Charlotte & Matthew

Who: Charlotte & Matthew | When: August 2017 | Where: Millbridge Court

Most couples view their wedding day as an excuse to throw the party of their lives, and in Charlotte and Matthew’s case, they fully poured their hearts and souls into creating a fun-packed day, which their family and friends would remember forever. The ceremony was in the beautiful arbour gardens of Kalm Kitchen’s much-loved venue, Millbridge Court. Local florists Lavender Hill dressed the arch with a beautiful display, and to add the finishing touches Charlotte decorated the arch herself with homemade pastel ribbons.

Tent and festival specialists ‘The Little Top’ were on the scene with their quirky tepee to keep little guests amused, and the team scattered the lawn with giant games and hula hoops for all the guests to get involved with. Charlotte and Matthew loved seeing all their loved ones mingle, and it meant they got to spend time with everyone, so the garden party vibe worked wonders.

Strolling acoustic trio, Wandering Hands, added to the party atmosphere, performing on the move and giving all the guests a taste of their amazing tunes while everyone tucked into a selection of canapés featuring crowd-pleasing takes on family favourites such as Bite-sized Fish & Chips and Mini Burgers. The main meal was a fantastically indulgent buffet, presented beneath a copper arch, showcasing plenty of Mediterranean flavours for everyone to enjoy.

Afterwards, a rustic Patisserie bar took centre stage, bursting with decadent displays of yummy elements for guests to create their own takes on Chocolate and Eton Mess, plus Banoffee Pots, Macaroons on Sticks and Chocolate Lollipops. As the day drew to a close, beautiful displays of cheese, chutney, fresh honey, fruit, bread and wafers were brought out on stunning blackboard backdrops. There was also a vibrant wall of flavoured doughnuts, creating a stylish, eye-catching and mouthwatering sweet treat, perfect for guests to have on the go, or to take away as a parting gift.

The couple contacted us afterwards with these lovely words:

‘We had the most magical day, and it’s huge thanks to you and the invisible teams behind you that made it happen. We have been inundated with messages of how amazing the venue, food, displays and waiting service were – our guests have been absolutely blown away by the care and attention they were shown. Extra special thanks to Pete and Sarah (…) for your patience, accommodating all our crazy requests and making it honestly the day of our dreams. And a special thanks to you personally for always having a smile on your face and taking such good care of me and Matt ensuring we always had a drink and plate of food. You are an absolute superstar!’
