Paul and Tessa - Owners of Newmarket Hampers

Welcome to Newmarket Hampers - Newmarket hampers was born out of a passion for good food and all things pretty and vintage.

Newmarket Hampers was founded by Paul and Contessa Jeffs - we specialise in quintessential hired wicker hampers for picnic weddings and events. 

The idea for wedding picnic hampers began with our own Alice in Wonderland inspired wedding reception.....the business has grown from a passion into an established wedding business - as we are family run everything has that personal touch and we like to get to know our clients so we can be part of their special day.

We would love to hear from you so  Please book onto our next tasting event to meet us and try some food!

Newmarket Hampers is based outside the Cathedral City of Ely and we deliver our hampers across the South East in chill boxes ensuiring everything remains at the correct temperature. Contact us now to check availability!

Amazing food, beautiful hampers and impeccable service! Thank you so much for providing hampers for our wedding on 9th June, we have had so many compliments on the quantity and quality of the picnics. We are so chuffed we had a picnic wedding, it created the most relaxed and informal atmosphere that got people talking. Just excellent and would recommend to anyone in a heartbeat xxx

An absolute pleasure to work with, great family run business. These guys are so accommodating and thought of lovely touches to help you make the day special. We booked 90 hampers, split between dietary requirements, for our wedding in June. We had so many positive comments about how nice and exciting it was to open up individual hampers for lunch! Thanks guys

Thank you so much to Tessa and everyone at new market hampers. The picnic hampers were everything we wanted for our wedding breakfast. The food is superb and all of our guests commented on how delicious it was and how much they had to eat! We loved that we could pick what we wanted in the hampers and could enjoy our favourite foods on our wedding day. The hampers also looked lovely in our venue and we enjoyed seeing all of our guests sharing the food round the tables. Thank you for being so easy to work with and thank you for supplying the apple crates when we realised we needed them the day before the wedding! We will definately be using new market hampers again. And am already craving more brownies!! Xx

Thank you so much to Newmarket Hampers for making our wedding so special. The picnic hampers were perfect! Everyone was so happy and sharing together - exactly ...what I wanted for our special day! The food was gorgeous, really tasty and filling! I keep on dreaming of their chocolate brownie! Our vegans and veggies were all very happy with their food as well (as were the meat-eaters!) Our gluten free veggie said it was the best food she had had at a wedding!
Very accommodating, very professional, couldn't be happier
Didn't even notice their clean-up they were so swift!
Thank you so much, I'm hoping we can use you again very soon!

We had a wonderful wedding reception at Clissold House in London last August 6th, and I have been meaning to share a few of the images of your picnic baskets/cheese cake with you for a while now. I think post-wedding planning my mind decided it had had enough of to do lists for a while!

Thanks again for your excellent service, and of course delicious food! The picnic baskets went down extremely well (I caught my father, who had been assigned to basket 1, heading back inside saying 'i'm checking out no. 5 now!) and as we got very lucky with the weather, we got the park picnic we had dreamed of, and it made our wedding all the more unique and memorable.

I just want to say a huge thank you again! I cannot put into words how grateful Stewart and I am for everything you did for us on our special day! You truly went over and above and made sure everything ran perfectly!
Not only that, but the amount of compliments we got about how wonderful the food was, was amazing! You truly out did yourselves and made it a day to remember!
Thank you for sorting out our wedding cake crisis and then incorporating it into puddings! It was just wonderful!
We wish you all the best in the future and hope your business flourishes, as you both only deserve great things!
Kindest regards and Thank you untill forever!
