Venue of the Year

Added on 29th December 2015
Rayleigh Windmill has always offered something different as a venue for anyone getting married. Now that status has been recognised with the historic building winning the Essex Wedding Awards title - ‘Wedding Venue of the Year – Something Different!’

The event held on Thursday 26 November saw the judges comment: “Small but beautifully put together! Judges felt that Rayleigh Windmill really was ‘something different!’ They especially liked how they offered a dedicated event coordinator working nonstop for every couple, along with the beautiful grounds for excellent photo opportunities.”

Portfolio Holder Community, Cllr June Lumley said: “The Windmill is not only a fantastic venue but also stands testimony to what can be achieved when people come together. From a crumbling monument to a by-gone age, the Windmill was given a new lease of life and has now been put to a lovely use thanks to renovations by councils and the time and dedication of many staff and volunteers. The Windmill has always been jewel in Rayleigh’s crown, but this award means many other people across the county will now get to hear what a gem we have.”
