‘I cannot begin to thank you enough for everything you did to make the best party anyone has been too! This is how good you were – I forget we were throwing the party.

A huge thank you to Zest.’ - The Honourable Mrs Mark Vestey, Private Party.

‘You really did us proud. Thank you for making it happen which such style, for organising it and us so efficiently with the minimum of fuss. Somehow you made the whole process not just painless but great fun! A million miles from the headache it would have been without you and Zest. Really it was a triumph. I can’t wipe the smile from my face. Great memories indeed. Thank you and the team so much.’ -  Philip Whalley, following a joint 50th birthday party with Julian Mayo and Tim Jefferies.

‘I just wanted to say thank you again for such an incredible weekend. Without exception everyone told me it was the best party and the best wedding they had ever been to (including their own). The passion, enthusiasm and attention to detail that you brought, not just to the event, but also to the months of planning was amazing. I believe it was down to you both that ‘BrideZilla’ never appeared. Throughout the whole process I knew that you “got it” – you knew what I would like before I even said anything. Everything was just perfect and this comes from a girl with slight OCD over the detail. Thank you again for creating the wedding and weekend of our dreams.’ - Julie Feasey, wedding and weekend in St Tropez.

'Firstly, a huge thank you for all your amazing hard work and brilliant organisation in making our wedding so perfect. It was a huge relief to know…all I had to do was call you and you could worry for me! And then on the day you were both in your element and I wonder how anything would have happened without you! I really would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making the day more special and magical than anything I could have possibly dreamt.’ - The wedding of Jules Jay and Henry Buxton.

‘Thank you for helping me to mastermind and execute the party of the 2nd millennium and for being such an enchanting co-conspirator.’ - Celia Atkin, following a party in the South of France.

 ‘What can I say! It really was the party of the year. Thank you very much for everything. We all had the most fantastic time and it was a real pleasure working with you.’ - Georgie Fry, Joint 21st and 50th at home.
