Located down near Christchurch in rural Hampshire, the historic Grade II-listed Sopley Mill is licensed for civil ceremonies and is available for gorgeous DIY wedding receptions. It is situated on the stunning Avon watermeadows, affording splendid panoramic rustic views, and the sturdy 18th-century watermill building itself displays authentic interiors with an intimate and evocative aura. Sopley boasts an abundance of history. There has been a mill on the site over the Avon watermeadows since before 1066 and the Grade II-listed building that stands today was constructed in 1780. It has been owned by the Benton-Jones family since 1870 and was a working mill up to the 1950s. Since then, it has been open to the public, and recently established as a wedding venue.

Some of the products we can deliver include

Linen Hire

Linen is an important thing to get right for all kinds of events. We offer a large selection of linen, in different colours, shapes and sizes to ensure we can do our very best to meet your needs.

We stock linen in a range of different colours. It could be that you require a specific colour of tablecloth so that your tables match your theme; or maybe you need table runners to add a just a hint of colour to your table. We have the stock available so that whatever you choose, we can almost certainly be of assistance.

We know well that banqueting tables come in various shapes and sizes. It doesn’t matter if your tables are rectangular, oval, or circular, we have the linen available to fit all standard sizes of tables. Our team can also help advise on the size you need depending on how much “drop” you want surrounding the tables – just ask on our live chat feature.
