“To Val Simon and everyone THANK YOU We had such a perfect day, and we really enjoyed the food. Everyone commented on the choices and they were particularly pleased wih the Hog Roast. But the canapes and the mini deseerts were gorgeous and such a fun idea we'd like to do it all over again. Thanks love Kath & Danny”
