Beginning our tour perched on an elevated area, surrounded by parkland on the outskirts of Brisbane’s CBD in Herston, is the renowned Brisbane venue Victoria park. Offering a whopping 6 unique event spaces to choose from, each with its own dedicated ceremony space adjoining the function room.

Fresh to the Brisbane wedding scene having opened mid 2019, our tour takes us back to Fortitude Valley to soak in the charm of The Warehouse. This beautiful old building that has recently been refurbished is full of character, designed to host bespoke celebrations, with a grand indoor event space, and an open-air rooftop which we think is the perfect spot for a wedding ceremony followed by an intimate reception.
Or for larger groups, head down a level and experience the grand loft style function space with exposed brick walls and endless photo opportunities.
