Belinda and Dominic

Who: Belinda and Dominic | When: July 2018 | Where: The Garden Museum, London

Situated on the banks of the River Thames, in the imposing shadows of the Houses of Parliament, The Garden Museum provided the astonishing setting for Belinda and Dominic’s classy, city wedding. With a brief to capture a clean, botanical and fresh mood, which reflected London life, we were thrilled to conjure up a modern, original menu for them.

Guests arrived at 5pm to start the drinks and canapé reception, while a chorus of strings played in the background. This was very much an evening affair, so with that in mind, we went for an array of stylish combinations, which were bursting with flavour. With crisp, contemporary styling at the heart of the day, we accessorised with an understated palette of white, with a touch of gold and an abundance of green accents provided by vibrant foliage.

Children were catered for with their very own menu, which was just as stylish as the grown-ups’, and vegetarians tucked into an indulgent Moussaka, while a rump of perfectly cooked new season lamb took centre stage – served up and carved at the table.

With the wedding party and all the guests happily fed, soul band The Suggestions took to the stage with an amazing set, which really brought the party alive. This was followed by DJ Chris Binns on the decks, with the music continuing long into the evening.


This was certainly a day to remember – chic, memorable and full of big city spirit. The bride and groom contacted us afterwards with this glowing feedback…

‘Dom and I would like to express our gratitude to you for all you did to make our wedding on Saturday special. In the run up to the day you had endless patience with all our questions, and helped us negotiate our way through the huge mountain of organisation to ensure that we had every part of the day planned out to a tee.

Under your leadership, the Kalm Kitchen team did a brilliant job and everything from the drinks reception through to the three-course meal and bar felt totally seamless. We particularly appreciated your efforts to keep Dom and myself fed and watered with your personal service during the drinks reception – eating and drinking definitely had been low on our agenda the whole day so it was great to be reminded to do that!

In terms of the food, the meal was excellent and we have had a lot of people say that it is the best wedding food that they have ever had. The lamb in particular was perfectly cooked, and we would be grateful if you could pass on our compliments to the chef. The service too was slick and unobtrusive, and the team members were polite and courteous.

With thanks again to both you and Kalm Kitchen for making our day special.

Best wishes

Bea and Dom xx
