Are you planning a wedding and looking for a list of local wedding venues in Sheffield or nearby? In this blog post I’m going to list some of my favourite places to get married in Sheffield and South Yorkshire that I had a pleasure to work with.

So what are the best wedding venues in Sheffield and South Yorkshire?

Well, I wasn’t going to answer that question. This is entirely down to your preferences. Even the most prestigious hotel in the area is not going to appeal to you if your goal is to have a rustic barn wedding. Before I jump into writing about wedding venues it’s important to to say that I’m not a kind of blogger who posts reviews either. Hopefully you would have figured it out when reading my wedding blog. This is not about to change, not any time soon anyway. There is nothing wrong with it of course, it’s just not what I do on this blog. I mostly put some of the real weddings I photographed or some wedding day tips.

I know there are plenty of fantastic wedding venues in South Yorkshire that are worth mentioning but it’s well beyond the scope of this blog. After all it’s a wedding photography blog and I will only touch on the subject of local venues and give you some ideas to play with if you’re on the lookout for a Sheffield wedding venue.

After years of documenting weddings (mostly in the South Yorkshire area) I can honestly say that I have not had any bad experience working with any venue I attended and please do not think otherwise if there are a venue out there that I worked with and it’s not on the list. There are however some places that for some reason got stuck in my memory for longer. It could be because I visited that venue a few times, maybe they had an exceptionally good coffee or maybe just because I really liked it. In other words this is in no particular order and no one has asked me or paid me to put them on this list. I’m only doing it so that I can say to couples wanting to get married: ‘Hey, are you getting married? Have a look at these fantastic wedding venues.

Wedding reception venues Sheffield

As a local wedding photographer in Sheffield I get to visit a lot of local venues in Sheffield, Yorkshire and all over the UK (even abroad) and could probably post a review every so often. However my experience of wedding venues is that of a photographer. It’s been over 10 years since we got married and It wasn’t even near Sheffield so we’ve never had the opportunity to experience any of the local venues as a couple. Instead this is going to be a list of some of my favourite places to get married in Sheffield and surrounding areas.

Type of ceremony

Are having a civil ceremony or a church wedding? You need to have a venue that can reflect the ceremony type. If you want to have a religious ceremony then you are going to have it in a church setting. Civil ceremonies can be carried out in a variety of places be it a hotel, a hall or even a local football ground! Consider the type of ceremony that you have and then pick a venue that matches. You may want to contact your local register office for a list of buildings that have been licensed for civil marriages

Wedding venues size

Your guests could be the ultimate determining factor in picking your location. Picking a venue in a place where the minimum amount of guests need to travel is important. You also need to think about securing a place that can hold all your guests.

Guest accommodation

You will also need to consider various accommodations for your guests, especially the ones coming from out of town. Many people enjoy having receptions at hotels because the guests can simply go up to their rooms after the reception and late night party for the greatest level of convenience.

Location of your wedding venue

How far dо уоu wаnt tо trаvеl, аnd how fаr will уоur guеѕtѕ be trаvеlling? Do уоu wаnt tо mаrrу уоur spouse near thе tоwn you live in, which mау bе fаr frоm уоur families?

Multiple locations or one place

You could also consider using multiple venues or locations. This means you could have a church and a venue for your reception. Or you could think about having the entire wedding in one place. Many churches would even consider renting out their basement for a reception or you could enjoy the wedding at the same hall you had planned a reception.

Do you want it outdoors?

An outdoor reception can come with some difficulties especially with the weather but it’s an excellent way to accommodate very large crowds and enjoy a beautiful day together.

Wedding venues in Sheffield on a budget?

Whаt iѕ your wеdding budgеt? Arе you a DIY аll-ѕtаr looking for cheap wedding packages and рlanning to аrt fullу dесоrаtе уоur venue withоut brеаking thе bаnk, or do уоu wаnt tо hand it all оvеrtо a рrоfеѕѕiоnаl?

Sometimes budgeting for just one venue for the wedding and the reception can really reduce budgetary concerns. If you’re looking to get married on a budget then consider a mid week wedding. Some venues and other suppliers might throw a little discount if you get married of peak.

Time of the year matters

In whаt season will your wedding take рlасе? Each ѕеаѕоnhаѕ its реrkѕ and dоwnfаllѕ.Trаvеl аnd accommodations are mоrе еxреnѕivе during peak timеѕ аnd hоlidауѕ, but thе wеаthеr iѕ less predictable during thе trаnѕitiоn ѕеаѕоnѕ, so уоu mау nееd to have a bасk-uр рlаn.
