Wanted: ten couples for Manchester Pride's first group civil ceremony

The venue is booked. The photographer is ready. The Reverend has even got the date in his diary…now all we need are the couples.To celebrate Manchester Prides eighteenth anniversary, couples are invited to take part in a Manchester wide group civil ceremony, taking place at the Marriott Victoria & Albert Hotel and the Renaissance Manchester Hotel on 21st August.

The ceremony itself will take place in the main suites of both hotels, which are fully licensed and will be conducted by Manchester Registrar office. Once this part of the service has finished the couples will have a group blessing conducted by a local vicar.

Andrew Stokes, chairman of Manchester Pride, comments: “Manchester Pride is leading where others will follow. The group civil ceremony will be a highlight of the festival and a fantastic start to the ‘Big Weekend’, not to mention a very memorable day for the ten couples actually taking part.”

After the ceremony and group blessing, there will be an evening celebration for the couples, their family and friends.

Each of the ten couples will have the opportunity to invite a select number of guests who will be seated together for the evening celebrations.
