Amy & Will / Sopley Mill Wedding, Dorset

 

Amy and Will knew from the start just how their wedding day was going to plan out. They had their theme, their quirky style and between the two of them they certainly pulled it off. Sopley Mill was a first for me for Wedding photographer and it certainly didn’t let me down.

The Mill is a beautiful Grade II listed building situated on the banks of the River Avon in the picturesque village of Sopley.

There was originally a Mill on this site in 1086AD and is subsequently mentioned in the Doomsday Book. Through the centuries, repeated rebuilding took place and finally in 1878, this top floor was added to the existing structure. Whilst the Mill was milling this floor was used as the grain store and there are several traps in this floor, which were used to gravity feed the grain to the workings in the floors below. Grain was raised to this level by means of a hoist located in our kitchen facility and which is now electrically operated.

Milling ceased around 1955 and since then the building has been little used until the present time where it is now used for hosting Weddings and Events. (more history about the mill)

I arrived in the morning at the Mill and worked my way up the floors to the bridal suite to find it empty so explored the Mill and found Amy and her bridesmaids on the ground floor putting the finishing touches up. I have photographed weddings at a huge range of venues but this was really sticking out to me to be a venue that you really could recreate a blank canvas and tailor your wedding theme all around the floors of the Mill and surrounding grounds. I was praying for nice weather as I do for all the weddings I have the pleasure to capture but being October and my first chance to work at the Mill I so wanted this to be beautiful day. There was no bad forecast for rain and for this time of year it was still so mild with the seasons in full throws of autumn.

I don’t need to say much more apart from please do enjoy the highlights below of Amy and Will’s wedding day and just to say what a wonderful truly devoted couple they are.
