Kristina & Tom – The West Mill, Derby

I can’t thank Kristina & Tom enough for having us at The West Mill in mid-November, a truly amazing day, at such a stunning venue.

3 weeks on and I can’t stop smiling at them

The West Mill, Derby.

A converted mill hidden away in the centre of Derby, The West Mill is the perfect set-up for any winter wedding. With four specialised floors, it’s easy to see why it is so well renowned for being one of the best venues in the area.

It was a brilliant day from start to finish, not least because of the atmosphere, the food and the setup were all spot-on too. Kristina & Tom’s hard work truly paid off to produce a memorable wedding.

Kristina & Tom hired an amazing team, who really helped make the day.

Included among the brilliant suppliers were Ali Gunn, Makeup Artist & Elle Debelle from Tier Hairdressing. They made sure the bridal party looked incredible. Details throughout were also carefully chosen and really complimented the venue and looked great! Kristina’s stunning dress was from the Wedding Quarter in Birmingham, and their Cake was from S&J Cakes. DJ Jeremy Prince made sure the first dance and party were one of the best.

With genuine smiles through the initial nerves, the ceremony was moving and just beautiful. Friends offered fantastic readings and added to the speeches later on. The Father of the Bride and Tom’s speeches were warm, emotional and funny in all the right places. Tom’s Speech was arguably one of the best speeches from a groom I’d heard all year. As if too difficult to follow, Tom’s brother Mike absolutely nailed the best man’s speech.

The Perfect Set-up

We lucked out with the weather, Sun in November is always welcome and it didn’t disappoint, it looks beautiful when the sun sets at the West Mill and we caught it just right. It was cold but Kristina & Tom were true troopers and it was great to be able to capture them together on their wedding day.

Unforgettable moments included the calls of “Pashtina” during the group shots and cutting of the cake by the old cigarette machine. Tom also treated us to his sublime moves during the first dance with guests whooping and smiling. The whole day was just great to be a part of!

Thanks, guys, I will never forget this x
