A January wedding at The West Mill

A January wedding at The West Mill is where it’s at!! It doesn’t matter what the weather is doing – there’s space for everyone and beautiful photos to be had inside and out! The perfect wedding venue!

Holly got ready upstairs on the top floor of The West Mill with all her ladies. She looked beautiful in her Jasmine Bridal dress complete with gorgeous diamonte headlet (a forehead bracelet) and Games of Thrones inspired fur wrap! How cool is that? Honestly, we absolutely loved her headpiece – Sooooooo so beautiful!  After a few tears at the first look, Holly’s dad walked her down the aisle with a beaming smile and a Peaky Blinders flat cap. He looked cool as you like! If I look half as cool as that when I’m his age, I’ll be a happy man! Lewis was waiting patiently at the front with his brother and best man, Dale.

Then out into the winter sunshine for confetti, drinks and nibbles – everyone entertained by one of the best magicians we’ve seen – so smooth! We love this time of year – The sun is so low in the sky. It’s not harsh, it’s just beautiful all afternoon and Holly and Lewis truly lapped it up. We don’t really pose our couples during our photo sessions if we can help it, we merely ask them to hang in there together and just be nice to each other for a couple of minutes. Holly and Lewis were perfect together, almost forgetting everything that was going on around them, purely swept up in each others presence. A perfect couple.  Before we knew it, it was time to head in for dinner, then some great speeches. We weren’t booked to stick around into the evening but Holly and Lewis had asked for some “cool” styled shots around the venue in the evening – So we made a little plan and took 10 minutes out of the evening reception to play with some lights and capture some cool images before we left them to party the night away.

This was a great day, Holly & Lewis are a fab couple and we wish them all the luck in the world for their future together!! Here are just a few of our favourites from the day… Turn it up LOUD, hit ‘full screen’ and enjoy!!
