Manchester Wedding

Founded by the Romans, the name came from the then Roman fort of Mamucium or Mancunium. It has always been a place where people liked to create things. In the 16th century the raw material was wool, then that led to the spinning and weaving of cloth, and then huge growth from the boom in textile manufacture. That created a need for great transport links, canals, roads and rail. It is still one of the most connected large cities in the UK. Add on the music and other cultural attractions and you see why it is a great place to get married.
