Multi-Faith Weddings

At Manchester's Modern-day Monastery

We embrace multi-faith weddings here at Manchester’s modern-day Monastery. It’s our honour to celebrate love and commitment of all colours and creeds.

In fact, we just won Best Manchester Venue 2021 at the North West Wedding Awards. You can read more about that right here.

We’re proud of Manchester’s rich, multicultural scene and host weddings of all faiths. You’re free to chose your own minister, service, catering, mis-en-scene and/or entertainment and we’ll provide you with the perfect setting.

Flexible Spaces

Accommodating up to 450 guests for a seated dinner, or 600 for a ceremony, the Great Nave creates a spectacular setting for those treasured photographs, with its private enclosed garden, cloisters and flexible friary room spaces for smaller ceremonies.


Our award-winning team is fully conversant in the traditions that make multi-faith weddings wonderfully memorable for the bride, groom, their families and their guests.

Freedom of Choice

Our ‘venue hire only’ model gives you the freedom and flexibility to choose everything you need for your perfect day. We’ll be happy to supply you with a list of our trusted favourites and recommended partners.

Exclusive Full-day Weddings

The Monastery can provide exclusive venue hire for a full day of joyous, private celebrations.

We’ll provide you with clear and transparent pricing on request so that you can plan the cost of your wedding easily. Quotes are free and without obligation.

Just let us know what you need and we’ll happily explain your options.

An unspeakably romantic, twilight ceremony is a very popular choice and is available Sunday to Thursday, subject to availability. Moreover, this extraordinary wedding venue offers the flexibility – from intimate ceremonies to lavish affairs – to accommodate all of your nearest and dearest under one, perfect roof.
