Thank you all for helping to make our wedding day perfect!!” Sam and Jason, Wedding at Blackwater and Hawley Memorial Hall, August 2017
“Just to thank you for the absolutely excellent service we received from all the staff at the wedding of our daughter Gabrielle to Ben in Rotherwick on 24th June. We had such good reports from everybody about how good the food was. The staff were so professional , polite and unobtrusive and did an excellent job from serving the canapes at the beginning, to clearing away at the end. We couldn’t have been more impressed. I hope all involved will get the praise they deserve.” Wedding at Rotherwick Village Hall, June 2017
“We’d both like to extend massive thanks to you and the team that worked our wedding on Sunday. The food was exactly what we wanted and went down really well with all the guests. The sausages (both pork and vegetarian) were especially popular. The barbeque food was really tasty, and had great feedback. We’d also like to thank the staff, who were friendly and efficient on the day. Overall, both we and the guests were delighted with the food and service of Moodies, and we’d definitely recommend you in the future.” Simon and Michelle, Wedding at Winchester Guildhall, May 2017
“Many thanks to you, Hannah, Nikki and the team for putting on an excellent wedding reception for Suzanne and Jason.

We had a fantastic wedding day and the food, drinks and all round service and quality provided by your staff was excellent.” Dave and Sandra, Marquee and Catering, Reading, May 2017
“I wanted to thank you and all your team for the excellent organisation of our daughter’s recent wedding reception. Several of our guests have said much they enjoyed the food and how well it was all served. You all made sure that things ran very smoothly and your flexbility was much appreciated. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone wanting catering for their special event. We ourselves enjoyed it very much, confident that you had it all under control!” Stuart, Wedding Catering and Furniture Hire, Wanborough Great Barn, May 2017 (See some photos from this wedding here)
“Thank you so so much for your help organising the wedding on Saturday. The team were absolutely fantastic, a real credit to the company, please do pass on my thanks to them and Claire in particular.

The whole day seemed to run incredibly smoothly and went exactly how I hoped it would go, thank you.” Victoria and Michael, Wedding Marquee and Catering, Colemore, May 2017
“We cannot begin to fully express how utterly delighted we were with every aspect of Moodies participation in our Wedding. From the very first contact with you, Nikki, through to Rich seamlessly managing our day, we never doubted or had any cause for concern. Your ability to listen, digest and translate all our hopes into a magical experience should be commended – thank you! As expected, the food on the day was delicious and it was evidently clear from all our guests that they loved the flavours, presentation and portion sizes! Our compliments to the chef and kitchen team for an amazingly timed, hot, tasty Reception meal and canapés that were simply perfect. Rich, you and your lovely staff really were quite exceptional. Such a polite and genuinely friendly bunch of hard working people that really cared about us and our guests and were always breezing through with poise, charm and fresh bubbly! Late into the evening you were all alert and keeping everything spotless, subtly in the background. A very special group of people, managed to perfection and the day was an almighty success because of you.
When we began our search for caterers, it was quite daunting. Prices were over elaborately explained and there was always the fear of extras here, there and everywhere, adding up to a surprise figure come the actual Wedding day. Moodies was clear, transparent and we are so lucky to have found you. Without hesitation we would recommend you and we will certainly use you again in the future.” Helena and Phil, wedding at Chawton House, October 2016.
“I just wanted to thank Moodies for our catering on our wedding day- the food was amazing! Not only did Moodies cook great food but they helped us plan our whole day from timings, to helping set up and packing away everything at the end of the night. All the staff were so friendly and polite. We were able to choose our own menu and any food we wanted- we ended up with 4 choices for starter and main and 3 for pudding. When our guests got our invitation they were all very excited for the food.Moodies responded to emails so quickly with all the information I needed (I sent a lot of emails!!) Rich and Nikki were great, Rich called me they day before to run through everything and make sure I was happy and Nikki responded to all our questions and helped me with anything I needed! Thank you to all the staff at Moodies for a great wedding da y- I’m sure if we didn’t have your help it wouldn’t have run as smoothly as it did!” Sarah, Wedding Catering at the Walled Garden Cowdray, October 2016

Will have no hesitation in recommending you to neighbours, family and friends. Wishing you and your company every success in the future.” John and Emma, Cranleigh, August 2016
“Dear Nikki – I am writing a brief note to thank you all for making my party go so well, despite somewhat difficult circumstances due to the rain. I did wonder if people would leave after a couple of hours but they stayed for the duration with the last going at about 1.30am! This was in no small part due to the excellent food your two chefs professionally and cheerfully cooked up (and I don’t know how they did it in that space and under those conditions) and in particular to the cheerful, friendly, attentive and professional way Claire and her team worked, despite frequently getting drenched. I had many very positive comments from my friends and family about the set-up, the food and the staff, and requests for contact information for Moodies for weddings etc. You might find yourselves being dragged back to Southampton sometime! Finally, thank you, personally, for the efficient, friendly and responsive way in which you organised things and captured exactly what we wanted so clearly and accurately. ” James and Jo, party, Southampton, July 2016
“Just wanted to thank you for all your hard work before and on my wedding day. You put me completely at ease and nothing was too much of a problem….Thanks so much.

“Hi Nikki, Rich – I just wanted to send a quick note before dashing off on honeymoon to say thank you for your (huge) part in making our wedding day so special. I honestly couldn’t speak highly enough of the service that we have received from Moodies. Nikki, in the run up to the wedding your patience, sound advice and eye for detail were just what we needed. And Rich, over the wedding weekend itself, you delivered a seamless event for us. You and the team worked your socks off and friends and family were all complimenting the quality of the marquee and service. I have no doubt that you are slaving away once again today in getting the marquee down again! This is just a quick one for now, but we would be more than happy to give a glowing testimonial for your website on our return in a few weeks. In the meantime, THANK YOU!!!” Beth and Dan, Marquee and Wedding Catering in Camberley, June 2016
“Dear Moodies, this is a MASSIVE thank you for making our wedding day such a success. Nikki and Gemma are an absolute credit to your company.

Everyone has commented on how lovely all the food was (so many canapes!). I keep chuckling when I remember the kind lady who followed us around the garden with our own platter of canapés whilst we had our photos taken- that was really special. Also for Gemma making sure I had my alcohol free wine! Guests were also very impressed with the price of the cash bar. The tables looked lovely and we really liked what you did with the favour boxes.

We will definitely be recommending Moodies!” Abigail and Luke, Wedding at the Walled Garden Cowdray, Sussex, May 2016

The room was very cramped with all of our guests so I felt for them having to manoeuvre through people but they never made it seem like a hassle. They also very kindly looked out for Richard and I in between photos etc to make sure we had drinks, canapes etc which was very kind. I honestly couldn’t recommend you enough! Thanks to Rachel, I hope it wasn’t too stressful for her!” Deborah and Richard, wedding at the Walled Garden in Cowdray, August 2015

And finally all your staff who were friendly and charming and are a real credit to you. I can’t name them all but they were all delightful.
We thought this year in particular the service of drinks, canapés and food was faultless, we were ready each morning for the guests arrival and everyone was offered a drink instantly as they arrived.

Your whole team deserve huge thanks from all of us, they worked so hard and nothing was too much trouble.
