Weddings, Civil Ceremonies and Celebrations at the Windmill
100th Windmill celebration
The stunning Rayleigh Windmill hosted it’s 100th celebration in September 2012!
Neil and Hayley Clary became the 100th couple to celebrate when they married at the popular venue.
The new Mr and Mrs Clary said: “We chose the Rayleigh Windmill for our wedding as it is a very unique and intimate venue, and a lovely place to re-visit in the future.
“We have had such a beautiful day, thank you to all the staff at the Windmill.”
To celebrate the 100th ceremony taking place at the Windmill, the Council launched a competition for people who wanted to book the venue to enter a prize draw.
The first ten people to book an event at the Windmill received a 25 per cent discount on their special occasion. The names also went into a hat with a chance of winning the top prize of a 100 per cent discount.
Paul Adams and Clair Sullivan from Harlow were the lucky winners of the prize to win a 100 per cent discount on the hire of the stunning 200-year old venue for their wedding.
After being told about the win, Paul said: “It’s fantastic news and we’re so happy to have won the draw. The Rayleigh Windmill is such an intimate and unique venue that I hope it will be a really special day, we’re both looking forward to it.”
The beautiful Rayleigh Windmill is a popular venue for weddings, civil ceremonies and celebrations.
The Windmill is more than 200 years old and has been sympathetically refurbished to offer a unique venue for your civil wedding, civil partnership, naming ceremony or renewal of vows.
