A stunning newly renovated watermill surrounded on both sides by the Avon River with uninterrupted views across the water meadows.
Whether your wedding is small and intimate or a larger affair, the Mill is the perfect venue for you. We offer two different options for couples wanting to use this incredible building for their wedding. Option 1 is just hiring the building and creating your own fantastic day. This for couples who want to design their own wedding and make sure it is completely unique. Option 2 is for those who want a bit more help and guidance and would like the Sopley Mill team to organise your day with you. For anyone wanting to organise their own day we work with some great, well known and trusted suppliers who can make planning your big day a breeze. But that is up to you, you may prefer to do it yourself.
With our wedding packages we help organise the key parts of your wedding, the catering, drinks and music. This helps with budgeting and allows you to concentrate on the finer details. Our wedding co-ordinator will be on hand to help set up and run your day so that you can relax and enjoy yourself.
Mill hire only: Whilst we want to be as flexible as possible there are a few restrictions we have to add to safeguard the building and our licenses. We do ask that you use the fantastic Tom’s Bespoke Bartending Company if you want a Pay-Bar, for any spirits or for serving evening drinks. To ensure we comply with NFDC sound regulations as part of our entertainment license if you would like to have a DJ we would ask you to use We Perform. If you prefer to have a band, you are more than welcome to, however we need them to be a professional band as they understand sound engineering. For the same reasons we do have outside noise restrictions (outlined in the Important Information). We also ask you to select your caterer from our extensive list. Other than that, if it doesn’t damage the building or the grounds, it is pretty much okay. Although we did have to draw a line under having a goat at one wedding breakfast! If you think your idea might be a bit “off the wall’ please run it by us first.
The Mill can hold 100 guests for the ceremony and a sit down wedding breakfast. The Mill can accommodate up to 140 guests for a more informal style wedding or if you want more evening guests.
