Testimonials & Reviews

Wedding Award Vote

“From the moment we first booked our venue the team at Poppy were incredibly helpful, friendly, professional and supportive. The Merchant Taylors Hall was amazing, and the food for our wedding breakfast couldn't have been better - many of our guests commented that it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. The staff serving at our wedding were attentive and helpful. We felt that Poppy went out of their way to help make our wedding day special, they liaised with our florist, evening entertainment,photographer and cake maker as well as with us, and Val even persuaded her son and his friend to dress up as storm troopers to fit in with the fact that our wedding day was Star Wars Day (May the 4th be with you!). We had a wonderful wedding reception and can't thank Poppy Caterers enough for the amazing service they provided, we would definitely say they deserve to win this award!”
