Civil Weddings and Partnership Ceremonies

The Old Rectory at Handsworth, Sheffield is the perfect place to hold civil weddings and partnership ceremonies. A beautiful grade two listed stone building, it can be yours for the day for a full ceremony, wedding breakfast and night party.

Alternatively if you just want the venue for a couple of hours for a ceremony, photos and a drinks reception before heading on somewhere else that’s fine too.

From the moment you book, our wedding planner will work with you to make it is a truly memorable day, that is very much unique to you.

“Fabulous people and place…”

“On 26th march we had our wedding ceremony at the old rectory. We loved every minute of it and so did our guests most of which didn’t know this gem of a place existed. Special thanks to Tim who put us at ease from the day we first met. Tim and his team couldn’t do enough for us on the day and helped towards making our day so special.”
