What people say about us...

We chose to have our entire wedding at Manchester University as it was an amazingly unique venue and had everything we needed on site. We chose the Whitworth Council chamber for our ceremony which was in the same building as Christie's and it was so nice having the whole day in one building which we didn't have to share with anyone else! In the run up to the wedding, both Rebecca and Adam were extremely helpful and answered all our questions. We dropped off all our decorations the night before the wedding and the team at the venue transformed the rooms - it was amazing to see! They even assembled and decorated our cheese wedding cake for us! The actual wedding day was perfect, we were looked after so well by Rebecca, Adam, Steve and all the other staff that were there. The day ran so smoothly, it was nice to be able to relax and enjoy every second. All the guests commented that the food was amazing and that the day was loads of fun. We were on the dance floor until 1am, taking full advantage of the late licence. We genuinely had the best day of our lives - it was the perfect wedding venue and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a unique city centre venue where it feels like you are the most important people on the day! We can't thank Rebecca, Adam and Steve enough!

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you did for our wedding. The Living Worlds Gallery looked fantastic, all the guests were really impressed with the setting. The food was fantastic, especially the lamb which received many positive comments, and thanks for being so accommodating to all our guests with food intolerances. The waiting staff were wonderful and made our guests feel very welcome.
