Sophie & Tom | Calke Abbey | The Gribbons Photography

We’re so excited to be sharing the photos from Sophie & Tom’s gorgeous Calke Abbey wedding today. Their day was photographed by the lovely Kim and Chantelle of The Gribbons photography – they have really captured the beauty of the venue and the celebrations that were had within…

Whilst the bridal party awaited in the courtyard, guests began to gather in the Riding School which had stunning fairy lights hanging from the beams on the ceilings, and a floral arch at the end of the aisle.

The groomsmen wore grey suits with soft, dusky pink ties which matched the roses in the bouquet. Bridesmaids were also in a dusky, romantic hue which perfectly bought out the colours in the decor.

After the ceremony, guests made their way outside The Riding School for drinks and to give their well wishes to the new Mr & Mrs. This time before the Wedding Breakfast is the perfect opportunity for photographers to make the most of the beautiful grounds within the Calke Abbey estate.

After group shots with the family, Sophie and Tom made their way towards the gardens, enjoying the Orangery and peach house for these stunning photographs.

Whilst Sophie and Tom were having their photographs taken, The Riding School was transformed for the wedding breakfast – complete with stunning floral arrangements and ‘LOVE’ letter lights.

After the wedding breakfast and speeches, it was time to make the most of that golden hour sunset – although the weather had been very hot, it was slightly overcast, so when the sunshine peeked through the clouds in the early evening, it was the perfect opportunity to get this amazing shot of the couple strolling through the meadow…

Evening guests began to arrive and after Sophie & Tom’s first dance, the celebrations were in full swing. It was the perfect Summer evening with a truly lovely couple.
