Milling Barn Wedding || Ashleigh & Freddies Fun filled wedding day

Barn weddings are a firm favourite for wedding couples looking for a relaxed friendly fun vibe. Ashleigh and Freddies was an epic day on that front.

I asked Ashleigh and Freddie why they chose Milling Barn as their wedding venue!

When looking for venues, we chose an hour radius from our home, we wanted a natural barn setting and everything to be all in one venue to keep things as easy as possible. (Most importantly, we wanted a pizza oven!) Milling Barn was on the edge of our 1 hour so we were a little worried but after booking a visit and being shown the site by Gemma, the sales manager, we knew it was the one. Everything was so peaceful, the venue was beautiful, the staff were so kind and the pizza oven was a treat!

Do things your way!

I am a big advocate for doing your wedding your way, Ashleigh and Freddie certainly embraced this. From a 1st look where they read personal wedding cards and had some time together, to the bubbles instead of confetti to embracing and enjoying every minuet of their day.

Surprises!

When I got a call from Freddies Best Lady a week before their wedding day saying she had a surprise for them I was all ears!. On their first date Ashleigh & Freddie had watched Back to the Future and ate Pizza (hence pizza being an evening food of choice).

George had the great idea of hiring a De Lorean car to come and surprise them and be in their wedding photos .. well their facial expressions say it all. ( I will let the photos below do the talking ). Its safe to say it was the talk of the wedding.

Kind words from Ashleigh & Freddie

We found Julia Fairytale Wedding Photos at a wedding fair in St. Albans. Photography was the biggest thing we wanted to be perfect as that is the thing that lasts forever. The immediate draw to Jules were the incredible albums that she created. We are a huge lover of books and the quality and design were so perfect.

The photos that she had already taken at the same venue that we had chosen really helped us to see the outcome and style of photos, a perfect mix or natural, dramatic, fun and real. We wanted to capture all the little moments while still having some incredible backdrops captured. 
Jules made us feel so comfortable, like she was just another guest that we had invited. She fitted in with the families and friends and made the photos so fun and easy to take, even for the people who hate being photographed. Her creativity and style really captured some unique photos that we absolutely love too. 

Thank you so much Julia.
