Family Photography at Castle Farm

Private Family photography

We love welcoming photographers and familes to our beautiful fields

Each July at Castle Farm, when the Lavender is in bloom, we organise private access to two of our spectacular Lavender fields, for professional photographers to use and bring clients for family photoshoots. We also have additional floral backdrops available for family photography including wildflowers, sunflowers, tall grasses, oak barns and arable backdrops.

Information for Professional Family Photographers

If you are looking to bring clients to photograph one evening in the Lavender fields, please contact the team on photography@castlefarmkent.co.uk for availability, pricing and further details.

The Lavender Fields bloom from late June to late July and private access to bring family clients is bookable on an hourly basis. Bookings usually run from late afternoon to early evening, in order to take advantage of soft summer light.

If you are looking to hire the Lavender fields for a larger location shoot / film, please email locations@castlefarmkent.co.uk .


Information for Families

If you already have your own professional photographer you wish to bring along for your shoot, then get in contact with the team on photography@castlefarmkent.co.uk to check availability for remaining private photography sessions, pricing and further details. All shoots take place when the Lavender is in bloom from late June to late July, and sessions are booked by the hour.

If you need to find a photographer, please see below recommendations of a few of the regular photographers who we have worked with for many years in the Lavender fields. They are fantastic at making you feel relaxed and comfortable throughout your session, and we are sure you will be very happy with your photos at the end!
