Wedding Reception

Perfect Place: Why Jade + Andy loved The Joinery


When fun-loving Jade and Andy started looking for a reception venue they wanted something they could put their own stamp on. Cue The Joinery.

After tying the knot in a heart-warming ceremony, Jade and Andy joined their guests for a night of dancing, laughter and amazing food. Adorning the space with stunning hanging florals and festoon lights, the two complemented the venue’s on-trend industrial style.

Why did you choose this venue?

“It ticked every box for the warm, industrial feel we wanted. Penny and Maria from The Joinery were an absolute joy to work with and made our wedding planning seamless and stress-free.”


Did the menu influence your decision?

“One of the big selling points of The Joinery was that they designed our menu to suit us. The menu was served predominately as share plates – who would have thought of Moreton Bay bug served on a peppered macaron?”


Tell us about your decorations…

“We didn’t need to do much with the space as it was already perfect for what we wanted. We had strands of festoon lights over the ceiling, hanging florals and bulbs above our bridal table, floral arrangements in concrete planters and pillar candles on the tables, plus a fabulous ‘Let’s Dance’ sign as the backdrop for our dance floor.”


What’s the most unique thing about the venue?

“We loved how it was an empty but beautiful space that you could really customise to suit your vision – the team at The Joinery did everything they could to execute this.”


Did the venue help you resolve any problems or challenges?

“We planned our wedding in four months, which meant I was quite specific with a lot of my requests, but nothing was too hard for The Joinery!”


What’s the best piece of advice the venue gave you?

“That our wedding day was about celebrating our love.”


What’s the one thing you’d tell other brides-to-be considering this venue?

“If you want to have complete control over the look and feel of your day (including the menu) and want to trust industry professionals to make it happen, choosing The Joinery is the best decision you’ll make.”


The most memorable feedback from your guests?

“None of our guests had attended an event at The Joinery so they were all wowed when they walked in. Many commented it was the most beautiful wedding they had attended.”


Your most precious memory of the day?

“Seeing the space in all its glory for the first time – everything was better than we could have anticipated.”
