While the traditional summer wedding season might be over that’s not stopping a stunning wedding venue in Salford from holding a unique exhibition about how the ‘Big Day’ is celebrated across the globe.
The event, ‘Weddings from around the World’, runs from 11-14 September and takes place at the beautiful Grade-II listed St Clement’s Church in Ordsall, Salford, just a few minutes’ walk from Salford Quays.
The exhibition will take a look at how different cultures approach organising weddings and, in addition, the four-day event will feature a variety of workshops and activities including calligraphy, sewing groups, dance demonstrations and food tastings. Everyone is welcome.
Arguably the highlight of the event is a parade taking place on Saturday which commences at Ordsall Community Arts on Robert Hall Street.
Scott Neal, marketing manager at LPC Living, said “The church has been at the heart of Ordsall for more than 130 years and no doubt many married couples young and old will have happy memories of tying the knot in this remarkable building. Not only would this exhibition provide an insight into how nuptials are arranged by different counties it would also provide a great opportunity to see the building following recent renovation and how redevelopment of the surrounding area has been done sympathetically to ensure the church continues to be a focal point for the community”.
The event has been supported by a variety of organisations including Salford City Council, Salford Community Leisure, Salix Homes and LPC Living, the developer owned by the Pervaiz Naviede Family Trust, which is currently regenerating the Ordsall estate.
