When a couple starts to plan their big day, so much goes through their minds. There is of course excitement and anticipation unlike anything they have felt before, but planning a wedding can also come with a lot of stress. Staying within a budget, being true to themselves as a couple, showing their guests the time of their lives, and not offending any family members are just some of the things to worry about.

The owners pride themselves on their singular decisions to make the world a better place with environmental and sustainability practices. When it comes to weddings, green is the new white!
‘Red Scooter has a very individual way of looking at how we run every aspect of our business. We recognise what Douglas Adams called the ‘fundamental interconnectedness of all things’. In other words, no aspect of Red Scooter exists in isolation. One philosophy, one approach. It influences everything we do. It can be summed up in one word….Sustainability.
We are environmental crusaders – Australia’s first and as far as we know, the world’s first carbon positive venue and we try to minimise the environmental impact of everything we do. We’ve worked with consultants to estimate our carbon production, including transport for the products we use and patrons coming to and from our venue and we’ve offset it with tree planting through GreenFleet’
They also offer organic and locally sourced produce, use efficient appliances, work hard to save water, recycle waste and buy recycled products wherever they can. The owners are constantly learning new ways to leave a better impact for future generations.
The Red Scooter story
Red Scooter is a purpose-built event space that is owned and has been operated by the Hamilton’s since its conception in 1997. It started with a passion for hosting events and looking after their own family and friends. They wanted to create a venue that would welcome everyone instantly; and that once you walk through the door, you’ll become part of their extended family too!
Over the years Red Scooter has evolved and they now have four flexible event spaces, each with their unique look and feel. They pride themselves on having planned everything out and there is no blank canvas; their venue was designed to just ooze with love indoor and out. From the hand-picked chandeliers to the velvet draping, the oversized mirrored walls to the Parisian inspired lounges, the décor is second to none.
They understand that small details and special features are the deciding factors in selecting Red Scooter as the wedding venue for your big day. All of these aspects combined add to an amazing backdrop for you, your family and your guests.
