Mythe Barn Rustic Wedding – Lorna and David

Birmingham Wedding Photographer

Lorna and David booked me to capture their wedding at the start of 2018. Before you knew it, the wedding day was here, with Lorna getting ready in Mythe Barn’s stunning bridal suite and David arriving suited in his beloved Mini!

Mum was busy putting the final touches to the wonderful cake she had made when Lorna couldn’t resist popping down to where all the action was, to see if the plans she had in her head for so long, were coming to life perfectly.

Before you knew it, it was time! I made my way down to David to wait for Lorna to join him. By this point, I think David had been made to wait long enough and as you can see, couldn’t wait to see his Bride! The ceremony was beautiful, with a few laughs thrown in when Lorna nearly got her words wrong.

We couldn’t have asked for better weather and everyone was outside enjoying the drinks and canapes provided by the wonderful Galloping Gourmet. The reception room was perfect, with gorgeous rustic and pastel touches all over, even greeting guests outside when they arrived.

Lorna and David, you really did have the most beautiful wedding and thank you for asking me to capture it.

A Mythe Barn Wedding – Ruth and Luke

Mythe Barn Wedding

I always love shooting wedding photography at Mythe Barn and I always love working with couples like Ruth and Luke.  On the day I arrived early and took some shots of Mythe Barn all dressed and ready for Ruth and Luke’s day.  Ruth was getting ready in one Mythe Barn’s beautiful suites and had her attentive bridesmaids on hand to help her with any last minute details – like pouring glasses of bubbly!

Ruth looked stunning in her figure hugging lace detail bridal dress that had a gorgeous low back and gave her a perfect silhouette in all of my portrait shots.  Her long hair was beautifully arranged by Jennifer Brown and makeup was done by Nicola Honey both of whom are from Zara Willetts.  Ruth looked beautiful.

The ceremony was held in Mythe Barn’s stunning Oak Barn.  (The Oak Barn is just one of the reasons I love shooting at Mythe Barn) Its solid oak frame reaching up two storeys is flooded with natural light through full height windows and skylights.  The ‘Highly Strung’ string quartet played throughout the ceremony and drinks reception.

Luke and his grooms’ party looked resplendent in 3-piece petrol blue suits.  After the ceremony there was a drinks and canapes reception in Mythe Barn’s pretty courtyard and with everybody mingling I took my chance to grab some gorgeous portrait shots of Ruth and Luke around the stunning grounds of Mythe Barn.

We then re-joined everybody for the wedding reception which was held in the Grain Store which is a contemporary barn with stunning floor to ceiling windows that open up onto the garden and picturesque views beyond.

The elegant décor with ornate chandeliers, stylish wall lights and ceiling drapes was further enhanced by the beautiful way Ruth and Luke had dressed the room.  I especially liked the table runners of natural white and foliage flowers which were the clever creation of florist Emily Robbins.

Catering on the day was provided by Galloping Gourmet and, like the speeches, was very well received by everyone.

Evening celebrations started with the cutting of a very elegant and understated wedding cake before Ruth and Luke hit the dancefloor for a romantic first dance.  Wedding band ‘The Young Ones’ provided live entertainment for the wedding party with their fantastic blend of rock, pop, funk, Motown and soul.  They really are a fantastic band, take a look at them on YouTube.

Ruth and Luke’s wedding was a delight to shoot from beginning to end.  Congratulations to both of you for getting married and creating such an amazing wedding day.  I hope my images will allow you to relive it again and again for many years to come.

A Mythe Barn wedding with Chinese traditions – Tina and Aaron

Mythe Barn Wedding Photography

I always love returning to shoot weddings at Mythe Barn Wedding Venue.  Tina and Aaron chose the perfect venue for their late summer wedding. But I’m getting ahead of myself, let’s start at the beginning of Tina and Aaron’s beautiful wedding day.

It was an early start as the family held a traditional Chinese tea ceremony at the family home. The family and bride and grooms party were in traditional Chinese dress and there were games played in the street outside the family house.  It was so much fun and a real treat for the neighbours!

After the games everybody went inside for a traditional Chinese tea.  It is a Chinese custom to serve tea to parents at your wedding to show respect and gratitude for all the years of love and care.  It was lovely and added something fun, unique and personal to Tina and Aaron’s wedding day.

After the tea ceremony the wedding party headed to Mythe Barn to get ready and I took the chance to take some lovely shots of Tina as she made her final preparations.  She looked amazing in a flattering lace detail dress with a veil.   Hair and makeup were perfect and were cleverly done by Tina’s sister Tham.

It’s always nice to work with other professionals in the wedding industry and this was the case working alongside Raw Vision London who were making a wedding film of the day.

Once everybody was ready there was a beautiful wedding ceremony in the Oak Barn.  Imagine a solid oak framed barn reaching up two storeys high with light flooding in through breathtaking full height windows and skylights.

After a beautiful ceremony Tina, Aaron and their guests all enjoyed a drinks and canapés reception with live musical accompaniment in the elegant Cart Barn (love the stone floors and hops hanging from the oak beams above).

After some formal and less formal group shots and a gorgeous confetti moment I quickly whisked Tina and Aaron away for some romantic portraits shots set around the grounds of Mythe Barn.  Another thing I love about shooting Mythe Barn wedding photography is that it has the prettiest gardens and grounds set in acres of Leicestershire countryside that made the most idyllic backdrop when photographing Tina and Aaron.

The wedding reception was held in the stunning Grain Store, a contemporary barn with stunning floor to ceiling windows that opens up onto the garden and picturesque views beyond. The chandeliers, stylish wall lights and ceiling drapes give the barn a really luxurious feel.

Now I love the little details at weddings as they always tell me something of my couples’ personalities.  At Tina and Aaron’s it was the tables named after places the pair had travelled to and accompanied by a photograph of them there!  It was a lovely touch for this well-travelled couple!

Evening entertainment was DJ’d by the very experienced team at Wedding Sounds and started with the cutting of a beautiful wedding cake.  As always the youngest guests were the first to hit the dancefloor but it was Tina and Aaron’s romantic first dance that really kick started the party.  Before long the dancefloor was busy with Tina and Aaron’s guests cutting some impressive shapes!  The image of Tina and Aaron partying with all of their loved ones around them signaled it was time for me to take my leave.

A gorgeously elegant and fun wedding that seamlessly blended Chinese and British wedding traditions.  Congratulations to Tina and Aaron for getting married and creating a wonderful day for yourselves, your family and your friends to remember.

I hope my images will allow you to relive it again and again for many years to come.

Mythe Barn Wedding – Natalie and Sam

I didn’t have long to get to know Natalie and Sam. It was a week in fact. They were let down by another photographer and contacted me to see if I was available and I was!

Everything was held in one place on the day, at Mythe Barn. When I pulled up on the morning of the wedding, the garden games were already being set up on the lawn outside. It was such a beautiful day, with the weather definitely being on our side.

Natalie’s perfect Ronald Joyce dress from Lula Ann Bridal hung on the huge mirrors in the bridal suite, whilst the Men arrived at the venue to get ready in the rooms around the courtyard.

Natalie looked so beautiful and before we knew it, the veil was going on and it was time to walk down those stairs. At this point, I was walking into the ceremony room to a very nervous looking Sam. I felt the excitement for him, as I’d seen how gorgeous she looked!

It was such a perfect and emotional ceremony, with laugher throughout. This was the theme throughout the day. The styling was gorgeous and you could see the thought that had gone into everything, even down to the tiny locket hanging from Natalie’s bouquet.

I hope you love these images as much as I loved taking them. It was amazing to work alongside Craig again from Amazing Dayz Wedding Films.

Mythe Barn Wedding Photos – Maddy and Ste

Tipi Wedding PhotographerMaddy and Ste met me at one of Mythe Barn’s open days. I’m so lucky, as a Birmingham Wedding Photographer, to be local enough to capture weddings at Mythe Barn since the day it opened. Soon after us meeting, I was counting down for their wedding day.

Fast forward to 2017 and Maddy and I met up for a coffee to chat about the day, as it was fast approaching. To say I was excited after this was an understatement. They had booked some of the best suppliers out there.

Pumpkin events were styling the reception room! Bridal Hair Specialists were doing the hair and Hayley Price was doing the make up. Then there were the flowers!! I obviously couldn’t know how amazing these were going to look until the day and wow, The Florist Gate did not disappoint.

Here is Mythe Barn’s ceremony room….

Mythe Barn Wedding PhotosWhen I arrived at the venue, bridal prep was in full swing. Everyone was really excited and many suppliers were busy downstairs making the rooms look more amazing than they already did.

As I made my way downstairs, I saw how nervous Ste was and I knew the minute he saw how beautiful Maddy looked, he wasn’t going to be able to hold back his emotions. I love watching people in love and that moment they are saying the vows to one another.

Everything was so perfect throughout the day and my favourite part was seeing all the guests have so much fun with the singing waiters.

After Maddy and Ste received their gallery, they had the most wonderful things to say “I knew as soon as I saw Nicola’s work I would be using her for our wedding day! On the day Nicola is there for you and helps as though she is part of your friends and family. She knows exactly what to capture and I felt at ease all day! When we sat through and looked at our photos it brought back so many memories of our day that we didn’t take in, so it was lovely to go through them. I would 100% recommend Nicola”.

I don’t think my couples realise it’s me who’s the lucky one! I hope you enjoy looking through the images from the day too. There is so much wedding inspiration here!
