Perfect Day...."

Many couples who get married or have hosted celebratory events at Mill Hall write to tell us how much they have enjoyed their day.  You can read some of them below... 

"Thank you to all the team at Mill Hall who made our wedding day so special.  We could not have wished for a better day.  Faye and Emma were extremely friendly and helpful during the planning stages and no request was too much.  We were able to tailor our wedding day to suit us and create a really personal day.  Also to Fran and the team for ensuring everything went to plan on the day.  All of our guests commented on how friendly and accommodating all of the staff were. 

Thank you to Paul and the team for the food which was delicious and definitely plenty of  it.  Finally thank you to Debbie who even gave us a lift home when we couldn't get a taxi at the end of the night! 

We had the most perfect wedding day at the beautiful Mill Hall and would recommend it 200%."

(Nicola and Steve Darwin, wedding May 2017)

"We got married at Mill Hall last year.  My husband and I fell in love with Mill Hall from the first visit.  The look of the building inside and out and the grounds were stunning too. We had the perfect day and that was due to ALL the members of staff who looked after us and all of our guests so well.  Tasha who was with me in the morning was excellent and she did so well at keeping me calm.  The food was lovely and Paul was so good and made sure we were catered for - nothing was too much for him.

Most of our gusts hadn't heard of Mill Hall and they all said how beautiful the place was and what a wonderful time they had.  If anyone is looking for a gorgeous wedding venue with wonderful, friendly and stunning grounds then you need to look at Mill Hall."

(Liam and Catriona, wedding October 2016.)

"We just wanted to say thank you to all of the staff at Mill Hall for helping to make our wedding day so special.  We and our guests were made to feel so welcome and found the staff really helpful.  This welcome was the same that we were greeted with from our very first visit.  Please particularly thank Paul and all the catering staff for the wonderful food (everyone appreciated the care that had been taken - and the Yorkshire puddings and chocolate desserts were particularly well received) and the Duty Managers for helping everything to run without any issues.  We would also like to send you our thanks for all your help and expertise in the run-up to our big day.  Lots of our guests said how wonderful Mill Hall was as a venue and how great it was that the profits were going to such a deserving cause as Mary Hare.  We would recommend Mill Hall to anyone seeking a special venue for their wedding."

(Gemma and David, wedding March 2017.)

"We got married in August 2016 at Mill Hall and we could not imagine a better wedding day. The venue itself is absolutely stunning, inside and out. The Great Hall, where we had the ceremony and wedding breakfast, was absolutely beautiful with its grand features and wood panelled walls. We were lucky enough to have lovely weather so we went outside for the drinks reception and our guests loved the grounds - there was so much space for people to mingle and for the children to play. Throughout our wedding planning, and on the day, the service provided by the staff was absolutely excellent. They really went above and beyond to make our day special. The food was delicious and many of our guests commented on this. Having exclusive use of the venue really made it special, and we were able to set some things up the day before which was really useful. The icing on the cake is that the profits go to the Mary Hare Charity. Would highly recommend!"

(Clare and Andrew, wedding August 2016.)

"Mill Hill was the first and only venue we viewed as we did not need to see any others! Faye was wonderful all the way through and we had a fantastic day and would not have changed a thing. The food was exceptional; canapés, 2 course wedding breakfast and evening buffet were our choices. All our guests commented on the how grand the venue was and the food was extremely good and plenty of it. The setting was idyllic and excellent for photographs. Thank you Mill Hall."

(Charlotte and Andy, wedding July 2016.)

"After being let down by another venue we were back to the search of finding a new venue for our wedding day. We then came across Mill Hall and were instantly pleased and relieved we had lost our previous venue. Mill Hall suited us and our interests down to the ground. For a couple who love visiting National Trust Properties Mill Hall then made the obvious choice for our wedding day, with its character and charm and uniqueness. We had already decided on a church wedding so we only needed Mill Hall for our reception, which was no problem. From our first meeting with Faye the wedding co-ordinator to the day itself her support , guidance and help couldn’t have been more appreciated. We don’t live in Newbury itself anymore so planning a wedding an hour away from where we live was already a tricky task. Faye made this no issue and was always happy to email and answer the many questions we had along the way, nothing was too much trouble for her. When it came to the catering of the wedding Paul and his team were amazing. The food tasting is a must and reviews and Faye recommended not to eat before, don’t! Paul makes so many options and food for the tasting, lunch was even sorted for the next day. I myself have a food intolerance and we had many guests with food allergies and intolerances. This too was no problem or issue for Paul and he made me feel very special and not a nuisance. My auntie who has not eaten certain foods for well over a year has now widened her food choices as a result of the wedding breakfast meal. Everyone on the day was very complimentary of the food as well as very full! Faye and the team were happy for us to come into the venue the day before and help to decorate as we wanted. I can’t recommend Mill Hall and their team enough to anyone, our wedding day was truly the best day it could have been and a very special and memorable day one we won’t be forgetting in a long time. If I could put my dress on and do it all again tomorrow I would. There is also the added bonus that all the proceeds go back to the charity and the children, something which working with children myself means a great deal to me."

(Elizabeth and Simon, wedding May 2016.)

"We held our wedding at this beautiful venue on the 30th of April and had the most awesome day. Our wedding duty manager Ellie was amazing and managed the day to perfection. The food was quote "the best wedding food they had ever had" as stated by many of our guests and I couldn't agree more. All in all the best value for money we could have got and would recommend to anybody."

(Clare and Gary Black, wedding April 2016.)

"We are finally getting back to some form of normality after a wonderful day.  Everything went very smoothly and our guests have all said how wonderfully relaxed it was. Thank you so much for all your help and advice and we cannot thank enough all those who were involved in making our day so special. Our guests made particular comment on how excellent the food was - the whole wedding breakfast was superb. You have a great team!"

(Debs and Pete, wedding March 2016.)

"We knew from the first time we visited Mill Hall that it ticked all of our boxes, and Faye and the team were absolutely incredible. Whether we were dealing with Paul about the food, Fran who was our duty manager on the day, or the staff we met, we always felt as though our wedding was as important to Mill Hall as it was to us. If you are considering Mill Hall as an option, then I would wholeheartedly recommend them to you."

(Jennifer and James, wedding 5th December 2015.)

“I just wanted to message you to let you know how thankful we are to you and the rest of the team at Mill Hall for helping to make our wedding the wonderful occasion that it was.  The day really was everything we had hoped it would be.  All the guests thought it was a beautiful occasion and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. From our very first meeting, you made planning our wedding as easy as it could possibly be.  Your understanding and patience as we made decisions and then changed them was very much appreciated.  The flexibility of the team to cater to our requirements, especially tailoring our menu so specifically, ensured the day ran smoothly and was exactly how we imagined it.  The team was so friendly and polite and couldn’t have been more professional. To say we won’t forget the day is an understatement and we certainly won’t forget the role that you and all the staff played in making it so amazing.”

(Paul and Stefan, October 2015).

“On behalf of Alison and I, we would like to say thank you to you and your team for making our day so special. Everything went perfectly and everyone said that the venue was beautiful.”

(Alison and Rob, September 2015).

“We had our wedding reception at Mill Hall on the 29th August this year. We both loved the building and with the vast space and amazing grounds knew we could really make it into something special for our big day. All the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating to all our requests and provided a fab service from the initial booking through to after the wedding. We have had various compliments from friends and family members on how lovely the food was, it was truly scrumptious. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Mill Hall who made our amazing day possible and would recommend to anyone interested in booking a wedding at Mill Hall.”

(Laura and Luke, August 2015).

"From the moment we stepped foot inside Mill Hall we knew it was perfect for us. The day itself was undoubtedly the best day of our lives. So many of the guests commented on how delicious and well-presented the food was and what a super venue Mill Hall is. It is most definitely a hidden gem. We cannot recommend Mill Hall highly enough."

(Rachel and Ben, wedding June 2015.)

“Thank you to you (Faye) and all of the team. We had a great day!!! The venue looked amazing and the staff couldn't do enough for us. Thank you again and please pass on our gratitude to Fran and her team.”

(Niki and Brent Wise, wedding May 2015).

"I must apologise for the delay in sending you (Faye) my thanks for all your hard work in the arrangements for Suzanne and Nathan's wedding on 9 May 2015. As well as our thanks to you for all the pre-wedding arrangements, I must ask you to pass our very grateful thanks to Fran, Paul and Martin and all the staff supporting them.  Everything went like clockwork on the day and the food for the reception drinks, the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet was out of this world. So many of the guests commented on the arrangements and food as well as what a terrific venue Mill Hall is. If you get a chance could you ask Paul to send me the recipe for his salmon dish. It is really terrific and I am not a lover of fish!!"

(Father of Suzanne, wedding Suzanne and Nathan, May 2015).

“We would like to thank you all at Mill Hall for your hard work and enthusiasm both prior to and especially on Nicola and Scott`s wedding day. We all had a fantastic day and everything went to plan. It is normally a case whereby you can single out a particular person and on this occasion it is very hard as everyone at Mill Hall worked extremely hard in making the day go so well but a special mention has to go to Ellie who was at the front of the team casting her eye on proceedings. There were also some really nice comments coming from the guests on the superb quality and presentation of the food. Whilst Paul (chef) was not there, we are sure he was behind it all especially after meeting with him and sampling the food during our tasting evening a few weeks prior!”

(Roy and Sue Cansdale, for Nicola and Scott’s wedding, April 2015).

"I am sorry not to have expressed before our heartfelt thanks to you (Faye) and your colleagues for all your help and support in making our Ruby Wedding party such a success. We thoroughly enjoyed it, and have been deluged with messages confirming that our guests shared our pleasure. Not least in this were the splendid surroundings, and the excellent food, drink and service."

(Jane and Richard Havelock, ruby wedding party, April 2015).

"Just a little note to say a huge thank you to you (Faye) and all the staff at Mill Hall who worked so hard to make our day so perfect. We are so pleased that we found Mill Hall as I can't imagine anywhere better to have celebrated our wedding. We had a really wonderful day, exactly what we hoped for, but it all went so quickly!"

(Eleanor and Jon Hoare, wedding March 2015).

“I’m only just starting to come down now after an amazing weekend! The food was delicious and plentiful and many people commented on it. Your venue is excellent – we couldn’t have found anywhere better. I was thoroughly spoiled by everyone who came and it will be a night to cherish forever. I hope to have the pleasure of coming to Mill Hall again one day as I think it is a beautiful building. Thanks for everything you did to ensure the event went without a hitch. Please pass my thanks to Paul, Fran and the team who attended on the day.”

(Jasmine Flatters MBE, celebration March 2015). 

"We'd like to say a massive thank you to you (Faye) and the rest of the guys for making the whole job of getting married so easy and worry free! The organisation that went on behind the scenes was utterly brilliant! Everything went like clockwork and you even made sure that the sun came out at 2pm ready for the photos! :) Huge thanks to Fran for calmly running everything so well on the day.  Huge thanks to Paul for producing such wonderful food and for making the cheese look brilliant.  Everybody has commented on how great the canapes, the wedding breakfast and the evening food were. (You really should open a restaurant you know!).

(Kirsty and Len Pearce, wedding October 2014).

"Where to start! We were so lucky to find Mill Hall; after a lot of internet searching we happened to stumble across it and what a find. It was everything we had hoped for and Faye (the wedding co-ordinator) could not have been more helpful. We were able to visit as many times as we needed to and being able to adapt and rearrange things made the venue even more perfect to our wedding. Paul, the chef, created us a meal that was delicious and this was a unanimous thought from all the guests. He made a huge effort in creating special meals for myself (bride!) as there were several things that I was unable to eat. Fran and the staff were fantastic on the day and everything ran perfectly from start to finish and any requests were dealt with straight away. Mill Hall is such a stunning venue and with the profits going back into the Mary Hare foundation it was, in our minds, the only place for our wedding to be held"

(Michelle and Matt Chapman, wedding May 2014).

"We would like to say a big thank you to you all for making our wedding day so perfect! We both had an amazing day and so many of our guests commented on how much they’d enjoyed the reception. Thank you to all of you for all your hard work in making it all possible and making it run so smoothly."

(Amy and Anthony Bushell, wedding April 2014). 

"The venue is beautiful, I mean really stunning, the staff were helpful and professional yet unobtrusive and the food was, and this is my guests opinion unanimously, delicious. Also we had as much help as we wanted beforehand and as many visits as we needed with Faye as the venue co-ordinator who, having been there for quite a few years, really knows her stuff. If we did it again we wouldn't change a thing about our venue because it couldn't get any better."

(Kelly and Bruce McFarlane, wedding March 2014).

"We just wanted to say thank you for making our wedding day so special. We really couldn’t have asked for any more from everyone involved. Prior to the day itself, the organisation was faultless. We immediately felt at ease with you (Faye) and knew that you were planning everything to our specific asks, even down to the table with canapés and champagne down near the lake! As the day got closer it was a reassuring feeling to know that you were coordinating the suppliers and doing everything you could to make things go perfectly. On the day itself, we could not have asked for more. Fran was a star – fading into the background but ensuring every single detail went according to plan. Your staff were superb, joining in and making sure all the guests had a wonderful time. And the food was just fantastic. We asked for a completely bespoke menu and Paul really did not let us down – it was a real highlight. So in summary, a massive thank you to you, and please pass on our thanks to everyone else involved. We will never forget the day and you guys were a huge part of that." 

(Kathryn and Chris Wides, wedding September 2013).

"I  just wanted to thank you (Faye) and Fran for helping to make our day very special on 27th July. Everything ran so smoothly, we didn't have to think about a thing, apart from enjoying the day!" 

(Emily and Marc Ingram, wedding July 2013).

"The venue is absolutely stunning, the food was amazing and all of the staff were fantastic.  Particular mention should go to Faye, Fran and Paul who all did everything they could to ensure that we had the best day possible.  As others have mentioned, they were very accommodating.  We couldn't have asked for more.  If you haven't already looked at Mill Hall, I would recommend that you visit to see for yourself." 

(Lynsey and Terry Dunsdon, wedding June 2013).

"We had the most amazing wedding day at Mill Hall and part of that was down to Faye, Paul, Fran and the rest of the team.  They all went over and above to ensure our day ran smoothly, even to the point of driving us to our hotel when we found ourselves the last ones left!  The log fire and Christmas tree in The Great Hall added that extra sparkle to our winter wonderland wedding and left the guests in awe at the beauty of the venue. Paul and his team did such a fantastic job on the food that some of our guests confirmed that it was the best wedding breakfast they have ever eaten! We would recommend Mill Hall to anyone; it truly is a magical venue and Faye does everything she can to help deliver the magic."

(Laura and Brandon Edwards, wedding December 2013).

"It was a truly spectacular day which literally couldn't have happened without you (Faye).  Everyone was delighted with what a beautiful venue Mill Hall is - and we couldn't have asked for better weather to showcase its  many charms!  Fran, Paul and the team were fantastic on the day - which to be honest, given how brilliant you've been from the beginning - was no less than I expected. I know I will look back on our wedding day over the years to come with nothing but incredibly fond memories."

(Charlotte and Richard Payne, wedding August 2012).

"We both fell in love with Mill Hall the moment we saw it and knowing that the proceeds would be going to such an amazing charity added something special to a day that was always going to be special for us.  It was the perfect venue for us - stunningly beautiful with a great and interesting history and plenty of space to spend the whole day."

(Helen and Ross McGauran, wedding April 2012).
