Hidden in the rolling Dorset hills, not far from the sea, Hope Farm is as close to rural perfection as you might find for a wedding. A working farm surrounded by rare breed sheep and Alpacas, with a barn lovingly transformed by Sue and the family into a contemporary yet rustic reception venue, beautifully lit with natural light.  So when Vicky and Dan asked me to photograph their wedding, as a Dorset based wedding photographer, I simply could not refuse. Wedding venues such as this fit my style perfectly, and having everything in one place, with no need to travel, makes for such a relaxing day.

Hope Farm incorporates the coach house, beautiful accomodation which leads straight out in to the ceremony area, Hope Barn itself for the reception, a shepherds hut, and perfectly designed games and activity spaces. As the sun sets, the venue is transformed in to a cosy rural treat under the stars, with benches and fire pits. Hope Farm navigates perfectly the marriage of working farm with contemporary and stylish wedidng venue.
