What better way to exchange your vows than in a beautiful 400 year old barn. Situated in Southport, Meols Hall is a little over an hour away from Manchester. The venue offers a large courtyard, a coachhouse perfect for hosting drinks as well as the wedding barn for the reception. Couples will be spoilt for choice with the stunning grounds and woodland for having photos. It really is the perfect setting and I’ve always loved photographing weddings here.

Looking for an authentic farm wedding venue? Thornsett Fields Farm is the ideal place set on the outskirts of the Peak District and less than an hour away from Manchester.
Although this venue is fairly new on the wedding scene, the farm has everything you need for a relaxed reception. Added bonus of being on a working farm… farm animals of course! Couples have the chance to meet baby chicks, lambs and their famous resident sheep, Mabel, who loves being in photos.

Located within the Forest of Bowland, Wyresdale Park is such a charming venue that you’ll be dying to book a visit! The venue consists of 3 barns, hosting the full day from ceremony until dancing, a glamping site of bell tents for guests and a beautiful lakeside view.
The white barn is an ideal blank canvas for any colour scheme, with hanging festoon lights and a balcony for extra guests. What I love most about this venue are the amazing grounds and opportunities for photos. Take a walk through the woodland, visit the greenhouse cafe or check out the beautiful scenery across the lake. Not to be missed!
