From: Orlaith and Michaels Wedding - Great Barrier Island (2005)
We receive many
letters of commendation. For your reference, a few of these are
included in this site so you can see what our client's think of
our food, service, and level of professionalism.
When we initally visited the barrier with a view to getting married over there, I guess we were a bit nervous about the quality or the standard of service and food that we could expect given that we were having the wedding on the Barrier. From the start, Dave made us feel that he could help us achieve what we wanted which was very reassuring. He was able to give us loads of practical advice about what could be served given the time of year and the location. We really saw nothing of the organising that must have gone on behind the scenes to order and prepare food for 80 people and to organise waiting staff. It was so professionally managed so that all we saw were the results which were far beyond what we ever would have expected.
We had looked around Auckland and Sydney at venues and had attended other weddings before ours, but when we compare the quality presented by Dave and the team, it truely was exceptional. We had it in our heads that we'd cope with whatever the team could pull together given the resources and the location, but honestly, the standard was higher (and more reasonably priced!) than any equivalent caterer could have provided. We have been inundated with e mails and letters from friends and family who visited from overseas about how delicious the meal was on the night.
We put the success of the evening down the work that Dave and our co ordinators did behind the scenes to run things smoothly and efficiently. We would have no hesitation in recommending island indulgence as a caterer for any special event.
.....if you would like to anyone to get in touch with us personally as a reference, please feel free to give them out our e mail addresses.
Hope you are well and that business is booming!
