Carly & Matt
The West Mill is a fairly new venue situated in Derby. It has already become one of the most in demand wedding venues because of it’s bare brick walls, industrial feel and endless styling possibilities! Carly and Matt felt The West Mill was just perfect and went for a simple but elegant style with the help of Darby & Joan.
Over to Carly to tell you more…
“We got married at the West Mill because we loved the original features, attention to detail, rustic appearance and on the whole, the huge amount of space and exclusivity.
Our wedding was minimal, classic and elegant. We are not particularly fussy when it came to the styling and felt that the venue was beautiful enough without needing much more. We had a pianist during the ceremony who also played throughout the mulled wine and canapés and in the evening an amazing band played a range of old music.
Darby & Joan supplied all of the stationery and styled everything within the venue including the tables and flowers. My bouquet was made by a friend as a wedding gift.
My dress was vintage lace and I felt it was in keeping with the style of the venue. I tried a few on but fell in love as soon as I found this one!
My advice to future brides would be to just enjoy the day as it really does fly by! I would recommend hiring a band as it creates a better atmosphere in the evening and make sure the venue has lots of photograph opportunities inside!”
