About Wrights Mill Farm

Wrights Mill Farm is a breathtaking wedding venue located on 250 acres of land in the rolling hills of Canterbury, Connecticut. The rustic farmhouse, barns, stone walls, and water-powered mill date back to the early 1700s, creating a charming backdrop for your special day. This locale not only offers an idyllic setting for your wedding but also offers services to meet your needs. From a DJ to a horse-drawn carriage, to chefs who work to customize a unique menu just for you, this venue offers it all.

Facilities and Capacity

This picture-perfect property offers a secluded retreat to hold your wedding ceremony and reception. The ceremony sites both offer truly magical settings to exchange your vows, with one by a waterfall and one by a pond. Afterward, you and your guests can filter to the Open Air Pavilion or the Barn for your reception. The Open Air Pavilion offers an outdoor space for up to 160 guests, complete with a bonfire pit and two horseshoe pits for games. Alternatively, the Barn can host up to 240 guests indoors. Additionally, the Barn features a get-ready room, a 1,000-square-foot and fully covered deck, and a 4,200-square-foot patio complete with a fire pit.

    Bride and Groom

    We got married at weights mill 7/4/21 and the entire experience was amazing. We have so many guests tell us it was the best wedding they have ever been to. The food, staff, drinks and venue were amazing. Curt and Bri are true professionals in making your day perfection. They even solved a mini emergency when the mother of the groom spilled food on her dress before the ceremony! Truly amazing!

    Best wedding experience!

    I CANNOT stress enough how much Wright’s Mill and their team were the perfect wedding venue for my husband and I. From understanding all our wants and needs to coordinating specific details that we wanted. And don’t get me started on Upbeat DJ… Pat and Mark were AMAZING! They are the life of the party and catered to all our requests whether it be to songs or just being there for my groom and I. Along with the wait staff… the ABSOLUTE best. My husband and I were catered to and they made sure we were doing good the whole wedding. Also, the Chocolate Rose Bakeshop was amazing! Our cake vision came to life and it tasted amazing. 20 out of 10 experience, Curt and Brie were so helpful throughout the process since we had to reschedule twice due to covid. I wouldn’t change this experience and this was the best night of my husband and I’s lives. We will be recommending this wedding venue for the rest of our lives and probably attending events in the future. Thank you so so much Wright’s Mill Farm and their team!!! ❤️

    Wright's Mill, WMF, the unstoppable crew up in Canterbury....I could go on & on about how wonderful the owners & staff are. Whether they are the main family running the venue, or the rest of the group working for them, you'll never feel anything short of welcome there. They go above and beyond for their couples & the energy is contagious. I'm lucky to have become a part of their "farmily" and cannot recommend them enough.

  • Courtney Lynn Photography Wedding Photographers

    Wright's Mill Farm is one of my favorite places to photograph weddings. The staff is professional, reliable and outstanding at making the day run smoothly. Wright's Mill has beautiful scenic backdrops including rustic barns and a covered bridge. I cannot speak highly enough of Wright's Mill and everyone there. Highly recommended!
