"I honestly cannot thank you enough for the world's most amazing picnic! We were blessed with the weather and sat in the beautiful botanical gardens with a wonderful view to match our wonderful food. We went to Bennelong that night and it did not compare to your delicious feast! The food was so impressive, your service was great and every little detail had been thought about. Keep doing what you're doing because we will be back!!!
