Nicky's boutique catering About Us Hi. I’m Nicky Ward.

I've been in the hospitality industry for 15 years, working in many well-known busy cafés and restaurants. I've travelled the world and lived in London for the past five years working in many popular restaurants.

In Christchurch and in London I've been private catering for many different events, private dinner parties, canapé functions, corporate events, hens parties, baby showers etc.

I've won awards in New Zealand and Australia for my food and always enter into competitions in the restaurants that I have worked at and we have been successful in many of these.

I have a huge passion for food and creativity.

My style of cooking has changed over the years.  I have cooked many different variations of cuisines and different styles from pub to fine dining, to café food and functions.

My favourite chefs are Yotam Ottolenghi, Donna Hay and Jamie Oliver.  My reason for liking these chefs is that they use fresh, seasonal ingredients that are rustic and mouth-watering in appearance.

Since returning home from the UK I had the drive to set up my own company.

Over the past few years I have been lucky enough to be a involved in a few weddings and have seen how necessary it is for the wedding parties to be feed a gourmet breakfast and lunch as the bubbles flow on this very special day.

It is always an added stress to someone on the day of the wedding to organise/shop for the food, then cook/feed the wedding party on this busy morning, often forgetting to eat themselves and miss out on the enjoyment of the morning as they are too busy to take it in. Then you are left with the mess to clean up, Nicky's Boutique does all of this for you.


That's why at Nicky's Boutique Catering we understand just how important your wedding day is.

It's important to start the day on a high, knowing you don't have to lift a finger.

Nicky's Boutique Catering sets the scene with an elegantly laid table.

We provide delicious food and great service, from the morning of, to the next day.

Why not pay a little extra to help create more memories.


Nicky's Boutique Catering can cater to any taste, with a range of different options.
