The Mill

Coming Soon

The latest in wedding venues and event spaces to hit Wakefield and West Yorkshire is, The Mill. A unique and stunning location that is all set on the former grounds of Rutland Mills. A 19th Century factory that is being turned into the northern creative powerhouse thanks to the partnership team of Tileyard North and The Yorkshire Food Group – yes, that would be us. 

We now have an event space that will not only capture the essence of our industrial past but also an insight into our future. We are going to be creating one of the most spectacular wedding venue locations in Wakefield and West Yorkshire in the former mill. 

Alongside our team of chefs with international experience and hosts with years of organising events we have a space that has been designed to be perfect for your wedding day. Big open plan dining, views of the Hepworth Gallery and gardens – and access to the later for photos – as well as a forward thinking creative hub make this the event space to be at. 

Our packages will have you wanting to capture the day with your family and friends and make this truly one of the most special days in your lives you will never forget. 

Waterton Park Hotel

Walton Hall, Walton, Wakefield, West Yorkshire, WF2 6PW

Known for being a mansion that sits on its own island, Waterton Park Hotel is a treasure trove of beauty here in West Yorkshire. Surrounded by 26 acres of woodland, water and accessible via a stunning iron bridge this 19th Century home used to belong to an eccentric traveller and naturalist, Charles Waterton who, transformed the lake and the surrounding forest area into a wildfowl reserve and sanctuary.

The structure rests today as it was nearly restored by Waterton making it a spectacle of a time that we can enjoy in today’s fast paced and hectic society.

Imagine getting married here… well you can. The Hotel is licensed to hold weddings as well as civil ceremonies and the staff are on hand to ensure that you have absolutely everything you need to have a fantastic day. Whether it is something intimate or something more glamorous, this is the place to throw a proper wedding shindig in West Yorkshire!
