Further information to help you with your Flower Field Photoshoot planning:

All passes are to be purchased online, in advance, and are subject to availability. We expect that we will sell out on busy days (the final weekend is usually our busiest time!) so please make plans with your clients accordingly.

We recommend that you try to book photo shoots on a weekday – it’s much quieter and so it will be a more enjoyable experience for everyone!

A Photographer’s Location Pass gives you, the photographer (1 person), access to the field during opening hours on your chosen date/dates as printed on the purchased pass. If you work as a photography team, each photographer needs to buy their own pass. There is NO ACCESS to any surrounding fields.

The Confetti Flower Field is open from 10am – 5pm. There is NO ACCESS outside of these times. Please be aware that on busy days there will be a queue at the entry gate. We therefore do not recommend that you start your bookings at 10am as it will take time for you and your clients to get through the queue and meet up.

There will be a dedicated Photographer’s Meeting Point – the best place for you to arrange to meet with your client’s, with shade and seating available.

Your clients will be required to pay the normal entry fee for each person entering the field on arrival at the field gate. If you wish to pay this entry fee for them, as part of your package, please meet up with your customers in our carpark, and come through the entry gate together.

Passes are transferable but not refundable. If you wish to change the date on your pass, please call Nancy on 01386 555045 with at least 24h notice.

This is an outdoor event in the British summertime – please discuss this with your clients and prepare accordingly. We cannot guarantee the sunshine! We are generally open as usual, if it rains, and we would encourage you and your clients to wear wellies and bring colourful umbrellas for an equally fab photo opportunity! However, if you do want to transfer your pass to an alternative day, you must telephone us at least 24h beforehand to rebook your pass/es.

If the weather conditions mean that we must close the flower field on the day you are booked to visit, we will call you at the earliest opportunity to let you know and you will receive a refund for any pass valid on that day.
