Fancy bagging a free wedding venue? Well, from 19th July, once the final lockdown restrictions in England are lifted, Manchester-based venue, Three Little Words and sister premises The Spirit of Manchester Distillery, will be available to book as a wedding reception venue with no hire charge from Monday-Wednesday throughout 2021 and beyond*. 

With more than 132,000 weddings postponed throughout the pandemic, Manchester Gin’s owners Seb Heeley and Jen Wiggins (whose own wedding has been cancelled three times since the start of the pandemic) are opening the doors to their much-loved cocktail bar and gin distillery to celebrate the return of wedding season in the UK.

Speaking about the gesture, Manchester Gin co-founder Jen says: “We know how difficult it is to secure a wedding venue now, with so many cancellations meaning that venues are booked up years in advance, leaving limited options for those who have missed out this past year.

“It’s the first time we have ever opened the doors to The Spirit of Manchester Distillery as a wedding reception venue, and we cannot wait to help couples create their special day.

“After several enquiries from customers, we decided to offer the venue to couples for free, as we know too well, the financial burden the past year has had on couples due to be married.”

With photo-worthy arches and exposed brick-work, The Spirit of Manchester Distillery makes for a truly unique wedding venue. Meanwhile, the bar and kitchen team at Three Little Words can deliver delicious food and drinks for you and your guests to create a wedding reception to remember.


“From cocktails and canapés to bubbly and a sit-down meal, to – of course – Manchester Gin distilled on site! We will help you design the perfect evening to celebrate your special day surrounded by your nearest and dearest as you dance, eat and enjoy life,” adds Jen. 

Manchester Gin will also be creating a limited-edition Wedding Gin this summer, in celebration of all the couples who can now get married in 2021.

*Free wedding venue hire available for parties of 40 to 250 wedding guests (dependent on restrictions), for wedding reception only. Available to book Monday to Wednesday only with no hire charge; bookings Thursday -Sunday may require a hire charge. Minimum spend on food and drink is £50pp
