About The Mowbray

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.

    Flawless

    We had absolute confidence in The Mowbray team from day one and the way they pulled off our evening wedding party did not disappoint. We would not change a single thing about our wedding day and they did an incredible job, from the venue styling, facilitating surprises for our guests to the amazing food. We would do it all over each month if we could and can’t thank the team enough for everything they have done. If you want a wedding done right, do it at The Mowbray

    The best venue in Sheffield!

    As soon as we stepped foot in The Mowbray, we knew we'd found the perfect venue for our wedding reception, it really was breathtaking! Lucy & the team did not disappoint; the venue styling was more than I ever imagined, the service on the day was first class and the food was divine. The whole day was fabulous, from start to finish. If only we could do it all over again!

    We couldn't have imagined or wished for a more!

    We had a really relaxed approach to our wedding and by relaxed, I mean completely indecisive and vague, but The Mowbray/Chimney House team just 'got us'. We had our wedding ceremony at The Chimney House followed by a few drinks and then walked round to The Mowbray for our wedding reception. We could not fault the preparation, guidance and seamless support provided by the team; we didn't have to worry about a single thing. The Chimney House wedding reception room was decorated in a laid back and subtle but stylish way with flowers to match my bouquet and this was a theme which carried on at The Mowbray. The favours and confetti were laid out on the chairs, and our guests had drinks and Mowbray-made brownies served to them. Back at The Mowbray our custom cocktails were ready on arrival, and we were presented with our beloved espresso martinis! We opted for a relaxed reception without a formal sit down meal and speeches; instead, we chose the Yorkshire Grazing table which was beautifully presented and our guests are still raving about the food! We felt truly special on the day and could not recommend the venues enough for couples looking for a somewhere unique, with its own identity and the ability to cater for all types of weddings/events from the traditional to the relaxed. We wish we could do it all again...maybe when we hit a significant milestone!
