Two Ton Max
If you’re the kind of couple that appreciate having options, you’re going to love this industrial warehouse located in North Melbourne. Two Ton Max is a blank canvas, completely malleable to your personal style and aesthetic. With the flexibility of hosting up to 200 guests, you can opt to have them seated along formal banquet tables, or relaxing on lounges and bar stools for a less ceremonious cocktail engagement. Burnished concrete floors, inoffensive white walls and an abundance of filtered natural light make this former rambling industrial workshop the ideal space to transform in to absolutely anything you like.
Another North Melbourne beauty, Laurens Hall is 1500 square meters of pure creative indulgence and urbanity. Flooded with natural light, this versatile timber workshop and showroom space has an undoubtedly feminine side.

Laurens Hall is infused with tasteful design elements and here, your only limit is your imagination.
Nothing screams Melbourne more than our café scene. This café come function space reflects it’s uber hip Brunswick location. Soaring ceilings, exposed brick walls, bare metal brackets and beams and tainted brass fittings amplify Lux Foundry’s relaxed atmosphere and recycled, modern infrastructure. Capable of playing host to 90 of your closest friends and family, this rather-impressive, old heritage factory site is an exemplary location for an intimate gathering post nuptials.
The Church of Bang Bang Boogaloo
The Church of Bang Bang Boogaloo is a factory turned chapel, boasting a non-discriminatory attitude and a candid retro theme. The beautifully distressed space offers a truly unique experience from the rustic ceiling beams that have been converted in to pews, to the giant polished metal door erected at the alter. The cathedral element of a traditional church has been downplayed and the overall venue reflects a funky, unconventional vibe. Hidden down one of Melbourne’s notorious lane-ways, the church of Bang Bang Boogaloo is a decidedly alternative space to tie the knot, renew your vows or celebrate a milestone anniversary.
Tonic House Rooftop

Contemporary furnishings provide a sleek contrast to the towering grey establishments either side of the building. City slickers rejoice, Tonic House Rooftop is the perfect combination of Melbourne’s flurrying streets and electric culture.
Located in Victoria’s central highlands, this old butter factory exhibits a nonchalant country glamour. Now owned by creative couple, florist Katie Marx and furniture maker Greg Hatton, the restored building is hired out for photo shoots and weddings.

The use of reclaimed materials and beautifully disheveled paint-stripped walls add to the faded, old-world charm of the industrial space.
