BRISBANE WEDDING VENUE
HIGH CHURCH FORTITUDE VALLEY
Brisbane wedding venue, High Church Fortitude Valley is one of Brisbane’s most unique wedding reception venues and ceremony spaces. The converted church opened its doors in July 2015, and sits on top of the Brisbane Modern Art Gallery in the heart of Fortitude Valley.
High Church, Brisbane’s newest and most sought after wedding venues, is an adaptable space which can be turned around to host both your ceremony and reception. Then while guests are mingling over canapés and beverages either on the rooftop terrace or downstairs in the art gallery overlooking the streets of the Valley precinct or the lights of the Story Bridge. The styling team then flip the space over for the evening celebrations.
As a wedding photographer I have photographed at most of Brisbane’s wedding venues and I particularly love these types of spaces where you start with a blank canvas. You can then add your personal touch and styling to create your own unique wedding day.
The wedding featured in this article was styled by the talented team at Main Event Weddings. With an abundance of white lilies and touches of copper, provide a sophistication and modern style.
Being close to Brisbane city, High Church Brisbane is close to many hotels, with lots of accomodation options for the bride and groom getting ready photos and accommodation for your guests. As well as having transport close by to get guests home at the end of the reception … or a short stroll for those party-goers wanting to continue partying into the next morning.
High Church being located in inner city Brisbane, is close to many great locations for your bridal portraits. For those couples wanting an urban vibe for your wedding photos, you have the laneways of Fortitude Valley, the Brisbane Powerhouse and Teneriffe Woolstores. If you prefer greenery, then New Farm Park is just a short drive down the road. You also have the iconic Story Bridge in walking distance and Kangaroo Point Cliffs a short drive away.
While the bride and groom, and bridal party are off having photos, the guests can mingle on the rooftop deck or the art gallery below.
On returning from your bridal portraits, the space is turned over for the evening festivities. The large open floor plan allows for many options for arranging your tables, two long rectangular tables plus the bridal table as featured is just one option.
