Charlotte & Bradley | Calke Abbey wedding | Ben Pollard Photography

Today, we’re so happy to be sharing these photographs from the lovely Charlotte & Brad’s wedding. We’re sure you’ll soon see from the photographs; the day was filled with pure joy and happiness. Not only from Charlotte & Brad, but their family and friends were smiling from ear to ear throughout the entire day.

Dressed in a stunning a-line gown with a veil, Charlotte arrived at the Riding School in style, and was greeted by a very emotional groom. We might be biased, but the photos capturing Brad’s reaction as Charlotte walked down the aisle are up there with some of our favourite photos of all time.

After the ceremony, guests were treated to canapes and fizz provided by Black Peppermint Food Company. The perfect opportunity to give their congratulations to the happy couple!

Whilst the guests were mingling at The Riding School, the new Mr & Mrs were taken into the gardens to have their photographs taken. The Orangery always makes a stunning backdrop, and Charlotte & Brad really made the most of this pretty botanical location.

The Riding School had been dressed with blush pinks, navy blue and lashings of gold. Simple, yet elegant and romantic decor which complemented the rustic charm of the venue perfectly. Gold painted bottles stood in the middle of the tables, with ivory and dusky pink roses amongst stems of greenery…

When Charlotte & Brad arrived back at The Riding School, guests were seated for the Wedding Breakfast, once again prepared by Black Peppermint Food Company. Then it was time for the speeches!

As the evening went on and the sun began to set, Charlotte & Brad managed to steal a few moments alone and make the most of the beautiful Calke Abbey sunset…

…before making their way back to the venue, where evening guests had begun to arrive and the party could really get underway! We’re sure you’ll agree that everyone looks like they’re having the time of their life!

Guests even got to enjoy a fabulous casino for the evening, as well as some incredible live entertainment…

We seriously can’t get enough of this lovely couple and all of their guests who are having an incredible time dancing and singing along to the music – we’re sure that Charlotte & Brad will look back on these photos and remember what a fun night everyone had!
