Fran and her team were absolutely amazing. We cannot recommend them enough. From the whole planning process to enjoying the food on the day everything was perfect and ran so smoothly! The food was just divine. We chose canapés, the sharing feast and three petite desserts. The bridal basket was such a special touch and it was amazing to see how well they catered for our guests with dietary needs, as well as the children. We had so many compliments from our guests and there was more than enough food to go around! They even packaged the leftovers up for us to enjoy the next day (with the cutest message to us on the box). Fran is a dream to work with and her team are an amazing bunch of people who made our day that much more special with their smiley faces. We hope we get to eat their incredible food again, if you are searching for the perfect caterer, honestly look no further!!

Where do I begin… Fran and the team at Devour Catering are AMAZING! You cannot go wrong with this incredible catering company. Fran is so lovely, easy to talk to, and extremely organised - which makes the wedding process that much easier. The food at our wedding was INCREDIBLE! Our guests are still raving about it. We opted for canapés, a shared feast style main and a dessert table of petit desserts - everything was delicious! Our venue was not ideal for catering to say the least, so Fran did an amazing job to make it work and deliver beautiful food. Devour went above and beyond for our wedding, including serving delicious food to our guests with dietary requirements (vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, you name it). HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! xx

Fran and the team were outstanding! Their service was excellent and the food was to die for. We were excited for our canapés and our menu in which we were not disappointed. Fran is so lovely and easy to work with, she had no troubles working around any dietary issues and is very knowledgable about her foods. All our guests raved about the food quality, presentation and the quantity brought out, no one went hungry to say the least. We highly recommend Devour, they are really exceptional!!
Thank you to Fran for a seamless service and to the team for tying it all together!

Absolutely beautiful food and amazing service from Devour. Gran was fantastic to deal with, super easy and we had numerous comments on how great the food was! The staff were so friendly and really made some of our guests night! Would highly recommend using Devour!

We selected Devor Catering to cater our wedding because of their high recommendations and style of food. Food which we love, and also served the same way we serve guests when they come to our house for a meal.
Fran could not have been more helpful. We found her to be one of the best vendors we used for our entire wedding. Her communication, response time and attention to detail were excellent.
The food was amazing. Each dish flavoursome and perfectly cooked. We asked Fran to make our entire wedding feast Gluten free. Dairy free guests were catered to individually as well.
Seriously, we cannot fault Fran and her team and would recommend her to anyone who asked. My new wife and I have dined out a lot, the food Fran served would stand next to many top restaurants we have eaten at in Australia.
Thanks so much to you and your team

I simply cannot thank Fran and Devour Catering enough! Absolutely everything about working with Devour for our wedding exceeded our expectations - we were blown away! Fran was so helpful and supportive during the planning process and the food and service was INCREDIBLE on the day. Our guests have been raving about how delicious and plentiful the food was and couldn’t believe that they got to have chicken, salmon AND lamb alongside the selection of beautiful salads we chose for our family style banquet. The Devour staff were friendly and helpful and no request was too much trouble on the day. Thank you so, so much to Fran and the team - you truly made our wedding day memorable, especially considering food was one of the parts of our wedding we really wanted to be special. I would definitely recommend working with Devour to any future brides and grooms - we wouldn’t change a thing!

There have been many enthusiastically positive comments from our guests also. The food was absolutely devine, served beautifully, and the care and service was outstanding.
We were in very good hands from the moment we first made contact with Fran when planning our special day. Her professionalism, care and warmth have made it all so easy and positive.
Every aspect of Devour Catering is top class… communication, effortless planning, delicious food and presentation, thoughtful, respectful and friendly staff.
We highly recommend Fran and her team.

Nadine was wonderful to work with and was incredibly accommodating with the dietary requirements we had to cater for. Her guidance and advice was fantastic and the food was outstanding! Family and friends are still talking about it months later.
So thrilled we got to work with Nadine and her team who were absolutely brilliant on the day.
Wedding Date: March 19, 2016
Nadine was great to deal with, so easy. Our wedding was only 35 people and it was great that she could accommodate our small event.
I had so many great compliments on the food. The biggest compliment was one of my foodie friends wanting to find out the caterer so they could recommend them for other events in the area.
The food was amazing. My only regret was that I didn’t really get a chance to eat very much.

Devour catered our wedding at Ataahua and they were absolutely fabulous. All of our guests raved about the food. People always remember what the food was like at a wedding, so it meant a lot to us that our guests will have good memories of the food at ours.
It was presented beautifully and everything was so fresh and full of flavour. We loved the healthy but super tasty options they had to offer.
Nadine was so easy to deal with, and her and her team were so friendly and accommodating on the day. They even packed away all the leftovers for us to take home!
Devour completely exceeded our expectations and we’d highly recommend them to anyone interested in catering a special event, they will not disappoint.

Devour catered our wedding at L’Orangerie recently and I can honestly say the food was incredible. We had so many guests compliment us on the food, they were pretty much hunting the wait staff down to get their hands on more of the delicious canapes. Nadine was so helpful and easy to communicate with, it all went so smoothly. I couldn’t recommend Nadine and the team highly enough.
Wedding Date: March 12, 2016
Nadine and her team catered our wedding at Ataahua in Tauranga in February. Our guests absolutely raved about the quality of the food - very gourmet and definitely not just rip open a bag of lettuce! Impeccable presentation and service was great.
Nadine was incredibly easy to communicate with and accommodated a wide range of dietary requirements. The vegan guests loved the tempeh dish! Great value for money. Absolutely 10/10 catering!
Wedding Date: February 27, 2016
Devour did a brilliant job catering for our wedding. The dishes were all restaurant quality and everybody has raved about how beautiful the food tasted and how amazing the service was. Devour was able to cater for gluten and dairy free requirements and for our vegetarian guests. We couldn’t have been happier with any aspect of the catering and will definitely recommend Nadine, and her team, in future.
Wedding Date: February 20, 2016
Nadine and the Devour team were amazing - from the prompt email replies and suggestions for the menu, to the friendly, efficient and attentive staff on the day we couldn’t have asked for a better caterer for our wedding.
We had so many comments from our guests on how delicious the food was, it really was enjoyed by all and they had no trouble in catering for multiple gluten free guests.
A huge thanks to Devour in helping make our day so special, we would definitely recommend them to anyone getting married in the Tauranga area.

Nadine was really awesome when it came to choosing a menu and customising it just for us.
The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. It really made our day.
We had people at our wedding with all kinds of food allergies: gluten, tomato, and potato free and vegetarian. Nadine was so accommodating with all of it and it was no problem to adjust the menu items for those people. Even when I ate the bride’s gluten free bridal-basket by mistake Nadine had more sorted for her straight away and they even bought it down to where we were getting our photos taken.
Everyone commented on how amazing our food was and we were really impressed. I’ve already recommended Devour Catering to all our friends.
Wedding Date: January 23, 2016
Nadine and the team at Devour were absolutely amazing! Not only was the food delicious, they went above and beyond the call of duty when we were faced with rain at our wedding venue (at the Old Forest School). They changed where dinner was being served to accommodate for the weather and made it possible to serve all our guests while keeping them dry. Friendly, professional and stress free. Nothing seemed to bother them at all on the day. The food was loved by everyone and Nadine’s nothing is a bother approach made it the best day. Thank you so much Devour!!

Planning a wedding from Sydney meant that I relied heavily on online reviews to choose vendors and was not sure what I was going to get until the big day. I am so happy I chose Devour catering. The food was absolutely incredible - all our family and friends were raving about it. Not only did it taste amazing, it also looked incredible. Nadine and her staff were very helpful and everything went really smoothly on the day. I highly recommend Devour Catering. Thank you Nadine and your team for helping make our day that much more special and stress free.
Wedding Date: December 5, 2015
As I was planning my wedding from Sydney originally, I chose Devour solely on Nadine being highly recommended, I had no pre-wedding samples or anything so I trusted the recommendation.
Nadine was super quick with email response and answering any of my silly questions or constant “bridal” change of mind.
Choosing our menu was TOUGH! My husband and I struggled as we were SO spoilt for choice, we had to take the extras that were offered as I mouths were drooling over all the options.
On the day of our wedding, yes everyone had told me “oh you won’t eat, you will be too wound up on the day to eat, and you will be worried about your dress”, HA! As soon as the salmon turned up in front of me there was no way I wasn’t eating…the food was INCREDIBLE! We had so many comments about the food, I think we heard more about the food than anything else the next day.
I would highly recommend Devour Catering to everyone.
Thank you so much Nadine x

As we were organising our wedding from overseas, we really wanted to find a caterer that was super organised as well as having exceptional food – the food being one of the most important parts of our wedding for us.
Our venue, Ataahua Garden, suggested we go with Devour Catering and we were not disappointed.
Nadine was very helpful and accommodating throughout the planning process. Even though most of our correspondence was via email, everything went to plan and was hassle free to arrange.
The staff on the day were attentive, helpful and the food was amazing. We chose the family style serving format and from the canapés to the mains and then the desert, everything was delicious and presented well. I would highly recommend the salt and pepper squid canapé and salmon as a main!
We also had many comments from our guests throughout the night telling us how amazing the food was – a testament to the Devour team.
Thanks again to the Devour team!

We received so many comments throughout the night from our guests about how great the food was and how friendly the staff were.
I would highly reccommend Devour catering to anyone.
