We are Showtime Event Group and we love weddings. With four unique locations in and around the Melbourne CBD, you’re bound to fall in love with one of our spaces for your special day.
The definition of historical significance and old world class. The State Library is a cultural icon of Melbourne and Australia that holds thousands of stories from the past, present and future. The site has recently undergone an $88.1 million dollar redevelopment to restore and renew the original spaces of the Library while integrating modern technology. However words cannot do such spaces justice as over a century of history has to be felt. From the gorgeous Queen’s Hall to various gallery spaces or just a blank canvas. Create your love story with us at the State Library.
Voted as the Number One Reception Venue in all of Australia (Need we say more?) at the 2018 ABIA Awards. Showtime Events Centre is our flagship venue located on South Wharf, beside The Yarra River and facing Melbourne’s stunning city skyline. Industrial chic is the name of the game here and it does the aesthetic justice, wrought iron walls behind draped curtains create intimacy in this large space, originally a shipping shed from the days of Melbourne’s infancy, it has been purposefully recreated as an events space. With unique features, prime location and award winning service, this makes Showtime Events Centre a venue not to be overlooked.
Warehouse weddings, riverside. The younger, brighter brother of Showtime Events Centre, Cargo Hall is a brilliant light-filled venue located on South Wharf Promenade adjacent to The Yarra River. A glass conservatory runs the length of the venue, perfect for pre-dinner drinks before moving inside where an internal balcony sits above, perfect for the DJ as the evening progresses. Original hardwood floors, reclaimed wood panelling walls and light-up feature bar make this a venue that ticks all the boxes for a unique and stress-free night.
For lovers of the dark and different. Not often the first place that comes to mind for your wedding day, you might be surprised about what the ole’ Gaol has on offer. The long main hall features bluestone flooring, 3-tier walkways above and every fine detail you’d expect of a heritage building. With just the use of a few up-lights, a hallway length table and some candles, the Gaol becomes illuminated in a way not seen before. A surefire way to wow family and friends. The adjacent Alumni Courtyard is perfect for arrival canapés, along with the Old Magistrates Court and the Former City Watch House on the grounds. There is more than meets the eye at the Old Melbourne Gaol.
Each location on offer with Showtime Event Group can be styled, customized and much more in line with the vision you have for your perfect day. Our wedding producers aim to provide the absolute best service from first enquiry all the way through your big day, along with our expert international executive chef and charismatic front of house team.
Let us make your big day brilliant in every way.
