South Yorkshire’s wonderful city of Sheffield is host to so many alternative and urban wedding venues. If you’re thinking of planning your wedding here, you may find yourself spoilt for choice. Fondly named by its inhabitants ‘Steel City’, it seems only fitting to find a plethora of industrial and rustic style wedding venues. Featuring bare brick walls, heaps of fairy lights, hanging plants and colourful lanterns, here are 5 of my personal favourite alternative wedding venues.
Based in one of the most upcoming, alternative hot spots in Sheffield, Kelham Island Museum is one of the oldest industrial sites in the city. With two ceremony rooms to choose from, quaint cobbled streets, bunting, an old-fashioned phone box and the River Don quietly meandering by, this urban venue has plenty picturesque spots for wedding photos.

Hagglers Corner is a super cute cafe & bar based near Sheffield’s Antique Quarter. This gem of a venue has heaps of colourful paper lanterns, fairy lights and patterned bunting. The outdoor courtyard has a rustic & barn-like feel with it’s haystack seating and natural, hessian canopy. There’s also plenty of room for customisation & your own personal touch.
Independently run Sheffield city centre based wedding venue The Hide is perfectly quirky and relaxed. This warehouse-like, intimate venue is a great choice for urban weddings. Their converted Citron vans are a lovely, colourful addition to the venue.
Another industrial style number on the list, Trafalgar Warehouse is a beautiful 1930’s alternative Sheffield wedding venue. This big, bright space is located in the heart of Sheffield. Featuring whitewashed walls, concrete flooring, draped lighting and glass block walls which welcome in plenty of natural light.
Nice Neighbourhood is a strikingly beautiful, alternative wedding venue, just on the hem of Sheffield city centre. The atmosphere here is incredibly cool and relaxed. With vibrant colouring, modern hanging ceiling plants and a roof-top bar to boost, it is a lovely spot to celebrate your day in style.
