Weddings at Milling Barn with Lauren & Neil
I love Weddings at Milling Barn, and I was so pleased to have the opportunity to photograph the wedding of Lauren & Neil at this stunning venue (www.millingbarn.co.uk). The Milling Barn is a beautiful 17th Century oak barn. Adjoining this is the Dairy Barn, a converted milking parlour, both of which are licenced for your wedding. I arrived early 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.
The Confetti Shot & Drinks Reception
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.
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 their first dance.
There was a beautiful sunset so we quickly headed outside to capture it.
