Couples are offered flexibility and choice where they set their ceremony. 'Bowers' originally the carding and weaving room can hold up to 400 guests, however this space can be divided to create a more intimate setting.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Nicola Walton
The Venue is a reclaimed industrial space originally built in the 1880s. We first fell in love with the Venue when we married here ourselves, celebrating with our family and friends in 2003. In 2016 we became the proud owners of The Venue, which is set within Bowers Mill a former woolen mill. We have restored the space giving a nod to it’s original Yorkshire mill heritage. There are wonderful original features that we have kept within The Venue, including the original floor in the Spinning room.

The Venue hosted our wedding on February 15th 2020 and we cannot express how grateful we are to all the staff throughout the whole process. Such a friendly and professional team that were so easy to communicate with. No issue was too big for them and they accommodated everything we asked for to make our day special. The Venue itself.. you only need to see it once to fall in love with it. The Spinning (ceremony) room in particular is the most beautiful place, giving the perfect ambiance for a romantic wedding. As soon as we saw it, we knew we had to have our wedding there. The location is picturesque with photo opportunities inside the venue, but also outside in the beautifully setup location. We would just like to give a special mention to Jade, she is so professional and organised, she made the day run with not one hiccup. She calmed me down when I panicked about storm Dennis – I really cannot express how much it meant to me that she tried to take all my panic away. For the price that you pay, honestly you cannot fault it at all. The all inclusive prices include practically everything you could want to make the space perfect. I could go on and on for paragraphs saying how wonderful everything is but honestly, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for everything. Mr & Mrs Davies

Mr & Mrs Jagger , married on 04/01/2020 5.0 We recently got married here and to say the day went without a hitch is an understatement. The staff were absolutely fantastic and Jade did an exceptional job of coordinating the whole day. The whole day just oozed professionalism and the team could not have made it more perfect. I would 100% recommend The Venue as a wedding venue, the packages suit all budgets, the communication from Nicola, Adam, Janice and Jade throughout was great and the added touches that The Venue offer as part of the package make a huge fifference. The rooms are beautiful and sympathetic to the original mill but still very on trend, but the most impressive part is that you get complete exclusivity on your day at a non-exclusive price. Thanks guys, you made the day everything I hoped it would be. Mr & Mrs Jagger

We got married here in November 2019 and what can we say.. it was just perfect. The Venue is just stunning and so beautifully decorated with those loving touches that you only get somewhere that cares. All the staff – Jade, Nicola, Adam and all the staff that worked on the day – were incredible. Nothing was too much to ask. If you’re considering having an event here, do it, you won’t regret it. We had the best day which we will never forget. <3 Mr & Mrs Wheelhouse
