Wedding venues that come with an in-built sense of history always carry an extra layer of charm, and the same is true of the Fusilier Museum in Bury, a Grade II listed building which houses a collection of uniforms, medals and other artefacts once used by the Lancashire Fusiliers. Naturally, the venue is popular with those serving in the armed forces who are looking to get hitched, but all are welcome here.
The Fusilier Museum offers two spaces for wedding ceremonies and receptions. The Minden Suite is a modern space which can welcome up to 100 guests for a civil ceremony and wedding breakfast. The same space can then be transformed come nightfall to act as the venue for your evening reception, welcoming up to 200 standing guests and coming complete with a self-contained bar.
More intimate wedding parties can instead opt for the smaller-scale Gallipoli Room, which can accommodate up to 50 seated guests for a ceremony. This space dates back to Victorian times and features a fireplace, chandeliers and mahogany panelled walls, providing an undoubtedly romantic atmosphere for tying the knot.
For those all-important wedding photographs, The Fusilier Museum offers an abundance of spaces to get picture perfect shots. Many couples choose the venue’s grandiose sweeping staircase for group shots of the bridal party, while the Gallipoli garden is just outside the museum and provides a beautiful backdrop for photos during the warmer summer months.
The Fusilier Museum provides a dedicated wedding planner to help every couple bring their dream wedding day to life, while it’s also worth noting that the venue never hosts more than one wedding at the same time, which means you will have exclusive use of the venue, staff and all facilities on your big day. Various dinner and drinks packages are also available.
