Perfect Place: Moda Events Portside


Looking for the perfect wedding venue? We quizzed newlyweds Scott and Alana on why they chose Moda Events Portside for their wedding reception and why they loved it!

Moda Events Portside

What we loved about the venue:

A true beauty, the Moda Portside Riverside venue allows you to create the wedding you want. Being a sophisticated blank canvas, it can be tailored to suit any kind of wedding, large or small. The addition of an outdoor area overlooking the river was a major drawcard. It was important to us to have a relaxed yet classy event.

The food and service were…

 The food was simply delicious. The service provided was impeccable. From the moment we booked the venue until the very night. Moda were always easily contactable and very personable throughout the entire lead up, but most importantly, Moda staff ensured every part of our night ran seamlessly. We didn’t have to worry about a thing.

The best photo locations at Moda Events are…

anywhere around Hamilton Portside is nice, particularly Newfarm Park, and the parklands on McArthur Ave.

We decorated with…

Candles, doilies and flower boxes with beautiful floral arrangements as the centerpieces (thanks to Kelly from Bella Blooms Floral Designs) for each table. Our overall theme was vintage class with touches of rustic pieces. All hired from Amanda at Adorn Event Hire. A lovely focal point of our reception was a dessert table styled and set up by Bec from Style my Celebration. We couldn’t have asked for more from our selected vendors.

Three words to describe the venue…

Spacious, high-end and elegant.

What off-site accommodation was close by?

There are a range of hotels and motels around the Hamilton precinct. We decided to stay the night in the city as this was a short 9 minute car drive.
