The Belle Epoque is an Alternative, Unique & Unusual Wedding Venue in The North West

Everyone wants a unique wedding – one that everyone will remember, and a major part of that can be picking a venue that is unusual and memorable.

The Belle Epoque is an iconic grade II listed building situated in the heart of beautiful Knutsford, Cheshire. Steeped in history this unique venue was created in 1907 and features two pillars derived from the original St Peter’s church in Manchester. Many of the original features have been preserved, and the character of the Belle Epoque era remains. Art Nouveau fireplaces, Venetian handmade glass floors and the Mediterranean roof garden are among the key features within the building today.

Luxury and opulence radiates throughout the stylish décor creating a dramatic backdrop for your ceremony and celebrations.
