We’re spoilt for choice for wedding venues Sheffield

I think that THE biggest decision when planning a wedding is the venue. Some people know exactly where they want, others need a little inspiration, so I thought I’d put a post together to help out a little.

The wedding ceremony and reception

The easiest option is to hold the ceremony and reception in the same location – the logistics for your guests are so much easier and you don’t have to worry about transport between venues. However to do this you really need somewhere with a license which limits your choice of venues.

If one of the hundreds of beautiful churches aren’t really your thing then there are halls, manor houses, hotels, gardens and tourist attractions to take your pick from! Here are just a few…

Abbeydale Picture House

Located on Abbeydale Road,the Grade II listed Picture House was opened in 1920 as a theatre and cinema. A really interesting space retaining a lot of its original character in a shabby chic way.
