Surprise Silver Wedding Anniversary for the Heaths

Friends of Vanilla in Allseasons, Margaret and Mick Heath were recently thrown a surprise party to celebrate their silver wedding anniversary.

Mick and Margaret

The Heaths are the owners of beautiful bespoke Heaton House Farm and dedicated events company Heaton House Events. They have been now united in matrimony for 25 years. A real inspiration to the couples who they have helped to celebrate their own special day.

Mick and Margaret

It was a real honour to be asked to cater for this very special event and we were thrilled to receive the following thank you note from the Heath’s daughter, and manager of Heaton House Events, Sarah:

A MASSIVE ‘thank you’ for providing such a wonderful array of food at my parents’ surprise silver wedding anniversary.

When I first dreamed up the idea of a surprise event for them at home, you were the first company that sprung to mind as you are all so easy to work with and creative with food – perfect for this event. However, as my family and yourselves work regularly and closely together, I knew it wouldn’t be easy keeping it a surprise – but you did, and pulled it off to perfection.

Drinks Table

Lizzie was brilliant at the start by making sure the drinks table and venue were set up to perfection. The guests loved the variety of canapés; the mini fish and chip baskets were to die for!

We had a quick group photograph and as soon as it was taken, Simon had all the items ready for barbecuing – this timing was impeccable.

VinA Catering

The quality of food was amazing, and I’ve never seen steaks so big in all my life!

The dessert tier looked fabulous and I’ve never heard so many ‘yums’ from people as they took their first bite as I did in that five minutes. My cousins particularly enjoyed the brownies so much they took a bundle home with them!

Everyone enjoyed the food and commented on how friendly and attentive the staff were.

Thank you to you all for keeping it secret, and also making the event absolutely perfect!

A Little Thanks…

We recently catered for a Baby Grow charity ball at Chester Polo Club. It was a privilege to be asked to cater for the charity event and we were even more overwhelmed by the thanks we received from them:

Thank you Note

I would like to say a big thank you to Vanilla in Allseasons for the fantastic catering at my recent charity ball. The food was delicious and many guests commented on how good it was.

As the organiser of the event, I was incredibly grateful for the exceptional service. Nothing was too much trouble for Adam and his team. Although I had lots of last minute additions to the event, all these were calmly accommodated. At one point Adam even stepped in to help put with an electrical problem the band had!

I can wholeheartedly recommend Vanilla in Allseasons for their excellent food and exceptional.

Event Organiser

We just want to say a huge thank you and well done to everyone involved in the event.


Our line of work allows us to meet lots of fantastic people and have involvement in many events and occasions.

Sadly, these occasions are not always happy ones. When catering for a sensitive occasion such as a funeral, we take pride in ensuring our clients have nothing to worry about. Organising any event is stressful and when personal loss and sadness is a factor, worrying about whether your guests are hungry or looked after is the last thing you need.

The Vanilla in Allseasons team offer a freindly, discreet and fully comprehensive service. Today, we received a lovely thank you note from a client.

“My thanks, and that of my family, for doing such a great job yesterday. As always, your professionalism and that of your team, made such a difference to us – I knew absolutely that everything would go well and that all the food would be excellent. There were numerous compliments. If you ever need a reference or would like a testimonial, please don’t hesitate to ask

– Louise”

Thank you Louise. We are so glad that we were able to help in a small way during a difficult time.
