Wedding Catering

The planning of your wedding catering for your big day can be challenging and very stressful. Every part of your big day should be as important as the next.

 At “Plenty Of Thyme” we take the stress away from planning the food with our experienced team of chefs who will create your own personally tailored menus. Our front of house team will not only stream line your day with directing of guests, dressing of tables, serving of food and everything in between.

Whether you’re looking for a more traditional canape and three course wedding breakfast, to a relaxed sharing platter and BBQ, or even a particular themed occasion we have it covered.

 Every wedding is individual and we treat each event this way.

We offer face to face meetings to really understand what style of food you’re looking for so we can tailor menus exactly to you. We also offer a tasting to finalise the perfect food.

We work closely and are experienced with Marquee, Tipi and Dry hire Venues and can provide full catering equipment where required. Suggestions and recommendations can also be provided for companies to suit your event.

We have recently started working with New Hall Vineyard and can offer their award winning wines at a discounted rate. New Hall is one of the oldest vineyards in the Country and their wines are second to none. You can check out what they offer at
