If you are looking for a Worsley wedding venue, or a venue near Manchester that feels like a country wedding, then Worsley Park Marriott may be for you.
Located just seven miles from downtown Manchester, this 4-star luxury hotel offers a picturesque country setting. Situated on 200 acres of sprawling parkland, it feels like you are in the middle of nowhere, but in fact, is easily accessible.
Featuring elegant spaces surrounded by acres of lush gardens, the former Duke of Bridgewater’s estate is ideal for those seeking a picture-perfect Manchester wedding venue.
The reception area is a photographer’s dream. Ornate mirrors, various armchairs in different designs, mirrored tables and high ceilings.
The covered glass walkway leading to the reception is surrounded by tubs of bright flowers and is a great space for photos, whatever the weather.
The outdoor inner courtyard with its cobbled floor and water feature is gorgeous and the function room itself is light, airy and neutral, so that you can add your own special touches to your wedding theme.
There are plenty of areas in the grounds for picture-perfect images. the manicured lawns of the golf course, or the woodland surrounding it. The beer gardne of the pub within the hotel grounds is stunning. Full of bright flowers, seating areas, an old tractor and a terrace.
If you want to venture slightly furhter afield, Worsley village is a 2 minute drive away. I love taking the bridal party off to the Bridgewater canal for some images with the iconic orange canal in the background. Perch on the steps in front of the famous Packet House. Walk along the wooden alphabet bridge, so named because it is 26 planks long. Stroll on to the huge village green to the Worsley monument or pose in front of the distinctive Queen Victoria Boathouse.
The opportunities are endless.
