Fall for Priston Mill this Autumn

The seasons this year here at Priston Mill, our two stunning wedding venues near Bath, have been nothing short of spectacular. Who can forget the ‘Beast from the East’? Our team certainly won’t, as we had three weddings that weekend and all worked extra hard to make sure each occasion went exactly as planned. Our summer was a scorcher, the gardens looked beautiful and the heat made for some very happy couples on the day.

Now Autumn is upon us, the nights are drawing in and the leaves are turning. This time of year is especially magical when surrounded by nature as we at Priston Mill are. The oranges and reds set against a cold cloudless sky can create the most beautiful of days, perfect for a wedding.

Take full advantage of what this season has to offer and bring the outside in with simple but very effective decorations. 

With the nights falling darker that much sooner, soft lighting and clever use of candles cast an almost mythical spell. And for something special to serve your guests during the reception, perhaps try our Mulled Cider.


The Watermill (as seen in images above) is the perfect place to appreciate the English countryside. In this unique venue we can accommodate a minimum of 50 to a maximum of 90 guests during the day, and up to 130 in the evening. We still have availability for some weekend dates in September or October next year. If you’re looking for something in school holidays, October half term could work perfectly for you!  

The Tythe Barn provides some beautiful backdrops for family photos among the foliage should you be blessed with a little sunshine on your special day. The larger of our two venues, here we can look after 80-150 guests during the day and up to 200 during the evening.

Autumn gives us so many gorgeous ideas for decorating your wedding venue. Our venues suit a relaxed, rustic vibe and bringing the outside in can work really well. Pumpkins of all shapes and sizes are a clever nod to the season, whether they be filled with flowers or used as a simple but effective candleholder.

Fairy lights and candles create atmosphere, as the days are likely to be cooler and the nights darker. Bridesmaids look beautiful in darker colours, and the many options of seasonal flowers are stunning.

We are always happy to discuss your menu choices before the big day and we have some perfect dishes to offer your guests this season.

From our ‘To Dine’ menu, we could recommend a starter of sweet potato, roasted garlic and thyme soup followed by Pork loin and crackling served on a pesto mash. An upside surely, to getting married in Autumn/Winter has to be indulging in Sticky Toffee Pudding for your dessert!

We would love to meet you and discuss your Autumn wedding for 2019 onward. Please do give us a call or send us an email, we'd love to hear from you.
