Nicola and Andy’s wedding at The Mill Barns
As I continue to catch up with last years blogging Im pleased to present Andy and Nicolas wedding at The Mill Barns. Out of pure coincidence I’ve just been catching up with Nicola as she has ordered a wedding album, great to hear they are both still doing well. The couple got married at the end of last August at The Mill Barns which is close to in Alveley, Shropshire. This wasn’t the first time I had photographed a wedding at The Mill Barns, as one of their recommended photographers I have the privilege to shoot there quite regularly. I’m honoured to be a recommended wedding photographer at a handful of great venues such as the Mill.
Bridal Preparations at The Mill Barns
One of the best venues in the country I knew this was going to be a great day. From the moment I arrived there was a great atmosphere as Nicola was getting ready. They don’t get much better than here. Nicola had all her girls getting ready with her in the bridal prep room at The Mill, it was clear to see how excited and pleased they were for their friends big day. Andy arrived at the venue ready dressed, but still had time for a quick drink and game of table football to calm the nerves before the ceremony.
The Mill Barns Wedding
Just before the ceremony Nicola’s dad came into the room to see her in the dress for the first time. He was clearly very emotional and filled with pride. I have a daughter myself and it’s always a very humbling moment to photograph. There was a great turnout of family and friends come to witness the ceremony and wish the happy couple well.
During the wedding reception the newlyweds had set up a handful of traditional carnival games, hoopla, table football etc. I always think some lawn games are a great idea for summer weddings, they provide some great entertainment, especially as the drinks start to flow!
It was soon time for the wedding breakfast and speeches so guests made their way into the dining room for a delicious meal prepared by Jenkinsons Caterers.
As the evening drew in the only left to do was to get everyone on the dance floor and rock out to the tunes coming from the band, New York Royals – who were absolutely fantastic. As well as having a thoroughly fantastic day, it was just a joy to photograph Nicola and Andy’s wedding and I felt buzzing by the time I left.
It was great to once again work with Jack from Up Close wedding videos.
