A quirky Yorkshire wedding venue is one of the most awesome places to get married and to celebrate your big day with your friends and family in style and today we want to share a few new pictures of our very own Quirky Yorkshire wedding venue.

River Mills Ballroom
Quirky Yorkshire Wedding Venue

Inside of a Victorian Mill in the small Yorkshire market town of Selby there is a hidden gem. Complete with a mid-century ballroom floor added on the first floor, River Mills Ballroom is an eclectic mix of fun, funky & industrial features which are sure to WOW your friends and family.

River Mills Ballroom is HUGE – over 5500sqft of space available for you to use as you see fit. With impressive ceiling height and a ballroom so big you have to see it to appreciate it, River Mills Ballroom never fails to impress.

Three Rooms For You!

The Grand Ballroom

At over 1800 sqft, the Grand Ballroom is massive – and we mean you need to see it to believe it. Comfortably holding 120 people table-seated and up to 300 standing, it is amazing and impressive space with bright, open windows that allow in streams of natural light.

The Grand Ballroom floor was installed in the middle of last century when the building became the infamous “Christie’s Ballroom”. This room features a lovingly restored floor, full sized bar, 13 enormous period windows, theatrical stage and original mill features.

Studio 1

Studio 1 is over 750sqft and is perfect for a drinks reception, evening buffet, chill-out room or even a wedding creche.

Intimate weddings of 30 and under can be table-seated in this space.

With a beautiful brick feature-wall and original wood flooring, Studio 1 is a gorgeous room perfect for you and your guests.

Studio 2

Studio 2 is over 1200 sq feet and features high ceilings and an original exposed fireplace.

Perfect for ceremonies (up to 65 seated), you can choose which beautiful aspect you want to feature in your photographs – the gorgeous exposed wall or fireplace.

Studio 2 is a fantastic space for a bistro-style chill out room in the evening or for a quiet buffet or separated bar.

Studio 2 is available (on select limited dates) to hire separately for small wedding meal/receptions up to 50 guests.

Never stop being a Flamingo in a flock of Pigeons.
