Wedding Videography at the West Mill in Derby

Is there any better Wedding venue in Derby than the West Mill? You’d be hard pressed to find one that offers a Wedding videographer like me such beautiful scenery to capture, both a mix of gorgeous nature and the rustic charm of the Mill itself. Located in Darley Abbey, Derbyshire, this is one of Derby’s premier award winning Wedding venues.

Beautiful wedding videos shot at the West Mill, Derby

In August I paid the West Mill yet another visit for Michaela and Daniel’s Wedding day. I was there to capture their big day in all it’s glory on video and as always it was an absolute pleasure to be back.

Bridal Prep

The morning started at Michaela and Daniel’s home, just a few minutes from the West Mill. The short journey no doubt took a lot of pressure off the couple when it comes to getting to the venue. I got footage of some lovely bridal prep at the house and then shot over to a friend of the Groom’s house to video some of his preparations too.

Then off to the West Mill to capture the final bridal prep. I never tire if seeing the beautiful Wedding dresses and Michaela’s was no exception. Michaela and Daniel’s little baby was also in on the preparations and looked as cute as anything.


Then on to the ceremony on the top floor of the West Mill. What a gorgeous setting for a Wedding, it really is. Big bright windows lighting up the lovely rustic colours, this is a Wedding videographers dream.

After the vows we’re onto the celebrations and speeches. Some beautiful words delivered by the Groom, there was barely a dry eye in the room. Emotion, love, saying nice things, with a hint of humour is without doubt the key to a fantastic speech and one that will look and sound fantastic on your Wedding video in years to come.

The day was topped off with a beautiful cake cutting and first dance, with an evening of partying!

Having filmed at the West Mill on a number of occasions in the past this really does make the day run so much smoother for me.
