Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
Victoria Hall has been host to so many amazing and varied weddings it really is so hard to choose! We absolutely love that couples can make the space their own! As we have no restrictions on suppliers we have seen some amazing catering options (Mexican street food, a pie and mash station, delicious sharing platters), beautiful decorations (including Pirate, Vegas and Disney themed weddings!) and some incredible bands and DJs that fill the dance floor! Overall we just love when we can help bring a couples wedding vision to life!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
All of our packages come with a dedicated Wedding Coordinator who will be there to guide you through the whole planning process, which means we can offer loads of advice on how to make the day run smoothly! Our only tip is to not rely on the English weather! Fortunately, Victoria Hall has multiple beautiful rooms that can be the perfect backdrop for your big day no matter rain, shine or snow!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
We think weddings are all about those little personal touches, letting who you are as a couple shine through! We have had a very artistic couple who hand drew personal portraits of each guest to act as a name card and favour! This really did put a smile on each and every guests face!

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
We are so lucky to be set in the amazing World Heritage site of Saltaire & many couples make the most of the beautiful village for truly unique snaps of their big day! If you want to stay within the venue Victoria Hall has so many beautiful spots for your photographer to make the most of! We have seen some amazing couples shots on the balcony overlooking the show stopper of a Main Hall. With a fabulous pastel décor & beautiful wallpaper the whole venue is a photographers dream!
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
We once had Terry Crews attend a wedding - in the form of a life size cardboard cut-out that moved from room to room!
What’s your favourite canapé?
We love a traditional canape, but we've also seen some amazing alternatives, ice cream vans, a crisp butty station, pizza slices and donut walls!
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
We will make sure to cut and present your wedding cake in portions to provide your guests with a sweet treat, but a pizza van always goes down a storm!
What is your venue's most unique feature?
We have so many! Being set in the beautiful World Heritage Site of Saltaire is unique enough, but we also house a Wurlitzer Organ - which you can ride up to the stage on to surprise your guests! Our venue really does have the wow factor & we love showing people around!
What part of your business are you most proud of?
Here at Victoria Hall we have an amazing team that all work super hard to help each couple have exactly the day they imagine! We are also a charity and act as a community venue to provide a space for classes, support groups, craft fairs, village events and even educational trips! We love that we get to make so many special memories for people, not just on their big day but as a huge part of our local community.
