Situated along Manchester’s traditional shipping canal, The Lowry is a unique wedding venue in Salford in the North West of England. This waterfront venue is home to a not-for-profit theatre and event space that champions the performing arts. The dedicated team welcomes to-be-weds looking to celebrate their day against the backdrop of a thriving creative centre. Here, contemporary architecture and artistic accents blend with traditional elements, and all three function rooms offer panoramic views of Salford Quays and the famous MediaCityUK buildings.
Facilities and Capacity
Couples seeking a memorable destination for their wedding day will appreciate this world-class arts centre.

Circular in shape with lofty ceilings, full-length windows, and muted, modern decor, this is a splendid place in which to throw a party to remember.
The dedicated team at The Lowry strives to make each and every event unique and unforgettable. The in-house coordinator will collaborate and learn about your vision and personal tastes.

Best wedding ever
We celebrated our wedding in the Lowry Theatre. Myself and my partner could not recommend the venue and the staff enough.Sent on 23/07/2019
The Compass room provides a lovely environment in the day turning into spectacular views in the evening. It is a unique place in the heart of Greater Manchester, the fact it has catering on site means the food quality is amazing, and the bar staff kept the drinks flowing.

We had the best day
Thank you so much for helping to organise our wedding. We had the best day and the staff were absolutely amazing! Everything seemed seamless and nothing was too much trouble. I had so many comments from my friends and family on the quality of service and also how nice the food was! Tracey was amazing and unfortunately I don’t remember the names of the DMs in the evening, or the amazing bar staff, but they were also spot on! I cannot express enough how happy we both were with the venue and the whole day.Sent on 07/05/2019

Amazing venue for an amazing day
We got married here a few weeks ago and still on a high from how wonderful our day at The Lowry was. The venue is amazing - the views from the Compass Room are beautiful and even more better at sunset and then night time with all the lights. Food was great, staff were fabulous. Lucy did a great job of organising and the event staff on the day were top as well (especially Victoria and Grecia). We found this venue to be very cost effective in comparison to some of other Manchester venues we looked at. Would 100% recommend.Sent on 27/05/2019
