Calke Abbey July Open Day | Images by Leigh Mcara Photography

It’s been two weeks since our July Open Day at The Riding School, Calke Abbey and we are so excited to share these gorgeous images with you, captured by the fantastic Leigh Mcara. It’s always nice to get the opportunity to open the doors to this stunning venue and let visitors have a taste of what it would look like for a real wedding, and what a day we had!

We were in the middle of a British heatwave so the sunshine was out in full force, and the footfall to our open day was the busiest we had ever seen. Of course, the event was as wonderful as it was because we had a fabulous dream team of suppliers to help us out. The Riding School was transformed into a vintage floral heaven, with bright florals and greenery lining the tables, and gorgeous vintage tableware too. We’re sure you’ll all agree that it looked stunning.

If you missed out on this occasion then don’t worry, you can always join us at our next event! We are busy planning for the¬†Calke Abbey Wedding Show¬†which will be held on 23rd September. You can find out more on our Events page here.

A special thank you goes out to all of those suppliers who helped on the day. Including:

Black Peppermint Food Company // Fabric Theatre // Vintage Monkeys // Twisted Willow // Fabulous Baker Girls // Gladys Daisy // GB Fun Casino’s // Chris Hill (flute musician) // CW Campervans //and of course, Leigh Mcara for the images.

If you like the look of Calke Abbey and you wish to book a private viewing with a member of our events team, please feel free to get in touch with us on and we will be more than happy to help.
