Stunning relaxed images based on elegance and luxury...

“Our aim was to capture stunning relaxed images based on elegance and luxury, whilst set amongst the traditional beauty of a rustic and natural barn environment in the countryside. Each talented vendor interpreted a touch of luxury within their own display. Whether that was streams of flowing velvet ribbon on the stunning whimsical, hand tied bouquet, gold wax seals on luxurious velum paper menus, or crystal wine glasses with glistening gold cutlery throughout the table styling, for increased textures and impact. The hair styling was perfectly crafted with the theme of movement and flowing textures through the braiding, and gorgeous styling throughout the venue was created using reusable products, from bespoke cotton Ombre napkins to the light enhancing perspex seating features.

Hanbury Wedding Barn is an exceptionally green venue. With two dedicated ecological preserves, this a venue that gives back to its magnificent surroundings, and that’s exactly what we wanted to explore where possible. The delicious gin and elderflower cake was produced by Green Union member ‘Bake Pod,’ hand selected for her efforts to switch to bamboo dowels, using 100% recycled favour packaging, and swapping her electronic cooking devices to 100% renewable resources.

Make Up Artist Harper was using cruelty free and vegan friendly products only, and Grazing Platters served delicious local produce on reusable wooden boards, whilst providing bamboo plates for guests to enjoy their platter from.”


“Set amongst golden fields of wheat swaying elegantly in the breeze on the approach to the Barns, the style brief was to capture relaxed yet luxurious images, inspired by the stunning countryside settings as a theme of whimsical inspiration. A combination of gorgeous fabrics with flowing movement and texture, against the traditional features of a once working farm barn, were complemented beautifully by some of the most glamorous Badgley Mischka Bridal gowns, and of course, the crystal and feather classic d’orsay style Jimmy Choos.

We wanted to inspire brides with a contemporary style and seasonal colours, against the original features of brick work and timber beams, with a strong message that barn venues are the perfect blanc canvas for creativity and luxury.”


“Relaxed, rustic and stylish, Hanbury Wedding Barn opened their doors for the first time in June 2019, and it really doesn’t disappoint! These bright and beautiful barns, set in the heart of the National Forest, have been lovingly restored especially with wedding celebrations in mind.

The venue is family run and features an elegant red brick ceremony barn with exposed timber frames, an outdoor ceremony pavilion overlooking a stunning lake, a spacious courtyard and a welcoming wedding breakfast room. It is the perfect place to begin married life with your family and friends.”
