Great Places to Get Married Around Sheffield
So, you’re getting married and you’re looking for a wedding venue in Sheffield.
I won’t do a full review of each venue because I only really get to experience them on the day, there are a lot more factors involved.
Since I am never so nosy as to ask how much people paid for their venue I cannot comment on value for money, that is something you will have to decided for yourselves once you have your quote from the venue.
Instead I have decided to show you a few photos of each venue highlighting why I liked them from my perspective as the photographer.
I will share a few points about what I liked and give you a link to the venue’s website so you can find out more about it.
It’s probably worth noting that these are the best wedding venues that I personally have photographed in, there are probably others out there too.
This is an ongoing project and as I visit more venues that I like I will get them added on here, so do keep checking back.
Oh and can you do me a huge favour?
If you do end up booking one of these venue based on my recommendation, it would be amazing if you could tell them you heard about them via JLM Wedding Photography. I won’t get any kickbacks from it directly, but you never know :-).
Wedding Reception Venues in and around Sheffield
Rossington Hall, Doncaster
Highlights: A spectacular building with very attractive grounds. Attentive staff and bags of character.
Photographer’s tip: Inside Rossington Hall is indeed beautiful, it is also rather dark. Be prepared with your own lighting, fast lenses and cameras which are happy in low light.
Rutland Hotel, Broomhill
Highlights: Friendly and helpful staff, great character and a charming little garden.
Photographers’ tip: The dining room can get a little cramped, weaving around the room can be challenging so stake out a decent spot for the speeches.
The Old Rectory, Handsworth
Highlights: Very charming spot, plenty of grounds and loads of character in the buildings. Cosy feeling despite the size.
Photographers’ tip: The sun sets behind the building so head into the garden during golden hour.
Garrison Hotel, Hillsborough
Highlights: Unique bare-brick interiors, plenty of space and very accessible.
Photographers’ tip: This is a former army barracks so all the hotel corridors are outside. They make for a handy vantage point over the courtyard for large group photos.
Norton House Country Club
Highlights: Hard to describe but I got a very cosy, homely feeling here. Staff very friendly and accommodating.
Photographers’ tip: There is a nice green patch behind the venue, plus Graves Park is just over the road if you struggle to find somewhere to get nice photos. Also, watch out for the mirrors on the pillars!
Burton Street Foundation
Highlights: Off the beaten track this one. Tonnes of ‘indie’ character, plus you’ll be able to tell your friends you had your wedding reception where they filmed the Job Centre scene in the Full Monty movie.
Photographers’ tip: Plan for your evening shots to have an urban feeling, there are no gardens here.
Sheffield Town Hall
Highlights: The default wedding ceremony venue in Sheffield. Despite the fact that they turn around a seemingly endless flow of weddings every Saturday I have never known anyone feel rushed or treated like it was anything other than the most important day of their lives.
Photographers’ tip: Get your photos on the entrance lobby steps taken before your ceremony because you will be leaving via the rear and another party will probably be occupying the entrance by the time you are out.
A staple of the Barnsley wedding scene, Wortley Hall should be on everyone’s list of must-view wedding venues in the South Yorkshire area. Especially if you are looking for a traditional yet modern wedding venue with extensive grounds and spectacular scenery inside and out.
Photographer’s tip: If it’s raining and you can’t get your group photos outside then the upper landing is a great spot for group shots.
Located just off Eccleshall Road in Sheffield, Whirlowbook Hall is another must-view wedding venue.
If the beautiful gardens aren’t glorious enough for your photos you can always take a short run out to the peak district. When you get back you have a hall filled with character and charm. A real winner of a wedding venue.
Photographer’s Tip: Since the grounds are a public space watch out for dog-walkers in the background of your pictures.
