Fancy doing something different and unique for your wedding day??? Love the outdoors??? If so, have you ever considered the idea of getting married in a wonderful windmill…

It’s a bit too late for me as I am already married but I often find myself day dreaming about weddings and while sipping my piping hot cappuccino I found myself imagining getting married in a fairytale windmill.

Cley Windmill is an excellent example of a beautiful windmill that not only can you hire out for your wedding reception but they also have a wedding license so you could be married on the premises too!! The venue is small holding up to 24 guests but it is perfect for a really romantic intimate wedding.

The windmill is loacted in a small village called Cley-next-to-the-sea in Norfolk and is simply wonderful! It really is the stuff dreams are made of. It dates back to the 18th century, is within walking distance of the village shops and has incredible views of the sea and nearby salt marshes.
