Behind the scenes with the Town Hall Hotel wedding team


We’re nearing the end of our wedding food blog series, and today I wanted to introduce you to the Town Hall Hotel wedding food available if you choose this gorgeous venue as your place to say I do. The culinary team are led by Head Chef Luke Robinson and they pride themselves in using locally sourced (to the UK) ingredients to create exceptional dishes of simple flavours combined with innovative cooking techniques.

Following our styled shoot last month (we’ll feature that soon) I photographed some of their delicious mouth-watering dishes. If you want to get more of an idea of the Town Hall Hotel wedding food on offer, there is a sample menu on their website, and it looks divine!

Now, the Town Hall Hotel regularly use Lamplighter London for their calligraphy needs, and after seeing their food and a beautiful penned menu with swirling calligraphy I can see why, they are a match made in heaven. So if you’re looking for your London wedding stationery then definitely give Lamplighter London a look, and if you’re of the “do it yourself” mentality, they also run workshops, which I’m really hoping to make it along to one day (and if not a London one then I’ll be taking a trip up North to visit my very favourite Claire from Calligraphy for Weddings).
