Ain't no party like a Ponden Party

Say Goodbye to traditional wedding venues like stately homes and bland hotels and say hello to Ponden Mill, the newest wedding venue in the heart of the Yorkshire Countryside.


Think you're favourite Leeds bar but surrounded my countryside and with plenty of space for glamping with your fam after the party has ended.

Boho Bride


This converted mill is the perfect setting for that Boho Bride seeking a fun filled wedding day with scenic views galore.


Featuring a fully stocked bar, a large open plan reception room and a huge outdoor ceremony space Ponden Mill has got it going on.





Jess is the perfect boho bride, a lover of travel, an ex airline hostess and full time boho babe - she really put the F in the fabulousness of this shoot.


Her Asos jumpsuit captured her free spirit and love of all things wild and worked perfectly with her beachy blonde waves and natural make up by Nala & Knot.





Put a ring on it


Currently Ponden remains an unlicensed venue space which is perfect for your bespoke Wedding ceremony led by a Celebrant, such as me.


Make your love story the focus of your day and celebrate your love.


When it comes to making things official you can choose between the exposed brick wall filled with sparkly fairy lights, or their outdoor woodland retreat, the perfect spot to celebrate that summer romance that progressed to eternal love.

The Vows


I tried to capture Jess and Jack's free spirited nature and love of travel with bespoke vows written by me.

No wifi....Just Love


Outside nestled in the Yorkshire countryside there's a variety of fabulous spaces for your friends and family to enjoy. Glamping spaces, the "shaggin wagon" with it's cosy firepit overlooking the river and of course the honeymoon suite which truly is a rural retreat away from it all.


They also have big plans for more outdoor spaces to keep the party going late into the night.

Those extra special touches


On the day styling was created by the amazing North and Wild who created a monochrome boho winter vibe.

This subtle autumnal bloom for the bride was created by Bizzi Lizzi Flowers and mirrored the oranges, browns and whites of the woodland.

The Team


There is no doubt that Ponden's popularity will only increase as they're already getting full for summer 2022.


Their fantastic team of staff are on hand to help you plan an EPIC celebration and party the night away, Ponden Style.


This fabulous group of suppliers really created something beautiful but Jess & Jack's relationship made the day magical.
