Planning a Wedding?

Your wedding catering is a big deal to us. Not only do we put a lot of work into your food, but we take careful consideration of all aspects of planning and logistics.  We are experts in logistically difficult catering, such as islands and farm catering. We pride ourselves on using our many years of experience to ensure that you have a comfortable and easy wedding day, with fabulous food and drinks. We can suggest funky cocktails and late night nosh, such as sea salt and rosemary potato wedges with chipotle lemon aioli, maple glazed local back bacon on a bun, mini black bean and rice burgers or shrimp skewers.  We try to accommodate different budgets, from local pulled pork and salads in a buffet format to gourmet multi-course sit down dinners, the choice is yours!  We love our rustic served buffets, which beautifully showcase the bounty of our local farmers made into delicious salads, breads and grilled meats.

Generally, wedding catering falls into two categories: Either you have a cocktail and hors d’oeuvre reception with lots of served appetizers and a table with an artisanal cheese board, fruit and crackers and different dips, and maybe some little party sandwiches and wraps, or you have a few hors d’oeuvres after the ceremony, then dinner.
