THE PLACE FOR CITY WEDDINGS
THE PLACE APARTHOTEL
MAKING DREAMS COME TRUE For a beautiful city centre wedding, The Place Aparthotel is ideally situated in central Manchester. Step into The Place and feel like you’re in another world – a world that you can make your own. The spacious rooms can be blank canvasses for you to decorate however you wish, and we can create menus and seating arrangements to suit you and your guests. Book in to one of our luxury two bedroom, two bathroom Penthouse apartments for the night before and have a great space to get ready in on your wedding morning. The abundant natural light in the apartments and throughout the hotel is a photographer’s dream, making easy and beautiful photo opportunities both before the wedding and throughout the day.
We don’t believe in trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. In other words, we won’t tell you that you must take a particular package exactly as listed. Instead we provide you with various options and will work with you to tailor these as little or as much as you like. We pride ourselves on our flexible approach and we’re on hand to discuss options and answer any questions you may have. Our experienced wedding professionals will guide you through from your first look around and throughout the day itself - just like having your own wedding planner!
In fact, the photography options create head-turning moments, the original features of this Victorian former warehouse, providing distinctive backdrops.
