Your Love Story?

We met back in 2013 in Nottingham, I knew he was marriage material when he met me at the train station with a latte! First impression meant everything, so I knew how to make an everlasting one by spilling coffee all over Jacob’s aunties white suite within days of meeting each other. Three years passed and we had our first child (our fury little man Alfred) and moved in together. In October 2015 I took Jacob to a log cabin and wrote a load of letters giving hints to surprises, having a 2 hour massage and a personal chef cook you dinner with a candle lit balcony in the middle of nowhere was the moment that all time stood still and I must of spent a good 2 minutes on my knees before asking Jacob to marry me. Fast forward to 2019, two houses later and much planning we tied the knot at The West Mill.

What was your inspiration and vision for your day?

We fell in love with the building the moment we got engaged back in 2013, we hunted around and came across The West Mill in the early days it was opened, we instantly fell in love with it, however our thoughts of The West Mill were exceeded when we walked in, we instantly knew it was to be. We visited no other venues because we knew at that point in time it was the place we would marry. We knew this was the venue at all we needed to make it our own was to add our colour scheme of mustard, grey and blue.

Why did you choose The West Mill Venue?

The venue itself has a very industrial rustic feel to it, which our home décor is, and we love that kind of style. Our vision primarily was based on The West Mill itself, being such a historic and industrial building with such raw features preserved we only needed to add a few personal details.

Did you do any DIY projects?

We created all our stationary from;


-menu cards and thank you cards

-confetti cones

-happy tears tissue boxes


Tell us about the details…

Jayne at the Flower Room created our arrangements. All our groomsmaids had bouquets and buttonholes for the gentleman. We also had our centre pieces and milk churns filled with flowers created by Jayne. Our colour scheme was mustards, grey and blue – so we had some beautiful yellow craspedia contrasted by thistles.

What was on the Menu?

Drinks Reception

We provided our own beers, cider and prosecco for our guest for our wedding reception as well as opting in for Canpes Tomato Salsa Crostini with Mozzarella; Pulled Pork, Sage and Apple Bon Bon and Chicken Liver Parfait with Red Onion Marmalade

Wedding Breakfast


We provided our own wine and beers for the wedding breakfast – We couldn’t thank Jenkinsons enough for their services, so accommodating and professional as well as outstanding food! We opted for Braised Ox Cheek with a Leek and Potato Rosti for starters then chose to host a roast. Host a Roast went down extremely well, it was a great laugh amongst the tables and to this day our guest still mentions the meal for this.

What was your favourite part of the wedding?

It’s hard to say one moment exact part as there is so many times throughout the day hold their own special moment. But we would have to say the best part was after the ceremony spending 5 minutes alone and then walking out through the main door entering a confetti tunnel as Mr & Mr Thackray-Lovett. 

Do you have any advice for future brides & grooms?

Take moments out, step back and just watch your guest, spend 5 minutes together throughout the day as you can easily lose 2 hours saying hello and goodbye to everyone.

Can you sum up your wedding day in 3 words?
