6th February 2013 Moveable Feasts were the catering company chosen for our wedding day, following a successful tasting experience.
However, at very short notice before our wedding day we were informed that both the Chef and General Manager had been replaced by new staff.
Please NOTE: securing the caterers so far in advance, is a huge risk as we experienced first hand. I would urge all of you who are planning a wedding to ask the caterers to ensure that the key personnel you originally deal with when booking your date are 100% committed to you throughout your wedding journey. Especially key personnel such as the general managers,chefs etc... who understand your exact requirements.
Moveable feasts did not do this. Both the newly employed Chef and General Manager were either not duly informed, trained and/or had the menu communicated to them correctly. this is a clear lack of competency on behalf of Moveable feats. The result - a very EXPENSIVE substandard wedding meal!! A sad sad experience as we did not receive the wedding meal in which we had planned for the entire year.
On our part we took the catering very seriously even flying half way across the world for a tasting and just expected better service and commitment to the most special day of our lives!
Apologies to all our overseas guests for experiencing such a substandard introduction to the Kiwi Cuisine. I hope this experience did not last for too long and that they enjoyed some good quality kiwi cuisine further along the duration of their stay in NZ.
This catering company has completely overlooked the negative experience we had and we are astonished that this kind of customer service is available in NZ.
