Full Description
  • We are a family run business and hold a limited number of weddings beside the lakes each year. You can be as hands on or off as you like - we want to give you the flexibility to put as much of ‘you’ into your special day as you want. No pre packaged weddings here! We don’t have set caterers or marquee companies and we don’t charge corkage so you can save money by catering yourselves and bringing your own drinks. We won’t tell you what décor or colour schemes you have to use, the stunning lakeside location nestled at the foot of the South Downs is enough to inspire you and creates the perfect backdrop to your celebrations. We have a beautiful 14ft rowing boat called Rosie that will be decorated with bunting and pretty cushions, and moored off a wooden jetty beside the marquee site - this is also available for hire at an additional cost -brides can arrive at the ceremony site by boat, with guests being rowed around the lakes during the afternoon and evening. Marquee's can be erected on the Thursday before your wedding with friends and family joining you on the Friday to help decorate the marquee and grounds ready for your celebrations on the Saturday. We are on hand in the lead up to your wedding and especially in those last 48 hours leading up to your special day, we do not want to introod but are here to support you and your family in any way that you need us to. If you would like a little more information regarding the way weddings work at Duncton, please drop us an email and to see some wonderful images of weddings beside the lakes follow us on Instagram weddings_dunctonmill
