Wedding Photography

Liaising with our Wedding Planner, you are welcome to use the grounds, the farm and the farmhouse gardens for your photography. We have a number of recommended photographers who have worked with us before and know the place well and they can help you get the best from your location whether it be under the rambling rose on the farmhouse wall, by the Fairy Bridge or taken with one of our vintage tractors in the farm yard. Situated in 360 acres of Lancashire organic farmland, we have some dramatic back-drops – you could have your photos taken in the orchard, or amongst our stunning mature trees. You might want to have some taken on ‘The Fairy Bridge’, overlooking Pendle Hill, or even in the hay barn.  It’s completely up to you!
