It was always the general idea to take our little business and run with it - in any direction that it took us. Always say 'YES' right?
So, in the latter part of 2020 during lockdown, we were given the opportunity of running our own venue so that we could have a place to take our decor and host our own parties and events. The idea was that we would run Sweetness and Lights Events and continue to take our decor to other venues and into people's homes but we would also have a space where we could let our creativity loose and display our decor freely.
After a lot of blood, sweat and tears - The Mill House Venue finally became a reality and we opened our doors at the beginning of August 2021. We took ownership of the keys at the beginning of the year and in conjunction with the directors of the building, a hell of a lot of renovation, refubishment and redecoration took place. Between us, we created the building that you see today. Windows were reinstated where they had been bricked up since 1971, the ceiling in the main function room was taken down and new downlighters, LED lighting and decorative plasterwork instated. Wood panelling along with some fabulous wood walls and wood art installations took up a lot of time but well worth as the final results are truly amazing. Some copper and gold touches here and there - not to mention wings in the ladies and the gents toilets and super cool touches of decor throughout have created a unique space which is enhanced by adding the finishing touches of decor that we have at our disposal.
We're looking forward to hosting our first wedding in February 2022 and hopefully many more to come.
