Millbridge Court Wedding Venue
When I first met Jenny and Mat at their new home, and they told me they were getting married at Millbridge Court, I was delighted! Not only were they a beautifully happy, smiley couple, they were getting married at one of my favourite venues. Win win!
Millbridge Court is an exclusive, private hire wedding venue in the Surrey countryside. It offers weddings all year round, with the added option of being able to hold your ceremony outside in the warmer months. It is a stunning building, flooded with light, so makes for some really beautiful wedding photos. As you will see below…
The Morning Preparations
Jenny and her lovely bridesmaids all got ready for the wedding in the Bridal Changing Suite at Millbridge Court. It was a super chilled out morning, with Jenny showing no sign of nerves and everyone making the most of the opportunity to spend some time together before the main event.
During the morning I took the opportunity to nip downstairs and take some photographs of the amazing flowers being set up by Green Fingers Florists. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves, but I can honestly say that the arrangements for the wedding breakfast room were some of the best I’ve seen! I personally love a simple looking wedding arrangement with lot of greenery and these were just so, so effective. LOVE THEM. (Though I do feel I should add, knowing nothing about floristry at all - that although I say simple yet effective - they were actually anything but simple to put together. They must have taken hours!!)
While I was hanging out with Jenny and the ladies at Millbridge Court, Louise headed to the nearby pub to meet up with Mat and the rest of the Groomsmen. They all get ready at home, meeting in the pub for a quick pint and a snack, before heading down to greet the guests as they arrived at the Wedding Venue.
Not forgetting the Groom!
The Wedding Ceremony at Millbridge Court
What can I say about Millbridge Court as a wedding venue?! No matter what time of year you are getting married, the ceremony room is flooded with THE most amazing natural light.
Jenny and Mat chose a stunning floral arrangement to go at the front of the ceremony room, with some simple greenery tied to the chairs along the aisle.
Jenny was walked down the aisle by her proud Dad, to the beaming smiles of her guests and her husband to be!
During the Afternoon - Millbridge Court Wedding Reception
After the I do’s, it was time to head out into the pretty gardens and the AMAXING April sunshine. Yep, you heard me right. It was April… and it was H.O.T.
Guests threw confetti, listened to music and made the most of the outdoor Prosecco bar. With lots of mingling to be done and plenty of photos to take, the afternoon drinks reception just flew by.
Dinner and Speeches in the fab Millbridge Court Wedding Breakfast Room
Once everyone had had their fill of canapés and prosecco, it was almost a relief to head out of the sunshine and into the cool interior of the wedding breakfast room. This is one of those times when Millbridge Court really comes into it’s own. The room is light and airy, the flowers and table settings look amazing and there are even some cool shelves for hanging plants, candles and that all important ‘shelfie’. And the food is seriously good too.
Jenny and Mat decided to have their speeches before dinner, so that everyone could then relax and enjoy their meal. The speeches were perfect with just the right amount of tears, laughter and pictures of the Groom as a young boy. Ha!
The Evening Reception
After the wedding breakfast, the guests had a bit of time to hang out in the garden and make the most of the early evening sunshine, before heading back inside to dance the night away.
Jenny and Mat - we had THE BEST time at your wedding. You were fab, your guests were amazing and your photos are pretty good too - even if I do say so myself. We wish you all the happiness in the world!
