The cloakroom is on the first floor where you can hang your coats up/ leave possessions (this is at your own risk)
You should arrive no earlier than half an hour before the ceremony

No person under the age of 18 shall be permitted to purchase or consume alcoholic drinks. ID will be asked for if the person looks under 25 and failure to produce this will result in refusal of sale. It is against the law (Licensing Act 2003) for anyone under 18 to consume alcohol on licensed premises, anyone found purchasing alcohol for a guest under 18 years of age will have the alcohol confiscated from them and will be asked to leave immediately.
No alcohol can be brought on to the venue premises. No exceptions of any kind are made in this regard, Haarlem Mill will charge the client automatically should this policy not be adhered too.
The food has been carefully chosen for you by the wedding couple.
Please inform the couple directly of any dietary requirements at least one month before the wedding date. Please DO NOT contact the venue in regard to this.
Should you fail to let the wedding couple know of your dietary requirements the caterers cannot guarantee that a suitable meal will be provided.
LAST ORDERS & LEAVING THE VENUE
Last orders are at 11.30pm
Leaving your car? All cars must be parked in designated spaces. Cars may only be allowed to stay overnight if this has been prior arranged, a phone number and registration number will be taken prior to the event. Cars allowed to stay overnight must be collected by 9am the following day. Cars are left at owners risk.
It should be noted that, Haarlem Mill is located in a rural area away from a major town and as such there are only a limited number of taxi companies within the area. Taxi’s do not generally pass the mill so unless you pre-book your taxi it is unlikely that you will easily get a taxi at the last minute to take you home. Therefore we advise you book your taxi a few days before the wedding. If travelling to the wedding venue from a hotel allow plenty of time.
