DiscoverOur Story

South Coast Parties was born from a love of parties, entertaining and great food.

Planning events was our background, which evolved into doing the catering too and, judging by our testimonials, we’re pretty good at it! We’ve built a great team and recently welcomed our fabulous new Chef, Marcus, on board. He brings with him a wealth of experience along with a passion about baking and all things cakes.



Our menus are a guide of what is available, along with a guide price. However, we love talking to our clients to find out what they are looking for and then creating a menu to suit the occasion and budget. Our Chef Marcus has some great ideas for the 2019 season.

  • Right from the very start, all the way through to the wedding, Teresa and her brilliant team made us feel like we were in safe hands to help plan our big day. Early on we had a pre-contract tasting where Teresa cooked up some delectable samples for us at her kitchen. Right through the process, Teresa was flexible and went out of her way to make a menu to our exacting tastes. She even attempted some dishes she’d never tried before like poutine! On the big day, the food was excellent. The canapés went down a treat, our sharing platter starter was a great success, the mains were tasty and perfectly sized to feed the masses and the desserts were delicious! We have received so many compliments from friends and family; we’re even trying to come up with any excuse to have another catered event!! The waiting and bar staff were friendly and professional and were extremely attentive to our guests needs. We can’t thank Teresa and her amazing team enough. You helped make our perfect day even more perfect. Love from the Gildings.

So pleased we were able to use your wonderful catering service yesterday afternoon for the official Opening of our Geography building. The food as always was delicious and there were so many lovely comments about the catering.

A big big thank you to you and your team for the effort you went to for our wedding at Sopley Mill on the 2nd November. The food was amazing. Everyone has commented on how good it was and we have even converted some non-Chinese lovers. Please pass our thanks to Chef Lam, his wife and the team also. We are grateful for all the effort you went to organising the reception drinks, toasts, table decorations (which looked fantastic), evening buffet and the way you directed and organised the day smoothly. Nothing was to much for you and it was really appreciated. We wish you well in the future and thank you once again.

I cannot thank you enough for the service and food you provided for our wedding catering. Throughout the whole planning process Teresa was so helpful and friendly and offered a range of suggestions when we weren't really sure what we wanted; she even came to our home to enable us to try the food beforehand. The food at the wedding was the talking point of our guests and I've lost count of the amount of people who have complimented it. You made our day what it was and we are so grateful!!
