List of Wedding Caterer Melbourne, Victoria
Most couples spend between $1,800 and $7,000 on catering. Most caterers will include alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages as part of their packages. The average cost per person for a wedding in the United States is $40 for a plated meal and $27 for a buffet. Adding an open bar typically ups the cost by $15 per person.
While all caterers have their own policies, a general rule of thumb is that, yes, there's probably a little more food on hand for extra guests if they show up — but not much. ... In fact, some caterers will even charge more than your per person charge for extras, as it places unplanned-for stress on staff.
Ideally, you should plan to start researching your wedding caterer between 10 and 12 months before your big day, with the goal of booking your caterer between six and eight months out. If you're planning your wedding on a more condensed timeline, a good rule of thumb is to book as soon as possible.
Catering assistants help provide nutritious, balanced and value-for-money meals to children every lunchtime under the direction of the head cook or catering manager. A catering assistant role can include: Planning menus, following guidelines on nutrition and healthy eating.
Caterers are known in the industry for serving large quantities of food but hiring a small of team dishwashers. This usually leaves dishwashers with the task of having a huge quantity of dishes to wash. Sometimes a large volume of dishes is best handled with a five-person staff rather than two people.

Going Gourmet Wedding Caterer Melbourne
“Catering By Chefs For People With Taste Buds”
A Melbourne based catering company creating sensational tasty experiences for people all over Victoria.
Founded in 2010, Going Gourmet has grown from a small team with one passionate chef, to a team of seventeen devoted chefs and many other hospitality professionals, including event managers.
“It’s all in our slogan – Catering by Chefs for people with taste buds” says Glenn Coleman, the founder and Managing Director of Going Gourmet. What does Glenn mean? Well I’m sure you have had catering before where it’s just frozen and thawed deep-fried items like spring rolls and wontons… Knowing that Melbourne’s clientele was over this sort of food, Glenn created a new fresh product offering that disrupted the catering industry. The new product offering included 50+ custom designed canapes and we, as a company and our clients accredit Going Gourmet’s success to this approach many years on.
What We Do
Since focusing the business on unique cocktail experiences, Going Gourmet spread its wings and now offers all styles of catering, including gourmet feasting, BBQ’s, sit-down meals and buffets. We pride ourselves on freshly made, tasty recipes, using local ingredients and understand that every event is unique, and special to each person who is organising it and that’s why we work so closely with you from start to finish.

We are backed up by quality resources, with commercial kitchens across 2 industrial factories, a fleet of 11 catering vans and local suppliers throughout Melbourne. Many of Going Gourmet’s chefs have bragging rights of working in Michelin Star restaurants from Melbourne to London and back. These same chefs are in the kitchen during the week preparing sensational food for your event and most of our 500 events per year require one or more chefs at the function itself.
Mission & Values
We are committed to providing impeccable service and only the freshest handmade dishes and canapés. To exceed your expectations and ensure that every event is executed with style and confidence. To be known as the brand of choice for gourmet catering, to deliver the ultimate experience no matter what or where.

With our diverse background, our team can cater for Weddings of 200+ guests down to intimate backyard get together’ s of 30 and even special intimate packages for private functions with less than 30 guests. We have found ourselves catering in a range of venues and locations from country side paddocks, refurbished wool sheds up to high rise apartments!
Across the years we have catered for large scale events such as the Australian Open and have secured our position in catering for events held at the iconic Luna Park. We also provide catering services to regular corporate clients, Toorongo River Chalets and own and operate the two beautiful wedding venues mentioned below in “Ventures”.
Working in such diverse locations and catering to a different clientele at every event has taught our team to be flexible, open and excited about every new situation that is presented to us and how to tailor our service to each special occasion.
Due to the diverse clientele and range of needs from Melbourne’s catering market, the passionate team behind Going Gourmet also operate two other catering brands under the one roof, as well as two venues – One on the Mornington Peninsula, called Baxter Barn and the other on the footsteps of the Yarra Valley, called The Little Vineyard.

Both of these brands offer simpler drop-off delivery style catering services with optional “heat & serve” staff, whereas Going Gourmet is our premium catering service where we come to your event fully equipped with chefs, wait staff and (optional) bar staff.
What Does The Future Hold?
We are proud of our vast range of gluten free options and we are ever expanding our vegan and vegetarian menus. Taste is what separates us from the rest and we challenge our chefs to make sure we are ahead of the rest, by pushing them to constantly create new dishes to entice our clients.
Our largest investment this year has been in the event/party hire services. We are trying to close the gap for you and make your event planning faster and easier by offering a range of equipment for hire. We will be at your event anyway, right? Take a look at a list of items we have for hire and we can also source and hire equipment upon request.
Venue acquisition is a key focal point for our management team. We look for wineries and venues who don’t want to employee their own chefs and run a full-time kitchen. We solve all their catering problems by offering a range of unique menus to offer to their client’s as well as solving food and staff sourcing matters. You can view some of these venue’s here and pleas get in touch if you have a property or venue and want to start a new venture or improve an existing venture.

A Country Affair Vintage Cafe and Bar - Wedding Caterer Melbourne
The Story of Wanda
The idea of starting a Vintage Caravan Bar evolved organically. I wanted to run my own business, had years of hospitality experience under my belt, and loved a good restoration project. So what better plan than to convert a vintage van into a retro café and bar?
In 2014, I started looking around for an old caravan with ‘good bones’. When I finally came across ‘Wanda’, I knew she was a gem just waiting to be restored to her original glory.
I snapped Wanda up the same day I saw her for sale. She was sitting in the front yard of an old caravan yard in Bendigo just begging for me to take her home. It was love at first sight.
The restoration of Wanda took us (aka myself, the hubby and my very talented handyman dad), around five months of solid work every single day. She was in worse shape than originally thought. All the timber was rotten and had to be replaced. And being 60 years old, there was not a straight line in the whole van!
After long toil and late nights, she made her official debut in February 2015 and we haven’t looked back since. Wanda is renowned for serving up great coffee, espresso martinis, Pimms cocktails, homemade ice-cream and sweet treats at all sorts of functions throughout Victoria – from weddings to corporate do’s and everything in between.

How to Choose a Wedding Caterer
Your wedding reception is a major part of your wedding. It’s the “social” part of the day, and your guests will be looking forward to the food, alcohol, and dancing. That is why choosing the right wedding caterer is so important. There are two things your guests will remember: the quality of the food and the service. You want both to be impeccable at a catering price that fits your budget.
A good and experienced wedding caterers can ensure that everyone has the best possible time at your wedding reception. And you want to get the most for your money. When you find a wedding caterer with whom you “click,” the event is bound to be a huge success.
When hiring your wedding caterer, channel your inner Trump and negotiate yourself the best possible deal. Remember that you are doing the hiring and you are the boss.

Useful Tips for Picking the Perfect Wedding Caterer
Know your budget.
When it comes to wedding expenses, catering is often the largest expense (45-50% of most wedding budgets go towards catering and the reception). Caterers vary in type of food and style, so carefully select your caterer. Discuss your budget, the style of reception you would like (i.e. buffet, food stations, sit-down dinner, or cocktail reception), and the types of food that you want to serve.
Don’t even consider interviewing a wedding caterer before you have your budget and guest list in place. This will allow your candidates to offer you a number of per-plate options within your price range. You should also know the type of wedding catering you need. Seated versus buffet will affect the price of the meal.
If you are unsure, the caterer can provide options for both. Discuss your dream wedding and see what suggestions he or she is able to make. A good wedding caterer will know how to best turn your random thoughts into a dream event.
Shop and Compare
Every wedding caterer will promise the best food. While you will be judging the food at a tasting before making a final hire, there are other things to look for in a catering company. Regardless of how well-recommended the wedding caterer, or how beautiful their website, you should interview at least three to four candidates. Be very sure to compare specifics.
Don’t forget about dinnerware or china!
Be sure to look into the dinnerware and china when hiring your caterer. Some caterers include the dinnerware in their price, but this may mean that it isn’t of the best quality—it could be damaged, scratched, or worn out. So it is good to ask to see samples to make sure that the place settings meet your standards and match the rest of your décor.
Schedule a Tasting
A tasting not only allows you to taste the food and find the best options for your event but it also allows you to meet in person with the caterer. Scheduling a tasting allows you to see the service you can expect at your wedding, customize the menu for your special day, and build a relationship with your caterer. Plus, who doesn’t love sampling delicious food?
Service is an important factor when choosing your caterer.
Be sure to ask about the ratio of servers to guests. Obviously, this can vary depending on the type of reception you have (seated dinner versus a buffet). A good rule of thumb to remember is to have one server for every eight to ten guests.
Caterers may include decorations in their price
So be sure to ask what (if any) are provided. Also, request pictures of their previous table displays. Some caterers that do buffets or food stations will include floral arrangements and other centrepiece decorations. As you get a better idea of your wedding theme and style, talk to your caterer about your color concept so that all their decorations and floral arrangements will coordinate with your vision.
