Prepare yourself for some serious wedding eye candy as we reflect on our Wedding Open Day at the unique and characterful barn wedding venue, the Riding School, Calke Abbey. To bring the stunning barn to life we enlisted the expertise of some of the very best wedding suppliers in the midlands, The Wedding Event Design Studio Wild Thyme,  and Rose Press as well as Oehlers Photography who kindly captured the styling, Executive Linen who provided the lovely chairs, Distinct Event solutions and wait until you see the jaw-dropping display created by Fabric Theatre.

When you’re the proud exclusive coordinators for such a stunning and quirky venue like Calke Abbey, we always look forward to opening the doors and really showing off this amazing space. A true ‘blank canvas’ venue, no two weddings are ever the same and couples have complete freedom to fill the incredible space with their own personality. We also love getting our creative juices flowing every time we hold an open day to showcase something different, with help from some brilliant suppliers.

Whether you’re on countdown to your own Calke Abbey wedding or if you are still looking for your perfect venue, our open days are the best time to come and visualise your own day and chat to the team about how we can help transform this truly beautiful building and ensure your wedding runs seamlessly.

This time around we brought some glamour and sparkle to the Riding School, with silver sequins draped along the banquet style tables and mercury glass candlesticks reflecting the light provided by The Wedding Event Design Studio. The flowers in pastel tones by Wild Thyme softened the look and the vast ceiling with is giant historic beams came to life with a very special display from the amazing Fabric Theatre.
