[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]As you begin planning your dream wedding, finding that perfect location should be high on your to-do list. If you’re looking for a unique, historic yet modern venue with luxurious vibes, you need to check out King Street Townhouse.
From the outside, King Street Townhouse certainly doesn’t lack curb appeal. It’s a gorgeous 1872 Italian Renaissance building that’s been updated to a more modern standard, yet still maintains it’s lovely historical features.
The moment you lay eyes on this property, you can simply feel the class and magic. It’s extremely versatile, leaving you with the option to create any wedding vibe you want. Whether you want an intimate gathering or an extravagant party, the King Street Townhouse will certainly deliver.
I’m a professional wedding photographer based in Manchester city centre, and I love shooting weddings at this stunning boutique venue. I’ve included some photos from recent weddings on this page, along with answers to questions you may have about locations for couple portraits and group photos. I’ve also included suggestions of where to park.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row us_bg_image_source=”media” us_bg_image=”18826″][vc_column][us_separator size=”custom” height=”450px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Wondering Where to Have Couple Portraits?
[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]King Street Townhouse Hotel is surrounded by some beautiful buildings and fairly quiet streets. It’s not a busy part of the city, so that makes it a little easier to have some natural, unposed couple portraits on your wedding day.
The venue is really beautiful inside, so if the weather isn’t great, there are plenty of spaces for intimate portraits in the luxury interior. Whilst shooting a wedding there earlier this year, we were waiting for access to the roof terrace and I got a quick portrait of bride and groom whilst shooting through the ornate staircase.
There are loads of locations like this, that would work really well for some unique portraits.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row width=”full”][vc_column][us_grid post_type=”attachment” images=”18834,18835,18842,18833,18838,18820,18831,18836″ orderby=”post__in” items_quantity=”” items_layout=”gallery_default” columns=”4″ items_gap=”” img_size=”us_600_400_crop” overriding_link=”popup_post_image” breakpoint_1_cols=”4″ breakpoint_2_width=”768px” breakpoint_2_cols=”4″ breakpoint_3_width=”480px” breakpoint_3_cols=”2″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
King Street Townhouse Rooftop Bar
[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Guests will enjoy breathtaking views from the rooftop sipping cocktails, while you and your love wander downtown as I capture all of the once-in-a-lifetime wedding day memories.
Receptions on the stunning 6th-floor rooftop can accommodate up to 150 guests.
Once you return, the private space is the ultimate place to hold your reception and dance the night away. It’s a blank canvas to turn into however you like, while still offering incredible city views and ambience. It’ll be a night you’ll never forget.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][us_image image=”18829″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row color_scheme=”custom” us_bg_color=”#f5f5f5″][vc_column width=”1/2″][us_image image=”18854″][us_image image=”18882″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
King Street Townhouse Luxurious Hotel Rooms
[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]The moment you step foot into one of their rooms, you’ll feel like royalty. They each have a very upscale and contemporary design complete with flat-screen TVs, free WiFi, tea & coffee stations.
The en-suites include walk-in rainfall showers, bathrobes, and free toiletries. Certain rooms also have separate seating areas where guests can relax.
All the rooms are cozy, comfy, and give you the ultimate break from the hustle and bustle of the city. Elegant decor, luxurious linens, and incredible city views await you. It’s nothing short of perfection.
Tip: When you’re booking your wedding, the hotel can block off up to 40 rooms for yourselves and your guests.
Tip: Getting ready in the hotel saves a last minute journey through the city, and your make-up artist will love the natural light in the hotel rooms. The luxurious backdrops will look great in your wedding photos![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
King Street Townhouse Wedding: Where to Have Group Photos?
[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]There are plenty of areas for small group photos, and I tend to find those are the most popular anyway, regardless of the size of the wedding. There’s space on the roof terrace above the venue, and on the balcony that runs alongside the rooftop bar. This is a fairly narrow space, but I do have a selection of wide-angle lenses, including a fisheye one that is great for larger group photos.
There are also great locations elsewhere in the hotel; on the stairways and in the area near the hotel reception. The front entrance of the hotel works well too, but there are parking spaces immediately outside, so what’s possible will depend on whether these are full or not.
I think one of the side roads would be great for a group photo of everyone, but I’ve not tried that yet. An alternative option (to save everyone having to wait on the lift down and back up) would be the rooftop bar. The light is lovely in this space, and it’s large enough to fit everyone in.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row width=”full”][vc_column][us_grid post_type=”attachment” images=”18872,18871,18870,18868,18867,18875,18877,18878″ orderby=”post__in” items_quantity=”” items_layout=”gallery_default” columns=”4″ items_gap=”” img_size=”us_600_400_crop” overriding_link=”popup_post_image” breakpoint_1_cols=”4″ breakpoint_2_width=”768px” breakpoint_2_cols=”4″ breakpoint_3_width=”480px” breakpoint_3_cols=”2″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
King Street Townhouse Wedding Ceremonies
There are a few different spaces within King Street Townhouse that are licenced for civil ceremonies. I’ve photographed weddings in two of them so far.
The spaces are perfect for small, intimate weddings. The soft mood lighting can be complemented with candles for a candle-lit wedding ceremony.
[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Q-Park Piazza is only a 5-minute walk away, and as the entrance is fairly hidden there’s usually a good chance of getting a space there. The spaces are pretty small though, so (in my opinion) it’s unsuitable for 4×4’s or larger vehicles.
Best for Budget
[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]If you’re looking for somewhere to leave your car all day, and possibly overnight, the large carpark at Store Street is a good choice. It is a longer walk, but if you’re wearing killer heels and want to save your feet for the party, you could take a tram ride from Picadilly to Picadilly Gardens or Market Street.
Best for Large Cars
[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]It’s not cheap, but it is massive, well lit & undercover, safe from Manchester’s notorious rain. I’ve never had difficulty finding a space. That 10-minute walk though, that’s from the main exit to King Street Townhouse.
