West Mill Darley Abbey | Derbyshire Wedding Photographer | Emma & Martin

Being a wedding photographer means you travel to some amazing places and you get to see some incredibly beautiful venues, but not all wedding venues are created equal. When I went to visit West Mill at Darley Abbey I knew it was something special and I couldn't wait for Emma and Martin's day to arrive in order to get the chance to photograph them there. I'm happy to say, it really didn't disappoint!

Emma and her bridesmaids spent the morning getting ready in a beautiful little cottage not too far from the venue, before heading to West Mill where Emma was to get married to the man of her dreams. 

Despite the rain coming out to play (but hey, it's meant to be good luck on your wedding day, right?!) the spirits weren't dampened and the excitement and joy continued for the rest of the day. I always think one of the signs of a great wedding is one where the dance floor is full all night, and once the band started playing the guests were straight up for a boogie, ensuring a brilliant and fun end to what was such a great day for Emma, Martin and their friends and family.

Notley Abbey | Buckinghamshire Wedding Photographer | Kate & Matt

When you've had so much fun at a wedding, how do you choose just a few pictures to showcase it all. Tricky! 

Kate & Matt's big day started out at Kate's parents house before we headed to the beautiful Notley Abbey for the rest of the day. We even had the weather on our side, allowing everyone time to enjoy the first glimpses of summer this year and get outside into the sunshine. 

It was an amazingly relaxed day, though there were plenty of tears in the morning from Kate and her entourage but the eyes soon dried and the fun began! The rest of the day was simply a thoroughly enjoyable occasion all round, and once the music started that evening, the dance floor soon filled up and remained that way for the rest of the night. These guys sure can party!
