    Manningham Function Centre was a great place for a wedding reception. We spent some time researching before our day; our reception had a big guest list so it was important to find a place that was large enough to suit our wedding theme. As soon as we found Manningham we knew it was the perfect place for us! The interior is so open and spacious, with a beautiful modern look. There was plenty of space for all our guests.

    We were very happy with the entertainment — the piano and sound system sounded great. We loved the flexibility of being able to choose the catering — lots of positive feed back about the food! The colours were good for a nighttime function, Serendipity captured all parts of the night in good detail — the photos take us back to the celebrations and atmosphere of the night.

    Thanks Serendipity!

    Helen and Robert
