Introduction

Doughnut Walls & Floral Décor

The Riding School at Calke Abbey (one of all ALL time favourite venues) was the most magical setting for Megan & Kurt's wedding day. Part of the Honeysuckle & Castle collection, this no-corkage wedding venue boasts exposed brickwork, high ceilings and an incredible atmosphere.

Megan & Kurt decorated the space with twinkling fairylights, gorgeous ghost chairs, plenty of florals and an EPIC moon gate altar. Let's not forget the doughnut wall, glitter bar, personalised leather jackets and the groom's blue glitter beard.

Yep, this wedding is rather cool so dive straight into the gallery...

THE INSPO BEHIND THE STYLING...

“The style of the wedding stemmed from two things: my dress and shoes, and the fabulous Victoria ghost chairs we hired from Premier UK. I had fantasised about the chairs since the moment we booked The Riding School at Calke Abbey. The flowers and stationery all took shape around these elements, and Maria’s Flowers and Laura Elizabeth were incredible from start to finish. My dad made the donut wall on a perspex sheet to match the ghost chairs, and Laura personalised it for us in keeping with the theme of our stationary. We also had a glitter bar and photobooth, which kept our guests entertained all night – and is something they still talk about now!”

FAVOURITE MOMENT OF THE DAY...

“When I walked into The Riding School, filled with friends and family, it was overwhelming to see the way everything had come together. All of our suppliers worked seamlessly to ensure everything was perfect, and our photographer, Matt Horan, made sure every photo we could have dreamed of being taken was taken. It didn’t even feel as if he was there as a vendor; he just felt like one of the guests! We were also really pleased with all the ‘little’ things that were so worth thinking of and arranging: the bridesmaids’ leather jackets, glitter bar, doughnut wall, details in the stationary, floral moon gate and photobooth were all huge parts of the day.”
