Our Wedding Day was a dream come true for my Husband and I. We were married in the Parklands Gardens, had our pre-reception drinks on the Riverfront Deck and our Reception in the Sunset Marquee. The day was perfect, the food was so delicious and the Riverlife staff were incredible. To Jordyn, our Event Manager, it is simply impossible for me to put into word how incredibly grateful we are for everything you did to make our wedding day a real life dream come true. Your reassurance about our wedding plans and work ethic is something you should be very proud of. My calmness on our wedding day was because of these things, I just knew our ceremony and reception would be exactly as we imagined because of you. But truthfully it was better than all our dreams! We will cherish the day forever and we cannot recommend Riverlife enough!

We recently had our wedding at Riverlife. The Parklands setting for our ceremony was beautiful and private and the City lights marquee along with the lawn was perfect for our reception. Our event manager Jordyn was a pleasure to work with. She made sure we had everything we asked for and nothing was too big an ask for her. She kept us up to date with everything going on with the Covid-19 restrictions and worked with us to make sure we stayed compliant but still had the beautiful wedding we wanted. All of the staff on the day we amazing. They were all presented well and service was perfect (i was never without a drink and there was always someone close by checking in) Jordyn along with her team made sure we had the most perfect day with absolutely no problems. We cannot recommend or thank Riverlife enough

Surprisingly Affordable and gorgeous location! A well oiled machine when it comes to service and enough delicious food to feed even the biggest eaters! At less than $100pp including furniture and venue package, this stunning location on the brisbane river with incredible views is a hidden Gem. We starred on the river front deck and were delighted with surprise fireworks accross the river. The food is fantastic, we had the coctail menu, and you can BYO alcohol which reduces the cost considerably. the staff are organised and think of absolutely everything. couldnt recommend more, you can do as much DYI as you like or leave it to the professionals for a small fee. we had over 100 guests and spent less than 10k

Our Ceremony & Reception at RiverLife Kangaroo Point was a complete dream!! From the Staff to the Service to the Venue was 5 stars and beyond!! Our event Coordinator Kayla Gutierrez is the real MVP! She was exceptional! She held our hands throughout the whole year of planning, replied to our many many emails, answered our many many phone calls. Her communication, organisation and calmness assured us we were in such great hands from start to finish. I cannot thank you enough Kayla and RiverLife for bringing our Wedding dream day into a beautiful reality. The venue for a Wedding Ceremony & Wedding Reception is fantastic - the 'Golden Hour' as the sun is going down looking towards Brisbane City over looking the Brisbane River is the money shot! This location is unbeatable - the most beautiful venue in Brisbane CBD - cannot fault or beat it!

Riverlife is a beautiful venue on the water and perfect for both the ceremony and reception. We had the cocktail style reception and the food was delicious and very prompt. We had the silver beverage package and had a good selection of beer and wine. However there may have been a lack of communication as we paid for a drinks extension which was not applied and some guests paid for there drinks and my Dad had to out on a Tab to cover peoples drinks. I did get a refund though for the money my Dad put on but I was a bit annoyed as we had paid for that service and we didn't receive it. Our event manager was good but I did feel in the weeks leading up to the wedding that we were chasing her up for replies and invoices. Overall very happy with the wedding venue.

Perfect spot, having ceremony and location in one spot is great! Great communication with our coordinator. Can decorate or leave as is - either is perfect!

I married my wife at this beautiful location on the 6th of Feb 2021. Kayla, Becky and the entire Riverlife team made our day very special, as everything was perfect!! All our guests were stoked with the service, food, location and rocking vibes.. Thank you so much, keep doing what you're doing!

We had a beautiful mid-week wedding at Riverlife and it was everything we wanted and more. They hosted the ceremony and reception taking care of everything from furniture to food, and a event planner to make sure everything runs smoothly throughout the day. They made our wedding so easy and stress free to plan. All the guests loved the location and the food was devine. I would highly recommend Riverlife to anyone for their wedding.

Jordyn and the team at Riverlife made our wedding day and the lead up so easy and stress free. Nothing was too hard and they liked after everyone e on they day. What a beautiful venue with the magnificent city of Brisbane as a back drop! Thank you Riverlife for the wedding day we wished for!

Our wedding day with riverlife was perfect. We had so much fun. Jordyn our event manager was so helpful as well as all the staff there. The venue if affordable and the view is beautiful. We got married during the covid pandemic and are so glad we went ahead. Despite the restrictions we had so much fun!

This was the best decision we made- choosing Riverlife. They have everything we needed: a garden, the element of water and the Brisbane view. We don’t have to spend much for decorations really because the view on its own is breathtaking. Riverlife is the best supplier that offers, not only a venue, but excellent service! Maddie, Jordyn and the team have been superb! So easy to talk to and deal with! Forgotten about the pandemic because Riverlife do have a COVID safe plan. Staff have been trained so that’s one thing off the list. And Jordyn made sure everything was well taken care of! An added bonus, we forgot about our ceremony wine glasses, we had to get it the next day. It was put aside by the staff and already washed! We’re really happy with the outcome of the wedding! Excellent excellent service!

We loved the Riverlife parkland location for our ceremony and can't wait to be able to utilise a function space next year for another celebration as COVID caused some changes to our wedding day. Jordyn communicated with our planner well and helped to make our day even more special.

Riverlife was the most amazing wedding and reception venue. Our ceremony was in the Kangaroo Cliffs parklands with Brisbane City as the backdrop and then it was just a short stroll to the reception venue, the riverfront deck. Both locations were incredible! Kayla, our event manager, was a delight to work with and made the planning process so smooth. Even with all the ups and downs of COVID-19, Kayla ensured we had the most beautiful wedding. On our wedding day, all the staff were incredible and made us feel like VIPs! It was an absolute dream and we are so fortunate to have been able to get married at Riverlife. We HIGHLY recommend it!

Riverlife was a fantastic reception venue! We were blessed with gorgeous Queensland weather (26 degrees during day and around 19-20 degrees at night). It was a stunning night. Tahlia, Ellie and Jordyn helped to make me feel very special and well looked after. They also worked incredibly well with our on the day co-ordinators “the other bridesmaids” and my stylist/florist Gemma Burrows from “borrowed event hire”. The only negative I have is that at the beginning planning stages, we kept getting shifted to different wedding planners and after I discussed this with Tahlia as an issue, she came on board and managed our wedding including being there on the day. After those first few months of muck around issues and once Tahlia was on board, we couldn’t have been happier with the service. Tahlia made me and me family feel like she was personally invested in the wedding and

It's right down on the river bank, and we got such beautiful photos there and did a few photo shoots over there as well. It was so easy to get into contact with them as well. It was also so easy for us and the guests as it was all at the one venue.
