We have good news!

We're already incredibly lucky to do a job we love, with an amazing team, and we regularly receive fantastic cards and emails from our clients and couples thanking us, but this week we've had another one of those 'icing on the cake' moments. 42092127_2045609602145595_7993191990512582656_n Monday evening Hayley and Olivia attended The Wedding Guide UK's North of England Wedding Awards #NOEWA on behalf of the team. Despite those fantastic cards and emails from clients, we never really expect to win (I know, right?), and competition is always so tough for these events. Nevertheless, the votes received from our couples meant that when the winner was announced, it was Hayley and Olivia heading on up to the stage to collect the award for Outstanding Customer Service 2018 and we're now multi award winning caterers. noewa-winner-2018 We're unbelievably proud of our team (we couldn't do it without them!) and this award really has been earned by everybody at F4D. Thank you so much to our couples who voted (who we also couldn't do it without!) - we've been reading the comments you made and are so grateful that you took the time on our behalf. Here's just a tiny selection of the comments.. 'From start to finish they were impeccable. They were flexible, attentive and incredibly friendly. We had some great meetings in the lead up and I never once worried about the catering side. On the day the team were just wonderful, so helpful and were a great hit with our guests. The food was divine and still being commented on now. I would happily have them cook for me everyday!' 'They were superb from start to finish with sage advice and an aura of calmness which was much needed at a time of some stress. Their staff were extremely professional and food excellent. It was very important to us that we showcased the best of Yorkshire to our guests from all over the UK (and further afield) and as farmers and food producers ourselves, we were not disappointed. Simply can't recommend highly enough' 'Brilliant from start to finish, kind, caring and genuinely excited for us and our big day. Food was amazing, service incredible and staff were lovely to deal with at all times. Brilliant company who really deserve to be highlighted' 'The food was absolutely wonderful and we received so many comments from the guests about how lovely it was. They had lots of different options but what we went for in the end was something that is a little bit different - tapas. It was enjoyed by all. F4D were also really easy to contact and got back to me so quickly on every occasion' 'From the very first phone enquiry to F4D to the very last minute of the wedding day, the team at F4D excelled far beyond any expectation we had for our wedding caterers. As we were planning our wedding from a distance, Olivia and co went out of their way to work around our movements when we came back to Yorkshire for pre-wedding planning. They answered every email super promptly and made us feel so at ease that no question was too small or silly.  They basically asked us what would be our ideal menu and when we thought we'd come up with one idea too far, they constantly were creating a menu that was about us and our guests... and the end result it all tasted fabulous. On the day, Olivia was there to oversee everything and went far beyond just checking on the catering and making sure everything came together as planned. Even in the days leading up to the wedding when we had fully gone through the RSVP's and hadn't realised how many allergies and dietary requirements we were catering to for our guests, F4D came up with a completely alternative menu so that those guests felt like they had been equally catered to and not forgotten and that was important to me - and further warranted when I had those comments relayed to me by our guests. F4D really made the day go without a hitch and I will not hesitate to recommend them or use them again for any future event' 'They always went the extra mile including giving my new husband and I a quiet 5 minutes on our own with a glass of champagne. The food was amazing and we had so many compliments about the catering including food for not just our vegetarian friends but also providing a vegan meal. Katrina took a weight off my Mum just by sorting everything out, even down to also having amazing bar staff after the meal who managed the bar brilliantly and oversaw the cheese course. They were brilliant and would use them again if we get the chance'  We could go on but we think you get the point! We really do have the most amazing couples, so thank you again to all those who took the time to vote. Thank you also to The Wedding Guide UK for organising the awards and congratulations to all the other winners.

We'll see you on the other side! noewa

Happy Yorkshire Day!

Yorkshire folk are always proud of their roots, but August 1st is the one day in the year they really pull out the stops to celebrate being from the largest, and arguably one of the most gorgeous, counties in England. Today we're providing Yorkshire Pudding wraps to lots of our lovely corporate clients and thought we would share some with the fabulous JoJo and Adam at Capital FM who keep us entertained in the office every weekday morning. capital-yp-wraps As JoJo said, these really are the breakfast of champions! Capital Towers - we hope you all enjoyed them! Before we take off our flat caps, head for a cup of Yorkshire Tea, and settle down for a marathon run of Emmerdale we thought we'd share some images from the lovely Holly's hen party on Saturday which we provided beautiful hampers full of Yorkshire goodness, including York ham, Wensleydale cheese, Barncliffe Brie, Yorkshire Blue and masses of locally sourced products along with tasty quiche made using eggs from our own chickens (so that makes them Yorkshire, right?!) heather-picnic-3 heather-picnic-2 heather-picnic-4   Just how gorgeous does this all look (even if we say so ourselves!)? If you'd like hampers bursting with tasty treats from our amazing chefs then please do get in touch.. info@f4devents.co.uk or 01937 834696. Huge thanks to Holly for these images and allowing us to share them. Right, where's that cup of tea..?

Real Wedding – Charlotte & Sam – Jervaulx Abbey

charlotte-mullard-wedding-10 Charlotte & Sam held their wedding reception in the stunning grounds of Jervaulx Abbey on a sunshine filled Bank Holiday weekend, and wow, did the sun shine! They first approached us in July 2017 and we started chatting about their day and the menu. Both Charlotte & Sam wanted a relaxed day for friends and family to celebrate with them and to have food that was tasty and hearty but suitable for a potentially very warm day. Here's the menu guests were seated to after a canape and drinks reception.. charlotte-mullard-wedding-8 It really was a delicious meal, and such a lovely personal touch for Charlotte to include her homemade chutney (which we hear was very popular!). As the party got underway for the evening, guests were served cheese toasties or fish finger sandwiches. Thank you so much to Charlotte & Sam for allowing us to be a part of their day. We're sending them both much love from all at Team F4D. charlotte-mullard-wedding-5 charlotte-mullard-wedding-7 charlotte-mullard-wedding-1 charlotte-mullard-wedding-9

Real Wedding – Josie & Scott – Eden House, Broughton Hall

Josie and Scott first contacted us in August 2016 to discuss catering for their wedding at Eden House, Broughton Hall in September 2017. They were such a fab couple to work with and it didn't take long for us all to put together a menu that we knew they and their guests would love. hanby-wedding-5-jim-poyner Following on from a drinks reception where they had a selection of hot and cold canapés, guests were seated to a starter of Baked Brie, Parma Ham, Pate, Sunblush Tomatoes & Chutneys served with warm Pitta breads on slates. hanby-wedding-6-jim-poyner Josie and Scott wanted their guests to have a choice for the main course and they were able to opt for either Lamb Rump Roasted with Garlic & Rosemary, served with a rich red wine jus or a Pork Trio of Belly, Loin and Bacon & Sausage Lollipops served with a Café au Lait sauce. These were served with Dauphinoise potatoes and fresh seasonal vegetables. Vegetarians dined on Roasted Leeks with Lemon, Ginger & Pinenut Brittle spilling out of a Mille Feuille of flaky pastry.
