A Boho Inspired Wedding Shoot At Bashall Barn In Lancashire!!
Bashall Barn is a relatively new wedding venue which is fast becoming a firm favourite with Lancashire and Yorkshire brides and grooms to be and wedding photographers, and I can totally see why. It is a converted barn on a completely working farm, you can see the cows being milked, consume the freshly homemade ice-cream and sample the venue’s own brewed beer, how amazing is that!! And, of course if you are getting married here, then you have to have portraits within the cow sheds or just outside, I think this is one of the main reasons people book to have their wedding here, for the cow shed portrait!
Bashall Barn has recently undergone a major transformation, adding the Bashall Brook room and the amazing terrace to make a fully purpose built wedding area that is completely away from the general public. The terrace is absolutely breathing taking, it is huge and has open views of the Ribble Valley, quite possibly one of the nicest portrait locations ever, fact. There are plans to add a bridal suite to the building and I can’t wait to see what this will look like!
Styled Shoot Time!
Back in July 2018 I shot my first styled shoot at this lovely venue, after weeks of creating mood boards and taking inspiration from Pinterest, meetings with various suppliers, the shoot day was upon us, it all came together and truly did not disappoint. With three gorgeous models, the sun shinning all day long I knew Bashall was going to create some amazing backdrops. I took the models for some individual portraits and took some close up detail shots of the beautiful dresses, bouquets and table set up. The flowers and tables had been styled with lots of foliage, peach and cream tones, alongside a naked cake with fresh flowers, the room looked gorgeous!
My photography style is very relaxed and I shoot the same whether its at a styled shoot or a wedding, always looking for the natural moments, and generally keeping the whole session laid back. We always go for a walk around the venue, on the day of the shoot the sun was so bright that it made perfect sense to use the terrace for most of the portraits. The blue sky against our model’s flower crown and laid back groom in a grey tweed bow tie and waistcoat looked fabulous! After some lunch (provided by Bashall - thank you x), we headed out for more portraits with all three models, and then I took some further images of the table centrepieces and individual bouquets.
A gorgeous shoot on a beautiful day! I can not wait to be back at Bashall, for this year I will be back twice in the summer! If you are getting married in 2020 and 2021 at Bashall Barn and still on the hunt for your wedding photographer, then send me a message, I can’t wait to photograph your special day!
Here are my favourite images from the shoot, and if you are looking for a supplier team who will get just as excited about your wedding plans, then check out the list below - all amazing and friends of mine!
