Would highly recommend this venue. I’m very glad my fiancé (now husband) and I chose the Level 12 rooftop at Rydges for our wedding location. We are actually based overseas and my entire wedding was organised from abroad, using a mix of online reviews and emailing. Our decision to go with Rydges had originally been based on its central location, the amazing views of the Brisbane waterfront from the Level 12 rooftop and the fact that Rydges was located next to Southbank Parklands, providing a nice area for our guests to visit in between our ceremony and the reception. It was logically a good choice. However, having had a wonderful wedding day, we can now also add that the excellent event coordination, friendliness of staff and some amazing pre-dinner canapes, were further reasons that made this a great choice of venue. We received a lot of compliments from our friends and family about the pre-dinner canape service and of course, the spectacular views over sunset as well as into the evening. There’s no doubt that the Level 12 rooftop is one of those venues that will remain memorable for wedding guests, which is exactly what we had wanted. It’s also worth mentioning that a big part of our positive experience was the amazing wedding coordination by our event coordinator, Rebecca, who was very patient and responsive to all my questions from day 1. There was a lot of care and attention to detail put into the coordination, down to the accuracy of the last place card for my guest tables. This left me very reassured and I would particularly recommend Rydges for this reason.

The team here were phenomenal. We really enjoyed dealing with them. They were fantastic at making us feel like the weight was lifted off our shoulders. I highly recommend this venue for the wonderfully helpful staff as well as for the venue itself. The Rooftop is just so perfect.

We had our reception there. They were so helpful all the way. THey included an extra nights accommodation for me. When we got back to our room there were rose petals and champagne. Those little things were unexpected and really added to our day. The general service was really, really good. We had a full sit down meal. The food was delicious. We went for a tasting a few weeks before. The portion size is really decent which is really good. They did our flower centrepiece and our seating chart which were simple but all that we needed and wanted.

Great experience over all. A few things went wrong on the day with luggage going missing which was stressful and they were a little unorganised and also didn't have any plates so guests could have their dessert on the night but instead the hotel just put out plastic takeaway cups we had which were intended for the guests to take dessert home. The functions manager was excellent and really professional and more than happy to meet with us to discuss the details of our day.
