Swiss Alpine Themed Wedding at The V&A

With towering spruce trees, a gluhwein bar and a magnificent projection of the Matterhorn Swiss mountain gracing the Dome, the Victoria and Albert Museum was transformed for one night into a magical alpine world for this exclusive wedding. Our wedding creator worked closely with the bride and groom to help guests feel as if they had been transported back to their home country of Switzerland.

Guests were greeted with a display of spectacular cocktails on arrival at The Dome’s up lit central bar for a warming canapé reception. Amongst others, shots of hot pumpkin cream with truffle oil and baked goats cheese and pimento tarts topped with chilli pickle were circulated, inviting guests to take in the stunning environs of the superbly dressed space.

The newlyweds and their friends were then coaxed through to the beautiful Raphael Gallery, bathing in enchanting music from a string quartet set amongst a specially constructed fountain and alpine shrubbery.

With pan seared seabass and golden enochi mushrooms with truffle cream to start, roast rump of lamb with smoked garlic mash, pancetta shard and shredded winter cabbage for the main course and a trio of desserts to finish. After dinner, guests enjoyed dancing in the now completely redressed Dome which had been transformed into the style of a Swiss chalet including a late night hot gluhein bar and snack station
