthday party - Jackie - Guildford - 57 guests

Hi Sandra
Thank you again for everything you did on Sunday, I had so many comments from friends saying how wonderful the food and the service were. I can't believe how much food there was and everyone went home with a little goodie bag too. Your girls were absolutely charming too and so helpful. It seems such a shame it is all over now, I will just have to think of another occasion to plan.

Kind regards Jackie

Wedding – Ruth and Neil – Barn in Farnham – 130 guests

Hi Sandra
I wish I could be back in Wedding world and do it all again! I was very happy with how the barn looked. I keep looking at all the photos! Your crockery made it all look beautiful. I wish I had asked for all the food to be on the tables when we all arrived as it’s such a shame all the photographs our photographer took of the barn all set up were before the plates were filled with all the yumminess! It all was lovely (although if I am honest, I ate about 2 sandwiches – I was so high on adrenalin I think it just went in a blur and I didn’t eat anything all day really! Bit sad I didn’t get to taste it all ?) Thank you again,

Hi Sandra and team!
Just want to say an enormous heartfelt thank you for all your hard work yesterday. You were AMAZING!! So many people commented on the incredible food, fantastic service and wonderful staff. You really went above and beyond and you made our wedding day unforgettable. We really can't thank you enough for everything you did for us, and I hope it all went according to plan for you.

So many thanks! Nikki & Jim xxx

Wedding – Louise and Alan – Borough Market – 50 guests

Sandra and Eamonn and the team at Vintage Style Teas were instrumental in making our wedding day work. Sandra was really responsive and helpful in managing the fact that we had organised everything last minute, and at a tricky venue which had no kitchen facilities. She was incredibly flexible in responding to our specific needs, which was full tea service, followed by an evening event, where we provided the food, but Sandra’s team provided the service, and also crockery, glassware, tablecloths etc where required. The logistics would not have been manageable without them. All the feedback from our guests and my perfectionist mother about their work was overwhelmingly positive including how warm and friendly their service was, and the quantity and quality of the food. Sandra’s and her team’s generosity, flexibility and passion helped to make a great event. I don t think Sandra sacrificed her passion for afternoon tea service at the altar of professionalism, but she was completely professional at all times too. Finally, and importantly, all of this was excellent value for money, compared to the 3-4 other quotes I obtained. Only pity is we didn’t get to try the Fish and Chips service, but we’d already ordered our food for the evening!

All the best Louise and Alan

I just wanted to write to say a very big thank you to you both and your lovely team of ladies. Holly and James had the perfect day which is still the talk of the village. You all worked so hard to ensure everyone was fed and watered and those efforts were much appreciated by us all. Thank you,

Very best wishes, Virginia Taylor

Wedding Alice and James – Maidstone, Kent - 100 guests

"We were lucky enough to have 'Vintage Style Teas' cater for our wedding this summer (2014) and it was one of the best decisions we made! From the moment I got in touch with them, Sandra and the whole team were so friendly and professional. Nothing was too much bother (even when dealing with the pickiest of brides like myself!). They went completely above and beyond what was expected. From visiting us before the wedding for a chat and a taster, to discussing any worries I had right up until the day itself.

'Vintage Style Teas' offer a hugely comprehensive package and in all my searching I haven't come across another company that offers so much for such a reasonable price. If you love perfectly English tasty afternoon tea, beautiful vintage crockery, crisp tablecloths, fun vintage games, lots of stunning little extras and the friendliest most professional staff you can get - then 'Vintage Style Teas' is for you! My guests are still raving about them weeks after the wedding! Thank you for making our day perfect."

Wedding Bridie and Chris - Ashford Kent - 60 guests

Hi Sandra and Eamonn,

Thank you so much for helping make the best day of our lives perfect. We couldn't have asked for more with the service you provided. Everyone said how brilliant the food was and I even had a few people say it was the best fish and chips they have ever had! Thanks to you and everything you provided, we believe you played a vital part in creating peoples opinion of "it was the best wedding I've ever been too". The kids and the adults absolutely loved all the games, any wedding is at risk of being slow moving and boring, but the games kept everyone entertained.

I know all the parents at the wedding are extremely grateful for the games, especially my sister (an otherwise stressed out mother of two) she was able to relax and enjoy herself knowing her little girl was having a blast with all the other children, playing in the garden.

We really didn't have to worry about a thing on our wedding, you ran such a smooth operation, I really cannot comment enough on how brilliant our afternoon tea was! Our guests were so impressed, Chris's grandma (who enjoys an afternoon tea at Fenwicks on the regular) said it was sublime, truly out of this world. It really was our dream wedding, everything I could have possibly wanted was present.

Everything looked so beautiful. We waited 8 years for our big day and we are so happy we chose you two as our caterers, everything was perfect. Thank you. My only negative...is that we didn't try one of those fruit tarts!! That will truly haunt us forever! Thank you so much. We are we hoping we can use your service again, believe me, I am looking for any excuse to have a party!

Kindest regards Mrs Wightman :)

Wedding - 100 plus guests

Vintage Style Teas not only provided a delicious afternoon tea service for over 100 people for our wedding breakfast, they also provided an experience that was just marvelous and enjoyed by everyone. We have had so many compliments about the food since the wedding and the large collection of china that was used is stunning. The props completed the whole feel of the day, which was so much fun! The radio & typewriter really was a delight! Sandra & Eamonn were professional throughout and were keen to make our day perfect, which extended beyond just a tea service. Nothing was too much trouble for them and their advice was always on hand. I would not hesitate to recommend Vintage Style Teas, from the moment we booked with them we could see our ideas for our wedding day come to a reality and because of Vintage Style Teas the day turned out better than we imagined, THANK YOU! All the very best,

Mr & Mrs Price

Mel and Gareth - Wedding
Hampstead - 105 guests

Hi Sandra
We’re back from our honeymoon and I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you so much. The day was perfect and the decorations and food were amazing. Everyone commented on how kind and help and attentive you all were and loved the sandwiches and cakes. Specially the people with allergies. My friend Neil is gluten-free and hadn’t eaten fish & chips in over 10 years, he was over the moon!! I’m absolutely gutted that I didn’t eat more!

Afternoon Tea / Fish and Chips
Hi Sandra
I absolutely love afternoon tea and all things vintage. My other half loves fish and chips... When we stumbled across Vintage Style Teas and the Frying Squad, and found out that they were free on day of our wedding, we knew we'd hit the jackpot! Sandra and Eamonn are two of the loveliest people you'll ever meet, and such a pleasure to deal with, going over and above to ensure our big day went to plan. Our wedding had a 50s theme, so the gorgeous crockery and old vintage radio complimented it perfectly. In comparison to some of the other suppliers we had looked at, their prices were incredibly reasonable, and there were so many little touches - such as the vintage suitcase and bunting - which were offered to us at no additional cost. Prior to our wedding, Sandra and Eamonn spent time with us both in person and over the phone to address any queries that we had. Their staff were fantastic - so attentive (you won't be hungry!) and they happily catered to all dietary needs. I can't recommend the delicious battered halloumi enough :) Thanks for making our special day one to remember, both for us and for our guests.

Afternoon Tea and Fish and Chips
Dear Sandra and Eamonn
I've deliberately waited till the fog cleared from my brain, so I could do justice to your WONDERFUL and utterly crucial part in making our party such a success. We had an absolutely brilliant time and this was down to you. Your care for every detail, your ability and willingness to respond to every request, your attentiveness to each and every one of our guests, whether 95 or 2 years old, and your sunny dispositions just made it a perfect day. Please thank all your lovely ladies too. I lost count of the people who came to tell us how special you all made them feel and these sorts of comments have continued in all the thank you cards that we have been sent. Even the band felt brilliantly looked after. The food was delicious, both the tea and the fish and chips etc. It was brilliant to see how much our guests enjoyed it all. You were right about them being hungry after dancing - I thought they'd still be full from tea! We can't remember the last time/place we used special tongs for sandwiches! It added to the fun watching people work out what implements to use for different parts of the tea. You also made the tables and the whole room look so celebratory and beautiful. The music on the vintage radio was perfect too. If only we had the energy and money to do it all over again - soon! With our very grateful thanks

Best wishes Katharine and Philip

Dear Sandra
I can't recommend you enough! I was so impressed with your service and how friendly and warm you and your team were! I'm not surprised you are always so busy! We just wanted to say how amazing Sandra and her team were. From start to end nothing was too much trouble. Sandra and her team not only catered our wedding but helped us in creating our theme, including gorgeous bunting, a type writer for guests to leave messages and an array of garden games. Sandra and her team also helped us by serving Pimms to our guests and moving the chairs from the ceremony to the barn for our tea.

The food was gorgeous and so nicely presented. Our guests loved the bone china as well as the yummy sandwiches and cakes. Sandra and her team are so warm and friendly and I could not recommend them enough. Thank you so much for making our day so special!

I just wanted to say a BIG thank you for the fantastic tea party you laid on for me yesterday. Everyone loved the food and thought that your whole service was fabulous – from the china to the food to the drink. Thank you especially for the food for special diets which I understand was absolutely delicious. For me it was wonderful having laid tables etc just forgetting about the mechanics and being able to enjoy myself – which I certainly did. You both worked so incredibly hard and it was much appreciated. I am really pleased that I chose you to provide my tea party. I will not forget your excellent service.

With best wishes Joan M

We just wanted to say a massive thank you once again for helping make our wedding day so utterly amazing. We were so impressed by your flexible attitude, positivity and commitment to making it the best possible event from the first time we were in touch and for that we'll always be grateful. We've also received endless compliments on the tea / fish & chips combo and I know our guests were especially impressed by how fresh the fish was! Clearly we've let people keep on believing that we'd sourced all the games, vintage typewriter, etc, ourselves, however... ;-)

Tea Party – 70 guests

Hi Sandra
I hired Vintage Style Teas as a function to celebrate my best friend getting married, kind of a ladies hen party. It was without doubt a truly memorable evening for all the right reasons. Sandra stayed in contact with me throughout the week ahead of the function so as to ensure we familiar and happy with the menu, timings, and general information that we needed. She arrived early to prepare the food, was dressed well, and presented the tea party just beautifully! She then served the tea and food to us, and the word attentive doesn't do it justice! Sandra was keenly aware of the needs of the guests without being overbearing in the slightest. The food was magnificent, the service was exceptional, and I cannot recommend Sandra and Vintage Style Teas highly enough!!!! Without doubt one of the fondest memories I have, and that is in no small way down to this service and Sandra herself!!
