An Australian boy meets an English girl. They learn to make pizza in a coastal town of Italy, then move their life — and pizza-making skills — to picturesque Mount Martha on the Mornington Peninsula. And the rest is history.
Gather Round founders Hannah and Zak launched Pizza Wagon — a successful mobile catering business run out of a classic Citroen H van — in 2012. The very van that Hannah shipped all her worldly possessions in when she moved to Australia.
A few years later the happy couple returned to Hannah’s native England, and married in the Hampshire countryside in front of their friends, family and three glorious Nordic tipis. All these magical elements came together to create a picture-perfect backdrop to the best day of their lives.
On their honeymoon the newlyweds plotted how they could bring this concept back to Australia, and have since made their dream a reality.
The Gather Round ‘family’ now includes their beloved Pizza Wagon and Peninsula Tipi's, plus an Italian gelati cart, mobile cool room and luxury Privy the Pretty mobile toilet — with more ‘additions’ on the way (watch this space!).
Based in picturesque Mount Martha on the Mornington Peninsula, the pair and their hard-working team love creating memorable moments, near and far.
They’ve been to markets, festivals, parties and weddings all over Victoria, but bespoke weddings and private events have become their speciality.
