It’s stunning here, absolutely stunning. Hotel Gotham stands at the top of King Street in Manchester. Surrounded by famous names like Rosso (Owned by Ex-Manchester United and England Rolls Royce Rio Ferdinand) and Jamie’s Italian (Owned by naked chef Jamie Oliver) it’s in good company to be honest. A hotel, restaurant, club and now wedding venue to add it its mantle, I absolutely know your going to love it.

 

They say “The spectacular Hotel Gotham in the heart of mid-town Manchester opened last April to major acclaim with Bespoke Hotels fulfilling the promise to make it ‘a fun, witty destination and a little bit naughty. We want it to be the sexiest hotel in Europe’. Everything at Hotel Gotham, from the magnificent architecture to timeless décor, is designed to take the breath away. Many of the points of reference come from the rich history of the building. It was once a bank, so the ornate detailing, polished wooden counters and period architectural flourishes have been retained and enhanced. There are deep velvets, furs, leather and traditional metals.There is inspiration also, from the golden age of travel, for details such as vintage suitcases, buckled belts and hat boxes. The in-room leather-bound hospitality unit takes its cues from a classic 1930s travel trunk with finely stitched detailing and antique brass finishes. One side is a wardrobe, with hanging rail, shoe storage and a full length mirror, while the other side offers a series of compartments housing a minibar, coffee maker, glasses, and cocktail set.”

Hotel Gotham is luxury and class in the ways we all dream about. With free standing baths and a wedding suite with its very own video wall, yes wall!, how cool would that be to check in to the room with a family video message playing for you…. emotional isn’t the word. It’s the details that I love, from their very own Gotham Bugle newspaper to Gotham chocolate from Slatterys, no expense is spared. You can see why it was the winner of the outstanding new hotel at last years Independent Hotel Show Awards.

Tables laid beautifully and decorated by Springbank. Richard Smith Bespoke showcase their tailored suits and Rebecca Juliet unveils a beautiful classic dress to die for. Satyrion are with us too and it’s great when we have old friends like Anneliese with us as is Unity Ceremonies’ Liz. The setting for the exhibitors is informal giving them the time to chat to each and every couple as they come through the door. It’s a good job our Andy isn’t here today. He wouldn’t be able to resist Little Button Bakery’s delicious cakes or House of Chocolate’s phenomenal macaron’s and home made chocolates which melt in the mouth, the lemon white chocolate is a fav, they are amazing and wouldmake great favours. Displays by Dan Hough Photography and  Stephen Mcgowan Photography were amazing two photographers two different styles on hand to answer your questions. Brides by binx Charlie made sure she was on hand for those very important make up tips and looked very busy chatting to all the guests.  All guests were greeted with a rum punch, Gotham goody bag and County Bride magazine. The team conducted exclusive showrounds of the hotel rooms and wedding breakfast room. If you missed this please don’t hesitate to book a show round at contact Gotham. Which leaves us say many thanks to all those couples who battled through the closed roads and rain to spend an afternoon in luxury….we love you xx
