About The Arches

Dean Clough Mills, Halifax
West Yorkshire, HX3 5AX

The Arches is a truly charming industrial venue. Originally the largest carpet manufacturer in the world, Dean Clough Mills has been lovingly restored by the Hall Family into a unique complex of modern, inspiring Mills. Bursting with creativity, the Mills also house the largest private Art Collection in the whole of Europe, a Theatre and a Hotel.

The Arches was established in 2014 when we saw the opportunity to hold distinctive and memorable events within the Mills. We have been hosting incredibly individual Weddings and exclusive Events ever since. Our beautiful vaulted red brick ceilings, iconic Northern Lights and Yorkshire Stone floors provide the backdrop for some serious styling and artistic touches.  The space is inviting and lends itself beautifully to a variety of styles.

"The team at The Arches were amazing!!! We had our wedding here back in June and the team made our day so special and relaxed!! From start to finish they were very communicative and very supportive of our requests! Our day went so smoothly and was just perfect and we can't express how much this was down to them! They gave us enormous amounts of advice and time to organise ourselves which was extremely helpful! They made our day so relaxing and incredibly enjoyable! Special thanks to Abi and Tabby for being there for us from start to finish, you were the best! Such a friendly team to be part of! And thank you so much for the rest of the team on our special day - the catering team, waiters and waitresses, bar staff, door staff and Diane for seeing us off into the night and making everything run smoothly! You were all amazing!! Thank you so so much!!!"

Quite unusually for a venue of our type, we offer a versatile capacity, meaning that despite our 300 person capability, we can also host a minimum of 60 Guests without compromising experience quality. Plus we, remarkably for a quirky venue, offer all-inclusive Wedding Packages as we have our own exceptional Executive Chef & Team, rather than a long list of Caterers, who can create exactly the right food and drink options to suit you and your Guests. Ask us about our Tasting Nights and Chef's Table Options which are included as part of your Package.

"Fantastic location, decorated to specific requirements and the room looked stunning. Couldn't of asked for more helpful and friendly staff and organisation. Food and attention to detail to the event was exceptional. Highly recommend."

Our dedicated Weddings & Events Team can help you realise your vision and walk you through the planning process. They have unrivalled experience in high-end, luxury Event Management with some seriously special suppliers at their fingertips who, just like us, believe in creating exclusive and impressive moments to remember.

Even better than we could ever have imagined...
Venue Service

By Megan & Perry, on 17 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 06 Apr 2019

We had an absolutely amazing day! We cannot thank you or your staff enough for making it even better than we could ever have imagined. Every single guest has told us how great the venue was, and how impressed they were with the food and general atmosphere of the Arches.

You and the rest of the team were brilliant...
Venue Service

By Laura Tidbury, on 17 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 23 Mar 2019

We had such a fab day! Everything went so smoothly during the day and I know that’s down to your excellent organisation – you were really on the ball. The venue looked great and the food was delicious. We had so many comments from our guests about how much they loved the venue and how much they enjoyed the day. Thank you for everything you did – you and the rest of the team were brilliant.

Diane the Wedding Manager is a must
Venue Service

By Sandra & Martin Tidbury, on 25 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 23 Mar 2019

Dear Diane - I would like to thank you so much for helping to make Laura & Dave's Wedding such a beautiful day. Your attention to detail and efficiency does you credit and you were certainly able to instil us with confidence that everything would go well. I will happily recommend the venue as a Wedding option but you as the co-ordinator is a must!

My guests had a brilliant day
Venue Service

By Rachel & Luke, on 28 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 29 Sep 2018

Just wanted to drop you a quick message this morning to say a big thank you for a brilliant day on Saturday. If I don’t say so myself I don’t think I’ve attended a better wedding. The team was very organized but relaxed which set the right atmosphere. The food was delicious, the afternoon tea stands were a real highlight. The Venue as expected looked amazing! My guests had a brilliant day and have given loads of wonderful feed back. If you want to give me a few of the most appropriate review sites I’ll direct them that way. Also a big thank you to Jamie for sorting out the scaffold. I know he had to push to get it down in time so very much appreciated. Rachel and Luke

You were the best

You made us feel special
Venue Service

By Jamie & James, on 25 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Jun 2018

Wow. Thank you so much for everything you did to contribute towards our "big day". What an amazing day we had. The venue looked incredible - just what we wanted - and the hospitality was excellent too. Tabby, you put our minds at rest - you listened + knew your stuff - stunning combinations. You looked after us on the day and made us feel special. Thanks!

No stress at all...
Venue Service

By Richard & Sophie, on 28 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 14 Apr 2018

Hello! Hope all is well in Calderdale! We are now a week back from our honeymoon and while slightly sad it’s over we have some amazing memories and hopefully some great photos soon too. Just wanted to say a huge thank you from Sophie and I. The day could not have gone better and it was exactly the kind of relaxed experience we were looking for. Diane did a fantastic job of making sure we were all fed and watered and that the rest of the evening went smoothly. You hear a lot of stories of other friends/family having stressful planning time but we didn’t at any point feel stressed and that’s testament to your approach to the whole thing - which we really appreciated. We’ll certainly not hesitate to recommend The Arches as a venue to any friends and family who have an event to plan. We’ll also make sure to share some more photos as we get them. Thanks again

The venue was stunning
Venue Service

By Laura Milner, on 25 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 21 Oct 2017

We had an amazing wedding day at the Arches in September. The staff team were amazing, the food was outstanding and the venue was stunning. I would recommend this venue in September/ October. The lighting inside the venue looked magical at dusk. We didn’t want a text book wedding and wanted something that reflected us as a couple. The Arches embraced all our ideas and really made them work beautifully. Highly recommended

It was everything we wanted and more
Venue Service

By Gavin & Lynsey, on 25 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 30 Sep 2017

Apologies for the delay in getting this across to you. We just wanted to thank you once again for making our day so perfect. It was everything we wanted and more. Thank you for all of the support in the run up and making such a flawless day. We hope to see you soon at one of your events.

We could not have been more impressed
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs J Lodge, on 25 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 26 Aug 2017

We celebrated our wedding here with 100 guests in August 2017 and throughout the planning process and the big day itself we couldn't have been more impressed with the venue and the team. We made all the arrangements from abroad, with only a couple of short visits—one when we decided to book, and another just a week beforehand to work out last minute details. Not being nearby could have made the planning really difficult, but thanks to the team the organisation went smoothly and the big day itself was fantastic. Abi was a real star and helped us out with suggestions and gentle reminders at every stage. She was responsive and reassuring and everything else that you need from a wedding planner/coordinator! Jamie was also super helpful, and on the day he really went the extra mile to make sure our guests were entertained. Both were always easy to reach and happy to help. We'd highly recommend The Arches: the perfect combination of fantastic, unique venue, and a highly capable, attentive and efficient team.

You were all amazing

Will do a full write up later but wanted to leave 5 stars now - we had a perfect day and the venue looked gorgeous! Everyone commented on how it took their breath away walking in the room. Every single member of staff we interacted with was so friendly and couldn't do more for us. Thank you for everything! Xx
