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!
Honeysuckle & Castle are a dedicated team of wedding co-ordinators based in the East Midlands with an impressive portfolio of venues on our agenda, exclusively managing weddings held at National Trust Calke Abbey, National Trust Clumber Park and the privately owned Stancliffe Hall, with plans to expand in the near future. We have also hosted weddings at National Trust Hardwick Hall and National Trust Kedleston Hall until 2019 due to conservation work on the properties.
Each of our venues boasts a unique charm; The Riding School at Calke Abbey is a stunning blank canvas; a rustic barn-style venue which oozes character. Clumber Park has the quaint Old Parsonage as well as the botanical Glasshouse which are both ideal for small, intimate weddings. And Stancliffe Hall is steeped in history, hosting civil ceremonies in an old school chapel.
We have a great events calendar of open days and wedding fayre’s this year, with our June 14th Open Evening at Stancliffe Hall coming up next, and July 1st Open Day at Calke Abbey to follow, plus more events coming up at the end of Summer.
