Wakefield Wedding

Wakefield has been settled since Roman times, and is one of the largest cities in the UK. It tends to be less well known outside of the area though because of its larger neighbours Leeds and Bradford. It first earned its living as a market town, the River Calder providing good communications to the wider area. Later industry sprang up with coal mines and traditional manufacturing. When that faded, regeneration was needed and is still underway as the area develops as a transport and services hub. Wakefield’s beautiful cathedral is a lovely background for any event, and the surrounding countryside is stunning.
