About Me

Hi, I’m Eliese, owner and founder of Cat and Turtle Events

I have worked with many couples from across the globe. I understand that weddings can be complicated and people are busy – after all, most of us only ever do it once! Having been involved in countless weddings, small and intimate to large and flamboyant, my team and I are here to ensure that everything falls perfectly into place. Whether you need support in planning the entire day or just a couple of aspects, weddings are my passion, and you can rely on us to bring your visions to life and trust that the most special day of your life is in good hands.

The staff at Plane castle themselves provided an outstanding service, no task was too big or too small, they made you feel at complete ease and helped make our wedding day feel stress free and made it so incredibly perfect.

Cat and Turtle provided catering for our wedding afterparty. The food was absolutely delicious (we went for the pig package) with lots of leftovers for people to pick at through the day. The vegetarian option was very tasty as well. Eliese was an absolute pleasure to deal with in the run up to the wedding, nothing was too much to help with, which meant a lot during a stressful time. Highly recommend!

Eliese and her wonderful team catered for and coordinated our wedding in November. This included canapes, serving drinks and four courses – the main course was a hog roast. I cannot recommend them enough. The food was delicious, the service was fantastic and the whole process of planning and set up was a breeze. They made the whole thing easy and exciting. The guests loved the food so much, many of them requested business cards for future events. We had a number of vegetarians and vegans – all who commented on the quality of the food they received too. If you have a wedding or a big event coming up you will not be disappointed by Cat and Turtle!

Eliese, we can’t thank you enough for the work you did on our wedding day! Eliese, you were such a calming presence and I just felt like things were being taken care of without even having to worry about it. And James, the food. Wow! Guests were raving about it. Everything was perfect. You make a fantastic team and I will be recommending you to everyone I know. Thanks again, Rikki and Demi xx

They are absolutely amazing. Eliese led the Mystery Murder evening very subtly and the dinner was beautifully cooked and presented by James. The most memorable and delicious dinner and evening, delivered to a very high standard.

These guys catered our garden party two weeks ago for the day after our wedding and WOW!
Firstly; they came, set up, fed everyone, cleared up without any fuss. Just genuinely friendly, easy going guys doing a Great Job. That is a huge statement sometimes when dealing with vendors during a wedding. Secondly; the food. It was incredible!! Everyone was blown away. It was the perfect thing to warm everyone up, catered to a decent sized crowd of all ages, some vegetarians and some fussy eaters. Everyone was amazed. Thirdly; the price. We planned our wedding from Canada and got quotes from a few companies for our event and some were honestly a bit ridiculous. We began rethinking what we would be able to do with our budget and then I found these guys by chance.  I will be recommending to everyone!!! Thanks guys!

Thank you so much Eliese! The food you provided for our engagement party was delicious, and you were so professional and accommodating from our very first email. You made sure there were options for guests with a range of dietary requirements which was hugely appreciated! Would recommend anyone looking for a delicious hog roast and friendly service to book with Cat and Turtle.

Ruth Niamh, 2018, bride-to-be

Cannot recommend these guys enough, they worked tirelessly from early in the morning to late at night ensuring all our wedding guests were catered for. Their easy, friendly yet efficient manner won over everyone, especially in such demanding circumstances – running between kitchen and marquee in torrential rain, thunder and lightning at one point!! Would book them again and have no hesitation in recommending them. Thank you! x

Anne Madden, 2019, Bride

Had the Cat & Turtle to our day after wedding celebrations in July 2019 and they were fantastic. Great efficiency in the lead up discussions, very accommodating, and nothing was too much trouble. The new potatoes with vegan butter were a huge success and the hog-roast was delicious! Thank you to Elise and James.
