Information For The Monastery Manchester

Amazing Wedding Venue with a Unique Style. Excellent Photographic opportunities throughout. Very experienced friendly staff who will ensure you have an unforgettable day.

The Monastery of St. Francis & Gorton Trust was established 21 years ago and is still responsible today for our iconic and magnificent building. The transformation from a state of near dereliction to an award-winning centre of inspiration has been an incredible tale of almost miraculous achievement.

We were once listed as one of the world’s 100 most endangered sites, alongside the Taj Mahal. Our success has been underpinned by both generous funders and the income generated from weddings and other wonderful events. All of these efforts were for the single purpose of ‘sharing the story’ of the heritage we have protected.

No one ever forgets their wedding day.
But it helps to have those memories enriched by the glittering setting of our spectacular Great Nave, where guests have been known to gasp at the splendour.

Top Wedding Tips

Do Not leave everything until the last minute with your planning.

Choose a venue where it doesn't matter what the weather is doing. You could save money getting married outside the popular summer months and the rain won't affect your day or your photographs.

A hard one!!! Think about You and not everyone else coming to the wedding. Its your special day so make sure its everything you dreamed of. Your guests will have an amazing time anyway...
