The Mowbray is a luxuriously historic and marvellously unique wedding venue in Sheffield. We are independent, family run and operated - opening in September 2018 after a 3 year restoration of a crumbling, derelict building from 1889.
We are made up of 4 spaces - the main feasting hall, a British garden on the roof terrace for native blooms, herbs, drinks and photographs, our kitchen and the bar - an 8ft antique slate clad beauty held together by original brass screws stocked with local gins, craft ales and a beautiful wine selection.
Luxury for us means beauty, attention to detail, provenance, thoughtfulness and beautiful touches. We burn our own ‘essence’ in each room inspired by our roof garden and the past lives of the building and sometimes guests give it as favours or gifts. Guests love our temptingly tactile, 20ft tall ‘Mowbray Green’ velvet drapes which can be drawn or left open for some magnificent natural light displays and our 2 metre wide chandelier made from reclaimed 1940’s glass bricks which gives the most perfect twinkling light for first dances and the most romantic of photography.
We are famous for our styling and stories behind even the smallest item - from florals through to Sheffield cutlery for your wedding feast. We look after everything from venue styling, table settings, floral abundance, food and consultations, bespoke cocktails and carefully curated champagne, wines and beers to create weddings and parties with soul. We encourage you to luxuriate in the knowledge that time and style are on your side and we will attend to the smallest of details with creativity, flair and an understanding of simple beauty, elegance and a sprinkle of glamour.
