9 wedding venues that have your industrial-chic theme sorted

Industrial wedding venues
Polished concrete floors, high ceilings, raw timber: there are a lot of reasons to love an industrial-themed celebration.
And the city-chic feels are just one of them. Tying the knot in a cool industrial-inspired space makes a unique alternative for couples seeking a contemporary twist on urban weddings. These venues are usually more versatile too, giving you the chance to put your own stamp on your big day styling. Dress the space up or down as you like, whether it's with strings of fairy lights and vintage props or leaving the space just as you find it. But where do you start looking for such a blank canvas? Right. Here. From revamped warehouses and renovated factories to stylish studios and grungy galleries, we have nine beautiful spaces, all perfect for a gorgeous industrial-style celebration. 

For a contemporary garden setting...

Like a side of greenery with your industrial-chic nuptials? Botanic Gardens Restaurant in Sydney is just the place for you. The restaurant is located in the heart of the lush Royal Botanic Gardens and even has views of the harbour. The pretty green gardens are likely to be the backdrop for your ceremony, with your vows followed by canapés and sparkling wine on Bennelong Lawn. It’s inside the restaurant where the studio style starts. You’ll find the essential industrial-feels kit – polished floors, high ceilings, a sleek bar – but there are also colour-pop works of art and a separate lounge area. These clever design features mean Botanic Gardens Restaurant is fit to host any style of reception, be it a fancy cocktail party, indulgent sit-down dinner or intimate celebration. 

For inner city cool...

Industrial wedding venues
Tucked between a hipster-approved café and Las Vegas-style chapel is one of the most unique spaces the Melbourne CBD has to offer. 1000 £ Bend already has a reputation as a café, but slide open a set of heavy doors and you’ll discover a warehouse space perfect for an out-of-the-box wedding reception. The area has worn-in walls, suspended mirror balls and a built-in bar. The best part? 1000 £ Bend can be your ceremony and reception venue. Enter The Church of Bang Bang Boogaloo, a former farrier’s workshop that has been turned into a seriously cool chapel right next to the warehouse space. Your day might start with a ceremony in The Church, which your friends and family will find by wandering down Heape Court. Once your ‘I do’s have been swapped, you and your SO can move into the neighbouring cobbled stone laneways for photos while your guests move into the adjoining reception space. 

For cosmopolitan farm feels...

Industrial wedding venues
Perth City Farm sits on the edge of the CBD, on the site of a former scrap metal yard. The main event space is the warehouse style barn, which has industrial looks by the bucketload. Think white-washed walls, a terracotta-hued floor, exposed metal beams and plenty of scope for you to style it as you wish. The barn opens up onto a roomy courtyard, edged by flowering gardens and a handful of other buildings. Perth City Farm has both your city and rustic theme covered. Your reception might start with pre-dinner drinks and canapés in the courtyard, before moving into the barn. The space can suit on-trend long tables and traditional round tables.

For an understated stunner...

Want a venue with a perfect balance of industrial style and rustic looks? Meet Ten 22, a boutique space just 15 minutes from Adelaide’s CBD. Couples can approach Ten 22 as a blank canvas or embrace its existing styling. The contemporary multi-use space was once a wrought iron manufacturing site, and the venue still boasts the original front iron gates. Ten 22 can be styled to suit your vision, but don’t be surprised if you decide to keep everything just as it is. There are two spaces available: the Main Room and the Parisian Room. The Main Room comes with sheer curtains, allowing you to create separate spaces and zones. There is also a vintage chandelier from Italy, rustic Argentinian doors and polished concrete floors.

Forget having to overhaul a blank canvas to make your wedding venue picture-perfect; the team at Vieille Branche in Brisbane has done that for you. The crew here has filled the beautiful warehouse space with French antiques to create a space reminiscent of Aladdin’s cave once the sun goes down. If you do want to put your own spin on the space, make the most of Vieille Branche’s stockpile of antique kit available to hire. Expect recycled timber trestles and benches, antique chairs, a chalkboard, outdoor festoon lighting, tea lights and candles. The space comes with vaulted ceilings, a kitchen for caterers and bar staff, and an outdoor area. Couples wanting extra al fresco space can also hire the neighbour’s garden. Vieille Branche is suited to ceremonies, as well as both cocktail and seated receptions. 

For a wonderful warehouse...

Have your creative cap on? Two Ton Max is a converted industrial warehouse in Melbourne’s north that puts the ‘canvas’ into blank canvas. Seriously. This venue gives couples more styling and decorating opportunities than we have fingers. As it is, Two Ton Max has gleaming burnished concrete floors, white walls, an abundance of natural light and a private outdoor garden. Need to take care of heavy lifting during set-up? Cue the vintage overhead crane from where the venue gets its name (read: the crane has a two-tonne maximum capacity). Couples and guests will find Two Ton Max discretely tucked behind an anonymous street front.

For artistic types...

MONA, or the Museum of Old and New Art, in Tasmania is a pretty special place to tie the knot. The museum is a totally unique venue, perfect for couples wanting a wedding that will surprise, impress and have guests talking for weeks afterwards. There are more than 10 rooms to choose from, but the industrial vibes are strongest in The Organ Room, a cool modern space that overlooks the Derwent River and is suited to small seated receptions or larger cocktail events. If it’s drama you seek, make for The Void. With art to the left and a sandstone slab to the right, The Void is found in the heart of the museum and delivers on spectacular wow factor.
