DIY Weddings – Your wedding, your way
Sheffield Manor Lodge provides the perfect setting to create your big day. As a DIY wedding venue you choose your look and feel, whether you want casual boho or formal and sophisticated, it’s totally up to you.
Here you won’t find a long list of do’s and don’ts. The only real don’t we have is the fact that you don’t have to use our suppliers (caterers, florists, D.J.’s etc.), you can use you own. What you will find is a friendly team of professionals who can advise you in making your day a delight and the whole event unbelievably affordable!
Outdoor Wedding Ceremonies
The Turret House doorway provides the opportunity for outdoor ceremonies. We can provide seating for up to 120 guests and you are welcome to hire in additional seating.
Indoor Wedding Ceremonies
The Turret House is an intimate venue suitable for small ceremonies. There are two licensed rooms which each hold 25 guests seated on wooden chairs.
New Barn Reception Venue
Manor Oaks House extends from our traditional Georgian farm house into an enclosed garden filled with flowers. The barn-like room features original stone work and exposed wooden beams dotted with fairy lights and you’ll find a distinctive bottle bar tucked into the original house to provide drinks.
The room is yours to personalise how you wish. You can add your own decor, table settings, centre pieces, entertainment and use whichever suppliers you like to make your big day unique to you.
Our recommended numbers are 80 for a meal and up to 100 guests into the evening though if you don’t mind being a bit cosy we can go up to 120.
Catering and Suppliers
We want you to have your dream day, totally special and unique to you. You can use who ever you like for your catering, venue styling, florist, cakes and all your entertainment. Wedding Brochure
You might have that special supplier in mind already but if you're after a bit of help we have a suppliers list in our wedding brochure that you can browse through and find inspiration.
Please note: We advise all our couples to check with their caterers that they also provide serving staff as we do not provide this service.
How it works...
Weddings take place on a Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday or Saturday.
Ceremonies: On weekends you will have exclusive use of the Turret House and Tudor grounds. For mid-week weddings you will have exclusive use provided it is not Sheffield school holidays. The grounds are yours to use for your ceremony and photographs. We will set up benches on the day and provide a PA for entrance music and vows. We will clear this away once your party moves to your reception venue. If you wish for more than 100 guests to witness your wedding vows you are welcome to bring extra seating with you.
Receptions: The day before your wedding you have full use of the barn reception venue from 9am – 4pm for you to decorate and set up for your special day. External suppliers can also set up on this day. You have exclusive use of Manor Oaks House, bar and its gardens on your wedding day. The venue has three solid wood head tables, 15 folding guest tables and up to 100 chivari limes wash chairs. Our bottle bar comes with 2 bar staff and 1 glass collector for the duration of your event and if you let us know in advance we can help you move tables and chairs during the day to create dance floor space if required. We will also have 1 on-site member of staff who can be contacted in case of emergencies. Otherwise you and your suppliers are free to enjoy Manor Oaks House as you planned! If you feel you need additional staff support for that totally pampered feeling this must be sourced from your own suppliers.
Clear away: On the day following the event you have access between 10am and 1pm to remove decorations and clear away or you can choose for us to dispose of them for you.
