Everyone wants the perfect wedding. However, what determines its perfection when we think about the perfect wedding? Is it the weather, the number of guests that arrive, the cake making it to the reception in one piece?
There are so many different elements that make up the perfect wedding, but it’s the location that sits at the top of the list for most of us. Which venue becomes your special spot. What is the aesthetic present in all of your photos and memories from the big day and night?
In Western Australia, there are plenty of beautiful spots to get married. In fact, there are so many that it boggles the mind when you need to choose just one of them. We’re here to help. We’ve picked the top four wedding venues in Perth that are already primed to ensure perfection for your big day. Read on to learn which of the four is the one for you.
We’ve saved you some time by creating a shortlist, but a list of four venue options is still tricky to choose from. Read our explanations for why each venue made our list below and see the features of each specific space. By the end of this article, you should have your chosen spot!
The Sweetwater Rooftop Bar will have you and your guests partying into the night with panoramic views over East Fremantle and the Fremantle Port. Inside, the luxury interiors provide a chic backdrop that will look gorgeous in your many photos.
Sweetwater Rooftop Bar offers three options for weddings of all sizes, including:
Along with beautiful surroundings and amazing views, Sweetwater Rooftop Bar has a range of canape platters, Chef ‘Feed Me’ banquet options and beverage packages. The team will help you create the bespoke wedding of your dreams, so you just have to sit back and look forward to the party.
You can tick the ‘something old’ requirement for your wedding day off the list by holding it at The Guildford Hotel. This brilliant 19th-century landmark makes a statement and sets a certain classic aesthetic all on its own. It offers a number of unique spaces and the famous ‘Eat with One Hand or Two’ menu, perfect for cocktail style shindig.
The Guildford Hotel has a few spaces on offer:
The Guildford Hotel is filled with old charm and historical touches, offering a menu that creates pub classics with a modern twist. If you love the feel of a historic setting, this is the venue for you.
Smaller, intimate weddings will love celebrating in the heart of Victoria Park in a space that blends modern and heritage architecture. The Victoria Park Hotel is a cozy space with an impressive beverage selection and delicious menu. Larger weddings are also catered for at this locally-adored spot.
The Albany Room is the section for the big events, handling up to 200 people (standing) and overlooking Victoria Park from the balcony. The space has a black marble bar, private bathrooms, and dance ﬂoor and can be set up for seating with a maximum capacity of 100.
The Albany Courtyard is an alfresco area located at the front of the venue with a maximum capacity of 70. Cocktail-style weddings are well suited to this section in one of Perth’s best-kept secrets, which has been standing since 1927 and brings all of the era’s architectural charm to your big day.
While our top four venues are by no means ranked, we may have saved our favourite for last. If you have up to 120 guests and want something a bit unique and cool for your wedding, we recommend the open-plan layout of Wolf Lane. The walls are adorned with painted murals, rustic exposed brick walls and eclectic antique collectables.
Quirky but romantic, Wolf Lane offers an ambient fairytale setting, canapes, food stations and amazing cocktails. You can even include a Lolly Cupboard Candy Buffet or Hansel & Gretel’s Donut Bar for a bit of extra fun.
The dedicated team at Wolf Lane will help you combine their unique small bar experience with the twisted storybook wedding of your dreams. If you feel like something alternative but truly memorable, Wolf Lane is your wedding venue.
