The Riding School at Calke Abbey

The Riding School at Calke Abbey is  photographer’s dream. It’s full of charm, character and quirky features that make it a stunning space for a wedding ceremony and reception. The six hundred acre grounds of Calke Abbey gives an array of varied locations for couple portraits. With its peeling paint, exposed brick, wooden doors and fairy lights, the Riding School has an industrial feel for those couples looking for something different
