The Monastery Manchester

The ideal location for your wedding day. This striking venue is impressive, romantic, quiet and visually stunning and it will make sure that your big day will be an event to remember forever.

Facilities and capacity

Their Cloister Space, Private Chapel and Main Space are all licensed to perform both wedding and civil ceremonies. They can hold parties from 50 to 550 people, and the Archangel Garden makes an excellent background for lovely, remarkable wedding pictures.

Besides, their Friary Rooms can offer flexible dining facilities for between 10 and 50 guests. The Private Chapel, for example, is an incomparable place where monks once prayed and now makes an elegant setting for a special dining experience. Inside the venue it is accessible for the elderly and disabled with very few obstacles.

Services offered

Your big day here at The Monastery will be unlike any other as it will be able to be personalised for you as to make your unique wedding wishes come true. They are also specialised for cultural weddings, such as Hindu, Indian and Jewish celebrations.


The Monastery Manchester’s in-house chefs will guarantee high quality food and first class service as they offer splendid catering packages and a premium range of menu choices.

Other services

Flexibility. The main space is recommended for delegate numbers from 75 to 650 in different settings and there is also a wide variety of areas in the Friary Rooms as to be able to fulfill the most complex of agendas imagined. Should you wish to take a look, they are open to the public most Sundays from midday to 4 pm.

I would always recommend a big dance floor for this venue as it needs the visible area so guests know where the dance floor is. For weddings the White Dance Floor does look amazing.


After recently following a £6.5 million restoration plan, this Pugin’s architectural masterpiece actually sits alongside the Taj Mahal or the ruins of Pompeii as it has been listed in the 100 most endangered sites in the world, with a rich heritage that should never be lost.


The location of the monastery is only a few miles away from Manchester City Centre. It’s adjacent to a housing estate with not a lot around it. The Venue is stunning and has plenty of picture opportunities on the inside as well as the green courtyard within the venue.

Parking is free and plentiful.
