Jess and the team at The Independent made our wedding preparation so enjoyable and instilled in us the confidence that our reception was going to be organised and our guests' needs were going to be well taken care of. The atmosphere at the restaurant is edgy yet sophisticated, relaxed yet first-class, and the banquet-style menu really encouraged guest mingling. Altogether, the staff and venue created the dreamiest setting for celebrating our honestly exceeded our expectations! Cannot recommend enough!

Our day was amazing and will never be forgotten. We are so grateful to the team of The Independent for all of their amazing work, aswell as the work leading up to the day. The service was incredible and the food was insanely beautiful. Now that I am back at work I am still getting the same feedback from people - that they really enjoyed the wedding and thought the venue did a fantastic job with the food and service. Many guests said that our Wedding was one of the best ones they had ever attended, and that they are still dreaming about the food.

Jess was amazing. She helped us so much with the wedding planning and she coordinated everything on the wedding day. The major plus is the food. Our family and friends could not stop raving about the food and the beautiful venue. Thanks to Jess and the staff for making our day so awesome.
