Your team made us feel so welcome.
I could not let this opportunity pass by without comment. You and your team made us feel so welcome yesterday at Luke and Rachel's wedding and on the previous day when we came to set up. You helped to make it a very memorable, special and enjoyable occasion even though we were limited to 15 in number in these unprecedented times. The rest of our family shares these same sentiments.

Thank you for the perfect day!
Thank you so much to Joanne and the team for making our day so special ! Nothing was too much from organising a tasting at the Saville restaurant to making sure our Lab Callie was well looked after . The Venue was beautiful and everyone raved about the food ! There are very few venues that have a lake , an abbey , beautiful gardens and a blank canvas and we are so glad to have found it . Thank you again and we'll be back shortly to finally have a go on the pedalos . Mr and Mrs Crowson

Fantastic wedding day!
We had a fantastic wedding day at the mill at Rufford. The day just flowed perfectly with no awkward gaps. The team running it were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. Everybody commented how nice the food was and I would especially recommend the cake platters where there’s something for everyone.

amazing and truly perfect from start to finish
Our wedding at Rufford Abbey Mill was absolutely amazing and truly perfect from start to finish. Michelle and her team helped to make our ideas come to life in the most beautiful way; from the very first meeting we felt confident that this was the venue for us. We were able to create the wedding of our dreams in a truly stunning venue with lovely surroundings perfect for photos and all at such a reasonable price. Being able to take photos at the Abbey was also a huge bonus. All of our guests commented on how wonderful the day was, how phenomenal the venue was inside and out and how friendly and helpful the staff at the Mill were. The food was delicious from the canopies right through to the evening buffet, the venue looked exquisite and elegant for every part of the day and everyone had a fantastic, fun and memorable time. Michelle was a star throughout the whole wedding planning process, she was easy to contact, always responded quickly and spent lots of her time with us to listen to our ideas. We were able to put our own stamp on the room with our own decor as well as have the option to use some of the venues decor for finishing touches to some of our displays. On the day both Michelle and her team could not do enough for us to ensure we had a smooth running, stress free and magical day; we will treasure the memories forever. Thank you so much for making our wedding absolutely perfect in every single way; we had the best wedding day we could have ever asked for.

The happiest husband and wife in the world
To Michelle, Lorraine, Joanne and all the incredible staff at Rufford Mill. Where do we even start? How can we start to say thank you for the best day of our lives? We are both still on cloud 10 about what an incredible day we had. It was perfect from start to finish, we have had so many messages from friends and family telling us what an amazing time they had, and how beautiful the food and venue was. You all worked so hard to make sure that we didn't ask for anything, and that all our dreams for our big day came true. We are so thankful that we chose Rufford Mill to get married at, I doubt so much that anywhere else could have made the memories that we did with you guys. It's so nice to know that our decorations and bits and bobs that we collected over our engagement will be used to make other couples happy. Thank you again, here are some photo's that our friends and family took. We'll send some profesh ones over when they arrive! Lots of love and thanks, The happiest husband and wife in the world, Mr and Mrs Proud. xxxxx P.s Who knew a wedding on a Thursday could be such a good thing??
