The West Mill Wedding Photographer

Helen & Jonny got married at gorgeous The West Mill wedding venue in Derby & what a fantastic wedding it was! Helen & I met when I was at University for Photography in Nottingham & have kept in touch ever since. It’s been a real delight to follow her story over the past 10 years & to see how happy she & Jonny are together, even more so when their daughter Eva arrived. Eva’s naming ceremony took place in October 2015 which I photographed – before they had even seen the photographs Helen messaged me ‘I keep meaning to ask if you would photograph our wedding! We recently put down the deposit & confirmed to get married at The West Mill in Derby on April 28th 2017, please say you are available! Jonny said to me yesterday, make sure you message Natalie & ask so we get her!’. Of course I was available & of course I was delighted to capture the wedding day story for this lovely family.

Tattoos, skulls, graffiti, tutus, Nirvana

The West Mill was the perfect setting for Helen & Jonny’s wedding, which the couple decided would have hints of copper, skulls & live graffiti art for their guests to enjoy. Eva toddled around wearing a lovely lilac tutu with a leather jacket & DM boots – SO CUTE! And can we please give Helen’s amazing hair a mention – total hair goals! These are the weddings I absolutely LOVE to photograph – weddings that are a real representation of who a couple are, which focus around friends & family having a good party! And a first dance to a melodic version of Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ was the perfect start to an evening of dancing – I can’t really put into words the amazingness of Helen & Jonny’s wedding day & I had constant goosebumps the whole day.

Helen, Jonny, Eva – so much love to all of you & a hand-on-heart THANK YOU for having me as photographer for your wedding at The West Mill! Nx
