For a five-star wedding in the heart of Brisbane, this luxury urban retreat ticks every box (seriously, you might want to start the honeymoon here). Find out why you’ll love celebrating your wedding at The Westin Brisbane …
#1 Location, location, location
The hotel’s stellar locale has quickly made it a favourite for Brisbane weddings, especially among couples planning a stylish city wedding celebration. In addition to having the Queen Street Mall and Eagle Street Pier on your doorstep, the vibrant Howard Smith Wharves precinct is just a short stroll along the river. Meaning plenty of options when it comes to photo locations, last-minute shopping, and pre-wedding gatherings.
Dreaming of a garden backdrop? You’ll also have the riverside City Botanic Gardens a stone’s throw away. Offering nine ceremony sites, from the Lillypond Lawn to Rainforest Hideaway, it’s ideal for a garden ceremony and magical just-married photographs.
And The Westin Brisbane wins extra points for including five onsite carparks (prime real estate in this central location) in their wedding packages. Perfect for your parents or wedding team.
#2 Celebration-ready spaces
Whether you’re hoping to celebrate indoors or out, this inner-city oasis has your event covered. From a glamorous grand ballroom and fine dining restaurant to poolside perches that take in the city lights, there’s a space to suit every elopement, intimate wedding, or gala-style celebration.
First stop is the impressive Nautilus Pool Deck: a tropical sanctuary overlooking the twinkling city lights, complete with Brisbane’s only swim-up bar. Choose from three options (The Pier, The Podium, or The Promenade) for a poolside ceremony or cocktail reception under the stars.
If an intimate dinner-party feel is more your style, see the Private Dining Room. Found in the hotel’s signature restaurant, showcasing the best local, gourmet produce alongside an extensive wine list and flawless table service. Or try the clean lines of Elevate, a contemporary space that can host up to 90 for a cocktail-style event. Want to scale it up? The hotel’s ballroom can host up to 300 of your nearest and dearest for a gala-style affair, with floor-to-ceiling windows lending an ethereal feel to any Brisbane wedding.
Oh, and don’t forget to ask about The Westin’s exclusive Private Lounge Bar. This seductive event space is a hidden gem and available to guests before the reception but also makes an excellent base for an after-party or even a hens and bucks do.
#3 A dream team at the ready
Hand over the big day logistics to your dedicated wedding specialist (so you can get on with the fun stuff!). These detail-focused Westin event planners are all about delivering intuitive service and a seamless experience that delights from start to finish. By your side to answer every question, they also work closely with the hotel’s concierge, restaurant and catering teams to ensure your unique event runs like a dream.
#4 Five-star sleepovers
Weddings tend to be a flurry of excitement, nerves, and expectations. Which is why we highly recommend a quiet retreat where you can gather your thoughts … before and after ‘we do’.
At The Westin Brisbane, your five-star Renewal Suite is your place to rest and recharge — with wedding night accommodation included in your wedding package. These decadent hideaways include a luxurious SuperKing Heavenly Bed, a marble bathroom with rainshower, and a private balcony with glittering skyline views. Like the Westin Club King rooms, the Renewal Suites also enjoy access to the exclusive Westin Club. Treat yourselves to a two-night stay for a mini-moon feel.
Your guests will also enjoy special accommodation rates, so everyone can relax and soak up those irreplaceable moments together. From pre-ceremony Champagne with the girls to a post-wedding brunch and debrief.
#5 Perfect pampering
Speaking of unwind time, we know how important pampering can be in the hectic lead-up to a wedding (hands up if you’re already longing for a massage). Australia’s first Heavenly Spa by Westin™ will help soothe body and mind, calming any wedding jitters with their menu of massages, facials, and body therapies. Our tip? Leave time to enjoy their unique relaxation pods: a post-treatment bonus served with tea and antioxidant-infused chocolate truffles! There are also two couples’ treatment rooms so you can share the experience with the one you love.
