If you’re looking for a fun, easy and totally rocking wedding experience, look no further than The Altar Electric. Melbourne’s hippest little venue in the back streets of Collingwood is where couples can enjoy the ease of a registry style wedding with the experience of an epic Vegas elopement.
The brainchild of celebrants Dee Brinsmead, Anthony Cribbes and Sarah Dobson, The Altar Electric has evolved from offering fuss free ceremonies at iconic Melbourne bars, to establishing a permanent home at Collingwood’s School House Studios.
“Setting up shop permanently at School House Studios was a no-brainer for us,” says co-owner Sarah Dobson. “We love that it supports emerging artists and creative businesses, and it’s enabled us the creative license to build a totally rocking and inclusive space for couples of any gender or orientation to celebrate their love.”
Enlisting the creative nous of Good Day Rentals’ Kate Forsyth, the space has been elaborately pimped out with glam rock and Vegas vibes, with a distinctively Melbourne edge.
Kate tells us “We created a concept that’s a slick mix of retro Rock ‘n’ Roll and 70s disco feels, with a touch of contemporary goodness to get that super sweet mix of old and new, with the aim of creating a mini events space unlike anything else.”
We popped in to say hello at the venue’s recent launch and met the team who makes the magic happen. We can say with confidence that you’d be hard pressed to find a more passionate and vibrant bunch of people to get you good and married!
