A perfect partnership between elegant dressing and an industrial heritage, our Main Hall space is an inspiring and flexible venue that can cater for a range of events including weddings and seated dinners. 

Our Main Hall can host up to 200 guests and can even be extended into our champagne reception area for additional seating or a dance floor. As well as the main hall, we have multiple rooms available to use just for a variety of activities that have included photo booths, kids rooms, gin tasting and cake displays. Our entire hall is bordered by our white drapes creating a marque feel that can also be used to cut the space in half for more intimate events.

A hidden gem located between Northenden and Gatley and easily accessed from anywhere in Cheshire, Lancashire or Greater Manchester. We also offer free parking for well over 100 cars and are within walking distance of a wealth of local parks and areas of woodland perfect for photo opportunities before your reception.

We are a new concept in socially responsible business, with an ethos unlike any other wedding venue. We’re part of a multi-award winning international charity that is committed to working with former prisoners and drug addicts. Through our certified training courses, we’re seeing lives turned around by helping people who were once part of the problem become part of the solution. All proceeds from your wedding are re-invested into our charity and help us continue to do what we do.

We’ve been hosting couples on their most special day since 2013. Every member of staff you’ll work with is fully qualified and brings a wealth of events, catering and hospitality experience. We’re passionate about going above and beyond to give you and your guests an unforgettable experience and strive to take away the stress out of your day, allowing you to focus on enjoying the moment with your friends and family.

We have our own in house catering team to ensure the highest levels of quality and consistency are upheld at every event. As a result, we are able to offer a variety of great value packages to tailor any style of wedding. Please request to view our brochure to see what’s involved and our prices.

Cannot recommend it highly enough!
Venue Service

By Julia & Stephen Patterson, on 15 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 30 Nov 2019

We had our wedding reception here and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff were friendly and helpful throughout the lead up to the wedding, and exceptionally helpful on the day itself, nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious and all of our guests gave wonderful feedback.

Everything to plan

Definitely Reccomend
Venue Service

By Wynne and Jung, on 12 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Jul 2018

We absolutely have no regrets having our wedding reception at the Message Enterprise Centre. Sam and everyone we spoke to were professional and went the extra mile to make sure our reception ran smoothly. I particularly appreciated the kids-friendly breakout room. Weddings can be a little dull for kids but we had a separate room where they could watch cartoons and do crafts and colouring. Everyone had a great time and I cannot thank the Message more for their wonderful effort for our wedding! I would definitely recommend weddings and other events here at the Message. You can expect top class service!

My daughter and son in- law recently held their wedding reception at The MEC. It was a fabulous day. The staff were attentive and made us feel very welcome and the food was excellent. This is a big thank from the father of bride for helping to make this such happy and memorable day.

Fantastic Job!

Paul and I would like to extend our deepest gratitude to everyone at the Message Enterprise Centre for making our wedding reception a truly wonderful occasion. The venue was simply breath-taking and the attention to detail impeccable. Many of our guests have since commented on the professional, friendly service of the MEC staff, as well as the excellent quality of the food. From the moment we decided to book the MEC as our wedding venue, we were impressed by the efficient and flexible service we received. Thank you once again to the team.

Even five stars doesn’t do it justice. The team were amazing at helping bring the event together. The catering was exactly to our requirements and we’ve had nothing but great feedback from our guests. Everybody loved it, thank you all so much.
