The Confetti Flower Field 2019 – please note that the dates have changed: Our open days are now 21st – 30th June 2019.
We sincerely apologise for the disappointment and inconvenience this change may cause.
Farming is always at the mercy of the weather and the elements, and our mild, dry winter, and warm spring have brought forward all our crops. It is very difficult, when working with a natural product, a live crop, and the British seasons, but we believe that the flowers will come earlier than usual this summer and so we have moved the open days to coincide with when we now feel that they will be in full bloom.
We hope that you will be able to work with these changes and that you can understand that our motivation for making this decision is to ensure that you and your clients experience the flower field at its best.
Photo shoots in The Confetti Flower Field – buy your pass now
Photographer’s Daytime Location Pass: £45.00 per day = 1 day pass. Please purchase a pass for each day you will be visiting.
Full 10-Day Photographer’s Daytime Location Pass: £350.00 = 10 day pass. (Includes promotion – please see below)
All passes are to be purchased online, in advance, and are subject to availability.
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!
You are purchasing a downloadable file that will contain your field pass and the full T&Cs. Please print your pass and read the terms and conditions carefully. (Please note: you can only download the file once).
A Photographer’s Location Pass gives you, the photographer (1 person), access to the field between 10am – 5pm 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 outside of these days and times. There is NO ACCESS to any surrounding fields.
Your clients will be required to pay the normal entry fee for each person entering the field on arrival at the field gate (£5.00 per adult and £2.50 for children aged 6 – 16).
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. We will be open 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 want to come on an alternative day you must telephone us at least 24h beforehand to rebook your pass/es. The flower field will only be closed if the weather conditions are extreme – we will call you to let you know and you will receive a refund for any pass valid on that day.
In the summer, when you arrive at the flower field, you’ll be required to check in at the gate and present your Location Pass. More details as to the arrival procedures, field layout and details, will be emailed to you in June 2019.
All photographer’s purchasing a full 10-day pass will receive a listing on our website Flower Fields page, with your website and contact details, so visitors looking to book a photo shoot will be able to contact you directly. In addition, you can send us some photos to promote your work and we’ll share them on our popular social media sites.
This summer’s flower field will be much bigger – a whopping 27 acres of flowers as opposed 14 acres last year! This means that people will have a lot more room and space and it should be much easier to get photos without other people in the background.
In 2019 we will set up a dedicated Photographer’s Meeting Point, for you to arrange to meet with your client’s, with shade and seating available.
