The Grand Palais, A Big Little Venue

The Grand Palais

April’s wedding fair took me to The Grand Palais in Swinton. What a wonderful find! Lovingly restored over 15 years by Stephen Johnson, the gold leafed decor and chandeliered ceiling has a distinct ballroom feel. As part of the dance school that shares the same 1920s building the possibility of having a dance themed wedding or just getting wed in a cute but quirky venue should be really appealing. Even the loos have been given the loving refurb touch! Some of my favourite weddings have been really simple venues – Karin and Joe’s in a scout hut in the middle of Cumbria comes to mind! – where all of the energy of the day is essentially in one space. Somehow it just adds to the whole spice and intensifies the whole flavour!
