Bashall Barn is an incredible venue in the Ribble Valley and it was my first time coming back to this fantastic venue since they have opened up their new bridal suite. I really enjoying photographing Hope and her bridesmaids in the morning before catching up with Tim and his groomsmen as they arrived at Bashall Barn. Tim arrived and soon after guests started to arrive and it was time for the service. once wed it was time for the drinks reception. Everyone had a great time regardless of the fact it absolutely hammered it down with rain all day. I am delighted to share this sneak peek of their wedding and guys enjoy your honeymoon!
Couples portraits at Bashall Barn
It was. a bit of a wet day today for Hope & Tims wedding so the majority of the day was spent inside or on the veranda over looking the Ribble Valley. We did manage to go outside in the rain for a few minutes, which was all we needed. It’s always great when your couple are happy to go outside whatever the weather.
Evening wedding party at Bashall Barn
After the fantastic speeches it was time for the wedding breakfast before the traditional cutting of the cake, father daughter dance and of course the first dance. Then the party started and DJ and wedding host Ryan Smith was on hand and the dance floor was great fun with some outstanding music the guests were loving it. The day for me finished with a little creative off camera flash shot on the veranda as it was absolutely hammering it down with rain!
All in all a great emotional, fun and perfect wedding for Hope & Tim and I am delighted to have been part of their wedding day!

Bashall Barn Useful Information:
Whats the history behind Bashall Barn?
Bashall Barn actually opened in 2001 as a little local farm shop on a dairy farm. A family owned and run business, it has evolved over the years from a shop, which still exists in form today, to a tea room, then a restaurant and then eventually a wedding venue! It’s actually in the past few years, since we opened the Brook room in 2017, that people have started to take us seriously as a wedding venue. We are still very much a family business, our owner Simon and his daughter both work here, I don’t think they’ll ever leave!
What would you say makes Bashall Barn unique?
I’d have to say the views! I don’t know many places with a view like ours. It’s the perfect backdrop for your ceremony, drinks reception and those all important photos. (Rebecca, wedding coordinator, Bashall Barn)
Whats your biggest tips for couples getting married?
Be flexible with dates! Gone are the days where you could only get married on weekends, we find some of our best weddings are Fridays or even mid week, you might even save yourself a penny or two! (Rebecca, wedding coordinator, Bashall Barn)
Whats your most popular wedding package?
Now we do things a little differently here at Bashall, we don’t charge venue hire, or for things like your table cloths and glassware, you’ve got to have something to eat your food off right? This is actually the first year where we’ve launched packages but they do seem to be going down a treat. I’d probably say our winter wedding package has been the most popular so far, there’s a gin bar included so that’s probably why! (Rebecca, wedding coordinator, Bashall Barn)
