Introduction

Laidback Vibes & A Whole Lotta Love

We're taking a trip back to The Riding School at Calke Abbey with Iain & Kelly's lovely, laidback wedding day! These guys love travelling the world and wanted to incorporate this into their wedding theme, including a subtle touch of Tartan for a nod towards Iain's Scottish routes. Plus - they had their dog there during the day and you know how much we love dogs at weddings and she certainly stole the show...

TELL US ABOUT YOUR VENUE...

“We loved the blank canvas that The Riding School offers, the exposed brickwork and old rustic charm was perfect for what we wanted, plus Calke Abbey grounds are absolutely stunning.”

DESCRIBE THE STYLE OF YOUR WEDDING...

“We incorporated our love of travel into our theme, with our favourite places as table names and a world map as our seating plan. My dad built a hexagonal arch for the backdrop of the ceremony, which at 7ft x 7ft was then a bit of a challenge to work out how to transport to the venue!”

WHAT DID YOU ALL WEAR?

“My dress was from Mimi Toko in Belper and the bridesmaid dresses were from Rococo Maids in Melbourne. The groom and groomsmen all wore suits from Next.”

WHAT DID EVERYBODY EAT & DRINK?

Black Peppermint were the caterers, the mini fish and chips canapés went down a storm! Our wedding breakfast was sharing platters of beef filets, fish and risotto & mozzarella balls plus lots of delicious sides and deserts.”

HOW DID YOU ENTERTAIN YOUR GUESTS?

“Elite Wedding DJs provided our evening entertainment.”

DO YOU HAVE ANY WORDS OF ADVICE FOR FUTURE BRIDES & GROOMS?

“Just enjoy it, don’t get too stressed with the planning as it will all come together on the day.”
