    Best Wedding Venue in Manchester

    Couldn't fault the Castlefield Rooms at all! They are the number 1 wedding venue I've been to in Manchester and I'm not just saying that because our wedding was there! Their prices and packages are extremely fair and are adjustable by person rather than most place where you have to have a certain number which we liked. We had the bottom package (silver I think) and it was more generous than most weddings I have been too which many of the guests commented on. The food was INCREDIBLE. So many of my friends still go on about it. I had the risotto over the meat option because it was so amazing. Helen was spectacular throughout the process and we felt that the staff cared for our wedding reception rather than just getting on with their shift. The two ladies who ran the event on the night (I'm so sorry I can't remember your names!) were incredible and all the staff were so approachable nothing was too much to ask. The attention to detail was amazing, they checked everything with us. It really is a bespoke venue and anywhere that manages to make a horribly rainy day in February look amazing must be a winner (the fairy light wall is a must!). The florist the CR work with (Frog) were amazing also and so professional. The guests felt looked after and had an incredible time. I really want my friends to have a wedding their next so we can go again! Thank you so much to all of the staff, you made our day amazing!

    Wedding June 2017

    Absolutely faultless day!

    The packages are so worth the money as you just let your coordinator know what you want and they do the rest, right down to setting up the room prior to your arrival for the ceremony and invite you to view the room before filling it with your guests.

    I didn't have to do anything on the day (except enjoy myself) as was all communicated brilliantly via email and phone. We were so well looked after and all of our guests had a fabulous day. They loved the food, the atmosphere and were all very impressed with the liquors that came with the after dinner tea & coffee!
    If I could do it all again, I would. Would i change anything about the day? Absolutely not.
    The whole experience with The Castlefield Rooms was outstanding. Fantastic food, amazing location and brilliant attentive staff.

    Absolutely wonderful from start to finish

    All the staff who worked on our wedding were absolutely above and beyond amazing. Every guest we've spoken too have said hands down the best food they'd ever had at a wedding. The whole day ran smoother than any wedding I've been to which is down to the professionalism and efficiently of everyone working that night.

    We can't thank all the staff enough, they made our special day so much more special. Nothing was too much trouble, the rooms looked beautiful, and we didn't have to worry about a thing other than just having a lovely day.

    If you're still undecided on a venue then don't hesitate to book here. If we were to do it all over again we'd pick Castlefield Rooms every time.

    Lisa our coordinator was incredibly approachable

    The team at the Castlefield Rooms strived to support us with our vision for our wedding day from the very start. There was so much information provided to give us an idea of how our day could pan out and no question was too big or small.

    Lisa our wedding coordinator was incredibly approachable and friendly and a real credit to the Castlefield Rooms.

    It was also brilliant that their preferred suppliers were there if we needed them (and we booked the wonderful DJ, Michael Spencer – Highly recommended!) but they were certainly not forced upon us in any way. We loved the flexibility that having our day at the Castlefield Rooms gave us.

    I also valued the Castlefield Rooms social media presence; it was great to see photos on Instagram of weddings and other events prior to our wedding as it helped us visualise how our own day would look and feel.

    On our wedding day, it was comforting to see Lisa and the team as we arrived and it was very apparent that everything was running like clockwork. The Brindley Room where our ceremony was held is a beautiful room with the exposed beams and large windows, the perfect setting for a wedding. We had the buffet and evening reception in the Merchant Room where the views over the locks are lovely and the room is so airy and light. Lisa and the team decorated the rooms beautifully, really bringing to life what we had been picturing these past 12 months. The team were unobvious yet present throughout the day which was perfect.

    Making our wedding a huge success

    We just wanted to say thank you to you and all the Castlefield rooms team for making our wedding a huge success. We had the day of our lives.

    All of our family and friends were well looked after and all said what a great place it was to celebrate our wedding. The room was decorated beautifully and the food was amazing.

    You kept the drinks flowing all night and dealt with any niggles quickly and professionally.

    Dukes 92 has a special place in our hearts anyway as we had our first date there as well as celebrating other occasions with friends. We can now add our wedding to that too.

    Thanks again. You worked so hard and made our day wonderful.

    We cannot thank you enough!

    We just wanted to email (very delayed) to say thank you so much to you and all the staff that worked on the day of our wedding.

    I want to thank you for all the emails, planning, attention to detail in the run up to the wedding making it as least stressy for me as possible. The day itself was perfect and we can't thank you enough!

    The room looked beautiful and the food was delicious especially the orange couscous thing- i want to make that!

    We had so many compliments on the venue and how tasty the food was and just the whole thing my brother in-law loved it so much that he wants to get married there too- they actually got engaged that night!

    We think you all did a fab job!

    Me and my new husband are loving married life. We loved every minute from planning the wedding right up to the end of the night of the wedding.

    We think you all did a fab job. Couldn't fault any of it. Karen and Jennifer was so good and you were great with me and mark had patience answering all my questions.

    Thank you so much all our guests loved the venue and food was delicious!

    Wedding 30th Aug - absolutely fantastic

    We got married at The Castlefield Rooms on Sunday and I can't thank and praise the whole team enough. Before the big day Helen and Lisa were so helpful and organised I was really confident in all the planning. But I was still amazed by how fantastic the team were on the big day. Everyone without exception has commented on the delicious food, lots of guests said it was the best wedding meal they'd ever had. The other comments were about the exceptional personal service the staff gave. So a huge thanks to Lisa, Helen, Sophie, Chloe, Jennifer, Mario, Charlie and all the team. Also want to say what a fantastic venue it is, everyone thought it was beautiful.

    Felt in safe hands leading up to the day

    We had a wonderful time on Saturday, and thought everything went very well.
    The venue was a big hit and everyone had a great time. Guests told us that they really liked moving between the different rooms and being outside for a while as well, so we're glad we went for the gallery bar in the end, especially being so lucky with the weather!
    The food was delicious, and we had a lot of very enthusiastic comments about it (especially the chicken), so please pass that feedback on to the chef and kitchen staff for us.

    We both want to say a very big thank you to you and Sophie and the rest of the staff for all your hard work to ensure it ran so smoothly - we had felt very sure that we were in safe hands leading up to the day, and it proved to be the case!

    We could not recommend you guys highly enough!

    David and I wanted to say a massive thank you for making our big day as special as it was! It was absolutely everything we could have imagined and got completely side tracked on the day from individually thanking all those involved so please pass on our heartfelt thanks!

    The organisation and professionalism of the events team was amazing and nothing was ever too much trouble right from day one. Every niggling query was responded to so promptly and we were never made to feel like our questions were trivial or that we were pestering, although I'm sure that we were haha!

    Thank you also for recommending some fantastic suppliers (Jonny Ross Music and Frog Flowers), we found reliable, experienced and friendly suppliers really took any stress out of wedding planning.

    The team that put the room together did an amazing job - it looked absolutely stunning and the attention to detail was great, even doing a quick table rearrangement the day before! We couldn't believe on the day how everything ran completely like clockwork, it was completely stress free and we were able to really enjoy it with no worries at all.

    We would also like to thank your talented chefs and kitchen team. So many of our guests commented that it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding!!! It went down fantastically and we have heard a tremendous amount of praise for it.

    We have always enjoyed drinks and bar snacks at Dukes and meals out at Albert's, however Castlefield Rooms really surpassed our expectations on the day - we couldn't recommend you guys highly enough!
