Any really memorable weddings at the venue?

.

We have memorable weddings every week of course, but one of our most entertaining was Debbie and Peter in May 2009. Debbie is a professional dancer so her and Peter had worked out a fantastic rock and roll dance for their 1950’s wedding, just beautiful. Also, some teachers present got everybody up for an impromptu lesson, it ended up like West Side story, but with girls versus guys.

.

.

Can you give Brides Up North an idea on price/ any special packages available?

.

To hire this beautiful ballroom is only £1,200, and our menus start from £30.00 per head.
