Lauren & Sam | The West Mill
Lauren and Sam had a really cool vision for their wedding day, and we knew that as soon as we met them! The wedding took place at The West Mill, Derby, and was a stunning whimsical and bohemian party. Their morning prep was really relaxed and fun to photograph! They first started getting ready at The Pentahotel and then moved onto The West Mill to get changed. Lauren walked down the aisle to Sam like a beautiful boho vision, they had a legal ceremony along with a guitarist which everyone enjoyed. Her gorgeous Rembo styling dress looked absolutely amazing with the floral crown and Sam looked dapper in his Navy NEXT suit.
After the ceremony they were showered with confetti, and then we went and did some beautiful portraits. The West Mill is a photographers dream as there is so much to work with and these guys were so comfortable together and just laughed the whole time! Lauren & Sam had bought some smoke bombs and Lauren really wanted lots photos with her bridesmaids so we combined the two for some colourful shots of the ladies together.
During the reception they had live music, which gave the afternoon a really chilled vibe. We loved the decorations that Lauren and Sam had such as the gold pineapples, dreamcatchers, charcoal candles, script stationery and gin bottles! For dinner they had a host chef platter where one person on the table was chief carver of the meat! It was fun and we loved that everyone had different aprons on. After dinner they had a doughnut wall, which they had instead of cake and made for some cool photos of them scoffing the doughnuts together! We also really loved that they had a hat party in the evening and everyone wore crazy hats on the dance floor.
It was such a stunning wedding to photograph, and we also did the video for Lauren and Sam’s wedding too!
