The West Mill is a unique and original wedding venue located in Derbyshire. Inspired by the converted warehouses in Shoreditch and New York, the Grade I listed building has been restored to the highest standard to transform the former Cotton Spinning Mill into a truly stunning wedding venue. Located on the riverbanks of the River Derwent over the historic weir, the venue is available for your exclusive use, giving you private access to four incredible floors and landscaped gardens.
This venue is breath taking in its entirety, the setting of the building and the interior, but also each level on its own is amazing. We were welcomed with open arms at the venue, the staff couldn’t of been more accommodating, The employees here 100% are committed to making this day the best it could ever be, well…it was better than we imaged, they went above and beyond. We never had to worry about anything, the understood our brief of the day, they made sure everything went smoothly it’s difficult to find the words to describe how amazing these people truly are. This venue having different floors for different sections of your wedding is amazing and makes your day flow with ease as once you are at the venue you can settle into your day and not have to worry about getting places. The fact they have gone out of their way to keep the heritage of this venue really adds those lost touches to the perfect day. We knew the moment we walked up to the door this is the place we wanted to start the rest of our life together.

WOW! What can we say about the West Mill and their amazing team other than you have our eternal gratitude for making mine and my husband’s day better than we could have imagined and hoped for. Our guests still talk about how incredible the venue and the people that work here are. Thank you to the Jenkinsons team for your service throughout the day, your professionalism and attention to detail was second to none. Our guests are still raving about the food (the best they have ever had at a wedding they constantly say). Thank you to the West Mill team for helping with the get in/out of all our decorations, drinks etc, the day ran without a single hitch. But mostly a massive thank you to Mirlah, our wedding co-ordinator, for ensuring that everything went to plan. From the moment we walked into our first planning meeting you were a star, and forever put our minds at ease. All the added extras you and the team did for us touched us deeply, we look back and we we are still thankful that we came across this wonderful place. I would recommend people travel from all over the world to get married here. Not only is the place as beautiful than anything you could imagine or want from your special day (It’s character is outstanding), but the team that work here deserve every medal under the sun. We wish we could relive the day over and over. All our love and best wishes for future weddings held here.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to amazing team at The West Mill. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. The West Mill is just magical. We have had such amazing feedback from all of our guests, who were just as in love with the venue as we are. The day ran so smoothly, and Emily was an absolute star. The team went out of their way to make everything perfect for us, and I couldn’t have wished for anything more. We have just had our pictures back from our photographer and I just cannot stop looking! I knew the minute I stepped out of the car at our first viewing that The West Mill was perfect for us, and it didn’t disappoint in any way. I cannot recommend the team, the venue, the location, the caterers any more. Thank you for making my wedding dreams come true!
