The Garden Wedding Company

Marilyn has been a wedding caterer and planner in Vancouver area since 1996 and understands what it means to have a seamless wedding. Marilyn believes that catering is so much more than just food. It’s the presentation of the service, the special touches to the day, and of course, the lovingly prepared food that enlightens everyone’s taste buds. Marilyn has always enjoyed the challenges that arise out of special event catering including garden weddings.

Giving back to the community

Cuisine and Company, and The Garden Wedding Company give back to the community each year by supporting fundraising efforts for the Surrey Food Bank, helping to raise $107,000.00 in 2015 alone, as well as the Surrey Fire Fighters Fund. We also donate unused food when possible to the guests at the local homeless shelter. We also support needy families in starting their own businesses through World Vision.

Marilyn is a past founding director of the Surrey Homeless and Housing Society (serving for 8 years), and a past executive director of the White Rock South Surrey Chamber of Commerce.
