We hired Salt and Seed for our intimate elopement. Their communication to get our menu right for our special day was great. The food was absolutely superb. They were very friendly and easy going which just added to our experience. Would absolutely recommend them to everyone! We hope to have the pleasure of dining with you again.
What to expect from us
We will discuss the number of attendees and what style of service suits you best.
We will also go over any dietary requirements for you or your guests. Feel free to let us know of any requests you have.
Once we know what we’re looking at, We will send you menus to look over and a quote. It just takes a 30% deposit to confirm the date. The full payment will be due three weeks prior to the event with confirmation of the final number of attendees.
We will call you a week before the event to see if everything is going to plan. In case of any final changes in numbers or dietary requirements, this should give us ample time to ensure everything goes smoothly on the big day.
Having done most of the prep work in our own kitchen the day before, we will arrive a few hours before to meet you or your MC in person if we haven’t already and to set up either in the venues kitchen or set up our outdoor kitchen. We will work to the time sheet you will have already sent us.
