'Food is symbolic of love when words are inadequate'

Celebrating love together with delicious food.

When you’re getting married, you want everything to be perfect. Someone to take the worry and stress away. We agree.

We have 25 years of experience planning and catering weddings. Best of all, our food is the star of the show, we make sure that your friends and family are well taken care of, creating a truly memorable experience for everyone.

We offer affordable wedding catering with our buffet and finger food packages.

You can also add-on pre-reception nibbles if you want your guests to have a bite to eat in between the ceremony and reception.

If you prefer a more sit down style wedding, we have a table-share add-on and the Grinners team will serve your chosen buffet to the centre of your tables.

~ Our greatest asset is our customers ~

We had Grinners cater our wedding of 90 in Feb and were so happy we made the decision to go with them.

They showed up on time and setup, served everyone, packed up leftovers and put in the kitchen and left without causing any disruptions whatsoever.

The food was fantastic, we have had so many people ask who we used and have complimented them on the food, and also the service.

100% would use these guys again and I will continue to recommend to family and friends.

We had grinners cater our wedding a couple of weeks ago and couldn't be happier. They had great packages available to choose from, supported us in the calculations of how much food we would need, always answering all our questions promptly and on the night everything ran smoothly and on time. We loved the food and so did our guests. Thank you chef Rocki, Louise and team grinners xx"
