Wedding Venues

We’re not crying, you’re crying.

We’ve hunted down Brisbane’s most beautiful wedding venues that will leave you saying “I do” long before you’re asked, because planning a wedding is no walk in the park. Unless, of course, you’re planning a wedding in a park. Anyway, congrats!

HILLSTONE | ST LUCIA

If old world charm is what you yearn for, Hillstone St Lucia is the perfect location for you. Just a stone’s throw from Brisbane’s CBD, this historically rich venue combines Queensland architecture with modern facilities and stunning views over the surrounding golf course. Hillstone consists of countless flexible spaces for ceremonies and receptions, with parties of all sizes welcome. 

The Grand View Room is the most opulent of all, with chandeliers, luxurious lounge seating and panoramic views out to the golf course, and iconic fairy lit Mango Tree! With five enticing menus to pick from, the hardest part will be choosing the gourmet canapés your guests will enjoy, before three courses of delicious (and perfectly presented) fare, alongside generous drinks packages!

Hillstone St Lucia have been creating magical weddings for over 30 years, but while they are steeped in history, they take a fresh and innovative approach to creating your special day. Their dedicated team will create a wedding for you to cherish forever–luscious food, unforgettable views, and warm service–all while you sit back, relax, and create memories to last a lifetime. Turns out the grass is greener at Hillstone St Lucia.

NORTHSHORE HARBOUR | HAMILTON

It really doesn’t get much more romantic than this! With one of Brisbane’s best views of the river and enough room to host ALL your friends and fam, Northshore Harbour is up there with the best spots to say “I do.” 

For the ceremony, take your pick from the waterfront space, the parklands or the intimate parkview room, while receptions can be sit-down, cocktail-style, or a mix of both. Northshore Harbour’s range of mouthwatering menus will leave your guests raving, with options varying from two- and three-course alternate drop, gourmet canapes, buffet-style, and family feast dining. When it comes to drinks, they offer a range of beverage packages, as well as an option for BYO should you have some goodies sitting in your cellar…

THE WAREHOUSE | FORTITUDE VALLEY 

Originally built in 1905, the space that is now The Warehouse has a long history of serving Brisbanites. Restored to reveal its beauty and charm, The Warehouse boasts seven-metre high loft-style ceilings, arched windows, and exposed brickwork. 

Not only is the space unique–so is the service. The team at The Warehouse offer a ‘build your own wedding’ package that allows you to choose every aspect of your event to reflect your personal taste. When it comes to food, take your pick from cocktail-style feasting, family-style feasting or plated dining, alongside a range of live feasting stations like a seafood station, dumpling station, or chocolate and cheese cart. 

The opportunities are endless at The Warehouse… Only the sky is your limit. 

CUSTOMS HOUSE | CBD

With a reputation for being one of Brisbane’s premier wedding venues, Customs House is always the first venue that comes to mind for sophisticated weddings. From the jaw-dropping Patina restaurant with riverside views and contemporary styling to the intimate private dining room and the historic domed Long Room, this heritage-listed venue can cater from 70 to 200. They’ll take care of every detail, from staff to decor and everything in between, so all you have to do is worry about who’s on the invite list…

THE GLASSHOUSE AT THE ISLAND | SURFERS PARADISE 

The Island Gold Coast is the perfect spot for an intimate event or spectacular gala–with a range of wedding packages to cover whatever you have in mind. And the best part?

BRISBANE RACING CLUB | ASCOT

If the stunning heritage-listed buildings, sprawling gardens, and trees dotted with glowing fairy lights don’t win you over, Brisbane Racing Club’s dedicated wedding space–the Tote Room–certainly will. Drinks and dining packages range to suit your needs, with shared feasts, two- and three-course menus, and live stations like a dedicated paelleria or raw seafood bar on offer.
