The Great Northern, 235 Deansgate, Greater Manchester
As soon as we stepped foot into the venue we knew this was the place where we had to get wed! The vintage furniture, the architecture and the general vibe the venue had was exactly what we were looking for. The team on the day were fantastic. They did every thing we asked for to give us a wedding day we could only dream of. Natasha and her team worked so hard to give us everything we could possibly want and more. It was her idea for us to use the lanes as a catwalk, to walk down and get married in front of the pins. They even lay down a red carpet for us. It worked perfectly. We organised decorations to dress the venue to give that extra sparkle. Red hearts and lanterns hung from the ceiling. The staff had stayed until 3am the night before to get the venue ready for the big day and it looked breathtaking. The bar and restaurant offer amazing food. We set up the bar with two bowling pins dressed as the bride and groom with all the champagne glasses arranged around them. The bar do the BEST cocktails and we gave all our guests a free cocktail to enjoy after the meal. We had burgers,pulled pork,mac & cheese… gourmet diner food. After our wedding breakfast we had a bowling tournament which broke up the day nicely and everyone had such a great time. In the evening we moved our party into the Jungle Room. It has a cocktail bar and sound system where all our guests danced until the wee hours. The restaurant did sumptuous canapés for us too. We cannot thank enough ALL the staff at All Star Lanes for all the hard work they put into making it the day of our lives. They didn’t just provide a service. They cared about the service they gave… and it showed in bucketloads. All our friends and family have still not stopped talking about our special day.
