Manchester now has a new wedding venue that may raise a few eyebrows. The Albert hall on Peter Street has recently established itself as a music venue, but the Manchester Evening News is reporting that it is branching out to weddings.
Having been built in 1910 as the Methodist Central Hall, it fell out of use throughout the late ‘60s until recent times, when it was developed into a lively music venue. The Wesleyan building would seem a natural choice for hosting the binding together of two people intent on spending the rest of their lives together, though it has taken until now for that to be realised.
The venue appears to have been hiding in plain sight, though is now fully licensed for weddings to be conducted within its Grade II listed walls.
A professional wedding photographer from Manchester or the surrounding area would most certainly be able to utilise the gothic aesthetic of the Albert Hall, accentuating the off-beat backdrop the venue provides.
Owner Joel Wilkinson said of the future wedding arena:
“Albert Hall is a stunning venue for any type of event, the live shows have been incredible here and now we are offering people the iconic venue to create their own special memories.”
The choice of setting is always a difficult one to make for those planning their special day, though it has just got that little bit harder with the introduction of the Albert Hall to the list of spots available.
