Top 10 Alternative + Unique Wedding Venues in Manchester

There are loads of places to choose from and we decided on what we hope are ten very different and unique wedding venues in Manchester. Here we go, in no particular order…


1. Victoria Baths

Yep, you can get wed in a swimming pool, sans water of course.

2. The Deaf Institute

Oof. If you met at a rock night (like we did) this would be the perfect club venue of dreams.

3. Victoria Warehouse

Super cool modern warehouse vibes. We’ve shot here and it’s a great venue with good food and ambience.

4. Albert Hall Manchester

This place looks awesome. Proper luxury. If you wanna go all out – this is the place for you.

5. The Monastery

We’ve shot a party here and the space is amazing. Proper gothic vibes without being too churchy.

6. Manchester Museum

The website says ‘where else can you get married under the skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus Rex!’ SOLD.

7. Manchester Art Gallery

Light, airy and full of art. Perfection.

8. MSI

A museum that’s cool and modern and would make for ace pictures.

9. The Lowry

Another light and airy venue with amazing views.

10 . All Star Lanes
