Dream-day dreaming – find your ideal wedding venue at Brisbane Powerhouse
Planning your dream wedding takes a lot of work – and finding the right venue is one of the most difficult aspects. When it comes to choosing an ideal wedding venue in our great city, quite a few factors can dictate when and where you wed. Location, style and guest capacity are key deciding factors (aside from a small detail we call budget, of course), but you also don’t want to choose a stock-standard venue. That’s where Brisbane Powerhouse comes in. Combining traditional with contemporary, the iconic repurposed tram power station isn’t just a place to hang riverside while enjoying weekend entertainment – it also offers a variety of unique and inspiring spaces for couples to tie the knot.
From the history-rich brick walls coloured with graffiti to its heritage-listed status, there’s something undeniably alluring about Brisbane Powerhouse. Whether you’re dreaming of a low-key dinner or a glamorous cocktail and canapé soiree, this industrial wedding venue offers spaces that combine rustic and romantic. For couples looking to take advantage of a chic indoor/outdoor space with a touch of charm and intimacy, the Riverbend Terrace offers a spacious covered deck with sweeping views of the river, perfect for family affairs or smaller cocktail parties of up to 75 patrons. If you have a slightly bigger guest list, The Rooftop Terrace can fit up to 15o people in a cocktail setting and boasts heritage-listed graffiti walls, bay windows, modern industrial furnishings and a covered deck with some of the best river views in New Farm.
For betrothed couples with a flair for the dramatic, The Turbine Platform offers a large, cathedral-like space located next to the main foyer and (very conveniently) the bar, which can hold up to 175 guests. If you have always dreamed of an outdoor wedding (or you have a guest list to rival Harry and Meghan) then The Performance Lawn’s expansive lush greenery and waterfront outlook is the way to go. The huge grounds can accommodate a large-scale marquee, so if the weather doesn’t permit, you’ll always have a chic (and dry) back-up plan.
If you’ve still got plenty to check off your to-do list, Brisbane Powerhouse, along with some of the best industry suppliers, will even take the stress out of styling and catering – think stylised ceremony sets, enchanting florals, long tables adorned with candelabras and striking modern furnishings. For the food affair, you and your guests can dine on delicious eats curated by the venue’s top-notch catering partner Wine & Dine’m, winner of the ABIA QLD Wedding Caterer of the Year in 2018 and 2019. Now you have one last thing to figure out … what cake flavour is tastiest?
