This venue is perfect for weddings
Venue Service

By Jonathan & Carol, on 17 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 10 Nov 2018

We first booked our wedding here in March for a ceremony in November. Lucy the Senior Events coordinator was fantastic - making sure that all our questions were answered (and answering some we didn’t realise we needed to ask!). The event managers on the day were all amazing and made our day run so smoothly. The venue itself is perfect for weddings, such a quirky and fun space with well equipped function rooms and private bars. The compass room is very romantic, with an impressive view out to the lights of Media City. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the venue and the staff.

We had such an amazing wedding at The Lowry

We can't thank the Event Coordinator, Lucy, and everybody else (Event Duty Managers, Chefs, etc) at the Lowry enough for their help with our wedding on 15th September 2018. Everything was so well organised and every single person made sure everything went smoothly and according to plan. We didn't have to worry about anything as we knew the staff had everything under control. The Lowry were so accommodating and no request that we had was too big, even the last minute changes! Lucy was a big, big help in the run up to our wedding and she communicated so well to ensure our wedding was everything we wanted it to be. We got married in The Compass Room which is a lovely room overlooking the Salford Quays; the views are just amazing and our guests loved it. The guests loved the canapes too!! I can't thank Lucy & the chef enough who went out of their way to look into the ingredients of every single item of food we ordered to ensure they did not contain any nuts due to my nephew's severe nut allergy. We had such an amazing wedding at The Lowry and a big part of this was down to the amazing staff!!

We booked the compass room for our wedding reception in June this year. The venue itself suited us perfectly & after meeting with Lucy the events coordinator, we had our heart set on having our reception here. Lucy looked after us right from the off and kept in close contact right up to our wedding day. The venue itself is fantastic and so many of our guests commented on how amazing it was! Even some of the suppliers we used commented on how lovely it is. From the compass room, the views are stunning! Both day & night with an almost 360 view across the quays, you have to see it to believe it. On the day the venue was clearly sign posted so that guests could navigate around with ease, which also made it easy for our evening guests to locate the compass room. The staff were absolutely fantastic & the attention to detail was spot on. Wedding breakfast meals were all cooked in house by the chefs & tasted lovely (there is a great choice of food). The surroundings of the building offer opportunities for really great photographs with some beautiful backdrops. Overall, both myself and my wife could not have had a more perfect day! We are both so happy that we chose the Lowry for our special day. If you are looking for a modern, bright & spectacular wedding venue we strongly recommend you go and visit the Lowry, meet Lucy & have a look around. Thanks again to Lucy & the event duty managers! (30th June 2018).

Perfect wedding day at amazing venue!

By Mark & Aryan, on 16 May 2018Date of Wedding - 14 Apr 2018

We had our wedding breakfast and reception in the Compass Room of The Lowry. The run up to the wedding went without a hitch, Lucy was great and was always there to answer any questions and did her best to cater for any special requests we had. When we arrived on the day and looked at the room, the staff had set everything up perfectly - exactly how I'd pictured it in my head. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was great. Luckily, we had the most amazing sunny day for the wedding so as well as the room looking lovely and bright, we were able to make full use of the balcony which has amazing views of the quays. As the darkness came, the fairy lights came on which look beautiful and really were one of the reasons we chose the venue. The staff, food, service and venue were spot on and we're so happy we chose The Lowry for our wedding - I wish we could do it all over again!

We cannot recommend this venue enough!

By Emma & Nick, on 16 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 06 Apr 2018

Over two years ago we visited The Lowry and was shown around all of the wonderful spaces that it has to offer, each room offers something different. We chose to have our welcome drinks in the Pier Eight room, lovely views and easily accessible for our less able guests. Followed by the Compass Room, this is at the very top of The Lowry. It is an amazing room that offers AMAZING views, balcony, beautiful room and fairy lights to top it off! From the very first interaction with Lucy and the team at a wedding fair to weeks after the wedding, it has been a pleasure. Most people who have been married speak of how stressful it can be. However, dealing with The Lowry and all its staff has been nothing but easy! Each and every query, problem and need was dealt with quickly! It made the run up to our big day super stress free! Our wedding day was everything we wanted and so much more! The rooms were perfect, drinks and food were great, staff were wonderful and our day ran PERFECTLY!!! Thank you so much to each and every person at The Lowry who made our day so special and a huge thank you to Lucy our Special Events Coordinator who helped, supported and pointed us in the right direction over the past two years!

All I can say is Wow!
Venue Service

By Emily & Anthony, on 16 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Dec 2017

From walking into The Lowry after visiting many local venues, we were greeted by Lucy Markey who showed us round each aspect of the venue and from walking into the compass room for our reception, all I can say is Wow! What a room! It’s absolutely amazing and if your from salford it’s perfect! No matter what time of year, this venue would be stunning. We received so many compliments and still are getting them from the venue to how friendly the staff were to the food. Everything went smoothly! Lucy and all of the staff did an amazing job from bringing the stuff in for the wedding to the actual day. Lucy is amazing. She has answered every question and makes you feel at ease throughout the whole process. We had a few people drop out on the actual day, but we was able to fill our seats and even this wasn’t a problem. We had our wedding on a evening where there was a show on, and even this wasn’t a problem. A band wasn’t able to come on until 10 but you were able to have a DJ with the music being slightly lowered. This didn’t cause a problem as guests were able to hear themselves talk, and by 10pm everybody was ready to have a good time! I wouldn’t change anything about my wedding, it was perfect! Thanks!!

From the second we stepped into 'The Lowry,' we were welcomed with a smile and a cup of tea from Lucy Markey. She was so lovely and personal and did everything she could to make us happy, finding out what we wanted from the venue. Then she showed us around the venue and we were blown away. Especially when Lucy turned on the lights in the compass room. It was stunning with an amazing panoramic view. We knew it was the one. From that moment on, Lucy answered countless questions and emails efficiently and always encouraged us to ask her about anything. She was so willing to help!! She was informative and helpful and did everything she could to help give us our perfect wedding. We were able to go to the restaurant to food taste as well. On the day itself, the Lowry were flawless. The food was incredible, the Lowry looked phenomenal and our guests were taken care of. We were greeted with a smiling, helpful team from the Lowry who's aim was to be the best the could be. And they were. We have had countless compliments about the venue and food and have been told it was the best wedding they've been to. I would like to say thank you for Lucy and the rest of the team for making our day so special. You were perfection. I would recommend the Lowry a million times over.

Such a special day

We held our wedding (ceremony and reception) at the Lowry on 28 October. The venue is simply stunning, especially the compass room at the top where we held our reception. Lucy (our events planner) was amazing all the way through- knowledgeable, accommodating and always helpful. A real godsend especially as the day, and nerves, draws nearer. The staff on the day were also brilliant - again. always friendly, and organised. We can't thank them enough for making it such a special day. We have also had amazing feedback from so many guests who all had a great day - many stating it is the best wedding they had ever been too.

By Mike & Jenny, on 16 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 14 Oct 2017

The room looked amazing when we walked in and the event managers helped make sure everything ran smoothly. Nothing was too much to ask and even when we had left the thank you cards at the other venue, some of the staff ran over and picked them up! The whole thing was just perfect.
