The West Mill Wedding Venue in Derby was an awesome setting for the delightful Simon & Amy’s unique wedding.

 

The early 1800’s former mill is spread over four floors. Packed full of original features, it created an ambience that really did have the wow factor and provided us with a perfect backdrop for a wedding that was equally unique.  Natural light spilled in from all sides creating dramatic, rich shadows.  In contrast with the venue’s contemporary lighting, this made for a simply delightful set of images that were a pleasure to produce.  Amy’s preparation was carried out in The Dressing Room with it’s vintage charm and character, while Simon relaxed (if that is the right word!) with family and friends in The Gallery.  The ceremony itself took place on the top floor in The Cotton Quarter, with it’s stunning views across the river.   By the time drinks were being taken in the Gallery, the rain had started to pour and dictated that the photographs would be taken indoors… which really was a good thing (Albeit after some minor furniture re-arrangements!).  With four floors at our disposal, we slipped away for some exclusive portraits using the character, lighting and textures to our advantage (this is where the advantages of an engagement shoot definitely kicked in!)  When the daylight finally left us, the warmth of the house lights really came into their own, and using a subtle mix of off-camera flash and available light I was really able capture the ambience and character of the stunning West Mill Wedding Venue in all it’s new-found glory!  Enjoy this small selection of images from this wonderful couple’s big day!

  1. Wow!! Your work never fails to amaze me and this is no exception!! The venue looks great and you really brought it to life! I love the harmony created with light, tone & texture. A very emotive set of memories that I am sure the Bride & Groom will treasure for the rest of their lives together… and what a beautiful time piece for passing down their future generations! Truly exceptional!
