By booking your special day at Manchester Hall, you will be one of the first couples to enjoy our iconic venue, which reopened after an extensive refurbishment in November 2017. When such care and thought has gone into planning your special day, you want a venue of equally exacting standards, and that’s why Manchester Hall is set to be one of the best Manchester wedding venues the city has to offer. We will work with you to make every detail just as you want it. From florists to photographers, we can help you in any way you need to create a day that’s perfect for you.



While retaining the original grade II listed features of the former Freemasons’ Hall, the building has been infused with a modern twist to create a wonderful setting for your day.

Exquisite period details including pillars, oak panelling and high ceilings will surround you at every turn. Our magnificent floating staircase, which is one-of-a-kind in England, makes for the perfect wedding photo. Our new rooftop terrace will be opening later in 2018.


In 2018, we will have six large and luxurious hotel rooms which can be made uniquely available if desired for the happy couple and their wedding guests. By staying with us you will be among a very select number of people who have spent the night in our iconic venue – a true once in a lifetime experience. With their elegant interiors, high ceilings and sumptuous furnishings you will be staying in some of the most exclusive accommodation that wedding venues in Manchester has to offer.

Suzie and Aaron

We had our wedding at Manchester Hall in August 2018, and what a wedding it was! Manchester hall was such a beautiful and “unexpected” gem of a venue to find smack bang in the middle of the City centre. The planning process went well especially due to the help of the fantastic Shani.

With so much going on as the building was newly refurbished and just “finding its feet” Shani went out of her way to always answer questions and meet our needs. The feedback from our guests (which included some of the owners of another local wedding venue) was that it couldn’t have been more beautiful, and the FOOD... well people have not stopped talking about how great the food was.

The standard was impeccable, and every plate piping hot (which is not always easy with 130 guests). Our day was just perfect and we can’t thank the team at Manchester hall enough.

James & Beth

Special thanks to Richie who really made our day so memorable, he was amazing helping out with Beth and making sure she was looked after and tweaked the order of the day so she could have a sleep after the meal.

With regards to the venue.... wow! We were taken aback when we saw the place prepared for our big day. It was exactly what we wanted. Our friends and family also commented on such a special venue, the decor and really brings the building to life. There are so many parts from the staircase, the funky toilets and the chandelier in the Goldbourne room that help make the venue and our wedding day stand out. You were all very catering to our needs, it’s just a shame we can’t do it all over again, it went too fast.

Special thanks for all your help, it certainly helped that you were so flexible with our package and that was the deal breaker for us. Other venues are so rigid with what you have to order soit was nice to pick what we wanted. All our guests said the food was excellent and they enjoyed the booze, perhaps a little too much, as it was flowing and we were all a little jolly at the end of the night!

Rhian & Matt

We'd like to send a massive thank you to you, Ritchie and the rest of the MH team. We had an absolutely amazing wedding - it truly was the best day of our lives - and the Hall and staff played such a huge part in that.

The Hall looked stunning (as it always does).

The food was OUTSTANDING - we had so many comments on the day and after that it was the best wedding food they ever had!

And your staff were so attentive - from helping us on Friday; to sending me down the aisle with a calming word to the wonderful dinner service.

We really feel that we made the best choice in choosing Manchester Hall for our wedding venue and we will treasure the memories forever.

Rebecca & Mark

Manchester Hall were fantastic and went above and beyond to make the day go as smoothly as possible. Shani, Mark and the team made us both feel very calm and we enjoyed meeting and working with them to create our perfect day.
The hall looked absolutely beautiful and the food was outstanding, we had so many comments, from guests, that it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding!
Thank you so very much for everyone’s hard work. We couldn’t have asked for anything more.

Also a special thanks to you Shani, you put so much effort into organising everything and made us both feel so calm and we knew everything was under control. I’m not sure if it was passed on to you, but marks mum even phoned the venue to thank you, whilst we were on honeymoon!

We will definitely be visiting Masons again soon, so we might see you!

Love the wolstenholmes

Lindsay & Danny

We recently had our wedding at Manchester Hall in July and were so pleased with everything that the team did for us leading up to and on our big day. From the start of the process we had regular meetings to discuss everything. Shani and Ritchie were happy to discuss all of the finer details and help accommodate our requests which made those final weeks a lot less stressful for us. On the day, Ritchie was fab. He had everything under control, including giving a few words of advice to keep the wedding party calm and ensure everything was running smoothly. He did not panic, and
we felt like the day was completely in hand with his professional manner and willingness to make our day one to remember. The venue is stunning, so speaks for itself. However, all our guests commented on how efficient and friendly all the staff were and they really made everyone feel like nothing was too much trouble. One of our guests who had children even offered to write a review about the venue at the time, as she was so impressed with how the staff offered her son a change of menu choice, which they didn’t have to do.

The Canapes were delicious, and the Wedding Breakfast was amazing, with the star of the show being the dessert. Order the Whiskey & White Chocolate Crème Brule! The food just kept on coming with the evening buffet too and all of our guests commented on how well they had been fed!

The amount of planning Shani and Ritchie did for our wedding day didn’t go unnoticed. We have been to so many weddings in the city centre and by comparison I am so glad we chose Manchester Hall and their great team. You made our wedding day!!

We have transformed the former Freemasons’ Hall to give it a modern twist, while retaining all its original and grade II listed features. Virtually untouched before our sensitive refurbishment, Manchester Hall occupies one of the most iconic buildings in the City.
