Full Description
We are a completely unique and entirely innovative event space in the heart of Manchester. With exposed walls, stone oors 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. 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. We have four amazing spaces for you to choose from; The Bays, The Archives, The Cellars and The Cotton Sheds - all fully licensed for a civil ceremony. Our next Wedding Fair will be in September, in collaboration with Brides Up North. Stay tuned to our social media pages for more detail to follow! We also welcome external catering for religious and cultural ceremonies and celebrations. Dry Hire for these events starts at £6,000.00 inc. VAT.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

No two weddings are the same but we've seen some pretty amazingly themed weddings right down to an Alice in Wonderland themed wedding and a Harry Potter wedding.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Research. We would recommend that all our couples take the time out to research thoroughly from the venues to the vendors and suppliers, right down to the littlest details. Double check the prices for everything and get clear confirmation of the arrangements they are making rather than assuming an arrangement has been made.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

The human touch. Some of the weddings we've seen have really told the journey of the couple and have been quite intimate. That humanistic approach really made us savour the day as it was and the story being told through couple.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

We have a variety of favoured spots here at the warehouse from the photos taken at the front of the warehouse, the special moment on the aisle in The Bays. But our current favourite would be the pictures taken at the back of the warehouse by the canal.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We have welcomed the likes of Alan Carr, Melanie C and Tim Minchin.

What’s your favourite canapé?

Our Compressed Melon with Mojito Syrup is pretty special!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Loaded Fries Station with a variety of toppings including; beef chilli, pulled pork and vegetable chilli. Served with a variety of sauces.
