A well fed photographer means happy clients!
I photographed a wedding at Colville Hall this year where Host Catered. The couple and guests very much enjoyed the canapes that were on offer (and with the go ahead from the couple I also got to try a few and can confirm they were amazing!) The provided the guests and myself with an amazing meal as well. As a vendor some catering companies can be a bit stand offish and don't like to feed photographers (A well fed photographer means a lot of energy for client the rest of the evening!), but Host went above and beyond to ensure I was fed at the same time as guests so I was ready to photograph the speeches. I would totally recommend them to any couples looking, or vendors recommending to their clients.
