Afternoon! A little update for those of you looking to get married in the East Midlands, there are 3 incredible venues you need to know about and can visit for upcoming wedding events this summer. Calke Abbey is stunning, and the glasshouse at Clumber Park would be perfect for summer wedding photos and Stancliffe Hall fulfils the grand, romantic whimsy in me. Basically, I can’t chose between them, they are all stunning!

I get asked all the time if I ever get bored of weddings “surely they’re all the same” “doesn’t it get repetitive?!”. I always answer the same incredulous “absolutely not!”. And when I get sent weddings as gorgeous as today’s it is a constant reminder that all weddings are unique and beautiful, all couples are worthy and deserve love and everyone loves dancing with their loved ones till the early hours (venue permitting ha).
