Perfectly placed on the riverfront side of Federation Square, ZINC offers a rare private event space in the heart of Melbourne. This modern inner-city wedding venue boasts dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows and beautiful Yarra River and city skyline views. With flexible open-plan interiors and two expansive outdoor decks, ZINC at Fed Square is perfect for both wedding ceremonies and receptions.

The main event space at ZINC Fed Square is the ideal venue for hosting larger weddings and features a spacious reception area with a stunning marble bar, pendant lights, and a feature rug. With contemporary neutral tones and floor-to-ceiling windows, this open-plan space can be styled to suit your wedding theme.

With an extensive range of delicious menu options and bespoke beverage packages, you’ll have the freedom to personalise your wedding menu depending on personal tastes, guest numbers and dietary requirements.

Questions and Answers

Do you have preferred suppliers or can we bring in our own?

ZINC at Federation Square

We have a list of preferred suppliers and they are only preferred because they know the venue very well, come recommended by our couples and are reliable! There is nothing worse than a supplier letting you down last minute, or not knowing the venue and what works best. 

We welcome all suppliers, and will engage with them regarding delivery/collection/set-up etc., saving you lots of time and one less thing to worry about.

What are the best transport options?

ZINC at Federation Square

As we are centrally located there's a whole heap of options! We are right by Flinders St station, as well as numerous tram stops and a car park next door that offers weekend rates. There is even a dock nearby for those who want to arrive in style by boat. Couples have the VIP treatment and can drive straight up to the front of ZINC.

What support can you expect from the ZINC team?

ZINC at Federation Square

What support will you be given in the lead up to your wedding is very important as you should be able to call on your coordinator any time of the day! We are here from the point of enquiry, right through to helping you calm those nerves just before you make your entrance into the room. From the wedding coordinator, through to the function supervisor, to the chefs and waiting on staff, we are all experienced in weddings and are here to help at any point when needed. We love seeing a wedding come together, and are often just as excited to see how everything goes on your special day

Do you offer a tasting?

ZINC at Federation Square

Now this is the fun part! We offer tastings for our couples and find tasting the delicious food and beverages from our menu is always a highlight for many couples. Our chefs attend and can give you expert advice on any of the dishes!
