Romantic urban beauty personified, we’re already booking up fast for the most glorious weddings in 2018/19 and 2020/21. Our dedication to seeking out simple elegance and dusting the day with a sparkle of glamour in our beautiful building from 1889 gives romance and the feeling of belonging a whole new meaning...
We took care of Mary & Eamon’s heavenly wedding in September, 80 guests for the daytime and extra guests for the evening taking guest numbers up to 120. Mary and Eamon are real foodies - Mary’s a chef - so it was really important to them that their wedding feast was their perfect match! They choose our Laden Table menu for a long lazy paced luncheon served up straight from The Mowbray Kitchen hatch by our team to the soundtrack of the Buena Vista Social Club. Margaritas, speeches and dancing followed…
We have to admit one of our favourite moments so far was of Mary & Eamon dancing their first dance under our 1940’s chandelier against the soft, plushy backdrop of our Mowbray Green velvet drapes to Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Into My Arms…
As midnight approached, guests feasted on a roaming cheese board with Mowbray made chutney, relishes and artisan crackers for tasty snacks.
Arrivals at 3pm, Goodnights at Midnight. Mary & Eamon chose a 8 hour hire of The Mowbray and added an extra hour on to accommodate an earlier wedding ceremony.
Guests enjoyed House Serve G&T, House Wine, Estrella Damm, Kelham Island Easy Rider and White Russians and Margaritas. We arranged a drinks package to include a welcome glass of fizz served in champagne saucers and half a bottle of wine per guest on the table.
We took care of all of the extras, table favours, the cake arrangements including slicing, introducing the Father of the Bride, a private photoshoot on the roof garden and taxis for guests.

“Thank you so much it was a wonderful day, everyone was really blown away by the venue and the food! We cannot recommend The Mowbray and its staff enough. From the decor to the food, every detail was thought out and delivered beautifully while being so relaxed it really allowed us, as the couple, to simply enjoy the experience. Flawless."
