We had a perfect day X
Venue Service

By Sarah and Peter Hume, on 13 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 07 Jul 2017

The day was just perfect! I was anxious about walking down the aisle, the staff there were supportive, caring and attentive at this time and throughout the day. All of the guests commented on how tasty the food was and that includes the vegans! We had enough freedom to make the day our own and with enough guidance to leave lots to the wedding planners so we could relax. Perfect service and beautiful grounds. I can't sing this venues praises enough! Thank you Rufford Abbey Mill x

Our Special Day

Wow wow wow! What a venue, what a setting, what an awesome team there is at the Rufford. We had our wedding on a Wednesday and it blew us away. Nothing is too much trouble for the team, everything went to plan and I couldn't reccommend the venue enough - Epic! Thank You x

We cannot thank Yvonne and the team at Rufford enough. We planned our wedding from our home in Australia and despite this, the currency and the time difference Yvonne ensured it was planned perfectly. We had a fabulous time and the day was even better than we imagined. The venue is beautiful, the staff were amazing, the food was perfect and the prices are very competitive. We were so happy with everything and would recommend Rufford to anyone looking to have a carefree, easy and beautiful wedding experience. Thank you again for a day we will never forget x

The perfect wedding reception and evening party!
Venue Service

By Jack and Megan Bloomfield, on 22 May 2017Date of Wedding - 20 May 2017

When Megan and Jack chose the Rufford Mill over 18 months ago, there were a few key factors that were very important to them: - They wanted a location that felt special and had lots of character for lovely photos - They wanted a style and quality of food that suited their families tastes - And they wanted the whole thing to be managed by a hostess that they felt confident would be able to deliver exactly what they imagined Rufford Mill didn't disappoint at all on any of these elements, and in particular the way that Yvonne managed the twists and turns of the day - which actually had many challenges - made the whole day flow smoothly and effortlessly, and truly gave Megan and Jack a magical day to remember. As we got to the evening party Lorraine led the team to continue the celebrations with exactly the same quality of delivery and practical support that we had come to expect during the day, and ensured that our day ended in the same way that it had begun. All of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the day, the venue, the organisation of the day, the quality of the food, and generally how comfortable they were made to feel. From start to finish Yvonne has been professional, very flexible, practical, and focussed on delivering a special day and experience, and sets a high standard that Lorraine and her team helped to maintain that throughout the whole day - we can't thank them enough.

The Perfect Place to Say 'I Do'
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Orellana, on 11 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 26 Mar 2017

We got married here on Sunday 26th March (Mothers Day) and have to say from start to finish everything was perfect. Yvonne, Michelle and the rest of the staff are all amazing, going above and beyond to make our day as special as it was. The whole day was so relaxed and everything was taken care of so we could just enjoy the day. The food was fantastic and lots of it, and all our guests said they have never been to a more beautiful wedding venue. I cannot thank all the staff and recommend Rufford Mill highly enough, It really was everything we hoped and dreamed for! Thank you!!

Superb Wedding Venue! The staff are AMAZING!!
Venue Service

By Sarah and Richard Walters, on 24 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 14 Oct 2016

We got married here Oct 14th 2016. We had only given ourselves 6 weeks to get organised and I have to say from the moment of booking until the end of our Wedding Yvonne, Michelle and the staff were AMAZING!!! Nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to ensure our wedding day was perfect! Communication with Yvonne beforehand was excellent and when I had a "hiccup" on the day with my dress (which was nothing to do with Yvonne) Yvonne and the team immediately came to my rescue and went that extra mile to ensure my day was not spoiled! The venue itself is charming and well laid out and we were also allowed to use the beautiful Abbey grounds for our wedding photographs which is an excellent bonus! I cannot recommend Rufford Mill and the staff highly enough!!

Highly Recommended
Venue Service

By ANGELA BENTLEY, on 05 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 08 Oct 2016

Rufford Abbey Country Park was our first choice of venue after we attended my son's wedding there last year. We found the staff were attentive friendly courteous and efficient and went out of their way to make our day as wonderful as possible. The rooms are every thing we could have wished for in a venue and the surroundings are delightful. We supplied our guests with duck food and we had a wonderful time feeding the wildlife on the lake. Our photos are amazing with stunning grounds as a backdrop. Our wedding was magical as was my son's all made extra special by the marvellous staff. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone wishing to get married.
