Full Description
With gorgeous attention to detail throughout, the venue features rooms for the ceremony, the wedding breakfast, and a one-acre lawn for outdoor drinks receptions, meaning all your wedding needs are met in one place. The Pumping House is a mix of old meets new; maintaining a lot of its original features including the distinctive chimney and internal brickwork, the venue has been restored to add a new, cool and chic vibe that is like no other. Set over two impressive floors you can hold a civil ceremony in the Ollerton room with its old style chapel chairs and beautiful parquet flooring. You can then move between the hidden gems of this venue; its quirky little themed rooms, including the cinema room and the botanical ‘gin’ room will delight your guests! The main engine hall with its 50ft high glass ceiling, which once was the heart of the pumping station and housed the main engine, is now the heart of your wedding. Accommodating up to 150 for a sit down wedding breakfast, this space will then see you through to the evening reception with its own beautiful bar area and dance floor space. There is actually not one but three bar areas that can be used for a variety of drink receptions and the events team love nothing more than working with couples to achieve a truly one off experience for their day. The Quarters Drawing inspiration from our storied past, The Pumping House unveils an oasis of beautifully thought-through, luxury apartments. Nestled at the rear of our historic venue, these sumptuous, self-catering suites reinvigorate authentic Edwardian architecture with contemporary elegance.
