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.

McGIvern Photography

Originally from the West Country, we are photography brothers Olli & Harvey. Whilst we mostly take a laid back, reportage approach, what we love more than anything is to get in close and capture the fun and emotion of those moments when people let their guard down, from a friends and family perspective.

RJ Photography logo

Rachel Jane Photography

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.

From bouquets to hanging installations, our florists work alongside the Chalk team to create a unique and personal style for your day.
