Lovely Barn setting and amazing food!
Wedding photographer Clock Barn
Wedding Photographer Clock Barn – Clock Barn wedding venue is now one of the top barn venues in the country. This means that, like many barn venues, Clock Barn is set within acres of countryside. This lends itself to wonderful views whatever the weather. You have lots of space to play with here which means you can alter the layout so it never feels too large or too small. It’s one of my favourite places to work at as a wedding photographer. I love being a wedding photographer at Clock Barn.
Wedding Photographer Clock Barn, Hampshire
If you have less than 50 attending your wedding day, there is The Stable Room. It’s a cosy space with a large fire place at one end. High ceilings and a view over the courtyard and the newly refurbished farmhouse. The main part of the barn is already set up for the wedding breakfast. This means you have time in the morning to set up decorations and add your own personal touches to the venue.
For larger weddings there is the main part of the barn which can be set up in a variety of seating layouts and you can style the room to reflect your personalities. Once the ceremony is over the team do an amazing job to turn the room around for the wedding breakfast. You still have plenty of space, indoors and outside, to mingle with friends and enjoy your day.
What sets this venue apart from other barn venues I’ve photographed is the amazing food from Galloping Gourmet. It really is the best I’ve tasted at any wedding venue. (You have to try their Scotch Egg (Yes really!) and the Beef). The other strength of this venue is their organisation and professionalism. It’s quite natural for couples to worry about the “what if’s”. You really don’t have to with Clock Barn. Being a recommended supplier, I’ve photographed many weddings here and everyone works hard to keep your day running smoothly. In the unlikely event of a hitch, it’s dealt with using the minimum of fuss and you’re back on track. This means you can kick back and get on with enjoying your special day.

It’s lovely when the weather gives you the perfect summer wedding. Ideal for wedding photography!
Vicki and Warren’s summer wedding was held at Clock Barn. It is surrounded by some wonderful Hampshire countryside. I’m lucky enough to be a recommended supplier so know the area well.
With the weather so lovely and warm, windows and doors can stay open to let in the breeze as Vicki got ready in the Lavender Barn nearby. Friends and family have the surrounding lawns and lots of open space to mingle and enjoy the day. The large barn itself can stay cool. It all lends itself to a warm friendly and relaxed day. It was lovey to see their daughters getting in on the action as bridesmaids. It’s also a massive day for them too, to see Mum and Dad get married.
After the ceremony it’s time to enjoy the day with friends and family outside and take some pictures of just the two of them in a nearby field. Then, while they enjoy the food (Lovingly made by Galloping Gourmet), myself and my assistant stay in the background to capture the fun and emotion of their day.
I love Autumn!
Being lucky enough to live just down the road from Clock Barn, I get to see nature change into these glorious reds and yellows. The low light can pick out, and shine through the leaves, it’s just marvellous!
At Sara and Michael’s autumn wedding we had the most amazing low light! Taking a natural approach to my wedding photography, we walked up the road, stopping off to take shots and chatting as we did so. We were blessed with the most amazing light and trees in full autumn colour. My favourite image is one I saw just by chance. A shaft of sunlight was coming through the hedge and lighting up the tree. Standing Sara and Michael there in those last dying moments of the sunset!
Alix and James’s Clock Barn wedding photography and photofilm.
I am lucky enough to be one of the recommended suppliers at Clock Barn in Hampshire. This means I get to photograph a fair few weddings there. It’s a venue I genuinely love to work in… oh and it’s only a 12 minute drive from my studio!
At the time of writing, it hasn’t been the driest of winters. This is when having a professional wedding photography is invaluable. A wedding photographer has many years of experience. He/ she will know what to do if the weather is not ideal. For Alix and James’s wedding, I invested in a cool piece of photography kit. This gave a few of the indoor shots that contemporary look which is so popular on many magazine covers.
Of course it was also such a fun day. James’s speech had everyone in stitches and everyone really enjoyed themselves. To me, that’s one of the key elements to capturing the fun and romance of a wedding day. In our pre wedding photography meetings, I always advise couples, in the nicest way, to ignore the wedding photographer and just enjoy themselves. That allows us to stay in the background and capture those special moments.
As one of the few photographers who also include a PhotoFilm in their wedding photography service, it is another for you to re-live the wonderful atmosphere of a wedding day.

Katy and Nick.
I genuinely enjoy getting a booking for Clock Barn.
It’s the kind of venue that lends itself well to someone’s special day. Lots of room inside and out. When I meet a couple after the wedding, to view their wedding photos there’s lots of talk and funny stories about their day.
From a wedding photography prospective, we get a lot of fun natural images showing friends and family enjoying every minute of their time. Being surrounded by the Hampshire countryside, there were numerous places where we spent a few moments with Katy and Nick enjoying the fun and romance their wedding day.
Sarah and Richard.
When I meet couples for the first time, most are a little apprehensive about how they should “act” in front of the camera. In fact, I have only had one couple who oozed confidence when we talked about being photographed on their wedding day. My advice is simple; enjoy your day and we will capture the moments.
We had a lovely time with Sarah and Richard. Even a little rain before the ceremony didn’t dampen the day. Like most couples, they didn’t want to spend ages being “posed” for photographs. A walk around the grounds of the Clock Barn was just perfect to get the natural images they wanted.
“Before the big day Darren was completely flexible and receptive to our ideas, which made him stand out. This made him particularly easy to work with during a high stress time. He took time to understand exactly what we wanted and then offered suggestions which helped enormously, and came up with some really artistic ideas.
He was fun and easy to work with on the day and stayed unobtrusive. He was also flexible to our changes plans on the day itself.
We expected a long wait to see the shots but we were pleasantly surprised to see the pictures quite soon afterwards. When we did they easily exceeded our expectations and continue to give us much pleasure. We love the photos, especially some taken on the way to reception and they are a fantastic memento of the day.
Darren comes highly recommended.”
