Your wedding at Hardcastle Crags

Bride and groom showered in confetti

Congratulations on your engagement. We’re delighted that you’re interested in celebrating your special day at Hardcastle Crags; a unique mill wedding venue in Yorkshire.

Gibson Mill is at the heart of a romantic woodland where opportunities for beautiful photographs are all around. Reflections in the mill pond, a walk across the bridge or stepping stones all make a great photo. The sweet smelling bluebells in late spring, and rich blanket of golden leaves in autumn provide perfect natural backdrops.

Ceremonies are held in the former Dancing Hall at Gibson Mill. This former cotton mill and entertainment emporium has operated off-grid for more than 10 years. We’re proud to say that it generates all its own power and spring water as well as minimizing waste, making this a very special place for your celebration.

We’re here to help you every step of the way, as much or as little as you would like, right up to your big day. Our wedding team has lots of experience and would love to hear your ideas and play a part in making them happen. 


Prices vary from £1,950 - £3,500, depending on your choice of package. Please download our brochure and information pack for full details.
