Sunny Wedding at Derby’s Top Venue

Meet Jacy & Craig. They pickedĀ one of Derbyshire’s best wedding venues, to play host to their big day. It was a beautifully sunny Tuesday in April that their two families became one, and I had the honour of capturing their special day with my natural, unposed documentary approach. A perfect fit for their fun, relaxed, and joy-filled wedding.

Unposed Bridal Prepapation Photography

I started the day with Jacy at the recently opened Mill House, a beautifully renovated old building that is now part of the complex, and has a number of amazing rooms for people to stay in. Once hair and makeup were finished, we all moved over to the bridal dressing room on the top floor of the main mill building to carry on the getting ready, and possibly a few more glasses of something bubbly! I had a good friend of mine, Simon Atkins along for the day, so that both Jacy and Craig could have their morning’s photographed. This is one of the main advantages of having a second photographer. Now they can both see what the other was up to!

Wedding Ceremony in an Industrial Mill Venue

These guys loved the venue’s industrial feel, with all of the bare brick and ironwork still visible. It makes for a really different and unusual venue if a stately home or country house isn’t your thing. And with all those floors to play with, it makes planning your wedding day timings a doddle! After the ceremony, it was outside for the now infamous Confetti Tunnel. The wedding breakfast room was already setup, so there was no lengthy turnaround time, so after some drinks and mingling, it was time for food and speeches.

For the evening, they’d hired the fantastic Adam Thomas and the Souljers to perform, and these guys put on one hell of a show! If you’re undecided about a wedding band, seriously give these guys a shout! They had the dancefloor full and everyone, including the mums, up and dancing. Spot Craig’s mum throwing some devil horns in the photos! And so I left the happy couple, grooving and smooching on the dancefloor. Which is how all weddings should end really.

Thanks to these amazing suppliers for making the day a huge success!
