Corley Mill House Wedding Bridal Suite

Bridal Suite

When we took over the Corley Mill House in 2020, we knew that we wanted to provide the most fabulous suite for our lovely brides and bridesmaids. We wanted to create a space not only for preparation but for relaxation and enjoyment of this once in a lifetime experience. 

Our brides who have enjoyed it have said we accomplished our goals. The suite features a counter with adjustable seats and mirrors for hair and makeup, an expansive kitchen with a full-sized fridge for you to set up your very own mimosa bar or have luncheon trays catered in, and two restrooms exclusively for bridal party use. 

You will also find plenty of space to hang your bridesmaid’s dresses as well as an especially high hook to hang your wedding gown on in a dedicated bride’s room complete with full-length mirror, comfy upholstered chair and mini chandeliers. Everything you’ll need to get ready for pictures and your big day.

All of our couples are welcome to use both the house and the garden for engagement shoots and bridal portrait sessions as well as – of course – their day-of photos. Not only are our east-facing windows in the bride and groom’s suites ideal for indoor photography, but we have a number of beautiful outdoor locations available including:

  1. The Jasmine Arch – a lush 8-foot arched trellis over the garden entrance. Covered in evergreen confederate jasmine, summer blooms are beautiful and fragrant.
  2. The Water Wheel – fully-operational at the lower garden with a small pond is filled with spring and summer-blooming Dutch iris. A spacious wooden deck is flanked by a beautiful hedgerow.
  3. Balcony – an ideal location for couples photos before guests arrive. The setting allows the tradition of the groom not seeing the bride beforehand. 
  4. The Pecan Grove – perfect for photos with your attendants. The circular drive is filled with 80-year old pecan trees and bordered by beautiful pink Knock Out® roses and crape myrtles. 
  5. The Pergola – the house’s front entrance, highlighted by café lights and covered in, jasmine, provides a gorgeous backdrop for going-away and evening shots.
  6. The Carriage Shed – for a more rustic-looking background, the weathered wooden building  housed carriages in the early 20th century. 
  7. The Mill Stone – Much of Lexington County’s history started here at the Corley Mill House, Our garden contains one of those early millstones when the the mill sat on Highway 378 for many decades.

How We Keep Our Clients Safe

We are so thankful for the technology of virtual meetings and live-streamed wedding ceremonies which we are sure will continue to play an important role in events moving forward. However, nothing compares with the real connections, ideas and fellowship of face-to-face gatherings. Your comfort level is important to us, and your safety is paramount. As we prepare to host you and your group, rest assured we will be following guidelines set forth by government officials, and health and safety professionals.
 
Beyond our numerous hand-sanitizing stations and high standard of cleanliness, we are prepared to adapt to meet your needs and address any concerns. As examples, some of our clients have requested temperature checks while others have implemented their own stoplight bracelet program. Please reach out to us and let us know how we can help or further explain what we are doing to keep our customers safe.
