"The team at Kelham Island were so incredibly helpful and supportive on the lead up to, and including, our wedding day. They were professional at all times and no problem or query was ever too much. They helped us with our ideas, gave us options and lots of input but at the same time managed to give us the freedom and flexibility to make our day our own.

I would truly recommend Kelham as a unique wedding venue, our guests loved its quirky nature and the variety of options open to couples is fantastic value for money. The entire team were a delight to deal with, they gave us the time and energy that a stressed bride needs without ever feeling like we were harassing them. 

Thank you for making our day completely individual, it was everything we wanted. And then a bit more."


"Words cannot really describe how fantastic a place Kelham Island is for a wedding.  From the moment you pass the entrance sign you are caught up in the magic of the industrial grandeur and history of your surroundings and each preparatory visit increases your excitement as you plan for the big day.  Ours took place on midsummer’s eve in 2014 and was truly stunning: from the intimate ceremony in the Stone Garden which housed our 135 guests comfortably with room to spare, to the bubbles reception in the shadow of the Bessemer Converter to the majestic River Don engine calling our guests to dinner in the wonderfully industrial main hall, every part of our special day was set against the most amazing backdrop.

The wedding ran like clockwork thanks to the cool, calm presence of the staff at Kelham Island who went absolutely above and beyond the call of duty both before, during and after the wedding to provide their guidance and support every step of their way.  Theirs is a can-do attitude like no other, bound up in a genuine commitment to make your special day perfect which leaves you safe in the knowledge that you are in extremely capable and caring hands.  The result?  We have endless happy memories and simply albums full of glorious photos which we will forever cherish from a truly wonderful day."
