This week on Behind the Door I’m very excited to visit a venue that is fast becoming a wedding favourite,; The Craft & Co! The Craft & Co opened in late 2015 as a space all about the production and craft of amazing food and drink. Located in Melbourne’s inner suburb of Collingwood, the space houses a brewery, distillery, cellar door, eatery, cafe, bar, cheese and charcuterie rooms. So it’s no wonder it’s become a huge hit with foodie couples!
“We love that the space is a blank canvas,” says Diana, “couples can decorate it in their own personal style, but it still has many industrial features that create a very Melbourne feel”. I love the natural look, wooden chairs and long, sharing-style tables. Diana tells me one of the most popular ways to style the space is with fresh flowers and greenery. They also love to hang floral installations from the ceiling!
Downstairs is the Craft & Co Eatery and Diana tells me the outdoor deck is the perfect place for hen’s and buck’s parties. “The guys can do a brewery tour and the pasta making class is very popular with the girls,” says Diana, “it’s great to do a fun activity before sitting down to some dinner and drinks”.
Ms Zigzag says: Amelia always seems to uncover the coolest places to hold weddings and other wedding celebrations, like hen’s and buck’s days. I’m in charge of organising a hen’s day in 2018, so I’ll definitely be checking out The Craft & Co.
