Rob and Becci's Sussex Wedding

Our wedding day, even though we have to say it, was amazing, everybody since have said they loved it and the comments we got about how great the food was and the service they received from our caterers made us feel that we had absolutely made the right choice.

It is a difficult decision who to get to cater for a large group of people, all with different tastes and expectancies, especially on one of the most important days of your life, now I know you'll never please everybody, but I think we actually managed it, and it was all down to Super Event. They certainly lived up to their name in all aspects of the service we received from them, from beginning to end. With their no nonsense, no unnecessary frills approach they simply offer excellent service, excellent food, all at a very reasonable price.

Throughout the process Super Event have been easy to contact and nothing has appeared to have been too much effort. Tony and Chrystelle at the head office responded to each and every one of our many emails and phone calls and always provided the answers we needed.

The tasting sessions Super Events offer beforehand (free to the Bride and Groom with the option of paying for others to join) are fantastic and it is nice to be able to have the chance to taste the wide range the food and drink Super Event offer, also allowing options to mix and match to make the meal you want for your day. (We chose, Smoked Duck and Asparagus to start, for mains the Blade of Beef Bergerac, with Dauphinoise potatoes (Amazing, beef just melted in the mouth) and a Triple Delight Dessert (why have just one)

The day was planned by us and run without any problems by Super Events, with service over and above what we expected. Our venue (Birling Manor) is a blank canvas, their special selling point of enabling people to hire the venue for 4 days, enabled us to make it our own. You do have to hire the furniture (this is charged as extra as will only be needed for certain venues and Marquees) and a good catering company who can bring all their own appliances to create the meal, again Super Events do it all. The furniture arrived on the Thursday which enabled us to set the venue out how we wanted and Super Event staff came on the Friday to lay out the tables and allow us again to add our own finishing touches, it was all ready for us on the Friday to simply arrive on the Saturday and enjoy our day without worry. The only thing I have to say is maybe think about asking where Super Event park their refrigeration van, they seem to get free advertising in a lot of our photos, would have been nice if it had not in such a prominent position, just a little bit of hindsight.

Now I know cost is something (if not the main thing) people will want to know about, Super Events are by no way expensive, in fact for the quality and service we received we thought they were exceptional value for money, worth every penny, (with a range of options to suit every budget). Other caterers seemed only slightly cheaper, but always ask what are the hidden extras, staffing, linen, crockery and cutlery, glassware, most other caterers we approached seemed to add this on top of the food cost thus overall making them far more expensive, Super Events included everything and more, as Tony said, 'how can you serve food with nothing to eat off or with.

As our budget was quite tight we chose to provide our own food and drink for the evening festivities (with thanks to some locally sourced produce from Beachy Head Brewery and Frith and Little Deli, East Dean) Super Event staff stayed on to serve this, also running and providing the glassware for our free evening bar (to my huge gratitude again at no extra cost, I did have to check this. Twice just to believe it).

Our special thanks go out to all the staff who made our day run so smoothly, especially Simon and Dee, nothing was too much trouble and our every whim and want was catered for (excuses the pun). We can't rave enough about the service and quality of food, food is freshly prepared there and then and served hot, the drink was flowing and the overall service excellent, one of the comments from our guest was, ' it was like being at a 5* restaurant, but much more fun and relaxed

Our thanks once again to all involved, we had a truly magical and wonderful time, we didn't have to worry about a thing, except for enjoying every minute of our day.
