Can't imagine getting married anywhere else
We got married at Rufford Mill in August 2013. It was the most beautiful day and I wouldn't swap venues for anything. First and foremost we couldn't have done it wthout Yvonne, the wedding planner there. She was absolutely amazing, a true professional that helped us from our very first meeting right up until the cutting of the cake and the first dance, helping with all sorts of details - big or small. She has such great experience and knows exactly how to calm your nerves and make you feel incredibly special when the big day comes! There are so may beautiful places to have photos throughout the day - we had our group ones down at the Abbey and then some ones of just my husband and I at the front of the Abbey and by the side of the lake - they really were lovely. The weekday package made it affordable (especially in comparison to other Nottinghamshire venues!) and the flexibility of the packages made it so that we could make the day how we wanted it and build around our numbers.I can't recommend this place highly enough - it's such a beautiful location and all the staff really helped to make our day special.Sent on 09/04/2014

Just what we wanted
We took advantage of the £3000 package and we couldn't have been happier. The venue is beautiful, the food was wonderful and we had an amazing day. I honestly can't believe everything went so smoothly. Yvonne and her staff are a credit.Sent on 18/06/2012
Anyone looking for an amazing venue at a reasonable price should consider this place.

Fabulous day from start to finish!
We had our wedding at Rufford Mill this weekend and we couldn't have asked for more. The venue looked so beautiful and the staff were all amazing, nothing was too much trouble. We had a fabulous day from start to finish and everyone complimented the venue, food and staff. Thank you so much xSent on 25/11/2019
