Incredible venue! We went Cargo Hall at South Wharf, and the place is stunning! High ceilings, dark hardwood floors and fairy lights made it beautiful! The team were absolutely lovely! They were really accomodating to our vision of how we wanted our wedding to look like! Would highly recommend Cargo Hall.

June 2019

Showtime is the perfect versatile venue, for a non-traditional, unique wedding! A modern and contemporary blank space you can completely make your own with styling and decor. With multiple inclusive packages, and flexibility to have what you want, and a great team behind them. Our package included; food, drinks, centrepieces, table settings and more. Just by booking with them, a whole chunk of reception planning was done in one go. Our Wedding Producer, Karinda went above and beyond for us, and answered every silly question and multiple emails about everything and anything we inquired about. Nothing was too much! It made planning a whole lot easier, from the day we locked them in. We had both our Ceremony and Reception, and they transitioned between the two seamlessly. The whole day came together wonderfully. It is a convenient city location and self-contained for its busy wharf area. Our guests haven’t stopped telling us how much they enjoyed our wedding! Thank-you Showtime Team!

November 2023

Showtime Events Centre was fantastic. The venue was beautiful, dream-like with the icicle lights, great central location on South Wharf, great canape space, interesting/non-boring bar and bathroom design. The staff were great. We had plenty of prompt communication prior to the event for all our random questions and requests. They were always accommodating as we needed a few extra visits to measure things and visualise our venue. On the day, our wedding ran smoothly thanks to the staff on the day.

Do we seat couples opposite or next to each other on a long table?

It's a garden setting. We want to allow better mingling

Showtime Events Centre

Good afternoon, 

When booking your dream day with Showtime Event Group, you have a dedicated Wedding Producer looking after you and supporting you with your planning. They will create your floor plan and support you with a template for the seating arrangements. On long tables, it's nice to have couples sitting next to each other so they can look opposite the table and mingle with other couples. 

Kind regards,
