December 2023

Matt my husband and I had our wedding at the powerhouse in September 2023 and it was more than we could have hoped for. The venue itself is stunning with a unique mix of modern and old-fashioned elegance. We had the use of a top floor deck space for the ceremony with a room and deck space for the reception. This allowed us to use the parklands for photographs in between the two. Katelyn and the team organised everything and anticipated our needs . They had links to a brilliant range of suppliers and the catering was seamless; we opted for a grazing plate and then hot and cold canapés and beverages. We had a local florist adding beautiful red and pink flowers to the space decorated with fairy lights. All sound equipment was provided and I cannot recommend them highly enough!!

We recently held an event at the Brisbane Powerhouse and could not recommend the venue highly enough. The catering provider had lots of options and the food was absolutely delicious! From initial enquiry through to the night of the event, Katelyn was absolutely wonderful. Her thoughtfulness and professionalism was much appreciated and she made the entire process incredibly easy and stress free.

Katelyn was amazing in helping us through the process of planning an event. The space was perfect for us. The catering staff were exceptional but the glue to making our wedding a success was katelyn. So organised , so calm and nothing was impossible.

Venue was excellent and guests couldn’t stop raving about how beautiful the riverbend terrace and rooftop terrace was ! Kaitlyn was a great help on the day and kept smiling even though there is a lot of ‘emotions’ for everyone going on on your wedding day

Right from the start, our wedding experience with the Brisbane Powerhouse was nothing short of exemplary. Katelyn is the most fantastic coordinator and made everything super easy and simple. Nothing was too much trouble and due to some less than ideal weather conditions on the day, we had to switch things up at the last minute. However this hiccup was no match for Katelyn and the team, and they managed to put together the most amazing experience and setting for us in only a few short hours. Food, drinks and the catering staff were also 10/10. We literally cannot fault a single thing about our wedding experience at the Powerhouse. A truely amazing day and one that we will cherish forever.
