There’s something so romantic, so magical, so eternally chic about a stunning chandelier. To bring that golden glow to your Queensland wedding, we’ve found 7 venues with a little extra sparkle.

1. Cloudland

Location: Fortitude Valley

Brisbane’s fabulous urban oasis Cloudland is known for its bold, creative, and fantastical interiors — including plenty of incredible lighting. But look a little closer, and there’s more to explore with Cloudland’s private function spaces. Fall down the rabbit hole and discover the Alice Room, home to the venue’s biggest chandelier: it’s a whopping three metres wide! Or head to the Heritage Room, where several elegant chandeliers enhance the pressed metal ceiling for a more moody, deco feel.

2. Braeside at Gin House Creek Estate

Location: Gold Coast

Just minutes from the Gold Coast beaches, you’ll find two glorious acres of manicured gardens and wedding-ready spaces at Braeside at Gin House Creek Estate. The Pavilion is the property’s latest addition, adorned with several opulent chandeliers to illuminate the sandstone feature wall and luxe bar. Perfect for those elegant country vibes. The bonus? You can say ‘I do’ in Braeside’s darling onsite chapel, complete with arched windows framing garden and creek views, traditional wooden pews, and its own chandelier.


Location: Brisbane

Looking for a showstopper? The state’s most spectacular ‘chandelier’ can be found riverside at the Queensland Art Gallery (QAG). Ai Weiwei’s Boomerang light installation is a breathtaking sight, comprising 270,000 crystal pieces that shimmer above the Watermall’s central water feature. Incredibly, this space and its world-class artworks can become your own private wedding playground and reception backdrop. Just imagine the photos!

4. Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort & Spa

Location: Gold Coast

While it’s hard to beat the sparkle of those ocean waves, the Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort & Spa isn’t short on dazzle in their Mirage Grand Ballroom. Perfect for party-sized guest lists, the ballroom features high, ornate ceilings and magnificent crystal chandeliers — with a pre-reception terrace overlooking the property’s iconic lagoons. Step straight onto the sand for your photocall (we’re talking direct beach access) then retreat to five-star luxury and bask in that newlywed glow.

5. Rothwell’s Bar & Grill

Location: Brisbane

If you fancy a peek at new Brisbane CBD venue Rothwell’s, just follow the glow of its gorgeous chandeliers. They can be seen from the street! The snug banquettes and glittering light display are very enticing, but engaged couples should also delve below street level to find the intimate wine room and atmospheric basement cellar – both available for lovers of good food and wine and intimate celebrations.

6. White Chapel Kalbar

Location: Scenic Rim

Dreaming of a chapel in a charming country town? With chandeliers? Look no further than White Chapel Kalbar, tucked away in the Scenic Rim township of Kalbar (just over an hour west of Brisbane). Their chapel features romantic iron chandeliers as well as original timber floors and a beautiful back-lit altar. But wait, there’s more! Through the barn doors of the property’s Black Hall, you’ll also find a rustic-style ‘antler’ chandelier presiding over the cosy Sunday School-turned-event space.

7. The Warehouse

Location: Brisbane

When you have seven-metre, loft-style ceilings to play with, lighting goes next level! Unique Brisbane venue The Warehouse (circa 1905) features glittering chandeliers as well as strings of Edison bulbs and light-filled arched windows to illuminate its beautiful heritage features (love that exposed brick). Bonus: the ceiling beams also lend themselves to styling additional chandeliers for that little extra magic. Chasing starlight? Slip up to the private rooftop terrace for golden-hour Champagne, sweeping Fortitude Valley vistas, and first-star wishes.
