Congratulations on your engagement! Are you looking for something a little different for your wedding venue?

The Hall was designed by Paul Waterhouse and named after Mancunian industrialist, Sir Joseph Whitworth, who bequeathed much of his fortune to fund public developments in Manchester. The hall is Grade II listed and today forms the back drop of the University’s graduation ceremonies and key ceremonial events.

Venue Service

By Lindsay Davy, on 05 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 30 Jul 2016

Hello, As the wife of a photographer I attend many weddings and am sad to say that the guests are often made to feel like an inconvenience. On Saturday 30th July we had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of some close friends of ours, Paul and Michelle Vicario, at the Whitworth Hall. Attending as a guest with our five week old daughter whilst my husband was working, I was apprehensive about a long day with a tiny baby however I needn't have worried. From the minute we arrived your staff could not have been more helpful or accommodating. Each person I met asked whether I had been shown the changing facilities and on both occasions when I was feeding in the Christie's Bistro I was asked whether I needed anything and brought drinks. I have never attended a wedding where I felt more looked after and waited on and I wanted to let you know how much it was appreciated. I know Paul and Michelle had a wonderful day and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all in attendance. Please keep up the good work and accept and pass on to your staff my grateful thanks for all your help and attention on the day. Yours sincerely Lindsay Davy

A massive thank you...
