A perfect day
We were so pleased with the setting that we decided it would be perfect for our wedding as we wanted a quiet but special day. On the day of the wedding everything was perfect to the last detail, the registrar made the ceremony seem to flow wonderfully well. We then went to the Mill garden for photographs which looked amazing against the Mill background. All in all it was a perfect day which we will always remember
