Our Wedding
Venue Service

By Charlotte Preston, on 05 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 30 Nov 2017

We had a small wedding breakfast hosted in Committee Room 3 (not a romantic name, but the room was the Mayor’s Private Dining Room). Us & our 15 guests were so well looked after. The food & wine was outstanding and it was a delicious, beautifully presented meal. All of our guests have commented on how wonderful everything was, from a brief tour of the building to the wood-panelled opulence of the dining room. Luke (part of the Town Hall events team) oversaw the event and just made our afternoon perfect. Costs were very reasonable and we felt we were looked after in a fair and reasonable way (so many places hear the “wedding” word and go crazy on pricing). The menu & wines were so well thought out and considered. What an amazing setting for a wonderful day. Thank you so much. From us both. J & S

Our wonderful Indian wedding
Venue Service

By Sarah Mistry, on 02 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 15 Sep 2017

We had our Indian wedding at Rochdale Town Hall and, even though we do say so ourselves, it was fabulous from start to finish. The venue is absolutely stunning and we have some beautiful wedding photographs as a result. You can use any of the rooms so you can really make the building work for your day whether you have 25 guests or 250. Luke Settle at the Town Hall was incredibly helpful in the run up to our wedding day - arranging extra meetings at the Town Hall (both with us and also just with our suppliers!) to make sure everything was in place to run smoothly on the day. And it really did (which is unheard of for an Indian wedding!). If you are even a little bit curious about whether the venue is right for you - go and see it and speak to Luke. You won’t appreciate how lovely it is until you are there.

Thank you so much!

Our wedding 23/06/17 was absolutely perfect! From start to finish Luke couldn't have been more helpful, he has the patience of a saint, answered all of my questions, responded to random emails & really put my mind at ease. The food and service was excellent, the bar staff were great & there was a good selection of drinks too. The building is amazing and the rooms were dressed beautifully! I would also like to mention Alan the toastmaster who was so lovely & put a smile on everyone's faces. Thank you so much to everyone who worked so hard to make our day so special. We can't thank you enough, love Morgan & Chris xxxxx
