Our University wins North West Wedding Venue of the Year

Wedding at Manchester Museum

Our Hospitality team won best Wedding Venue of the Year at the North West Wedding Awards last week, after being voted for the accolade by the various couples whose wedding the team helped deliver this summer. The award winners were announced on Thursday, 21 October.

Run by County Brides Magazine, the awards aim to recognise various suppliers in the wedding industry from across the North West who support couples with plans for their special day.

The Hospitality team deliver weddings across our University’s portfolio of historic venues, including Whitworth Hall and Council Chamber, Christie’s Bistro, Manchester Museum, and Whitworth Art Gallery.

Over the past 18 months, the team have supported couples who have had to rearrange their special day due to the pandemic - sometimes two, three or four times - as well as having to wade through all the various rules and guidelines that affected weddings, often having to juggle very last-minute changes.

Since hospitality reopened in May this year, the team have delivered over 15 weddings on the campus, with a few left to do before the end of the year.
