Located super close to my humble abode, this venue offers rustic elegance with a touch of drama. Picture yourself in a beautifully lit barn, snuggled up on a winter’s evening. And let’s not forget about the delicious food, there’s even an option for guests to be given aprons and hats so that they can carve their own meat at the table.
I LOVE that there’s plenty of great photo locations whatever the weather, including a Mediterranean styled courtyard, Festoon lighting and huge windows that flood the barn with beautiful natural light.

THE COWSHED AT WOODHALL FARM
If rustic beauty is what you seek, look no further, this 18th century Cowshed is super cute. Surrounded by enchanting woods, this venue offers a stunning outdoor ceremony location. On top of that, it is completely DIY. The wedding I shot here previously booked a cool vintage caravan bar outside the barn to keep your guests refreshed.
