Disco balls and confetti at the ready!

The day started off with a buzz of excitement as Nic and her bridal squad got ready in the beautiful bridal suite, sipping champagne and sharing laughs as they got pampered to perfection. Meanwhile, Mark and his groomsmen were busy getting dapper in the beautiful Mill Cottage.

As the ceremony drew near, Nic and Mark's loved ones gathered in the Cotton Quarter. Nic and Mark had done the "legal bit' prior to their wedding day at The West Mill, and so they exchanged "I do's," with a special ceremony led by one of their best friends, making their ceremony incredibly heartfelt.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests spilled out into the courtyard for an epic confetti tunnel, and plenty of photo ops against the stunning backdrop of The West Mill. The atmosphere was buzzing with love and excitement as everyone mingled and celebrated the happy couple.

But the real magic happened when it was time for their couples photos, that golden light came out at just the right time before the rain made an appearance.

The dining space at The West Mill was scattered with twinkly disco balls and the theme for their seating plan was birds. For Nic and Marks favours, they had Rhubarb gin made from their allotment.

As the sun set and the stars came out, Nic and Mark danced the night away surrounded by their loved ones, creating memories that would last a lifetime.
