HAPPY couples planning their weddings in Sheffield can now take the plunge – quite literally – by exchanging vows at Ponds Forge.

The city sports centre has been granted a marriage licence, meaning civil ceremonies and partnerships can be held there.

The venue has been hosting wedding parties and civil partnership celebrations in its Skyline Suite for years but the new development means couples can now tie the knot there too.

The Skyline Suite can seat up to 120 wedding guests and hold banquets for up to 250.

Sue Matthews, events coordinator at Ponds Forge, said: “Wedding and civil partnership parties have proved extremely successful at Ponds Forge, so it was a natural progression for us to offer ceremonies as well.”
