Lauren & Danny

I’ve been looking forward to this wedding for a while now, firstly because when we met Lauren and her mum at The Bulls Head in Repton on a swelteringly hot day back in 2018 – they were both so lovely! But then we met Lauren and Danny for coffee a couple of months before the big day and saw how great they are together, we knew it was gonna be a top day. Plus the wedding was in The Riding School at Calke Abbey which Ben and I adore. But also they had been granted rare permission to get have their wedding ceremony in the tiny church on the estate too!

So as we waited at the church with the Danny and the guests, we could hear the roar of a V8 Mustang approach and we knew Lauren had arrived. She looked gorgeous in her Riki Dalal dress from the ladies at Lori G Bridal! It was a crazy hot day so we were all delighted to go into the cold church and take our seats for the wedding. The vicar was AMAZING – a weight lifting vicar, who was a total dude… not come across that before!! He was funny and engaging – wish he could do all our weddings!

After a little walk around the walled gardens with Lauren & Danny, we were all HOT 🔥, like seriously sweltering and in need of a cold beer! So, we headed back to The Riding School for drinks and mingling time. Lovely speeches and a BBQ type meal followed, then into the evening reception with a really great band called Stereo Soldiers.


It was a great day, we really enjoyed our time at this wedding and the day flew past so quickly!! Here are just a few of our favourites from the day while we work on your full gallery!!!


Our only rules are… You gotta hit “Full Screen” and you gotta turn it up LOUD. Enjoy xx
