Top wedding venues near brisbane

Did you get engaged over the holidays? Congratulations! We have created this list of top wedding venues near Brisbane to help you get started with planning your day.

Being engaged is an exciting and special time as a couple. It can also be one of the most stressful times in your relationship.  Couples often feel a lot of pressure to make sure the wedding is absolutely perfect.

From the non-traditional to the traditional, we know a thing or two about what makes weddings memorable.  We pride ourselves on being a full-service wedding and events catering company. What does that really mean?   Well for one thing, we’ve been serving happy couples in  some of Queensland’s most prestigious venues for 20 years.

We have access to some of Brisbane’s best wedding suppliers, and can therefore make planning your special day easy!  Whether you are looking for a unique venue, have a quirky idea or are interested in any of the packages in this blog, contact our Wedding Specialists today so we can help you find your wedding style that suits your taste, vision and budget.

  1. SAY ‘I DO’ 1000+ FEET ABOVE SEA LEVEL

Is it your dream to say ‘I do’ as the sun sets majestically 1100 feet above sea level overlooking the Gold Coast hinterland and with expansive ocean views?

If your perfect venue is located among acres of lush open fields and untouched rainforest, check out Ardeena. Ardeena offers stunning ceremony locations. Choose between indoor, covered outdoor or flat lawn spaces. Ardeena is a blank canvas bounded only by your imagination!

2. AN INTIMATE AFFAIR

Do you imagine your wedding smaller and more intimate cocktail style wedding or engagement party? We have two perfect venues in mind. Loyal Hope is a brand new venue with a fully stocked bar, gorgeous furniture and heritage features. Loyal Hope is located in the head of the entertainment precinct of Brunswick Street.

The architecturally designed Newstead Studios has a garden terrace and polished concrete floors. It is filled with natural light and lush botanicals. The minimalist venue presents a modern, clean and fresh alternative for your wedding allowing you to add your personal touch and bring your vision to life. In addition, the Arch Room could be an intimate dinner alternative.

3.  MARQUEE OR TIPI

If starry-nights are your thing, why not consider a marquee or tipi wedding? Marquee weddings are ideal for the warmer months where you can let your imagination run wild with spring or summer styling themes (oversized greenery draped from the ceiling and neutral floral centre pieces, yes please!). You can also impress your guests with an incredible catering experience, like a feast and dessert station filled with delicately created delights.

Or, if you fancy a winter wedding, why not host it in a tipi? Tipi weddings are perfect for the cooler months. Think open fire pits, cosy blankets for your guests and plenty of rustic and colourful decor. Tipi weddings offer a more relaxed and casual vibe and you can choose your own food station to match your personal theme.

If this is a style you’re considering, contact us and we can help point you in the right direction. Alternatively, we can bring our catering services to you at your own property.

4. PROGRESSIVE AND MODERN

The State Library of Queensland boasts a beautiful contemporary design, an array of galleries and stunning indoor and outdoor spaces that are perfect for progressive weddings. After exchanging vows, you can head to the River Decks for cocktails, gourmet canapes and striking city and river views. Then, head over to the Queensland Terrace for a memorable setting for your wedding reception. The venue takes advantage of Southeast Queensland’s beautiful climate. SLQ brings the outside in and offers amazing views of the city and surrounding greenery. To finish the night off in style, treat your guests to a delicious degustation food experience.

5. FORMAL WITH A TWIST

Perhaps you’re picturing a formal wedding venue and style but with a contemporary twist. If that’s the case, boy do we have the perfect wedding venue for you! Situated in Fortitude Valley, Lightspace was created from a converted warehouse and features ample open space in an industrial chic design. It’s both eclectic and modern and comes with a mixture of vintage and contemporary furniture onsite for you to choose from. This wedding venue matches perfectly with canapes to start, a three-course sit-down meal consisting of warm quail salad, locally sourced lamb racks, decadent chocolate sponge and to top it all off, a cheeky late-night whisky bar to boot.

6. OLD WORLDY AND MYSTERIOUS

Conveniently located in Fortitude Valley, Baedeker Bar is the perfect venue for brides and grooms with a flare for all things vintage. Say “I do” in the champagne garden surrounded by fairy lights and beautiful garden beds. Your guests can then enjoy cocktail hour in the Cuban Lounge with an outdoor bar and cushioned chairs hanging from the ceiling while enjoying some delectable canapes  before sitting down in the Acland Lounge for a delicious three course meal with your cake served as dessert. While you’re there, take a look at the revolving bookshelf that’s filled with the travel journals of the bar’s namesake Karl Baedeker. We promise your guests will have never experienced a venue quite like Baedeker!
