Photography Policy

Photographs and videos are a wonderful way to remember your visit to Weavers Orchard. We allow and encourage customers to take casual photographs and videos of their visit for their own personal use.

The Photography Guidelines outlined below are intended for all customers and visitors, but management approval is necessary for some circumstances.

Although the beauty of the orchard may convey the atmosphere of a park, Weavers Orchard is a private business and residence. Your cooperation with these policies will help ensure that the experience of all customers, visitors and those that live and work here is a positive one.

Please be advised that should any photographer voluntarily post a photo on a public site such as our Facebook Page, we will interpret this as permission to use that photo in future publicity.
