Catering by The Farm Cafe is not only situated at a gorgeous rustic city farm, they also cater weddings and events all over Victoria spoiling your guests with lavish food with grazing tables, cocktail style or shared dining. Dedicated event planners from the start of planning to the end of your wedding day will ensure that everything is looked after – from florists, furniture hire, menu choice, making sure that everything runs smoothly for you. Styling your wedding with access to the best suppliers, the team works with many venues around Victoria such as Glasshaus, Noisy Ritual and many more providing the most luscious of food that is a must for any wedding. They also hold many of their events at the Collingwood Children’s Farm with their Barn being a highlight and The Farm Cafe and The Stables Paddock giving you even more options such as an outdoor wedding with marquee.

We asked Lauren of Catering by The Farm Cafe five questions in five minutes:

Weddings are the best to work on because….

You get to witness so many magical moments and see the wedding couple have the best day of their life.

What is something people would be surprised to know about your job or something that challenges you about your job?

A lot of people don’t realise how many weddings the Farm Cafe have been involved with. We create weddings both at the Collingwood Children’s Farm and at offsite venues. We have been involved with hundreds of weddings over the past 10+ years.

What is it about the creative process that you most enjoy?

There are always new trends popping up and nothing seems to be off limits when it comes to creating a stunning event. We love to see local produce play a big role in creating weddings. From gourmet local food produce and free range meat through to local flower farms and native floral installations. Supporting locals is a large part of who we are.

What are you hilariously bad at?

We are extremely bad at sitting still! Our whole team is always on the go either working on a new project, developing our offering, hosting an event or working on our creativity. It is very rare to find us sitting in the one spot for longer than 10 minutes!

When you were small what did you dream of being and where have those dreams taken you?

I never knew exactly what I wanted to be. I just knew that I didn’t want to sit at a desk all day long and that I needed to have some form of creativity in my life.
