Channel romance from a time gone by in a stunning riverside wedding venue built by passion.

Your love will go down in history when you say ‘I Do’ in this heritage listed and picturesque wedding venue by the river. A magnificent oasis in the middle of the bustling business district, their expertise, award-winning cuisine, renowned service and attention to detail will let the love flow.

Gracing Brisbane since 1889, Customs House is a monument to the Victorian Free Classical Style told in its grand colonnades and iconic dome that has managed to remain a major feature of the landscape over the years. You can be a part of it too, when you host your wedding ceremony on the River Terrace against the breathtaking backdrop of the Brisbane River, before heading into one of Customs House’s magnificent and bespoke reception spaces. There’s The Long Room with its cathedral ceiling, sculptured pillars and antique fixtures, The River Room that was once the Queen’s warehouse but now is a contemporary space flowing onto the terrace or The Sylvia Jones Boardroom – an exquisite showpiece fit with crystal chandeliers, marble fireplaces and an 1880’s heritage cedar table.

Feel the love from their approachable and skilled wedding and event coordinators as they provide a personalised approach all the way from your initial inquiry to the planning process and onto the dream day itself. There’s also a banquet supervisor to oversee your reception and a head waiter will be completely dedicated to you both for a day you will remember for all the right reasons.
