Wedding Reception

Perfect Place: Brisbane Marriott Hotel


Looking for the perfect wedding venue? We chat with newlyweds Leigh and Thomas on why they chose the Brisbane Marriott Hotel for their wedding reception and why they loved it!

What we loved about the venue…

As it was, we wanted a central location that was sophisticated yet hassle free. The size of the space and the fireworks at midnight from the Pool Deck were fantastic.


Brisbane Marriott Hotel looked amazing when…

The floor to ceiling windows had amazing views. We especially liked the fact that we could have the the room set up to suit our needs, including a large dance floor.

The food was…

discreet and prompt. All meals were received at the times specified, they were beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. The best thing – no one had an empty glass for long!

Decorating tips?

Keep it simple and keep it suited to your personalities! We used white as our base colour then added blush hues and navy.

On the day…

Aly (Brisbane Marriott’s wedding coordinator) and her team were incredible, the attention to detail and care we received was one of the best gifts anyone could have given us – we were able to sit back and enjoy every second.


The best photo locations around Brisbane Marriott Hotel are…

We decided we wanted candid shots with nothing too posed. The shots around the cathedral and walking to the Marriott were perfect, we got the result we wanted. Our guests especially enjoyed… the relaxed, fun vibe, the culture and the dance floor. I’m also quite sure that at one stage nearly everybody was on the dance floor!


Three words about Brisbane Marriott Hotel…

Stress-free, seamless, classy.

I will always remember… how happy I felt, I was so relaxed and loved having our nearest and dearest all in the one room to witness our love. We wouldn’t change a thing.

The accommodation was great because…

everything was within a 500m radius. The package our guests were offered was excellent. The suite was spacious, guests had babysitters come to their room… for convenience it was a ten out of ten.
