Possible Charges + Terms & Conditions To Note
While the following details are covered in our terms and conditions, we like to draw particular attention to these items:
Kitchen facilities: please ensure you are aware of our minimum kitchen requirements. We can provide a full satellite kitchen if required, at an additional cost.
Surcharges: charges apply for public holidays and out-of-town events.
Service time: staffing charges apply if total service time (including set up and pack down) for your function exceeds 5 hours.
Loss/Damage To Hire Equipment: will be billed to the client post-event if necessary.
Waste Removal: aside from kitchen waste, disposal of all other rubbish is the responsibility of the client.

Food For Thought
With a number of large events under our belt, we’ve noticed a few extra things you may like to consider when planning your special occasion.
Alcoholic Beverages & Ice: We suggest using a supplier who offers a "cellar return" service so that you can over-order and then return any unopened beverages after your event. Swanbourne Cellars offer this service (so long as labels are intact and the product can be resold), and can also assist with advice on beverage and ice quantities, as well as delivery and collection. They can be contacted on email@example.com or 9384 2111.
Water: It may seem an obvious one, but it can be overlooked! With the focus on beer and wine, it’s easy to forget that guests will also require water. Please ensure you provide either bottled water, or enough glassware, jugs, and access to fresh drinking water for your guests.
Refrigeration: If you’re providing your own drinks, you’ll need to make sure your chosen venue has sufficient refrigeration facilities. If not, you may need to consider hiring a mobile coolroom. We recommend Auswest Coolroom Hire. They can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0414 405 039.
Rain Contingency: It’s always a good idea to consider what would need to change (if anything) in the event of bad weather, and have a plan in place.
Recommended Suppliers: Through our work in the events industry, we have worked with a number of outstanding professionals whose details we are more than happy to share. These include event stylists & planners, photographers, celebrants, florists and wedding cake specialists. Please be in touch for further information.
