Ashcroft Barn frontage

We were invited to Ashcroft Barn to help capture a unique styled shoot, as they begin to promote themselves as a barn wedding and event venue. Their plants to make 2020 their inaugural wedding season were sadly thwarted (thanks COVID).

The Barn

The Barn is located in Ashton Keynes, a small village in Wiltshire. Situated on a working farm, Ashcroft barn certainly has its charm. With Cotswold stone, high ceilings and large glass entrances at the front and the rear, the barn has an impressive appeal with an incredible amount of natural light inside. The barn is spacious with plenty of reclaimed pieces and furnishings. There really is a rustic theme throughout.

 

Decor

Dressings for the shoot were supplied by Hospitality Services 24/7 and eucalyptus events. Complementing the decor, the beautiful floral arrangements from Aqua florist added spectacular, autumnal shades and added real impact.

The Birds

And of course, the stars of the show, Koby and Billie. 2 Exceptionally beautiful owls, masterfully handled by Apollo Falconry. Ring bearer Billie has a mischievous side, taking her time to explore the surroundings while stopping for a little game of hide and seek in the rafters. Credit where its due, Billie performed her duties wonderfully. Attached in a little pouch, Billie flew straight down the aisle to deliver the rings (provided by Deacons Jewellers) to our groom.

 

Koby

Koby certainly is one to turn heads. With a mighty wingspan and an intense stare, he sat proudly on our model’s arms. Perfectly calm, focused and gentle. A truly magnificent bird. To see owls up close is a rare treat. Once I will remember for a very long time.

 

 

Koby the Owl

Massive credit to our Models Katy and Henry, dressed by Victoria Marie Bridal, styled by Kate Kelvin hair and make up. They looked sensational. Thanks for being so agreeable with our posing. You smashed it. Thanks also to the fantastic and friendly Stu Jotham Photography for being equally cooperative and also nailing the shoot.

The majority of weddings are halted for now and there is much uncertainty in there air. It was refreshing to spend a nice day, meeting some incredible suppliers, in a new venue, doing what we love the most. An amazing day. A wonderful venue. Naturally, I can’t wait to come back.
