Haselbury Mill Wedding – Teresa and Edward

Haselbury Mill Wedding.

Teresa & Edward were married at Haselbury Mill in Crewkerne. We had a little sneak peek at this beautiful wedding venue back in April when we had a pre-wedding photography session here.

Haselbury Mill is a beautifully understated wedding venue and a pleasure to photograph it. the barn is spacious and beautifully lit. The grounds are elegant and straightforward with lovely features including a small lake complete with a water fountain.

Bridal Preparation.

I started the day with Teresa and her bridesmaids as they prepared for the wedding day at the bride’s parents home.  Teresa looked lovely and her dress was beautiful. It was so much fun photographing the wedding party that morning before we headed off to the church.

Wedding ceremony.

The wedding ceremony was to be held at Our Lady St Mary’s Church in Glastonbury. A church very special to Teresa. I met Edward and his groomsmen at the church for a few photographs as they welcomed the wedding guests. When it was time wedding service Edward stood nervously at the end of the aisle waiting for his bride to arrive.

The wedding service was sweet as the couple exchanged loving looks. St Mary’s Church is a lovely and well-lit church. It was a beautiful summers day so there was plenty of natural light to photograph the newly-weds in. After the couple were greeted by a shower of confetti outside the church there was enough time for some group photographs before heading off to Haselbury Mill for the rest of the days wedding celebrations.

Haselbury Mill Wedding Venue.

We arrived at Haselbury Mill, a beautiful wedding venue. As I have said it was a beautiful summers day, ideal for some candid photography of the couple and wedding guests as they mingled.

Teresa had decided to throw her bouquet and there were several single female guests eager to catch it. After some more photographs, it was time for the wedding breakfast and the speeches. All speeches were sincere and genuine including the bride taking to the stage to say a few words also.

The night’s celebrations were started with the newly-weds first dance. The rest of the wedding guests quickly joined the couple on the dancefloor and the night’s celebrations were in full swing. This marked my time to wind down. After a few more pictures of the guests, it was time to pack up, say my goodbyes and leave the wedding party to enjoy the evening.

A lovely wedding and a pleasure to be there to share the couples wedding day,

  2. GREAT TITHE BARN
    HASELBURY MILL TITHE BARN

    A Tithe Barn was a type of barn used in England and Germany in the middle ages and in the United States for storing the Tithes – a tenth of the farm’s produce which had to be given to the church – our tithe barn however is used for our magnificent functions.

    Our Great Tithe Barn opened in April 2008 and has been running successful functions from the day it opened, with Civil Weddings and Receptions, School Proms, Charity Balls and much more including a choir concert.

    Wedding Barns Somerset

    The tithe barn is perfectly situated overlooking the main grounds of the Haselbury Mill, although it very much part of the Mill it has it’s very own grounds with lake and ample car parking.

    On approaching the tithe barn you can see it’s impressive structure, built from local Ham stone and the grand oak doors, it’s absolutely breathtaking. When entering through the 16ft tall oak doors your eyes are drawn to the vaulted oak ceiling which reaches over 33ft high and 4 gothic chandeliers and wall lighters lighten up the plaques in the ham stone which makes it feel magical. There is also a fire place big enough to stand in. The floor is laid with blue lias flagstones and under floor heating for those cooler days. The barn is also fully equipped with it’s own Bar, Kitchen, Stage, Band room and toilets, including disabled toilets and access – all making it ideal for any function requirement.

    The Crafting of our Tithe Barn

    The construction of the medieval style tithe barn, is believed to have been the first completely new construction of a tithe barn for some 300 years. While many have been restored over the years, no-one pursued the ambition to undertake to build such a large building.

    The project had begun many years before the first block were laid, with meticulous attention given to planning, and design issues. Finally in January 2007, planning permission was granted and the project was finally away. The building started to emerge from the ground in August 2007 as the buttresses started to take shape, the sheer size of the building and project became apparent.

    The outer walls are constructed from Ham stone, taken from the local quarry of Ham and Doulting Stone Company who, working with 9 skilled stone masons from the local area, have crafted the marvel that is the Great Tithe Barn at Haselbury Mill.

    The main roof trusses are constructed from solid oak beams, and were all hand cut and shaped by local craftsmen. Even the joints are authentic, with hand shaved wooden pegs holding the trusses together.

    A Modern Build

    Behind the authenticity of the barn, many features are hidden from view but are necessary to comply with the latest building regulations. Firstly, the building needed deep foundations, a feature omitted in many original builds. The buttresses needed to be reinforced with concrete, while the roof trusses were designed by a structural engineer to withstand the most furious of possible winds.

    Clearly, in today’s modern world, it was necessary to incorporate some modern features. The building is heated by water pipes concealed beneath the flagstones floor and energy efficient bulbs are fitted to medieval style candle holders and hand crafted wagon wheel chandeliers.

    In summary, The Great Tithe Barn is a 300 year old building, built to 21st century standards.
