Major renovations restoring elegance & old world charm creating the perfect venue for weddings, by injecting a sense of history, glamour with a modern twist.

The Transcontinental Hotel has quickly established itself as one of the most versatile wedding venues in Brisbane. Situated in the heart of the CBD, our classic 1880’s heritage listed building exhibits a Victorian era inspiration to its design. Its old-world charm with varnished dark timber floors, exposed brick walls, historic furnishings and picturesque inner city views makes ‘The Trans’ that perfect wedding reception venue.

Our weddings are hosted in our entire second level private area called the Platform Bar. This area contains a timber u-shaped bar, dance floor, multiple sitting areas, bathrooms and a private balcony spanning the length of the building.

The large cost of some weddings can leave future brides and grooms a little scared and overwhelmed. At the Transcontinental we keep very competitive prices to ensure that you enjoy your day without any heavy financial burden. Take some time and browse our packages that are all inclusive.

Having multiple entertainment areas allows for extreme versatility, and when matched with our own unique style & personality it means that you don’t have to place limits on your imagination. So why not take some of the stress out of planning your most special of days and enquire now to see how we can help give you that dream wedding.

Questions and Answers

Is there a Venue Wedding Co-Ordinator?

Trans Hotel Weddings

Yes, there is a venue coordinator. They will work with you to ensure everything runs smoothly on your special day and are there at any point you have questions regarding your wedding reception.

How long do you have to set up and clean up (i.e. bump in and out?)

Trans Hotel Weddings

At the earliest, you or your vendors will have access to bump-in from 9am the morning of your wedding reception. However, you are more than welcome to drop off any styling up to a week prior to this and we can keep it in our storage. We are very flexible with bump-outs and are happy to work with you or your vendors on when best suits everyone.

What will the Venue Wedding Co-Ordinator take care of for you?

Trans Hotel Weddings

The Venue Wedding Co-Ordinator will take of all the knity gritty that we don't want you stressing about. For example, finalising all the detials for the running of the reception approx. 6 weeks out from your wedding, contact your vendors a week out to organise bump-ins and bump-outs plus anything else they need from the venue, set the full table setting for your style of reception (i.e. sit-down, banquet, etc.), layout your place cards/bonboniers if applicable, light all candles and turn on any lighting that is apart of your styling, fully pack down all your styling at the end of the night, and plenty more.

Are you able to taste the menu?

Trans Hotel Weddings

Yes, if you decide to book with us, we organsie a full finalsation for the running of the recpetion approxiamtely 6 weeks out. Prior to the finalisation, we get you and your fiance to choose 3 entrees and 3 mains from our current seasonal menu that you will be able to taste while we finalise with you both. We can also do a wine tasting if you are unsure about what package you are wanting to go with.

Are there any other options besides a Beverage Package?

Trans Hotel Weddings

Yes, if you do not want to go with a Beverage Package you are more than welcome to have a Consumption Bar. There is just a minimum per head cost of $45.00 for this option. You can then customise your drinks menu to suit your idea of the perfect drinks menu for your wedding (for example, having spirits or cocktails available to your guests).

Our wedding reception went so smoothly. Ash, Jordi and the team were amazing, and the food was great!

15 Dec 2018

We cannot believe what you put together for us! The Transcontinental Hotel was an exquisite location for our wedding reception! Jordi and Ash spent hours with us in the lead up helping us to get exactly what we wanted in the final result. As soon as we walked into the venue, we knew the place would be perfect for us, and we were not let down. Jordi responded so quickly to our every question and idea with kindness and enthusiasm, Ash’s incredible seating plans helped us fit in all our loved ones for a sit down reception, even adjusting to suit last-minute requests. They smoothed over every hiccup on the day, and at every stage of planning. You were both so easy to communicate with and gave us memories that we will have for a very, very long time. Thank you so much!!

The absolute perfect venue for our wedding. We fell in love with the exposed brick, timber floors and chesterfield sofas in the platform level of the hotel. We elected to have our ceremony and reception all on that one level with a seamless transition from formalities to party. Jordi and the team hosted an amazing evening that was fun and intimate. We loved that we could be our selves and have a beer in the public bar and take advantage of the ambiance and history of a quintessential Queensland pub.
