The Night Porters
Our dependable Night Porters are highly trusted members of the team who keep the venue safe and secure throughout the night. They are on hand to help guests staying overnight in the on-site accommodation no matter the time.
All the important prep begins in the early hours. Our wonderful night porters also work through the night to help clean guest facilities and clear the venue of the day’s setup. They carefully pack away any remaining decoration into overnight storage ready for the happy couple to take home the next morning. This leaves the venue nice and tidy for the Housekeeping Team’s arrival while helping to ensure a smooth and easy check out process the next day.
Our fabulous Housekeepers are proud perfectionists and are responsible for keeping our venue looking wonderful. They arrive at the crack of dawn equipped with all the cleaning supplies you could possibly think of to upkeep our venue to the highest standards. They storm the venue as a team to cover all 3 barns, the Wedding Night Suite, as well as all 22 rooms in our onsite guest accommodation, all in one morning! There’s not a speck of dust to be found once they’ve worked their magic.
Housekeeping’s duties don’t end with cleaning. They also work closely with the Event Managers in setting up for your wedding. They assist with table setups, decorations, and any other little jobs that the Event Manager may need help with. They are highly valued team members whose roles are integral to a smooth setup on the morning of your wedding.
Our fabulous Breakfast Team work closely alongside Housekeeping, as well as preparing a wonderful complimentary breakfast in The Granary for all guests staying on site. They are a huge support to all the teams on the morning setup.
Our Breakfast Team often build strong relationships with couples as they are the first to greet you on arrival, and the last to wave you off. Their friendly and welcoming demeanour will be sure to put you at ease when you first step foot through our doors. They also love nothing more than to join you the morning after your wedding to reminisce over your special day over some well needed grub. They ensure you not only leave with a full appetite, but also a full heart and a head fresh with treasured memories.
The Mill Barns offers a glorious waterfront setting surrounded by eight acres of beautiful established gardens. However, to keep these surroundings looking as wonderful as they do, it takes a lot of hard work.
The gardeners are always mowing, trimming, and pruning away throughout all the seasons to keep things looking pristine. They have an exceptional eye for detail and are always looking into ways to improve the grounds to make them more and more beautiful each year.
You’ll have the opportunity to capture some beautiful shots in the gardens on your wedding day. There are a whole host of stunning natural backdrops all courtesy of our Gardeners’ time and care.
No matter how many different departments there are here at The Mill Barns, we run like a family unit. Every team member works with the same ethos at their core, to deliver the Best Day Ever to every single couple we welcome through our doors.
