Depending on the wedding reception sites, menus and clients' wishes rentals will vary greatly. Please consult with the caterer.
That also applies to staffing for the events so again, please consult with the caterer.
We will arrive at the site between one and three hours before the event begins, depending on the complexity of the menu and on-site kitchen facility.
Together with the signed contract a deposit of 20% of the Estimated Total is required to secure the date. The balance is due at the end of the event.
