Location The Mill Barns
The Mill Barns is an exclusive use no corkage fee waterfront wedding venue located in Alveley near Bridgnorth in Shropshire. A stunning contemporary barn wedding venue the location is part of the best day ever group of wedding venues.
For the Mill Barns photographer the location provides for stunning contemporary wood interiors perfect for internal wedding photos and a grand exterior with a small lake and ample outdoor gardens and pagoda.
The venue offers rooms for both bridal prep and groom prep meaning the mill barns wedding photographer can shoot both bridal prep and groom prep in one location without the need for a second wedding photographer.
The wedding of Emma and Sam took place in early summer with some great summer sunshine on offer. Making use of both prep rooms I was able to capture prep for both Groom (Sam) and Bride (Emma).
The bridal prep room is very large room at The Mill Barns with good lighting and plenty of mirrors – an excellent backdrop for Mill Barns photos as the wedding day begins. Flipping between bride and groom prep as the morning progressed means a good account is captured of the preparations for the day with hair & makeup and prosecco in the bridal prep room while groom and groomsmen sup larger and attend to pin holes in the groom prep room, here a rolltop bath with views to the rear water feature provide a great photo backdrop.
A mid day wedding ceremony meant that we were in the ceremony hall for 11:45 with registrars on time. The ceremony room at The Mill Barns is a grand affair with a high apex ceiling and plenty of natural light flowing though the large barn windows.
From ceremony on to drink reception we took a 40 minute break after group photos to wonder into the grounds for some winning posed couple wedding photos. The grounds at The Mill Barns are truly stunning in summer with lush greens contrasted against the yellow wooden structure of the venue, a delight for the Mill Barns wedding photographer.
From there we head in for meal, speeches and then on to cake cut and first dance.
