We had the most magical wedding at Blackbird. Venue location perfect, spectacular views of the Brisbane River & the Story Bridge. Beautifully decorated inside with stunning chandeliers & art deco furniture. First class meals & 5 star service from all staff. Jessica our venue coordinator made everything flow perfectly & answered every little question we had prior to the day. Thank you to everyone at Blackbird for making our day everything we ever dreamed of.

Emma and the rest of the staff from Blackbird were amazing to deal with and I cannot recommend them enough. They made the whole process simple and clear, despite the many many questions we had! They communicated well myself as well as with our other vendors to ensure the night ran smoothly and to schedule. We also received many compliments on the food, alcohol selection, view from the venue and friendly staff!

Blackbird is where we had our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception for our wedding. Blackbird prides themselves on their professional and attentive service, along with spectacular food and wine menus and they did not disappoint! Nothing was too little or too much to ask for, they would smile and say yes. Table service was a dream, once your drink was low a new one was on the way. The food was amazing and did not disappoint, as promised there was plenty of food. In the lead up to the wedding we had Jess helping us plan our dream day, Jess was a godsent for us! Nothing was ever too much or too hard to assist us with. When our dance floor company fell through 4 days prior to our event, a quick call to Jess to let her know. Within hours Jess has called me back with a substitute company. If your looking to have a classy wedding venue with breathtaking views of the story bridge; amazing table service; fantastic food; wines and cocktails look no further!

From the moment we stepped foot into Blackbirds, we knew our wedding reception dreams were about to come true. Every detail, from the elegant décor to the impeccable service, exceeded our highest expectations. First and foremost, the Jess and the staff at Blackbirds are absolute gems. They went above and beyond to ensure that every aspect of our special day was flawless. Their professionalism, warmth, and attention to detail made us feel like royalty from start to finish. No request was too big or too small for them to handle with grace and efficiency. The ambiance of Blackbirds is simply magical. The breathtaking surroundings/views over looking the story bridge provided the perfect backdrop for our celebration. Every corner of the venue exuded charm and sophistication, making our guests feel transported to a fairytale setting. And let's talk about the food! Our wedding menu was an absolute culinary masterpiece. Every dish was expertly crafted and beautifully presented. Our guests are still raving about the exquisite flavors and impeccable quality of the cuisine. Blackbirds made sure no one went home hungry and the portion sizes were fantastic! The team at Blackbirds truly went above and beyond to make our wedding reception an unforgettable experience for us and our loved ones. We cannot thank them enough for their dedication, professionalism, and genuine care. Our wedding day was a dream come true, and we owe it all to Jess and the incredible team at Blackbirds.
