Melbourne’s top all-in-one inner city wedding venues!Categories Wedding tips. Wedding venues.
27 Apr, 2022
Melbourne is blessed with incredible wedding venues that provide everything you need for your full celebration. This includes pre-ceremony drinks through to cocktail hour and canapes and of course, your reception. Many of these venues are conveniently located in the inner city. This makes it easy for your guests to travel to and from these venues and find accommodation nearby (if needed).
In this blog we talk about our favourite venues where you can get married and have your party all in the one space. The venues we’ve chosen are all unique and offer something different so it’s easy to forget you’re amongst the hustle and bustle of Melbourne!
Noisy Ritual, Brunswick
Noisy Ritual is an urban winery in the inner north Melbourne suburb of Brunswick. Need we say more? Located on the popular Lygon Street, this gorgeous space is perfectly set up for a ceremony, cocktail hour (often with grazing table), seated dinner and dancing. The bar conveniently runs along most of the venue, making it easy to grab one of the incredible boutique wines on offer.
With wine barrels and greenery throughout the venue, you’ll be forgiven for thinking you’re in one of the wine regions of Victoria!
Post Office Hotel, Coburg
The Post Office Hotel on Sydney Road in Coburg is a huge hit with fun-loving couples who want their wedding to feel like a party from start to finish. The pub’s Dining Hall is a dedicated warehouse style venue with a large dance floor (hell yes!) and a private outdoor garden, which can be used for your ceremony.
As well as the wonderful staff and delicious food, we love the warm and relaxed feel of the POH. The gorgeous brick interior with exposed beams and vintage pendant lights all add to the atmosphere. The venue can even brew a personalised beer for your big day on-site!
Panama Dining Room, Fitzroy
Panama Dining Room is one of the most sought after inner city venues in Melbourne, situated in trendy Fitzroy on Smith Street. The space is versatile enough to hold your entire wedding – ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and dance floor. A gorgeous arched window provides the perfect backdrop for getting hitched.

Studley Grounds, Kew
Studley Grounds is a cafe and event venue located in the leafy Melbourne suburb of Kew. As mentioned on their website, the venue is close to the city, yet feels miles away! It has ample free parking, city skyline views, and 8 hectares of green space.
Hold your ceremony on the beautiful lawn and then enjoy cocktail hour and canapes on the open deck next to the event space. Moving inside, you can opt for a cocktail style party or a sit down. And the best thing is there are no sound restrictions!
The Wool Mill, Brunswick East
Described on The Wool Mill website as “an urban minimalist’s dream”, this venue is an industrial warehouse space set over two levels. The Wool Mill takes your guests on a journey through its multiple spaces, which include a mezzanine level, “I-do” room, feasting hall and a very cool speakeasy bar.
Its contrasting white interior and black beams coupled with high ceilings give you a modern blank canvas to work with for your wedding or special event.
Glasshaus Inside, Outside and Brücke, Richmond
The owners behind nurseries/event venues Glasshaus Inside and Outside have added a third venue to their portfolio – Glasshaus Brücke on Bridge Road in Richmond.
Glasshaus Brücke is the largest of the three venues and similarly benefits from the amazing combination of bringing together a florist and venue in one. The result is a green paradise in the inner city! Boasting art deco architecture, Brücke has two floors available so you can hold your ceremony and cocktail hour downstairs and move upstairs for your reception/party.
With full catering facilities, lift access and an in-house sound system, it’s perfectly set up for your suppliers to come in and do what they do best!
Not forgetting about the OG Glass venues – we love these as well, of course. Read our blog about Real Glasshaus weddings we’ve played! and The ultimate guide to your Glasshaus Inside wedding!
