When Michelle, the event planner from Yarnton Manor, got in touch to see if I’d be interested in getting involved in a photo shoot at the Manor – I obviously jumped at the chance.

Yarnton Manor is a fairly new wedding venue, based in Yarnton, just outside Oxford.  What I really love about this Oxfordshire wedding venue is that it comes with a lot of accommodation, making it the perfect place to host a massive house party (aka wedding) in the country, but in someone else’s house! (Their words not mine!!) Michelle and her team have a very relaxed approach, which means your wedding is in this amazing grand house, but without the stuffy formalities.

Shooting here was a dream, the main hall was filled with two super long trellis tables, styled so beautifully and ready for a fest.  The massive windows let in floods of light – which is a photographers dream!  There’s a piano on the first floor landing which we couldn’t resist photographing, and then we ventured outside to shoot the outdoor ceremony area, oh yes – you can have an outdoor ceremony here!
