Ivy House Weddings are exciting to present, The Riding School. A Grade I listed building nestled within the Calke Abbey estate and sitting on 600 acres of picturesque Derbyshire parkland.
The Riding School makes for the most perfect wedding venue, with it’s bare brick walls, exposed oak beams and stunning original windows that allow the natural light to pierce through, we believe that the Riding School is a truly unique wedding venue. It is a versatile space that suits every style. Whether you are a rustic couple, country glamour couple, a boho couple or want to go all out with over the top florals, chandeliers, sequins and neon sign!
We would love to welcome you and your guests to celebrate your I Do’s under the beautiful windows and then entertain your guests with drinks and canapes whilst we whisk you off to the six acres of gorgeous gardens. With our orangery, wild flower meadow, Gardeners’ Bothy, Ice House and and the only original auricula theatre in the country, you really are spoilt for choice.
Make sure you stop outside the imposing house for photographs before making your way back to the Riding School for an amazing feast prepared by our catering team, Black Peppermint.
After cutting the cake we are ready to dance the night away! Why not make a weekend of it by staying at one of the five incredible holiday cottages on the estate.
We would love for you to become a part of the Calke history.
