If you’re after an unforgettable setting for your special day, then you should definitely check out The Mill Barns! As one of the Dream Team Shropshire wedding photography suppliers for this stunning venue, I’ve had the joy of photographing many Mill Barns weddings. Each one has been as unique as the next, with its incredible architecture providing a beautiful backdrop for your wedding photos.
Mill Barns Wedding Photos
Located between Kidderminster and Bridgnorth, The Mill Barns was purpose-built with your wedding in mind. Tucked away down a countryside lane and hidden behind a line of trees, the barns feel like a world away from anywhere. I’ve driven up that lane countless times, and can honestly say that the excitement you feel as the barns come into sight never gets old. This is one wedding venue that definitely has the wow factor!
You’ll then head across a footbridge over Mill Pond towards three impressive oak-framed barns, which seem to be floating on the water. These buildings are all connected through indoor walkways and outdoor terraces. Inside, the tall vaulted ceilings deliver the sense of grandeur that your wedding day deserves, while outside is surrounded by acres of beautifully landscaped gardens.
The Mill Barns team will help you plan your wedding from start to finish, making sure everything goes smoothly so you can relax and enjoy your day. You’ll have exclusive access to all three barns, giving you total privacy to celebrate with up to 170 of your closest family and friends.
Your Wedding Ceremony at Mill Barns
You can also choose to have your wedding inside or outside, no matter what the great British weather decides to do. The outdoor terrace is partially undercover, keeping you and your wedding guests protected and creating a truly magical setting for your special day.
As for drinks, there’s a no corkage charge, giving you freedom to supply all your favourite tipples for your guests to sip on. The wedding breakfast dining experience is also one to remember, serving up whatever your favourite food might be. This is your special day, and there are no rules here about what should or shouldn’t be served!
When nighttime hits, The Mill Pond Barn gets transformed into an epic space for a party. The large dancefloor means there’s plenty of space to throw some shapes, while your DJ or band performs over on the stage area. The bar will keep everyone going until the midnight curfew, when guests head back to their luxury accommodation.
History of The Mill Barns
Part of the Ensarb Estates, this is just one of several wedding venues designed and built by Ben and Sarah Reaves, a wonderful husband and wife duo. Although they only held their first wedding here in 2017, this relatively new venue is actually full of history.
Sitting along the banks of a tributary that feeds into the River Severn, the site was once home to a 17th-century watermill. It’s this history and the waters of the Mill Pond that make this such an extraordinary venue to photograph! And by combining the rustic oak beams with contemporary elements, they’ve managed to bring together the old and the new for a truly timeless and elegant feel.
Mill Barns Wedding Photography
As a wedding photographer, it’s easy to see just how much thought and detail has gone into creating this venue. Every corner has been carefully designed so that every angle provides the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos. Working with a venue like this makes it that much easier to create epic photos that are completely natural. Your wedding guests will get a truly memorable experience visiting this wedding venue as part of the celebrations of your special day.
Inside, full-length windows frame the surrounding gardens and English countryside while flooding the rooms with natural light. Since I rarely need to use a flash, you won’t even notice me at work. Then there’s the symmetry of the architecture and the rustic oak beams, creating natural lines to work with for powerful composition. The best part about this is that we can create beautifully composed pictures without you needing to pose—something many of my couples will be relieved to hear!
If you opt for an outdoor ceremony, this takes place on a decking area that overlooks the Mill Pond, perfect for outdoor waterfront weddings. Carefully positioned to provide some protection from the sun, this creates the perfect lighting for capturing that special moment.
The Mill Pond also gives us a chance to play with reflections, and we can have some fun exploring the landscaped gardens. With so many options, there are endless opportunities to get creative with your wedding photos for an album that’s truly unique to you.
