{Real Wedding} Gemma & Andy – A Cotton Themed Winter Wedding

The history of The West Mill is something rather special, dating back to the early 1800s the building started life as an industrial cotton spinning mill and so when we heard that the lovely Gemma & Andy were going to add cotton themed details to their big day we were over the moon and couldn’t wait to see it come to life.

Their November wedding day was just beautiful; full of love, laughter and DIY details and they even managed to get outside for some stunning wedding portraits. With help from family and friends Gemma & Andy added cotton themed touches to the venue such as their statement ribbon and lace ceremony backdrop and cotton plant table centerpieces which looked superb teamed with tealights. Their guests were kept entertained throughout the day by musicians, magicians and even the little ones were taken care of with Dream Day Childcare on hand. They enjoyed a delicious Wedding Breakfast prepared by Jenkinsons and celebrated into the night with a fabulous band.

Congratulations Gemma & Andy! It was pleasure to host your wedding here at The West Mill.

Thank you so much for Anna of Anna Pumer photography for sharing her images with us.
