SARAH AND TOM'S WEST MILL WEDDING


Thinking of having your wedding at The West Mill in Derby? Then you’ll love this for wedding inspiration!


Sarah and Tom got married at The West Mill, which is a charming, stylish old mill in Derby next to a beautiful river. It was such a romantic day and even the sun made an appearance! 


The ceremony


The intimate ceremony was on the gorgeous top floor of the venue. During the ceremony they read their own vows - it was such a personal service. They decorated the area with flowers and white rose petals which I loved. The reception was also held at The West Mill. I love this venue because it's stylish and relaxed. It also has lots of natural light too which is perfect for candids and portraits.


Weddings at The West Mill are amazing because the grounds offer the perfect backdrop for some epic, romantic couple portraits.



WHY THE WEST MILL IS A GREAT PLACE TO GET MARRIED


The West Mill has a really laid-back atmosphere and is one of the coolest places to get married in Derby. The venue offers top class food and there are so many incredible spots that are perfect for photos.


THE PARTY


The couple had drinks and canapés in the afternoon and live music and a Photo Booth in the evening. They had dinner at the venue and their first dance was to their favourite song. They finished off the evening with shots all round!

THE COUPLE


Sarah wore a floor length lace dress and Tom wore a navy suit - they looked really stylish. Sarah had white flowers in her bouquet mixed with beautiful green foliage. She also wore Charlotte Mills shoes which tied the look together perfectly. She wore a floor length veil too, her whole look was simple, modern elegance. This never goes out of fashion!


Sarah and Tom got in touch with me 4 years ago and throughout this time we became friends. COVID meant that they had to postpone their wedding twice so when they finally got married this year it was one hell of a party!


Throughout the 4 years we kept in touch and so much has happened in that time. I've loved being a friend to Sarah and Tom over the years. We even have plans to meet up again after the wedding for a catch up and a glass of red!

ADVICE FOR PLANNING YOUR WEDDING AT THE WEST MILL, DERBY


Weddings at The West Mill are so effortlessly cool and it's not your typical wedding venue. The team works together flawlessly to create the best experience for their couples and their guests. It's a great place to get married because everything is in one place so you can have your whole wedding day here.


My advice if you are planning a wedding at this awesome venue would firstly be to start early. Because it's so unique, they get booked up fast so try and reserve your date as soon as you can! I also recommend bringing LOTS of confetti. The venue has the perfect spot right outside for an epic confetti line (just make sure that the confetti is real flowers). If you think you have enough confetti - get more! There is never too much. The more the better.

WHAT SARAH & TOM HAD TO SAY...


"Rebecca is AMAZING. Professional and friendly in equal measures. Her communication is second to none and was so responsive as our wedding was cancelled twice over 2 years due to Covid. On the day she was incredible, it was like having a friend capturing our special moments for us. We could not be more thrilled with the results. The photos are gorgeous and it makes me want to do it all over again. Thank you so much"
