Wedding at The West Mill

So, there is lots that was awesome about this wedding. Firstly the venue. For anyone that follows our blog, you’ll already know how much we love The West Mill. A beautifully converted industrial building in the heart of Derby’s creative district which oozes style and cool. Definitely one of the best wedding venues around!

Then there’s Sam and Charlie.  Two beautiful people who are joined not only by emotion and a love of food but by their business, The Family Tree. A great restaurant in the middle of Derbyshire which is centred around their whole family as a joint venture. What a great way to start out in married life.

Awesome venue, check! Gorgeous couple, check! Two massive foodies, double check! A dress, some flowers, bridesmaids, groomsmen, and a whole load of happy, fun guests waiting to watch them get married…… Check!

After we joined Sam in the bridal preparation room on the top floor there at the West Mill, it was time to head out and walk down the aisle to see an eagerly waiting Charlie, looking dapper in his cream suit. With them both successfully married we headed downstairs, braved the wind and headed outside for some photos and lots of confetti before it was dinner time.

After dinner followed speeches which means it was nearly time to get the party started. With the cake, cut and the first dance done, there was nothing left to do but dance the night away.

Thanks for a great day guys! Here’s just a small selection of our highlights, you can see the Full Gallery at the end of the page! 😀
