Chalk is located near Rushall in central Wiltshire, surrounded by organic farmland and unbeatable views. With Devizes to the West, Marlborough to the North, and Amesbury to the South we are in a beautifully secluded position yet still easily accessible from London, and a gateway to the South West. We have parking for up to 100 cars and we can also accept arrival via helicopter by prior arrangement.
The Day Before
At Chalk, we always include the day prior to your wedding within your booking with us as standard. Whether you have more of a hands-on approach or a wedding team to help you set up, the barn is yours for the day to decorate, dress, and perfect. This means you’ll have the morning of your wedding to relax and enjoy. The Chalk Team, ever-present, will be there to assist in any way and help coordinate your suppliers ensuring that every last detail is just as you envisioned it.
Your wedding ceremony
Whether you choose to say your vows in the beautiful barn with its panoramic views, or outdoors on the infinity lawn, you will say ‘I do’ with the stunning views of the Wiltshire countryside as the backdrop to your ceremony.
There are also many picturesque churches close by for religious ceremonies and blessings. The characterful small village churches of Rushall, Upavon, and Charlton St. Peter are perfect for intimate ceremonies, and St.John the Baptist church can accommodate much larger gatherings in nearby Pewsey.
Your Wedding Reception
Yours to decorate as you wish, Chalk Barn is the ultimate blank canvas for your wedding celebration.
From a stylish, seated wedding breakfast in the barn with its breath-taking views, to a boho-chic festival style celebration on the lawn, the possibilities are endless.

Hi! I am Phil. From a young age I was always fascinated with cameras, as I got older the more advanced the cameras became. My first camera experience was my parents Kodak Ektralite when I was 5, a simple point and shoot but I loved the long rectangle shape and cool leather case. Taking a photo was always a anti climax as all it did was click but the anticipation I felt knowing that when we went to get the film developed we would receive back frozen moments in time and I have no doubt that this is what’s always fascinated me with photography.
Documentary wedding photographer for the most adventurous and artsy couples across the South West and worldwide. I pride myself on keeping things natural and low-key—capturing all of those little moments with a distinctive filmic style and a dollop of dramatic light. Raw emotions, candid moments, epic backdrops and a banging dance floor is my jam.
With over 10 years experience my photography tells your wedding day story creating those perfect memories for you to look back upon for so many years to come. I love capturing the special moments, allowing the day to unfold naturally. Remaining in the background photographing all the details that make your day unique, whilst my calm and friendly nature brings out the best in you and your guests for those all-important portrait shots. Having grown up locally to Chalk Barn, I have an intimate knowledge of the venue and its grounds. It is one of my favourite venues to work at for locations, light and creating stunning wedding images.
When it comes to shooting your wedding, my approach and style is fairly laid-back. I like to capture your day as it unfolds, with little direction, which means you can feel relaxed and at ease in front of the camera. I always find it hard to put a label on myself as a wedding photographer but if I had to describe the way I shoot I would probably say I’m more of a documentary style photographer; I like to capture moments as and when they happen and tell the story of your day naturally.
I adore capturing love. I want to show your connection. If you hate being in front of the camera then I am the person for you. I make you laugh and giggle to capture those genuine emotions. It's really important that you celebrate with your loved ones as it’s your wedding day and not a photoshoot so we keep things really relaxed. I want to tell your love story so when you look back on these images in years to come you are instantly transported back to the most incredible day. I am not content to be just a supplier. I want to create a meaningful experience for you and of course give you beautiful images that you will love, forever.
I rely on all those beautiful authentic moments to really capture your story. The ones that will really mean the most. So my best advice is to pretend I'm not there, Be true to yourselves. Laugh like no one is watching and happy tears are always welcome here.
If you're looking for somebody who will be as excited about YOU getting married as you are - you have just found one! I'm your personal cheerleader and your guide through the wedding universe. But most of all, I have one job – to capture both of YOU on your wedding day in most authentic, relaxed way… and have some fun while doing that.
I can’t begin to explain how important it is for you to choose a wedding photographer who makes you feel comfortable, at ease and brings out that bellyaching laughter. If you want these qualities then I’m your gal! Not only will I make you feel comfortable, I will also interact with your family and friends as if they were my own capturing the good, the great and the “outtakes”.
