Wedding Canapes, Seated Buffet Dinner & Dessert for 70 guests at Akaroa Yacht Club on 25 March 2017

Nicky and her team are fantastic! From start to finish they were super helpful, warm and friendly whilst always professional. Nothing was too difficult and any unexpected last minute changes and requests were accommodated with a "no hassle, can do" approach.

The quality of food was remarked upon by many of our guests and was not compromised by our slightly awkward selection of venue!

We are certainly recommending Verve to our friends who plan to get married or wish to have a special occasion catered for in a sustainably delicious way!

Thank you fabulous Nicky and your team. Wishing you all the very best with future ventures!

Stay well and super enthused 😊

Three course Wedding Breakfast for 90 guests at Kaikoura on 4th February 2017

Hi Nicky and Steve,

Things are finally returning to something closer to the new normal here so it is time to catch up on a few things.  Head of the list is to send you guys a note.

Thank you so much for helping to make Pip and Ryans wedding the very special day it was.

We were absolutely thrilled with the wedding catering, venison (no easy task for deer farmers who are very fussy) and blue cod what an outstanding job, together with the sides and other courses WOW.

The compliments we have had from our guests say it all. You and your staff were so accommodating, professional and incredibly helpful and made sure everything went so smoothly.

‘Verve’ has been in many conversations ever since.

Thanks again so much for all your effort.

Best Wishes Tina
