Reception Catering Guelph, ON

ORYAN CATERING believes that with all there is to get ready for your special day, you don’t want to even THINK of what to eat. We’ll prepare the perfect menu for you, and on your day, the perfect meal. Our comprehensive schedule will ensure that all details are taken care of-none are too small for our watchful eye. From the menu choice, the booking of the hall, and even DJs and florists-we’ve got it covered.

Is your wedding to be ‘unconventional’? We can handle out of the ordinary requests. BBQ? Themed? On the water? At midnight? We can handle it. Just ask. All of our meals are peanut free, and if we don’t make it now, we can take your suggestions and run with them.

Whole menus can be created for your wedding, or any special event you may be involved in.
