Set in the heart of Melbourne, State Library Victoria is a world-class heritage-listed wedding venue with a distinctive charm. Celebrate your unique love story in one of Australia's oldest cultural institutions, complete with stunning marble staircases, soaring bookshelves and architecture dating back to the 1850’s.

The current $88.1 million redevelopment of State Library Victoria has entailed restoring and rejuvenating life into some of the most untouched and unseen rooms of the Library for the last decade. Bringing together a wonderful combination of new and old, your wedding can be held in any one of the eleven new function spaces within the State Library.

 Our award winning Wedding Team from Showtime Event Group will be with you every step of the way, to arrange all of your important details, provide guidance and support and create an unforgettable wedding celebration. Work with your own dedicated Wedding Producer to make all your dreams come true.

There are so many distinctive features hidden within the walls of the State Library, which boasts elegant halls, marble staircases, Corinthian columns, galleries and reading rooms just to name a few! Whether you are looking for ceremony location, reception location, or both (!), we are sure there is a space you will love.

Be one of the first couples to experience the magic of the Library, see what immense possibilities and spaces exist at the Library. We invite you to contact our amazing Wedding Producers, who will be able to walk your through our current packages, or help create your own unique package. It’s genuinely important to us that each and every wedding feels as individual and special as the couple and we make no apologies for our “no cookie-cutter” policy!

We always said we wanted a unique city venue- well the Ian Potter Queens hall at the State Library Victoria certainly had it all! Our vintage glamour wedding style matched perfectly with the stately room, that managed to handle a full night club vibe at the end of the night! Just stunning. We were so grateful to be able to gift our guests the experience of this gorgeous venue, "after dark".
