Kate & Tom | Richard Gardner Photography

Kate & Tom had their wedding reception at Calke Abbey’s Riding School. It was a day filled with many laughs from this fun-loving couple – the pictures speak for themselves!

The photos were captured beautifully by Richard Gardner. Take a peek…

The Riding School was filled with the most beautiful bright blooms. The oranges, blues and pinks were nestled amongst lots of greenery, hanging from the beams and placed in gin bottles on the tables.

Guests gathered in the courtyard for photographs, making the most of the beautiful brick buildings that are scattered on the Calke Abbey estate. The perfect backdrop for group shots!

Kate & Tom also got to take full advantage of the Calke Abbey wildlife, with the stags and deer posing for photographs too…

The Orangery is a firm favourite photography spot at Calke Abbey, and photographer Richard Gardner really made the most of this space. We got to see it from lots of different angles, which gave a real botanical feel to Kate & Tom’s photographs.

Thankfully the weather was nice enough for photographs in the walled gardens too. The wildflowers were out in full force, and the pretty potted flowers were also a great backdrop for this lovely couple.

After exploring the Calke Abbey grounds as newlyweds, Kate & Tom headed back to the Riding School. They enjoyed their Wedding Breakfast catered by Black Peppermint. Plus, the all-important speeches!

A beautiful day ended in the most beautiful way. The Bride & Groom danced the night away with their nearest and dearest. Thank you to Kate & Tom’s photographer, Richard Gardner for allowing us to share these stunning photos.
