Getting married is a pretty big deal. Some would even go so far as to say that it's one of the most important days of your life! But unless you're a wedding planner (or really, really good friends with one), navigating the tricky world of wedding planning can be a struggle. To hopefully make your experience a little better, we've put together a list of our favourite wedding vendors across Brisbane (and beyond) to make planning your special day that little bit easier.

Victoria Park | Herston

When it comes to the perfect wedding venue, you really can’t beat the wide-open gardens of Victoria Park! Surrounded by ancient trees, parklands and city views, Victoria Park offers couples six unique wedding venues as well as private bars and exclusive outdoor decks. Whether it’s the Victorian charm of the Ballroom, the grand and spectacular Marquee, or their stunning new venue, The Courtyard, you’re ensured unbeatable views of Brisbane City while still being in a convenient location for your guests. Still not convinced? They were recently awarded Most Romantic Wedding Venue at the 2018 Lux Global Wedding Excellence Awards!

 

Summit Restaurant & Bar | Mt Coot-tha

With panoramic views of Brisbane and beyond, Summit Restaurant is one of Brisbane’s most iconic wedding venues. With all-inclusive wedding packages designed to cater to all your needs, they make it as easy as possible for couples to plan their special day. Of course, they still want your special day to feel like “you”, so their friendly and professional Events Team is excited to go above-and-beyond to ensure your wedding is what you’ve always dreamed it would be. In fact, their Events Team was even voted Queensland’s Best Function Coordinator at the 2018 ABIA Awards!

The Refinery | Newstead

The Refinery is owned & operated by a husband-and-wife duo who understands how difficult it can be for couples to plan their special day. With a spectacular 12m long marble bar, a private garden courtyard (that doubles as the perfect space for post-ceremony drinks and canapés!), and industrial-chic finishings, it’s not hard to understand why The Refinery is garnering a reputation as one of Queensland’s most loved event spaces. The Refinery was born out of a desire to offer couples a minimalist warehouse space that is equally stunning as a blank canvas or when jazzed up with your personal styling touches. To make planning your wedding as seamless a process as possible, they offer a full range of services, including amazing dining and drinks packages courtesy of sister-venue, Rogue Bistro – this ain’t no average wedding food! By providing a bespoke wedding venue that can provide everything from a stunning wet weather option to all the finishing touches (including beautiful crockery and on-trend furniture), this spectacular and versatile wedding venue is making it easier than ever for couples to create their dreams wedding.

Brisbane Racing Club | Ascot

Just picture this: your special day has finally arrived. All the planning with your dedicated wedding planner (courtesy of Brisbane Racing Club) has paid off. And now you are exchanging your vows with your forever-love under the stunning branches of the iconic St Leger Fig Tree. Sounds dreamy, doesn’t it? As one of Brisbane’s most picturesque destinations, Brisbane Racing Club offers their couples a range of stunning venues to choose from, as well as world-class chefs, personalised wedding packages, a dedicated wedding planner, and tailored menus.

When you want to add an extra touch of personality to your wedding, it helps to have a Rolodex of creative businesses you can rely on. Below are some of our favourite vendors to add extra delightful moments of joy for your wedding.

A custom-made LED tube light is exactly the final touch your special day needs.

Brisbane gal through and through, Siobhan is an avid cider-enthusiast and a keen believer in brunch (house deposit be damned). When she's not at the beach, she can be spotted lusting after makeup she can't afford, re-watching The Office (the US version, obviously) or annoying her friends with her insane astrology theories (she's an Aquarius, FYI).
