Alitia and Paul Anthony got married on 8 June 2019 and had this to say,
We had an outstanding experience at Bellows Mill in general!  Elaine and her team went above and beyond to make sure our day was exactly as we imagined- nothing was too much trouble.
The venue is beautiful and the reason I chose it was because you can make your wedding day into anything that you want it to be – no restrictions or pricey packages etc. All staff were very helpful and friendly, and organised everything behind the scenes all day with no hassle at all. The heritage bar was a great touch and all our guests loved it. If you are thinking of holding an event at Bellows Mill then I urge you to do it – loved every minute!”
