Accommodation gems for a Manchester wedding

A popular reason to book luxury serviced apartments in Manchester is for family celebrations – especially weddings. With accommodation ranging from intimate suites in graded Regency houses, to spacious modern apartments large enough for work meetings, we at Serviced City Pads can accommodate not only the bride and groom, but the guests as well.

When people book accommodation in Manchester for a wedding, it may not necessarily be a traditional church ‘do.’ The city has a number of alternative wedding venues, including civic buildings, stately homes and even a submarine! The House of Fraser is better known for gifts than weddings, but just round the corner is Parsonage Gardens, one of numerous hidden gems near the river, that’s perfect for a post-ceremonial photo shoot.

Religious ceremonies are still the most popular way to go – and Manchester has an impressive selection of both Christian and non-Christian venues. Popular for traditionalists is Manchester Cathedral. Originally the parish church, it only gained cathedral status in 2002 and is as bookable as any other church.  Medieval in origin, it was practically rebuilt in the 19th century – although for once, the Victorians stuck close to the plans of the original. Sited close to the river, guests booking serviced apartments in central Manchester will find it easily.

Roman Catholic couples traditionally book their ceremonies at St Mary’s. This “hidden gem” was the first post-reformation RC church in England, and was consecrated in 1794. Beautiful inside, it’s worth visiting for its artworks alone.

Whether you’re guests or the lucky couple, we at Serviced City Pads have luxury serviced apartments in Manchester’s most popular wedding areas.
