Halloween Wedding 2018

Just returned from THE most fantastic wedding g at Cley Windmill. The accommodation is 5 star and the staff are so helpful and go out of their way to help.
The menu and food was all it promised to be and we can’t recommend the Windmill enough as a wedding venue. Thank you so much to all who made our wedding so special.

Thank you!

Ian and I have just come back from our honeymoon and just wanted to take the time to send you a really big thank you for looking after us all so well during our weekend with you earlier this month.

Everyone at the windmill made us feel so welcome and really made our dream wedding a reality. We can’t express over email just how happy we were with everything, it was just perfect. The windmill is a perfect location but it is really made special by the people. The food was amazing too, just as we like it!

All of our family and friends had nothing but lovely comments about the weekend. Also, the run up to the weekend was fantastic, you made us feel really comfortable about everything and nothing felt like too much trouble. We felt as though we were in safe hands. If you ever wanted any kind of testimonial for any reason we would be more than happy to send anything through to you (or feel free to use anything in this email!).

We were also really pleased with Rita at passion of flowers, who we only used based on your recommendation, so thank you again.

Brian Egan was our photographer and we have just received the link of the images he took that afternoon and they are wonderful. What was also great about Brian was how comfortable he made everyone feel too. We know he is based in Cley and becasue of that he was happy to charge us for only a couple of hours of his time, something many other photographers were not open to. If you have anyone looking for a similar limited coverage, or anything else, he really is a great recommendation.

Thanks again, and hopefully we’ll see you again in the not too distant future.

Tina and I wanted to thank you and all the staff for our recent wedding and stay at Cley Windmill.

From the time of arriving, up until leaving, you and your staff made us feel totally comfortable and welcome. The location to get married was better than we could have ever imagined, the accommodation was fantastic and the food was absolutely out of this world.

Our wedding day was just perfect and there is nothing we would have changed. Please pass on our thanks to the rest of the staff for making our visit a time we will never forget. We will absolutely be returning.

Very Special Venue

I felt that I must write to you to let you know what a superb time we had at our daughter’s wedding last Saturday.

The whole occasion was handled so well by all those from Cley Windmill. We really appreciated all the small touches and the huge flexibility that everyone provided. The way that everyone picked up on the tone and ambiance and used their instincts to ensure success was of the highest quality and contributed in no small measure to a very special day.

Cley Windmill is not just a wonderful building, the people make it a very special venue.

Intimate, friendly and perfect!

We were unbelievably happy with our day yesterday, it was perfect and totally surpassed our expectations.

The Wedding itself was just as we wanted, intimate and friendly, perfect. Refreshments were lovely. Windmill itself FABULOUS. Evening also Fabulous. And thank you so much to Simon the chef for spoiling me on my special day, it was so good of him to humour me and the meal was gorgeous. Your staff are very, very nice.

All in all, aside from the sun not being around, but that was partially my fault, our very special day was one we will always tell tales of and hold fond memories close.
