Cocktail Wedding Venues on the East Coast that let you BYO catering (cheese & meats grazing table)?

We're looking to have a wedding with around 100 guests in a cocktail setting (no sit down meals etc.). We want to bring in an external company to do an amazing cheese and meats grazing table (that can easily be done by a registered caterer if need be) and then do drinks through the venue as well as potentially canapes as well. We know some venue's supply grazing tables but we're really after something quite extravagant hence the external caterer. We're based in Sydney but are really not fussy about time of year or destination as long as it's on the east of Australia (QLD, NSW and VIC) and a venue that's indoors (or at least has an indoor area in case it rains). Does anyone know venues who would allow this or know whether it is a viable option at all? Thank you!

Banquet dining or cocktail style?

Will it be better to have a banquet dining or cocktail style for guests of around 100 or more??

Hi There 

Either works well. It just depends if you have many formalities for your Wedding. If you do- we would recommend you go for the banquet style of service. If you're wanting more of a party and lots of dancing then we recommend you go for a cocktail style.

Get in touch, we would love to invite you to visit Red Scooter- 03 9527 6846....Congratulations on your engagement!

Looking for a late finish venue?

Hi There, I am marrying a beautiful Argentinean next year. We are trying to blend the 2 cultures with our wedding but are finding it very challenging. One of the key cultural issues is the finish time of the weddings - there weddings finish at 6-8am (no joke) and ours finish at 11pm! At present we are trying to find a venue that can host us till 2-3am. (150 people) - with a later start as well. Any suggestions!? Thanks!

Hi There

We are looking for a venue with a late license?

We have family coming from overseas (France, UK) and it's unheard of to turn the lights on and the music off at midnight and kick everyone out when the party is just getting started. We are looking for a venue who will accommodate us until at least 2AM, if not all night. We are happy to DIY everything.

Hi There

Congratulations you're engaged!

We have a licence until 3am!! The party will just be getting started at 12am on our spacious dancefloor. We also have options of venue hire. Our unique venue will suit any wedding style. We look forward to hearing from you. Kindest Regards, Red Scooter   

Do you have any advice on what to look for in a wedding venue?

there are so many options, I was wondering what I should keep in mind

While there are many wedding venues choosing the right one for your celebration should be taken very seriously. The venue plays an extremely important role in your wedding, but you may not realise exactly how the venue can lead to the success or downfall of your wedding.

The venue plays a role in the photographs, the setting, accessibility, décor and overall appearance. Choosing a venue that has a nice setting, plenty of room and can accommodate your guests can be tricky. You need to consider the music; the food and everything you need to have readily accessible at your ceremony venue.

Where can we land a helicopter to arrive at our ceremony?

How bad are Sunday night weddings?

I'm planning a Sunday night wedding, but am concerned about guests who may need to work the next day. How are Sunday night weddings usually run? Unfortunately a brunch/lunch wedding doesn't really work for our venue.
