The Bentley makes it two in a row!


On Wednesday 12th June, hundreds of suppliers, creatives and venues packed out the Mercure Hotel in Piccadilly Manchester for the North West Wedding Awards 2024. For the second year running Liverpool City Centre based, The Bentley, picked up the award for the Best Venue in Merseyside.


Since opening 7 years ago the Bentley, positioned on the corner of Brunswick Street and the Strand in Liverpool City Centre, has become one of the most popular wedding venues in the region.


Weddings are a huge part of The Bentley’s appeal, with the location’s beautiful views of the city’s historic waterfront, including The Three Graces. 


General manager Ryan Dillon, who was also nominated as Wedding Planner of the year alongside colleague Events Manager Jay Harris, says he is thrilled with the award:


“We go over and above for our weddings because it’s people’s big day, one that they have dreamed of possibly from being a child, so we want to make sure it’s as magical as they’d hoped.


“We always want to make every event the best for our customers because we want people to go ‘wow’.”


“To win the Best Venue in Merseyside last year was incredible, and we were really proud. To win it a second year running is amazing. Can we win it a third time? We’ll try.  We’re going to keep on doing what we’re doing, and this has given us a huge boost.  It’s been very emotional.”


Ryan has been General Manager of The Bentley for 6 years, and always aimed to make the venue one of the best for weddings within the city.


The venue has its own wedding planning team which takes brides and grooms from initial meetings right through to every detail on the big day. And it offers a range of tailored packages across its multiple rooms which include The Cunard, The Port of Liverpool, and the rooftop terrace which overlooks the Three Graces and, in particular, has spectacular views of the Royal Liver Building and Liver Birds.


Every year the North West Wedding awards pay recognition to wedding suppliers across the North West who really go the extra mile. The annual awards are voted for by the brides and grooms who had outstanding experiences. 2024 being the 14th anniversary for the awards.


Ryan added “The awards are extra special as they are voted for by couples and guests  who have had or been to  weddings at The Bentley, which makes it even more special for all of us.”


The Bentley is based at 50 Brunswick Street Liverpool L2 0PE.
