With a diverse, energetic character and the perfect blend of history and contemporary charisma, Manchester is the ideal location for the modern couple. These four remarkable wedding venues have something to offer every newly engaged pair looking for a dreamy destination to tie the knot. From a converted church to hotels just bursting with charm, you can’t go wrong saying your I do’s at these Manchester wedding venues.

Oddfellows On The Park 

At Oddfellows On The Pak, they believe that no good story starts with a salad… Thier mixologists and sommeliers will help you choose the perfect wine, bubbly and cocktails to help you celebrate your special day and dance the night away. Most people like to toast their vows with fizz or champagne, and with a choice of everything from Italian Prosecco to vintage French champagne, they will make sure your fizz of choice pops your cork! Fancy something a little different? For those crisp winter weddings, Kir Royale is a popular choice, whilst in the heat of the summer, a Bellini can really refresh.

All wedding couples are invited in for a wine tasting, usually combined with a food tasting with the head chef so that wine choices can be paired up according to the flavours in the food. Wine is something we do extraordinarily well, even if we do say so ourselves. The senior team love wine and have relationships across the globe from California to Italy. They know small family vineyards who create vegan, organic wines and also have relationships with the famous names who have created fabulous wines for centuries. Oddfellows have over 180 bins to choose from. They are new world and old world and even include up-and-coming wine producers from Lebanon and the UK!

Some couples like to create a cocktail for their special day, sometimes something that matches their theme or just named after people or places that are important to them. Their mixologists can create bespoke creations or just add a twist to your favourite cocktails. You can even create a mini-cocktail menu for the day for your guests to choose from. You might even want to include our Odd Gin, created especially for Oddfellows using English botanicals and herbs.
