Shooting summer wedding photography at Mythe Barn is a dream booking for any Birmingham wedding photographer. Amy and Adam chose the perfect venue for their June wedding. Not only that, I am now so fortunate to call Amy my friend and they have since welcomed their beautiful baby into the world.
On the day I caught up with Amy who along with the rest of her bridal party was having breakfast and getting her hair and makeup done at her sister’s house before they all headed for Mythe Barn to make their final preparations.
When I arrived at Mythe Barn I caught up with Adam and his grooms party and got a couple of shots of them. I then took the chance to get some images of Mythe Barn all dressed and ready for the day.
One of the reasons I love shooting wedding photography at Mythe Barn is that is such a gorgeous venue, it blends new with old so perfectly and has exquisite light which helps me no end when photographing my clients (we Birmingham wedding photographers are real light geeks!)
Amy looked gorgeous in her Heidi Hudson lace detail dress as she walked down the aisle behind the page boys. (Who all looked very handsome and who performed their duties very diligently!)
After a lovely ceremony held in the stunning oak beamed barn with spectacular views of the Leicestershire countryside Amy, Adam and their guests all spilled outside to enjoy the sunshine and a drinks and canapes reception. I quickly whisked Amy and Adam off to take some portrait shots of them set around Mythe Barn.
Everybody then went Mythe Barn’s Grain Store Barn for the wedding reception. This barn is stunning! The ceiling drapes and elegant chandeliers make it such a luxurious setting and the ceiling to floor windows open out onto Mythe Barn’s beautiful gardens. Tables and chairs were exquisitely dressed with flowers done by local florist ‘The Florist Gate’.
Before the wedding breakfast everybody enjoyed some very well received speeches before tucking into a delicious meal. After the meal I thought I’d make the best of the late afternoon sunshine and took Amy and Adam outside to the surrounding farmers’ fields to get some romantic portrait shots of the two of them with the beautiful Leicestershire countryside as a backdrop. Take a look, they are amongst my favourite images of the day.
The evening celebrations saw Amy, Adam and their guests back in the Oak Barn where the clever people from Dance Floor DJ and Events had everything ready for a party! After the cutting of the cake the evening started with Amy and Adam’s romantic first dance and the image of Amy and Adam dancing with all of their loves ones around them seemed an appropriate image to close the story of their lovely wedding day.
Mythe Barn wedding photography is always such a pleasure to shoot and Amy and Adam were such a pleasure to work with. Congratulations to you both for getting married and creating such a wonderful day to remember. I hope my images will help you relive it again and again for many years to come.
