Capturing the Magic of Laura & Tom's Wedding at the River Mill, Derby

I recently had the incredible opportunity to photograph the wedding of Laura and Tom at the stunning River Mill in Derby. From the moment I arrived, I knew I was in a special place. Nestled just off the River Derwent, this venue was the perfect setting for an early summer wedding.

The Venue

Inside the River Mill, the ambiance was bright and welcoming. The interior, renovated just a few years ago, still retained its fresh, modern charm. The River Mill is part of a trio of exceptional wedding venues in the area, with the West Mill and Darley Abbey Mills located just a stone's throw away. Each venue adds its unique character to the picturesque surroundings.

Timeless Beauty

One of the most captivating aspects of the River Mill is the Victorian cobbled roads just outside the venue. With the sun shining down, these cobblestones provided a timeless backdrop for photos. Laura and Tom, familiar with the area from their time living nearby, guided me to some of the best spots across the river for their couple portraits. Their local knowledge allowed us to capture stunning images that truly reflected their connection to this beautiful place.

A Night to Remember

As the celebration continued into the early hours, I was able to capture some unforgettable moments on the dance floor. The competitive dance floor games added an extra layer of fun and excitement, making for some fantastic action shots.


Thank you, Laura and Tom, for giving me the honor of photographing your special day and for the chance to shoot at such an extraordinary venue. Your wedding was a beautiful celebration of love, and I am grateful to have been a part of it.

Congratulations, Laura and Tom!
