Real-Life: Camilla & George

Who: Camilla and George | When: September 2018 | Where: Blenheim Palace

Every wedding we’re a part of at Kalm Kitchen has a special place in our hearts, and we can genuinely say that we love all our couples. There are some occasions though that still take our breath away, and this was one of them! From the moment Camilla walked down the aisle to marry George at St Mary Magdalene Church in Woodstock under a beautiful arch festooned with florals, the scene was set for the absolutely stunning details that followed throughout the day.

After the ceremony, guests were transported to the South Lawn of magnificent Blenheim Palace for a lunch reception filled with an abundance of food and drink, where they feasted on canapés such as Scotch Quails Eggs and Salt and Pepper Squid; circulated bowl food of either Ceviche or Asparagus and Parmesan Risotto with truffle oil; and an assortment of innovative stalls, which we’d styled to enhance the visuals of all the delicious food.

A seafood stall featured live slicing of beetroot cured salmon, hot smoked salmon and oak smoked sliced salmon alongside blinis, pumpernickel, grilled sourdough, garlic aioli, marie rose, chervil, shallot and caper dressing, crispy baby gem and baby minted potatoes. Guests were also invited to tuck into Lobster Rolls in soft brioche buns and treated to an Oyster Meister serving up fresh oysters and delicious accompaniments, all presented on vintage silver platters.

A glass lantern roof gave our wooden-structured Organic Potting Shed the feel of a glass house, bursting with terracotta pots filled with produce. Ingredients echoed the homegrown aesthetic with an array of healthy and wholesome temptations including beetroot hummus; hummus; chive lemon and sour cream; bread crisps; pitta; quails eggs; roasted assorted nuts; syringe shots; protein balls; raw vegetables; stuffed baby courgette flowers; Apple, watercress and pistachio salad and Heritage tomato, avocado and spring green salad.

And finally, a Nitrogen Ice cream bar created true drama and looked incredible with its array of Salted Caramel Cookie Ice Cream, Dulce De Leche, Praline Pecan Ice Cream and Elderflower Sorbet accompanied by a selection of toppings including Honeycomb, Chocolate flakes & Freeze-dried raspberry.

As the perfect finishing touch, a bespoke swing - provided by The Oak and Rope Company and detailed with Camilla and George’s names - hung over the large oak tree outside the lunch marquee, nestled in the woodland.

After a wonderful afternoon, the wedding party departed to get ready for the evening, kicking off with a spectacular champagne and canapé reception in The Great Hall, before a formal dinner in the luxurious evening marquee situated in the beautiful Water Terrace. The evening was styled with soft pinks, golds and gorgeous overhead floral installations of stunning wild flowers. Beautiful rose Florence water goblets and gold-rimmed glasses were provided by Couvert and paired with a blush pink napkin on clean, white contemporary table linen. The centre of the room hosted a round table with a stunning centrepiece, which became our famous cheeseboard and patisserie bar as dinner drew to a close.

As we cleared the decks, a spectacular fireworks display was held facing the River Glyme. The evening was then transformed into a party, unveiling the 12-piece band, glitter station and circular cocktail bar, plus divine Farmhouse Cheese Toasties served up as a midnight snack at the end of the night.

It was such a privilege to be a part of this special day, and we were all bursting with pride at the results. The bride contacted us afterwards with these kind words…

‘I honestly don’t know how I can ever thank you for making our wedding day the best and most magical day of our lives. It surpassed all of my expectations, everything looked like a fairytale and the food was absolutely incredible! I had so many people asking me who the caterers were. The tables were literally a dream come true and I was so happy with all of our pink and gold choices! I just feel so lucky to have had you helping me with all the meticulous planning.

You have all been an absolute joy to work with, so efficient, kind and accommodating - there is absolutely no way I could have done it without you. I just wanted to let you know how eternally grateful I am for all that you’ve done for me. It was the most unforgettable day and I’ll cherish all of the memories, made so beautiful by all of you!’
