Our Testimonials

‘Dear Kunal and the team,
It has been six months since our wedding day and we still find it hard to put into words our appreciation for all that you guys did for us.
From dealing with the glassware to being flexible with some of our requests we felt you and the entire single or double team went above and beyond leading up to the day. You guys simply took away a lot of headache away from us which meant we were able to enjoy the day wholeheartedly, for that we will be ever grateful.
Kunal there isn’t much more I can say about you that hasn’t said before, but you really are the man! Easy to talk to, always contactable and your suggestions around some of the detail were spot on.
The guests were extremely complimentary about the service too. We loved the fact that the bar staff were able to have a laugh and joke with the guests, they loved how efficient the service was and overall it contributed to the vibe of the night being just as we wanted.
The special menu drinks went down a treat, from the pink lemonade and vodka, to the skittle bombs. There were plenty sore but smiley heads in morning I assure you.
Finally, for anyone currently planning a wedding who are considering a bar service for your day. I would pretty much stop looking elsewhere, pick up the phone and give these guys a call.
Single or double – Free you from the hassle purchasing your own drinks, relying on untrained bar staff, dealing with glassware co-ordination, planning the co-ordination with other suppliers and overall were very accommodating.
Thanks again and hopefully I bump into you guys soon.’

‘To Kunal & the team, Well what an event! My clients were overwhelmed with the personal service you gave throughout the whole wedding planning stages. You helped us create a bespoke menu to reflect the attention to detail which was covered in this event. We set you a challenge of providing us with an ice sculpture in the shape of a peacock which would then serve our guests later in the evening and you delivered down to a t. Your team was on point always advising myself when needed about bar requirements and worked with my team so well. We look forward to more events with you!’
– Rohita Pabla, Luxury Wedding & Event Planners, April 2017
‘Dear Kunal and team, Just a short note to say, thank you very much for all your assistance throughout our wedding events. The professionalism of yourself and all your team has been impeccable and your planning, logistics, attention to detail and, above all, efficiency impressed not only ourselves and our guests but crucially all our event caterers, who have all said it was an absolute pleasure working with your company. Not only did you meet all our (many) expectations, you, in fact, exceeded them!
We will, of course, have no hesitation in recommending your services to our friends and family. You were completely right and it certainly made sense for you to look after all our beverage requirements (including the glassware) and it meant the caterers could focus on what they do best, i.e. food as opposed to drinks. We wish you and your team all the best and we have every confidence in your future success.
Please keep in touch!’
– Nilesh Majeethia and Family, Holiday Inn (Elstree) & Beaumont House, April 2017

‘The moment I met Kunal and Sam, we knew that the vision, professionalism and most importantly their stand up personalities would make our wedding perfect. From start to finish we were not disappointed, from our personalised wedding glasses, to our personalised bar, not a foot wrong and the most flawless bar I have ever seen. These guys are perfect from start to finish, our bar ran to perfection and I’d pick them for every event ever! You guys are superstars!’
– Anoushka and Ashav, Copthone, Effingham, April 2017
‘What can i say about this company!…simply amazing! as an event coordinator it’s so refreshing to work with a company as great as this!

– Amanda Kerr, Special occasions sales agent, Holiday Inn-London, April 2017
‘Dear Kunal and the Single or Double Events team, We simply cannot thank you enough for your important part in my brother and new sister-in-lawís wedding in December 2016. Kunal was professional yet added excitement and helpful guidance when we first approached the company. His communication thereafter offered sensible opinions in an efficient manner; ideal when you have every other aspect of the wedding to also plan. This warmth and approachability was carried right through to the day and even the professional communication to settle things thereafter, which I feel demonstrates the teamís sincere wish to deliver fantastic service.
Preparing for the wedding reception on the day, the team stood out as being impeccably organised. They even supported us with overall organisation when it was needed and fitted effortlessly into the overall event. The team were commended on being inventive and most of all courteous and friendly to our family and friends. Kunal genuinely felt like family by the end, as his involvement was so seamless and he took such great care in looking after us and our guests; for me, this clearly shows his expertise in the field. I would thoroughly recommend Single or Double Events and whole-heartedly thank each and every member of their team for all of their efforts in making this momentous occasion so special for us.’
– Soram Patel-(Groom’s Sister), Quendon Hall, Essex, December 2016
‘Single or Double Events was recommend to us by a friend. Previously I had heard great things about them so it was a no brainer to contact them. Working with Kunal was a great experience; from our initial contact Kunal made us feel very welcome and made us feel important. He took time to understand what we wanted and paid attention to what our guests would drink and then made a tailor made drinks package. The best part of working with Kunal was that he provided great service from start to finish and would always stay in touch with me giving me updates. On the big day Kunal and his team were at the venue early setting up the bar area and making sure that drinks would be cold enough before serving. Most importantly Kunal made me a promise that he will deliver on the day and that nothing will run out. Kunal and his team exceeded this promise! With Single or Double Events you will get honesty, reliability and most importantly your guests will love the service. I would definitely recommend them. It takes away the stress and hassle of organising your bar and it is cost effective’
– Drew & Kavita, Copthorne Effingham, September 2016
Single and Double events did a full bar set up for my mendhi, and provided the drinks for my wedding, mandvo and reception. As everyone knows planning your wedding is extremely stressful, but having suppliers you can trust and rely on makes it so much easier – Kunal and Single and Double events were just that. He went above and beyond to cater to our every need, and showed patience, consideration, honesty and reassurance. He has a huge network of other suppliers too that he can recommend to you to make your planning easier, and has worked with all the big names in the industry so you know your event will run smoothly as they work well together. He gave us so much advice and many tips that provided invaluable for how things went at the event.
On the mendhi night they blew our 150 guests away, with the slickness of service, the variety of drinks and cocktails, and the impressive appearance of the set up. So many people complimented them to us and said it made the night. Kunal and Reena also went out of their way to look after me personally on the night and check I was ok and that was an amazing personal touch that I won’t forget. They got on so well with my family members too and felt like part of the family by the end of the night. My Dad genuinely misses his meetings with Kunal and won’t stop praising him.
On the wedding day and reception night it was so good to know there was nothing to worry about in regards to the drinks, as I knew without a doubt our agreed list would’ve have been delivered to the caterers on time. I didn’t even feel the need to check or ask as I knew I could rely on him.
Before the events, during and after the support from Single and Double was unforgettable and I would recommend them to everyone for their special day.
– Sonam Shah (formerly Jobanputra), Rickmansworth & Intercontinental-Park Lane, July 2016
“Single or Double Events were absolutely exceptional at our wedding reception! The whole team were professional, attentive and polite. They were able to deliver fantastic service to all of our guests and were very accommodating. We also found them to be creative as they were able to create a unique, great tasting ‘Special Shot’ which matched the colour of our evening décor! Kunal really went out of his way to look after us throughout- from the initial first meeting right up to and during our event, and was always quick to respond to emails and calls. We are so grateful, and would not hesitate to recommend Single or Double Events!”
– Vishal & Amisha, Syon Park, July 2016
“Weddings can be an extremely stressful time, in single or double events we found the people who could take that pressure away. Managed by Kunal, the staff provided a first class service from the start of our event till the end. Kunal in particular was fantastic, always available to give us advice on how to make the best of our day, we built a strong relationship & are forever grateful as our guests still speak of the quality of alcohol supplied & also the great service provided. Single or double events delivered everything that was promised & more for that reason when asked for any recommendations we would definitely point people to Kunal & the team, a great team of professionals. Thanks again guys”
– Alvin & Munvinder. Boreham House, June 2015
“Single or Double Events were absolutely amazing! We hired them for our wedding reception and Kunal and his team worked their magic with a fantastic night. Their cocktails (especially the Kir Royals!) were the best I’ve ever tried before. No request was too much for Kunal and he did all he could to ensure our night ran smoothly. Anyone who hires Single or Double events for their event will definitely not be disappointed! Thank you for your great service and for making our big night as special as it was”.
– Hiral and Nimisha x Copthorne, Effingham, June 2015
“We got married in June 2015 at Braxted Park Estate and decided to use Single or Double Events to run our bar for the evening reception. There is only one word we can use to describe their service…. Exceptional.
From beginning to end Kunal was simply amazing. When we met for the first time, it was honestly like meeting an old friend. Kunal was relaxed and talkative. We spoke for ages about our wedding and our plans. He described exactly what we would get from the bar service, plus mentioned that we would get a few extra ‘surprises’. After our meeting the quote came through quickly and Kunal matched my budget. His price was very reasonable. Kunal also had the added benefit of buying back stock that wasn’t used. So we decided to book.
In the run up to the wedding Kunal was always available to contact and had plenty of time to talk. Nothing was too much trouble. He even drove hours out of his way, just to meet us and go through our wedding details.
Before the event the single or double events team couldn’t have prepared more. They had done a few events at the venue already but still called up the venue directly to check details for our wedding. They organised everything so that the bar would run smoothly on the night.
On the day Manish was looking after our bar, as Kunal informed us he had another event to attend. Manish and the rest of the team were brilliant. They all helped so much even with parts not to do with the bar. They made sure our sweet table was set and topped up.
The team had thought of everything to make our day run smoothly. Kunal gave us advice before the wedding about how to cut the cake correctly for our photographs, Manish had even put a tear in the packaging of our champagne bottle so it was easy to open on the night!
They gave everything you would expect and much more. There were plenty of staff behind the bar, lots of drinks, service ran smoothly and most importantly the whole team were so flexible and bent over backwards to meet our needs.
The surprises on the day were great. I won’t say what they were because Kunal informed us it is standard practice for all weddings, but I will say that my wife and I plus all our guests had an unforgettable evening, and it was down in part to single or double events. The team went above and beyond to make sure everyone was happy. 2 months after the reception our friends and family are still talking about the reception and how much fun they had due mostly to the bar team.
Thank you Kunal, Manish and the rest of the team of single or double events for your amazing work. We couldn’t be happier. You made our wedding a party to remember”
– Amer and Anuradha. Braxsted Park Estate, June 2015
“Thank you Reena Patel, Kunal Patel and co for the hard work you put in at my sisters wedding. Your work is amazing! I heard the ‘special shots’ went down a treat. A flawless and professional service…thank you single or double events!”
– Sheetal Peshavaria Raval (sister of the bride), Copthorne Effingham, Aug 2015.
“Thanks so much for everything. We had such a fantastic time and the drinks went down well…in some cases a bit too well!! Everyone loved the mocktails as well by the way. A number of guests commented on them. Thanks for all your patience. I know we changed the tender many a time but it was great having you and your team on board. The day ran so smoothly and we are really happy with how things went. Thanks for your wishes and will def recommend you to friends and family! Best wishes”
– Amali and Lahiru, Northbrook Park, August 2015
“Kunal and his team were absolutely fantastic! The entire crew were professional, hospitable and absolutely to the mark. Kunal met up with us on a few occasions before the wedding and went through things in good detail. He managed to put the missus at ease and it was just the final touches that made everything fantastic. We could not recommend him enough! We are both most grateful!”
– Paddy & Sharon, Royal Garden Hotel, August 2015
“Kunal, Reena and their team were brilliant in organising and producing the desired quality and level of service discussed in our meetings. For our wedding they exceeded our expectations with unique elements within the discussed service, which added value and more importantly will make lasting memories. They worked with other suppliers extremely well, ensuring a smooth event . In summary, they are a brilliant team to work with and they produced a effortless, smooth and memorable reception.”
– Jay & Meera, ILEC Conference Centre, December 2015
“Thank you very much for the top service we received at our reception event. The guests were really impressed with the cocktails and the bar staff. Highly recommend single or double events to anyone!
– Bhavesh & Natasha Patel” – 2014
“Where do I start? The event was a huge success; worth every penny spent. My guests were treated like royalty from start-to-finish. Upon planning, one tends to try and save money where they can, but for the peace of mind and cheer professionalism, we’re glad we decided on using a vendor as opposed to supplying our own alcohol. On many occasions, I’ve had numerous comments on the great service the staff provided, not to mention a ‘service with a smile’. To top off the events, we had the main man, Kunal, present to oversee all aspects of the night…..and this was on his birthday! What can I say, professional through and through. From the first meeting we had with Kunal, he reassured us and tailored the event to our budget. Kunal is very easy to talk to and put us at ease immediately… was like he had a crystal ball. I would highly recommend his services to any one of my family and friends. Some of which have already booked for upcoming events. I wish Kunal and the team all the success they deserve. Lots of love”
– Deeps and Trina 2014
“Thank you single and double events for all your help in the run up to our wedding and on the wedding day. You took the stress out of organising the alcohol and your service was both professional and fun! We would definitely recommend you to others!”
– Jaini & Ravi Chauhan August 2014
“Single & Double went above and beyond their duty to make our wedding reception perfect. They are professional, efficient, and reliable. If you’re having any event these are the people to call”
– Sam & Priya Kotadia – 2013
“Both Mihir and I wanted to privately say a HUGE THANKS for all the effort you put into our reception. The evening was such a success and we know your hard work had a huge part to play. It was important to us that we got along with all our suppliers, however, you actually felt like a friend!”
– Mihir & Noorpur Pattni – 2013
“Single or Double Events provides a highly efficient, excellent, reliable service that we appreciated so much that we asked them to manage our second daughter’s wedding a year later with the full confidence that all was in safe hands and that we did not have to worry at all. The most taxing part for us was to decide what we wanted served for another group over 450 guests. The manager, Kunal Patel helped us make difficult decisions about quantities, glassware, bar things, service etc. Nothing was too much trouble. He was very prompt in replying to all our emails even when we decided to change things late at night. We appreciated this very much indeed. Not only were his costs competitive but he also does a sale or return policy which meant that anything unopened not used was refunded. We could not ask for anything more. Each of the venues we used were pleased that Single or Double Events also cleared up fully after the event. We know that all our guests on both occasions were pleased with the service, quality and professionalism. Many of them who have events due in the next few years have taken his contact details. We recommend Single or Double Events highly for all that they did for our events.”
– Father of the Bride Dr Deenesh Khoosal, 2013
“Once again thank you for everything you did for me and Arjun in the lead up to and on both of our events. We couldn’t have asked for a higher level of customer service form you. The event went very well and everyone loved the bar service and drinks more importantly”
– Arjun & Kavita Desai, 2012
“Then it comes the drinks – we nearly ran the bar dry – boy did we drink and the madness of our crowds and the drinks was managed by Kunal and his team from Single or Double Events. Mocktails, Cocktails, Shots and mixers – he had them all – and served them all! There were many sore heads at breakfast on Sunday!”
