The Mill Barns Weddings: Planning A Dream Wedding At One Of New England’s Most Beautiful Venues

The Mill Barns Weddings

Wedding Photographers

We have photographed a few amazing weddings at the Mill Barns, Alveley in Shropshire and we are coming back to photograph many more. Every single wedding day we have photographed there, was unique and if you want to see our photos of the Mill Barns weddings, here are the examples:


Well, many things but we really like the fact that the ceremony room is separated from the room in which the wedding breakfast is served. What does this mean for the couples and their guests? A HASSLE-FREE DAY! Just imagine – everything is set up in the morning and the only thing left to do is just to enjoy your day! So, how does a typical wedding day look like at the Mill Barns? We’ve photographed some amazing days there, so let’s take a look at the full wedding day at the Mill Barns, Alveley:

Getting ready

You can get ready in the spacious and well-lit dressing room which is situated just below the ceremony barn! The wedding mornings we have photographed there, were definitely stress-free and so much fun!

The ceremony


From the photography point of view the ceremony barn looks amazing. Plenty of space for all your guests, beautiful views and also plenty of space for you to walk down that aisle (some aisles at other venues are really small!)

There is a lovely Alveley church not far from the Mill Barns…

You might also choose a different church and include the vintage tractors, cars and buses to also enjoy the travel on your day. Here’s an example of such travel that also includes the vintage train!

You can either have it in the Ceremony Barn or outside. As wedding photographers we always recommend a bright confetti. It just stands out nicely on the pictures. What do you think? Which type of confetti would you prefer?

Group Pictures

The Mill Barns weddings are weather-proof. What does it mean? Well, you will need that group family pictures, right? Even if it’s only a few for your parents and grandparents, you need to have them taken somewhere. If the weather is nice, we can of course have them outside. When it rains, we can always use the hall, the ceremony barn or the space downstairs.

Reception Drinks

The Mill Barns wedding venue is just perfect for your reception drinks and other wedding party warm-up activities. Just look at the grounds, the lake and the stream – this couldn’t be more relaxed and wedding photography perfect!

Wedding Breakfast and the speeches

The wedding breakfast takes place in another spacious barn. The Mill Barns were literally built for weddings and the bright walls and oak beams are just perfect if you ask us – the photographers!

Evening fun

We love photographing the evening craziness on the dance floor and we actually stayed with the couple and their guests until midnight. This party was amazing, they left in the vintage car, just after midnight.
