Industrial elegance in the heart of Derbyshire. The West Mill is a firm favourite of mine for so many reasons. The industrial architecture, the riverside setting, the 4 floors of space and the awesome team behind it.

I'm super proud to be a recommended supplier at this gorgeous industrial wedding venue. The West Mill is an exclusive use venue and they don't charge you corkage, so you bring the booze and the vibes, and *ahem* I'll come along and capture the magic.

The West Mill's little sister, The River Mill exploded onto the Derby wedding venue scene in 2022 and has been making waves on the river Derwent since.

Perfect for smaller of more intimate weddings but still with that industrial charm, The River Mill has gorgeous space inside and outside for your big day. There's also accommodation on site too.

Where to start, every single one of Cripps & Co's venue are a dream and Grangefields in Derbyshire is no exception. 

Mixing the old stone barn with industrial modern architecture, Grangefields is a blank canvas and has you covered from start to finish. Enjoy their incredible food cooked over the open flames of their Asado grill with seating for 175 guests then dance the night away until 12.30am.

Where are my carefree, outdoor loving couples at? The Hidden Hive could just be the venue for you. This purpose built tipi wedding venue in South Derbyshire is one of my faves. Surrounded by greenery and a lake it has bags of space and yet feels intimate a world away from everything.

The Honey Bee Barn is the perfect place for your outdoor ceremony and then spill outside for drinks reception. The tipis themselves can seat150 for your wedding breakfast - think gourmet bbqs and food trucks. Then dance under the stars in the evening. Perfect right?

Elegant & Intimate, just two of the words I'd use to describe Amalfi White. Giving all the city vibes but in the heart of Melbourne Derbyshire, Amalfi White is a great choice for those wanting laidback but classy vibes for their wedding day.

From the Ball Room, to The white Bar you can host weddings from 5 - 150 guests and you know the food is going to be fantastic when the venue is also home to a 5 star restaurant & bar.
