Wedding Venue Reviews

We would like to say a huge thank you for making our Wedding so magical.
We live some 400 miles away from Gretna, so booked everything over the phone, we made two visits to the Mill before the wedding, on the first visit there were two weddings taking place, yet the staff could not have been more helpful, they gave us a guided tour and took the time to explain how it all works, the second visit we sat with a wedding planner and went through the guest list, rooms needed, and details of where to buy the flowers and cake, and how we would like the hall.
We used Jenny's cakes for our cake and it was exquistive, really beautiful, and we used The Flower Basket for all the flowers and Karen was so patience and helpful, the flowers were way beyond our expectations, we also used Trantum Events for the hall.
On arriving at the Forge Mill the day before the wedding, we were shown our bridal suite which took our breath away, it had recently been done out, and was just beautiful, not to mention how huge it was. We had Champagne and Chocolates waiting for us, and again staff that could not be more helpful.
Our guests also arrived the day before, which gave us time to have a meal that evening at the Forge, meal was great, highly recommended. We were able to chat to all our guests, in a relaxed and stress free manner, the next morning we has a leisurely breakfast with our guests, and then parted each others company to get ready for the wedding.
It was all a tad surreal as it was so relaxed and well organised, I spent the morning in the Bridal suite with female guests being pamered by Fiona and June, having our hair's done, drinking Champagne and eating Chocolates with nothing to worry about except not getting too drunk before the wedding.
We had young children in our party and they loved the safe enviroment of the play area.
The wedding went like clockwork, Craig Eving the Piper was amazing and John Carr is an amazing vicar, who made the service personal to us, Carrie Eving provided the Filming for the wedding and again the DVD is just magical.
This sounds like a lot of services, which some may think a lot of money, but in fact everyone we used worked together, and the whole wedding was a fraction of what we would have paid down South, and we know that we would never have got such a personal touch as the Forge Mill gave us.
Thank you for an amazing time, all our guests have been blown away and we have wonderful memories to last us a life time.

I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone at the mill for making me and my new hubbies wedding day fantastic. We couldnt have asked for anything better. Also a big thank you for the lady who looked after me on the day (I'm really sorry I can't remember your name) but you was fantastic.

We really don't know where to begin to Thank you and everyone at The Mill for making our wedding so breath takingly perfect. After travelling eight hours to get to you we was relieved to see how lovely it all was, just like your web site and brochure shows and so much more.Booking it all on-line without viewing first was a little worrying but our concerns was quickly removed as you did not let us down in any way for the most special day of our lives. The rooms was clean and fresh and extremely comfortable.The restaurant was exceptional- hot food ,tasty and good value for money with large portion sizes.
One thing I would like to say that made our wedding break was how friendly and helpful all your staff was, nothing was ever too much trouble and they was always willing to help. This is something that all my guest had also commented on and we were all extremely grateful for this.
You would of never of known there was so many other weddings happening on our day as we were made to feel we was the only special couple getting married. I had made so many additions to the package to personalise my wedding my way and you gratefully set it all up perfectly .
So from the bottom of our hearts we are truly grateful for your part in our wedding making it a perfect day we will never forget.

We had our wedding at The Mill on the 10th Feb and could not have wished for anything more perfect! Staff are excellent, Restaurant is excellent, Rooms are excellent and the Bridal Suite is absolutely amazing. The Mill itself and the gardens surrounding it are lovely and so well kept and the chapel where the weddings take place is absolutely gorgeous. We really did have the perfect day, it cou...ld not have been better in any way. Craig Irving piped for us - excellent, Gretna Flower Basket did the flowers for us - excellent, NNE's Wedding Ideas dressed the table and chairs for us - stunning, Fiona and June were used for hair and make-up - an excellent service, photos were taken by Hazel at Colin Carpenter Photography - an excellent service and cake was supplied by Jenny's Cakes - amazing. Thank you all so much for making our wedding day so special for us.

Fantastic day in a lovely venue staff so friendly and you are really made to feel very welcome. A day we will never forget..
Andrea and Neil Mahoney

What a wonderful experience. The staff were pleasant, helpful and organised.
We were the only wedding at The Mill and we had the undivided attention of everyone.
Bridal suite was superbly situated to The Forge (the chapel), as it was a bit blowy on the wedding day, so did not have far to go. The bridal suite was well decorated, clean and large, had plenty of room to get ready with the girls.
We travelled with small wedding party of friends and family, only 16 of us and we were all made to feel welcome. We also used Captured by Carrie as our photographer recommended by The Mill and she was lovely and made us feel so comfortable.
The grounds were well kept and stunning, with all the usual features you would expect to see in Gretna Green, signposts, kissing gate etc. The food was superb, everything from the breakfast to the wedding breakfast was of top quality. We will definately be returning, maybe for our first year anniversary.
