Did anyone just see Carrie Bradshaw running past Tiffany & Co. in a wedding dress as you read this?
Melbourne has repeatedly won the title of the world’s most liveable city, and for good damn reason. You’ve got the romantic architecture on the French end of Collins Street, the hustle and bustle, dinging trams, hot delicious coffee and skyscrapers as tall and as far as the eye can see. It also happens to house some beautiful wedding venues hidden on every CBD corner. What’s not to love?
Here are the best Melbourne wedding venues to say ‘I do’ to:
OUR FAVOURITE MELBOURNE CBD WEDDING VENUES
If you’re struggling to narrow your guest list down to under 500 (we’ve all been there), I would strongly recommend a venue as grand as the Grand Hyatt for your Melbourne Wedding venue. This beautiful venue hosts two ballrooms onsite and a world class events team that spare no detail when it comes to creating your dream wedding day. Imagine floating your way across the fog on the ballroom floor during your first dance. Ed Sheeran would even say it’s “Perfect.”
ALTO EVENT SPACE
If you’re looking for a CBD Melbourne Wedding venue to bring sexy back, look no further than Alto Event Space. Nestled above Melbourne’s GPO building you’ll find this warehouse-style event space. Alto has created a polished concrete space with sky high ceilings and windows overlooking the cityscape. The sleek, minimal layout means that you can transform it into anything you need it to be as the backdrop for the most magical day of your life.
One of Darling Groups ‘Cafes’ on Steroids,’ Higher Ground will literally make you mouth ‘Oh my god’ on arrival. This Melbourne CBD Wedding venue is a huge brick building with 6 connected levels that are both intimate and overwhelming all at once (kinda sounds like your first year of marriage). Is there anything that screams more “Melbourne CBD Wedding” than espresso coffees & martinis from AM to PM?
VUE DE MONDE
High up in Melbourne’s former tallest building, you will find Vue De Monde. If you’re not afraid of heights or spoiling yourself - it will tick all of the boujee boxes. This first class CBD Wedding Venue has the sky high views of the city you love with an exquisite dining and beverage experience to match. If you want your guests to feel as special as your husband-to-be, Vue De Monde will not disappoint.
Now that we’ve explored your wedding backdrops let’s dive into some premium talent to really set this wedding dream alight. Think grand pianos in the foyer, classy saxophone tunes to sip to early in the evening and epic dance floor hits synchronising effortlessly with your fireworks display.
Melbourne CBD Wedding Entertainment
DJ & SAXOPHONIST - JAAZ
A polished performer with the best manners in the biz, Jaaz is sure to impress. He might seem shy on first appearance, but don’t be fooled, Jaaz loves to take centre stage with his saxophone and get your guests up on their feet. Have you ever heard of a performer with a more fitting name to bring a touch of jazzy class to your event?
DJ ENTERTAINER - VUOS
Vuos has established himself as one of Melbourne’s most sought after Wedding DJs. Vuos is the ultimate professional with years of wedding experience and a spotless attention to detail - he is an entertainer not to be missed (you see what we did there)?

We get it, making big decisions is hard. Do you blow your wedding budget on the angelic voice to sing you down the aisle or on a DJ that will get your party jumping? Well, look no further because Katherine can do both! She is a super talented songbird that can hit the decks later in the evening. Surely that solves that problem on the list. Next!
ACOUSTIC/PIANIST DUO - JIMMY & KRISTIE
