10 Years On

Great Barn, Micklefidl Hall, Before & After | Jon Kempner Photography

I am very fortunate to have been photographing Micklefield Hall as a location and event venue for over 10 years now. For the past 5 years The Great Barn at Micklefield, a 16th Century threshing barn, has undergone a magnificent restoration and now is one of the most stunning venues for weddings and events. In 2015 the restored Great Barn was awarded the Chilterns Building Design Award. Searching around in my archive of Micklefield Hall images, I managed to find a photo taken when the barn was in it’s derelict state in 2005 – and side by side with the latest interior photo you can see the outstanding transformation that has been made with incredible detail and craftsmanship throughout the restoration.
