Creative, laid back, flexible and reliable, without hesitation I would recommend Thomas the Caterer.

: 5/5 stars by

Michael and I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to Thomas & his team for the amazing food on our wedding day. The guests loved our quirky menu and it suited us perfectly.

Deciding on one dish to serve all 160 of our guests was something we found daunting. From the moment we met Thomas he was enthusiastic and full of ideas and immediately we knew the other caterers we had spoken to didn’t stand a chance. It’s obvious that Thomas loves food.

One of Thomas’ suggestions was to have a ‘small bowl menu’ choosing five of our favourite dishes and serving our guests small portions of each of them. Thomas found it easy to put together a menu after we had described the foods we loved to eat. So we and our guests ate- fish tacos, burgers, noodle salads, veg/hallomi skewers and Thai green curry- which was ALL amazing.

The dessert was so fun and turned everyone into big kids- We chose DIY ice cream sundaes! The squirty cream was a big hit and we have photographic evidence to prove it!

Creative, laid back, flexible (able to amend our chosen menu to meet all the awkward dietary requirements of our guests) and reliable, without hesitation I would recommend Thomas the Caterer for your wedding.

“Thomas and his super team were an absolute pleasure to work with”

: /5 stars by

“From the moment I landed on Thomas The Caterer’s website, I knew we were in with a pretty good shout of finding our caterer for our New Year’s Eve wedding. 
Thomas and his super team were an absolute pleasure to work with – both in the run-up and on the day. There was always a smile, they were accommodating and the level of professionalism they showed gave us the confidence that they would more than deliver. 
The food was delicious, presented beautifully and served just how we wanted it to be – we had so many comments from our guests just how much they loved it. I only wish I’d saved more space to eat more!
But…it was all the extra bits – that are not invoiced, that even the most organised bride could never have envisaged – that extra pair of hands which helps you hang mistletoe, in the dark, up a step ladder the night before the wedding that matter the most! THANK YOU!

“Quietly confident he would provide excellence!” and he did!

: 5/5 stars by

“The high number of recommendations we received when looking for a catering service for our Wedding Party made our choice of wedding caterer easy. Thomas the Caterer’s name came up independently five times within minutes when our request was posted by a friend on a local business women’s forum. These recommendations were clearly justified, when I spoke to Thomas he understood immediately what was required to make our special party unique. There was no hesitation in him at all, he was quietly confident he would provide excellence! I have to say that is truly an understatement, not only was the food amazing, his ability to add a twist to all the delicious dishes proved to be a winner with ourselves and our guests.
Thomas I want you to know compliments are still rolling in two weeks later. A number of guests have said it’s the best party they’ve ever been to with the food being the highlight of the night!
Thank you for taking the stress away, we knew as soon as you arrived we were going to have a very special night!”

You made it fun!

: 5/5 stars by

Hi Thomas,
 
We are literally just back from an amazing honeymoon and the first thing that I have wanted to do when I got back was to put in writing how thankful we are for the amazing food that you and your team put on for us at our wedding.

Your professionalism, enthusiasm and creativity were second to none and you made the food planning so much fun. You tailored a package to our taste and budget and we have had so many fantastic comments from our friends and family – it really was one of the talking points of the day!! And Tommy’s Tortillas went down a storm, they were absolutely beautiful!!

So thank you again for everything that you did for us on our special day – you made it extra extra special!!
 
Lots of love

Professional…

Wedding Caterers: 5/5 stars by

“Originally I had an alternative caterer booked who let me down 5 months to the wedding so I was very apprehensive about finding and trusting another caterer, then along came Thomas.

From the moment I met Thomas he made me feel at ease, he was professional yet caring. I was totally up front with Thomas and said while food is your passion for me its a necessity for the wedding and while I’d like it to be beautiful in taste and appearance, I do have a budget to stick to.

Thomas listened carefully and advised tastefully on options within our budget, to me this was perfect as so many caterers fit you and your wedding around the menu but Thomas fits the menu around your wedding. He made me realise that my thought process around the food being a ‘necessity’ was actually not true it was such a huge part of the day. 7 months on and our guests still tell us how amazing the food was and how it perfectly portrayed our style for food.

On the days leading up to the wedding Thomas was a god send, I don’t know what I would have done without him. His calming and positive attitude enabled me to relax and know that it was all going to be fine. On the day itself Thomas and his team were fantastic, as soon as Ian and I arrived back from the church as husband and wife Thomas was there to greet us with his huge infectious smile.

The service was faultless and their ability to work around us was just perfect as our guests decided to party for hours which meant Tomas was a lot later leaving the venue than planned but not once did he complain.

Thank you to Thomas and his team for making our day so perfect. I’m sorry it has taken me 7 months to thank you properly.”

It made our day perfect…

On 30th May 2014 Thomas did the catering for our wedding and I can confidently say that he is the King of pie making!

Thomas’s passion for food, attention to detail and friendly manner is second to none and we can safely say that he produced the best pie and mash we have ever tasted, and it made our day perfect!

All our guests keep talking about since our wedding is the quality of Thomas’s pies. The father of the bride even said that, if he could, he would put in a weekly order!

Aside from his fantastic culinary skills, what really made Thomas stand apart from the other caterers we met was the way he listened carefully to all our ideas and produced a menu which captured exactly what we wanted and more.

He sourced local ingredients, personalised the pies with our initials which was a lovely touch, and spent a lot of time learning how to perfect honeycomb so that he could create the milk chocolate and honeycomb cheesecake dessert the groom had so desired.

We would not hesitate to recommend Thomas the Caterer to anyone who is in search of a caterer for their special event and we only hope that we have another occasion to use Thomas’s services again in the future. Thank you Thomas!
