Your Ceremony at The Fleece

Your Forever After Starts Here

Our Grade-II listed Stone Barn with oak floors; timber beams and natural acoustics offer the perfect setting for saying ‘I DO’. We are licensed for civil ceremonies, partnerships, blessings and renewals of vows within the exclusive use of our function room, private bar and outside terrace.

We can hold your ceremony here at The Fleece for up to 110 guests for large weddings, but don’t worry; if you are looking for a more intimate day with a smaller guest list we can create the perfect cosy setting for you too.

Do you envisage a more traditional ceremony? No problem, there are 3 different parish churches only a few miles away in Ripponden. We will be here ready to greet you and your guests with Prosecco and mouth watering Canapés upon your arrival as the newly weds.

Please note your ceremony needs to be booked independently via Calderdale Council and their fee is to be paid separately to ours

Don’t believe us? Check out what previous Brides and Grooms have had to say about their wedding with us here at The Fleece.

“From the first meeting with the team at The Fleece we knew we had booked the right venue.
Their attention to detail was fantastic. They worked with all our fussy requirements to make our day as perfect as it could be. The venue is amazing, we are lucky enough to have the same views as we only live next door but the guest from afar were amazed by it. The food was amazing and the service equally as good. The day went perfectly, no hiccups and that was down to the Planners who had everything in hand. I couldn’t recommend The Fleece enough.”
Richard & Rebecca Walker
