We are utterly obsessed with this magical matrimony, which truly is romance made real. The Riding School at Calke Abbey, a National Trust property in Derbyshire, is a stunning no corkage wedding venue with high ceilings and exposed brickwork, which Megan & Kurt style superbly with soft drapery, fairylights, pretty florals and the pièce de résistance: a moon gate altar. Megan’s must have – ghost chairs – have set our hearts aflutter here at RMW (we totally get why they were top of her wishlist), and just when we thought this wedding couldn’t get any better we spy leather jackets, a doughnut wall and a glitter bar. Do not miss groom Kurt with a sparkly blue beard!
When Abbi from Save The Date magazine sent over her wedding, I literally let out a squeal of joy – it’s THAT good. The level of detail is just unreal, the flowers are incredible, the styling is spot on and the dresses, well let’s just say you’re totally spoiled on the fashion front too. Abbi and Ash have created the most incredible day, full of surprises and delights for guests and I have a feeling you’re going to LOVE it. It’s brining all of those cool Aussie vibes we love to lust over and this lucky pair were fortunate with the weather too!
They chose the incredible pairing of Matt Horan and This Modern Revelry to capture their day. I’ve included a LOT of images in this feature as I think you need to see it all, from every angle 😉 and make sure you watch the fun film from This Modern Revelry too as it put a huge smile on my face. This is one hell of a wedding guys, so buckle up – you’re in for a ride!
I’ve been looking forward to blogging this gorgeous wedding for a while. As soon as Matt Horan sent over some sneak peaks I knew it was going to be something special. Sharing the images with the team and judging their reactions, it was clear that it was going to be more than special – this wedding is truly extraordinary. Karen and Jonathan filled their venue with cherry blossom and the result is nothing short of spectacular. Throw in some serious attention to detail on the decor, a bronze hued Watters wedding dress and some stunning florals and you’ve got yourselves a dream wedding day.
As always, the images from Matt Horan are beautiful – all the light and love captured in such a magical way. And bonus points to Karen and Jonathan who discovered Matt via Rock My Wedding and flew him out to California to capture their big day. It was worth every penny, as you’re about to see…
