Located in Melbourne’s culture hub, Zinc at Fed Square merges contemporary design and sophistication with the natural beauty of the sweeping parkland surrounds — a unique fusion of the arts, the Yarra and the CBD.

Floor-to-ceiling windows and two large private outdoor decks showcase superb views of the tranquil riverbanks and glittering city skyline, creating an entrancing and vibrant atmosphere for wedding ceremonies and receptions.

Think of Zinc as a malleable environment you can adapt to create your perfect event space — a canvas ready for you to transform. Our flexible space is ideal for grand occasions or can be divided into individual studios, each with its own entrance for more intimate weddings.

Architecturally designed, the venue includes a spacious entrance foyer ideal for drinks and canapes on arrival, a stylish marble bar, concrete and timber walls, designer light installations, a geometric feature ceiling, and a private bridal room.

Zinc’s impressive riverfront location boasts endless possibilities for wedding photography. Just footsteps from the venue you’ll capture those precious moments along the Yarra River with the historic boatsheds, Princes Bridge, the Arts Centre and Federation Square as your backdrop. Wander a little further and you’ll find Flinders Street Station, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Parliament House
steps and iconic laneways, including Hosier Lane and Degraves Street.

Whatever your wedding vision, our team will bring it to life.

Zinc was absolutely beautiful and the staff were extremely accommodating and made sure everything on the day was perfect and checked in on us throughout the reception to make sure we had everything we need. We did have quite a few different wedding coordinators in the lead up to the wedding which made planning difficult, but everything ran so smoothly on the day, we couldn't fault it.
