The West Mill – Prohibited Love Styled Wedding Shoot

The West Mill – Prohibited Love Styled Wedding Shoot

The West Mill Wedding Venue in Derbyshire

– The West Mill Wedding Venue, Derbyshire –

We love it when we’re asked to get involved in styled photoshoots and when it’s one of our favourite wedding venues, The West Mill, working with amazing suppliers, and the brief is to create something super cool, that’s dark and moody, with a touch of glamour, oh, and by the way, our guy model has some bad ass tattoos… Well, thats an easy one, I’m in!!

We started off the day shooting a few details followed by the first look, titled “Organic Urban” – lots of lovely green foliage from the very talented Nadia Di Tullio, coupled together with urban bonze, concrete and glass for amazing looking table details – the shoot looked stunning. So in keeping with the venue and bang on trend for the wedding industry at the moment. That’s why I love working with some of the best people in the wedding world – It always makes my life so much easier as a photographer and everything can’t help but look beautiful at the end of it all!

– The Guys –

The girls looked gorgeous in their Belle & Bunty dresses and floral headpieces by Florrie & Eve, but it was time to get the guys involved. With cool suits and some serious tattoos, I knew they were going to look great throughout the afternoon in the “prohibition” theme that we went for.
