Your Industrial Wedding

published on:

For that special day

There’s no denying that locations with industrial flavor are in style.That’s not the only reason Hävemeier & Sander Hall is so popular though. Weddings with an industrial aesthetic offer the perfect blend of glamor and minimalism and allow you to unleash your creativity to its fullest. The only thing more special than the venue itself are the happy couples who have chosen it for their receptions: modern, cool, and environmentally conscious.

Hävemeier & Sander Hall

Hävemeier & Sander Hall is a factory from the late 19th century that we’ve transformed into an incredible entertainment venue.Over 3,500 sq. ft. of floorspace welcome you to come and celebrate.

The former workshop combines the industrial charm of bygone times with elements of modern style and state-of-the-art event technology. The hall’s 30-foot-hight ceilings and equally long factory windows, its spacious gallery, and its tasteful parquet flooring deliver a one-of-a-kind setting for special events of all kinds.

Elaborately optimized acoustics and a high-performance Kling & Freitag speaker system round out the amenities portfolio of this impressive and versatile venue.

Hävemeier & Sander Hall has direct access to the Foyer. The two complement each other perfectly and are great to book together if you need extra space for a buffet, for example. The two spaces are linked by a caringly-greened courtyard, giving you even more options—weather permitting, of course.

Unconventional and Unconstrained

As the world recovers from a global pandemic, established customs and cultural norms continue to be turned on their heads. The Werkhof has always been a little bit different. What moments like this manifest for everyone is something we have always considered evident: Long-established traditions are important to preserve but they also need to be reinvigorated and adapted to a changing world.

Wedding receptions are no exception. Bridal couples who choose to celebrate at the Werkhof often have styles that you might call a little peculiar. Some peoples’ lives are built around music, for example. One groom—who was a student at the University of Music, Drama and Media (HMTMH)—invited his entire ensemble to perform. Together, they put on a show that almost brought the house down.

Other bridal couples are foodies who put a premium on treating their guests to wedding buffets full of unusual and eclectic flavors. We only source fish and meat that has valid origin labeling and endeavor to use local products anywhere we can. We’ve hosted weddings where the catering was entirely vegetarian. One of those receptions included a number of guests who wereactually hunters. And even they loved our meatless fare.

We once had a bride and groom who were adamant about bringing their own chairs. Every piece of furniture they brought came from an antique shop but no two of them looked alike. When the guests arrived, they were all wearing outfits from different 20th-century styles. They themselves were anything but old-fashioned, however.

We've been blessed to host couples with unique personalities who want wedding receptions that reflect their individuality. “Anything goes” seems to be a common theme. And if that’s the motto, you can’t choose a better setting for your wedding. Hannover’s Nordstadt district is more than just the university quarter and the home of the Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen and their stately surroundings. It’s also beloved for being cool, eccentric, vibrant, and casual.

Everything Under One Roof

With its incredible versatility and prime central location, there’s no event space in Hannover like the Werkhof. A great example is Hävemeier & Sander Hall, home to the three-star-superior-rated Werkhof Hotel with its 39 rooms as well as to the Werkhof restaurant with its popular cuisine and first-class service.

We’re certain that by the time you hear our proposal, you’ll be ready to say “YES”. To handle planning, organizing, and managing the celebration, we’ll pair you with a professional event manager, dedicated wholly to making sure that your wedding day is the greatest day of your life.

We can also help you pick out table decorations or recommend a DJ, if you would like. If you’d prefer to take care of everything yourself, no problem. Except for the catering—we always handle that. After all, you want to want to eat and drink in style!That’s what we’re here for.

Typically, bridal couples like to kick off their party in the courtyard by welcoming guests with a glass or two of sparkling champagne. We’re there serving delicious hors d’oeuvres to tide everyone over until it’s time for the banquet. The bride and groom usually take this time to say a few words. And we start serving appetizers shortly thereafter.

Two hours later, our team is hustling to clear the buffet. Turn the lights down and the music up. It’s time to get the party started!
