A gorgeous venue with so much character. It barely needs any styling as it’s already such a romantic and elegant space: a huge window, gorgeous high ceilings, and beautiful eclectic furniture. We had an intimate ceremony followed by a sit-down dinner with 30 guests. The team made us feel at ease that everything was under control, and the entire night went off without a hitch.

Hi Natasha, It was one of the most special moments live streaming to overseas, and it brought a tear to our eyes. Loved it! Thanks.

A gorgeous venue with so much character, so happy we stumbled upon it! Barely needs any styling as it is already such a romantic and elegant space. The huge window, the gorgeous high ceilings and full of beautiful eclectic furniture. We had an intimate ceremony followed by a sit down dinner with 30 guests. Felicity was a pleasure to work with, she made it easy for us to plan the whole event from interstate during lockdown, from Facetime tours to recommending a fantastic caterer. Her and her partner were fantastic on the night, making us feel at ease that everything was under control, and the entire night went off without a hitch. Location is 10/10, in the heart of Collingwood, very easy to access public transport/taxis/Ubers, but in a relatively quiet back street. Highly recommend!
