After all, these legends of the local catering scene dish up wedding goodness for some of Queensland’s dreamiest event spaces! But, we managed to lock in three unique choices your guests won’t stop raving about, from a sky-high CBD perch and a heritage-listed theatre to a landmark building worthy of a fairytale.

The View Finder: Room Three Sixty at QUT
Searching for city views? See Room Three Sixty, a sophisticated top-floor venue located within QUT (Queensland University of Technology) in the heart of the City Botanic Gardens/riverside precinct. You’ll have Old Government House right next door and sweeping views of the Brisbane River, Kangaroo Point Cliffs, and city skyline from your bridal table. Stellar.
We are lucky to work with so many amazing venues — and Room Three Sixty is among our favourites (if we MUST pick). Located at QUT, this is also one of our most versatile events spaces. It has amazing views of the city skyline through the floor-to-ceiling windows that are equally breathtaking during the day or night. This stylish, modern venue can host up to 320 guests and looks amazing decorated with sleek and subtle designs. With spaces on the premises to perform beautiful ceremonies, Room Three Sixty is one of the finest reception spaces in Brisbane.Samuel Matthews. Marketing Coordinator, Cuisine on Cue
The Grand Dame: The Old Museum
With its Byzantine-style turrets and swathes of glazed brick, The Old Museum (circa 1891) is one of Brisbane’s most spectacular buildings. Seriously, jaw-drop stuff. After a celebrated life as a concert venue (Dame Nellie Melba sang here) and a home to the Queensland Art Gallery and Queensland Museum collections, this richly atmospheric address now serves as a multi-faceted events space. Think everything from concerts and markets to gala dinners and weddings.
“There’s only one word I can think of that describes The Old Museum – brilliant. The exterior is absolutely stunning, and anybody hoping to have a big fairytale wedding NEEDS to see this space. From the outside it looks more like a European castle than a museum and the inside is filled with grand halls and smaller spaces to cater for every bold, big, brilliant idea you could ever dream up for your wedding day!”Samuel Matthews.

The Royal: The Princess Theatre
Built in 1888 in the romantic Italianate Revival style, The Princess Theatre reigns as Queensland’s long-standing theatre and has been lovingly reborn as a live venue and events space. This heritage-listed beauty lived many fascinating lives — as a picture theatre, public hall, secondhand shop, paper wholesaler, and even a church — before becoming a sister venue to The Tivoli and a charming choice for a Brisbane wedding.
The most recent addition to our venue partner list is the Princess Theatre. This luxurious venue was renovated and reopened in 2021 opening a new chapter on the theatre’s 133-year history, and the Princess is sparkling brighter than ever. There are five separate events spaces that you can hire, to cater for smaller functions or massive weddings. If you haven’t got this new venue on your radar, you have to check it out.Samuel Matthews.
