About

About This Venue

Welcome to Victoria Warehouse, we are a completely unique and entirely innovative space right in the heart of Manchester. With exposed walls, stone doors and a raw urban backdrop; the simplicity of our venue provides a stunning setting for your wedding day.

Built in the early 1900s as predominantly a cotton storage facility, our warehouse buildings have stood as a symbol of this city's industrial strength and innovation for around 100 years. Since then, careful renovations have made it a venue to capture the imagination and create a surprisingly romantic backdrop for many couples.

You can have as little or as much room as you need with our adaptable spaces. We have a total of five rooms licensed for a civil ceremony, and we work closely with Trafford Council who arrange the time slots for your big day. Our recommended suppliers can dress the rooms however you wish; we’ve delivered some amazing concepts over the years, from blossom trees to teardrop lights suspended from pillars and ceilings.

Here at Victoria Warehouse we realise every wedding is unique, and whether you plan a traditional format to the day or a more personal celebration; our dedicated wedding team will work closely with you to ensure your special day runs to perfection.

The Bays

Our Bays are a widely popular wedding space and are made up of two adjoining rooms totalling over 700sqm. Built in 1932 for cotton stock, and later storage for Kelloggs, Mcvities and Cadburys; their rich history and interesting architecture makes them ideal for weddings and events.

With a large pre-function space complete with your very own private bar adjoining onto the main room which comes equipped with the full AV package. From screens and projectors, colour-changing lights on the pillars to a PA system, staging, lecterns, microphones and relay screens it really allows for a hassle-free event solution on your special day.

  • Capacity of up to 300 guests for a wedding ceremony.
  • Capacity of up to 260 guests for dining.
  • Size of The Bays Room 1 - 21.4m x 12.1m.
  • Size of The Bays Room 2 - 20.7m x 23m.

The Cotton Sheds

For larger weddings we offer our Cotton Sheds, draped head to toe in industrial aesthetic and used to host huge events from concerts to weddings. Built in 1925 as a cotton warehouse, they are our largest and most dramatic event space with the capacity and versatility to accommodate all of your biggest wedding goals and ambitions.

With Shed A being our main function space, it features its own private bar, mezzanine area and a huge floorspace perfect for hosting your reception and entertainment.

    Perfect choice

    Our wedding at Victoria Warehouse was brilliant - from planning to tasting and the day itself, all ran smoothly. Planning with Eve was stress-free, no new request/change went unanswered by her and there was a genuine vibe of "nothing is too much trouble - it's *your* wedding". On the day, Tom managed the wedding down to the last detail, friendly, professional and unflappable. All the staff throughout were great, the food and wine were great - and the venue is just stunning. So many guests said it was the best venue they had ever been to for a wedding - and we agree!

    "Thanks so much for your congratulations - we had the best time! Just wanted to say a huge big thank you to your team, too - especially you and Maureen - for all of your help. The day went so smoothly and we honestly couldn't have asked for better - so many little things were taken care of that I didn't even notice until afterwards (buckets for the sparklers, lights being dimmed during the first dance, etc) and it just made for a really stress-free, enjoyable day. The food was also fantastic - even better than at the tasting - and we still have guests telling us how great the gravy in particular was!"

    I just wanted to say how amazing our day was, all staff went above and beyond and made our day so so special. The food was amazing and nearly every guest praised the catering, which as you know is pretty rare at a wedding. The manager of the day was lovely and I really couldn't have asked for more. Thanks so so much for helping with the day of my dreams.

    Incredible Venue..

    Victoria Warehouse was the first and only venue we viewed for our wedding back in December 2015 and we loved it instantly.
    We were after something different, a blank canvas that we could work with, without having to do absolutely everything ourselves.
    On the day so many guests commented on how relaxed the atmosphere was and this was in no doubt down to the team working on the evening. Nina, David and all the waiting on staff were excellent and kitchen team did a great job with the food. Considering one half of us is a chef/restaurant owner, our particularly high standards were certainly met by VW!
    Thanks VW for such a fun and memorable day. The venue looked incredible, everything went to plan, and we are so so glad we opted for a warehouse wedding!

    Amazing Day, Fantastic Venue

    We were overly satisfied with the service we received for our wedding and we would recommend this unconventional venue to any couple wishing to book.
    The whole day ran extremely smoothly and this was testament to the planning and professionalism of the Warehouse team. We had several meetings prior to the wedding to go over the finer details of the day and our plans were interpreted and executed perfectly.
    We were really fortunate to hear about the Victoria Warehouse as if we hadn’t, our wedding day may have not been exactly as we had imagined it. Fantastic venue, lovely staff and an unforgettable day!

    Amazing Day

    We started confidently, pretty sure we could handle the planning and execution of the wedding ourselves. It quickly became apparent at our planning meetings that we had a lot to do and a lot of decisions to make, and it’s safe to say that we would not have made it without the help of Nina. Each planning meeting was well organised and effective, and the advice on offer was wonderful.

    Despite there being three live bands, a DJ, 130 guests and torrential rain all day we could not have asked for more from the venue and their team. They helped execute our plans seamlessly, made the right calls rather than disturb us and generally made sure everyone had as much fun as possible – which was exactly what we wanted. Nina even hand wrote our table plan on a chalk board the night before, which it is fair to say is above and beyond the call of duty!

    The food and room decoration were incredible, and the staff on duty could not have done more for the guests. If you want a really different venue, with great staff and wonderful food don’t hesitate.
