We’d like to introduce one of the coolest wedding venues around – The West Mill. I think this is going to fast become one of our favourite wedding venues in The Midlands – Set in the middle of Darley Abbey Mills, this recently converted mill is one of the more trendy venues in the area with lots of scaffold boards hand crafted into furniture, Chesterfield sofas everywhere, urban pipework on show and a stack of awesome light fittings throughout the building. If you’re looking for a kind of New York loft style wedding venue vibe, set in the heart of Derbyshire, this is the place to be folks!!

So, not only was this wedding lovely because of a great venue, but Kimberley and Ben were awesome too, and all of their friends and family equally nice – Everyone was there to have a great time and enjoy the day! We found Kimberley in the morning doing her final preparations in the bridal room upstairs at The West Mill, hidden away from the guys who were wandering around downstairs checking everything was in place and ready to go.

After a beautiful ceremony and a very unique reading made up of Disney quotes, it was off outside to brave the wind for a few family photos before whisking them off together for a short walk by the river. It’s one of those venues where it doesn’t really matter if it rains as the inside is so cool, so we headed in as soon as possible to take advantage of the features across the 4 floors before dinner. The wedding breakfast room looks great, all decorated with autumnal orange and greens to match the outfits and lots of copper vases dotted around which looked awesome in this middle of this old industrial venue.

Speeches done, we decided to whisk Kim and Ben outside very briefly for a bit of light painting and a sparkler photo or two with all the guests to finish the night off before lots of dancing into the evening.

Big thanks to Kimberley and Ben for being so great on the day – here are a few of our favourites from the day!
