Poplars Farm Wedding Photographer


It was such a privilege to be invited to photograph at Poplars Farm. Normally the wedding venues I photograph are situated all over the country but to have a wedding location so close was a real treat. I have been able to select a few of my favourite images from my first visit to The Old Cow Shed from Erin & John’s Leicestershire wedding. Are you booked for Poplars Farm? I’d love to hear about your plans and talk through your ideas. 


Set on the North eastern side of Leicester in the heart of the countryside, as the name of the venue states this newly renovated, rustic barn offers everything you could wish for for multiple types of wedding styles. If you are planning a festival wedding, the stunning tipi set out on the rear lawn of the farm sets the perfect location for you to celebrate in a party style. Alternatively, the other on-site option it to have an indoor wedding in what used to be the old cow sheds of the farm! And finally, the flexibility of the venue allows for larger church ceremonies at the local church,St Marys in Melton Mowbray. St Marys church is the largest in the area and hosts the annual Christmas tree festival which is a joy for the town. 

As a professional photographer working at the incredible Poplars Farm in the summer is an absolute joy; the wrap around sunsets, the outdoor dance floor and the evening food really help to keep the party going right into the night.  

This is incredible!

Erin & John contacted me only last year to tell me all about their extraordinary wedding plans for the awesome Old Cow Shed which is a new(ish) venue right on my door step! This super relaxed, modern and colourful couple really did choose a venue which matched their vibe and their style. Having their two beautiful girls as flower girls this made the children really excited for the wedding and happy to model for the camera. 

The day for me seemed a little strange, having a wedding literally a stones throw a way from my house so I arrived early and captured extra bridal preparations of Erin and the bridesmaids/children ands able to have a good look around this super venue to plan my ideas for the day. Upon returning to the bridal. party, the champagne was flowing, laughter could be heard from the courtyard and the games had begun! The dress itself was hung in the master honeymoon suite window allowing it to de-crease whilst Erins. choice of 3 veils were hanging over the beautiful wooden beams in the centre of the room. Once preparations were done and Erin was ready the stunning Halo & Wren bridal dress went on. At this point, I went down to the ceremony room to get some images of the wedding party and make sure that John was remaining calm amongst all of the hype and build up that the day had brought. Erins arrive was classy and her dad was so proud to be walking her down to John for the ceremony to begin. The ceremony itself was rather short but full of fun and laughter, with Erin correcting the registrar on punctuation of her name!

Following the formalities of the day, the party didn’t take long to begin. Beer pong was a strong favourite, having two tables and Hooch as the games drinks of choice. Food was just to die for, with the incredible Thomas the caterer offering up steak and chips with pepper sauce and a dreamy chocolate brownie desert. Into the evening after the beer pong had taken control of most of the guests, we were treated to a gorgeous rendition of ‘Girl on Fire’ from the bride and grooms daughter Elsie which melted everyones heart. The party went on late into the night under the canopy tent and I believe lots of alcohol was consumed along the way…
