I would love to try one of your famous platters, but I am not part of a pair. I am backpacking and therefore do not know any other person in Cairns. Does anyone want to be my other half of the two minimum?!

A recent testimonial from a happy bride :) β€œI had heard wonderful things about Ochre Catering and I was impressed by their food at a couple of events I attended that they had catered for, so when it came time to secure a caterer for my wedding I knew that I wanted Ochre. Obviously wanting to make sure there wasn’t anything better out there I had sourced a few quotes and assistance from other companies, but when it came down to it, the service and food offered by Ochre was definitely the best value of all of the places I had contacted. Carly was an absolute dream through-out the whole process, assisting me with the whole package I required due to our venue being The Sugar Wharf, Port Douglas. Nothing was too much hassle for Carly and when it poured with rain the day before my wedding and we had to change our game plan to an inside function instead of out on the deck I knew I could trust Carly to just do whatever had to be done. I left everything in her capable hands and I could not have been happier, in fact I was speechless at how she had transformed the venue. I had so much positive feedback after the wedding from our guests about how delicious the food was and how impressed everyone was with the service and the venue overall. I cannot thank Ochre Catering enough for the absolutely outstanding job they did for us. Carly and the team were all absolute gems and if I could do it all over again they would be the definitely be the ones I would call upon” We love what we do here at Ochre.. :) Thank you for the very kind words Tamara, it was an absolute pleasure making your special day a dream come true!
