Opening of The Mill Barns


It was our pleasure to celebrate the opening of The Mill Barns Wedding Venue with so many amazing couples; all of whom are getting married with us here in 2017!

The Guest Experience

Couples who’d put their faith in our vision and booked The Mill Barns for their 2017 wedding, when it was little more than a building site, attended their Pre-Wedding Experience Event this week.

Experience Events are always amazing but as we were celebrating the opening of The Mill Barns at the same time, the anticipation and excitement at these events was just incredible!

The event gives couples the chance to experience the venue as a guest and to sample some of the sensational dishes served up by our catering partners before they have to make the final decision on their wedding menu.

Divine Inspiration

Your Wedding Breakfast is one of the most important and enjoyable parts of your wedding day.

At The Mill Barns you get to design your own wedding breakfast menu, which is great but it can be really hard to decide what you’d like to serve! You’ll want to choose a menu that reflects your individual style, appeals to your guests and compliments the season you’re getting married in, a cold salad starter just doesn’t cut it on a chilly winter’s day!

We serve up a number of dishes for you to try at your Wedding Experience Event, making it much easier to design your perfect wedding menu.

Liquid Refreshment

You’re very welcome to supply your own daytime drinks at The Mill Barns and we don’t apply a corkage fee. That’s amazing but it’s not always practical for couples who live some distance from the venue.

The Cellar at The Mill Barns offers sublime, discounted drinks for your wedding which can be ordered on a sale or return basis direct from the venue. Better still, you get to sample these stunning Cellar Wines at your pre-wedding event.
