West Mill Wedding Photography

West Mill Wedding of Marie and Ben

The West Mill wedding venue is Grade 1 listed building in Derbyshire alongside the River Derwent. It was formerly an industrial cotton spinning mill before being transformed into an exclusive-use wedding venue split over 4 floors.

In the summer of 2021, I had the pleasure of photographing Marie and Ben’s wedding which was amazing from start to finish.

The day started off with typical English summer downpours but fortunately, we did have some breaks after the wedding ceremony and speeches meaning we could take photos outdoors too. It has to be said though that no amount of rain could have dampened Marie and Ben’s wedding day. It was a day filled will laughter (and lots of laughter!), love and emotion from start to finish.

This was my first time photographing at the West Mill in Derby and I loved the lighting and tones of the wedding venue inside. From a photographer’s perspective, it’s a great backdrop both inside and outside so even if it’s raining, there’s plenty of photographic opportunities.

Below I’ve shared some of my favourite photos from the wedding day along with a short video with more photos so that you can feel the true essence of the day.

Thank you so much to Marie and Ben for their lovely review on their wedding photography:-

“Alison recently photographed our wedding day and an engagement shoot prior to this, and her photos are fabulous. She captured the day and all the moments along the way so beautifully. We have the most amazing collection of photos of so many of our guests and loved ones to cherish looking so happy and relaxed. She has been fantastic from our first introduction at a wedding fair, all the way through the planning and on the day, we didn’t even know she was there at times. She made us feel so comfortable and we literally couldn’t be happier with our pictures and the memories we have of our day thanks to her insight. She even included our baby boy in our engagement photos and made it such a special experience for us. I would recommend Alison for certain and will be in touch with her again in the future for more family photos. Thank you so much Alison xx”
