Chetham’s Library Wedding Open Day

February 5, 2016

There’s a brand new wedding venue in the North West and we’re very excited about it. Welcome to Chetham’s Library.

You may have seen our blog a couple of weeks ago taking a look Behind the Scenes of a Bridal Shoot at the venue. This week we thought we’d bring you some history about the library.

Chetham’s Library was founded in 1653 and is the oldest public library in England. As an independent charity it remains open to readers and visitors free of charge, although a minimum donation can be made of £3. The collection of books in the library have been designated as one of national and international importance, an accolade of which they are extremely proud. Chetham’s is a place steeped in history which makes it a perfect wedding venue.

Wedding ceremonies in this fascinating setting, are truly days to remember. Ceremonies are mostly held in the Baronial Hall, within the beautiful old sandstone walls of what was, other than the neighbouring church, the largest building in the medieval town of manchester.


Vanilla in Allseasons are delighted to say that we are the official event caterers for Chetham’s Library. Ceremonies, drinks receptions and wedding breakfasts can be hosted in a series of period rooms with flexibility to accommodate anything from the most intimate gathering to larger groups. If the beautiful Chetham’s is a venue that appeals to you then why not visit the Chetham’s Library Wedding Open Day on Sunday 21st February between 11am and 3:30pm where our expert catering team will be offering refreshments for you take in the gorgeous building.
