Bridesmaids In Charcoal Grey For A Foliage Filled Winter Wedding

Every last detail of Debbie and Liam’s foliage filled winter wedding was loving sourced or created by the couple, along with a little help from family and friends…

The final result is beautiful, cohesive and elegant, never straying from the white, grey and green colour palette, which works perfectly with the dark and woody tones of The West Mill.

Debbie chose our favourite Maya dresses in charcoal grey for her bridesmaids, and don’t they look gorgeous? It’s a dark shade, particularly for weddings, but I can’t think of a dress better suited to this occasion quite frankly, it’s the perfect blend of sequin and tulle.

Images come from the lovely Grace Elizabeth. Her style is so beautiful, it’s always a pleasure to feature Grace’s work.

Rainbow Tassel Bunting Wedding At Industrial Venue The West Mill

Industrial venues don’t come much better than The West Mill. It’s such a striking space with oodles of personality, but it’s also very much a blank canvas for couples. Laura and Joe filled the rooms with colourful rainbow tassel bunting, macrame and brightly coloured blooms. They wanted to bring a festival vibe to their wedding, which I think they most definitely did. The final result is so beautiful and just brimming with joy.

Look out for Laura’s incredible engagement ring, which I’ve been swooning over and the universally popular (and flattering) Maya bridesmaids dresses, which must be THE dresses of 2018 weddings. And for good reason – they are just beautiful.

Nadia & Alex

There isn’t one part of this gorgeous industrial wedding at The West Mill in Derby that you’re not going to love. The venue itself is jaw dropping with its exposed bricks, hanging pendants, and large open space. Add the styling talents of The Vintage House That Could with lots of lovely travel and adventure decor and props, and your pinning fingers are going to be twitching. But is it any wonder the theme is so fabulous when our two stunning brides Nadia & Alex are both textile and furniture designers.

There are lots of more copper details to feast your eyes ups, including the bridesmaid ASOS dresses and coverups, plus an immense greenery installation by Vanda Vase floral design, framing those adorable vows.

Capturing all the love is Rosie, who made sure every emotion is felt and treasured in her stills.

And if you’ve fallen for this industrial venue as much as us, take a look at these lovely real weddings too.

Charlotte & James

A little festive cheer for us all this cold lunchtime – in the form of Charlotte and James’ cosy winter wedding at The West Mill Derby. We always love a stylish winter wedding, there’s no need to go hard on the tinsel just because your wedding coincides with Christmas. Foliage, sparkly lights and an elegant wreathe are all you need.

Images come from the lovely Chris and Anii at Bloom Weddings, who have captured some truly gorgeous shots. I always love seeing things from a different perspective on the big day and if you look carefully through this edit you’ll see some really thoughtful images. Oh and two last things – Charlotte’s HAIR. She also changed into her slippers for the party. I think I love her…

Sophie & Sam

The more weddings I see from The West Mill Derby, the more I fall in love with the place! The exposed brick, the Georgian paned windows and the gorgeous outside courtyard space make every single angle the perfect backdrop to your wedding photographs.

Today we’re sharing Sophie and Sam’s industrial but oh-so-stylish wedding day which is styled to perfection. There’s the perfect amount of sparkle from Sophie’s beaded Eliza Jane Howell gown and an extra addition of cute in the form of their little boy – anyone who is having lots of children at their wedding needs to read about the goodie bags they put together for the littles at this wedding, such lucky children.

The lovely images come from Han and Toby at Red On Blonde, whose weddings are always a pleasure to share…
