Alternative Weddings Manchester

Sunday, July 7th, 2019

Alternative Weddings Manchester is a wedding planning service run by Stefanie Fetterman ~ a performer, writer, artist and Humanist Celebrant who lives in Levenshulme, Manchester. The company itself sprang up in Hope Mill’s very own Engine Room, before it became Hope Mill Theatre.

Offering bespoke floral designs and venue dressing services, as well as furniture hire and event management packages, Alternative Weddings MCR help couples plan unique and unusual weddings that are as creative as they are cost effective. We value happiness over anything else, and don’t think your wedding should have to cost the earth.

In Sept 2017 Stefanie had her own Alternative Wedding in an eco-village in the Welsh woodlands and it couldn’t have been more magical. It even got featured in Rock ‘N Roll Bride!

Alternative Weddings have transformed some truly unusual spaces from grungy gig venue Band on the Wall to Hulme Community Garden Centre. Village halls, renovated warehouses, transformed cow sheds, private gardens in stately homes and puppet theatres!
