Full Description
This beautiful building still has the stunning original features of the watermill with its oak beams and incredible views over the Avon water meadows. The gardens and lawn are flanked on both sides by the Avon Millstream, securely fenced in case you have any children at your wedding. The wild location is picturesque and completely private without another house in view – although just 8 minutes from Bournemouth. There are 3 main floors to the building, all of which are accessible by lift. The top floor has seating space for up to 100 people at your wedding breakfast as well as a fully fitted kitchen space for your caterers. Your ceremony takes place on the second floor, with enough seating space for 100 guests. This same room has a dance floor and stage for your evening reception to take place later in the day. The ground floor is the perfect area for your guests to mingle both before and after your ceremony; with a bar on this level your guests can enjoy drinks whilst mingling both inside and out. The Mill also has a beautiful, light and spacious bridal suite for your use on the day. In the summer months the outside terrace area is the ideal reception spot, with outdoor furniture your guests can enjoy drinks sat outside amongst the beautiful Sopley grounds. In the case of rain there is plenty of room on the ground floor for 100 people to mingle inside and in the winter months the two log fires create a perfect warm and cosy atmosphere. We rent The Mill out on an exclusive use basis, so you can decide what you want to have and where you want to have it – essentially, we provide the venue but for all the other parts of the wedding that is up to you. We don’t have ‘packages’ as such as each wedding is unique. We work with some incredible suppliers; caterers, florists and photographers etc whose details we will send to you but our aim is to provide a stunning venue, set in an idyllic location which is as flexible as possible.
