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.

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

ahh what a BEAUTIFUL winter wedding Carleh & Vinnie had in Salisbury this December! I’m always delighted when someone books me to shoot at a venue I’ve not visited before, so when Carleh & Vinnie told me about The Medieval Hall and an old converted church called St John’s Place, you could say I was rather excited. Both venues are seeped in history and personality, and absolutely perfect for a cosy, winter wedding with twinkly fairy lights and candles.
The Medieval Hall is right next to Salisbury Cathedral, so after the ceremony we popped outside to wander round the grounds taking some couple photos. All the guests headed off to St John’s Place where they waited for us to arrive with confetti ready and poised, before everyone tucked in to a hearty meal of pie and mash – best wedding food ever!
What a gorgeous winter wedding, thank you so much for choosing me to photograph your fabulous day. Thank you too to Clare who second shot for me, some of these photos are hers.
