A day I’ll never forget!
The wedding breakfast went on a little too long and we had guests waiting for food.
Music for the ceremony was a little behind but overall was such a perfect day! We both loved every second!
Mr & Mrs Roberts
Firstly, we would like to say a huge, massive thank you for allowing us to have our Wedding at your venue on 05/08/23. The venue is absolutely stunning and everything is well laid out to accommodate all weathers!
Secondly, we would like to thank the team and all the staff at the venue on our special day. Everyone worked tirelessly to make sure the wedding ran as planned, making sure all guests were accommodated for and checking in to make sure everyone was happy.
Lastly, we want to thank the catering staff for the absolutely outstanding food. From what we could see, all plates were emptied and everyone since has commented on the amazing food, right from the canapés, to the wedding breakfast and the buffet in the evening.
Throughout the entire 18 months of planning the wedding, the team at The Mill House have been incredibly accommodating, responding to emails promptly, answering any questions we had and being very thorough during all our Wedding meetings.
We couldn’t recommend The Mill House highly enough for providing the Wedding of our dreams.
Thank you again for everything.
Mr & Mrs Roberts 😀
The Mill House Swallowfield
The venue is full of character, with very well kept gardens, which provide lots of great photo opportunities.
The marquee provides the perfect space for the wedding breakfast and evening disco.
All the staff are so friendly and helpful, going above and beyond from planning every detail of the great day with you, and on the day they discretely lead you through each part, from the ceremony, the wedding breakfast to the cutting of the cake.
We wish to thank the following members of The Mill House team for making our wedding a very special and memorable day.
Mark, our master of ceremonies
Kim, Kate, Emma and Chris, who helped plan, prepare and lead us through the day.
Stewart our DJ for providing music for all the age groups who attended our wedding.
We booked our wedding in 8 months and they were so helpful gave us a timeline of things. We got to pay over 6 months and it was on a deal for spring
Best Decision Ever
Thank you again to everyone involved, the Mill House will always have a special place in our hearts ❤️
Absolutely beautiful venue and amazing and helpful staff.
They were very quick to respond to calls and emails and always helped in any way they could.
On the day of the wedding, the whole day couldn't have gone any smoother and the food was delicious. The father of the bride had arranged many surprises for the day, which the staff did a great job of keeping a secret and made the transitions smooth with no-one having any clues.
So many guests commented on how beautiful the whole venue was, the bedrooms, the marquee and the garden. We had some stunning photos with all the lights and river in the background.
We couldn't thank all the staff enough for helping make our day the best day ever.
Put your trust in the Mill House!
The team made our guests feel so welcome, and everyone said what an incredible and beautiful venue it was. The rooms are comfortable and inviting, and the food is amazing!! Every meal we have had has been fantastic and we can’t wait to come back for more in the future.
Planning a wedding is stressful, planning a wedding in a pandemic is even harder! But the team at The Mill House made everything easier. They were always on hand to answer questions and offer reassurance (even helping us source a Gazebo to put over the ceremony area in case of rain) and we are so happy we went with them for our wedding. The venue is supported by an incredible group of wedding suppliers who were as equally as amazing as the Mill House themselves!
If you are looking for an intimate, exclusive use, and all around amazing wedding venue, please choose the Mill House!
Incredible from start to finish
We booked at quite short notice and found Mark and Kim to be professional, experienced and helpful throughout the planning. Cost was very reasonably priced and no hidden extras.
On the big day they were supportive and could not have looked after us and our guests any better. Nothing was too much trouble, we felt really looked after.
We felt comfortable and confident throughout the day and our day felt intimate and special. We had the 3 course wedding breakfast and the food was absolutely delicious. Everybody enjoyed the meal.
We spent the night at the hotel as did a few of our family. Rooms and beds were comfortable and clean.
We highly recommend The Mill House Hotel for a wedding, its a beautiful place inside and out and Mark and Kim helped us have exactly the day we wanted.
A wonderful venue for a truly special day
The perfect venue for the perfect day.
Our wedding 14/10/23
We planned on having our wedding outside but as the weather was so hit as miss with days coming up to the wedding, they set up inside just incase. Luckily we could still get married outside in their beautiful garden. We were so happy.
We honestly can’t recommend this venue enough - a beautiful venue with a stunning garden, friendly staff and amazing food. What more could you want ☺️
a fantastic Wedding venue and a great team
We couldn't have asked any more from The Mill House and would thoroughly recommend them to anyone on their special day!
