The daughter of the butchers.


I founded Butchers Daughter in 2016. We are a catering company and event and wedding stylist operating in Sydney and Newcastle. 

 

Cooks, florists and customer service teams come together in the most magic of occasions. We jerk hearts with our curated celebrations.

 

The brand derives from mum and dad Roy and Suellyn Seaman being butchers in Dubbo.  I grew up on a sheep farm outside of town called Nepunya, and got my concept of food and flowers from the displays my folks did in their butcher shops with fruits and vegetables.

 

From age 12, I worked in the butcher shops with my sister Emma starting as cashier in the fruit section, which having product available for customers to tomatoes at a butcher shop was forward thinking for the time. Their shops were the only in the region to not have to use saw dust as a method of collecting fat from off the floors. They were styled to prescision in wares and there was an old bath I still have they filled with plants.

 

My great friends Heidi, Clare, Deb, Jo, Kathy, Barb and Sophie each have special place within my menus and floral designs. And my adored parents-in-law, Miklos and Patricia, grow and make paprika and turmeric powders, pickle vegetables and smoke goods in Old Bar for Butchers Daughter.

 

Prior to opening I managed large scale catering companies Bayleaf and Aria by Matt Moran, which took me to tour Australia with The Black Keys, Powderfinger, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and ACDC, and produce Silver Party, Gold DinnerTEDx Sydney, Magic Millions, Dinner en Blanc and New Years Eve at the Sydney Opera House.
 

I had the opportunity to craft food content for Delicious magazine, and in 1999 collected the Melbourne Olympic torch from Westfields vault in Brisbane, for me to hand to then city mayor, Frank Sartor, in the lead up the the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games.

 

Occasions curated by Butchers Daughter are with thoughtfulness, from my heart, and in sentiment to the past forward.
