Australian Warehouse Wedding Venues

November 12, 2015

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.)

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

A large rustic barn, housing a bar, café and museum, The Apple Shed is surrounded by green pastures and combines a casual country feel with modern, industrial edge. Fitting up to 200 for a cocktail event, or 120 for a seated dinner inside the shed or out on the deck.

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.)

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.)

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.

Hi,
My fiance and I love your venues. We are interested in hiring a room in Brisbane for our wedding ceremony like the ones you have displayed. Would you know of any other hidden gems in Brisbane or even the Sunshine Coast where we could hold our ceremony?

Kind regards,

Caleb

Stay in the loop!
