Photography in the Confetti Field:
The Confetti Flower Field is CLOSED right now.
We’re sorry, the flowers only bloom for a few days in summer and there is currently no public access to our farmland. If you are interested in running photo shoots in our flower field in 2020, the details will be released here in the summer.
UPDATE SPRING 2020:
We hope all of our Confetti Friends are keeping well & we send you all our best wishes. Happy News – We are hoping to open a Confetti Flower Field later in the summer – August 2020 😊 This is later than usual, as we have planted a second field of flowers in the past few weeks, with the hope to have a chance of opening for 10 days in August. Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram to hear our news as soon as it’s announced.
Keep healthy and keep smiling – we look forward to seeing you in August.
With love from, The Petal People x
Further information to help you with your photography in the confetti field 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.

- Please do not bring excess baggage or equipment.
- We will not allow large props and large pieces of equipment into the flower fields (eg. suitcases, furniture, step ladders, giant light reflectors). A stool or small steps is fine. Please don’t use our chairs to stand on – it’s too wobbly underfoot.
