This week’s progress has been so exciting to watch; visually the Millbridge Court interiors have been coming on leaps and bounds, so here’s a few snaps to keep you updated.
Let me start with our gorgeous Ceremony Hall. All internal and external structural scaffolding is down making it very easy to appreciate the sheer height and grandeur of the room. Having been on site at dusk at the end of the week I was astounded at how much natural light was flooding in through the glass wall, it looked simply magical and will be the perfect light for a first dance for those Summer Weddings and Ceremonies in those Winter months. As you can see, excitingly the gorgeous wood floor is down, all we need are some chandeliers, and skirting boards and we’re almost ready for a stunning Millbridge Court Wedding Ceremony.
The Dining Hall, similar to that of the Ceremony Hall, has had the internal scaffold removed and the wooden floor has been put down over the weekend. The wall lights have also been put up and will add a great soft lighting option for Wedding Breakfasts throughout the year.
Although the Dining Hall has always looked large throughout the building process and with a capacity of 150 it always needed to be a very big space, the size of the room now that the structure is completed really does take my breath away every time I see it. The beams add such an amazing amount of drama to the room and manage to add traditional barn qualities to an otherwise contemporary space.
This week, we had the arrival of our bi-folding doors and they are well worth the wait. With one glass door able to open and close individually and the other 3 panels folding away completely it really does bring the outside in and when pulled back, makes Millbridge Court feel like it’s open sided. The slate patio has also been put down and will extend to the lawns; in the milder months it will be filled with gorgeous outside seating areas creating the perfect central location for an outdoor drinks reception.
Now, with the final photos I just wanted to show you all how breathtaking Millbridge Court looks from underneath the Arbour. Even from that distance, the inside of the Dining Hall and Ceremony Hall are visible and I can’t wait to see them both full of Wedding guests having the most wonderful celebrations.
And it only seemed right to show you the view of the beautiful Surrey Countryside behind the Arbour. The most magical backdrop for an outside ceremony or on those chillier days, for some couples photos under the hand made and loving crafted structure.
