The perfect setting for your wedding…
Thank you for your interest in Cley Windmill for your wedding or civil ceremony.
Please note that due to current Covid-19 restrictions we are unable to offer our usual service. We hope to be able to return to normal very soon.
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 an absolute maximum of 28 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 22 or 24 (max. 26 with z beds). In this case, your ceremony could be at the later time of 4pm and then you could go on to dine in our atmospheric candlelit Dining Room at, say, 6.00pm.
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.
