Winter weddings have a special place in the heart of many. With the crisp air, the dark nights and the absolute beauty that an event can bring, it’s an experience like no other. Add to it soft, warm lighting and a beautiful meal you have a winter wedding of dreams.
There are so many advantages of a winter wedding and at The Mill our mission is to make winter weddings a real feature of the wedding calendar. What this means for us is that we will strive to provide the best winter wedding venue in Wakefield bar none.
Our exclusive West Yorkshire location also means that getting to and from our venue is easy – and much easier than somewhere in the middle of nowhere. It’s even better than getting stuck in the middle of nowhere due to bad weather. We think that a wedding should be remembered for all the right reasons, that’s why our winter wedding packages are really thought about to make the most of the time of year and the environment
With the work of amazing architects, designers and builders, The Mill is the perfect location for a winter wedding. The main hall can accommodate up to 200, and your guests will never feel cold thanks to eco fitted energy saving measures and modern heating facilities.
The venue is located adjacent to the Hepworth Gallery and is on the former site of Rutland Mills. This space has been re-engineered to be the birthplace of a new northern creative hub which means that there is excitement and a special buzz around the venue. It also shows that everything is possible in the North of England.
This means that we have space in so many different places around our venue locations that our entertainment areas can be used to maximise all the space or the bare minimum with no disruption to your guests throughout the whole event.
Having the right menu for your winter wedding is something that we specialise in. We use locally sourced meats and vegetables as well as expertly foraged produce. This means we get to use the Yorkshire countryside and local producers for a menu made from produce within a 5 mile radius. It goes to show that we have a lot to offer. Our menus strike a balance of warmth, creativity and ingenuity for the season.
Our menu changes with seasonally sourced ingredients, making each event unique and special to the things you want to experience on your wedding day.
Looking for an intimate wedding that strikes all the right tones? With our executive chef and event planners on hand, we can do just that. We turn the smallest event into something that really strikes home the beauty that a wedding should hold, no matter the size.
