  1. I recently got married at Kirkbride in Callan Park, Rozelle. We used Woolcott and wright Catering and they were amazing! The food was terrific and so special. the service staff were amazing but the food was the standard, everyone is still talking about the smoked quail crostini and scallop and snapper sashimi!

  2. Thanks for sharing this great article. It could help me and my soon to be bride to choose among these catering services. I’m sure that all of these catering services served amazingly delicious foods, and a great service of the crew, but what we consider is the budget, because we’re budgeting our savings that’s why we are looking for a lower rate of catering service. Thanks again for sharing.
