An absolutely stunning Wedding Venue, located in Oxted Surrey, where I absolutely love being part of their team of respected suppliers. I always say to my clients that Coltsford Mill is just a perfect venue, and that really is my personal heartfelt opinion. As a venue it just works, and is a dream for any photographer. Not only do they have the most amazing backdrops, but as a family run business, the team are not only super efficient, but are so warm and friendly, adding a real personable approach to your day.
Set in 12 acres of beautiful country side, which features an old mill, various lakes with a selection of eye catching waterfalls, willow pools with huge carp, bridges and perfectly kept gardens. I love working here, and throughout the seasons the backdrops change so much, and each change in the weather brings another delight to your eyes.
After getting ready in their cute Mill Cottage, you are just seconds away from their 1st ceremony room, the Mill Room, which oozes a super cosy atmosphere with originals beams and the Old Mill as a backdrop as you take your special vows. Alternatively for larger weddings, you have the main contemporary barn, where the light floods in through the large windows, creating a bright and spacious feel to your ceremony.
After the ceremony, your wedding party makes their way around to the waterside patio to chill , where drinks and canapes await you all, and with the views of carp pools and the waterfalls, guests are always impressed. For your posed family photos you're never taken too far, we just pop through the gate next to the bridge, where your guests can be called over easily, and you still feel like you're socialising with everyone.
For your own couple portrait photos, the possibilities are endless. I am totally in photographers paradise here . Please have a look through the sample of images below, as there really are so many opportunities for different backdrops, and words can't really express how perfect it is here. The seasons change and the colours of the foliage change and another new delight appears. Seriously guys...… I cannot love this venue anymore if I tried.
Your guests are seated for the wedding breakfast in the main barn, a brightly lit modern barn with wooden beams, which spaciously seats up to 150 guests, and you make your entrance up the steps and into a loud roar of whoops and cheers as you also take your seat ready for a true culinary delight. You will be fed by Paul and his team, a super talented chef with years of experience, who's food can only be described as perfection on a plate. Every dish they create not only looks perfect, but every mouthful is so incredibly tasty. Perks of the job, I get to eat here too, so trust me - I'm talking from experience. Nom nom nom!
After the speeches, guests can either spill out onto the patio and many even venture across the bridge and go for a short walk along the lawns, sit on the grass or take a pew in the wooden gazebo while the barn is made ready for the evening party. On colder days, the spacious wood beamed bar provides a spot of warmth with the views of the old mill works.
Once the room is ready, and the band or DJ are ready to start playing, everyone is welcomed back into the main barn.. With a transformation of twinkle lights in the beams, and funky coloured uplighters on the walls; a party atmosphere is ready for you and your guests to party the night away with some incredible funky dance moves.... EPIC!!
I really cannot express enough, just how amazing this venue is. Book an appointment with the team, to be shown around, and I promise you; you'll fall in love with it.www.coltsfordmill-weddings.co.uk
