Perfect wedding catering
Marrying taste with substance
At Hereford Kitchen we delight in adding a special element to your wedding with our range of delicious and memorable catering options.
Our focus as a catering firm is all about delicious seasonally-driven food. We are passionate about using locally sourced produce in our menu. We delight in keeping our dishes simple, natural and fresh, so that you can enjoy our locally grown produce at its best.
Along with the menu charge there is also charge for service staff at the function.
All our dishes have a rural-inspired style - with all main options accompanied by the perfect homemade relish or sauce to enhance your dining experience. Hereford Kitchen’s flavours are backed up by our presentation with salads and main offerings presented on gorgeous French Country ceramic platters. We also complement this look with smart wooden boards and pewter platters.
We also have gorgeous Santo Alessi main and side plates available for you to hire for your function. Let us know if you are interested in these service.
For us its all about creating your dream, so please let us know if you have anything in particular in mind. We look forward to helping add that special element to your wedding.
Most people start with a range of our canapes while photos are being done etc - we'd recommend four-six items/head depending on your timelines. We can also provide a hamper of canapes for the bridal party to snack on while photos are being taken. Alternatively we offer a range of platter options as an ideal starter.
For the main meal our most popular choice is the buffet, where you can choose a combination of our beautifully cooked and presented meats and gourmet salads which are served on gorgeous French Country ceramic platters to the table 'family style' where guests can help themselves, breaking the ice with others as they pass the salmon etc.. If you would prefer we can serve the dishes on a buffet table.
If you're like me the description buffet carries a little negative baggage, but you'll be surprised - this is no Cobb and Co smorgasbord affair!! It really does work fantastically because the food is just so tasty and well-presented.
We also offer plated meals which we deliver to the table in an alternate drop (A:B:A:B...). Because of the large numbers at a wedding and the need for guests to be served in a tight window of time, we can only do two options.
For desserts you can do dessert platters to the table or a buffet or we also offer a plated option. See the full range of menus.
Every event we do garners a great response from couples and guests who are delighted with our food and service.
Prior to starting Hereford Kitchen we had set up and ran the highly regarded and successful café Alimento so you can be assured that you are in the hands of professionals who know what they are doing.
Some of our recent wedding feedback:
Thank you SO much for everything you did on Saturday, the food was outstanding! Absolutely delicious - you went above and beyond to make our day special for us so thank you!
We have been passing your name on to people as so many people have asked who our caterers were! Once again thank you so much, we were thrilled with everything you did for us and your communication with us was awesome!
Hannah Giles and Paul, Ataahua
Thank you so much for the wonderful food yesterday - everyone has been raving about it!
Troy Hoogeven and Hannah Whittle, Pauanui
It’s a couple of weeks since our daughter Maggie married the love of her life at Ataahua and we’re still basking in the afterglow. Hamish and Catherine did an absolutely magnificent job with the food and all the comments about it were nothing short of stellar reviews! The beef was magnificent!
Their menus made the task of choosing salads and meats very easy and their pricing very competitive. We were thrilled with the end result. Thank you both for your professional approach and easy manner.
Sara Laing, Maggie & Michael’s wedding, Ataahua
I just wanted to pass on our thanks for a beautiful meal at our wedding back on the 7th March. We had a great day (even though it rained) and we had so many comments on how delicious the food was.
