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?
