Selecting a venue for your big day is more often than not the first step in the wedding planning journey. It’s the essence of the experience you are offering your guests and a decision you are going to want to think carefully about. Being the helpful souls we are, we went on ahead and rounded up 15 of our Top Urban Wedding Venues for you to take a peek at.

Previously, we have also rounded up our Top 15 Country Wedding Venues, Top 15 Coastal Wedding Venues and Top 15 Heritage Wedding Venues but today it’s all about industrial interiors, bars and the best city spaces going around.

We have been sure to include venues from all over Oz including The Wool Mill in Melbourne’s laid-back Brunswick through to Mona in Hobart and a smattering of groovy institutions in between. We have warehouse vibes from Luna Event Space and cafe/bar/event space hybrids like Stray Neighbour. Yep, we’ve got it all.

Now, enough from us. Let the scrolling begin…
