I have photographed three weddings at Sheldon Manor, it is such a beautiful venue for smaller sized weddings. It has a very secluded and special feel to it with interesting features and plenty of history and hideaway corners. The gardens are beautiful to walk around with the pretty flowers, a rustic pool and the dappled shade from the trees near the historic manor itself. It provides the perfect backdrop and there is a very exclusive feel to weddings held there compared to the manufactured feel of many other wedding venues.
For the purposes of photography Sheldon Manor couldn’t be more right. Sheldon Manor’s intimate feel is very conducive to reportage photography and artistic, creative angles. With the natural/historical feel to Sheldon Manor, finding beautiful backdrops for your photography is easy. In fact I could spend a couple of days there with the amount of photographic opportunities on hand. Very much worth a look!

“I lived in London for 11 years and so it was like a breath of fresh air to come down and stay with Lucy in Salisbury. I moved in properly a year before we got married and we quickly got into country life together – Wiltshire is beautiful, and we love exploring it with our dog, Jethro. A country wedding seemed to be the right way to go, and we both knew we had found the perfect venue when we saw Sheldon Manor for the first time. The day couldn’t have been better: the weather was glorious, the venue was spectacular, the service was beautiful and everything went off without a hitch (my wife is exceptionally well organised!) Ross took some great pictures and, as least as far as I am concerned, proved that a good photographer can make a silk purse out of a pig’s ear. It’s difficult to take a picture of Lucy without her looking stunning, but some of my favourite shots are of her, her matron of honour and family members getting ready. We are very happy with our snaps; they will help us remember the happiest day of our lives for many years to come.”
“Mark and I hired Ross to cover our wedding in July 2010 at Sheldon Manor, Wiltshire. We had complete confidence in Ross’s creative and technical ability, and we were proved right as our photos were so fantastic that we decided to upgrade from a basic package to the biggest and best album available. We still get great pleasure looking at the album and I am sure we will for many years to come. You only get married once, so its important to keep those memories as special as they were on the day you said “I do”. I would not hesitate to recommend Ross – a really top, personable guy with an amazing creative ability.”
“Hey Ross – just been looking at our wedding album. 4 years on – the pictures are so great and it’s such a fantastic record of the day. Thank you so much.”
