Why Pure Catering Brisbane?
A professional Caterer is more that simply a business that provides food. Brisbane caterers provide experience, security, knowledge, expertise and the understanding that every situation that might arise is going to be handled with skill and attention to detail.
I don’t want to pick on other food establishments who provide some different types of caterers services. I’m sure some of the thousands, if not millions of café’s, coffee shops, deli’s, pizza restaurants, takeaways, mum and pop operations and fish and chip shops who provide services to bolster their weekly income do quite a good job. However, to get the job done properly and safely, the best option is to engage a professional Catering company.
We are a “one-stop-shop” Company!
Pure can provide you with everything you will need for your next event including hire of marquees, chairs, stages, tables, exhibition and catering equipment and more. Pure Catering Brisbane work with the most innovative and reliable companies with over 30 years of experience in the marquee and equipment hire industry.
Pure Catering Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast’s food comes from local, free range and/or organic suppliers or producers wherever possible.
Our meat comes from our local butcher, who is committed to the sustainable way of life. Our chickens come from Wolvi on the Sunshine Coast and are free range. Our pork and beef is also free range and ethically treated.
Pure are one of the very first caterers in Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast to adopt these sustainable and ethical practices.

Pure Catering Brisbane
The days of traditional Brisbane catering wedding receptions are long gone. Many couples choose to have quirky, personalised ceremonies rather than the traditional evening affair. Pure Catering Brisbane does not have to be a five-course, formal dining event: there are a number of different dining styles that can be tailored to suit every couple’s vision – and budget.
A breakfast time or brunch reception tends to suit couples who want to keep their wedding on a low-key level. A Pure Catering Brisbane breakfast or brunch reception ideally follows a 9.00 or 10.00am wedding ceremony. A mid-morning reception does not have to include only breakfast foods: there are a number of light, tasty dishes that you can serve along with a selection of teas, coffees, or even champagne.
- Toasted croissants with a selection of different sweet or savoury spreads
- A seasonal fresh fruit platter
- Specialty sausages, Canadian bacon, and smoked salmon on fresh bread or bagels
- A high tea styled spread: fresh-baked scones, frosted cakes, and small, savoury sandwiches
You might choose to have a traditional champagne toast or serve early-morning cocktails such as Mimosas and Bloody Marys.
Holding a mid-morning Pure Catering Brisbane reception is in keeping with a narrow budget and also makes for a casual, intimate atmosphere. Bear in mind that an early reception is likely to eliminate dancing. Any late sleepers on your guest list might not appreciate the early start!
Lunchtime Brisbane Reception
When using Pure Catering Brisbane, a luncheon is the perfect combination of quality and simplicity. The meals served at a luncheon are more substantial than those of a morning or afternoon tea reception, and the reception tends to run for longer as guests take their time eating, drinking, and socialising. A luncheon reception tends to take place between 12.00 and 2.00pm.
There are a range of suitable luncheon options, including:
- A variety of fresh, seasonal salads
- A range of tart and creamy pasta dishes
- Cold cuts and crusty bread with sides of salad
- A sizzling barbeque
You would serve a range of light refreshments: seasonal cocktails and a range of wine and beers, and perhaps flavoured mineral water or lemonade for the non-drinking guests.
A lunchtime reception is a less expensive option that a dinnertime affair and can make for a perfect outdoor reception in the warmer months.
Afternoon Tea and High Tea Catering
If you’re Pure Catering Brisbane in Brisbane, an afternoon tea is a classy yet inexpensive option for couples working with a tight budget. This reception would be perfectly set in a rambling botanical garden or on the open terrace of a picturesque dining hall.
You might choose to serve:
- A high tea with fresh-baked scones, frosted cakes, biscuits, and savoury sandwiches or pastries
- A seasonal fresh fruit platter
- An array of delicately iced cupcakes
- You could also include a wedding cake
Refresh your guests with a range of exotic teas and coffees, as well as a cold, sweet champagne punch.
An afternoon reception leaves you plenty of room for creativity: the setting and décor, in particular, allow you to think outside of the box. An afternoon tea, much like a morning tea, tends to run for less time and your guests will be less inclined to dance or make speeches.
Dessert Only Reception
This is a reception than can, technically, be held at any time of the day. Whether in the mid-morning, afternoon, or evening, this sweet-tooth reception is ideal for any couple, whether they are working on a budget or on a free reign.
For a dessert only reception, you could serve:
- Your wedding cake
- A wide range of rich, decadent desserts
- A chocolate fountain or bowls of chocolate fondue with fruit and other sweets for dipping
- A lollie buffet
You could serve a rich, earthy coffee to counteract the sweetness of your food, or a range of sugary cocktails to compliment it. You might also include champagne and dessert wines.
This type of reception tends to be inexpensive and has the potential for true sophistication. However, be sure to tell your guests that your reception will not include a full meal.
Evening Buffet Catering
A buffet is the perfect option for a couple wanting a casual, relaxing reception. Buffets tend to revolve guests from table to table, encouraging conversation and socialisation. You could serve a huge range of different dishes in your buffet, including:
- Hot and cold seafood with a range of crisp, fresh salads
- A selection of hot meats: pork, chicken, beef, and lamb, as well as a variety of complimentary salads
- A culinary theme, such as an international cuisine: Indian, Mexican, and Asian are all fantastic cuisines for buffet-style dining
Buffets ensure that there is a little of something for every guest. If you are planning a sophisticated and elegant affair, a buffet might not be your preferred option. Buffets also tend to be less expensive than sit-down dinners
Seated Fine Dining Catering
A sit-down meal is an elegant, traditional reception, generally held in the evening. Your selection of meals will vary on the theme of your wedding, as well as your personal preferences. You could serve alternating dishes, such as a chicken and a beef dish, as your main course.
Sit-down dinners generally include:
- An entree
- A main meat course with a variety of side dishes
- A dessert and a serving of wedding cake
Seated dinners lend an air of elegance to any reception: you can choose dishes that will add to the sophisticated atmosphere. Your guests will generally finish their meals quickly, leaving plenty of time for speeches and dancing afterward.
Bear in mind that seated dinners are a more expensive option for your reception. Similarly, your guests will have a smaller selection of food to choose from.
Station Dining and Noodle Box Catering
Modern receptions have seen the rise of food stations at functions. Similar to buffet-style dining, food stations include a range of different tables placed throughout the dining area, each holding a different cuisine.
You can serve almost anything at your food stations! Select a few of your favourites, or a range of dishes that signify something to you both as a couple.
Station dining is a fun, casual dining affair that provides your guests with a wide variety of dishes to choose from. This style of dining also allows for creativity and individuality. However, dining stations tend to be expensive to arrange.
I would like to thank Pure Catering for your wonderful service. The residents had nothing but praise for the staff and the food quality and presentation. The staff were very professional and adapted very well to a few detours from the run sheet that were not planned. Very impressed.
We would not hesitate in using Pure Catering again nor would we hesitate in recommending your service.
I would recommend your services to anyone
Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did at our wedding on 2nd November. Everyone commented on how fantastic the food and service was and we really appreciated your professionalism and easy going manner which helped make the day run smoothly.
Thanks also for the calamari and sandwiches to keep us going while we were getting our photos done and for putting some food away for us. Unfortunately, the 'locust' children managed to make short work of all of this but luckily they left the pate alone which we got to enjoy and divided up the next day.
I would recommend your services to anyone who enquired and thanks again for a job well done. : )
What a wonderful business!
I just wanted to send through a massive thankyou to you and to the staff who catered our wedding over the weekend. I didn't have to worry about a thing. I didn't even notice the team was there, only that food started coming out on time, and that after i had left for photos there had been a plate of canapes saved for my husband and I - I was beyond impressed and thankful as we were starving! Thankyou for always answering my emails and being so helpful through the planning process. What a wonderful business!
