Milling Barn is a stunning wedding venue in the rolling Hertfordshire countryside
Milling Barn is a beautiful barn and stunning wedding venue in Hertfordshire, located near the rural village of Throcking, close to Royston. This romantic and spacious barn incorporates the traditional character of a breathtaking 17th Century oak barn, alongside the rustic charm of the old farmyard. The impressive traditional barn is a magical setting for weddings, with its high ceilings, and exposed beams, Milling Barn has a rustic feel and period charm which lends itself perfectly to both your ceremony and wedding breakfast.
The Sam Lewis Band have worked closely with the team at Milling Barn and The Venue Group since 2015 and are always impressed by the lengths everyone goes to, to make each and every event the best it possibly can be.
The Sam Lewis Band is one of Hertfordshire's busiest wedding and party bands performing at 50-100 weddings each year. Sam can perform live at the ceremony and reception drinks before bringing in his band for the evening AND DJing in between the live sets. Quality is assured given Sam can only be in one place at one time unlike bands using various aliases. Sam will always be the front-man for your band on your special day.

Milling Barn Wedding Review...
What can we say about Sam? Exceptional would be a good start!
We got to know Sam nearly two years before our wedding. As soon as we met him we knew we wanted him and his band at our wedding. His attention to detail and enthusiasm are second to none. He went the extra mile to make all the announcements during the day and the band kept the dance floor full the whole night.
We cannot recommend Sam and his band highly enough for your wedding or event.

It's important to book the right suppliers for the job. Trusted suppliers (also known as preferred or recommended suppliers) are usually selected by the venue as their respective brands work well together. For example; a photographer that has experience of a venue will know where to go for the best light, architecture and/or backdrops come rain or shine. A preferred band, musician or DJ (did I mention that we're all three?) will know when to arrive, where and when to set up, whether the venue has a noise limiter and who the wedding coordinator is etc.
The combination of suppliers that know each other is often overlooked yet can make a huge difference to your big day. It's just the same as any kind of team. Most wedding suppliers will also recommend others that they rate highly and enjoy working with. Communication between suppliers and the venue beforehand and on the day makes a big difference too. Familiarity helps and collaboration is the key!
We work with numerous photographers at MIlling Barn. Reccomended suplliers include Victoria Mitchell, Esme Robinson and John Whiles.
