Here we have highlighted some of the more frequently asked questions from couples, but should you have any further questions regrading the hire of Sopley Mill please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Yes it is free parking and guests are welcome to leave their cars overnight. We would advise that any valuables or personal belongings are removed from vehicles as we cannot take any responsibility for any missing items. Vehicles are left at the owner's risk. We can park up to 80 cars.
We have three wooden high chairs here at Sopley Mill which are available for use during the wedding breakfast. We do not however have any booster seats here so clients would need to supply their own.
Ideally, presents and other valuables should be taken away at the end of the evening. We do require all caterers to clear away any food/plates etc that they have used and take their own rubbish with them. We often have back to back weddings so all your items and suppliers items need to be removed that evening or can be left in the ground floor kitchen for collection by 10:30am at the latest the next day. For suppliers they must collect any items by 10am the next day.
Christchurch Chritax (01202 470000) or email@example.com. For guests requiring taxis, early booking is strongly advised, especially for Friday and Saturday weddings, as Bournemouth and Christchurch town can be extremely busy on these evenings.
For Health and Safety reasons, sky lanterns are not permitted.
Yes, Sopley Mill is fully accessible. We have a lift to the top two floors (not the Avon Suite/Bridal Suite) and a disabled toilet on the ground floor. Please note that whilst we have tried our best to make the Mill disabled friendly we are limited by what we can do in a listed building of the Mill's age. We highly recommend that you see the Mill and confirm it is going to work for you or your disabled guests before you book. The lift's capacity is 315kgs and is 92 by 141cms in size.
