Bellows Mill is an idyllic old watermill nestling beneath the Chiltern Hills with the lake providing a picturesque setting for weddings. With exclusive use of the premises for the weekend, it is the perfect venue for those wanting a formal or informal country wedding.
For more information and to arrange a viewing, please call Rachael on 01525 220548 or email email@example.com
We believe every wedding held at Bellows Mill should be as individual and unique as the couples choosing our venue for their celebration.
The choice of where to hold your wedding is a really important decision, so we encourage you to come to the venue to look around, ask questions and share your ideas. You will be free to stroll around the grounds and soak up the Bellows Mill atmosphere.
Once you have decided that Bellows Mill is for you, the date of your choice can be held for seven days. Following this a £500 deposit* will secure the date (*please note this deposit payment is non-refundable and we do advise you take out wedding insurance). We will require 50% of the balance four months before the date. The final balance is due four weeks before the wedding.
In the early planning stages, Elaine (your wedding coordinator) will meet with couples to understand their desired ‘vision’ and discuss the ‘art of the possible’. She will keep in regular contact offering helpful tips and ideas and endeavour to make sure it’s your day, your way. That way, Bellows Mill barn, courtyard and lakeside can be transformed with your personal touches. You are free to choose your own suppliers and if required, Elaine will suggest a range of local suppliers who know our venue.
Our weekend package includes two nights in the Kingfisher Suite and there is a range of self-catering accommodation available for guests. As your big day will pass quickly, if you do wish to extend your celebrations and spend more time with family and friends at Bellows Mill, then do let us know as soon as you can so we can reserve rooms for you.
