Weddings at Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet
The unique historical venue of Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet is now available to host Civil Wedding Ceremonies.
There are three stunning unique spaces at the Hamlet that are licensed for the ceremony:
The Tilt Hammers
The Learning Centre
Each with different capacities, from a select 10 guests in the Tilt Hammers, the more encompassing Undercroft which can seat 30 guests and the Learning Centre with a capacity of 80, each offers a different wedding experience.
The site can be hired for 3 or 4 hours depending on which of our options you choose, to include: time before the ceremony for guests to arrive and the wedding couple to meet the Registrar, the ceremony, time after the ceremony to enjoy some light refreshments, enjoy the surroundings and to take the all important photographs.
Although licensed for ceremonies there is a historic covenant applied to the Hamlet which prohibits alcohol from being allowed on the site. This, combined with the limited space in the buildings, means that we are unable to host receptions and parties. However, we can still offer a sumptuous range of canapes or a genteel traditional English Tea accommpanied with non alcoholic refreshments.
Starting from £720 further details of our 2016/17 packages can be downloaded.
One Hamlet - Three Choices of Ceremony Loccation
The Tilt Hammers
For an intimate ceremony, the Tilt Hammers are the most atmospheric part of the site. This really is Sheffield’s version of getting married over the anvil, more commonly associated with Gretna Green, with the water wheel driven shaft which powered the hammers in the background and the blacksmiths forge and anvil to the fore.
Although limited for numbers inside the Tilt Hammers, with its unglazed openings, friends and relatives are able to stand outside and see the Ceremony.
Forming one side of the Hamlet’s courtyard this brick and stone built former covered store with its grinding wheel columns and views of the heritage buildings can be simply dressed to create a charming venue for a romantic Ceremony. Again being open sided there are opportunities for additional guests to see the Ceremony taking place.
The Learning Centre
The largest and most contemporary area for wedding ceremonies the Learning Centre is a modern stone built structure with high ceilings and oak beams inside.
