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.

    You absolutely did us proud...

    “I just wanted to say a very big thank you for the work that was put into our wedding behind the scenes and on the day, we had such a fantastic day. The comments from our friends and family often began with the words ‘wow’ and ‘fantastic’. The venue looked beautiful and the opportunity to come in the day before was great. The food was fabulous and again everyone, and I mean everyone that we spoke with said the same. So thanks once again, you absolutely did us proud!!!!”

    Thank you so much!

    Dear Diane and the team at The Arches
    Thank you so much for all your hard work, planning, preparation and assistance on the day to make our Wedding go without a hitch. A standard thing to say but it genuinely was the best day of our lives and we could not have done it without you. All the staff were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble and Diane was always around to help plan and even just give us some much needed reassurance that everything would be perfect. Which it was! Thank you so much, lots of love Elaine & Fraser

    If you are considering getting married here, do it

    We got married here in May and I honestly say it was perfect. Diane was brilliant, helping us so much with the planning and preparation. Every detail was considered. The staff pulled out all the stops on the day and the venue looked beautiful and really different. All our guests have raved about it ever since! Thank you so much to all the team for all your help, and if you are considering getting married here, do it! you won't regret it! ??

    We could not have picked a more amazing Venue for our Wedding. Nicola & Diane couldn't have been any more perfect.

    Even better than we could ever have imagined...

    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.

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

    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

    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

    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
