Forage & Graze - Wedding Catering - Honeywed

Harnessing a pure affinity with nature, Campbell and Rachel Rowe’s incredible private dining and wedding banquets are a celebration of nature, community, and togetherness. Recently expanding their offering to include wedding and event planning and styling, Forage and Graze is the product of self-proclaimed modern day foragers, who love nothing more than creating epic events punctuated by damn good food.

Set in Byron Bay’s Hinterland region, not only will Forage and Graze design and prepare delicious handcrafted menus at a venue or location of your choosing, they’ll also work closely with you in the lead up to your wedding or event. Forage and Graze ensure all dishes chosen are perfectly suited to your preferences and are created from only the very freshest seasonal produce. Campbell and Rachel source most of their ingredients from their own gardens, and if not, from surrounding farms, fields and oceans – welcoming you into their family with open arms.

Have a peek at their video here, giving insight into the naturalistic charm of Forage and Graze. 

Exclusively hosting just ten weddings or private dinners each year, the personable touches, coordination and attention to detail that Forage and Graze apply to their intimate affairs are nothing short of excellent.  True to their ethos of quality over quantity, Forage and Graze’s small-scale events are designed in such a fashion so that each individual festivity receives their full love, attention, and care.
