Alcumlow Wedding Barn wedding photography
Alcumlow Wedding Barn features a beautiful traditional dutch barn that has been converted into a stunning rustic wedding venue. It is perfect for any couple dreaming of an untraditional day and their unique barn gives couples a relaxed atmosphere with a very vintage feel, decked with thousands of twinkling lights. As recommended photographer for Alcumlow I love it when I get asked back to work there again, the staff are incredible and the surroundings are just perfect! There are so many gorgeous little spots for photographs and their outdoor wedding house is unlike anything I've ever seen!
Alcumlow Wedding Barn can accommodate upto 120 guests for a civil ceremony and reception. The combination of weathered wood, pretty flowers, candle light and home made touches makes guests feel warm and cosy, and hessian finishes capture the essence of rustic, even more so when mixed with hay bales giving the ultimate vintage experience.

where to stay
Alcumlow Wedding Barn blogs
Alcumlow Wedding Barn doesn't currently have its own accommodation, but there are plenty of nearby places to stay, and they do have a stunning prep room that can be booked for your wedding morning.
The Alexander Court Hotel in Congleton is a popular location for couples to stay the night before the wedding, it's a pretty boutique hotel with nice big light bedrooms which are great for photographing in.
Can we get married at Alcumlow?
Yes you can! Alcumlow Wedding Barn is licensed for civil ceremonies inside the twinkle lit barn, and also outdoors in their unique White House structure. Its truly one of my favourite outdoor ceremony locations. If you 're planning a church wedding there are some lovely local churches too, such as Astbury Church, and St John the Baptist Church in Smallwood.
What if it rains on our wedding day?
A wet wedding might be one of your worries but there are always rainy day options. In light rain there is lots of tree cover if you're happy to brave it with brollies and the barn is a gorgeous setting for indoor group portraits! I also use a very clever weather app which helps me to keep a close eye on the weather during weddings too and I'm very used to utilising gaps in the rain so you can relax!
Where should we have our group photos?
It really just depends what you'd like your backdrop to be. I love the side of the lake for groups but theres also the courtyard, the White House, infant of the barn doors and of course inside the barn if the weather is tricky!
Can we have confetti shots at Alcumlow?
Alcumlow Wedding Barn allow biodegradable confetti to be thrown, both in and outside of the venue, meaning you can get your confetti shots no matter the ceremony space / weather!
Are we able to bring our dog to our wedding?
Alcumlow are a dog friendly venue! I've had the pleasure of photographing many a doggy ring bearer here! There are also a local company Precious Pets who cover this venue and offer an exclusive wedding dog chaperone service, they can make sure your pooch is well looked after during the whole day.
