We’re just going to make the assumption that this whole plebiscite nonsense is going to end in what we ALL want. Equality. And gay AF weddings. We’re talking Queens in big white dresses, ladies in suits and two tiny men statues standing on the top of a cake. Throw a couple of confetti cannons in the mix and we’ll be on top of the damn world.
Now, once the vote is in, and the politicians have gotten around to actually doing their jobs, we’re going to need somewhere to host these fabulous festivities – and where else would suffice, but Chapel Street?
Here is an excellent, though not complete list of petite event spaces that would perfectly suit a perfectly gay wedding.
Sitting pretty at the very top of the Cullen Hotel in Prahran is a rooftop event space that is screaming out for a pound of glitter and a Kylie soundtrack. The views stretch across Port Phillip Bay and the CBD, catering and drinks can all be organised in house and you’ll even get a dedicated events coordinator to help piece the day together. The guest list will have to be selective, but it’ll be worth it. Besides, with rooms on site to house the crowds, the after party will be epic.
The Emerson‘s Remedy Sunday is the perfect way to ease out of the weekend & into a new week! Get your butt to the rooftop for live Dj’s and drink specials from midday ‘til late. Be there for sunset and watch the orange glow roll out over the city with a glass of vino in your hand. It’s a pretty sight, ain’t it?
The Bromley Ballroom could quite possibly be Chapel Street’s best kept secret. Often admired by passers by, but little do they know, what’s inside is so much better than the exterior. This treasure is David Bromley’s art studio. Part gallery, part event space. Any wedding reception here would be shrouded in magic, intrigue and just the right amount of queerspiration.
Ridiculously stylish cafe by day, drop dead gorgeous space by night. Uncommon in Windsor is both whimsical and romantic. It’ll cater to our favourite Fashionista Gays who dress all in black and would never touch anything with processed carbs. Obviously the catering would be perfection, and the location? Sublime. It’s just a short stroll to your favourite night time dwellings for post reception shenanigans.
You’ll know Lucky Penny by their drop dead delicious coffee – but if you wander upstairs you’ll find the Goldilocks of function spaces for a small, intimate and beautiful wedding reception. Victorian architecture, high ceilings, wide arch windows and light timber floors provide the most wondrous room setup. Add theming to suit his & his personalities, and it’s all sorted. PLUS the Lucky Penny team know their stuff. From planning, to catering and waiting – the result is always precision execution with food that’ll blow your mind.
