Wedding Reception

Perfect Place: Summit Restaurant & Bar


Looking for the perfect wedding venue? We quizzed QB readers Shanah and Lachlan on why they chose Summit Restaurant & Bar for their reception and why they loved it!

What we loved about the venue…

The city views were picture perfect, which provided a beautiful backdrop for the romance and ambience of the day. We also loved that we could hold the ceremony and reception in one location.

The food & service were…

Delicious! We had so many compliments from our guests that they loved the food. We organised canapés followed by a three course meal so no one went home hungry. The service on the evening was professional and friendly.

The best photo locations at Summit Restaurant & Bar are…

Outside on the grassed area overlooking Brisbane city, and the Summit lookout. The Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens are also a short drive away, which is where we held our bridal party photo shoot.

We decorated with…

Fresh flowers from Flowerlovers. Our bridal party were dressed in neutral tones, so the fresh flowers on the tables and in the bouquets added a splash of colour for our vintage spring theme.

Three words to describe the venue:

Romantic, charming, picturesque

What off-site accommodation was close by?

The Summit is located approximately 7km from Brisbane’s CBD, so there is plenty of accommodation available a short taxi ride from the location. We stayed at the Sofitel Hotel Brisbane who offered a romantic accommodation package for our wedding night.
