A West Mill wedding

A West Mill wedding – is there anything better! We love this beautiful old building so well renovated that they’ve just won a RICS award!! Kassie got ready on the top floor with five happy bridesmaids, a lovely mum, a hairdresser and a makeup artist – it was so full but so much fun – lots of giggles! The girls wore flattering pale pink dresses from Essence Designs while Kassie had a stunning number by Morilee.

The wedding ceremony

The ceremony on The Cotton Quarter floor was emotional  – the entrance music The Forrest Gump theme by Alan Silvestri (one of my favourites) was so emotive and made the perfect start to a lovely ceremony with readings and even a song by one of the bridesmaids! After the ceremony we would usually move out into the courtyard but it was chucking it down so everyone enjoyed drinks downstairs instead.

Photos on the top floor

We had given up on the weather by this point, so us and the families headed to the top floor for some photos in front of their lovely hanging floral arch provided by the lovely Laura at Avant Garden. There was also time for some Stop Motion silliness too! Then dinner and speeches 😃 In the evening, the weather had finally brightened up so we headed out for a little walk by the river.

The evening reception

Onto The Spinning Room for the evening reception, Kassie’s dad made a Dessert Bar and they filled it with brownies and doughnuts – YUM! And there were a range of wedding cakes too! Plastic Pantomine were the entertainment for the evening. It was a brilliant day, Kassie & James really are one of the nicest couples – Kassie is so beautiful and smiley and James is a real gentleman – it was such a pleasure to be part of their wedding 😍
