Polished concrete, raw timber and exposed metalwork… there’s something so enticingly textural about a warehouse venue. They are the true blank canvas spaces, with countless styling opportunities begging to be explored under their lofty ceilings.
We love a warehouse wedding here at Nouba, and venue experts WedShed know all the best spots for throwing a chic, industrial event. They’re sharing their favourites from around the country, from mammoth lairs to cozier hidden gems.
Tenth & Gibson / Adelaide, SA
Tenth & Gibson is a 200sqm warehouse space situated in Adelaide’s inner west. The building has been architecturally transformed using recycled materials and provides an awesome clean slate for weddings and events. (Check out Claire & Sam’s Tenth & Gibson wedding.)
Laurens Hall / North Melbourne, VIC
Once home to the Railways Printing Works, light-flooded Laurens Hall features polished concrete floors a handsome display of authentic industrial pieces. (Check out Emma & Robin’s Laurens Hall Wedding.)
Lightspace / Brisbane, QLD
Hatched from a converted warehouse, Lightspace features lofty designer spaces with a rustic-industrial feel. There’s also a Japanese-inspired outdoor terrace next to the railway line. Plenty of space and scope to bring a creative wedding to life.
The Apple Shed / Huon Valley, TAS
Studio Neon / Sydney, NSW
Studio Neon is an eclectic warehouse with eye-grabbing bits and bobs everywhere. The fitout combines designer, industrial, retro and probably a few other styles too – all seamlessly. Definitely one to wow your guests. (Check out Kerry & Sacha’s Studio Neon Wedding.)
Ellis St Studio / Melbourne, VIC
A minimalist chic warehouse space in the heart of the South Yarra, Ellis St Studio is a lovely white blank canvas with fully set up bar area and a small outdoor area.
Perth City Farm / Perth, WA
Warehouse meets barn at this industrial space. High, exposed ceilings and white-washed walls open out to a large courtyard, surrounded by established gardens and rustic buildings. There’s also an organic nursery and urban farm on the Perth City Farm precinct – perfect for photos. (Check out Fiona & Peter’s Perth City Farm Wedding.)
Spotswood Pumping Station / Melbourne, VIC
One of the most majestic warehouses in Australia, the Pumping Station has three spaces – the Boiler House, Engine Room and Courtyard to utilise for weddings. This unique building has sweeping views of the Yarra River and plenty of historical significance, with classification from the National Trust.
Cupo / Brisbane, QLD
Cupo is a beautifully renovated urban warehouse in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley with polished floors, industrial fittings, movable walls and full-length curtains. A completely versatile blank space to transform.
Carriageworks / Sydney, NSW
Sydney’s (in fact, Australia’s) largest multi-arts centre, Carriageworks is warehouse porn for anyone that way inclined. They have several spaces for hire for events and plenty of industrial buildings for epic photos.
