Mythe Barn wedding photography – Amy and Adam

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.

A beautiful Mythe Barn Wedding – Hannah and Kenny

Wedding Photography at Mythe Barn – Hannah and Kenny

Ask any Birmingham wedding photographer and they’ll tell you they love shooting wedding photography at Mythe Barn. Hannah and Kenny chose the perfect venue for their summer wedding.

On the day we arrived early at Mythe Barn to capture Hannah and her bridal party getting ready in one of Mythe Barn’s suites. Hannah was in good spirits and safe hands with bridesmaids Charlotte and Paige on standby. 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 managing to be both rustic and contemporary at the same time. Set in 150 acres of farmland on the borders of Staffordshire, Warwickshire, and Leicestershire, Mythe Barn looks out over rolling hills and meadows to the River Sence. With sheep grazing as you drive from the road in to the farm, it’s a rural, fairy-tale setting for a wedding.

Hannah looked beautiful in her 2haveand2holdforever wedding dress that had the most beautiful lace detailing on it and gave her an exquisite silhouette in my portrait shots. Hair on the day was done by the very talented Laura Mills and makeup by Harper. The overall look was one of effortless and understated glamour.

Just before the ceremony I caught up with Kenny, who along with his groom’s party (Harley and Connor) was looking resplendent in a three-piece petrol blue suit. Flowers were really beautiful and were the clever creation of Jessica Andrews.
Hannah and Kenny’s wedding ceremony was held in the stunning oak beamed barn with spectacular views of the Leicestershire countryside. It was a lovely ceremony with live musical accompaniment. Now it’s always nice to work with other professionals in the wedding industry and this was the case with Wesley from Wedding Memory who was there to film the wedding.
After the ceremony everybody enjoyed a drinks and canapes reception in the Cart Barn which has a beautiful stone floor, hops hanging from the oak beams and gorgeous lighting which really helped when taking candid shots of Hannah and Kenny guests.

Whilst guests happily mingled I took the opportunity to quickly whisk Hannah and Kenny away to get some beautiful portrait shots of them set around the grounds and farmland of Mythe Barn. They returned to a lovely confetti moment before everybody was seated for the wedding breakfast that was being held in the Grain Store Barn.

Well, what can I say about the Grain Store Barn other than the obvious? That it looked amazing. Really, take a look! This contemporary barn boasts stunning floor to ceiling windows opening up onto the garden and picturesque views beyond. The elegant décor has beautiful chandeliers, stylish wall lights and ceiling drapes. It really is stunning and has every Birmingham wedding photographers favourite thing in the world ‘tons of natural light’!

Before food there were some very well received speeches, that saw the sharing of the some great photographs and Kenny’s best men Harley and Connor dressed in red lingerie! Then it was onto the delicious meal.

It’s the little details at weddings that tell you something of your client’s personalities. At Hannah and Kenny’s take a look at the bar! This one catered for everything and did so in such a gorgeously stylish way. I also loved the four tier wedding cake which was the clever creation of Sophie Page.

Evening celebrations saw Hannah, Kenny and their guests back in the Oak Barn where the people from Dance Floor DJ’s and events had thought of everything. The party kick started with an impressive first dance that included a confetti canon moment. After that the dancefloor was quickly full with guests young and less young! Before no time the party was in full swing which was my cue to leave.

A fantastically fun and stylish wedding for this lovely pair. Congratulations to Hannah and Kenny for getting married and creating such a wonderful day for yourselves, your family and your friends to remember. And thank you for allowing me to tell the story of your amazing day.
