Mr & Mrs Clay – Calke Abbey, Derbyshire

Friday 22nd July 2016

Believe it or not, we had found ourselves another couple who were planning their wedding day all the way from Australia, what are the chances?!

After deciding to travel five years ago, Jess and Dean fell in love with the laid-back lifestyle down under and decided to make their stay there a permanent one!

By the time Jess and Dean’s wedding day came around, they felt more like friends than clients and it was our pleasure to be part of their special day!

They opted for a traditional three-course meal starting with a parcel of slow cooked duck followed by our signature Coca-cola braised pork belly with popcorn crackling for the main event and a delicious compilation dessert of lemon brulee, Eton mess parfait and dark chocolate tart to finish.

Their day was a glorious one (far and few between as most of us know in good old England) full of sunshine, smiles, and love fit for this glowing couple!

It couldn’t have worked any better with their beautiful décor of festoon lighting and sparkles teamed with golden yellow roses in the stunning Calke Abbey.

They enjoyed a relaxed day taking it all in followed by a fabulous evening reception to celebrate both their homecoming and wedding day!
