About The Venue Bowers Mill

Bowers Mill, Branch Road
Barkisland, Halifax
West Yorkshire, HX4 0AD

Our lovingly restored venue is housed within Bowers Mill, which is situated within the heart of the Yorkshire Countryside near Halifax in West Yorkshire. Previously a former textile woollen mill, Bowers Mill is surrounded by woodland and a lake sits in front of the mill.


We are an exclusive use venue, and hold three Wedding licences. Couples are offered flexibility and choice where they set their ceremony. 'Bowers' originally the carding and weaving room can hold up to 400 guests, however this space can be divided to create a more intimate setting. The Spinning room overlooks the rooftops of Bowers Mill and has capacity for 120 guests, or choose an outdoor ceremony - say "I do" under the pagoda overlooking the lake. 


We have renovated the space giving a nod to its original mill heritage. Stripped wooden floors, high ceilings, exposed brickwork and wrought iron pillars make it the perfect setting for an industrial chic Wedding. Along with a stylish interior The Venue Bowers Mill is surrounded by breath-taking scenery; a woodland backdrop and a lakeside setting create the perfect background for your outdoor wedding photographs.


We are a family owned company and love to host wonderful weddings. We offer a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for you and your guests to enjoy, and our experienced events team work closely with couples to achieve their dream day. The Bowers Mill Boutique Hotel is currently in development on site and is due to welcome guests during 2020.

Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Davis, on 06 May 2020Date of Wedding - 15 Feb 2020

The Venue hosted our wedding on February 15th 2020 and we cannot express how grateful we are to all the staff throughout the whole process. Such a friendly and professional team that were so easy to communicate with. No issue was too big for them and they accommodated everything we asked for to make our day special. The Venue itself.. you only need to see it once to fall in love with it. The Spinning (ceremony) room in particular is the most beautiful place, giving the perfect ambiance for a romantic wedding. As soon as we saw it, we knew we had to have our wedding there. The location is picturesque with photo opportunities inside the venue, but also outside in the beautifully setup location. We would just like to give a special mention to Jade, she is so professional and organised, she made the day run with not one hiccup. She calmed me down when I panicked about storm Dennis – I really cannot express how much it meant to me that she tried to take all my panic away. For the price that you pay, honestly you cannot fault it at all. The all inclusive prices include practically everything you could want to make the space perfect. I could go on and on for paragraphs saying how wonderful everything is but honestly, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for everything. Mr & Mrs Davies

We recently got married here and to say the day went without a hitch is an understatement. The staff were absolutely fantastic and Jade did an exceptional job of coordinating the whole day. The whole day just oozed professionalism and the team could not have made it more perfect. I would 100% recommend The Venue as a wedding venue, the packages suit all budgets, the communication from Nicola, Adam, Janice and Jade throughout was great and the added touches that The Venue offer as part of the package make a huge fifference. The rooms are beautiful and sympathetic to the original mill but still very on trend, but the most impressive part is that you get complete exclusivity on your day at a non-exclusive price. Thanks guys, you made the day everything I hoped it would be. Mr & Mrs Jagger

When we walked into The Venue we just knew it was the perfect place for our Wedding reception. We booked 22 months in advance and we were lucky to book a package which gave us flexibility to work with. Jade (our coordinator) used her expertise to advise us and give plenty of ideas which worked perfectly for our day. The Venue looked stunning inside and out and all of the staff on the day worked so hard and were so helpful. Perfect venue for a perfect day.

We got married here in November 2019 and what can we say.. it was just perfect. The Venue is just stunning and so beautifully decorated with those loving touches that you only get somewhere that cares. All the staff – Jade, Nicola, Adam and all the staff that worked on the day – were incredible. Nothing was too much to ask. If you’re considering having an event here, do it, you won’t regret it. We had the best day which we will never forget love heart Mr & Mrs Wheelhouse

By Mr & Mrs Heap, on 06 May 2020Date of Wedding - 03 Aug 2019

Thank you so much for all your hard work on Saturday for our wedding. The day was perfect in every way. The effort you all put in was show throughout the day. Everyone commented on how organised it was and the food was excellent, again everyone commented on how nice it was. Please pass on my thanks to Andy for getting my grandma a cup of tea, I had promised her if she came I would get her one, so a big thank you to him for that. Also to Nick the DJ, I owe him a bag of skittles! Mr & Mrs Heap

By Mr & Mrs Ellen, on 06 May 2020Date of Wedding - 01 Jun 2019

We got married at The Venue last Saturday. It was the perfect venue for us – beautiful inside and out. The Spinning room where we had our ceremony and the meal is such a naturally attractive and romantic setting. The Venue staff dressed the room with candles, hurricane lanterns and fresh foliage from the gardens – we didn’t have to add much more – it was ideal. In the evening, we were in the main room which is perfectly set up for a party. The wedding coordinator, Jade and her staff could not have works any harder for us throughout the weekend – setting up, making sure the day ran to perfection and cleaning up afterwards – we cannot thank them enough. Mr & Mrs Ellen
