Zoey & Dave - Wedding photography slideshow from The Mill Barns, Alveley

January 19, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Soooo, this was the 'no pressure' wedding of the year....Zoey studied at the Plymouth College of Art and her elected subject for her degree was photography - so she had VERY clear ideas of what style of photography/imagery she wanted for her wedding.  She and Dave had also chosen the Mill Barns in Alveley as their wedding venue and, whilst I had visited there just before the wedding to get a 'feel' of the new building and layout for shots it would be the first visit of the year for me.

The new timber barns are certainly a change from the site's previous incarnation, now offering a grand rustic and industrial backdrop for couples to add their own finishing touches and from what I have seen so far, everyone makes the most of this amazing space.  The two main function rooms are incredibly light and airy and provide fabulous views over the mill pond and gardens, so even if people want to stay indoors, they can still see what is going on outside and feel part of the wedding.  

Back to the wedding!  Zoey and the girls settled into the enormous bridal prep room for hair, make up and (true to her super-relaxed approach towards the wedding) some seriously last minute dress alterations - you know things are going to be interesting when the bridesmaids are still standing on chairs having their dresses hemmed when the registrars are interviewing the bride minutes before the ceremony..........  Along similar lines, although he guys were ready, Dave was in the Mill Pond Barn 'building' his creation - their fabulous naked wedding cake - and making sure the incredible rustic letters he had made were 'just so'.

The time finally arrived for the most important part of the day and everyone in the Mill Wheel Barn was waiting in anticipation for the arrival of Zoey - the waiting did allow Dave's nerves to kick in a little, but once the music started, the doors opened and his stunning bride-to-be made her way down the aisle he was all smiles! 

From that point on the day whizzed by with loads of love and laughter (including a self-carved roast complete with chef hats and Marvel superhero aprons (Dave was determined to get some reference to them in somewhere) and an hilarious game of 'Mr & Mrs' hosted by the best man before the first dance) and it seemed like no time before we were out getting the last evening shots of what had been an amazing day.

I have put some images together from their day, so please enjoy watching over the next few minutes.  When viewing, because the autoHD option reduces quality, please select the 720 option from the dropdown menu at the bottom right of the viewing screen.  Thanks,
