Last week saw The West Mill open up it’s doors to host our Spring Taster Events. Spread over two evenings, we welcomed our couples back to the venue with their family and friends to see the venue dressed top to bottom and try some delicious food. The events were a huge success and we owe so many thank yous to our handpicked suppliers who went above and beyond to style the venue and entertain our guests.
Stunning Flowers & Styling by Avant Garden.
Well what can we say, Laura & the team knocked it out of the park once again. From the stunning blooms to the the sequin table runners the venue looked stunning. Copper is still very much on trend for weddings of all seasons and so this beautiful set up was sure to inspire our wedding couples. All of the decor and props are available to hire through Avant Garden and the team can work with you to create bespoke hanging backdrops for all styles of weddings.

Stationery Details by Amy Bailey Designs
Now where would be without table stationery to let our guests know where they are seated? The lovely Amy Bailey married with us back in March 2016 and has since gone on to start her own stationery and design company. From the table table plan to the place cards, the gorgeously illustrated stationery worked seamlessly with the decor.

Fabulous Hand-Painted Banners by Darwin & Gray
We just had to have Stacey from Darwin & Gray create an epic banner for the ceremony floor but why stop there? Stacey kindly designed more mini banners for the cards and gifts and fabulous ‘I’m with Him/Her’ banners perfect for the backs of the chairs. Stacey designs and makes all her banners by hand which is perfect if you fancy something bespoke like your favourite quote or song lyrics.
