This beautiful 18th century watermill, surrounded on both sides by the Millstream of the river Avon closed as a restaurant in 2011. The owners of the Mill, which has been in the same family for over 150 years, have taken this wonderful building back in hand from the tenants and we have just opened it as a stunning wedding venue with incredible views over the Avon water-meadows.
We want Sopley Mill to be a blank canvas for you to create your own perfect wedding. We will provide the stunning views, beautiful historic building and the privacy that is hard to find in other local wedding venues. You can use the caterers you want, the photographers who’s style you like, the florist who you know, the wedding planner you trust, the decorations you have longed for – it is completely up to you. And, just as important to keep the costs down, we allow you to bring in your own drink without a corkage charge. So you can have a glass of champagne without having to pay the earth for it.
Of course if you want some help we can give you a few suggestions for caterers, photographers, florists, etc. We can also organise pay bars if you would prefer. The Mill has a top floor which is ideal for your wedding breakfast and can fit 100 people seated. The 2nd floor will be licensed for weddings (and can fit 100 people) and then turns into a dance floor for the evening. The ground floor and bar is the perfect place for drinks when your guests arrive and for those who want to chill out in the evening.
In the summer months your guests can enjoy the garden with stunning views across the unspoilt Watermeadows. And for more relaxed weddings you may prefer to have a BBQ style wedding breakfast outside.
With its log fires and cosy atmosphere the Sopley Mill is just as perfect for winter weddings.
Our new website is coming soon with lots of pictures of the Mill.
