Looking back on 2020...

Wedding venue in Bath, Priston Mill, on 2020...

It may not have been the year we planned, but 2020 has been one for the history books.

We have all had to adapt and overcome many challenges this year, but our beautiful wedding venue in Bath has kept busy.  We've pivoted the business to welcome guests for Sunday lunch and most importantly, still managed to celebrate a few gorgeous intimate weddings.

Intimate micro-weddings 

We were delighted that we managed to move Josie and Fraser’s celebrations forward before tighter restrictions were brought in. They were so lucky that all their suppliers (and all 30 guests) were available to attend their wedding three days earlier than originally planned!

They went all out with their flower budget having a beautiful meadow garden arrangement in whites and greens for their beautiful wedding here in Somerset.  Our countryside barn wedding venue was the perfect backdrop! 

Even with a smaller number of guests the celebrations can be just as fun and meaningful – Josie even asked for Shania Twain’s ‘Man I feel like a woman’ to be played during dinner as it was a song that held a personal memory for her. All the guests sang along which was just lovely. This year has certainly been a time to think out of the box.

Below are some of their gorgeous images from their wedding day at Priston Mill – all covid safe of course!

Why not also take a look at our September blog which featured Lucy and Kristian who got married with us May this year, in the most glorious late spring wedding. It is a lovely insight into an intimate wedding from the bride and grooms point of view.

Kind words from guests 

As restrictions have continued to be in place for the weddings we decided that we would do what we do best – hosting and welcoming guests to our beautiful Tythe Barn, but this time we served them an indulgent Sunday lunch and invited them to relax and explore our beautiful wedding venue near Bath.

We had some lovely feedback, and here is one of the many emails that we received –

To the team at Priston Mill,

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for yesterday. My family and I had a wonderful time. After all the covid nightmares it was so lovely to go out and safely be able to spend some time together.

The food was absolutely delicious and the all the staff made us feel very welcome.

Sending you lots of best wishes for 2021, and hoping you can get back to normality hosting your weddings. (Although the option for Sunday’s in Somerset would be missed!) 

Claire & Family

It was a roaring success and we will be continuing serving Sunday Lunches through into the New Year – so if you haven’t booked your table already, check Instagram for dates or drop us an email to .
