A Great Space For Your Special Day

Manchester boasts a wealth of wedding venues, but for couples looking for somewhere that’s a little bit more unique and personal, having your wedding reception at Burnage Rugby Club (BRC) in South Manchester is the perfect solution

This beloved Heaton Mersey institution offers a surprisingly versatile space for your special day, set in 11 acres of green fields on the border of Stockport and Didsbury.  Imagine exchanging vows bathed in warm sunlight during the summer months, with the vibrant green of the fields framing your ceremony. If you are looking for a large event then hire the marquee. The marquee itself transforms into a beautiful reception space, its white walls adding to that Bridal feel. Once the overhead fairy lights come on at dusk there is a magical twinkle as the celebrations continue into the evening. With the option to incorporate the patio area, you can create a seamless flow between indoor and outdoor spaces, allowing guests to mingle and enjoy the fresh air.

But BRC’s appeal goes beyond aesthetics. The friendly and professional staff are adept at turning your vision into reality, ensuring a stress-free planning process. Wedding planning doesn’t need to be a nightmare! They offer a range of catering options, including a popular BBQ menu, perfect for a casual summer wedding. Whether you envision a sophisticated sit-down meal or a relaxed grazing affair, BRC can accommodate your preferences at a surprisingly competitive price!


The flexibility of the space allows you to personalise your wedding to reflect your unique style. There are two inside areas which can be used together or independently depending on the size and style of your event. There is a state of the art sound system and projector, and two 75 in ch TV screens if you want to show photographs. It can be a relaxed, bright and bubbly affair with light colours and a buffet. Alternatively, the space can be completely transformed with elegant drapery, fairy lights, and floral arrangements to create a romantic and intimate ambiance while you settle down to a sit down meal.

The experienced team is not only there to help you decide on decor and catering. With their extensive experience they can recommend external providers of pretty much everything, including DJs; Florists; Photographers; Photo Booths; Cakemakers and so on. Whatever you want, just ask!

Burnage Rugby Club’s location is another bonus. As a South Manchester wedding venue, it offers a surprising escape from the hustle and bustle. Although it is still in the heart of things, its position beside the river Mersey makes it seem miles away from anywhere. Ample parking is available on-site, ensuring a smooth arrival for your guests. For those seeking overnight accommodation, there are several hotels within easy reach. It is within 10 minutes of the M60 for easy access for guests coming from afar. There are of course all the facilities for anyone who is disabled.

This is the perfect place for couples seeking a wedding that’s relaxed, fun, and full of personality. You really have the opportunity here to stamp your own style here. The inside rooms can be dressed so many different ways according to what colour scheme you want, how you want the seating, what entertainments you want. The space is so flexible that the sky is the limit but the budget is still down to earth!

The greenery gives wonderful backdrops for your wedding photos and imagine your first dance taking place under a canopy of fairy lights against the twilight sky. With its unique charm, flexibility, and welcoming atmosphere, Burnage Rugby Club offers a fabulous canvas for creating a truly unforgettable wedding day.
