Reasons to Get Married in Manchester

Your wedding venue should make a statement about you as a couple. It’s more than just opting for an outdoor wedding, a hotel wedding, a beachfront wedding (and so on). Choosing your wedding venue is also about the location you hold your wedding! If you aren’t planning on jetting off to a tropical country to tie the knot, you have to think carefully about where in the UK you want to get married. Why not consider Manchester?

As cities go, Manchester is a lot like London’s older and cooler sibling. It’s got the size and large population, just as London does, but it’s got that Northern vibe that makes it slightly cooler (as well as the cooler Northern weather). Manchester is famous for giving the UK a range of things, including: indie music, Danny Boyle, feminism (Emmeline Pankhurst was born and raised there), socialism, and canals. Apart from being steeped in culture, Manchester is also home to a heap of gay-friendly wedding venues, making it the perfect place to get married!


Being a huge city, Manchester is well connected, meaning it’s easy to get all your guests to the venue. Flying anyone in from abroad, or just desperate to jet off on your honeymoon? Manchester also has 2 airports, making it easy for fetching your mother-in-law (or escaping from the wedding madness when the day is over!). Due to its city nature, many of the wedding venues are sleek hotels and classy stately homes, but if don’t let that deter you from choosing Manchester if you’ve got your heart set on a countryside wedding. There are also a number of halls and hotels that are based in acres of land in the countryside, so whether you want city or country, there’s something for everyone. In the words of Mancunian icon Ian Brown, “The only thing Manchester hasn’t got is a beach”.

Still unsure of whether Manchester is the right place to tie the knot? Why not browse through our venues, and check out these interesting facts about the county:

  1. Vegetarianism was invented in Manchester. Ironically, in ‘Beefsteak Chapel’, by a man named Reverend William Cowherd. No, we’re not making it up.
  2. Into your books? You’ll be interested to know that Manchester was home to the first free public library.
  3. The first M&S was opened in Manchester! This is not just a Manchester-themed-gay-friendly-wedding-venue-blog, this is an M&S Manchester-themed-gay-friendly-wedding-venue-blog…
  4. Not the most traditional wedding meal, but Manchester is home of the black pudding (contrasting to fact 1…)
