We recently had Occasional Occasions caterer our wedding and had the most spectacular experience. Ann and her staff were incredible from start to finish. From the moment we met with Ann, we knew she would be the best to have on our special day. We met with her several times before our wedding to discuss menu details, logistics and to do some food sampling and she exceeded our expectations every time we saw her. She was incredibly prepared with decor ideas, vendor suggestions and advice that made our day go incredibly smooth - no wedding planner necessary when you have someone like Ann on your side! On the day of, her staff was so attentive, constantly making sure that our guests were well taken care of. So many of our guests came up to us after dinner and could not stop talking about how good the food and service was. A huge thank you to Ann, Steve and their staff - along with 5 stars, we give them two very enthusiastic thumbs up!

I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful product you created for our gathering. Everything was excellent and enjoyed by all. The cake was spectacular – everyone commented on how moist and delicious it was, and it was truly beautiful.
Thank you again for making my sister in law’s 70th birthday a roaring success. She was truly thrilled.

So what can I say? Our Dad's memorial was indeed an afternoon to remember, in large part due to OO delicious and carefully thought out services. Our family is indebted to you and perpetually grateful for all you did to make this possible, from the mouthwatering-Jim-inspired menu to the well-thought out setting up of the space (using the hot-tub as the bar was brilliant!), the rentals of the two tents to provide a gathering space and shade, to the event planning including considering parking and what to do with the furry friends. This of course to add your delightful serving staff and the couldn't-be-more-perfect food, from the prawns to the quiches to ever-popular sliders to the creme brûlée inspired bites and chocolate surprises and freezies for the kids. As Dad would have said: "you think of everything!" and "what would we have done without you?!"
Our sincerest and deeply-felt gratitude to you and your team. You are truly a gem of a caterer and we will certainly think of you first if ever considering a caterer or need to make a recommendation to anyone seeking one that will take everything above and beyond. Thank you thank you and thank you again.
Warmly and sincerely,
Johanna Osbourne for Jim's family
Dear Ann and Steve,
We want to thank you so much for the beautiful delicious food you created for the wedding. Everything was perfect and stress-free. We had many compliments and raves about the food. The Duck was a huge hit in particular and was also our personal favourite. Thanks you so much!

A thousand "thank yous" to you, Chloe and Hanna. What a terrific team you are! Always so calm and composed even in the face of chaos!

Occasional Occasions exceeded our expectations ! Ann was so easy to work with, she had great ideas and delivered what she promised ! It was absolutely the best catered meal we have ever had and we are so happy we called Ann!
We so appreciate all you did in making the Garden Party such a success. Your menu has received outstanding reviews and I know you will hear from some of them regarding their future events.
Again our thanks,

Thank you again for agreeing to do such a small wedding dinner, and then putting your heart into it. The food was all so fresh and delicately prepared, and each flavour popped even more than the last. We knew you were creative and that the meal would be an extravaganza, but weren’t quite prepared for the genius you showed. Your team also provided impeccable service worthy of the finest restaurant. The meal was a dream we will never forget!
In gratitude and fond affection,

Dear Ann, Steve, and staff,
Thank you so much for your enormous contribution to the success of Michael and Amanda’s wedding. From the first phone call to the last meeting, your helpful guidance and professional approach were always appreciated. The food was not only delicious, but presented beautifully. Your staff deserves great credit and also compliments. Steve was marvelous before, during, and after the event as were you Ann! I can’t thank you enough!
