Woodland Wedding
Venue Service

By Laura and Sam, on 03 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 26 May 2017

We were married on the 26th May 2017 at Milling Barn. We opted for a woodland wedding and prayed for sunshine and thankfully we got it! The woodland is a beautiful setting to have a wedding and the barns are beautiful, everyone keeps asking me where I found such a lovely venue. Ella and the rest of the Milling Barn staff worked hard to set up both the woodland and the indoor ceremony area (in case it rained) and were on hand all day to ensure everything went to plan, The chopping block who provide the catering were great, food was amazing and in the evening we had a wood fired pizza oven which our guests loved. Milling Barn is an up and coming venue and although there was the odd teething problem in the beginning once Ella came on board everything ran smoothly. Ella is very helpful, professional and went above and beyond to ensure we had a perfect day! We are very grateful to all of the team at Milling barn for making our wedding day such a special one. x

Beautiful Vintage Barn Wedding Venue

By Toni & Dan, on 28 May 2017Date of Wedding - 21 May 2017

Dan and I only visited this property and it was everything we wanted! Beautiful vintage oak barn, with tons of space, endless skies and the friendliest staff. This place is amazing if you want somewhere suitable for both Ceremony and Reception it's perfect! And you have the option of a beautiful woodland wedding. The caterers are fantastic - endless options and fantastic quality, the in house staff are every bit as good. Accommodating, friendly and creative! Everything you need. We can't thank them all enough - the day was seamless and we wouldn't change it fot the world. Ps this venue is so easy to decorate!! That helps massively

Wonderful Wedding

By Hannah, on 30 May 2016

We attended our friends wedding recently at Milling Barn. The venue is gorgeous, the weather held out and we managed to use the garden and surrounding grounds for some great photos. The food was faultless and all the staff helpful, professional and cared about every aspect of the day.

Nice venue shame about the staff
Venue Service

By Annonymous, on 10 May 2016

We booked our wedding I guess about 18 months ago and were probably one of the first to get married there in 2016. I cannot say our day didnt go well because it did go well HOWEVER we were really disappointed with the staff on the day. Our "wedding planner", and I say that loosely, was called Sue and she was completely out of her depth. She did not know what to do on the day and kept saying I will find out for you - which ok she did - but it didnt fill us with confidence. There was another lady with her who I think was called Samantha - again lovely lady - but didnt seem to know or care about our wedding or any of the planning which had gone into it. We booked the venue so long ago because we fell in love with it and the area and also the lady who booked us in at the time really understood weddings and always spoke to us passionately like she loved her job and loved doing weddings which was a really big pull that we were not just a number in a venue - however by the time the day came around she had moved to a new role and alas we felt like we were just a number and they couldnt wait for us to get the point where we spent money on the bar. The food was absolutely lovely and the venue is lovely I cannot deny that at all BUT you need to have a long hard look at your staff, their attitudes and their lack of compassion for the job.

Fantastic Venue and all else that goes with it!!!!
Venue Service

By Kavita Hubbard, on 19 Aug 2015

This was the first and ONLY venue that my now husband and I viewed at the beginning of the year, fell in love with it, and decided to go ahead and book. Working with the venue and Donna was extremely easy from the outset, and we got everything we wished for in our wedding day, and more.. The venue is incredible and beautiful even without any additional decorations, the chef's at the Chopping Block are great, and very accomodating of special requests, and all other staff were fantastic. The most amazing and memorable day in my life at Milling Barn.. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By Leanne & Scott Mansfield, on 17 Aug 2015

Such an amazing venue. We got married in the woods which is such a beautiful setting. The whole team at milling barn were amazing, the day ran without a hitch and Donna remembered things even though I had forgotten (thank you). All the staff were extremely attentive and were always accommodating. A truly wonderful day for us and all our guests! X

By laura, on 03 Jun 2015

we had a look around this venue earlier today. Gorgeous place. we live in australia but wanted to get married here in 2017 and just arranged to view last min complete with parents and grandparents in tow - slight coach party of us arrived. their wedding planner was so accommodating. we had seen another local barn and they were really unhelpful and we felt we were putting them out we had a lovely walk around the venue, down to the woodlands which we would like to book i think, it was all so well handled and we had tea and biscuits. if you are thinking of heading here to have a look around definitely do it you wont be disappointed cant wait until 2017

Amazing Venue and Setting
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Ormondroyd, on 13 May 2015

We had what turned out to be the perfect wedding day and evening at Milling Barn in May 2015. The rain held off, the bluebells were out and with the help of a tractor and trailer we had our ceremony in the bluebell woods which was idyllic! The barns and surrounding areas were what we were both looking for - naturally beautiful and spaces you can really make your own. Donna inparticular was brilliant from start to finish with her support, advice, tips and hard work and she really did help to ensure we had the most amazing day! All our guests without fail commented on the venue and the quality of the food and we wouldn't hesitiate to recommend Milling Barn to anyone who wants something special! Thank Milling Barn. Mr and Mrs Ormondroyd

CAN'T WAIT FOR OUR 2015 WEDDING
Venue Service

By XandJ, on 28 Jan 2015

We went to see Milling Barn on a really cold January day during the Christmas holidays. Their wedding planner was the only one out of all the venues we went to see who greeted us with a smile and a hot cup of coffee! We really enjoyed hearing about the venue and what it could do and when we asked if it could do this and that (we have a lot of different ideas for how we want our wedding to be) the wedding planner had so much experience she instantly knew what would work and how little tweaks with our ideas would make them so much better - we went away really excited and booked it the next day. Thank you so much to her for really getting us excited about our special day and making us feel that or plans could be handled with experience. We can't wait!!!!!

Great Wedding
Venue Service

By the new mr and mrs, on 19 Nov 2014

The staff were all so helpful and emails were always answered quickly, efficiently and with all the information we needed (even I have to be honest and say sometimes late into the evening when we assumed we wouldn't get an answer until after the weekend) The food was absolutely gorgeous. We had a three course and a hog roast in the evening and I have to say - absolutely scrummy!!!! Best hog ever. We had access the day before to do our decor which was a massive help and their wedding planner kept us all going with coffee and a happy smile all day even though we stayed a lot later than we had planned due to a mix up our end with the cake she was happy to stay and wait for it to be delivered from S. London (we didn't leave until after 10pm in the end). This is a venue that really puts the personal touch into your wedding whether it be the planning, the catering or the way they look after you on the day making everyone feel welcome and generally being on hand all day. We also had the same point of contact all the way through I have gone into probably a lot more detail than I intended to here but I know this venue was recently taken over (Jan 2013 I believe) and I know some people will wonder if it can handle their day, = trust me - they can and they give you five star treatment all the way, we really felt that we had their full attention for a year not just the day they took our money and the day of the wedding.

milling barn saved our day!
Venue Service

By Kay, on 03 Oct 2014

I just want to write a quick note. We had previously booked Hanbury Manor for our wedding in 2015 a year ago thinking we would be organised. When we went back to see it in July 2014 (a year to the date when we would be getting married in 2015) we were horrified at how bad it was. We went to see the wedding planner at Milling Barn nearly in tears but they picked up the pieces for us and we have booked with Milling Barn instead. We are both overjoyed with this venue and all the help they have given us. They didnt mind us coming back more than once with family (and kids in tow) and accommodated a couple of really late night viewings which other venues wouldnt do - strictly 9-6 (booooooo!!!!!) We now can't wait to get married there in 2015 Thank you all at Milling Barn - you literally saved our day

OUR WEDDING DAY
Venue Service

By Mrs H, on 03 Oct 2014

We got married at Milling Barn in September. We didn't book until quite late (6 months before) and were worried we would get everything organised in time. We really need not have worried. They made the whole process SO much fun and enjoyable and we had a great time planning everything with their wedding planner. The caterers (Chopping Block) were superb also and couldn't do enough to accommodate us - even buying more highchairs to accommodate all our children. The venue was highly organised and our emails (which were by the hundreds) were always answered with speed, always answered our questions and were upbeat even when we were worrying about whether we should book this or that in terms of outside suppliers. Their help was invaluable. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this venue to other couples, although we would like to keep it as our own little memory we hope that we get to go back many times. DEFINITELY book here if you want a barn wedding (PS: there are other barns in the area and to be honest, their staff were too harsh for us) - at Milling Barn they were so wonderful.
