Wedding refreshments

Keeping your guests cool at a hot summer wedding is a gesture which never goes unappreciated. As we all know, the British weather can keep us on our toes! Thankfully at Kalm Kitchen we have some great ideas for summer wedding refreshments which will keep everyone happy through blazing sunshine and balmy summer evenings.

Kalm Kitchen Event & Styling Manager, Pete Holder is in charge of coming up with creative ways to present our food and drinks. He says, “Knowing what to serve your guests either before the ceremony, or immediately after while waiting or mingling is a detail that can get overlooked. But we know it’s something which proves hugely popular. You can choose either from a fully serviced station, or something more casual and fun where guests simply help themselves.”

Here are some of our favourite ideas…

Lovely lollies

Summer wedding refreshments

Gone are the days when ice pops were just for the kids. These grown-up versions feature favourite flavours such as Champagne or Bellini. We work with premium popsicle brand Pops and serve up alongside our homemade, thirst-quenching cloudy lemonade to make sure everyone is hydrated. Not only does this nostalgic stall look stunning, it’s a great way to keep everyone happy with a cool, iced treat.

A lotta bottle

Summer wedding refreshments

Everyone loves our vintage bathtubs and troughs filled with beers, water or any other bottled drinks you care to serve up! A novel version of taking a dip, guests can ‘dip in’ and fish out an ice cold drink of their choice.

Flavour sensations

Simple fruit and herb infusions takes the humble glass of water to a new dimension. We fill Kilner style dispensers with water and an array of fresh flavours then decant into cute, individual bottles. So whether it’s lemon and lime, blood orange or handfuls of fresh picked mint, your guests will be coming back for more.

Summer classic

Refreshments don’t always have to be of the liquid variety. Turning dessert into an epic sharing station is a total crowd pleaser. Our interactive Eton Mess stand features an array of meringues, ripe, scarlet-coloured fruits, cream, wildflower & elderflower jelly, pink rhubarb compote and  honeycomb. Plus, a generous abundance of other irresistible sweetness. It’s a treat for the eyes, tastes delicious and everyone gets stuck in. What could possibly say British summertime more?

Breakfast Platters

Wedding day mornings are notoriously busy, so our new breakfast grazing tray platter is the perfect solution. We deliver this feast first thing to be casually enjoyed by brides, grooms or any of the wedding party while the preparations are underway. We’re huge fans of any food that can be shared, and this early start extravaganza is a welcome addition to the Kalm Kitchen line-up.

Kalm Kitchen breakfast platter

Stacked with morning treats such as fresh fruit, nuts, cheeses, pastries and banana bread, it’s designed for diving into. And the feedback we’ve had so far is that it’s utterly delicious.

Event & Styling Manager, Pete Holder says, ‘I have always been a massive lover of sharing boards. My favourite style of food is a selection of delectable things to snack on. That’s why we created this morning tray for our brides and grooms. Now they can have that experience right from the start of their special day.’

Talk to us about how we can cater all the way from breakfast through to late night snacks. Get in touch at or call us on 01483 813360.
