Is a wedding venue really that important?
Simply put – YES IT IS!
When it comes to the big day, booking a venue is hands down one of the most important things. How the entire reception plays out almost entirely runs on it. You need a great spot, one that’s easily accessible for most guests. You need parking to cater for everyone coming. The food needs to delicious. The venue staff need to be professional and friendly. The venue must be flexible to an extent to make the wedding reception you envision come to life! All of these points play a key role in securing your perfect wedding venue. Being an entertainment team who offers Canberra Wedding DJ Hire, we’ve performed at a tonne of venues. In this read, we draw from this experience and dive into our top 5 picks!
Hellenic Club of Canberra
We love flexible spaces. This venue can cater to both smaller intimate weddings, or the larger weddings (up to 550). Situated in Woden, this venue boasts very experienced staff to ensure smooth-sailing for your big day. Because of the venue’s versatility, this is one of Canberra’s most popular spots and is definitely one of the team’s faves when it comes to DJ’ing weddings.
Okay for this next one, think peaceful, intimate and private. Set on 200 acres of bushland, Goolabri is the perfect venue if you love to get close to nature. This venue boasts enormous open spaces, including two ceremony lawns and a few outdoor settings. Goolarbi also offers marquee weddings for the bigger celebration, with the ability to host up to 450 for formal dining and 1000 for a cocktail setting. The Bedouin stretch marquee is absolutely stunning. In the day, it makes for amazing shots against the picturesque backdrop, but wait until you see it light up at night with the help of the venue’s lighting team. All of the different points mentioned here make this a no-brainer for a wedding venue. When seeking a Canberra wedding DJ for hire, this venue allows the perfect space to set up comfortably and fit in with the surroundings.
The Royal Canberra Golf Club
This venue is lucky to have the Royal Canberra Golf Club as a backdrop, almost the Westbourne Woods. It’s a gem with endless photo opportunities amongst the glorious lakes, creeks, stone bridges and gardens. The stunning venue has a committed team, including an award-winning chef to ensure your special day is nothing but that! Canapés are usually held in the Garden Terrace, before heading into the Westbourne and Formal Dining rooms for the formalities to commence. This venue can hold up to 130 guests.
We agree that all three of the above are magnificent venues in their own right. Whether you’re hosting a mega-sized wedding, or you’re after a more laid-back boutique setting, these have you covered in all aspects.
