The perfect Wedding Venue
We found Whitworth Hall by accident. I was actually looking for another venue on line and the University of Manchester link came up. We fell in love with the neo-gothic Hall and the old science library that is now Christie’s Bistro, straight away. Rebecca and Adam made the planning experience so easy, enjoyable and uncomplicated which lead to the most perfect wedding day. We had an August wedding and it poured down with rain….. But it didn’t matter one bit. The Hall was so spacious and there was plenty of room downstairs to wander without needing to be outside. We got the whole place to ourselves – the ceremony and breakfast was in the hall and we had the reception in Christie’s Bistro next door which was open all day and night for us. All our guests were so complementary of the venue, it is in such a convenient location with a variety of accommodation and train stations within a mile of the hall. Yet, for the whole day, it felt secluded, quiet and ‘ours’. The breakfast was delicious and the wine was incredible (We had many grateful comments regarding the wine!) We can’t thank the staff enough for the most incredible of wedding days. What a perfect venue, what kind, generous staff and what a location. I would recommend it to anyone who loves a relaxed feel yet enjoys architecture, books, history and fancies a little bit of ‘wow factor’ on their day. Thank you all who were involved, Lou and MikeSent on 19/11/2019
