To Tripadvisor: As the bride and groom of this wedding we were extremely hurt to return from our honeymoon to find the review 'friendly but cramped' has been posted. Most upsetting is that the aspects commented on are, albeit unknowingly, an unfair reflection of the Old Mill as the decisions/aspects commented on were made at our request and against venue recommendations. For instance, it was us that insisted on the numbers above the Old Mill's recommendation - to enable us to have ALL the people that we care so much about with us on our special day; it was us that requested no welcome drinks; an outside smoking area; a small dance area; and us that insisted on the alternative seating plan to avoid a 'top table' traditional layout, for important personal reasons.The Old Mill went out of their way to accomodate our unorthodox requests that did result in the desired more intimate setting we specificaly wanted. We could go on as, sadly, each negative comment is actually a reflection on the decisions we made - against the advice of this venue. It is us that have caused such upset to one of our guests and not the Old Mill and we our obviously terribly upset about this - no one wants to discover that their wedding day has been unpleasant for someone they care about in this way, but worse discover that a venue that have been so wonderful to us have been wrongly judged on decisions that were ours not theirs- we feel terrible. Please, please remove this post or ask the person who wrote to reconsider now they understand it was us at fault, not the venue: it is unfair for the Old Mill to be judged on the decisions we made as a couple. They were kind enough to accomodate our alternative requests against their recommendations and, for us, to create the most perfect, perfect day that exceeded all our expectations.
