The perfect setting for your wedding…
Thank you for your interest in Cley Windmill for your wedding or civil ceremony.
Ceremonies take place in our beautiful round Dining Room for which we hold the wedding licence. We aim to gear the entire day around exactly what you want – some people prefer a small and informal affair, others like something slightly larger and more formal.
Please note that our licence only allows us to have 22 people including the bride and groom in the ceremony room.
If you would just like to enjoy the unique experience of having your ceremony in a Windmill, but are planning a larger reception elsewhere, we are very happy to accommodate this. We would ask that you organise the ceremony for 2.00pm and you have the use of the Ceremony Room and the Reception Room from 1.30pm – 4.30pm.
This gives you time after the ceremony to enjoy a glass of champagne and canapés which will be served in the Windmill Reception Room and to take photographs. You are welcome to use the balcony or the garden for these (weather permitting!). If you would like tea or even a Norfolk Cream Tea again we would be happy to do this. There is also a possibility that we may be able to organise a Wedding Breakfast dependent on the time of year and our diary commitments.
If, however, you would like to take over the Windmill and make a real occasion of it you can either book all our b&b rooms (which accommodate 16) or include our self catering cottage and take your numbers to 18 or 20. In this case, your wedding would take place at the later time of 4pm and then go on to dine in our atmospheric candlelit Dining Room at, say, 6.00pm. As from April 2019 we will also be offering an additional room, The Old Cart Shed which sleeps 2 plus 2 children. Details will be available shortly.
And if you’re looking for something a little different, The Ceremony People independent celebrants provide bespoke Wedding, Renewal and Naming Ceremonies with the personal touch, which are meaningful and unique, and put you at the centre of your celebration. www.theceremonypeople.co.uk.
