Charlotte got ready in the bridal suite at the West Mill Wedding Venue and I couldn’t resist taking photos of her Jimmy Choos using the architecture of the building. Her floral bouquet by Nadia was breathtaking and smelt absolutely incredible; cannot recommend Nadia enough!
Jamie captured Tom’s prep at a local hotel a stones throw away from the venue before they headed to the pub for a quick pint.
The ceremony was perfectly lit for a late August wedding day with a wonderful floral installation by Nadia. There was plenty of room during the ceremony for two photographers and two videographers an additional video camera on a tripod. We were all able to work together to get the perfect end result. I highly recommend Jason – a great videographer.
The Confetti Shot:
Charlotte and Tom had been dreaming of seeing ‘the confetti shot’ and I’m so pleased to get them ‘one of their dreams’ – thanks
The wedding group shot:
Jason and I had to squeeze into a very tight little room to get this shot of all the guests; straight after confetti or just before going in for dinner is the perfect time to do a shot like this – you can guarantee everyone will be there!
Charlotte and Tom’s love for gin heavily influenced the reception room details; Nadia incorporated flowers into the design perfectly.
My favourite part of the day; we were unlucky at first as the sun was blocked by some buildings next to the mill so I decided we had to go slightly further afield to get the shots we wanted. Charlotte and Tom were very happy to take a walk up the lane to a nearby field for some fun! Thankfully the West Mill Wedding Venue was close to some open fields on a higher part of land. My natural light, relaxed photography style really shows here; at this point in the
Charlotte and Tom’s first dance was wonderful in this room; the west mill’s evening room is perfect as there is a lot of space for dancing and also sitting!
The West Mill Venue is now one of my favourite venues to photograph in and I really hope I get to become a regular West Mill Wedding Photographer.
