Amazing! There event coordinators were all over it, always communicating with us and keeping us in the loop. Everything on the day was beautiful and ran so smoothly. Guests still comment on how amazing the service was, attention to details was fantastic.

Absolutely love love love this venue. It was just stunning. The staff at this venue were exceptional. Leading up to the big day they did anything and everything they could to ensure our plans were running smoothly, and all the staff involved on the big we're fantastic! Our guests have complimented them so many times, saying that the service at our reception was really something else, and the food, well that just goes without saying, was by far the best food myself and majority of our guests have ever had at a wedding. Showtime Events really made my big day everything I hoped for.

Showtime Events Centre  

Wow, this is so lovely to hear, thank you so much for your very kind compliments. This kind of feedback is why we are so passionate and love what we do every day. Wishing you the best of luck for whatever the future holds for you xx

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.

Showtime Events Centre  

Thank you for your kinds words, Brittany, we were honoured to host your wedding and wish you and Adam a lifetime of happiness.

The best wedding venue not only in terms of location and style, but also an amazingly organised and experienced team. The food and drinks were amazing, with a large variety to choose from. The backdrop of the Yarra also allowed us to take some amazing dusk photos.

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!

Karinda was amazing from start to finish. Super professional but so easy to get along with. She was always there to answer any question from the first meeting to the day before!

The team at Showtime definitely know how to do a fantastic job at putting on an event and putting their clients at ease - after seeing so many potential wedding venues, Showtime was definitely the standout on the quality and clarity of their offering. There were no hidden costs or exclusions - we felt they were honest and genuine with us from the beginning, which we quickly discovered is very rare in the wedding industry. Showtime is an amazing venue - with a beautiful industrial charm and riverside views. All of our guests commented how gorgeous the venue looked, from the amazing location, to the quality of the decor and the stunning bar, I could go on and on! The staff have impeccable service and worked to make the day more perfect than we could have imagined - with specific thanks to our coordinator Karinda for guiding us along every step of the way and going above and beyond for us. She was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process. From our very first meeting she put our minds at ease and made the lead up to the wedding stress-free for us with her great attitude and meticulous planning. Also thanks to Jake & Bianca for their great work on the night. The food was delicious and in abundance - even my grandmother was highly impressed, and she's a hard nut to crack! The drink service was an absolute standout for everyone. So many people praised the wait staff for their personalised and prompt service both at the bar and at the tables. The whole atmosphere of the night was a fun and happy one which is exactly what we'd hoped for, and the Showtime staff definitely played a huge part in making our day a success. We could not have asked for a better venue - they are absolutely fantastic and we wish we could do it all again!

Showtime Events Centre  

Wow Adelle, thank you so much for taking the time to give us such amazing feedback and for detailing such beautiful parts of your day. We love that we were able to assist you in every way possible, and to be able to impress your family and friends! Our waiters work really hard to make a lasting impression on your guests and give them the best experience possible, so it's really lovely to hear that this was appreciated by your guests. We have passed along your compliments and praises to our internal teams and again would like to thank you again for taking the time to share your experience. You both deserve the best and we wish you a happy and healthy future, from the Showtime Family xo

The night went without a hitch; definitely a finely tuned team behind the night which gave us the complete confidence that our day would be exactly as we wished. Perfect.
