If you go down to the woods today you are in for a big surprise, If you go down to the woods today you’d wish that you were the bride. Because this stunning woodland themed, festival styled shoot, offers a colourful window into what is on offer for brides wanting to retreat to the great outdoors and bond with friends and family somewhere a little different like The Barn At Lees Farm. Heart warming details such as blankets and marshmallows over a fire pit, alongside gorgeous flower crowns created from your very own bespoke workshop with Gilly…Just perfect for The Outside Bride!

Gilly Says “The idea for the shoot was born from an idea that Emma and I had, to offer Brides and their ‘I Do’ crew the opportunity to escape from the world and have their own little celebration at the little piece of heaven that is The Barn At Lees Farm. So Bespoke For Brides, Hens and Good Friends at The Barn At Lees Farm was born. Nestled in the woods in the depths of Ironbridge, Shropshire Emma took the ruins of a barn and lovingly restored it along with The Annex and The Yurt and is an AirB&B Super host with glowing reviews.


Brides, Hens or just good friends are able to enjoy an overnight stay in The Annex and The Yurt with wood fired hot-tubs, a fire pit to sit under the stars and fairy lights, wrapped in blankets toasting marshmallows and enjoy High Tea, homemade Elderflower cordial made from Elderflowers collected from the woods around the The Barn and of course fizz! “

A massive thank you to all the talented independent suppliers who took part in this truly inspiring styled shoot, and for sharing it with The Outside Bride.
