 Pretty Lavender Milling Barn Wedding 

 As I walked into this Milling Barn wedding, the scent of lavender filled the air.  The lavender filled jars and hand tied sprigs that Jasmin had chosen were a fitting decoration. They not only smelt amazing but looked pretty exquisite too.

I found the girls getting ready amongst a clutter of make up, dresses and flowers. Photographing the wedding preparation is one of my favourite things about wedding photography. I tend to attract pretty laid back brides and Jasmin was no exception. Therefore the atmosphere was calm, the bubbly flowing!

As the boys arrived I nipped over to the barn to photograph the final prep in there. Capturing the boys trying to attach their button holes is always fun!  That is to say it’s something most men seem to find confusing. It stumps most grooms and groomsmen. Luckily I’m a dab hand at it and happy to help!

Why Choose a Wedding at Milling Barn?

Milling Barn in Buntingford is an exquisite venue that lends itself to rustic, natural styling. Milling Barn has a mezzanine level that sparkles in all seasons. The fairy lights create a warm glow and a pretty backdrop to the wedding ceremony.

Set in the Hertfordshire countryside, near rural village Throcking, Milling Barn is both a romantic and traditional setting. Boasting a 17th century oak barn, alongside the rustic charm of the old farmyard. Spacious and sophisticated, the barn is a truly beautiful and breathtaking place to host your day.

I  Love The Emotion at a Wedding!

As I waited with the groom, his best man and his father, I listened to his father recollecting days gone by. Remembering his son when he was knee high, it was an emotional moment between father and son. Importantly I captured the gestures made. Subsequently, they have pictures of that moment. Resulting in something tangible to forever remember it by.

Although their day was overcast, the dark sky made for great light and drama in their photos. As a result Jasmin and Stephen have photos which truly reflect the atmosphere of their day. During the drinks reception we spent 20 minutes or so wandering around the grounds at Milling Barn capturing their first few moments together and husband and wife. I like to keep this informal and relaxed. Above all, this is your wedding day, not a photo shoot! Ultimately your enjoyment is key. Bring a glass of champagne and your elation…that’ll do for me!

Documentary Wedding Photographer

Firstly I’m all about taking photos that tell the honest story of your day. Consequently I’m capturing souls not fake smiles.

Secondly, I’m guessing you don’t want to be bossed around and I’m thankful for that. I don’t need to manufacture moments as these will happen naturally around me. I’ll be ready to capture these moments resulting in emotive wedding photography showing the true essence of your day. You and your guests should feel relaxed in my  presence, I’m pretty easy going!

I will make sure that your photo’s reflect who you are and that they tell the story of your day.
