My Big Day: A Peek Inside One Of Brisbane’s Most Picturesque Wedding Venues

It’s a nice day for a white wedding.

By Fiona Williams | 1st August 2019

As one of Brisbane’s most picturesque venues, Brisbane Racing Club has become a popular location for couples to tie the knot. Offering world-class chefs, personalised wedding packages, a dedicated wedding planner, tailored menus and of course the Heritage-listed grounds, this is a venue not to pass up for a budding bride.

To give you an idea of weddings at Brisbane Racing Club, we got a sneak peek into Rochelle and Zac’s special day and the story that got them to the altar. See our Q&A below from our one on one with Rochelle. Plus, check-out an extra bit of insider information on how BRC can create your special day.

How did he propose?

When we got the keys to our first home. He took the ring out of the mailbox while we were having photos taken with the ‘Sold’ sign.

Describe the location and why you chose it

We were drawn to the Tote Room at Brisbane Racing Club. It’s a beautiful heritage listed building with the tote windows and red bricks. We fell in love with it as soon as we saw it. I also loved the convenience of being able to have the ceremony and reception in the one location and this venue definitely had significance for Zac and I as this is the location where we kicked off our romance at Stereosonic in 2009.

Favourite moment?

When I was in the car and we were driving straight towards the ceremony. I remember the beginning of the day it all seemed so surreal. It wasn’t until we were driving down, and I saw all our friends and family, my future husband and my beautiful dogs standing there that I actually clicked that this was my wedding!
