Rustic and contemporary wedding venue in Clitheroe


The Out Barn at Clough Bottom is a picturesque family owned barn wedding venue in the heart of the Ribble Valley, in Clitheroe, Lancashire. The venue is renowned for its idyllic setting and beautiful countryside views of Pendle Hill beyond their very own wild flower meadow. The 17th century traditional stone built barn brings its own character to your wedding day but the blank canvas of the elliptical shaped function room with floor to ceiling windows brings together nature and elegance which is the perfect space for rustic and contemporary style weddings.

Whether you’re planning a rustic themed autumnal wedding or a fun filled outdoor summer wedding in the wild flower meadow, The Out Barn provides endless possibilities to really allow you to make your wedding feel personal and unique to you! I love documenting weddings as I see every wedding as a brand new love story. This stunning wedding venue really allows your creative wedding dreams to come to life.



5 reasons why I LOVE photographing weddings at The Out Barn


1. The natural and relaxed atmosphere perfectly marries up with the outdoor spaces for you and your guests to celebrate on your wedding day.

2. The wildflower meadow overlooking Pendle Hill and the hidden fairy bridge are amazing spots for your wedding photographs.

3. The family and staff create the most welcoming atmosphere for your wedding day.

4. The floor to ceiling windows in the modern function room are the perfect backdrop for your ceremony and reception. The evening lighting also transforms this magical space at night time!

5. The Old Dairy Cottage and The Clough Bottom Farmhouse mean you can have your whole wedding day in one location.

These are amazing!!! Currently sat in Kenya crying at how amazing these photos are! Thank you so much for capturing our day so perfectly!!

Picture perfect locations for your wedding photographs at the out barn

There’s so many amazing spaces for awesome wedding photographs! The venue really shows off in different ways through the different seasons too! One of my favourite spaces is the wild flower meadow, especially as you have a perfect view of Pendle Hill in the background. As the seasons change you’ll see the colourful meadow turn golden which is equally as inspiring. The hidden fairy bridge is also one of the most magical spots for awesome wedding photographs. Taking the short walk to this hidden haven allows you as newlyweds to have some time just for you on your wedding day too, which is something I would most definitely recommend. Lastly is my favourite time of day, golden hour! This is usually around one hour before sunset where the sun is lower in the sky which creates the most beautiful romantic golden light for stunning wedding photographs all year round.

Wedding Day Bridal Preparations at the Out Barn

I love to document weddings from beginning to end. By starting photographic coverage at bridal preparations and capturing all the moments right through until you’re partying on the dance floor I can really tell the true story of your wedding day in the most relaxed way. The Clough Bottom Farmhouse which you may recognise from the Hairy Bikers is a gorgeous 17th century stone built farmhouse located less than a few minutes drive from the wedding barn. Containing 6 Bedrooms this means you and your full bridal party can start your wedding celebrations the night before tucked away in the gorgeous Ribble Valley. If you’d prefer a quieter morning there’s also the modern Old Dairy cottage, a cosy open plan cottage just a stroll away.

Civil wedding ceremonies and wedding receptions in the Oval Barn

Licensed for civil wedding ceremonies the stone floored modern barn extension with floor to ceiling windows is flooded with light for a beautiful marriage ceremony. Overlooking the picturesque Ribble Valley creating a stunning backdrop for you to say “I do”. As you enjoy your drinks reception in the stunning lawns or in the cosy warmth of the barn the elliptical shaped function room is transformed into a modern dining space for your wedding reception. One of my favourite features is that all day long you and your wedding guests have a continued view of the amazing location which feels so tranquil. As the night draws in the magic continues as the atmospheric lighting transforms the space into a modern dance floor for you to party the night away to your favourite music.


Wow… what can we say! 
This is amazing and we have watched it about 6/7 times already! 
Thank you so much for capturing the moments, I’ve balled my eyes out (Katie) watching the sheer fun and happiness on everyone’s faces and especially during Covid times is pretty precious and we will hold these closest to our hearts forever! 
We knew from the moment we met that we had picked the right photographer, what an amazing person you are and photographer for that matter!
