A couple of weeks ago I photographed the wedding of Lauren & Neil at Milling Barn, Throcking (www.millingbarn.co.uk).
The Milling Barn is a beautiful 17th Century oak barn, and the adjoining Dairy Barn is a converted milking parlour, both of which are licenced to hold civil weddings and partnerships. I arrived early whilst the room was being prepared and met up with the Bride in the Dressing Room, a recent addition to the Milling Barn venue,
The homemade flower boxes were beautiful, and really added to the charm of the venue.
The couple had added some small finishing touches to the ceremony room with candles, ribbons and petals.
They had also created a picture frame and had added some lovely photos from their early years!
During the bridal preparations and in between, I grabbed shots of the bouquet, dress and shoes to ensure I captured all of the smallest details.
The groom and his best man arrived at Milling Barn to start greeting all of their guests. I took this time to get a few shots of them and the rings before heading back into the dressing groom to grab the finishing touches.
One of my favourite shots is grabbing the first look from the father of the bride.
It was time for the ceremony, so I headed back over to grab shots of the guests and the bridal party entrance.
After the ceremony, we headed outside for the confetti shot. During the drinks reception, I took the bride and groom off for their portrait shots around the beautiful grounds of Milling Barn.
We joined back up with their guests and took the group shots. Shortly afterwards, the wedding breakfast began, kicking off with the speeches.
The wedding cake also looked lush!
After the wedding breakfast was complete, the room was prepared for the evening reception. In meantime, some of the guests played crazy golf outside.
The guests were called back inside for the cake cutting, followed by the first dance, and the beginning of a night of partying!
There was also a quick opportunity to head outside and capture a beautiful sunset.
