'Having LFC cater our wedding was one of the easiest decisions we could have made. They were prompt, professional and knew their business inside and out. Their very first email answered every question we had and they had no qualms about catering a wedding in the middle of no where. They were always available via email and phone call and no amount of questions was ever too many, they were flexible in their approach and helpful to the very end.I would recommend them to anyone for any thing and look forward to working with them in the future!'

'Thank you to Laura and the team at Laissez-Faire for looking after our wedding.
In the lead up to the day no request was too big or too small.
Laura made so many great suggestions that made the day perfect.
She guided us through the whole decision making process with ease and really helped us personalise everything.
We were genuinely surprised by the huge level of generosity and value for money that Laissez-Faire showed us.
The food was outstanding and the service couldn't be faulted.
Your wedding day is such a whirlwind and your staff were also close at hand to provide a much needed glass of bubbles.
We received so many compliments from our guests on the first class food and service - we couldn't have been happier.
Thank you so much again.
Claire & Beau Egan.'

Some people thought the entrees were the end and were pleasantly surprised to see more food coming.
Fabulous quality some guests had never had food like that before at a wedding.

A guest who was vegetarian received a special entree we were happy about this.
Overall amazing feedback 😀'

'Laissez-faire is an OUTSTANDING catering company I would and will suggest to anyone requiring any form of catering for an event large or small.
There was never anything too big they couldn't find a solution for.
The food was some of the best I have tasted in my life.
Our venue didn't have a large kitchen however they served what I felt was award winning food to our 180 guests at our wedding.
The staff were so kind polite and diligent.
They made sure the finer details were looked after even if it wasn't part of their catering duties.
We LOVED having Laissez-faire cater our wedding and will definitely suggest to our friends to use them and we will surely have another event involving Laissez-faire! THANK YOU Laissez-faire for looking after us in such a calm joyful and professional manner!!'

'I was referred to Laissez Faire from Venuemob in Melbourne and have not used another caterer in Sydney since.
From the initial enquiry through to the post event billing everyone is incredibly knowledgeable super flexible and an absolute pleasure to deal with.
Having come from a catering and venues background it is hard to find a company that "does it all" in terms of providing not only amazing food and beverage + impeccable service but also and pays attention to the smaller details like setup requirements; crockery cutlery and linen.
Without fail every event that we have used Laissez Faire the customer feedback has been overwhelmingly positive...they rave about the food (and amount of it there is).
Based in Melbourne it is very reassuring to know that we have a supplier in Sydney that can we can rely upon to deliver high quality services consistently which is important as an extension of our brand.'
