A woodland themed winter wedding
There simply isn’t enough room to express how much I loved photographing Lucy & Matt’s The West Mill wedding. Set in a former industrial mill in Derbyshire, The West Mill isn’t your typical wedding venue; with 4 floors of industrial charm, cool lighting and vintage furnishings.. I instantly fell in love with the place as soon as I entered.
Relaxed Mill wedding in Derbyshire
I started the morning with Lucy and her girls getting ready in the venue’s bridal room. I loved the dark green bridesmaid’s dresses Lucy had picked out, with her maid of honor in gold sequins. Lucy’s bouquet was filled with an arrangement of woodland flowers, acorns and feathers, also featuring in her hair which looked incredible with her Pronovias long sleeved dress. The room filled with emotion as Dad saw her for the first time!
After a beautiful ceremony with some personal vows, guests headed downstairs for drinks, listening to live acoustic music from Ben Haynes. I took Lucy & Matt upstairs for some photos and couldn’t resist taking some in the ceremony room and used the leather sofas for an epic group shot with their bridesmaids and ushers together.
Polly & Me styled the most stunning room for their reception, decorating the tables with tin cans filled with woodland flowers supplied by VAAS, rustic log slices, and a gold calligraphy table plan. Their evening kicked off with music from House of Chords making sure the party never stopped for all of their friends.
Thank you to Lucy & Matt for putting your trust in me to make some great memories.. I enjoyed every minute of your day! So great to work alongside Michael of Satin Pictures too who created an incredible film for them.
I can’t wait to head back to this incredible venue again 🙂
