About The Workshop & Loft

In the Autumn of 2014 we opened a tiny flower shop on the ground floor of a beautiful Victorian building. The shop had been a florists for over 40 years. It was a little tired so we stocked it full of plants, fresh flowers and beautiful finds for the home and gave it a new heart beat. 

We quickly grew out of the space and took on a small store room on the 1st floor above the shop. Little by little we took on the rest of the floor, stripped out all the sad 80s decor, revealed some of the Victorian features and breathed new life back into the rooms. We used The Workshop at peak times as our work space and throughout the year we would dress the mantel with seasonal foliage and blooms and host candle lit Christmas wreath making Workshops (We still do). 

We hosted launch parties and corporate parties and smiled as we watched people relax into the space, enjoy the atmosphere and we struggled to get them to leave. When one of our guests said she’d like to get married in The Workshop and knowing there was a demand for intimate weddings, we’d just created flowers for a wedding in the tiniest venue ever, we decided to take on the top floor at number 1 King Street and give the wedding and events biz a go. 

We no longer have the flower shop but now you can get married, drink, dine, dance and have all your flowery dreams come true under 1 historic roof. We may not look much from the outside but its what’s inside that counts and we’ve created a cozy atmosphere to indulge in making time for friends and family. 

Stripped-back yet full of character, it is the perfect place for couples looking for an “un-weddingy” wedding venue. 

Really, you won’t want to leave.

First Floor

The Workshop & The Green Room

High ceilings, stripped floor boards, whitewashed walls and warm natural light through the day, The Workshop is a beautiful honest room. Mismatched wooden chairs add to the rustic vibe while flashes of vintage velvet add a touch of glamour. 

Gather up to 50 of your friends and family ones and say your vows in front of the mantel which will be dramatically dressed in seasonal flowers and foliage.

 The atmosphere is incredible when this intimate space is full of love. For parties and evening reception we create small clusters of hard and soft seating, providing the perfect environment to sit with a drink, chat and listen to the music. When the sun goes down, we light candles and the Workshop takes on an enchanting ambience. 

The Green Room is elegant and whimsical and has the feel of a gents club. It’s perfect for post-ceremony drinks and offers a quiet place to sit and chat away from the hubbub.

Second Floor

The Loft

The Loft offers beautiful views over Mirfield. It has exposed brick walls, painted floorboards and a rustic bar that is stocked with carefully curated wines, gins and cocktails.

Natural light floods in through the day and in the evening we turn on the lamps, light the candles to create a cocooning, relaxed environment.

 50 people can enjoy seated dining, and we can accommodate 120 people for a casual dining reception and evening party.
