Are you looking for your dream wedding venue? Look no further, friends. We have done some serious research, checked our very helpful (if we don’t say so ourselves!) Directory, and gone through a tonne of Real Weddings to come up with this list of our favourite 15 urban wedding venues from across Australia. We’ve chosen this category first because we can’t get enough of those industrial warehouse weddings and inner-city restaurant vibes, but don’t stress, we’ll be doing country, coastal and heritage soon, so keep an eye out!

For now, though, scroll down for our favourite urban venues right now- in no particular order of course. We’ve popped a little bit of information beneath each, as well as the location (vital information when it comes to choosing your venue) and links to their websites (because we know that’s where you were heading next)- once you’re done here of course!

You’ll also find loads of industrial wedding inspiration in our annual Real Wedding Special. Our fourth edition, out now, is brimming with over 250 pages of never before seen real weddings from the world over that we just know you’re gonna love.

The Calile Hotel
From a grand ballroom to a picturesque poolside situation, a terrace, amphitheatre and more, The Calile Hotel has seemingly endless options for your wedding and reception and although boasts urban vibes, it has a slight coastal feel, too. Bonus!

Rupert on Rupert
Brides, listen up! Rupert on Rupert is not one to scroll past! It’s an industrial space with foliage in all the right places, a darn good Aperol Spritz (trust us, we had our Wedding Planner & Notebook Launch here) and is in a cool Melbourne laneway. Sit down capacity for up to 80 people, or stand up/canapé options for 150, it’s a venue you need to check out, stat.

A diesel workshop in another life, Stackwood usually houses creative businesses, workshops, markets and more and has been renovated into a bright industrial-style space with exposed roofing, raw concrete floors and whitewashed brick walls that make it the perfect venue to hire for your wedding day, no matter how you plan to celebrate. Just ask Michelle & Chris, who got married there this year.

Three Blue Ducks
An epic converted industrial warehouse in Rosebery, Sydney, the Three Blue Ducks guys are clever in every sense of the word.
