Every couple wants a wedding day to remember. With a quirky venue you can achieve that more easily. So here is some inspiration from around Yorkshire.

Arts venue 

Left Bank LeedsLeft-Bank Leeds, Cardigan Road, Leeds LS6 1LJ 

This Grade II* listed former church was built in 1908. Its high vaulted ceilings, imposing columns and original features give instant impact and ample space to design your wedding reception.  The venue can accommodate a wedding party of 50 to 300 – so plenty of space for your nearest and dearest. 

Two package options are available which cover venue hire only (from £1,350) or venue hire with drinks package and coordination (from £3,550). Therefore, it’s important to note with this venue that tables, chairs, linen, décor and AV etc are charged as extras. The venue doesn’t have a wedding license so you would also need to hold your ceremony elsewhere. 

Funky gallery space
