Highly Reccomend
The Engine Shed hosted our wedding and honestly can't recommend it highly enough. Lee and the team were fanastic from the moment we first walked through the door to make our initial enquiry. So friendly, professional and accomodating from start to finish. The day was perfect - the venue looked amazing at each stage, with Lee again going the extra mile with VERY last minute tweaks. As we had the whole wedding there, it was amazing watching the speed and precision of the team turning it around between the ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening do. A well oiled machine. The food was absolutley delicious - we've had so many compliments on this from our guests. I just wish I could've eaten more, but nerves leading up to the speech got the better of me! A fantastic unique venue with a fantastic team. Thanks so much for making our day perfect. Photo Credit @HannahBrooke -

Phenomenal Day
We had our wedding here on 9th April 2022 after a long time of waiting through the pandemic and it was well worth the wait! Lee and the team are phenomenal at what they do and the day ran perfectly. It was everything we imagined it to be and the food was unreal 🤤 which meant we had a lot of very happy guests too 🙌🏼 We're so glad we chose The Engine Shed as our wedding venue and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to everyone 💜

Wow! Wow! Wow! Lee is the best wedding co-ordinator ever and Alan and I had the most incredible wedding day! He is one big reason why we booked The Engine Shed!! He attended to our every need and created the smoothest running wedding! The venue is so original and unique and all of our guests were complimenting the venue, staff and food all day!! (The portions were HUGE!) The food was incredible, we opted for the street food as our wedding meal and I’m so glad we did! It was so delicious!! We used Event Light and Sound and Create the Look to dress the venue with drapes, a fairy light canopy and chivalri chairs. Linda Cottee Flowers dressed the venue incredibly from the ceremony into the evening, with the most stunning arch and centrepieces!! Lee and everyone at The Engine Shed, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!! A day we will cherish forever! xxxxx

Totally totally awesome
The moment that you walk into The Engine Shed in Wetherby you cannot help but take a sharp intake of breath as this venue simply takes your breath away. The perfect venue for a wedding or party. It has everything you could ever ask for with 2 dance floors and 2 bars, awesome lighting and sound system. The food is unbelievable value and so very very tasty but most of all it is about the people. Lee and his team cater to all of your needs like an invisible fairy working in the background to make sure everything runs smoothly. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they are always striving to give you the very best and make you feel like the most important couple in the world. It is so obvious that they love what they do and they do it so incredibly well. I cannot recommend this place any more highly if I tried.

A faultless perfect day
We got married at the engine shed very recently on our 4th postponed date. We can’t rate the ES highly enough, throughout all of our moved dates Lee and the team were amazing and worked with us so calmly. When we finally had our date it was so worth the wait. We literally had nothing to worry about, the team were so organised, helpful and friendly. The decor was stunning, the food is still being talked about. Wish we could do it all again. If it was out of 10 we’d go 15! Thank you all so much. Rosemary & Tony x
