What our customers think:

“We wanted to write to tell you how happy we were with your service at our wedding. The staff were fantastic, friendly, helpful and professional. The planning advice with the marquee and catering equipment that you offer helped a great deal, the whole process was smooth and well organised – even the personal touches like ribbon on the napkins. Last but not least, the food was delicious – our guests are still raving about it. Thank you so much for all your hard work we will be recommending Square 1 to everyone we know!” 2017
