Money Saving Tips for your ultimate Barn Wedding


If you’re dreaming of a rustic barn wedding full of light and laughter but are anxious about the cost, you needn’t be; here’s some top tips for maximising the impact of your uber-cool, relaxed wedding at The Mill Barns while minimising the outlay!



Consider a Mid-Week Wedding

The Mill Barns is a brand new development designed with your perfect barn wedding in mind. The three oak-framed, interconnecting barns enjoy an idyllic waterfront position within eight acres of luscious landscaped gardens. It’s stunning and it’s just as beautiful on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday as it is on a Saturday.

You’ll get exactly the same amazing wedding venue and high level of service whichever day of the week you book; nothing changes other than the wedding venue hire price, which is considerably less for a mid-week wedding.




Supply your own Drinks

The Mill Barns is a no corkage barn wedding venue. You can supply all your own daytime drinks and we won’t charge you any corkage fees. That’s a fortune saved right there!

Not only are we keen to save you money but we want you to have a stress free wedding with us too, that’s why we offer you the option to take advantage of our connections and source incredible, discounted-drinks through The Mill Barns’ own Cellar. You’ll save money and save yourself the hassle of dropping all the drinks off at the venue the day before the wedding.




Go Minimal

The Mill Barns Wedding Venue oozes character and style; warm sunlight pours into the venue and the exposed oak frame offers a visual feast; think natural timbers, majestically high beamed ceilings; warm tones and flattering lighting. With all that on offer, you can be sparing with your decorations without the venue ever looking underdressed.

Opting for flowers that are in season is the most cost effective way to maximise the impact of your floral arrangements and don’t forget, any decorations you provide for the ceremony barn can be moved over to the wedding breakfast barn during the drinks reception, so you get double the use out of them!




Stun Guests without Blowing Your Budget

Your wedding guests will really look forward to the wedding breakfast. Quite often they’ve had an early start and a few drinks by the time they take their seats for this celebratory meal and they’ll be ready for it.

Our exclusive catering partners will work with you to create an inventive and exciting menu of sensational dishes your guests will rave about for months after your wedding.

Why not stun your guests by adding an unexpected course, perhaps an incredible Amuse Bouche to awaken their taste buds as guests take their seats, or a stunning sorbet course between the starter and the main course. You’ll be amazed at what little impact these extra courses have on your catering price per head, in sharp contrast to the impact they have on your guests’ enjoyment of your barn wedding.
