Testimonials

Incredible coordination of our big day

"Thank you Jess and Team for the most fabulous spread and incredible coordination of our big day. Catering for 100 ex-rowers and cyclists was no mean feat and all of our guests have talked to us about how amazing the food was and their disappointment that even they couldn't quite finish it all!

Working with you from our initial enquiry, through delicious tasting and then the big day itself was always fun and easy and it was so lovely that we felt completely relaxed on the day, confident of what a great job you and your team would do running the show!

We loved your food so much we can't wait to eat it again at the next family function in May 2017!

All our love and thank-yous"

Best veggie catering ever at a wedding

Thanks so much again for such a wonderful job last weekend. All of our guests have been raving about the food. My bridesmaids were especially giddy with joy to receive a pudding bowl with a piece of everything in it!! I'm so glad you and the team also had fun.

We will recommend you to everyone!! I wish you could make all of my suppers from now on!....We really were over the moon with our food and guests have also raved about it. I thought you'd like to know that I got a text from one of the veggie guests saying it was the best veggie catering she'd ever had at a wedding.

Better then we we could ever have imagined

Ian and I just wanted to thank you SO SO much for making our wedding food better than we possibly could have ever imagined! We have had nothing but compliments about it ever since and honestly we could not have asked for anything more than what you provided for us.

Thank you for making it so much fun and really was an honour to have you guys as part of the day :)…..You can be assured we will recommend you to anyone and everyone that will listen!

Lizzy and Ian (Wedding sharing platters, evening picnic)

Totally perfect and personalised

A massive thank you from both of us to you and your team. We have had so many people tell us how much they loved the wedding food and that they loved the relaxed vibe of the sharing platters. It all went down so well with everyone and all the food was absolutely delicious!

Ever since we first contacted you, you have gone above and beyond in every way to make every detail of our wedding catering totally perfect and personalised. We cannot thank you enough! You thought of everything to make it all work seamlessly and all your planning is so very much appreciated. Everything ran so smoothly on the day and you made us so feel so relaxed and at ease to leave everything in your very capable hands. You are an absolute star and we are so glad we found Brighton Bakes all those months ago!

Best food ever at a wedding

We really can’t thank you and your team enough for making our wedding day such a fun, relaxed and very special day.  All our guests are raving about your food and how lovely you and your staff are (a lot of people said it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding). And Georgie and Jack were loved by all parents 🙂 …..What a super day - thank you a million million times.”

Chloe and Dave (Wedding afternoon tea, sharing platters)

Awesome

Thankyou so so much for everything you and your team did to make our wedding so special.  It definitely wouldn't have been so awesome if you guys weren't there!  So many of our guests have commented on how wonderful the food was (think we can safely say that nobody went hungry!!), and how well your team looked after everyone.  They were all so so friendly, and no glass was ever empty!  For us it was a total godsend, finding you for our 'Big Day', you made us feel so comfortable from the start, completely understood what we wanted, then went over and above to make everything absolutely perfect.”

Genuine passion for baking

We have worked with Jess for the last two years catering for some of our hen parties and as well as being totally professional it is obvious she has a genuine passion for baking and cooking as well as people. This combination makes her an ideal host and you can tell all her food is cooked with love. 

Helen Taggart, Owner Metro-Deco café (personal chef brunches and lunches)

... wish she could cook for me every day!

Having worked closely with Jessica for a number of years, I can truly say I love her food – the way it tastes and the way it looks!  Numerous book launches, buffets, canapé and dinner parties have all been delightful, delicious and stress-free – Jessica always seems to go the extra mile.  I only wish she could cook for me every day!

Carol Biss, MD Book Guild Publishing (book launches and personal dinner and canapé parties)

Great feast of succulent treats

Jess catered my monstrous book launch and in that first moment of the crowd tasting the great feast of succulent treats before them I knew they were on my side - the rest was plain sailing. Top tip: Slay the taste buds first, then move onto the monsters.

Out-of-this-World Food

I literally do not know where to start, we were so lucky to find you, you were so helpful, polite and thorough from day one. The attention to detail in everything you do is incredible, and all this even before we tasted your out-of-this-world food! Our guests jumped at the chance for seconds and thirds! We had so many lovely comments from the guests, and a few were even telling us it was the best wedding food they ever had. We cannot thank you enough – you are an angel!

Perfectly tailored food

I just wanted to …say thank you for the fantastic service that you provided for our wedding. Simon and I agree that we think you went above and beyond to help us plan our wedding and make it so special. We were so impressed with how quickly and thoroughly you communicated with us, answering our queries, and helping us to plan everything down to the smallest detail.

This helped us so much with coping with the stress of organising a wedding. I personally felt so relieved and reassured to be able to communicate so effectively with you. It gave me a great deal of confidence about the wedding day…..We and our guests have so much high praise for the food that you provided. It was beautifully presented and tasted wonderful……Your catering really met our description of rustic, hearty, English food.

We think that the service that you provide is excellent and of a high professional standard, from the taster session (we knew as soon as we left your apartment that we wanted you to provide our wedding menu), to all the detailed communication that followed. It was so helpful to have you prompt us about all the small aspects of planning wedding catering that we might have forgotten….. Your flexibility and creativity really helped to provide wedding food perfectly tailored to us and our vision.

Cannot recommend highly enough

We cannot recommend Brighton Bakes highly enough. Jessica catered for our wedding in March 2016 and did a fantastic job. She impressed us right from the initial contact where she quickly got to grips with what we wanted for our day and came up with creative suggestions which transformed our ideas for our menu into food that was really special and memorable.

Jessica was an enormous help in the planning of the wedding and went above and beyond in helping us to visualise our day and come in on budget. Food was always going to be at the heart of the day and it did not disappoint, as one of our younger guests remarked 100 out of 10!

Lucy and Luke (Wedding hot fork buffet and Pretzel Bar)

The cakes were amazing!

Omg! The cakes etc were amazing! We are still working our way through the left overs. The chocolate and sour cream squares and the peanut cookies were the stars, everyone was raving about them! Thank you so much again! We couldn't have asked for anyone better!

Everyone has not stopped raving about the food

What an absolute dream Saturday was - we felt so relaxed and at ease knowing that you and the team had everything under control and honestly, everyone has not stopped raving about the food and also how friendly all your helpers were. It was beyond amazing, and lovely to have you as an integral part of our wedding. THANK YOU! 

Georgina and Ben (wedding sharing platters)

Thank you so much for all your hard work. Everyone had a brilliant time and loved the food.

The girls absolutely loved it!

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you did last weekend! The dinner was amazing and the girls absolutely loved it! Everyone was raving about it at the wedding on Saturday too and it really helped to ‘make’ the hen weekend.

The fact you were so accommodating with the various dietary requirements was so helpful and really took the worry out of it all too. So a HUGE thanks again!!

Rhianna (hen party dinner)

Food to die for!

Jessica helped make our wedding so special. We owe a huge debt to her and her crew, they exceeded our expectations on every level.  Her tireless help and organization skills took a huge amount of stress out of the whole process.  

During the planning stage, she went out of her way to help us. Sacrificing her time to help us craft the perfect menu catered to our eclectic tastes. She used her local knowledge to find us the best deals on everything from seating and linens, to cutlery and wine glasses. She coordinated everything without a word of complaint, dealing with us with patience and good humour. 

On the day before the wedding Jess and her crew set everything up. They were back on the morning and worked non-stop until after the last guests left.  

The food was to die for! From the cake to the canapes, everyone raved about Jessica’s yummy cooking.  If you want to book a hassle free and professional caterer for your wedding, Jessica and Brighton Bakes should be your first choice

Damian and Mana (wedding canapes, sit-down meal and cake)

Absolutely wonderful food

Thank you so much for the absolutely wonderful food! The buffet was absolutely perfect, the guests couldn't stop complimenting it. It was absolutely delicious and there was almost nothing left by the end of the evening. I wouldn't hesitate to use you again!

Thanks again so much. I've been so impressed with your food and you've been a pleasure to deal with!

Alex Douet – (Wedding buffet)

Fab start to the weekend!

Just wanted to say thank you so much for the amazing brunch you cooked for me and the girls on Saturday. It blew everyone away and was a fab start to the weekend! Think we will be eating your yummy pastries for the next few days there were so many of them!! 

Thanks again - will definitely be recommending you to friends etc!!

Delicate texture

Her croissants are of a delicate texture that make me wish I were small enough to sleep between their folds.
