Full Description
  • Your ceremony is held within a gallery, with you and your guests surrouded by priceless works of art - and what better setting can there be for the momentous exchanging of vows? You'll be able to take advantage of other spaces too all suited to your individual style and taste. Our Events Team can help with suggestions on room dressing, picking suppliers and ensuring your wedding has a personal touch. Just like our exceptional exhibitions, no two Manchester Art Gallery weddings are ever the same. Our kitchens are on site and everything is freshly made and locally sourced. Mary-Ellen McTague our award winning chef will help you create your own bespoke menu or choose from our range of three course dinners or buffet options. If you'd like to arrange a viewing then please do not hesitate to contact us, and we'll be happy to help make your wedding day unique and hassle free.
