Rufford is the ideal venue for your wedding: a beautiful site, steeped in history.
With stunning views across the lake, natural surroundings and a relaxed rural atmosphere, Rufford Mill provides an enchanting backdrop to your wedding or partnership ceremony.
The first floor of the Mill has now been converted into The Talbot Suite, a stylish venue for civil weddings and partnerships. This listed building has an historic exterior but a fresh and contemporary interior.
The Talbot Suite, on the first floor of Rufford Sawmill, is easily accessible by both lift and stairs. It can comfortably seat 150 guests theatre-style or 80 guests banquet-style in an airy and spacious 49ft x 29ft. There is a dedicated car park in the Mill courtyard and additional parking a short walk away in the woodland car park.
A photogenic venue
At the heart of the park are the picturesque remains of Rufford Abbey, which are surrounded by park land, woodland, formal gardens and a lake.
During your ceremony and reception you are invited to take full advantage of the beautiful photo opportunities that surround Rufford Abbey and Rufford Mill. Rufford Abbey steps, the bridge across the lake, the bluebell woods and the Formal Gardens are just some of the enchanting locations available.
