Bashall Barn Wedding Photography
All I can say is I love being a wedding photographer. I get to meet and photograph some brilliant people at some fantastic wedding venues. Bashall Barn was the choice of venue for Lisa and Danny who wanted a relaxed & fun wedding.
Bashall Barn is an exclusive hire venue for every Bride and Groom with no hire charges; all food is locally produced on site especially for you and a fully stocked bar licensed until 12.30pm. It’s the perfect place to accommodate 50-130 seated guests for your wedding breakfast and up to 250 guests for your evening reception. You can also enjoy a wood fired pizzas, a hog roast or a buffet.

The bride and groom had a fantastic day at Bashall Barn and I can’t wait to return, it was one of the best drinks receptions I have ever photographed at a wedding. The fact the gin bar went dry after 90 minutes is no surprise. Here’s a selection of wedding photos from Bashall Barn in the Ribble Valley.
What the bride said about Andy Griffiths Photography at Bashall Barn
“Choosing the right wedding photographer was a really difficult decision. We knew we wanted some traditional photos throughout the day but didn’t want to be taken off for ages and miss the party!! Andy was 100% the right choice- in fact, I’d say that he made the wedding day for us. Before the day, he met with us twice and discussed in loads of detail the approach he would take on the day. He was completely flexible with us and was happy to accommodate all of our requests- he even brought along a second photographer on the day to ensure we were completey relaxed and happy (the second photographer was a really nice gesture but unnecessary in the end- the photos from Andy are just perfect) I can’t recommend Andy highly enough- from start to finish he was the ultimate professional and the photos of our day are better than we could have ever dreamed of. Along the way, he was funny, relaxed and fit right in with the wedding party! A massive thank you.”
Bridal Preparation before the vows
The day started for me at Lisa’s parents home in Clitheroe, there was some real raw emotion before the wedding service and I was so pleased the bride was comfortable to allow me to capture some beautiful moments, whilst my second shooter Martin (Thanks Martin) joined Danny for groom prep. Lisa and Danny got married at St Peters Church in the Salesbury before heading to Bashall Barn for the reception and wedding breakfast.
Bashall Barn Portraits
Lisa and Danny wanted their wedding day captured in a natural and relaxed style but with a bit more posing during the couples portraits.
This was the perfect mix for this fantastic couple and the photos reflect how fun this wedding was. We spent some time before and after the wedding breakfast taking some photos around the grounds of Bashall Barn – the view of the Ribble Valley is fantastic so we had to make use of it.
It has to be said Bashall Barn is a quirky and brilliantly run venue and one I can’t wait to return to in 2019. Thanks so much for having me, it was a pleasure.
Dancing, drinking and a great wedding party at Bashall Barn.
What a venue Bashall Barn is – the balcony and outside area is the perfect place for wedding guests to enjoy the wedding day, along side this the barn is just beautiful for the wedding breakfast. After the speeches the new Mr and Mrs spent the evening in the sun enjoying drinks and partying the night away with the fantastic Matthew Stephens who was entertaining everyone with his acoustic guitar and singing before getting everyone up on the dance floor. Having literally everyone sing Oasis in any wedding is pretty cool!
