“ So throw those curtains wide! One day like this a year would see me right!” Claire and Jon knew they wanted to get married somewhere that wasn’t a church but that still had the feel of a church. Both from Manchester and with a keen interest in all things local, the Monastery in Gorton was a perfect wedding venue choice.
Many things make Gorton Monastery wonderful for weddings – the incredible space provided by the soaring architecture, the contrast between the rich colours and textures around the former altar and the romantic drama of the cloisters with their distinctive Gothic windows.
Claire’s sisters gave lively support to her preparations, and Jon’s men were cool, calm and collected. They were all soon whisked from hotel to monastery, and the setting formed a marvellous backdrop to one of the warmest, happiest occasions you could wish for.
