Cat & Angus

Who: Catriona and Angus | When: September 2018 | Where: High Billinghurst Farm

When a member of the Kalm Kitchen team gets married, you can guarantee it’s going to be a well-planned day! And, sure enough when our very own Cat married Angus, not only did it run like clockwork, but it was also a truly beautiful occasion, which was perfect in every single way. No surprises, we all shed happy tears of laughter and pure joy throughout the day as Cat made her wedding dreams come true with impeccable style and planning.

KK’s super Event Manger Pete was put in charge of making sure all of Cat’s ideas were brought to life – a role he relished! ‘I loved our planning sessions, especially when mixed with Salted Caramel ice cream and an episode of Desperate Housewives!’ he told us. ‘I am very lucky to call both of these amazing people my friends, and seeing through all their plans was an absolute honor. It will be a highlight wedding for the rest of my life.’

Kalm Kitchen’s ‘Little Black Book’ came into its own as Cat cherry-picked some really special suppliers to help create her vision. The super-talented Kate Avery was responsible for the florals and in particular creating the most amazing ‘Moongate’ masterpiece in the Elizabethan Room where Catriona and Angus exchanged vows. This was then transformed in the evening to be used as a photobooth. The day was captured beautifully by photographer Anneli Marinovich. Her calm presence on the day helped settle any nerves and ensured every moment would be remembered and treasured forever.

In honour of the changing season, Cat settled on a luxurious autumnal theme that comprised Bohemian glamping. Her autumn-inspired palette, which was a riot of rich, natural tones reflected the late September mood perfectly. Catriona and Angus’s dog Peanut was their ring bearer, complete with her own floral collar handmade by the Bride. The room filled with a chorus of ‘aaahhhs’ as the photogenic Cockapoo (with her very own Instagram account, no less) entered, carried by the brother of the Bride.

There was no shortage of vibrant, seasonal foliage and Cat had collected bags full of Maple leaves in the weeks leading up to the wedding to use as confetti. She picked a mixture of orange, red and purple leaves that magically celebrated their marriage. Even the canapés were carefully selected by our bride to fit in with the gorgeous hues of purple around the venue. The tasty bites included a delicious selection of flavours such as Beetroot Cured Salmon, Mini Arancini Balls and Peking Duck Pancakes.

The stunning Gold Patisserie Bar, which followed a meltingly-delicious main of Slow Cooked Shin of Beef, was designed by Cat and detailed with gorgeous florals by Kate to complement the array of delicious potted desserts, which created a sweet-toothed visual dream! A stunning cheeseboard was served as the evening cranked up into full swing, while gooey individual pots of Mac’n’Cheese were circulated to hungry guests as the party continued.


Cat and Angus were delighted with their day, and the Father of The Bride sent these kind words to super-planner Pete afterwards to express his gratitude:

‘I feel that a further word of thanks is most certainly warranted. When I recall every telling moment on Saturday in particular it includes you at the epicentre, calmly sorting everything out. It is a massive responsibility and requires multiple levels of calm, to say nothing of the diplomacy of many venerable ambassadors. That you achieved it all with great good humour and evident flawless success says a huge amount and we are all indebted to you. The train may have sped safely and comfortably on at every turn but the track laying was entirely yours. Thank you. Thank you for all that that particular weekend will mean over succeeding months and years. Many, many years.’
