Choosing a Melbourne Wedding Venue

Choosing the perfect wedding venue isn’t easy. With so many considerations, including location, size, style and inclusions, it’s no surprise that couples invest so much time and energy into securing their dream wedding venue!

While there are so many to choose from all over Victoria, we’re here to tell you about one of our favourites – the hidden suburban gem that is The Button Factory. Located in the bayside suburb of Cheltenham, The Button Factory combines charm and history with an urban oasis, bursting with soul. The best part? It’s located just outside of the hustle and bustle!

Bayside couples have long awaited a blank canvas venue, and this one allows them to bring their vision to life by transforming each of the three spaces. That’s right, three unique locations all under the same roof! Starting with The Garden Room, a lush lovers paradise holding up to 150 guests. The Garden Room is the soul of the venue, a naturally sunlit event space that is home to a garden oasis with touches of modernity throughout making it the ideal spot to say I do or host an intimate dining experience. Its indoor/outdoor feel makes it perfect for Melbourne couples who don’t want to risk Mother Nature throwing a spin in their day.

That brings us to our next point – we love a venue with options. Guests of The Button Factory  are welcome to move between the indoor spaces, and the outdoor deck where they’re able to take a breather and revel in the sunset as daytime turns to night and the celebrations continue. The best part? If you opt for a winter wedding you can rest assured that you and your guests will stay warm and dry, not having to worry about heading outside unless you choose to. That means that the weather won’t become a deciding factor when choosing when to hold your Melbourne wedding!

From The Garden, move into The Gallery where guests can mingle, enjoy a perfectly-crafted grazing table from our catering specialist friends at Refresh, and sip on a post-ceremony cocktail, all whilst taking in the local artwork adorning the walls.

This is the perfect holding ground before the real fun begins, and it provides the perfect opportunity for the newly married couple to sneak out for portraits.

Now, the main event. Prepare for jaws to drop as you enter the light-filled Loft, featuring a saw tooth roof, crisp white walls and an open space that is ready to hold up to 200 of your nearest and dearest. Its floor plan makes it ideal for cocktail or seated events alike, with the ability to transform it to suit any aesthetic! The options are endless as to how you can use this space and make it your own.

Now, when tossing up wedding venue options, you need to ensure you’ve considered another crucial factor – portrait locations. Once you’ve locked in your photography dream team you’ll need to nail down the locations. Lucky for you, The Button Factory boasts plenty – just outside its doors. For couples looking for coastal photography opportunities, the venue sits less than 10 minutes away from the bay, allowing you to feel the breeze and unique backdrops without having to stray too far away from the festivities. Opting for a photographer who knows the area well, like the team at Art of Grace, means you can enjoy being whisked away and leave the guesswork to the pros!

Have we convinced you yet? The Button Factory is bound to surprise and delight, and create a celebration unlike any other you’ve experienced. With a plethora of features, this 1950’s venue combines history with a modern twist and has never been more ready to party – so what are you waiting for? We’ll see you soon!
