Stunning Venue & Incredible Service
We got married in Feb 2020 at this incredible venue. From start to finish the service/experience provided was highly satisfactory. All the team were amazing and helped make our special day go without a hitch. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a truly spectacular wedding day. We loved the fact the venue is split over the 4 floors as it allows for your day to run continually and you don't have to wait around for areas to be set up and cleared etc. In addition the added touches and decor included in the venue mean you need add very little to create a gorgeous atmosphere.Sent on 04/05/2020
We were also really lucky to be able to stay within The Mill House which is accommodation next the main venue the night before and after the wedding which really added to our weekend. The accommodation is beautifully presented and extremely well maintained. The breakfast provided in the mornings was a fantastic spread and we were so well looked after by the two ladies who service the accommodation. Being able to have our closest friends and family all together for the weekend really added to our day.
I would highly recommend this venue to anyone considering having their special day at The Westmill.

One of a kind!
We had our wedding at The West Mill on 21/06/21; having had it booked for around 3 years. As soon as we went to look at venue we knew it was the place for us! The industrial chic environment provided the relaxed wedding that we wanted. All of our guests loved the venue; it is so unique compared to any other venue and haivng the different floors for different parts of the wedding day means the flow of the day is never interrupted.
All the staff we had any interactions with were so professional, helpful and lovely to speak to! Our wedding was impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic, and despite how busy they must have been, the venue were always happy to speak to us and answer our millions of questions! We'd like to give particular mentions to Anna, Hayley, Hannah and Andrew for being so supportive in the run up and everything you did for us to make the day go so smoothly!
We couldn't have chosen a more perfect venue and we 100% recommend it to those looking for a unique, one of a kind venue, with a team of staff who will go out of their way to provide you with the wedding day of your dreams.
Thank you again,
The new Dr & Dr Evans!Sent on 12/07/2021

The Fantastic West Mill
The West Mill were great to me and Jermaine, very flexible to our needs. Our day exceeded our expectations and that is mainly down to the West Mill's organisation. The food was incredible I could not fault anything.Sent on 04/10/2018
