The Arches in Halifax wedding venue


Industrial Wedding Venue

The Arches Dean Clough in Halifax, West Yorkshire is one of my favourite wedding venues to photograph. It offers so much warmth and character that you’ll struggle not to fall in love at first sight!

This industrial wedding venue is tucked away within the Dean Clough Mills complex in Barkisland – so you can be sure you’re not disturbing any neighbours with your wedding reception music!

Why The Arches in Halifax is a Great Place to Get Married

There is so much space on offer at The Arches! The ground floor converted mill is large enough to host weddings with over 100 guests. The original stone floor, vaulted brick ceilings and wall of windows are just a few of the stunning features that make this industrial wedding venue so special. It’s always a joy to photograph weddings here!

The open plan feel to the venue allows you to be more versatile with the layout of your wedding as there are a number of ways to arrange the ceremony and reception layout. At The Arches, you can really make it your own with wedding decor too!

There will never be any need to worry about the weather as there’s so much indoor space to play with, including a separate bar area for after the ceremony.

The Arches wedding venue also allow confetti indoors so you can be sure you won’t miss out on a confetti photo on your big day no matter how unpredictable the British weather.
