Alison from Manningham Function Centre provided a wonderful reception for our wedding. Working with the caterers at Crystal Palace, she made our event run smoothly. We had our ceremony on the balcony on the library and they made sure the guests were well looked after.

This venue is perfect for any size and the pricing is very reasonable. They are organised and looked after me and my guests on the night. It was very reassuring to come into the venue and not have to worry about anything.

A superb, classic and elegant venue for both the ceremony and reception. Thanks to John, Alison and the staff for doing an excellent job. Every last minute changes and requests were attended without any hesitation. Special thanks to Alison for keeping all the stresses away from me, the Bride, during that night.
