Our Runaway Weddings are designed to make your wedding day stress free and all about you. Your wedding ceremony will take place in the Summerhouse at Millbrook Estate. The Summerhouse will be dressed for your wedding and with a roaring log fire during the winter months. We can also open the 5m doors and you can enjoy a nearly alfresco wedding ceremony in the warmer months (many couples chose to hold most of the wedding ceremony outside).
Extremely friendly and happy to help. Linda and Collette are our in house wedding coordinators who support couples throughout from booking to making sure the day runs smoothly. They love being part of your special day and help create unforgettable memories.
We are more about respect than rules. The only rule we have is that the accommodation is not equipped for a reception, it is the equivalent of the bridal suite and therefore only guests staying in the accommodation have access to the accommodation. The only exception is on the day of the wedding if the wedding couple would like someone to get ready with bridesmaid, best man etc.
We are back home after a beautiful stay and perfect relaxed wedding at Millbrook. Thank you so much to Linda Kinkaid for being so welcoming and putting us at ease. I can also highly recommend Cathy Procter for hair and make up and Rebecca Roundhill for photography – look at these beautiful shots and they were both so lovely to work with. We also had a gorgeous afternoon tea from Pamela Beswick and a delicious private dinner by Gary Shapland. The flowers from Melissa Baker were just perfect too. Thank you so much to everyone involved in making our wedding so memorable and good luck to all the future brides and grooms on here – you’ll have a fab time! Xx
From arrival to departure everything was perfect. Our wedding was everything we had hoped it would be, and the weeks stay completed the experience. Thanks to the wonderful owners and staff for making Millbrook an exceptional place to visit.
We can’t wait to book our next stay.
