Listed as #1 - "10 Of Australia's Most Insta-Worthy Venues To Visit" with The Urban List

Where to even begin? Perhaps by confidently stating that you have never been to a place like Projekt 3488. There is no comparison. It is in a world of its own.

Though part of the Yarra Valley, you won't find a vineyard, winery, brewery, or even a paddock with grassy fields. Projekt 3488 is an experience that you and your guests won't be forgetting any time soon.

Located an hour east of Melbourne in the picturesque town of Warburton, this former Masonic lodge operates as a private event space. A place to gather and celebrate love.

Upon entering the 1920's red brick facade, you will be transported immediately into an immersive space, which is both warm and inviting, magical and creative. Eclectic and artfully curated furnishings, decor and lighting throughout Projekt 3488 convey a sense of curiosity, fun and character.

The enchanting reception hall offers incredible versatility thanks to a unique moveable concertina table system. It allows either a ceremony space, dining hall or epic dance floor to be configured.

Transformed from a carpark into a secret garden and captivating with its wandering pathways, ponds and native flora, this is an incredible backdrop offering no shortage of photo opportunities.

As the sun sets, the garden lighting comes to the fore weaving its magic. Guests will enjoy cocktails and canapés on the upstairs deck looking out over the Warburton mountains. As the night progresses, the outdoor fire pit invites connection and conversation.

Mark, Sandi and the beautiful team at Projekt 3488 round out the experience offering personable, welcoming and friendly service. They aspire to create a space of comfort for every one of your guests, guiding you through an unforgettable event from start to finish.

If you are after a genuinely inclusive and unique wedding, Projekt 3488 is the perfect fit for you.

We had our wedding at Projekt 3488 in April. There are honestly no words to describe the unique beauty of this place. If you're looking for something that will stand out from all the other venues, and you want a day you will never forget, this is the venue you want. Our guests were raving about the venue and saying it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Mark and Sandi put their heart and soul into this place and they were there every step of the way to make us feel at ease and guide us through the day. They really took the time to get to know us as people, not customers. We would recommend this venue time and time again.

Thank you so much for the kind works. It was a pleasure hosting you, your family, and friends

This venue/space is absolutely incredible! It is so unique and out of this world! Words cannot even begin to describe the amazingness, it has to be seen to be believed! If you are considering Projekt for your wedding or event, you will not regret it! My husband and I recently had our wedding here on 19th May 2018 - it was the perfect choice for our intimate, winter wedding with an amazing outdoor fire pit and suspended fire place in the loft to keep our guests warm. Mark and Sandi, we could never thank you enough for making this the most incredible day of our lives. Our guests have not stopped raving about our wedding, and how unique and amazing it was. We had kept the location/venue as a surprise for our guests, most of which who travelled interstate and safe to say we successfully blew them away. They are already asking us to plan the next event. You can see from the photos how amazing this venue looks, but nothing can compare to the vibe you can feel just being there and the passion that Mark and Sandi have for this venue. This was the first venue we looked at in VIC after recently moving from QLD and we knew from the moment we found it that it was the one for us and worth our guests travelling for. It is such a versatile space to accommodate small or large groups while maintaining a sense of intimacy, warmness and cosyness. And you would never find another venue that could offer the personal touches to your day that Mark and Sandi do. I wish I could go back there every single day/weekend/week. I just have so much love for Mark, Sandi and the amazing venue that is Projekt 3488 xx

Unique, the best word to describe Projekt3488. There are no other venues in Melbourne like Projekt can bring such an amazing experience! We checked more than 20 venues in Melbourne for our wedding, as soon as we walked into Projekt we knew this is the place. We felt so lucky to have our wedding here in March 2018. The hosts Mark and Sandi worked with us since the beginning, and we were extremely impressed by how much efforts they put in. And we felt like we were organizing the wedding with close friends, they were very accommodating and responsive. Not just us, our guests had a ball as well. The feedback from guests are overwhelming, we still have guests today telling us that how much fun they had that night and it’s been the best wedding they have ever been to. Projekt3488 made our day so memorable. If you are looking for a venue for your wedding or any other events, hands on heart, you have found it.

Thank you Deng for your kind words, we really appreciate it! It was an absolute pleasure to be part of your day.

Perrin and I got married at Projekt 3488 on 15th February 2020. When we first saw the venue we knew it was where we wanted to get married. Mark and Sandi's place is incredible! They venue has such a great feel, it is very quirky and fun. We remember when we first visited the venue and Mark apologised for the state of the venue - we didn't understand what he was apologising for, even without any additional decoration their space is amazing! (The garden out the back is particularly beautiful!) Leading up to our wedding day, Mark and Sandi were a wealth of information (all of their vendor recommendations were outstanding!) and they were always on top of the details. The lead up to the day was made much less stressful because of them! Mark, Sandi and the staff at Projekt were absolutely amazing on the big day and really looked after us and our guests. We had 70 guests and had our ceremony inside on the top floor (we also loved that the venue had great options inside and out for the ceremony). It felt really nice and intimate. It's clear they love what they do and we really felt at ease with them. Since the wedding we have heard nothing but rave reviews from our guests. We wish we could do the day all over again. We highly recommend you look at Projekt!

Absolutely amazing venue, very different and quirky in a good way. Beautiful lighting and an awesome garden.Not one of our guests said anything negative about it, in fact they all said it was perfect. Paired with the preferred caterer made it an amazing night.

Matt and I got married at Projekt 3488 on the 15th November, 2019. We were immediately drawn to the unique vibe of the venue, amazing lighting, the beautiful garden and the warmth of Mark and Sandi. Their eye for detail is admirable. Projekt 3488 is unique. Each event is personable. Mark and Sandi were fundamental in helping a dream become a reality. They went above and beyond to ensure all guests were comfortable and had their needs met. It is commendable that they are so adaptive. For example, they were seen wiping down the balcony immediately after the rain stopped to ensure that photos could be held outside and guests could also transition to the garden. We received glowing feedback from guests about our wedding at Projekt 3488. We would highly recommend the venue to couples seeking an intimate, enchanting and stand-out experience for their wedding. Mark and Sandi, we will forever be grateful for you opening your door and welcoming us. Simone and Matt Lenthall

I got married here on the 19th of August and my day could not have been anymore perfect. I highly recommend this venue, Mark & Sandi went above and beyond for us, we have had so many compliments on our wedding and it was just simply amazing!

We had our wedding at Projekt 3488 on 28 June 2019. The owners of the venue, Mark and Sandi showed us around the place while we were still searching for a venue. We fell in love with the place instantly. We had a gorgeous winter cocktail wedding with approximately 100 guests and our ceremony indoors. We loved the fact that the space allowed our guests to face each other during our ceremony which made for some amazing photos. Following the ceremony, our guests were able to enjoy the beautifully decorated upstairs, deck and native garden areas. Later on in the night, the ceremony room transformed into a dance floor. Each part of the night, the venue seemed to change in lighting and style, keeping our guests wowed! So many of our guests commented on how unique the venue was and on the incredible hospitality of the staff at Projekt. Mark and Sandi were completely on top of all the finer details that we were unsure of. They were open to suggestions and constantly offered advice. Mark and Sandi’s knowledge and professionalism ensured our day ran smoothly and it honestly could not have been more perfect! Thank you Mark and Sandi for all your wonderful help. We will cherish this for a lifetime. We could not recommend Projekt 3488 more for an event, your guests are sure to love it!

The venue is beyond stunning. Mark, Sandi and the team were so amazing. Such a beautiful personalised experience with them 💕 Teaming up with Locavore Studios, we had an amazing time, wonderful food and such a beautiful venue. Mark and Sandi assisted us above and beyond. Helped with the diy welcome sign, diy dessert table and setting up the venue to suit us, the kind of amazing service we wouldn't have gotten elsewhere. Can't thank them enough xx

Mark and Sandi are some of the most genuine, caring people we've ever met it was SO lovely to have them looking after our wedding. The venue is absolutely stunning and the space it so versatile. I wish we could go back and have it again...so much fun!

We just recently tied the knot at projekt3488 and couldn't be any happier. Everything was perfect, planning was easy and the guests loved it! As my husband and i had to organise the wedding remotely in the northern territory we found it difficult finding the right venue. We searched for a while, making phone calls, receiving quotes... but every venue seemed to look the same with no "pop". I stumbled accross projekt 3488 by chance and made a query. That night i received a phone call from Mark and had an instant connection, his vibe was exactly what i was looking for. I explained how i cant visit the venue as i live in a different state but he was very accommodating and offered a video chat to show the place around. It was exactly what we were looking for!!! It was our "pop" that we needed. The venue was spectacular when we finally flew down with Mark and Sandi welcoming us with open arms and alot to talk about. We put our complete trust into these guys and they absolutely smashed it! They also recommended our caterer, photographer and florist who were also amazing. The day of the wedding was absolutely stunning!!! Our guests kept asking how we found projekt3488 and were so impressed with how it looked, the vibes, the atmosphere, professionalism, everything.... i highly recommend projekt3488 for any event, these guys are perfect, i look forward to meeting up with them again and will highly recommend projekt3488 to our friends and family :)

Mark, Sandi, the team at Projekt 3488 and those who work alongside them gave us and our guests a wedding that will last a life time in memories. Mark and Sandi provided outstanding support and their eye for detail and style did not go unnoticed, from the detail in the venue and garden to the styling on the day. They made planning our wedding easy and seamless and the day went off without a hitch. We thank you for all your love and support throughout the process. We could not have picked a better venue or team for our special day. Natasha and Simon Cox

They were wonderful! They did absolutely everything for us, including decorations. They managed the rain and the power outages really well, we had a great team!

6 Apr 2018

If Projekt is on your list of venues, then put it first! We did, and never bothered looking anywhere else. We had our Wedding here last night and had every single guest complement just how amazing, unique and versatile this place was. Most who had seen photos prior understood exactly why we couldn't describe it as it is simply indescribable. Mark and Sandi were everything we could've asked for! You can feel their passion for Projekt and their dedication to making your dreams a reality. We never felt as though we were just another Wedding but more so part of the Projekt Family. From the bottom of our hearts Thank you so much! You two made everything just so perfect.

The secret is out - Projekt 3488 is the star attraction of the Yarra Valley. I have been a guest at many many weddings around Australia and beyond, but was lucky enough to find Projekt for our own wedding in March of this year. As Projekts first same-sex wedding, it was an honour to be welcomed into Mark and Sandis hearts and creative minds for what was easily the best day and night of our lives - and our guests. The Space The space is curated with elegance, sophistication and a sense of intimacy. The views contribute to the theatre of the entire experience and the remarkable lighting installations from Christopher Boots add drama and art from one of Australia's most talented designers. Your Hosts Mark and Sandi design experiences. There are no "packages", and there are very few limitations. They take the time to understand you and craft your wedding or event to ensure it captures who you are. Its this personalisation that elevates the entire process of planning a wedding that makes it so different. Warburton This sleepy untouched town only an hour from Melbourne means you can have a "destination wedding" without the drama of major travel. The locals are hugely supportive of what Mark and Sandi are creating at Projekt, and like David Walsh and MOMA, these boys are going to put Warburton on the map. If you're looking for a space and a team to deliver the best day of your life, and you can manage to get a booking, do it.
