Hampshire wedding at Clock Barn
Ahhh could Sophie & Ben nailed their Clock Barn wedding any more?! What an absolutely perfect summer wedding from start to finish.
Clock Barn is always one of my favourite venues – with it’s gorgeous gardens, incredible food and wonderfully helpful staff…and this day was no exception! Sophie & Ben are just the most lovely bundles of joy to be around, and I can honestly say my cheeks ached from smiling after I left!
For a start we had the most perfect summer weather – that kind of hot but not too hot hot, which everyone getting married in July hopes for. The always manicured gardens were absolutely bursting with colour, which offset Sophie soft, peaches and light pinks bouquets perfectly. The girls got ready in the prep room, before excitedly venturing over to the main barn where they both said their vows. The afternoon seemed to go by in a flash, with everyone mingling and chatting on the lawn, enjoying their canapes in the sunshine. We did our usual lap of the grounds, taking some gorgeous couple shots and taking in the beautiful scenery.
When dinner was ready, everyone went inside for a wonderful three course meal and some very moving and heartfelt speeches. Of course a summer wedding wouldn’t be a summer wedding without some evening sunset couple shots, and the golden hour light didn’t disappoint! An absolute belter of a day, well done team! What a pleasure.

O my, what a beauty! I’m so excited to share with you some of my favourite photos from Charlotte & Alex’s absolutely GORGEOUS Clock Barn wedding! It’s no secret Clock Barn is one of my favourite venues so I’m very lucky to get to shoot lots of weddings there every year. I never get tired of seeing what the magical gardeners have done with the grounds every time I arrive as something different and colourful is always new and in bloom!
The bridesmaids wore beautiful pink dresses which complimented perfectly the pink and purple wild flowers which Charlotte carried down the aisle. The wonderful florists at Eden Blooms put spectacular bunches together in pretty green glasses vases which were dotted around the barn and on the dinner tables which completed the wonderful, colourful and summery look. I also loved how many people were excited to see Charlotte dressed and ready in her gorgeous dress, and there were more than just a few tears shed!
Weddings often use white drapes behind the registrar during the vows however Charlotte & Alex chose a pink drape which looked absolutely brilliant! If you’re getting married at Clock Barn I would definitely encourage you to consider a colour drape as it really tied in all the decor together well.
Despite a somewhat iffy weather forecast, the day stayed dry and warm, as guests enjoyed canapes and drinks outside and among the flowers, before moving inside for speeches and delicious food. When it came to the dancing, Ashley Riggs packed out the dance floor with great music and as I left, everyone was laughing and throwing their best moves. Such a brilliant day, thank you so much for having me along!

I’ve been a wedding photographer for nearly 15 years now and I can honestly say I don’t think I’ve seen two people more in love than Emma & Mike. Ever. For reals. These two wonderful human beings got married at the glorious Clock Barn in Hampshire on Friday in front of a crowd of extremely loving friends and family, and it was an absolute pleasure to witness.
I don’t think I’ve seen two people laugh quite so much all day either; in fact it was infectious. They say the sun shines on the righteous and despite heavy rain being forecast all day we had a dry spell in exactly the part of the day we needed it, so were able to take the couple photos they wanted and family photos outside. What luck! What a perfect day.
You’re both incredibly special people, thank you so much for having Holly and I along for the ride. Mwah!

Last Saturday I was back at my favourite Hampshire barn – the glorious Clock Barn for Becky & Cody’s fabulous wedding. After getting ready in the cottages surrounding Oakley Hall in Basingstoke, Becky & Cody tied the knot at All Hallows Church in Whitchurch in front of their nearest and dearest before exiting through a sea of confetti and on towards Clock Barn.
Clock Barn was absolutely bursting with pretty summer flowers by the very talented Garden Inn florist, and giant ‘Love’ letters lit up the dance floor as guests explored the gorgeous gardens and delicious canapes. Despite the weather promising pouring rain all week we were so lucky with perfect weather and sunshine as we strolled around the grounds taking their couple shots before all going in for a wonderful 4 course meal. They also had a gorgeous wedding cake by the super talented Reilly Cakes… see if you can spot the Harry Potter reference!
Absolutely PERFECT day guys, thank you so much for choosing me to capture it for you. Here are a few teasers to keep you going before the full set is ready! Thank you too to Holly who shot alongside me for part of the day as well.

Barn wedding in Hampshire.
O gosh my heart could burst for these two gorgeous beings who married at Clock Barn this weekend! Rachael & Steph – two incredibly kind and brilliant women, tied the knot in this fabulous Hampshire barn in front of their nearest and dearest. Their nearest and dearest AND an incredible flower wall by the lovely Lynz at The White Horse Flower co I might add!
The barn was laid out with a double aisle either side of the chairs to Rachael & Steph could both experience the special moment of their Dad’s walking them down the aisle, before both meeting each other in front the registrars. The barn was alive with flowers, Lynz did the most fantastic job as always and I can’t even describe how wonderful the whole venue smelled as a result. After the ceremony, Rach & Steph were welcomed outside by their guests to a sword and hockey arch before walking through a sea of confetti.
The weather was perfect so guests were able to enjoy canapes and games on the lawns whilst we wandered around the grounds taking couples shots. The sun gods smiled on us in the evening too with a beautiful golden sunset, so of course we took full advantage.
Rach & Steph; your wedding was a wonderful as you both are, thank you so, so much for having Emma and I along, we loved every minute.
