Lauren & Gareth at The Kedleston Country House

2020-03-05T13:58:10+00:00March 5th, 2020|

Lauren & Gareth had a small, intimate wedding with their close family and friends at the Kedleston Country House. It was a seemingly normal winters day… and then the snow arrived, just in time for the vows, leaving us with a gorgeous white blanket of snow draped over the venue. It made for some gorgeous photos, and went perfectly with the couples’ icy blue theme.

If you’re needing a mid-week pick-me-up, then what’s a better cure than a wedding with a dog?! Kelly & Iain’s Calke Abbey wedding consisted of stunning flowers, lashings of burgundy and a wooden hexagon ceremony backdrop, adding rustic charm to The Riding School. Combined with the gin wedding favours and classic strawberry Victoria Sponge wedding cake – it’s the perfect quintessentially English wedding, captured beautifully by Charlie & Em Photography

We’re so delighted to be sharing these gorgeous images from Lauren & Danny’s Calke Abbey wedding. HBA Photography certainly know how to get that ‘show-stopping’ image, and there are so many photos from Lauren & Danny’s wedding that look like they’re fresh out of the pages of a glossy magazine – particularly those captured out on the meadow in the ‘Golden Hour’ sunlight. The couple got married in St. Giles Church on-site at Calke Abbey, before celebrating with their wedding breakfast and evening reception in the Riding School. Take a look at their stunning wedding day…

Harry & Mira – Humpston & Bull Photography

If you’re looking to take some inspiration from a wedding that was classy, elegant and oh-so-chic then Harry & Mira’s wedding is the one for you. The couple said their vows in St Wystan’s Church in Repton, before driving an Austin Healey through the picturesque Derbyshire country lanes to The Riding School at Calke Abbey. They had the most beautiful set-up for their big day: epic ivory flowers, lots of greenery and soft, romantic tones to their decor – all photographed by the very talented Humpston & Bull Photography, who really captured those special moments throughout the day. Oh, and Mira’s dress was an absolute dream…
