OMG!!! What a fabulous location and what a day...Ashley wood Farm is simply divine and a photographers dream venue. Ample parking with only a small walk to the farm, which is set in a small courtyard with the main barn directly in front of you as you walk in...
The day started with a bit of bridal prep with Jasmine and her family, which was all nice and relaxed, and when Jasmine put that dress on she looked amazing! The ceremony was a lovely affair and was over before we knew it, but being outside just made it feel that little bit more special!!! Oh and the violinist was brilliant!!! We then moved on for pimms and nibbles followed by some group photography. As the sun was beating down onto the barn doors i decided to not have everyone squinting and horrible shadows, but move the groups with the sun behind them and use the main farm house as the cack drop, which is also very stunning indeed!!The ice cream man who turned up was in high demand with some little ones having quite a few ice creams, hopefully didn't spoil their meal though!!!!
Meal and speeches were just great and everything ran like clockwork with a good team in the backroom delivering some amazing food! During the meal i was able to get a few tables out for some table group photography which is always very popular and we also have a giggle too!!!
A surf simulator provided lots of entertainment for those partaking and those just watching, best fall of the day certainly goes to Harlon!!! (great back flip!!!) There was even a photo booth
That moved swiftly onto the first dance, the band were excellent and lots of dancing then ensued which is always great for some groups. While all this was happening, there was also a hog roast being served so i certainly think everyone was well catered for including the open bar too!!!!
Ashley Wood Farm is certainly a wedding venue that i would love to visit again
