Did you get engaged over the holidays? Congratulations!

Even though 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 are known for our creativity and stand-out service, with a variety of set and bespoke menus to suit all types of wedding venues, themes and styles. We were the 2018 recipient of the Annual Bridal Industry Awards (ABIA) Queensland Independent Caterer award, which is determined solely by past brides and grooms of Australia, who rate and review their wedding vendors in terms of quality of product, quality of service, attitude of staff and value for money.

Secondary to this, but equally as important, 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. URBAN ROOFTOP

Imagine this: a beautiful rooftop ceremony under a starry-night sky. Dreamy, huh?

We have the perfect urban rooftop location overlooking the Brisbane River and the Story Bridge.  Rooftop weddings are quickly becoming a popular wedding style, and with good reasons. Not only because of the obvious (sublime views), but because of practical reasons such as their contingency against the unpredictability of weather, which from our experience, can cause a significant amount of stress on the day (you don’t want that, right?).

The Grove can host up to 300 guests for drinks and canapes.  The partial covered deck is the perfect for a ceremony and pre-dinner drinks, with several trees for additional shade, fairy lights and views out to Moreton Bay.  The large air-conditioned internal room has floor-to-ceiling windows allowing up to 220 seated guests access to views from Moreton Bay to Mount Coot-tha and beyond wrap.  This space needs to be seen to realise its potential.

  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 in a secluded location, with 77 acres of lush open fields and untouched rainforest, check out Ardeena.   With stunning ceremony locations, your choice of indoor, covered outdoor or flat lawn reception options Ardeena is a blank canvas bounded only by your imagination!  And we would love to help you host an intimate garden party, a luxurious breakfast or an abundant wedding day feast.

3. 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 located in the head of the entertainment precinct of Brunswick Street.

The architecturally designed Newstead Studios has a garden terrace and polished concrete floors, and 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 alternative for a memorable dinner for you and 20 of your friends and family.

  1.  MARQUEE OR TIPI

If starry-nights are your thing, but you’re after a more rural feel 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.

5. 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, bringing the outside in and offering amazing views of the city and surrounding greenery. To finish the night off in style, treat your guests to a delicious degustation food experience.

6. 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.

7. 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!
