Journalistic wedding photography at The Mill Barns, Alveley – Ilesha & Paul




Journalistic wedding photography at The Mill Barns, Alveley.  Ilesha and Paul got married in May at the lovely Mill Barns wedding venue, which is a modern barn in Alveley. It was one of the most fun weddings I’ve shot and even the weather played ball!

Getting ready

Ilesha got ready At The Mill Barns in the dressing room with her girls, and the atmosphere was full of excitement. Ilesha’s gorgeous little boy joined us for the final part of getting ready. He was so darned cute! The wedding party then made the short walk up the stairs to get to the ceremony barn. Paul got ready at home with his boys. They travelled to the ceremony in a fancy wedding car. (A nice Mercedes to be exact).

The ceremony

The ceremony was a legal ceremony in the magnificent barn, with them surrounded by close family and friends. During the ceremony they read their own vows. It was so personal, very moving and little bit funny!

The afternoon

The reception was in the main hall at the venue. They chose Mill Barns wedding venue because it has so many options and they just fell in love with it. It was a relaxed, fun wedding, which I just loved. I love shooting relaxed weddings because they’re always got such a great atmosphere. Being part of the Dream Team at this fab venue is an absolute honour, I cant believe how lucky I am sometimes!

They had a drinks reception in the afternoon, and a disco in the evening. with Steve from strictly Weddings. They decorated the venue with flowers and tealights, because they wanted to keep it simple but beautiful.  I think they did exactly that.

For dinner they had a lovely wedding breakfast, which was loved by all the guests. Jenkinsons food is so darn tasty! The first dance was a romantic slow dance, and they finished off the evening with lots of dancing.

The nicest part of the day was the vows that they had written themselves, because it was so personal but lighthearted at the same time. They also had a sweet cart during the day – it was naughty but very nice 🙂 !

When they got in touch with me last year I thought their enquiry was totally up my street. They said they wanted a relaxed photographer, and I really liked that they just really wanted me there.

Ilesha and Paul’s wedding was everything I love about weddings and the most fun. Here’s their wonderful wedding!
