Best wedding venue you could ask for!

Right from seeing the venue to having meetings to arrange what we needed to do and what setup we wanted for our big day, all the staff at Hornsbury Mill have been superb. They listened to what we wanted and catered for all our needs. The actual venue is beautiful and having everything from getting ready, the ceremony, photos and the wedding breakfast made our day so much simpler and easier. We cannot thank the staff enough for making our wedding day absolutely perfect.

Absolutely fantastic wedding venue

Jane and her team at Hornsbury Mill are fantastic, friendly, flexible and very accommodating!
We got married there on the 22nd of August 2022 and could not have wished for or had a better venue. They listen to all your requests and try to ensure all of them are taken care of.
Jane ensures the day runs smoothly and checks in on you in the bridal suite several times to see of all is okay and if you need anything. She is there when the groom arrives and will even put his button hole on if it’s needed ( and the best man’s).
The whole place is set up for an indoor or outdoor ceremony and this can be altered right up until an hour before which is a fantastic option.
Having family stay overnight and all meet for breakfast finishes the wedding experience perfectly.
I would recommend having your wedding, numbers permitting, at Hornsbury Mill to anyone that would like things to be perfect.
Thank you Jane and her team once again

The most perfect day ever ❤️

Well what can we say, except Thank you! The wonderful Jane and Sophie mad our day perfect! From our first meeting Sophie kept up updated with everything and even give us hints and ideas of things that we had missed or had no clue about!
I think Jane was more excited then us for our big day! But that made it even more special! They put so much thought and love into our day and made everything so easy!
You know that wedding day stress you get with planning? Not with these two! Our planning was smooth (even though we had no idea and we were asking ridiculous questions most of the time!)
They interacted with all of our guests and Jane even got the shyest person onto the dance floor! I’m pretty sure she had a dance with a few of our guests too!
Honestly, we couldn’t of had a better day! They made our wedding perfect and the most magical moment of our lives. We could t thank them enough. The team and Hornsbury Mill will forever have a magical and special place in our hearts.
Please look no further for the most perfect venue. Also, the peacocks made the day even better! They chirped up when we had our first kiss!

Chris and I had the most fabulous wedding day at Hornsbury Mill.

It is such a pretty venue and we fell in love with the Corn Loft as soon as we saw it. The grounds are lovely and we had some super photographs taken outside in the Autumn sunshine.

The food was delicious and beautifully presented.

Jane and Lyndsay were brilliant and guided me seemingly, effortlessly through the day.

All in all, Hornsbury Mill was a perfect venue for our wedding day and we wouldn’t have changed a thing

. All the staff were fantastic! Thank you xxx

We had our wedding at Hornsbury on 4/8/17. From start to finish it was superb. We loved Jane the first time we met her and were welcomed like we were part of the family every time we visited. The whole planning process was make easy and nothing was too much trouble. The grounds are stunning and George (peacock) was a hit with our guests. Or friends and family could not be more complimentary of Hornsbury. All the staff were fantastic! Thank you xxx
