10 “Must Do” Shots For Your Wedding Photos 5632 3755 Sally

It’s a feeling repeated by almost all those in the know; your wedding day goes so fast! So if you’ve not yet made it down the aisle, then of course you’re excited about getting some stunning shots to capture the memories of your special day. It’s only natural that of course you’ll want to relive the moments.

And because photos are forever, it’s important to get them right! 

If you haven’t yet thought about the kind of photos you want, now’s the time! And if you need a little help to understand how to get the most from the opportunity, then you’ll want to read our guide here too.

No doubt you’ll want a mix of different styles, locations, and people, with some candid shots and fun shots as well as the traditional posed bridal party portraits. And it might also be your style to have a photographer capturing the preparations before the big moment too?

Maybe you want them all? That’s a lot to get done in the small amount of time between saying “I Do” and “Let’s Get the Party Started”! #challengeaccepted

So how do you make it happen? And is it possible to get all of your preferred shots in one session, from a single venue, without having to go off-site, and maybe even do it all with a cocktail in hand?




Well we might be biased, but we think it is! But don’t just take our word for it. You only need to spend a few moments scrolling the #THBwedding and #TowerHillBarns tags on Instagram to see that many of our past couples and their photographers think so too!

With fairy lights and candles literally everywhere giving off a laid-back luxury vibe, we’ve more than a few totally Instagram-worthy spaces and one-of-a-kind locations onsite. Which means rain, hail, or shine, the perfect photo opportunity is never far away.

So if you and your photographer are keen to get “the one”, then check out this selection of some of our favourite on-site lush photo locations here at Tower Hill Barns. From wildflower meadows to our historic old railway bridge, you’ll find the perfect built-in backdrop for your wedding photos. So be sure to bookmark it, keep it handy, and of course, share with your photographer!
