Mill Barns Wedding Photography
Just like most people in the wedding industry I started hearing murmurings of The Mill Barns around 2017 when it was opened to the public. Straight from the off I was enamoured with the massive architectural feet which this wedding venue had pulled off. It was no surprise when I then realised how busy it had become and I soon booked my first wedding there. Since then I’ve loved to return every year to photograph in this truly one of a kind sttructure.
With a keen love of design and architecture and all things symmetrical and regimented Mill Barns is a feast for my eyes and I just smile when I’m amongst it. I don’t think I’ll ever get bored of photographing weddings in this Sensational Wedding Barn.

With living just under an hour from Mill Barns I’m a favourite when couples are searching for a wedding photographer. These modern wedding barn weddings are always epic to shoot and the expert team at Mill Barns know just how to deliver a wedding which is relaxing, stress free and doesn’t miss a beat.
My style of wedding photography is built on a great relationship with my couples. All of my weddings are different and unique; even those at the same venue like Mill Barns. Time on your wedding day is really important to me. So if I can help it I don’t really want you to miss a thing on your wedding day and would love you to remember as much as possible. This caring and relaxed approach to my wedding photography is the reason why so many couples recommend me. They always say it feels like a friend is taking their photographs and not a photographer.

Wedding Photography Made Easy at Mill Barns
I love being a photographer at Mill Barns. The whole place’s grandeur really lends itself to the wide angled photographs I love to capture. To add to this the place is littered with beaming natural light through it’s huge windows over looking the Mill Pond meaning I barely ever have to use artificial light which intern helps me remain unobtrusive.
The industrial chic charm of the building mixed with the rustic fairytale vibe provides stunning backdrops for wedding portraits which really bring a look of originality to your wedding day photographs. Exploring the 8 acres of landscaped gardens is one of my favourite things to do with my couples as the sun sets later on. I’m spoilt for choice with festoon lights, a stone pagoda and small wooden bridge to stop at on our way around the grounds.
Photographing a wedding service has never been so easy and as you stand elevated from your guests the natural light from the floor to ceiling windows at the end of the Ceremony Barn will make you look even more incredible on your big day.
Just like this being your dream wedding venue it’s also a dream to be a Mill Barns wedding photographer as the ease of the day and the stunningly sensational architecture mean I can focus on what’s really important. The moments and emotion happening all around.
