Forage & Graze
Private Dining, Weddings and Events.
Forage & Graze is a small family run business. Campbell and Rachel offer a personalised, intimate service to their brides and grooms…. choosing to cater just ten weddings a year. This means they have time to get to know you really well over the period leading up to your wedding and this close relationship ensures they get it just right. Catering magic happens on your wedding day.
Forage & Graze specialise in banquet style dining. If you can imagine the warmth and familiarity of sitting around with a group of close friends, and passing dishes of food around the table. Campbell aims to recreate this feel. A shared feast on platters with sides and accompaniments all placed down the centre of the table … and as dishes are finished the next dishes come out. Not so much courses, as one long progressive banquet. Forage & Graze believe this style of dining helps ease what can be a slightly awkward social occasion, with guests not knowing each other that well….it helps guests to meet each other across the table, gives them common ground, a job to do, something to talk about.
Pre-banquet Forage & Graze can tickle your taste buds with a selection of grazing options, including canapés, a ploughmans table and oyster bars. Their bar team can shake and stir your favourite cocktails as well as providing a full bar from arrival to the close of your wedding party. Their home baked dessert table, especially their much loved hot choc churros(!), is a popular addition for later in the evening.
Campbell works closely with an established local network of seafood and free range heritage meat producers, cheese makers and fruit and vegetable growers, to tailor a fresh, seasonal menu and create an unforgettable dining experience for you, your family and friends. Rachel will hold your hand through the planning process…with 20 years of experience in design, styling and event management and 15 years of local knowledge she can assist in all areas of your wedding planning as required. She has a jam packed little black book ready to go!
Ultimately Forage and Graze are all about bringing together family and friends to celebrate in a warm, heartfelt, intimate space. Give us a call or drop us an email to chat with us further about your wedding plans.
