Silchester farm is a simply stunning new venue, hidden away in the rolling Hampshire Countryside. Created as a contemporary location for exclusive luxury wedding hire, Silchester Farm still maintaining oodles of rural charm. I’ve had my eye on photographing weddings here for a while, so when Alex and Zak asked me to shoot their winter wedding, it was most definitely a yes from me! Alex and Zak went for a black tie theme, which perfectly suited the season, and gave the wedding a real touch of class.

Just a week before Christmas, we were blessed with some incredible winter light, and frosty conditions, my absolute favourite!

As the evening drew in, everyone moved to the warm and cosy barn with it’s comfy button back sofas, and roaring log fire. What a beautiful place Silchester Farm is.

Historic Silchester farm

The threshing barn has been beautifully restored, with the oak beams providing a warm and cosy shelter with plenty of light. The open barn provides plenty of shelter, which means there is always daylight for portraits whatever the weather, and the cow shed is one of the most amazing reception spaces I have seen, with polished concrete floors, warm colours and bare bulb lighting giving a real edgy, yet homely feel. The gardens and pond, surrounded by the beautiful willow, will just get better and better over time.

If you are getting married at Silchester Farm please get in touch, I’d love to talk about your plans! I’ve now shot quite a few weddings at the farm, ranging from the coldest winter days to the peak of a summer heatwave, Silchester is perfect at any time of year.
