Weddings & Civil Ceremonies

Ethel Leontine Gabain, The Little Bride, 1934

A beautiful and unforgettable setting for weddings and civil ceremonies, our galleries and artworks will provide a stunning backdrop for your photographs. 

We can host your ceremony, your reception, or both, and one of our specialised event planners will be delighted to guide you through the planning process and help you organise your big day. 

Weddings and civil ceremonies can be held among the distinctive Mancunian paintings by Lowry and Valette in Gallery 16. After the ceremony, celebrate with drinks in the romantic Pre-Raphaelite Galleries, followed by dinner and dancing in the glass Atrium, the Galleries or the Gallery Cafe.

“The gallery helped to make our wedding a truly memorable day. We have had some amazing feedback from our guests about both how fabulous the wedding venue was and how good the catering was. We would have no hesitation in recommending the gallery for an event”

Our critically acclaimed Gallery Café team will put on a delicious spread, made from the highest quality, locally and sustainably sourced ingredients – taking care to meet any special dietary requirements you or your guests have.

We aim to make the process of planning your wedding as simple as possible. From florists to entertainers and everything in between, we’ve partnered with local, talented professionals who provide an affordable and reliable service with a focus on sustainability – meaning all you need to do is browse our curated list of recommendations and take your pick.
