WHAT WE LOVED ABOUT THE VENUE…
Both Old Government House and Room Three Sixty work seamlessly together as if they were in the same building. But the reality is you get the best of both worlds… old school charm meets new sophistication. The view from Room Three Sixty is truly breathtaking – the best in Brisbane!

THE FOOD AND SERVICE AT ROOM THREE SIXTY WERE…
Zen Catering are truly amazing. We chose the buffet which was a definite crowd pleaser. Everyone raved about the moreton bay bugs. And we also added the glazed ham and rolls for a late night supper treat which was well received by all. But the real gems were the staff – absolutely flawless.

THE BEST PHOTO LOCATIONS AT OLD GOVERNMENT HOUSE ARE…
Our photographer was amazing and decided that there was nowhere else we needed to go other than Old Government House and its surrounds. It offered everything we needed and it was a bonus for us girls cause we didn’t have to walk much in our heels!

WE DECORATED WITH…
Bridal Bliss provided the roof draping to help obtain my vision of classic glam. But my vision would never have come true without Simone from Gathered Blooms who did all the flowers, candles and styling set up on the day.

THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE THE VENUE…
Stunning, breathtaking, panoramic.

WHAT OFF-SITE ACCOMMODATION WAS CLOSE BY?
We chose to stay at Oaks Casino Towers. They offer great sized apartments for both the bridal party to get ready in and it’s only a short 500m stroll to Old Government House.
