About Rayleigh Windmill

If the idea of getting married at a windmill appeals to you, you really ought to consider holding your wedding at Rayleigh Windmill. This beautiful structure is Grade II listed and over 200 years old, so you and your guests will get a real sense of history as you take in your surroundings here.

Rayleigh Windmill is a popular venue for weddings in Essex, as it’s totally unique. It’s been sympathetically refurbished to retain the original wooden beams, but benefits from all the modern comforts of heating and fresh, white walls. The space is something of a blank canvas so couples are free to decorate with flowers and balloons (though nothing can be attached to the walls and no open flames are permitted).

The space is very small, with seating for just 20 guests, but we reckon this makes it all the more special. Pick your nearest and dearest to attend your civil wedding or civil partnership before heading somewhere nearby for your wedding breakfast or afternoon tea. Rayleigh boasts a raft of venues for receptions along with other suppliers such as florists, jewellers and bridal attire shops to help make your day extra special.

Weddings at Rayleigh Windmill come with a dedicated event co-ordinator who will ensure that your big day runs perfectly. What’s more, as the Windmill is located next to the Windmill Garden and the historic Rayleigh Mount, it offers a perfect backdrop for your wedding photographs. Access to Rayleigh Windmill on the day of your wedding includes time afterwards for photographs and removal of decorations so you needn’t worry about rushing through your vows.

To arrange a viewing or to discuss your requirements contact Rayleigh Windmill’s dedicated wedding co-ordinator. As this historic wedding venue is very reasonably priced, dates get booked up a long way in advance so be sure to anticipate this.
