More on Weddings in Brisbane

As the capital of Queensland, Brisbane has so much to offer to couples who are looking to get married. Situated on the banks of the Brisbane river and near the coast (Moreton Bay), the peninsula is known for its Queenslander architecture (somewhat Victorian / Colonial, with a splash of Art Nouveau), rolling hills, and tropical climate. There are many gorgeous venues available in this city, with some of our favourites including the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art and Glengariff Historic Estate.


Popular Brisbane Wedding Venues & Prices

For those couples on a shoestring budget and those couples who are looking to spend, there are many options for wedding ceremony and reception venues! You can find something as low as $1750 for venue hire (Brookfield Hall), but the average cost of a Brisbane wedding venue is about $13,000. Of course, there are more luxurious options (like the Hillstone St. Lucia, where the “indulgent menu” is priced at $189.50 per person).

Brisbane is home to and popular for many waterfront weddings, as well as historic estates, parks, golf clubs, gardens, and restaurants. There’s really something for every bride and groom in Brisbane, whether you’re looking for something very elegant or something more laid-back and rustic.


Travel & Hotel Accommodations

Out-of-state and international guests may fly into the Brisbane Airport, which is a major international airport that services southeast Queensland. It is located about 20 minutes by car from the centre of Brisbane, but the Airtrain is also an excellent option for your guests, as it runs every 15 – 30 minutes, depending on the season. Both the Sunshine and Gold Coasts are located about an hour to an hour and a half away by car as well.

As one of the larger cities in Queensland and Australia, Brisbane has many hotels and Airbnb’s to offer for you and your guests’ accommodations. Hotels can start as low as $30 per night and can go up to $375 or more. The most popular Airbnb homes and rooms in the area cost approximately $30 – $150 per night, so there are a lot of affordable options available! For the bride and groom, there are many lovely hotel and honeymoon suites available, such as at the Stamford Plaza Brisbane or the Capri by Fraser Brisbane.


Weather and Climate Considerations

Brisbane, Queensland, has some of the warmest weather in Australia, which makes it so great for outdoor weddings! However, the summer months can be quite warm, with a high of 30oC in January. We suggest winter or spring weddings in Brisbane, as they are a little cooler (low of 10oC in July and an average low of 16oC / high of 26oC in the fall months (September to November). We also recommend avoiding the summer months as they can experience quite a bit of rainfall (an average of 8 – 9 days from December to March), and cyclones are also a possibility from mid-summer to early fall. As always, remember to ask your venues if they have suitable back-up locations or spaces in case of inclement weather.
