Chloe & Jamie: Chic Industrial Wedding at The West Mill, Darley Abbey, Derbyshire

Chloe & Jamie’s wedding day was industrial yet romantic in style, and over and above everything else.. just effortlessly cool! The setting for their day was the fab West Mill in Derbyshire, which Chloe and Jamie found once settling on an industrial style for their big day. We just loved how each floor caters to a different aspect of their day: the ceremony, wedding breakfast, drinks reception and evening party!

Chloe wowed us all as she walked down the aisle in a stunning Suzanne Neville dress, full length veil and carrying a huge bouquet of soft pinks and greens, a look she later added an edge to with a leather jacket.

Their emotion-filled ceremony was beautiful and incorporated a religious blessing from Chloe’s granddad who is a vicar, bringing a real closeness and sense of family to their day. They said their vows in front of a bespoke calligraphy backdrop, featuring lyrics from Into My Arms from Nick Cave, with joyful readings by friends and family and lots of happy tears.

For their wedding breakfast, they opted for long tables decorated with garlands of greenery, succulents, candles and handwritten place names. The pretty romantic flowers contrasted beautifully with the industrial nature of the venue and really brought the style of their wedding together.

The party had a real nightclub/bar evening feel to it, and kept the momentum of their day going, and we left them to dance away to a fab DJ.

Huge love and thanks to Kate Sharp Photography for having me along to second shoot!
