The Vaulted Ceremony Room
An atmospheric room filled with character
Light dances over red brick vaulted ceilings and exposed walls to create a breath-taking and romantic back drop for your wedding ceremony.
Exposed brick walls, polished glossy concrete floors, cast iron beams and a unique vaulted ceiling create a reverent and atmospheric space filled with character. The size and layout of the room creates a beautiful natural aisle and grand entrance perfect for guests and groom to catch the first glimpse of the all-important bride on the big day.
The ceremony itself is held against a backdrop of exposed brick, beautifully lit to create a dramatic yet romantic scene.
The Ceremony Room is licensed to hold civil ceremonies and partnerships for up to 200 guests.
The Spinning Room
Reception canapés and drinks
Following the wedding ceremony, or on arrival, The Spinning Room makes an impressive setting for post ceremony canapés and drinks, combined with the South facing courtyard and riverside gardens. The industrial aesthetic of the cast iron columns and vaulted brick ceiling create a marvellous juxtaposition against the luxury of decadent Chesterfields and rich woollen carpets. There is an impressive antique dresser, which is the perfect setting for you to add your own touches such as guest frames and picture memories.
The Wool Hall
A breath taking room bathed in natural light
Following the drinks reception your guests are invited to take their seats in the Wool Hall for your delicious hand chosen meal. This stunning open plan space boasts massive pitch pine beams exposed brick walls and quarry stone floors. A beautiful light and airy environment is created by the south facing Georgian windows and a Juliet balcony with original doors overlooks the courtyard; Guests will sit on either banquet or more traditional circular tables and flexible seating makes this a beautiful and inviting space whether you’re inviting 25 or 220 guests to your wedding.
The Dressing Room
A cosy space that has been furnished with the perfect mix of luxury and vintage.
As guests are welcomed to The Wool Tower, the bride will have the chance to enjoy some much-needed ‘me’ time and some pre-wedding pampering in The Dressing Room. This relaxing room will calm nerves, with a vintage dressing table, chaise long, sink, coffee machine and full length mirror all set against exposed stone walls. This cosy room leads out onto the Vaulted Ceremony Room allowing the Bride to put final touches to make-up or take 5 mintues with her Dad, whilst guests take their seats and await the grand arrival.
It also gives you the ability to have dramatic outfit changes during the day, so you can wow your guests and groom with more than one dress or hairstyle if that’s what you choose because remember it’s your day your way at the Wool Tower.
It’s Party Time
Dance the night away in style
As night falls the cast iron columns, vaulted brick ceilings, exposed stone walls and polished floors provide a truly magical atmosphere.

Let the ambience and the music inspire your guests to strut their stuff on the dance floor while you soak up the heady mix of joyful celebration, delicious drinks, tasty evening food, enjoying your day your way.
