An Autumn wedding at The West Mill

It’s fair to say, that when the Scots cross the border, they come to party, and boy did they party!! However, this wedding was sooooo much more than a cool party. A wedding day filled with class, sophistication, style, laughter, tears and some amazing people!

We’d met Jodie and Craig ages ago, but ever since, I’ve be looking forward to their wedding. They’re both just so chilled out, they’re great together, fun to be around and just a good laugh. What more could you want from a bride and groom!? Oh yeah, how about an amazing industrial wedding venue in the heart of Derbyshire, a stunning handmade dress from Baroque Couture and simply flawless flowers from one of the most talented and creative people in the business, Nadia Di Tullio.

The Ceremony

We started the day photographing guests arriving. The sight of many hip flasks is always a good sign that it’s going to be a fun day and Craig and his brothers were already having a great time before we even got started. With Jodie looking stunning in her dress, it was time to head down the aisle to get married. With the right names said (eventually!! lol) and a couple of lovely readings, we all headed out into the sunshine for confetti, prosecco and some photos! The low, harsh winter sun can pose many challenges to us photographers, but sometimes it’s truly beautiful. With the sun beaming through the original windows of the Mill, we couldn’t resist making good use of it for some quick photos before dinner. It was stunning.

With speeches complete, it was time for me to put down my camera and jump onto my sax to play throughout the wedding breakfast (more info here). It makes it a super busy day for me without any breaks, but I flippin’ love it!

Jodie and Craig had seen one of our cool group photos and asked us for one of these, so with some willing volunteers, we stepped into the bar level booths and struck a few poses. You guys totally rocked it!

Party time

As if this day couldn’t get any more fun, there was a ceilidh which is, without a doubt, the BEST way to get everyone up and dancing and to get the party started. It was such a laugh finding out who did and didn’t know their left from their right *cough*, Jodie!

Thank you guys for such a fun day and for trusting us to photograph your wedding. It really does mean a lot to us and I hope you love the photos as much as we do! Here’s just a few of our favourites from the day but be sure to click through to the Full Gallery at the end of the page!
