Wedding at woollaston

Thank you so much for doing such an amazing job catering for us! The food was beautiful – it looked and tasted fantastic – I really enjoyed it and so many of the guests have commented on it. You also had everything so meticulously organised at the reception. My sister was really appreciative too as she told me you also took care of her little boy which was so thoughtful. I will definitely recommend you to anyone I hear of around Nelson who needs a caterer.

25th wedding anniversary

Kristin catered for our 25th wedding anniversary. Planning from day one was fun helped by Kristin's cheerfully relaxed, warm and efficient manner. With her healthy fresh food principles and caring professionalism, planning couldn't have been easier. Kristin's liaison with Hirepool and the Dream Team (served drinks, canapés and dinner) also helped for problem-free planning. Kristin effortlessly made herself at home in our kitchen allowing us to enjoy the evening without interruption. I wouldn't have known anyone had used the kitchen after she departed. Food was fresh, colourful, tasty and amazingly, quantities were spot on!! Kristin and her team were discreetly attentive to all 70 guests whilst maintaining big smiles and a friendly manner throughout.

Catharine Franks

wedding at awaroa beach

Kristin catered for our daughter’s wedding at our Awaroa beach in the Abel Tasman National Park .She accepted the challenges willingly and cheerfully of catering for 110 guests in a barn next to the marquee with no electricity! Kristin produced the most delicious canapés and three course dinner, beautifully presented and served. She made a special day even more joyful with her cheerfulness and desire to do everything well. Kristin Harrison Catering is highly recommended.

I have attended or hosted many functions that Kristin Harrison has catered - from 'cocktail hour' canapés through buffet wedding breakfasts to intimate dinners for VIP guests and formal banquets.  Often delighted and never disappointed by her food and its presentation, I have always been impressed by  Kristin's unflappable good humour and her courteous yet friendly service.  She sets high standards - and adheres to them.

Shasta and Guards Wedding

at Neudorf Vineyard

Thank you for all your efforts and great organizational skills used when you catered for our daughter's wedding. You made many helpful suggestions and steered me towards some new ideas. I felt you listened to our desires and included them in the final plans. On the day you had everything ready to go with a minimum of hassle. The table settings were lovely with the white linen cloths, the vintage china and glasses. My punch recipe tasted delicious and looked great in the old fashioned punch glasses. Your touch of mint added to the effect. The food was beautifully arranged on tiered plates, with a good mixture of colour and tastes. You ensured that all guests had food offered to them through out the day, even seeing that those playing petanque in the far field had food brought over to them. We had a wonderful day and your preparations played an important role in the smooth running of the event.

Photo by Natalie TowlerThank you Kristin for the amazing services provided. One of the wishes for our day was to enjoy good food and this was certainly fulfilled. So many of our guest commented on the exceptional taste and quality of the food and we wholeheartedly agree. We were blown away at how flexible you were, changing the menu as we requested and enabling us to have a banquet style dinner which made the evening even more special. We can't thank you enough for ensuring the food was local, fresh, free range produce which gave us piece of mind as vegetarian's. Your personable way of ensuring everything was running smoothly on the night was appreciated as was your easy nature during the lead up to the wedding. We would not hesitate to recommended you or enlist your help again in the future.
