About The Riding School, Calke Abbey

Ivy House Weddings is a countryside wedding venue located in the heart of Derbyshire, England. Set amidst 600 acres of picturesque parkland, this historic manor house in Ticknall dates back to the eighteenth century. From the moment they arrive, guests will be transported to a bygone era of glamour and elegance at Calke Abbey. The manicured gardens, fragrant flowers, and unique greenhouses are just some of the scenic highlights on the grounds of this estate. The Baroque exterior of the main house is the ideal backdrop for wedding photographs. Receptions are held at The Riding School, which has everything you need to plan a special celebration.

Facilities and Capacity

Civil ceremonies can be held on the grounds of the estate or you can organise a church wedding in the on-site chapel. Ivy House Weddings presents The Riding School barn for upscale events for up to 240 people. This rural haven has been reimagined to a high-end finish while also retaining its original equine charm. This space features exposed red-brick walls, oak-wood beams, and elegant white drapes. Large windows allow natural light to seep in throughout the day.

Loved ones can enjoy a laid-back reception of canapés and bubbles or experience an evening of formal fine dining. This splendid destination is home to an authentic auricula theatre where you can stop by for portraits and group photos throughout your big day. When dinner is done and the cake has been cut, a night of dancing and partying awaits. This is a wheelchair-accessible venue and there is ample parking for your guests’ convenience.
