Location:

The venue is located on the fringe of a warehouse precinct, close to Macaulay Station (100metres) and excellent road access via Citylink or other main arteries. It is approximately 3km from the CBD. On-street parking is unrestricted and is particularly abundant after regular business hours. There are no residences in the vicinity.

Green:

Twotonmax has been developed with the environment in mind. Firstly, it is a re-use of an existing (ancient) building, so it benefits from low encapsulated energy. In some instances, the materials usually discarded during the demolition phase have been re-crafted and employed in the finished product. Examples of this include the slatted timber cladding on the entry gate and bulkhead areas, the central timber stairs, and the metal fence and handrail components.

Equally importantly, all consumables used in wet areas and all cleaning products used in the venue are carefully considered to be environmentally sensitive and wherever possible, non-toxic.

History:

Just a few years ago twotonmax was a small part of a rambling industrial workshop involved in the manufacture of generator equipment. Although its proportions seem generous for its current use, it was woefully inadequate for bulky items' daily movements – sometimes as big as shipping containers. Once the massive engineering business had vacated the building in favour of wide roads and high clearance, the building that remained was able to tell a long story of hard work.

By looking at the array of columns and beams, the patchwork of brick and concrete floors, and the piecemeal arrangement of driveways and overhead cranes, it was possible to track changes over time and understand the chapters of the building's life.

In the process of resurrecting functional spaces from the industrial chaos that had evolved seemingly without a plan, one area immediately stood apart. Beneath a thick layer of diesel soot, ignoring the distraction of brackets, shelving units, and decades of redundant plumbing conduits and electrical wires, was a relatively unmolested gem. Cleaning, careful removal of clutter and the addition of modern infrastructure have all occurred without significant disruption to the original building. Wherever possible, materials have been recycled and redeployed to new use, so they're still part of the evolutionary story.

The area now occupied by Topomax was initially built around 1910-1920. During its century of working life it has housed a company that manufactured ship's boilers, then general welding/boiler making, then heavy industrial roller shutters, and finally the generator business. During each period the building was modified to suit the work of the day. Large pulleys, beautifully detailed in steel and laminated timber, hang overhead as a reminder of a time when enormous engines drove canvas belts, that in turn gave motive power to equipment in the workshop.

When electricity became available the travelling overhead crane was added to the mix. Its scarred metal and elegantly efficient designs were an important influence on the venue's style and tone. The ever-present spectre of the yellow crane, spanning the entire space and waiting patiently to be called into action, left no doubt the forum should be named in its honour.

The Food Quality and Quantity

Probably the biggest concern for people choosing a cocktail style event is the food. Not just the quality, but more importantly, the quantity of food served. This is a genuine concern, as we have all left cocktail functions and gone straight to McDonald's on the way home. We guarantee that this will never occur at our cocktail functions. The other concern with food is Quality and variety. No one does it better. Our menus are designed to appeal to a broad cross-section of people and are created using only the freshest of ingredients.

The Story of The Savoy

After an extensive refurbishment, The Savoy Hotel on Little Collins has reunited with its rich heritage. The building has a vibrant history of owners, events and famous patronage. It has had many incarnations, from its origins in the 1880s to its Art Deco reincarnation as The Alexander Hotel in the 1920s, to its time as Melbourne's iconic Savoy Plaza in the 1960s.

Situated opposite Southern Cross Station on Spencer Street, the building originally opened as Alexander's Family Hotel in 1866. Charles Alexander designed a classically detailed Victorian architectural building reflective of the era, across three-levels. In 1926, new owner James Richardson lavished £300,000 on the structure and another £50,000 on furniture and fittings in an American inspired 20th-century refurbishment.

Coupled with the vision of his design partner Leslie M Perrott, the Hotel Alexander was the first Australian hotel equipped with ensuite bathrooms and temperature-controlled rooms. On 31 January 1928, Premier Hogan officially opened the remodelled 200-room Hotel Alexander. Leslie M. Perrott, went on to design the Chevron Hotel, and Hotel Australia, which became the social epicentre of Melbourne in the 1940s.

The Federal Hotel group bought the Alexander Hotel in 1951 for £450,000, renaming it the Savoy-Plaza. Albert Argenti – maître d' – became renowned in Melbourne over the next decade, hosting a who's who of international show business including Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole and Ella Fitzgerald. Several famous Australians, including John Farnham, Rolf Harris and the Seekers, began their careers there. Frank Sinatra, performing at Festival Hall, was a guest, as were Ava Gardner, Fred Astaire and Anthony Perkins during the filming of 'On the Beach'.

The Victorian Government bought the Savoy Hotel in 1974 and turned it into the Police Cadet Training Academy. In 1987 the Nauruan-owned company Spencer Investments bought it and spent $46 million restoring the Savoy Park Plaza Hotel to its former glory, reopening it in May 1991.

Toga Hospitality renamed it to the Vibe Savoy Hotel Melbourne in 2004. With a vision of returning this magnificent hotel to its former glory, TFE Hotels embarked on a multi-million-dollar refurbishment in 2018. Award-winning architects Woods Bagot have respectfully designed the lavish restoration of this remarkable building. Woods Bagot is famous for extraordinary hotels world-wide and lifestyle and commercial projects such as Sydney's The Ivy complex and Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, and the contemporary aesthetic has returned this heritage building to its authentic history.

Renaming the hotel to The Savoy Hotel on Little Collins, Melbourne, the hotel reopened under the TFE Hotels Collection banner in November 2018. Each of these beautiful discovery hotels has a sense of story, place and purpose. This magnificent hotel will reclaim its position as a grand hotel of Melbourne, as it was when it opened in 1928 to be known as the most desirable stay in the heart of this fascinating city.

MELBOURNE'S GRAND HERITAGE HOTEL

The Windsor is Australia's most loved and renowned grand hotel, pre-dating The Savoy in London, The Plaza and The Waldorf Astoria in New York, The Ritz in Paris, and Raffles Hotel in Singapore. Established in 1883, it combines the classic beauty and architecture of the Victorian age with the graciousness of that bygone era.

Located across the stately Parliament House and next to the famous Princess Theatre, The Windsor is only steps away from Melbourne's luxury boutiques, theatres, laneways and Chinatown, with the picturesque Treasury, Fitzroy and Carlton Gardens a short walk from our doorstep.

On June 3 1923, with renovations complete, the hotel hosted a luncheon attended by His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales. In honour of this occasion, the hotel has appropriately renamed The Windsor.

The Windsor has been a home away from home for many famous Australians during their stay in Melbourne. Former Prime Minister Sir Robert Menzies kept Suite 306 at The Windsor for many years; it is now known as the Sir Robert Menzies Suite in his honour. Notable international guests included members of the English cricket team, who were frequent guests at the hotel, despite patriotic local factory workers' efforts to disrupt their sleep by 'accidentally' knocking over the empty milk churns in the laneway.

Stars from the world of film and theatre have always been drawn to the elegance and style of The Windsor. Sir Laurence and Lady Olivier (Vivien Leigh) stayed during their 1948 season at the Princess Theatre; Sir Robert Helpmann was introduced to the hotel as a child and regularly remained throughout his life. Celebrated opera performer Emma Calve occupied a suite during her tour of Australia in 1910, and Barry Humphries and Dame Edna Everage are regular guests whenever they are in town.

Keith Michell once made a late-night request for the collected works of Shakespeare, which was promptly fulfilled when a set was found on display in the lobby; Meryl Streep set up a personal gym in her accommodation during the filming of Evil Angels. Renowned actors Sir Anthony Hopkins and Gregory Peck have occupied Suites at The Hotel Windsor whilst in Melbourne, as has a sporting legend, Muhammad Ali.

Weddings & Celebrations

BEGIN YOUR HAPPILY EVER AFTER AT THE WINDSOR

Our grand hotel has played host to countless weddings over its 137 years, charming couples with its old-world romance and classic grandeur. From your red-carpet arrival to honeymoon departure, our Windsor Wedding Planners look forward to celebrating your special day with you and turning it into an unforgettable one.

CAFE

LITTLE HENRI FOOD AND DRINKS.

Little Henri is not really so little…..but a relatively spacious place built as a nod to the balance between old and new that Melbourne is so well known for.

Little Henri pays tribute to local history in its name, settings, and design.

Until 1994 Thornbury was a part of the lovely City of Northcote and, in a nod to that shared history, Little Henri is named after Sir Stafford Henry Northcote himself — or 'Little Henri', as we liked to call him. He was the 3rd Governor-General of Australia (1903-1908) and was dedicated to, and influenced Melbourne's development and culture.

Right at the top end of High Street, at the junction of Dundas and High Streets and Plenty Road, look for a corner where little silhouettes of a boy run along the walls. Here, you have found Little Henri. Once inside, space opens up like you wouldn't expect from the street; high ceilings, a beautiful round counter, and a backyard that is just asking to be brunched in making this cafe unsuspectingly sizeable.

DESIGN: The cafe is a converted bank and still has the original safe door. It's exterior, and the interior reflects rustic and distressed finishes and yet is trendy, sleek and sophisticated in its simplistic design. An interior with deep textures complementing a mix of earthy furnishings combined with natural lighting, and an exterior of a covered courtyard, as well as a large leafy open courtyard, emanates a welcoming and relaxed ambience.

FUNCTIONS

LITTLE HENRI FUNCTIONS.

User – Friendly: While honouring the past, Little Henri also ensures that it caters for the trends and needs of the present by providing excellent food, drinks and service. It is all these features combined that make Little Henri not only a great eatery by day but have become a popular function venue by night to celebrate all sorts of occasions, including weddings. So whether you are in the mood for a quiet and relaxed coffee/meal break, or a get together with friends, or a meeting with colleagues, or to celebrate a significant occasion, Little Henri is the place for you.

Little Henri's open and flowing spaces can accommodate a myriad of functions ranging from formal sit down dinners to casual contemporary standing affairs. Whether your process is for a wedding, an anniversary, a milestone birthday, or a unique corporate event to impress your client and/or reward your staff, Little Henri has the setting, the expertise and the passion for making your experience one to remember and feel proud about.

The venue can accommodate up to 70 people for a formal sit down affair, and up to 150 people for a stand-up experience. Functions can be held in the central interior dining room, the covered courtyard, and/or the upper open courtyard. Utilising all areas is an ideal and magical option – starting your celebration with canapés and champagne in the yard followed by a selection of entrées, mains, and desserts in the dining ending the night with supper dishes around the bar.

We have food and drinks packages from which to choose. We also specialise in putting together individual packages tailored to your specific needs.

Welcome To Rupert On Rupert

Rupert on Rupert has come a long way since it first opened its oversized industrial doors in early 2015. An original passion project of husband and wife team Ric and Mali Corinaldi, this lovingly converted warehouse restaurant stakes its claim proudly in the hospitality nexus of inner-city Collingwood. Ric's dream was to create a space that could exist in any city in the world, with an aesthetic that would entice both community gatherings and romantic dates alike; a sanctuary that guests would long to return to again and again.

While Rupert continues to project the mysterious allure of an undiscovered backstreet gem, once inside, space is anything but unassuming. Full to the brim with an ever-evolving indoor garden, quirky vintage furniture, polished concrete floors, and handsome alchemy of steel, copper and glass, Rupert hints at exclusivity but delivers an ambient and sun-drenched warmth. The venue's combination of cosy corners, communal tables and expansive spaces accommodates a whole spectrum of memorable moments, from intimate to ample in size, from personal to business in nature.

We hope you enjoy your time with us.

Ceremony

The verdant beauty of Rupert's plant-filled Conservatory offers a truly breathtaking backdrop for a wedding ceremony. Evocative of an evergreen Cathedral, the length and grandeur of the space makes for the perfect wedding aisle.

With a transparent ceiling reminiscent of an outdoor tavern, waiting guests can bask in the beautiful seasonal shifts in light throughout the year, whilst staying fully protected from the unpredictable Melbourne weather.

Couples are welcome to engage a recommended florist to customise a bespoke floral arbour or wedding arch, or simply take advantage of the abundance of potted trees and plants that Rupert has in the house to create a personalised ceremony space.

With no extra fee to have the ceremony on site, couples are encouraged to enjoy the convenience of hosting both their ceremony and reception within the one venue, removing the need to travel from one location to the next through heavy traffic and risk breaking the magical spell that is cast during this special occasion.

The Bride and Groom (or any combination of the two) can rest assured that all expressions of love are more than welcome at Rupert on Rupert. Couples can trust their experience will be all-inclusive and hassle-free, coordinated with equal parts exuberance and expertise by co-owner and Wedding Manager Mali. An incurable romantic, with a passion for creative collaboration, Mali chaperones her clients towards an experience that is as personally meaningful and unique as possible. Whether all the bells and whistles are called for, or something a little less traditional appeals, Mali and the Rupert team ensure excellence is delivered with heart.

 The Cocktail Lounge, nestled to the very back of the venue, is an unexpected treasure. With its own fully stocked bar showcasing a premium spirit selection, this is the perfect haven for the wedding party to steel the nerves with a pre-ceremony whiskey, or share an espresso martini or two before dancing.

Private Wedding Venue & Hotel in Melbourne

As you plan one of the most memorable events of your life – your wedding day – you'll want to make sure it's an unforgettable experience. Everything from the time and date through to the photography and the reception plays its own part towards creating a day full of romance and celebration. One of the most critical points of consideration for your wedding day is the location. When deciding on venue hire in North Melbourne, you want a place that not only looks breathtakingly stunning but also accommodates everything from the needs of the bride and groom through to the city's dynamic weather patterns. If you're looking for gorgeous wedding ceremony locations in Melbourne that will make your day perfect, arrange an appointment to view Overnewton Castle.

North Melbourne's Diamond – A Picture Perfect Wedding Location

Located in the suburb of Keilor, north-west of the CBD, Overnewton Castle is one of the most famous mansion wedding venues Melbourne has to offer. It's highly favoured for its stunning indoor and outdoor wedding photography opportunities, where you can have access to our historic mansion built in the 1840s as well as our beautiful gardens situated on acres of land. Our exclusive non-denominational chapel makes for a perfect indoor location for your ceremony, or if you prefer an outdoor ceremony, our picturesque English garden parties make for a beautiful alternative. All your wedding venue hire needs are catered to at this one convenient, picture-perfect location.

Extensive Range of Function Centre Opportunities

Overnewton Castle also operates as a function centre for a range of events, including high tea, christenings, corporate functions, milestone birthdays and more. We also provide high tea afternoons throughout the year; places are always in demand, so book early.

A Brief History Lesson

William Taylor built Overnewton castle in 1849. The Scotsman bought 13,000 acres of rich grazing land just west of the Keilor township. Taylor made a simple single-storey bluestone colonial-style homestead. This consisted of 6 rooms with large shuttered windows and wide verandahs. The homestead was positioned on a gentle slope overlooking Keilor and afforded extensive views of the surrounding countryside.

During the 1850's Keilor became an essential and busy stopover for travellers on their way to the Victorian Goldfields. This included the building of 2 schools, a new bridge and a new hotel.

It was not until William Taylor returned from a trip to Scotland in 1859 that the grandeur of his dreams became apparent. He set about turning the functional colonial homestead into a miniature Scottish Baronial Castle. The Stately two-story wing was added, along with the bluestone Dairy & Butcher Shop and the Private Billiard room now used as a chapel for wedding ceremonies.

Overnewton is built in the Victorian Tudor style, inspired by 16th century English & Scottish architecture. The Scottish baronial style is characterised by its rough-textured masonry, steeped pitched roofs and overhanging battlement corner turrets. The candle snuffer roofs show the influence of French architecture. The bluestone walls were quarried on the estate and rendered with a yellow gravel and stucco finish. Above the master bedroom's large windows is the Taylor family crest – a mailed arm and fist enclosing a dagger and the motto "Semper Fidelis" (always faithful). Above several other windows are the carved initials of HT, T 1859 and WT.

After the completion of this wing, the homestead consisted of over 35 rooms including seven bedrooms (the master room included a small circular room and a dressing room) schoolroom, library, drawing room, two kitchens, five servants rooms and the Billiard room. There are still many original features such as tiles in the bathrooms, claw foot bath and the old IXL wood stove in the kitchen. Several outbuildings on the estate include a bluestone butchery and dairy, lamp room, boot room, coach house, stables, woolshed, shearing sheds and machine shed.

William Taylor passed away in 1903 aged 85 and six months later is wife Helen aged 71 passed away. Their eldest son William Henry continued to manage the estate until he passed away in 1939 aged 81 and his wife Beatrice in 1948. The estate remained in the Taylor family until 1959.

The Carr Family purchased Overnewton in 1959. They raised their three children on the property using part of it as a family home, and the downstairs rooms were used as a wedding reception centre.

In 1975 Dr. L. J. Norton purchased Overnewton Estate to raise his own family on the property. Since then there have been many upgrades and changes to the property including mains water in 1976, a fire in 1980 burnt the old timber stables. Dr Norton purchased back 6 acres of land which included a drystone wall and some of the original outbuildings.

The years have been kind to Overnewton, today it remains much the same as when it was initially built. Hidden away amongst the old trees, it has seen many changes throughout the years. Gone are the days of horse and carriages, gaslight and servants, but the old world grace and charm along with the elegance, grandeur and atmosphere of a bygone era still remain. Having been restored over the years and an elegant dining room added to the estate, this is definitely a hidden treasure.

Overnewton Castle has been host to thousands of weddings since 1961 and is one of the leading wedding venues in Melbourne. With open fireplaces for the cold winter months and over 4 acres of a pristine English garden, it's a picturesque backdrop for a castle wedding in Melbourne.

Marnong Estate Wedding Venue Melbourne 

Marnong Estate Wedding Venue Melbourne

Welcome to Morning Estate

Situated only 15 minutes from Melbourne airport and 35 minutes from Melbourne CBD, Marnong Estate has something for everyone. From boutique accommodation in our Historic Homestead to private dining in Bankvale Run restaurant, or from weddings to conferences and special events – it's all here for you to enjoy with us.

A world-class tourism facility

Morning Estate North of Melbourne

Morning Estate is a new community tourism project located in Melbourne's northern region, just 15 minutes from Melbourne Airport and 35 minutes from Melbourne CBD. This exciting initiative has created a world-class tourism facility whilst focusing on sustainability and protecting the rich history of the Homestead and its location. Reviving the existing Homestead and establishing an integrated heritage resort facility, vineyard, brewery, and agribusiness is contributing to the local community by providing an authentic cultural and historical experience. The first of its kind in the region.

The Homestead has been restored to its former glory and now provides a beautiful escape for our guests. The original Marnong Homestead was constructed in sections over some decades.

The rear part of the Homestead, comprising two long rectangular buildings with individual hip roofs, is the earliest part of the building and is constructed of roughly squared, undressed bluestone blocks laid in even courses. The long buildings are positioned side-by-side with a corridor in between, the whole running transversely across the rear of the rest of the Homestead.

The western-most structure of the rear section is lower in height and possibly housed the kitchen and other outbuildings. The second structure, now almost in the centre of the present Homestead, possibly incorporated the living and bedrooms. The front half of the Homestead, which faces east, is substantially built of brick and is Victorian in styling with the front façade featuring pairs of windows on either side of a central door with a stained glass fanlight sidelights.

The roof to this front section is typically M-shaped, and the chimneys are also Victorian in styling. The front veranda may have continued initially down both sides of this front section but has been truncated on the south side and filled in on the north side at a later stage. At the south end of the adjacent older bluestone structure, there is also a faceted bay window, which would have been added at the same time as the front section.

BANKVALE RUN

The substantial rural holding is now known as Marnong, and once called Green Grove, started off as a portion of a run called Bank Vale, which was held in the 1840s by William John Turner Clarke.

In the early 1840s, the Scotch Company was no longer able to maintain the venture, and the run was subsequently taken over in early to mid-1841 by Clarke who quickly installed John Edols, a young overseer, in the vacated manager's hut. This was Clarke's first undertaking in a district where he was within less than two decades to own the freehold title to more than 100,000 acres. In the immediate area, however, by July 1841 he had installed his brother Lewis on the small Plover Plains run, which lay to the west of Bank Vale on the other side of the Deep Creek. And by the late 1840s, Clarke had taken over the Hill Head run which adjoined Plover Plains on the north.

The run they set up, Bank Vale, lay some twenty miles north of Melbourne, to the east of the Deep Creek (or Saltwater River), and just beyond the site of the future village of Mickleham. The land comprised undulating open pastures and was well suited for sheep. From such descriptions, it would appear that the present Marnong property is situated in what was the southwest part of this run.

The Bank Vale run itself was described as 'one of Clarke's most cherished stations and his only home in the Sunbury District. It was the address to which Hoddle wrote a letter in July 1850 informing Clarke that part of the Hill Head run had been leased to Captain James Pearson.

Today, after serving multiple uses, Marnong Farm has been restored to its former glory. Morning Estate now hosts the historic Homestead with a provincial feel and fittings which takes you a step back in time. Viewing the surrounds and walking the farm grounds, you can really soak in the history and reflect upon the use of the land.

Say 'I do'. At Marnong Estate

Offering a unique setting with endless possibilities and an incredible backdrop, your day will remain a wonderful memory for years to come. Our stunning locations include The Angliss Rooms with their panoramic views of the Macedon Ranges and other unique spaces, including The Shed for that more historical feel and our estate gardens.

Town Hall Broadmeadows Wedding Venue Melbourne

 

townhallbroadmeadows.com.au

393566700

Town Hall Broadmeadows has been a fixture in the landscape of Melbourne's north for more than half a century. In 2019, the venue underwent a multimillion-dollar makeover that has seen it enter a new and exciting chapter as a contemporary space for weddings, corporate, private and community events. 

A charming venue steeped in history

It was November 1964. The Beatles had just swept through Melbourne on their world tour, Dawn Fraser had won Olympic gold in the 100-metre freestyle for the third time in Tokyo, and Ron Barassi had captained Melbourne just weeks before to a thrilling Grand Final win over Collingwood. In Melbourne's northern outskirts, the burgeoning suburb of Broadmeadows was facing unprecedented growth, as baby boomers chased the dream of a new home in the aftermath of the Second World War.

In the 20 years prior, more than 15,000 people had moved into the suburb - most spurred on by the promise of a spacious precast concrete house on a large block, where they could raise a young family. To meet that growth, the former City of Broadmeadows embarked on an ambitious Town Hall development. 

Built at the cost of £450,000, the Town Hall was one of the largest buildings of its type in Victoria at the time, heralding an exciting future for Melbourne's north.

When former Opposition Leader Arthur Calwell officially opened the new venue to much fanfare, he described it as a magnificent hall that had no equal in Melbourne. It was front-page news across Melbourne's newspapers, and those who had the courage and foresight to embark on the project were recognised and congratulated.

Over the next 50 years, the Town Hall grew into an iconic landmark for the community. From weddings and debutante balls, gala dinners, cocktail parties, school dances, concerts, parties and an AC/DC gig – you name it, the Town Hall has seen it.

We've honoured the building's unique history by restoring key architectural design features while transforming our interior to provide a vibrant and contemporary space for today. The venue's grand façade, iconic red brickwork, floor-to-ceiling windows and mountain grey gum floors have been painstakingly restored by hand. 

A space for every occasion

The Main Hall 

Catering for up to 450 people seated and 800 people standing, the Main Hall can be tailored to host a wide range of private, business and community events. The expansive space features original details of the building, including floor-to-ceiling windows, mountain grey gum timber floors and a balcony, which is accessible from the second floor. 

Space is supported with the latest audio and visual technology - including state-of-the-art presentation screens, lighting and speakers - plus scalable dancefloor and staging options to bring every event to life.  

The Blue Lounge 

The Blue Lounge provides a touch of glamour to the Town Hall. Sophisticated and atmospheric, it offers a place to celebrate in style. Ideal for events catering for 50 to 100 guests, the lounge is adorned with blue velvet drapes and original red brick walls, a beautifully restored upright piano, and a large suspended timber sculpture by artist Robbie Rowlands.

Located on the second floor, it provides direct access to the balcony and a bird's eye view of the Main Hall. 

The Bar 

Ideal for arrival and pre-dinner drinks or events catering for 100 to 150 guests, The Bar is located on the first floor and provides direct entry to the Main Hall. Enjoy a wide selection of wine, beer, spirits and non-alcoholic beverages before an event in the main hall; or book out The Bar for a more relaxed celebration.

The Gallery 

The Gallery is one of Hume City Council's dedicated visual arts venues showcasing both local and international talent. It presents an annual program of innovative and engaging arts, cultural and heritage exhibitions. The Gallery offers a unique backdrop for pre-dinner drinks and functions catering for 150 people. 

Meeting Rooms 

Four meeting rooms, catering for groups of six to 20 people are located on the first and second floors. With presentation and teleconferencing capability, Wi-Fi connectivity and the latest in audiovisual technology, they are ideal both for meetings or as breakout spaces during business events. Available for hire seven days a week.

How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Venue

Talk to a Planner First

Yes, before you start looking at spaces. "Planners are much more familiar with the capabilities of a space, the layout, and the time and items you'll need to really transform it," says Alliey Kline-Weichelt, lead planner and CEO of Sash & Bow in Green Bay, Wisconsin. If there's a creative way to make it unique or a quirk about the space that could make your vision hard to accomplish, your planner will know.

Choose a Venue That Aligns With Your Vision

"This might seem obvious, but seek out venues that fit the aesthetic you have in mind, says Kait Costanti, co-owner and creative director of Bash in Bozeman, Montana. "If you're planning a modern wedding, look at art galleries, well-designed restaurant spaces, or warehouses. On the flip side, a wedding incorporating more natural elements works well with outdoor venues such as parks, backyards, and ranches. Choosing a venue that fits in with (and enhances) your theme will enable your wedding to feel more connected to the space."

"Knowing how many guests you're expecting to invite before you go looking at venues will help save you from headaches and heartaches down the road," says Holly Patton Olsen, wedding planner and owner of Seattle's Perfectly Posh Events. "If you choose a venue that is too small for your guest list and more guests RSVP 'yes' than you can fit in the space, you might be in a tough situation." Couples often underestimate how many people they will invite (or how many their parents will want to add), so have that conversation early to know what you're really working with.

"This will also help you break down your budget, as some costs are very dependent on the number of people you're inviting," Olsen says.

Meet the facility director

When you visit the venue, make sure you understand who your go-to person will be for all the logistics of your wedding. You will want to see if you are comfortable working with this person. You can have the perfect venue, but if you are not confident in the staff, your wedding can be adversely affected.

Remember Your Budget

"It's more than just how much renting the space will cost," says Kline-Weichelt, since venues with in-house catering (like hotels) will charge a price-per-plate. "Décor and floral design will also drive the cost up." Know how much your total budget is, as well as approximately what your design will cost to execute. If adding that on top of the cost of using the space blows your budget out of the water, you'll either need to scale back your design or look at more affordable spaces. Adds Olsen, "Break down your overall budget by category, prioritizing more funds for vendors that are a higher priority.

If you select your venue first, and then realize it's more than you should have allocated, it's an uphill battle to stay within your budget when you still have a dozen other people to hire."

Stay True to Yourselves

"With the influx of Pinterest weddings, a lot of couples choose venues based off of the style of a wedding they fell in love with online," says Costanti. "But it's important to ask yourselves what feels authentic to you two as a couple, and to choose a space and a design that's a representation of who you are." And remember that, while a venue might have looked gorgeous with a different theme or design scheme, it may not be the perfect canvas for yours.
