Our Favourite Dining Styles for Weddings 

Choose the perfect dining style and menu to best reflect you as a newly married couple. 
 The Plated Sit-Down Meal 

You can invite your guests to enjoy the beauty and formality of a sit-down dinner where entrees, mains and desserts are served at the table to each guest. This wonderful choice creating an atmosphere of traditional elegance where you can be specific about timing and the overall look and feel of the meal and space.  

The Family Style Meal 

 The “family style” dinner where the protein element is served on generous sized platters. Sides of potato gratin or baby potatoes, and seasonal vegetables or salads are passed around the table. Easy friendly conversation starts as guests pass the platters. This is a clever way to serve guests with special diets such as vegan and gluten free. 

 Floating or Free Form Dining  

For an opportunity to mix freely with your guests choose “free form dining” also known as “a floating supper”. Your guests will be offered creatively presented, delicious canapes, larger sized bites and sweet treats. These circulate continuously to form your celebration meal leaving you extra space and time on the dance floor.  

Buffet Meal 

Your guests serve themselves by choosing from a variety of attractively displayed dishes with classics such as Ham on the Bone and Fillet of Beef 

Mix and Match 

Our delicious menu offerings below outline how different dining styles and menus can be combined to best reflect your vision.

“I will never be able to thank you all enough for the wonderful service, food and management of Quinn & Amber’s wedding last Saturday at Dransfield House. To say we were delighted is an absolute understatement. Everyone made comment about the fantastic food – from the canapés through to desert. And of course the food you provided on Sunday at my home blew them away.

Business friends from Auckland said they wished you were up there and two senior managers based in Wellington were going back to work to change their catering company. I hope they are as good as their word.

It was an incredibly happy occasion which we shared with family and friends from around the world. We had lots of laughs, lots of good wine and fabulous food, thanks to you all. If anyone is ever in doubt about using your services please do not hesitate to tell them to ring me. I am now your biggest fans. One of many, I’m sure.”

“I just wanted to say thank you for doing such an amazing job with our wedding catering. We have had so many comments from our guests about how delicious the food was and how wonderful your staff were. Having good food for our wedding was one of my top priorities and I am usually quite a harsh critic – I couldn’t fault a thing!

Everything was simply delicious!!!

Your professionalism and great advice leading up to the day were invaluable. After our last meeting, I came out feeling like I really didn’t need to worry about anything; you would just take care of things, which

Thank you for being a big part of the reason our wedding was simply the best day of my life.

I’ll certainly be recommending you to anyone else I know getting married”Megan Hurnard – Bride

“Thank you so much for all your efforts and the food was outstanding, really really, good.

We had lots of comments from the guests too saying how much they had enjoyed the food. I loved the pavlova as well, just what we were after. Nice and light but plenty of flavour.

I could go on and on. Suffice to say when we were collecting the leftover booze I was singing your praises to a couple checking out the boatshed for their wedding. Keep up the good work”
