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.

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!

The venue was the State Library and it was beautiful! Alice assisted with putting the reception together and catered to our personalities entirely. We wanted a fun filled day with cocktails, nice selection of wines and shots! They kept me calm throughout the day and allowed us to tour the venue and take some lovely photos.
