The National Gallery of Victoria is a magnificent landmark wedding venue in Melbourne CBD that features a contemporary restaurant wedding venue overlooking the pleasant gardens, and a historic Great Hall complete with a phenomenal stained glass roof by Leonard French.

Restaurant Associates at the National Gallery of Victoria understands that every wedding is as unique as this iconic Melbourne Venue. We approach every special day with care to create an unforgettable journey for you and your guests.

Whether it be cocktail style or sit-down dinner our Event Planners look forward to working with you to host the most elegant and unique first day of your lives together.

Please note, we are unable to host wedding ceremonies at this venue, but our team are happy to assist you in planning your perfect reception.

We offer two unique spaces:

Great Hall: famous  for its stunning, stained glass ceiling by Australian artist Leonard French, the Great Hall offers the perfect backdrop for a memorable wedding dinner. This space can accommodate seated style receptions for up to 500 guests with space for a dancefloor. Don't be scared off by the size of the space, it is just as beautiful for receptions as small as 200 guests.

Garden Restaurant: with dramatic windows on three sides and bathed in natural light the Garden Restaurant setting is relaxed and elegant. This space can accommodate seated receptions for up to 120 guests including space for a dancefloor.

We were truly surprised when we heard this venue was available to host our wedding reception. We were so honored to be able to host at this absolutely amazing venue. Honey really made the process straight forward and an enjoyable experience. She would prompt us with reminder emails well ahead of time to make sure we were on the ball early and not too stressed making 'last minute' decisions. She and the staff at the NGV were accommodating to our requests and went above and beyond to make our plans a reality (our budget was the only restraint, nothing they couldn't do). There were a few hiccups along the way with caterers and costings cause let's face it: which wedding ever goes smoothly and to plan?!?! But Honey will ALWAYS try her absolute BEST to make things work and overall we are very happy with how our wedding turned out.

Thank you so much for your kind words Johnny, we loved being a part of your special day at this amazing venue. Honey is a true gem and we are very glad to have her as part of our team. Warmest regards, The Restaurant Associates at the National Gallery of Victoria
