A beautiful setting, extremely laid back
Venue Service

By Melissa & Ryan, on 14 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 27 Aug 2016

Massive thank you to Clare, her husband, Maria and all the staff at Milwards Estate. We chose Milwards as our wedding venue as it was a beautiful setting, extremely laid back and just what we had in mind for our special day. All staff at Milwards were very attentive and on hand to help wherever required. Very thankful to Clare's husband for finding me a safety pin when needed and clare for trying to fix my shoes that unfortunately we're giving me some problems. I would definitely recommend Milwards Estate to anyone. We really did have an amazing day and you were a massive part in creating that. Hope to stay in touch.

Stunning hardly does it justice
Venue Service

By Andy and Sian, on 14 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 16 Jul 2016

We had our wedding at Milwards on 16th July, and we honestly cannot thank Claire and her lovely team enough for ensuring we had the most amazing, perfect wedding day possible. Even when we had a minor hiccup on the day with one of the suppliers, Claire and the team were calm and prepared to do whatever was needed to keep the day running smoothly. As for the venue itself, stunning hardly does it justice. Our guests absolutely loved the beautiful ceremony room, marquee and huge grounds; and loved exploring by the lake and trees. We really couldn't have asked for better. Thank you so much for everything!

The most amazing venue. Absolutely stunning.

The most amazing venue. Absolutely stunning. But it was the staff that made the day. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Everything thought of down to the very last detail. If you're thinking of booking this place don't think twice. Book it. You won't regret it for a minute.

It was just incredible
Venue Service

By Jamie & Leonie, on 14 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 09 Jul 2016

We got married here on Saturday (9th July) and had the most perfect day The venue is stunning with space for people to roam the grounds and take amazing photos. The marquee is a fantastic size and is a complete blank canvas to make your day your own. The ceremony room is small and intimate so everyone feels closely involved in the special day. And finally the! They went above and beyond to make the day run smoothly for everyone. Everything ran seamlessly and every hiccup sorted without any stress. Honestly, have your wedding here- it was just incredible.
