A beauty of a riverside wedding venue. Mill House Gardens at River Nene Cottages is idyllically located on the banks of the River Nene opposite Water Newton lock near Peterborough.  But before we start let’s just say they don’t profess to offer you an all singing, all jazz-hands dancing, glitz ‘n glamour, ‘glass ‘n chrome’ wedding extravaganza; quite the opposite.

What Mill House Gardens offer is a stunningly beautiful,  tranquil,  rural riverside wedding venue. This informal English country garden setting will allow you to run wild with your imagination, planning skill and artistic flare to create your special and memorable wedding for up to 150 guests. You hire the land, you have the wedding you want.

The grounds offer you half an acre of extensive striped lawns reaching down to the river bank, a 25m squared lawn area upon which covered structures can be erected, next to a 120 capacity C11th church with its seamless boundary of gardens. With the grounds being mainly laid to lawn, a few big statement trees and a soon to be renovated Boathouse the space offers a simplicity and serenity. Calming and charming in equal measure. There is no light pollution here either making those big eastern clear night skies very grand and very starry.

Like all the best treasures in this life, natural glitz and sparkle comes for free. 



In addition, there is access to a gorgeous white LWB Bentley Arnage for the day and a nearby ‘for hire’, 1930’s classic ‘Wooden Lakes’ 20 passenger day boat that your guests could enjoy throughout the day giving you are truly unique and  memorable element to your day. 

So if you like the autonomy of organising everything from tipis and marquees to pop-up-pubs and posh cabin loos in a riparian setting, then this riverside wedding venue is the one you’ve been waiting for. It’s also worth mentioning that there is a local festival and one of the owners of this venue is part of the team that organise it, therefore they know lots of local tipi, tent, food and drink businesses.
