Wedding Reception Venue in Sheffield
Former Georgian Rectory with beautiful gardens
The Old Rectory is a beautiful Grade two listed stone building in Handsworth on the edge of Sheffield. Tucked away in its own quiet grounds this former rectory could be out in the middle of the country side, yet conveniently for you and your guests it's actually only a short distance from the transport networks of the Motorway and the city centre too.
Steeped in history, The Old Rectory is certainly one of South Yorkshire's more unique Wedding Venues.
From the moment you pass under the stone arch of the old coach house, to the front of the fine old Georgian Rectory, which looks out across its own lawn and garden, you will know you have found your perfect wedding venue.
We have over 40 years experience
We can cater for anything from 2 to 200 guests.
Sit down meal capacity is up to 130 to 140 guests.
A more informal buffet could be up to the maximum 200 guests.
With a choice of fine old Georgian rooms, there is also plenty of choice for the more intimate gatherings.
Greet your guests down the red carpet, come through the French windows into the fine Georgian Bramley lounge with its fabulous fire place. Mingle with your guests over a glass of Bucks Fizz or Pimms in the large Ballifield Drawing room, bathed in light from the high shuttered windows. Before finally sitting down to eat in the spacious Main Hall, that later on becomes the perfect place for a disco, or band alongside our excellently stocked bar.
Wedding Room Hire Options
Hold your special day on any day of the week. Exclusive hire of all the rooms together is available for the whole day from 9am to 1am, or just for the evening from 6pm to 12.30am and is the most popular option.
A different option is to hire just the main function hall on its own, which although may mean another events use other parts of the building, your hall would have its own separate access and amenities inside. So you wouldn't share space with any other event. Again you can hire for the whole day 9am to 12.30am or for just the evening from 6pm.
Exclusive hire of the Venue
We believe the best way to enjoy your day is to make full use of the facilities by hiring the whole building for the day. This guarantees you use of the lawns, car parks and all the ground floor rooms, ensuring no one else is using the building at the same time as you.

A bond of £200 will be taken for any wedding booking and held until after the event. The room hire includes opening the bar and setting out blank chairs and tables, no linens or decorations are included in the above cost.
