So, you’re engaged – congratulations!
Now it’s time to take your first steps on the magical journey to your big day. Planning your wedding will be one of the most exciting and romantic experiences of your life. So, it’s important to enjoy the process, let your imagination run free and ensure you make the right choices for your style, budget and preferences.
There are a number of big decisions that need to be made early on, as these will help to shape the rest of your plans. Once you’ve chosen your perfect partner for life, the next task on your list should be finding the perfect partner for your wedding day – your venue.
Not only will your wedding venue act as the visual setting for the celebration, it will also influence the tone for the entire day. Are you looking for a sophisticated, elegant venue that can host a large wedding, or are you hoping for a more intimate affair?
One of the reasons that Coltsford Mill is Surrey’s premier wedding venue is because it offers the versatility to suit any style of wedding. Our stunning Watermill Barn, with its soaring ceiling and natural light, looks incredible no matter how you choose to dress it. From vintage Hollywood glamour to a rustic chic aesthetic, our amazing barn wedding venue will play its role to perfection.
Alternatively, you can hold smaller wedding ceremonies in the charming Mill Room, followed by your wedding breakfast and evening reception in the Watermill Barn.
Once you’ve settled on the wedding venue of your dreams, you’ll need to consider the time of year that you’d like to marry. Do you envisage a spring or summer wedding, with guests mingling outdoors in the sunshine? Or do you yearn for a cosy autumn or winter wedding, with atmospheric lights twinkling as darkness gathers outside?
Set in 12 acres of grounds, deep in the gorgeous Surrey countryside, Coltsford Mill offers the best of everything, all year round. Our beautiful gardens and numerous water features present many opportunities to capture the most amazing wedding photography, whether against a backdrop of vibrant spring blooms or a romantic dusting of frost.
Next on the list will be choosing your guest list and deciding how to feed and entertain them. At Coltsford Mill the world is, quite literally, your oyster. We don’t believe in ‘one size fits all’ weddings, which is why we offer our couples the chance to choose bespoke food and drink options for their individual needs.
Don’t forget about the logistics of your wedding day! How will your guests arrive at the venue? Where will you and your new spouse stay on the wedding night?
Coltsford Mill is so tranquil, you’ll probably be surprised to learn that it’s situated just 15 miles from London – that’s only about half an hour via train. What’s more, our standard package includes wedding night accommodation for the happy couple in the lovely Mill Cottage.
While the Covid-19 pandemic continues, it will be necessary to observe any safety precautions that the government requires at the time. So, you will, of course, want to choose a venue that is guaranteed to adhere to Covid-19 Secure guidelines. Rest assured that for the team at Coltsford Mill, the safety of you and your guests is paramount at all times. We will continue to monitor and advise you about coronavirus regulations as the situation unfolds.
