Information For Haarlem Mill

Haarlem Mill has been running as an exclusive hire, industrial wedding venue since August 2018. Being a new venue allows the team to be completely flexible and accommodating to their couples, we work with you to customise every aspect of your day, from the order of the day to building bespoke menus for your wedding breakfast and evening food. With 15 years experience in catering, the in-house team will make sure your day is delicious from canapes to cheese board.

Our venue is sure to wow your guests, with lots of our reviews stating how guests are still talking about us months later. We've been completely transparent when creating our pricing structure for every aspect of the business - we won't charge you an arm and a leg for a pint just because your not about to nip down the road to the pub. All our bar and food prices are in line with up-market bars and bistros and our exclusive hire venue costs are inclusive of chairs, tables, cutlery, crockery and glassware.

We're tried to create an offering that allows you to do as much or as little as you like. You could turn up tomorrow having done no additional work and your wedding would go ahead, we don't expect you to hire tables or provide your guests with plates. That being said, we love seeing your creativity so you are welcome to decorate as much or as little as you like.

Struggling to picture how your day might go? You'll start the day in our beautiful bridal suite, boasting amazing countryside views, you can be joined by your hair and make up artists and bridal party to begin the preparations for the day, we can provide a light bridal breakfast and prosecco or you are welcome to bring your own snacks for this portion of the day. When your guests begin to arrive they'll be bought into our upper bar lounge where the bar will be open for those first drinks of the day. We work with Bakewell registrar who will arrive to carry out your civil ceremony.

Our job is to seamlessly navigate your day so we will direct your guests into the beautiful, bright ceremony room which can seat up to 125 people before sending you down the aisle to say your vows. You'll then return to the lounge (in colder months) or our private outdoor terrace (in summer months) for your drinks reception, we'll ensure you get a drink and canapes whilst you have your bridal party photographs taken, this is a great opportunity to put on a bit of entertainment for your guests. We've had magicians, musicians and kids play areas... bring your ideas to life with some of our fabulous recommended suppliers, who can be found on our website. Moving downstairs we'll seat you for your wedding breakfast in our banquet hall, we can provide banquet style seating on trestle tables for up to 128 or square tables for a maximum of 72.

Our friendly staff will serve your chosen menu efficiently and with a smile, always happy to help. You'll enjoy a feast of your favourite foods before making the speeches of the day. We'll then serve tea and coffee in the first floor lounge where guests will be invited to help themselves or order drinks at the bar, during this time we'll quickly and quietly turn the banquet hall into your reception room with a fantastic space for dad's best dance moves. Your DJ or band can come along and set up before your evening guests begin to arrive, with a max capacity of 160, the party can really get started. We will help you to coordinate first dances, cake cutting, sparklers and evening food.

Last orders at the bar will be called at 11.30pm before carriages at midnight. But hey... who are we to tell you how your day should go? If this doesn't sound like your dream day, why not get in touch to discuss alternative options. You have the whole venue for the whole day and it really is up to you how you'd like your wedding to run. We've had a wedding breakfast that was actually breakfast... it went down a treat, with full english and continental options it really was a feast fit for celebrating.

We've had small ceremonies and big evening receptions... we've had couples who invite everyone all day. We've had requests for buffets, kids soft play, pets and more. Let's get together and talk weddings!

Team Haarlem can't wait to meet you.

Top Wedding Tips

Have a budget reserve - once you've set your budget and begun saving, we recommend having a little reserve completely separate to your other savings.

Plan the day that YOU want - it is so easy to fall into the trap of making your day about your guests.

Make an emergency 'on the day' kit - it's really hard not to stress about your wedding. So, why not try to eliminate any issues that could arise before they do...

The ladies at Haarlem Mill have been nothing short of AMAZING from the get go. We booked our venue over 2 years in advanced for it to then fall in the middle of the pandemic, they’ve been amazing rescheduling, communicating and being super patient with all of our questions and concerns. Can’t wait for our big day! Xx

Haarlem Mill was absolutely the most perfect venue to celebrate our Wedding
Haarlem Mill was absolutely the most perfect venue to celebrate our Wedding in February. The first time we visited (before the renovations were even complete) we absolutely fell in love with the industrial styling and amazing attention to detail. Each time we visited during the year of planning our wedding we loved the venue a little bit more. I feel so lucky that we were able to share this amazing place with our family and friends. From our initial meeting the team have been so helpful, friendly and professional. The day itself went without a hitch thanks to the hard work of all the team behind the scenes. The day ran like clockwork whilst feeling completely laid back and relaxed. One of the main things our guests still talk about was the amazing food! We were lucky enough to sample all of the menu choices we wanted to before the day and although it was a tough decision we're pleased we went with the pie (people are STILL talking about the pie, and the sticky toffee pudding!) We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful day in a perfect location and would recommend Haarlem Mill to anyone.

The day itself was amazing
We got Married at Haarlem Mill in May 2019. We can't have been the easiest couple to deal with as after choosing the venue we had to move away for work, that said the team at Haarlem Mill were very good at accommodating our various requests including a separate evening to taste the different items on the menu. The day itself was amazing. The setup worked incredibly well and the food was fantastic. We have had so many positive comments from our guests on the venue and the food. The bar staff and waitresses were brilliant. As with any wedding we undoubtedly had a few issues and I suspect this is one of the things most couples worry about when choosing the venue for their big day. I have to say that all our requests (including last minute changes) were all met with out any fuss. The whole day was stress free thanks to the smooth running and organisation of everybody that was working on the day and the work put in before hand. We would definitely recommend Haarlem Mill as a place to have your wedding reception. Many thanks from Claire and Ian

It was everything we dreamed it would be...
This place was the destination of our wedding and it was everything we dreamed it would be. The building is as majestic as the surroundings are charming. From the very beginning, Natalie and her team went above and beyond to ensure the smallest of details were to our specification and they catered to our every need. We had so many of our guests comment on and compliment our choice of venue that we would recommend to all! Can you get 6 stars?

Haarlem Mill for our wedding was the best choice we ever made
I could write a full essay on why choosing Haarlem Mill for our wedding was the best choice we ever made but I'll just give you the highlights! from the second we walked into haarlem on an open day it felt relaxed and homely and that's how we felt every step of the way through booking, planning and having our day here. The staff are incredible, so attentive and friendly and nothing was too much for them from replying to my daft questions over email to looking after everyone on the day and right through to clearing down the day after. All our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was, how friendly the staff were and how incredible the food was. For a rather anxious person I was able to just completely chill out through the whole process and enjoy it and that's all thanks to you guys! I don't have anymore words to thank you enough
