by Perth wedding photographer, Kate Drennan Photography
So, you’re engaged, CONGRATULATIONS!
The first thing you need to do is choose a wedding venue where you will celebrate the best day of your life.
HOW TO FIND THE PERFECT WEDDING VENUE
Before searching Google for wedding venues in Perth ask yourself a few questions…
What are the places special to us as a couple?
Are you beach people? Bush people? Industrial? Classy? Happy Campers?
How many people do we
need want to accommodate for?
Is BYO a better option? I say heck yes!
Cocktail or Sit Down Reception? I vote cocktail any day!
Is it easier to have both the ceremony and reception at the same venue? (Insert yes here)
What time of year will it be? Ie. don’t pick Barrett Lane after winter when it’s been all cutback and there are no blooms.
What will the weather do on the day? Outdoors weddings under the stars are the best! Have a backup clear marquee on standby if unsure.
Will this venue still be cool our favourite pick in over a years time?
How will it look in photos? If all indoors, is this best for natural light? (Insert NO here)
What style of photos are you after? If you are adventure seekers you are my kinda couple!
Will Down South be hard to get to or will it be more secluded and personal? I’d highly recommend hiring a stylist.
Next, have a look at a few of my favourite wedding ceremony and reception venues and see if any of these match your vision.
IN THE CITY

Montgomery Hall captures the elegance and romance of a bygone era making it Perth’s most exciting new venue.
Montgomery Hall’s breathtaking, spacious Grand Ballroom seats up to 150 people.
Location – Heritage Lane, Mount Claremont
Suited to – Corporate, Weddings
Capacity – 200 standing, 150 seated
Industrial Warehouse in Leederville, dark and moody vibes. Great for Winter or a Mid Day ceremony
For little intimate elopements, the colour scheme and decor in the courtyard out the back of this cute little shop is so cool!
Dark and moody PSAS is great for a winter wedding
Or, why not be awesome and just hire an epic house somewhere, get a band and mass fairy lights and have an epic dance party. With sparklers. And food trucks.
IN THE VALLEY
Barrett Lane have since made you use their caterer which I am less likely to promote but push to have food trucks!
For all the cider fans out there, although a bit of a trek Core Cider is perfect for cocktail outdoor summer parties under the festoon lighting with views of the orchards to die for!
