This September I was so delighted to be back at my favourite wedding venue – Ashley Wood Farm in Salisbury. There’s something just so beautiful about the sandstone barn and duck egg blue doors; I’d shoot here every week if I could! So I was over the moon when Laura & Will booked me for their wedding which took place this late summer.
Laura & Will got married at their local church before exiting to a sea of confetti and jumping into their navy blue vintage car. As they only live a stones throw away from Ashley Wood Farm and regularly walk their dog near by, they knew of some gorgeous little hidden beauty spots around the grounds, so although I’ve been lucky enough to shoot many a wedding there over the years, they introduced me to some lovely new places! They ended the night with a fantastic ceilidh dance which always has wedding guests in stitches, and what a better way to work off that wedding dinner?!
Such a wonderful day, thank you so much for choosing me to capture it! Congratulations to you both.

Ahh I’m not sure there are any wedding venues quite as beautiful as Ashley Wood Farm in Salisbury. It’s my number 1, favourite wedding venue to photograph in the world, and absolutely where I’d get married now if I were to do it all again (I’d pick the same husband though…most days) 😉
So when Alyx & Dan booked me for their July wedding, I was over the moon to discover it would be at Ashley Wood Farm. On what turned out to be one of the hottest days of the year…ANY year, we fanned out way through the most incredible party. The festivities were sky rocketed by England winning the footie (Alyx & Dan were kind enough to play the match on a projector for their guests) and it was great fun photographing guest trying and failing at the bucking bronco!
Such a great day, I laughed HARD. Thank you for having Holly and I along to share it with you, we absolutely loved it.

Venues I regularly shoot at can sometimes feel a little bit like my babies, so I know you’re not supposed to have favourites…but I kinda do a little bit with Ashley Wood Farm! This venue is O so flippin’ gorgeous, with it’s duck egg blue barn doors and sand coloured walls, plus I LOVE the fact you can opt to get married outside in the garden if you choose to. Not only that but it has the loveliest little cottage on site to get ready in in the morning and to stay in the night of the wedding… so I may even be so daring to say it’s pretty much PERFECT.
So when Emily & Jim asked me to be the photographer for their September wedding at Ashley Wood Farm, you can imagine I was delighted! Everything about their wedding was absolutely-knock your socks off-gorgeous, and the barn was styled impeccably. All the tables were given brightly coloured flowers in cute jars, with gold and hessian touches and multi-coloured ribbons hanging from the ceiling. They even had botanical information cards up-cycled as bunting, O my!
After a week of threatened rain, we were lucky and Emily and Jim were able to wed outside in the garden exactly as they had wanted to. Afterwards, they were met with a shower of confetti instead of rain, before guests mingled, chatted and enjoyed the canapes.
Before the meal we wondered around the grounds capturing their couple shots, before the evening party kicked off with an awesome Ceilidh band which got almost everyone up on their feet.
I LOVED this wedding, thank you so much for having Dan and I along; some of these photos are his <3

When Emily & Alex asked me to capture their special day at Ashley Wood Farm in Salisbury I was over the moon! It is SUCH a wonderful venue, definitely one of my favourites in Hampshire and I suspect this is where I would choose to get married now if Mr Hoops and I were to do it all over again! There is something delightful about those beautiful duck egg blue doors, I just love them! At Ashley Wood Farm you also get to visit a cornfield, which is just up on the hill, it makes for fabulous couples photography well, honestly, it is just perfect.
There were so many special details in Emily & Alex’s wedding that really made it unique to them (and a few ideas to borrow for your own plans too!). One of the things I loved most about this wedding were the table centre displays. Instead of the traditional flowers as a feature, Alex & Emily had home made cakes, which looked (and smelled!) delicious! Once it was time for the guests to have dessert a designated table person cut the cake for everyone else and shared it amongst the group. What a great idea, and such a fun way to keep the tables talking and enjoying their part in the wedding!
All the little details were so colourful and made this wedding so much fun! From the brightly coloured mis-matched socks of the groomsmen, to the brides amazing red shoes, the blues and oranges in amongst the greenery of the bridal party bouquets, down to the beading on the bridesmaids dresses. Emily’s gown was perfect for her, with lovely lace detailing and pockets! Who wouldn’t love a dress with pockets! The fun didn’t stop there! There were pinwheels on the tables, bicycle table plans, a giant tasseled balloon and they even served the BBQ from the back of a converted tractor, which would be absolutely perfect for a farm wedding.
It was such a pleasure to photograph this brilliant day, thank you for having Dan and I along! A big thanks to Dan as always, some of these photos are his.

Ashley Wood Farm is one of my absolute favourite venues of all time, and so when Iske & Tom asked me to capture their day, I was squeeee excited! I actually think that, of all the amazing venues I get to see week on week, that if I were to get married again now, Ashley Wood Farm would be ‘the one’ 🙂 Something about those duck egg blue barn doors – I just love ’em!
Everything about their wedding was just gorgeous, from the venue itself to the styling and decor – ooh and the cake table! We also got the most beautiful golden sunset, and all my clients will know how happy I am when we get golden hour!
Thank you for choosing me guys, I absolutely loved this wedding. A big thank you to my fabulous assistant Dan for helping me, some of these photos are his.
