Launched this summer, The West Mill is an industrial space that has shot straight to the top of Brides' venue hot list.

IN PICTURES: NORTH VS SOUTH VENUES

Situated on the banks of the river Derwent, it overlooks a beautiful weir with stunning views over the bridge to the rolling countryside of Darley Park (it's actually part of Darley Abbey) and, until last year, had been derelict for sometime. However, after a £2million restoration, owners Andrew and Chrissie have transformed this Grade 1 listed building (it used to be a cotton spinning mill) into a chic, modern setting.

MORE VENUE INSPIRATION

Licensed for ceremonies for up to 170 guests and with ample dancing room, trust us, you can have one serious party here; it's the ultimate exclusive use venue. Inside you'll find barrel-vaulted ceilings, exposed brick walls, cast iron columns and oodles of cool furniture - in fact, it's got a distinct Soho House vibe.
