The West Mill at Darley Abbey - Wedding Venue Launch
The West Mill in Derby is one of the UK's most distinctive and downright awesome wedding venues is now open! And I was there to document the opening launch
OK so they’ve only gone and pulled it off and The West Mill at Darley Abbey is now officially open! Four floors of awesome, slap bang on the Derwent river.
The development of the West Mill from a Grade disused former cotton mill into a spectacular, exclusive use, wedding venue with which I’ve been involved for some time.
On the weekend of the 25th of July 2015 the venue finally opened its doors and oh my it is incredible. Think Industrial Chic, Soho House, beautiful rustic features and a lot of attention to detail.
Set in grounds following the bend in the river Derwent, each of the four floors has its own purpose. The Cotton Quarter on the top floor is reserved for ceremonies. It even has its own grand piano and a separate bridal annex for brides to get some time out. The third is exclusively set up for the wedding breakfast. The Spinning Room on the second floor is dedicated to fun and partying with huge leather sitting booths and an incredible bar. Then the ground floor is a large multi-function space for an indoor reception, parties, or even a photobooth.
