As the evening reception got into full swing, the couple had arranged for music and dancing to the unmistakable sound of a ceilidh band. A ceilidh at a wedding reception was something we hadn't encountered until fairly recently, then we got two in rapid succession! This one at the beautiful at Woodthorpe Hall in Derbyshire was run by a Ceilidh Band and Caller Roger the Badger! These are amazing fun for all the guests who wish to take part and probably even more fun for those who decide not to join in and watch the proceedings (chaos!) from the side-lines! I wouldn't admit to being able to dance, or to memorise and follow a complex set of instructions so would probably be deemed as a perfect candidate for having a go at a Ceilidh, particularly at a wedding after a couple of glasses of something nice! Fortunately (for me) I'm usually far too busy photographing the dancing to get roped in! These can be real fun though and are definitely something a little different at a wedding reception.
Woodthorpe Hall is a magnificent wedding venue located in Holmesfield in North East Derbyshire. The venue has a camp site next door which is available for guests wishing to stop over and spend the night. It is also a very pretty venue, tucked away at the end of a quiet lane, the hall has some wonderful photo opportunities, more of which we would love to investigate at our next wedding there.Keywords: dancing (9), wedding reception (6), Woodthorpe Hall (39).
