Kelly + Ben

Well firstly, if you follow us and our blog, you’ll already know we LOVE The West Mill in Derbyshire. What’s not to love. It’s one of those venues that no matter how many times we head there, it still gives us a warm comforting feeling as we’re welcomed with open arms. We never get bored of it. There’s always a little surprise at every wedding…Something, or somewhere we’ve not photographed before – it really is the wedding venue that just keeps on giving, and it’s totally the place to get married in Derbyshire.


So, on to Kelly and Ben – Equally awesome people. You guys were so much fun together. Your friends and family were a great laugh all day and we loved hanging out with you all.

We also love weddings where everything all happens at the same location. Guests don’t have to worry about driving from a church and once they’re there they can all relax and just enjoy the day. This really shows and creates such a lovely atmosphere there at the West Mill. While Kelly was getting ready and having her hair and makeup done upstairs, we could hear all the wedding guests arriving for the ceremony and the levels of excitement went through the roof!

Once Kelly had straightened her hair (for the million’th time 😂 lol!!!)  we headed out and before you knew it, Kelly and Ben were now husband and wife – There was nothing left to do other than head outside, throw some very glittery confetti and get the party started.

One of the little surprises that The West Mill gave us this time we were there was the yellow Laburnum tree that had conveniently come out in full blossom for us. We noticed in earlier in the day and said we had to use it for some photos and it looked stunning!! It’s great to have an extra splash of colour that isn’t always there all year round!!

Time flew by and we all headed upstairs for dinner, speeches, a couple of cool photos in the bar booths and to really get partying with the awesome band kicking off the first dance.


We had such a fun time with you guys and THANK YOU for trusting us to photograph your wedding the way we saw it through our lens. It really means a lot to us and we hope we’ve captured some great memories of an amazing day for you both!
