Milling Barn Weddings


The Wedding of Rachel & Tony

I am a recommended Milling Barn Wedding Photographer, so it was fantastic to be booked to photograph the Wedding of Rachel & Tony at this gorgeous venue (https://www.millingbarn.co.uk/). At this wedding, we provided both photography & videography which included the pilot for our drone to capture the overhead footage.

Upon arrival, rather amusingly the bridal party thought we were the strippers. After a quick setup of Spotify to play “You can keep your hat on”, we knew we were all going to have a great time.

The Bridal Preparations

In the morning, we spent time capturing the wedding preparations as well as the bride’s dress and bouquet, and all the other small details of the day.

Whilst the bridal preparations continued, we grabbed some photos and footage of the ceremony room, along with the fantastic balloon work provided by Natalie at the Balloon Room (https://theballoonroom.net/).

The Wedding Ceremony

It was time for the wedding ceremony to begin so we headed into the dairy barn.

It was then time for the drinks reception. The guests had the opportunity to play some garden games whilst we took the couple around the grounds for their wedding portraits.

Before the Wedding Breakfast, the brother of the bride provided scratchcards to each of the guests.

After the starters and main course, there was a break for the speeches. Little did anyone know that this was all part of a plan to surprise everyone. Just as the speeches began, a waiter fell over spilling cutlery all over the floor. We were on-hand to capture the reaction of the guests.

Guests worried that the waiter fell over

Which turned in to laughter and surprise, as our ‘waiter’ from earlier was, in fact, part of a duo providing surprise musical entertainment (https://thesingingwaitermasters.co.uk/).

Everyone thought it was fantastic and had a great time. We took a short break before the ‘real’ speeches.
