A Riding School wedding

We love a Riding School wedding, it’s part of the Calke Abbey estate in Ticknall. It’s somewhere we’ve always walked the dogs, ever since I was a little girl and it’s also where Ben & I had our first date 11 years ago!! So it’s a special place to us and we always have loads of fun with the Honeysuckle and Castle ladies too – so it’s an all round great venue!

Bridal preps on the estate

Jen chose to get ready on the Calke Abbey estate in one of their gorgoues little cottages, along with her mum. It was all very relaxed and Jen was ready in great time. Jen was so nervous bless her, but it was soon time to drive down to the Riding School and get the day started!! Beautiful Flowers by Breige were everywhere and there were logs lining the aisle too. Dan was waiting patiently, albeit just as nervous as Jen I think!

A rainy wedding

It had been raining on and off all morning but thankfully it stopped after the ceremony and we all headed out into the courtyard for drinks, confetti and a few photos! It soon started again so everyone headed in to make the most of the comfy chairs and sofas. As soon as we got a break in the weather the golf cart was summoned and we jumped aboard to go up to the Walled Gardens, to make the most of the the meadow and the Orangery. We might have got a little wet on the wayback in the cart,  don’t worry Jen was safe… we surrounded her in umbrellas but me and Ben got soaked!! 😂

Ben played the sax during the wedding breakfast, which everyone loved. When dinner was over the band were there ready to get set up and get the party started. We had such a lovely time with Jenny & Dan – they’re a lovely couple, so are their friends and family! Here’s just a few of our favourites from the day, but be sure to click through to the Full Gallery at the end of the page to see the rest! 😀
