Most Unique Reception Venues In Perth
Perth has no shortage of beautiful venues, the problem is if you live here it is easy to take it for granted. So while Komodo Music has been to almost every venue in the Perth metro, I think it is fair to say we know some of the more ‘unique’ ones which differ from the rest.
When creating this list there were some criteria we followed:
- It must have something that no other venue has- For while The Pan Pacific and the Tradewinds might be very nice venues, when you get into them they are very similar so it has to have a character both on the inside and out
- It should be something you never thought of- If I say reception on the river you might automatically think Matilda Bay, Mulberry on Swan, or Burswood on Swan. We have tried to avoid ones like that unless they are very pretty.
- It needs to be able to hold at least 50+ people- There are some great really small venues like 1907 Restaurant which are more for those direct family weddings. We have tried to avoid those. We will note though if they can hold 50+ with cocktail then we might include it.
- It has to be able to have a dance floor and DJ- because let’s be honest, if you can’t dance, what’s the point of having a reception
Being able to have your pre dinner drinks in the aquarium is awesome and something your guests will talk about as they wander through the venue. While the reception room itself is fairly standard it is the location and the space which gives this venue a leg up
Perth Bell Tower
I can vouch for personal experience here as I got married and had the reception at the Bell Tower. It is so different and very cool to have a function here. Usually you have it on the top floor but due to the time of year we had the reception inside in the ground floor and it was amazing. You can read all about it here
Having a party on a boat is pretty cool, but having a party on a two story boat is even cooler. Being able to have the dinner upstairs, and dance floor down stairs, but have music playing in both areas is great for us DJs and saves on space for you.
If you are looking for a space that can fit over 400 people, Winthrop has got you covered. It is air conditioned, looks stunning and has heaps of photo locations for your wedding.
Maritime Museum Fremantle
A beautiful sunset and history all around, there aren’t too many places that can claim to have a giant boat hang just behind the bridal party table.
If you like vintage and beach, this is the only venue you will need. The unique room layout fits perfectly with a classic theme and you have long tables for your guests to sit at.
Little Creatures Brewery
Beer lovers be damned, this is a cool place to have a wedding. The atmosphere is very Fremantle and the food is great too.
There are a few places on Rottnest to have a reception and they are all good. Not only do you have the sunset looking out over Perth, but you usually have little furry gate crashers at your wedding
